And as I've said before I really think you got a lemon! They are not that laggy.
I have never once "nearly killed myself" futzing with the GPS.
I can damn near whisper in a quiet room "OK Google" and it hears me.
Combine that with Navi???
OK Google. Naviagte to 1 2 3 Public Square Road, Cleveland Ohio 44145
It really is THAT easy.
And you KEEP ON with the "it's a $700 phone!!!!'
Yea TECHNICALLY it is but we know it's not. Material cost is less then $200. YOU did not pay $700. That's BS marketing.
Yes, I DID pay for $650 for my wifes iPhone. That's another thread.
As for Moto Migrate: I read that exact same review as you. And I'm betting whoever posted that DIDN'T REALLY EVEN USE IT. First off, what is the #1 reason people replace the phone? Not because it's broken. Because the contract is up.
It's a PHONE. It's not a computer. I don't WANT to have to install software to back it up. Especially iTunes which I hate.
And I promise you Moto Migrate is 20X faster then iTUnes BECAUSE I DON'T NEED TO SPEND AN HOUR INSTALLING iTUNES. hehehe
It works right out of the box.
And of course not even ANY of that... if I threw my phone in the ocean and had to get a new one.... you know what I'd lose?
Ummm.... my SMS history (and I wouldn't lose that if I used Google Hangouts for SMS).
and yea, I'd lose my installed apps but not my list of apps. But personally I like getting a new phone with NO apps. It's a good time to clean out the junk.
Do you play Ingress Jimmy?
No, but thanks for asking, it was my first accident ever. Now that I think of it, could it have been the curse of the RAZR? LOL.
I just always thought I would get into an accident using the GPS, and ironically I didnt.
Thankfully I have state farm. Had them since I started driving. I had a "no accident in ten years" waiver. So my premium stays. Best part is there was zero damage done to my car. His bumper was messed up
Having owned for 2 years each the Droid, Droid X, Razr Maxx, and now the Maxx HD; I gotta say Jimmy has valid points. Very positive experience with the first three phones, I loved android, and would never have considered anything other than Motorola. My razr maxx with Moto USB sycing of pix/video/music files under ICS was my happiest time! Ever since JellyBean, the maxx and maxx HD have been serious disappointments. I keep looking for another music player that will sync music files to external SD...now, I"m clearing the cache partition every few days. I just used the Maxx HD to video my son's graduation, and the phone did so poorly with the stage lighting, the video is basically white with some signs of movement; it's unviewable. And I'll never have that opportunity again. Never had that level of a problem with the video recorder of a cell phone.
Maybe I have a lemon; but I'm now on my third razr maxx HD phone; my first didn't recognized the microSD card; and the second one screen cracked while applying the screen protector with the squeegee; I was later charged $300 by VZW. So I don't dare ask for a replacement.
I hate the thought of buying an iPHone, but Google has become the very thing despised about Apple; the deception re. built-in obsolence by design, forcing yearly replacement of the phones. We should be told these phones will fail in a year; that's fine, as long as manufacturers notify us. Now VZW has Early Edge program to get you every year.
