    Had mine for a week today. I've discovered the only thing I really don't like about it.

    When holding it in one hand, where my thumb lays, if I swipe down the screen too far it hits the BACK button on the buttom and changes my screen/closes my app! lol

    LOL happens to me too but I don't use swype. I've noticed the touchscreen is just as sensitive as my D2G was LOL

    I'll be new to the razr this time tomorrow. Coming from an iPhone, once you place the phone to your head the screen fades so there aren't any accidental key hits, hangups, etc. Does the razr have that function as well?

    I'm sure all touchscreen phones have this now, the screen turns off for the reason you stated.

    He means Swyping the notification screen at the top open, I think. Happened to me for a few days till I learned not to Swype so far down the screen. No problem now.

    It should, it has a proximity sensor or whatever the heck they are called, my old DX does it

    Mostly happens to me when I am trying to quickly scroll through a long web page or in the twitter app when trying to quickly get back to the top of the time line. My thumb gets out of control and goes over the back button and BOOM close the app. lol


    (and my OP was really not a complaint, just a little sillyness saying I find no serious faults with the phone, having some software issues but I think they can be fixed)

    Yes. So does Droid X when I used mine. However, my GF has a Droid X and hers sometimes doesn't blank the screen. She has a small face and short distance from nose to ear (she has a problem with most glasses frames being too long). So I don't think the proximity / light sensor is covered when she holds the Droid X to her ear. As a result, the screen doesn't blank sometimes during a call and her ear accidentally touches the virtual buttons. She's accidentally hung up or muted people while talking. She uses Bluetooth to remedy this.

    Biggest dislike is no dedicated camera button, coming from an X2, it used to be easy when I would take a picture of my GF and I in front of a restaurant we were at.

    Now I can use the front facing camera, but the quality isnt as good.

    I have uncovered through my wifes droid x that it is her hair that gets in the way, I believe that the proximity sensor on the DX is infrared and doesn't reflect back properly off hair, when she pulls her hair back the screen always dims when in a call, with her hair down she constantly face dials.
