    The reason I ask is because my wife will be due for a new phone soon. She tends to not see the value in buying a more high end phone and her last pick was the Incredible 2. Not a horrible phone, but everytime she uses my Razr...she's rather jealous, lol.

    From what I can tell, most Moto users keep their phones for a long time and seem pretty happy with them and have better luck than other phones. Is this a proper assessment, or am I just biased?

    I'm trying to talk my wife into grabbing Moto's next big offering, which is the Fighter? HD? I think? Should be a fine phone either way.

    I love my Razr personally. Been a great phone for the last 8 months.

    I always seem to come back top Moto, if she can wait a little bit get the HD, it'll have the display close to the iPhone's, if she can't the Razr is pretty cheap through Amazon or of the like

    The best of anything is always subjective. I personally love moto devices... and eagerly await the next moto device.. the vanquish/HD/blade/phone that I desperately want ;) the pic was also taken with a maxx.. so be sure to add it to the count :)

    DROID RAZR MAXXIMIZED!!!! PREPARE TO BE VANQUISHED!!!

    I love my Motorola, but HTC is making awesome phones too. I stay away from Samsung and LG.

    I have always had the best luck with moto devices. A V60, V90, Droid, Droid X, Bionic, Razr, and a Razr Maxx. All flawless devices with top quality build and reception. I have had a few LG and Samsung devices and they don't even compare.

    Motorola is, has been, and will remain the best radio manufacturers. Their phones sound better in comparison to their competition and they hold a call better. Their build quality is also second to none IMHO. Yes, there are better phones out there if you're looking for a higher resolution, or faster access to the most recent software builds, or want an unlocked bootloader, but mash all the pros and cons together & put them in a blender, Motorola still rises to the top.

    Not too long ago I said that the RAZR would be my last Moto phone, well I can't see myself with a samsung phone or any other maker. Ever since I got the original RAZR, I knew I could never go to another maker. I'm currently waiting on the new Moto phone and I'm not buying into the GSIII hype. Loyal Moto costumer here.

    I too like the HTC phones, and was really close to going HTC for my first Android phone, since I was at that time enamored with the Sense features. I had an HTC XV-6800 Windows based phone right before it, so it was from HTC to the OG Droid (D1), rather than to the DINC. I never looked back. After holding both phones in my hands and feeling the difference in chassis design, and then playing with Sense for a while the initial appeal of Sense took a back seat to the build quality of the OG Droid. Since I have discovered several good "Sense" based Clock/Weather widgets, I now realize all I liked about Sense was the Clock/Weather.

    Motorola doesn't have the best screens or cameras. However, their build quality and software stability is by far the best.

    And I didn't care for coworkers fascinates. Two of them had nothing but problems with theirs. One finally got a maxx as a warranty replacement and the other got an incredible 2.

    My sister has a razr and my mom has the maxx and while nice, I hate holding them along with the ui.
