    With insurance, yes, but the insurance is an incredible ripoff. It's something in the range of 1% a month of the cost of the phone. That's like buying a $30,000 car and paying $300 a month for insurance

    What's your reasoning behind this? Do you own either a Razr or Nexus?

    I'm a bit torn and have been since the two phones debuted. I went with the Razr thinking the Nexus would be a while. The Razr is great and a lot nicer than my X1 but here's my BIG issue: software bugs and lack of development.

    Take a look at the support and hack forums. They are horrid! Lots of bug reports and the only thing going on is to wait for ICS. I haven't had any issues other than the "internet radio" part not functioning ( i use an app instead and that works) but I'd love to see some custom roms batted around. We are all waiting it seems for a big fix or two to make the Razr what it should be.

    So Nexus or Razr? I'm betting the Nexus will get a lot more development a lot faster while Razr people will have to wait and hope for salvation. And when we get it, it will be too late.

    That's where it really depends on how you use your phone and what you want to do with it. I spent months on my D1, rooted, using various ROMs and hacks, etc. What did it really get me in the end? Nothing but aggravation as they were all unstable in one aspect or another. I spent the last 6 months of my D1 use back to stock with no root, and no headache.

    Aside from what is now apparent as network issues, my RAZR has been rock solid and I am perfectly happy with it.

    A lithium battery lasts may 1.5-2 years, so the need to replace the battery isn't that far away. I talked to Motorola and got this: battery replacement requires sending the phone back to them and costs not less than $110 (or maybe more). Talk about a deal breaker.
    Lithium ion is good for about 7 years, I still have both lithium ion batteries for my Makita drills and they both work 100%, had them for 4.5-5 years now, I believe these batteries included in the razr are probably superior to the one on my drills, so I would guess 10 years of good use, my DX is also a year and a half and is in great use, had a 1st gen iPod touch for 4 years.... So its DEFINITELY longer than 2 years

    The Razr has root access, give the devs time its still new. The nexus will have its issues to wait and see. There will be some love for the Razr I'm sure.

    Ditto. I spent way too much time trying to keep my OG Droid current while still being useable which was no easy task.
    Now with the Razr I'm finally enjoying using my phone again. Well built, fast and ICS ready.

    I'm not having any issues with my RAZR at all and overall the problems are very minimal. As you know with ANY device issues will be present but the RAZR is not a bug ridden device. Its actually a pretty solid piece of equipment.

    In regards to development I personally don't feel the need to flash ROMS on this handset. Its solid and reliable otb with a ton of functionality already integrated into the OS. I flashed a lot of ROMS to take advantage of all the different functionalities and performance boosts that roms presented but today's equipment is way more capable than product from 2 years ago.

    Flashing ROMS is really not a necessity anymore in my honest opinion. Motos UI is not intrusive at all and its smooth as butter. Same thing with Touchwiz. Smooth,fast and nice looking. The manufactuers UI's are fast and smooth and dont lack. I think the measure of a great device is if the handset is a phenomenal experience otb. In my opinion the RAZR meets that. Having to hack a device to make it enjoyable is something I'm glad I don't have to deal with.

    I was a hardcore flasher but its nice not to spend countless hours fussing and flashing looking for that "perfect" ROM. Im not waiting for salvation. Gingerbread on the RAZR is flawless and fast. I am not waiting for ICS. It will get here when it gets here.

    Anyway those are my thoughts.

    The life span of a Lithium ion battery is dependent on the amount of charge cycles, so one can not really base it on years. Everyone's phone usage differs, so while one person may go through a charge cycle per day, another may take two or three days to go through one. Also, the end of life for a Lithium ion battery is considered to be 70% capacity. The absolute best case scenario before reaching said capacity, would be around 4000/5000 charge cycles and worse case, around 500 charge cycles. I'd say the average user should have no problems at all getting through the length of his/her contract without having to replace their battery. The most important thing to remember is, the less depth of charge, the longer the life span of the battery. If you discharge your battery daily from 100-0% expect its life span to be shortened immensely.

    I rooted, but this describes me almost to a tee. After Froyo came out....I eventually went with a stock ROM on my Droid 1. Got the DX1 and ran a total of 1 ROM on it. It may be back to stock now, dont know. I do know after I got my DX1....I almost abandoned my D1 as far as ROMs. Tried a few GB ones, went back to a Froyo one that I need to remove and go back to a stock one.

    Even with the custom UI's Android and the hardware has come a long way since 2008, 2009. I see no need to overclock with all these current phones. And custom ROMs...for me...all I really want is a few features that might can be found on the Market. Like the posts above said...I'm back to actually enjoying and using my phone again....not trying to find the most stable ROM, kernel combo. Me enjoying my phone again started with my Droid 1 and stock Froyo, no custom ROM.
