Yes, No you are not mis-reading the colors now (you are actually now reading the map & beginning to interpret the key)
Yes, I think so (consider what I said earlier, WiFi over-rides the 4G/3G connection on the Razr M so the device may not be really paying full attention to alternate Data Radios when on WiFi - so I would imagine even reading the signal stregth for 4G/3G might be inacurate when on WiFi). The phone is supposed to be a "Smart" phone, but it's smartness is somewhat dependent on the individual using it not to put speed bumps in it's path (User Settings like in the Tron Movie all hail the User ...)
Like I commented related to how I use my device, it makes sense to me that I follow these basic principals of use:
- when I want to run WiFi I turn off 4G/3G Data (like at home, at work, friends house, etc., etc.).
- when I want 4G/3G (means no accidental WiFi connection to some unknown WiFi) I turn off WiFi.
Consider a couple different scenario if I the user do not follow a basic principal set:
If on the other hand I leave 4G on when I'm running on a preferred WiFi ..., well this just does not make any sense to me because it seems there's just too many potential problems that can occur (if 4G is on it's sucking my battery even though the screen is not on, It's sucking max power in areas of low connectivity because it's hunting for a signal, it's broadcasting my location constantly to any/all app's that use location, it's potentially messing up who knows what because it's always on ...).
If on the other hand I leave WiFi on, when I expect to be on 4G/3G ..., well now here comes that list of potential problems 'cause it's a "Smart" phone. It knows that I know the phones WiFi is programmed to override 4G/3G (because it probably says so in the user manual - DUH!!). I think this is a great feature of the Razr M (one of the reasons for my selecting it, because I'd prefer WiFi connectivity over mobile-data and I run a dual-band router that can use the dual-band WiFi on the Razr M). So, say I'm happily driving down the road on 4G and i drive by the Verizon store where the rep-manager was gracious enough to provide me the WiFi/Pass for his network to download Motorola Tools to my lappy (last time I visited), and let's just say for example illustrative purposes here that I programmed that network into preferred so I can use it next time I have to wait in line in his store ... Well guess what my "Smart" phone is gonna do as I drive by on 4G (heck ya, it's gonna priority switch over to WiFi until that signal is out of range, then maybe it will grab onto the local library as I drive by too ... Then as I pull up to the Fry's Electronic store or the Radio Shack, maybe my "Smart" phone will accept offer to hand-shake with a mobile network that's gonna copy a system image from my phone (remember that guy, who for a $20 bought you beer, from in front of 7-11 when you where a sophomore - it'll be that guys grandson).
Sorry for the rant,
