Hello, I currently have an HTC Thunderbolt. I've only had it for about 5 months now, but the battery is absolutely horrible so I'm thinking about upgrading and the Droid Razr Maxx looks very appealing. The claimed battery life on this thing looks amazing. A friend of mine has the Droid Razr and I like his, I'm assuming the Maxx is about the same except I'm guessing it's as thick as the hump at the top of the Droid Razr all the way down the phone to accomodate the thicker battery.
I had a few questions about the Razr Maxx for people that already have them.
First, on the battery. I see the thread about bad battery life here. Is this a common problem or is the battery life on this phone generally as good as they claim?
Two, rooting. I use my phone for tethering a lot so rooting is a necessity for me. Can the Droid Razr Maxx be rooted with the same root method in the Droid Razr forum? If not, is there a way to root it?
Three, gps locking. How long from a cold start does it take to get a GPS lock on average? That is another complaint of mine about the htc thunderbolt, it can take over a minute sometimes to get a gps lock. This is highly annoying when trying to get directions.
Finally, custom roms. This isn't as big of a deal as long as I can root, but are there custom roms that work on the Maxx yet?
I appreciate anyones time to answer
