    Some reviewers have been pointing out that the RAZR MAXX HD may not be all it's cracked up to be. Again, judgement is in the eye of the beholder. But some are reporting smeared, kinda like when you press down on an LCD screen and see an array of rainbow colors. But just something to keep in mind before you buy... test all your choices and make sure it's what you want!

    Think this will affect your decision?

    This type of issue isn't too uncommon among first release phones. Depends on how widespread it is.

    Yea.....is either a manufacturing defect.....or a design flaw. I'm leaning towards manufacturing defect. I just sent in my PS Vita for a warranty issue. My screen was jumping and would only stop if I held down the power button and the PS button didnt work. I think they just gave a a new system instead of fixing it. My screen was scratched up and it looks new.

    Just checked the screws and serial number, they just game a a new system...I wondered why it got sent back so fast....lol.

    Reminds me a lot of the DroidX. I had three replacement phones due to things like this. I was almost second guessing myself for switching to the s3 and not waiting for the hd. However, this story confirms that I made the right decision. No more Motorolas for me.

    The funny thing is...I had a Droid X, no issues, a RAZR, no issues, a Maxx HD...no issues.

    Its really hard to say if its a defect or design flaw or if it effect alot of ppl. Bad batches do happen too.

    Droid x never had one flaw for me. Bionic. Still running strong and loving it.

    Just goes to show you that it's all a matter of perspective and experience. Manufacturers need to do everything in their power to eliminate these types of problems because for the person that buys this phone and has the above experience, will most likely not give motorola another chance. I know I won't. I bought my S3 and have had an amazing experience so far and chances are, Samsung has a customer for a long time.

    Until Samsung messes up and they will. They all do. Vendors go up and down. 30 years ago Ford made junk for cars and now they are making some of the best out there. Not giving you a hard time...I am jumping ship on Moto also after the Bionic fiasco. Just waiting to see the Note 2 on Verizon before I decide on that or the S3. Wife has had the S3 for several weeks. Touchwiz is amazing and the phone is rock solid.

    So to answer the original question does this possible issue impact my decision, no because I have already made my decision. But it does reaffirm to me that I am making the right decision to jump ship.

    Anyone have a pic of what this flaw looks like? I never saw it on my DroidX, and I have two RazR HD's and they both seem fine, but I don't what I am looking for...

    Not that this hasn't happened on at least one person's HD but I've yet to see one report of this problem on people with HD's in this forum. My best guess is it is a manufacturer defect covered by warranty.

    What was the fiasco? I'm actually impressed with Motorola for creating an ICS update for the Droid Bionic. I was fully expecting them to leave you Bionic users in the wind.

    besides for software and firmware issues my thunderbolt never had any problems. It's been dropped numerous times and gotten wet numerous times a little banged up but still works. Just if verizon and htc could ever fix the software/firmware issues but unfortunately with it being near the end of it's life cycle with only a few updates left that is very unlikely to happen.
