I upgraded from my Droid X to a RAZR MAXX yesterday. First impressions:
- It's snappy!
- the screen size appears to be identical to the DX.
- I think I'm liking the soft keys - the mechanical keys on the DX were hard to press.
- I'm surprised that Blur on the MAXX is so much different than on the DX, particularly since they're both based on Gingerbread. Since I have to learn a new interface, I went ahead and installed Go Launcher. Either way I'll probably have to learn again when we get ICS. OTOH, maybe moto will make ICS look like GB/Blur which would truly suck!
- I just compared some pictures on the phone vs. my laptop screen and was very surprised in the color difference. Pictures on the phone look oversaturated and foliage is a very bright green.
- I was surprised that the DX still works. Well... No calls, but at home when it has a WiFi connection it seems to be perfectly happy.
Hello. I just got my Razr 2 days ago and really like it. lke it alot! WOW! Phones have come a long way. Fast. Like almost as fast as my ASUS PRIME us8ng my home highspeed wifi. I mean I am real mpressed. good job motorola.
Replaced my beloved DroidX with Razr Maxx and I'm loving it. I had wanted to get the Galaxy Nexus but decided that the Razr was the way to go. Anxiously awaiting ICS but I do love Gingerbread on this phone. It's just so fast and the colors pop and the battery is so much better than my X.

Been playing with my DRAZR for about a week. I think this must be the best phone I've had. A little about my Android history; Droid 1, HTC Incredible 1, and now the Razr. My first thoughts from package open was whoa, this thing is thin! I've been very cautious with this thing the past week, from fear of the infamous screen cracking issue that I've been reading up on at the Verizon community. Anyway, no cracks just yet!
Anyway, what is really love about this phone is the contrast of the screen...sure its AMOLED and I can see jaggies from close up, but from a general use distance it's great! Also the speed of the dual core, wahoo! Very smooth transitions on the home screens.
Cons - Battery Life! only when on 4G tho, which is actually another Con...whats with the 4G dropping all the time in well covered areas on the coverage map? My little indicator goes from blue to white all the time! lol Hope it's just a temp thing. Did a speed test compared to the 3G in the same area, and 3G was so much faster on the download. But 4G was still blazing fast on the upload, which I don't understand. (going from 500kb/s down and over 7mb/s up all in the same test???)
Other con is the default keyboard, multi-touch is nice, but the suggestion/autocorrect is bad imo.
Oh one more PRO: this phone has the best audio out of all the phones I've had.
I agree my 4g sometimes seem slower than my 3g. Interestingly though 4g is crazy fast on huge downloads.Originally Posted by JDuaneJ
