Motorola Droid X May Require You to Take Sunglasses Off, We’re Still Excited

July 2, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The user manual for Motorola’s Droid X smartphone does contain a variety of information to make the use of the device easier for the consumer. However, one particular tip given in the manual’s “tips and tricks” section may be a little too obvious to the user. A tip on page 18 of the manual asks the user to remove their sunglasses, in case they are wearing one while using the device and cannot see the screen.

It is further explained in the manual that the screen brightness of the phone changes automatically on the basis of the lighting condition that is detected by it. Even though the tip is being seen as a correct-yet-obvious advice for the Droid X, it does seem to be a valid tip if the user is wearing polarized sunglasses.

Polarized sunglasses do not allow much of the screen light to reach the eyes, making the screen seem black. A user with polarized sunglasses who cannot see the screen might jump to the conclusion that the phone has been damaged.

The Motorola Droid X smartphone will be available through Verizon from July 15 onwards for a price of $199.99 after a mail-in rebate of $100 and a two-year contract with the carrier. The device boasts of features such as a 4.3-inch screen, 8 megapixel rear camera with dual flash, 1GHz OMAP processor, 512 MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
