    Of course, if you were in school how would you be on the phone all day? Oh, wait...never mind.

    (I apologize if these have been asked and answered many times before, but if they have, please point me in the right place if it's been discussed at length.)

    - Is it worth the extra money between the Razr and Razr Maxx? The only additional thing is the battery, is the extra battery life worth another $50 to $100 (depending on where I buy it)?

    - With a non-removable battery included, have there been problems restarting the phone if it freezes? Does it comes with a reliable way to restart the phone in these circumstances?

    - How sturdy is the phone? How scratch-resistant is the screen and sides? Have there been any problems with phones breaking from incidents that most phones could survive?

    - How is the camera? Are there any problems trying to take pictures with it in a normal, non-store environment?

    - How is the sound quality for listening to music?

    - Did you notice anything after purchase that wouldn't be noticed when looking at the phone in the store?

    - Are there any features not included that you wish would have been?

    - Would you recommend that a screen protector & case should be used with the phone? (Note: I don't care too much about thickening the phone up.)

    - Are there any good deals available now to get the phone at a reduced price?

    I'm sorry for all of the questions, but I'm trying to cover as much as I can. Any answers for any (or all) of these questions would help me out. Thank you.


    The RAZR MAXX is definately worth the extra $$$$$. As long as you leave the house in the morning with a battery charged to 100%, you will never have to worry about needing a plug during the day. The battery life is what battery life SHOULD be on a phone. It's something you will no longer worry about. As for the case, I recommend the silicone case sold by Verizon. It fits like a glove and adds almost NO heft to the phone. You can get silicone or the equivalent cases online too for a lot cheaper. Just google "silicone cases for Droid RAZR MAXX." The build quality is excellent and you DON'T need a screen protector. The gorilla glass is fabulous. And as has been stated, if the phone freezes, instead of removing the battery (which you obviously can't) just press and hold the down volume button until it reboots....I've heard differing fixes here...also you can press power and either down or up volume buttons at the same time and hold until it reboots. The phone is perfect and by far the best smartphone out there. Motorola is also known for its great call quality. You can't go wrong. All I ever buy is Motorola. Hope this helps.

    1. Is it worth the extra money between the Razr and Razr Maxx? The only additional thing is the battery, is the extra battery life worth another $50 to $100 (depending on where I buy it)?

    2. With a non-removable battery included, have there been problems restarting the phone if it freezes? Does it comes with a reliable way to restart the phone in these circumstances?

    3. How sturdy is the phone? How scratch-resistant is the screen and sides? Have there been any problems with phones breaking from incidents that most phones could survive?

    4. How is the camera? Are there any problems trying to take pictures with it in a normal, non-store environment?

    1. Absolutely. I wouldn't even consider regular razr.
    2. Over the past month it hasn't frozen yet and there is supposed to be button press combo to hard reset like on pc holding power button.
    3. I don't think you will find a more durable phone on verizon besides casio gzone phone.
    4. Camera quality is decent but it's on a slow side. Don't expect to take images every second like on nexus.
    5. Sound quality and volume are excellent.
    6. The operating system isn't smooth and fast like ice cream sandwich.
    7. Nfc and video projector.
    8. Yes. There are very nice and cheap protectors and cases on ebay. I wouldn't pay more then $10 for both http://www.ebay.com/itm/SMOKE-SKIN-T...#ht_1228wt_908 and http://www.ebay.com/itm/6X-EZ-HD-Cle...ht_1392wt_1186 combined. Any more and you are getting ripped off.
    9. Buy one get one free, and doesn't get better then that but you either have to be eligible for upgrade on both or start new line.
