    Take it back if you are within your 2 weeks. No use keeping a phone you don't like.

    You should be more specific about what you don't like or are having problems with. Just saying that you don't like the phone doesn't help anyone make a decision about it.

    If you know you can't take average battery life, should have gotten the Maxx. Instead of making a choice you should have thought about and then complaining about it. I know I don't like onions so I don't eat em. Makes no sense to order food with onions and then get mad at the chef.

    I have had my RAZR since November. I have had absolutely no problems with it at all. Right now my battery is at 50% and it has been unplugged for 19 hrs now. The only time it got warm was when I was tethering for a long period of time. I'm getting tired of people slamming the RAZR when they don't make the effort to charge it or take care of it properly. I see to many people spend a bunch of money on a phone and just toss it around. If you want a phone to toss around get a Nokia 5190

    As an owner of the Razr Maxx all i can say is that i love the phone. I'm rooted, running stock rom. Yes, it does get hot sometimes for no reason (most likely an app in the background). Learn to use the smart actions app or download Juice Defender free from the market, it will double your battery life.

    Great device! I agree.......battery life does suck though. Everyone knows that. You should be able to use the phone for what it is. Not "oh no, i better not use it right now, I need battery for later" Screw that with a capital "S"

    You should not have to cut off data at night, put it in sleep mode all the time, keep the screen on low brightness and all the other crap just to get through a day (a day if your lucky)

    I get a full day easy...I do shut off data and synching at night because it sits next to me ( I use it as an alarm clock)

    I'm fine with having to charge my phone up at night before bed and using it the next day. Part of life. I'm not one to complain about things. I'm healthy, able to put food on the table, have a roof over my head, clothes on my back and the luxury of owning a smartphone. I take NOTHING for granted after what I have seen and experienced. Thank you thank you thank you.....thats all I have to say :)

    Buy the battery charger at verizon for $40. What i did. I carry it around everyday and when i need a charge after 12 hours i charge it. I get battery life and can use it if i need to on the go. With the exception of the maxx, dont know of anything thats 4g thats getting baterry life that last long as a razr. Im sure im wrong about that but the razr rocks! Get the baterry extender. Worth the money!

    I don't get why people complain about the battery life of the RAZR. It is a phone, the battery will not stay charged for weeks on end. If you expect that, then maybe you shouldn't own a cell phone. With that said, if you know how to properly use your phone, you can easily get 12-15 hours from it with normal use. I, along with many others here, have been able to go 24 hours or more on a single charge.

    All I can say to all the Razr haters is "wah". If y'all "supposedly" did research before buying it you would've known the battery life isn't up to par and that the only phone out there right now.is the GNex. I don't understand why people are crying and whining over battery life when its been a known issue which is why the Maxx came out months later. And also everyone including my dead grandmother knew ICS is stock on the GNex and that it'll come to other devices later.

    I'm more than happy with my Razr and wouldn't trade it for anything right now. In fact my daughters getting the Razr slider, aka the Droid 4 tomorrow :D

    I don't know why everyone is always excited to get the 'latest and greatest' because oftentimes the 'latest and greatest' isn't ready for prime time. Sure, I would like improvements, but I'm content to let others work the bugs out before ICS gets released. The Razr/Maxx works great as is. YMMV

    I love my RAZR!!! It has much more capability than I expected. The phone stays cool all day long for me, I do use wifi most of the time.
    The battery life (non Maxx) is crazy good. I don't even use smart actions anymore, everything is on all the time. I have work email and yahoo
    mail pushing all day. I take my phone off the charger at 7am and at 10pm I'm still at 90%. That's remarkable battery performance. The phone
    is very light, and I like that.

    The lapdock 500 adds a new dimension, in combination with several apps below; I am free from my desk. With the phone and Lapdoc I can go 8 hours
    straight as a moble office on a full charge; no outlet required. The trackpad is rubbish, but I like using a mouse anyway.

    VPN anyconnect
    Caldav Sync
    Jabiru
    Webtop Firfox
    email (work account)
    connectbot
    foxfi if I need my laptop in a pinch.

    All this capability with a non-rooted android platform is amazing.

    Only 10% loss in 15 hours. Hard to believe on a regular Razr. Unless of course you are using the dock with it during the day. The dock charges the phone as you use it.

    Amen brother! My late father would say," DONT waste a good worry!" I lost him last week and will not get any new advice or cynicism... So, anything else in life that makes my efforts a little easier is gravy And for a health conscious person, I LOVE GRAVY! :)
