    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.

    That's good. I know it's a hassle to deal with a car accident, though.

    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

    I gotta back Jimmy on this one

    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.
    Frustrating.

    Ok, just now looking over the posts I see Jimmy has expressed his concerns quite freely for some time...so while I share his level of concern, I can also understand the fanboy accusations. Happy Holiday season everyone...Peace on earth. I appreciate this forum community which has helped me bigtime over the years! :hail:

    Please see my post relative to this topic in the other thread. The best solution for the Razr Maxx family is CyanogenMod.

    I wouldn't do a FDR. It's probably a bad app. I think there is a battery eating bug in Isis Wallet. Have you used Isis Wallet? After I use my battery life seems to drop much faster than normal. The problem is the battery usage doesn't show under Isis Wallet. I think the bug causes some loop in the Android system - just a guess. Anyway, after I reboot and don't open Isis Wallet I'm fine until I do. I would uninstall it but 20% back on all purchases with my AmEx Serv until the end of January is pretty awesome. I'm hoping for an update to fix this.

    So if you have Isis Wallet reboot and don't open Isis Wallet for a few days and see if you're battery life is back to awesome. Post if that seems to do the trick.

    Just I get upset when you come to a forum for help, and fanboys are constantly knocking you around as if this phone is gold or something. And as for returning to the main screen, its horrendously slow.

    And Pere, you say this phone is not a computer? I beg to differ, its really a microcomputer with the function to call phone numbers.

    Look at the specs. Its a computer. A dumb phone, you would be right, like a flip phone from a few years ago, but these are mini computers.
