    Well i haven't had Verizon since the original flip phone razr lol... I am just switching over from AT&T with the samsung captivate (was fun to mess with just dosent cut it anymore) not to mention att service in my town is only edge >.<. So i am just wondering what to expect. I got a brand new one for .01 with a 2year contract is it going to be alot different then the captivate or pretty much same principle but more power... And for those wondering yes i bought my otterbox defender and already have the zagg kit waiting at home :D. So i want to hear what people think about this phone im excited but i wanna know i can't wait till monday its killing me >.>

    Any paid apps that you have will be linked to your gmail account. As mentioned previously, free apps will have to be downloaded manually. Though if you are rooted you could use a program like titanium backup to make backups of your apps then restore them on your new device by using the same SD card until the apps are restored.

    Had the Droid X for a year and loved it. When my one year contract was up in opted for the Droid Razr. Overall the RAZR is fantastic. The phone runs fast and the smart actions app really extends battery life. I also have the Otterbox Defender case and love the way the phone looks in it, not to mention the added peace of mind.

    A few downsides I will mention.

    1. Because the phone's footprint is so large it makes typing a bit difficult for me since my hands are used to the Droid X. I may have found a solution with my newly downloaded SwiftKey X app. Seems to be helping but I will need to use it longer to make a proper judgment.

    2. Although the smart action app helps prolong battery life while doing light or moderate use, I am a bit disappointed in battery life for heavy usage. In battery experiments (posted in another thread) I found the Droid Razr and Droid X have very similar battery lives with active usage. DROID RAZR only had slightly better battery life for some activities like streaming video on 3g or wifi. The RAZR is almost 2 years newer than Droid X, yet battery drain is equal or only mildly superior to the previous generation phone. And that is only comparing usage with 3g. Using 4g LTE drains the battery even 20% faster.

    Did you use the Droid x for the experiment or the Droid x2 because now is dual core and one is not and that will also affect battery life since the Droid razr is dual core

    Ive mess around with the s2 skyrocket so yeah dual core eats up battery ... like the batterys have improved but it dosent show because the rest of the hardware is a bit ahead of the battires so it will prolly have a similar battery life and im fine with that i just text in college i do all the fun stuff at home :p

    I'm used the original Droid X for comparison. It was a single core processor.
