    With all the talk of the gsiii, RAZR hd, and droid dna ect. Do you still consider the RAZR/RAZR maxx a top devise? I do. Obviously I would take the HD over the razr. And maybe the gs3 if it was free, but I look at phones at verizon every few weeks and honestly I still feel like mine is top 3 in my mind. What do you think? Anyone still love the RAZR? Or does anyone hate it?

    Josh, you bring up a good point. The Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx are comparable to the original Droid although I'm sure original Droid users are going to umm come down on me about that. To clarify, the OG Droid set the bar at new levels which were considerably higher than prior levels of technology and the competition was a bit floored by it. I believe in a similar fashion the original Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx have also pushed the bar up considerably especially with regard to the battery size of the Droid Razr Maxx. And like the original Droid, I believe the Droid Razr and Razr Maxx have staying power comparable to the OG Droid, simply because of its unique style and advanced technology.

    I wouldn't trade my Razr Maxx unless someone gave me an HD Maxx. I've always had Motorola phones and unless someone blows me away with a great phone, that's about the only way I would change. I can do everything that I need to do, so I am happy. I agree in that the Razr is still a top tier phone.

    My son and a few of relatives have the GSIII and although it has some nice features the drop calls, lost data and other radio associated problems continue to plague the Samsung devices. Yes, maybe they are getting better, but they are not on the same playing field in terms of radio/antenna technology as Motorola. If went and took a good look at the Droid DNA...nice, but again...not on the same field of play as the Droid Maxx, in my opinion. Bottom line for me is given the dependability of the Razr Maxx and the build quality, and yes I like Blur better that HTC or Samsungs UIs, you can't beat the Maxx. As far as camera, although important to some, if I want professional quality pictures I use my Nikon camera.

    I agree. I have had HTC and others, but Motorola [even with the occasional problems] has by far the best radio/antenna technology. What good is a pretty phone if you can not access what you need? I also agree about Blur.

    I don't have to have the newest and greatest device. For now, I'm happy with my Razr.

    I'd trade my Razr for a Maxx in a heartbeat. Short of that (and maybe the SIII) nothing out there could make me upgrade at the moment.

    I still like mine a lot. I went to Verizon a couple of weeks ago and looked at the gsIII, Maxx HD and DNA. All are nice phones but it's not enough to make me want to replace the maxx at this point. I also was reading the December issue of consumer reports and they had the regular maxx not hd rated #1 over the GSIII. I got a kick outta that..... I guess being able to make good reliable phone calls is still important.....

    I am very happy with mine. I also have an Atrix HD for work, and much prefer the Razr to the Atrix. It might be the work phone's AT&T versus my Razr on Verizon, but I find the Razr much more intuitive and it has a better heft and feel to it.

    Oh, by the way, I am also a licensed amateur radio operator. I can tell you that Motorola is high quality hardware. In my perspective, their hardware is top-notch.

    Like Dad used to say, you can outrun Ford, you can outrun Chevy, but you cannot outrun Motorola!

    I swapped from a Moto DROID X to my RAZR... As of right now, there isn't a phone available to get me to swap again.

    Sent from my RAZR most likely while I was on a toilet somewhere...

    I swapped from a htc droid incredible to a droid razr and its been great. No dropped calls no cutting off or powering off in the middle of a call like the inc would do. Been great.

    As a rooted user I have reservations concerning the RAZR. Its locked bootloader has plagued me since i got it and started to to tinker with it. Prior to rooting i had 4 RAZRs go bad on me in a row. Since then 5 more have failed me. Various things have gone wrong such as randomly bootlooping, a camera that was just a black screen, and 3 times the headphone jack stopped working... so i like it because I have learned all about it. But i hate it for obvious reasons.

    You've gone through 9 RAZR's in a year? No offense, but what are you doing to them?

    Verizon's "Like New" Policy.

    It always seems with no matter what phone I have once the switch has been made to the "Like New" device it will take at least 3 before I find one that works right. Now I will just have to tough out the minor issues because I really like the Razr Maxx. 6 months no issues yet!

    Teksavag have any of the phones that Verizon replaced been rooted? I'm just curious how close they look at that. I just recently rooted and installed Google now using the method that you came up with.

    Yes all of them had been rooted but I unrooted with voodoo ota rootkeeper app on a couple and recovered some completely to stock. The rest were in a boot loop and they wouldn't have been able to tell anyway.

    I definitely still think the RAZR and RAZR MAXX (the original XT912 devices) are top tier phones.

    Motorola has been making radio hardware for a long time... they know what they are doing. Samsung is much more of a newbie in that respect, although they should be able to get better radio equipment into their top devices. I have heard of similar gripes about the Galaxy S2.

    I would certainly take a RAZR HD or MAXX HD, but wouldn't want to re-up the 2 yr contract to do it. I would definitely trade mine for a Maxx XT912, just to get the battery life extended. However, now that I've figured out how to get the batter life into an acceptable state, I'm cool with this thing. I was previously getting really frustrated with it after I changed jobs and had it sitting there draining on 4G all day and was using it a good bit more during biz hours.
