I have to ask, why is the Razr so unstable? My foray into the Android OS, Moto, and Razr is fairly new (~6 mos), but with all the really oddball problems and the need to perform FDR's to fix them, it really reminds me of the early days of windows and how unstable they were. Remember? Close all programs, close windows, reboot, open windows, open your program and your problem may or may not be fixed. And if you called MS (when it was still free to do so), they told you to do the same thing. They have come a long way.
These are the possibilities for the problems we are experiencing on the Razr off the top of my head.
1. Is it the phone owners fault?
2. Is it the Android OS itself?
3. Is it the phone/ hardware build by Moto?
4. Is it the apps themselves and not enough control/testing by Google before releasing for use in "Play Store"?
3. Is it the implementation of the OS on Razr by Moto/VZW?
5. Yes in some cases I have seen here. But for the most part, I feel people are using their phones responsibly.
2. From what I have read, the android platform is reported to be very stable.
3. This might be a possibility, I truly don't know enough about it to offer an opinion.
4. I suspect this is probably a good part of the problem.
5. I feel this too probably shares a good part of the responsibility.
I may have left out some other causes for the instability seen on the Razr, If so offer up your observations and opinions. My opinion to these questions is shown in an ascending order of responsibility with "1, 2, and 3" being the least responsible and "4 & 5" bearing the most responsibility.
One last note: I owned a smartphone operating on webOS and never had to do a FDR in over 2 years, don't even know if there was one. To be fair to the Razr, I went 6 mos without doing one, never had a problem serious enough to warrant one. I finally performed one to clear up a problem with the firm key "voice search", and it did not help. So I guess you could say it was not warranted and I still have not "needed" to do one.
So please, "What say you?"
