    Don't touch that Droid!

    Check this out. It appears that a bird in the hand may be worth two in the bush, but not so when it comes to the new Droid RAZR M.

    There are a few threads over in the Moto Support Forums about this - you should post this there as well - they need to keep hearing about this, at least to the point where they might respond...

    I agree, awesome device, but I think it's packed so tight, combined with the metal (aluminum?) frame, that it does suffer from attenuation like the iPhone 4. Some of that is inevitable on just about any device. But it does seem to affect things.

    It looks like, at least where you're at in this video, it's a weak 4G area? Is that true?

    If you're in a strong 4G area, or an area with 3G only, you'll probably rarely, if ever, notice. But the "fringers" out there (sorry, bad made-up word!) will see it more often - unless, of course, you slap a case on that bad boy. Though in some cases, the case might not help as much as the thick paper towel wrap you've got there.

    I'd also like to add a silver lining to this...

    A year ago, if any of the LTE phones were having this problem, you (the collective "you") would've dropped data altogether, and might've even struggled to get it back without toggling AP mode or rebooting or whatever. In my experience over the last few weeks, when it's switched (even back and forth, like in a test you just did), it's been instantaneous, without losing data. Might not be the case all the time, but so far, they at least seem to have the kinks worked out with regard to the handoff between 3G/4G - which is what the S4 processor was supposed to be good at anyway.

    Does an otterbox defender act as a paper towel for this phone? Or does it act more like your hand?? Just curious

    Because the otterbox is a polycarbonate case, I would think it should work just fine.

    Kewl... I hope the HD doesn't have this issue... but if it does, I guess slapping an otterbox defender on it should help
