First off, I'm sorry for the uber negative title, but I wanted to grab some attention. Been a member of the forums for almost three years now... had an OG droid and have been a contributer on the forums, posted movies on how to use all the phones I've owned and really enjoyed everything droid until this one.
Let me also say that I have a Razr for work and have noticed some major differences in comparison. I know I'll get flames and I don't care that much, I just wanted to get my opinion out there and possibly get some "STFU, here's how to get around this" responses. Here are the major downsides I've seen:
1. The screen on my phone has cracked, my two brothers also have a nexus and they've cracked. How did mine crack? With being in my phone and keys in the pocket. My OG Droid that I STILL have doesn't have a scratch on it and I've had it since November 2009.
2. 4G reception sucks. The Razr and Nexus are sitting on my desk right now... I see 3 bars of 4g on the Razr and 1 bar of 4g on the nexus.
3. Dropped Calls!! I get at least 5 dropped calls a week. I'm constantly on my phone for various reasons and it constantly lets me down.
4. This is a silly one (and maybe someone knows a work around for this)... but I use this phone for conference calls A LOT... I'll be on a call on speaker phone and the screen will go black. I can't toggle the screen to come back on after it's gone black unless I plug in the charger. If I hit the button on the top right, it kills the call, if I hit the volume rocker, nothing happens... MAJOR pain in the behind for those of us who use them frequently for work.......
Notice I'm not mentioning classic problems like volume, heat, etc.
Let me know if I'm way out of line with my assertations or not... I was just very disappointed with this phone overall... oh well, here's to 2014!!!!!!!!
