This is by no means a criticism of the RAZR itself. The intent of this post is not to antagonize current RAZR owners, just to provide information to those considering the purchase of an LTE device. The truth of the matter is, I very well may end up with a RAZR a few months from now. But as of now, I can't justify wasting my upgrade, and spending $250, on a communication device that provides me less communications than my year and a half old device. Despite being in an area supposedly covered by 4G, I rarely have 4G coverage. Even worse, I constantly lose 3G coverage. While typing this, my 4G signal popped up for a few seconds, went to 3G, and then lost the data connection.
Aside from the network, I did find a few little things that bugged me. I love the speed of the device, the way it flows, and the version of Blur that's included. However, when compared to my DX, there were a number of ways I found this device flat out inferior. Notification lights don't work as well, vibration is barely noticeable, the Swift Key X keyboard is not as responsive, and the ear piece rattles when on a phone call. I tried all the recommended fixes for these issues, with no improvement.
Finally, while the Smart Actions are kind of cool, I found the primary use of them somewhat ironic. It seems the Smart Action most people use is to disable communications when the screen goes off, to improve battery life. It seems somewhat bizarre to me, that the new wave of technology requires us to disable communications on a communications device, so that the device can maintain power.
Again... I still believe this is the best 4G device out there. I just don't think 4G devices are ready for prime time (in my area).
