    I have a droid pro and am thinking about switching to a razr or razr maxx as my next phone. I have 2 concerns about it.

    First, a coworker of mine got one and broke 3 digitizers on 3 phones just because of the phone flexing. Anyone heard of that/does the maxx do the same thing? Im pretty sure an otterbox will fix thatthat

    Second, how hard is it to root it? I have to disable the camera for work and the only way that I know of to do that other then destruction of the cameras is to root it and remove the camera app.

    Welcome. An otter box should solve any issue with the construction of the phone. They are easy to root, just check out the razr development area or head to Droid RAZR Forum - Motorola Droid RAZR Community and check out the rooting section there

    I'd second the recommendation of the Otterbox case if you don't mind a bit of extra weight on the Maxx. I have the Otterbox Commuter and I could use it as a hockey puck without (much) worry.

    The Maxx is not as thin as the OG Razr so I bet that flex issue wont be a concern. It's pretty easy to root the phone and then I'd suggest either freezing the camera apk with TiBu or changing the file name with root explorer.

    Razr Maxx is highly recommended. Pay the extra money and get it. The battery is well worth it. Standard razr is 6 to 10 hours where my maxx is currently on hour 26 with 40% battery left

    Yes, I second that. The Maxx an awesome phone. If you can even call it a phone. I barely make phone calls on mine. Its more like a hand held computer. But I love it so! dancedroiddancedroid

    its the best phone out right now by far
    i just upgraded from a droid x and originally got the rezound because i got a really sweet deal on it with that leap year day sale
    99 dollars and 50 off with the upgrade
    on the 3rd day with the rezound it went into a boot loop i immediately gathered up all the packaging and brought it back
    payed the extra money + 35 restock and lost out on the sale of course and got the maxx
    but it was well worth it
    this phone is awesome

    Do not get the MAxx

    I got one and it has made my life miserable. I love to complain about the things in my life, and this d@mn phone has taken that pleasure away from me. It works great. It looks great. It last over 48 hours on a charge. It's signal is amazing. It freakin does everything a great phone should and I can not find a thing to complain about.
    Should never have given up my last phone. Now that one kept me busy with things to complain about. Dang MAxx!:frown:

    Thanks for the advice. I will be getting a razr maxx next week when my plan is up. Just one question though... what is TiBu? I can't find it on the market

    TiBu is short for "titanium backup" which is a app used to back up your device. Now get your Maxx as fast as you can!! Greatest phone to date!!! I am at 30 hours and 19 minutes and still have 40% battery. Believe me, I utilize my phone to. Browser, Facebook, tons of texting and of course phone calls along with words with friends and Wheres my water...ect...this thing is solid!!!

    ive got my heart set on getting the Maxx in may when im eligible for an upgrade. i played with it a little at verizon inside the mall 2day and i love it. ive already bought a wood grain sticker from skinomi and a clear case for it. it will look like the picture below. i think its very sexy and stylish. cant wait View attachment 48565
    update: they gave me an early upgrade so got it on 4/20. its awesome. im more in love w/this phone now that its mine. everything is great. i honestly think rite now, this is the best phone on verizon

    Very neat. I'd like to see someone actually make a wood case for it, possibly out of Bamboo, for instance.
