I don't agree. With the Razr they introduced great build materials that don't interfere with signal, a water proof nano-coating over the electronics, and with the Maxx a huge battery. If you consider not having a phone with a 1280x720 display falling behind, then I guess they have. Realistically, a 720p display is of no practical value to most people. Maybe qHD but 720 (over qHD) adds almost no noticeable benefit while it will require more power and make the graphics subsystem work harder (slower graphics performance, perceivable or not). I like moto hardware better than HTC or Samsung typically because of ports and expandability. There is only one other phone with 2GB of RAM right now so if they put theirs out with 1GB, as much as I don't want that, you can hardly say they have fallen behind.
