i had the boinic for 5 months and the biggest problem i had was the constant data dropping. I would look at the phone and there was no data especially when switching from 4g to 3g area. many times it took up to ten minutes to acquire a 3g sginal. I have had the razr maxx now for a month and the data drop is gone.. The phone switchs flawlessy from 4g right to 3g like it should. Also the razr maxx battery is better than the ext battery on my bionic. This is how a phone should be. This is the best phone i have ever used. It has excellent battery life and works flawlessy. If anyone is on the fence i suggest u pick it up. There is a reason that the phone is backordered.
