Droid X Falls Into Campfire – Keeps On Ticking [Images]


There’s nothing quite like like the taste of fresh toasted marshmallows from the campfire on a warm summer night. The same goes for this Motorola Droid X who almost met an early demise after its owner had a “one too many,” and dropped the X face first into a blazing campfire. I’m sure you’re wondering, did the Droid X make it? Well, it looks like the X is fully functional with the touch screen, physical buttons, camera and earpiece/speaker in mostly working condition. Oh man, those Droids… they do.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Yeah, I didn’t need to sleep at all tonight.

    1. Droid X will get you… O_o

  2. Takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin.

    Motorola always was one of those companies that seemed to be able to get excellent build quality out of plastic. HTC’s build quality is probably better, but they also use higher tier materials usually, and I like how Moto can make strong products with generic materials.

  3. This is really bizarre.. my droid x fell into a campfire last year. same thing kept working. A friend of mine is actually using it now.

  4. regardless of whether it works or not, I wouldn’t want to pull that mutilated mess out of a phone out in front of people lol.

  5. After owning this phone for 2 years, it deserves a fiery death back to hell where it came from.

    1. Are you implying it’s given you hell? Cause it has been one of the best phones many of us have owned.

      1. I am indeed.

  6. Glad to know my phone can hold out extreme temperatures.. surprised this never happened to me with how hot the battery gets..

  7. OP here. I’m honored to be mentioned on phandroid!

  8. That phone is a friggin’ tank.

  9. I left my Droid X out in a thunderstorm one night. It spent the full night sitting out in the mud getting rained on, and lived to tell the tale.

    It is still fully functional from the camera to the speaker to the touch screen. What a great phone! I had so much fun with it once the bootloader was quasi-unlocked!
