EXCELLENT phone! Only four things could make it 100% absolutely "perfect".
1. If Moto would actually release drivers for Jelly Bean (or even better actually release an official Jelly Bean ROM for it) so the last few minor bugs in the custom ROMs could be squashed
2. If it had the 1700MHz band T-Mobile uses (although, with the re-farming, I grabbed HSDPA signal today and hit 6Mbs on speedtest)
3. If the WiMax radio in it was LTE instead.
4. Last, and probably least, if I could get the T-Mobile "WiFi Calling" app pushed to it
Other than those 4 things, this phone has been one of, if not the, best phone(s) I've ever had or used (and I even have craptastic iPhones thanks to my job forcing them on me).
