    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?

    Nada. I have been nothing but good to them. I've just had rotten luck and got some really bad eggs...

    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.

    I don't miss my Razr Maxx in the least. The Maxx HD was a big improvement for me. :D

    I had the maxx HD... not a big change.. idk how it is with jelly bean... but it wasn't much of a change.. it was snappier at first... then the one I had started crashing...

    But the ones that work right are a little quicker than the maxx g1... I don't like the on screen buttons either... they take up too much realestate.. that's just me though.
