Pos = Unbelievable battery, great screen, very fast (even not being quad-core);
Cons = Terrible camera (can't believe Motorola failed on this), few roms available;
About battery, i used a Galaxy Nexus before, and this phone has exactly the double of battery comparing with GNexus. 1 hour normal use on XT925 = 5%. 1 hour normal usage on GNexus = 10%.
soon as i seen 1gb of ram it probably do the same thing my RAZR maxx does, it close background programs down that i am using, as to why i norm limit my browsing to Opera mini as it tends to not eat a lot of ram up (keeps background programs running), but do not underestimate the RAZR maxx or HD maxx (apart form there been no RAZR maxx HD in the UK....) the battery life on the maxx versions is how an smartphone should be i get 2 days of use and thats me Not turning any thing off (3g wifi BT 5-8hours of screen on time, any other smartphone your lucky if you get 3 hours screen on time)
i been looking at the samsung S3 LTE UK (i9305) or the Note 2 LTE UK (n7105) due to that it seems to run very smooth has 2gb of ram (as the UK does not really have much of an LTE network yet, but i am finding that only the LTE phones have DC-HSPA+ 42mb so i can use that for now until LTE comes and both support all the networks in the UK for both 3g and 4g as not all 4G phones work on all networks)
but the battery is still lacking on the S3 LTE version needs to be 3000 at least (but you can use an spare battery thought as its removable unlike other phones that have poor sized battery and is not removable) i guess i miss using this Moto Razr maxx phone i have (apart from having to reboot the phone when data fails to work some times and the small screen)
upgrade weirdness, 04 Mar 2013I upgraded to Jelly Bean and i can no longer see the drive on my computer when connected with ... moreAfter the upgrade, I found to have the same problem but its pretty normal. All you need to do is click on your phone name to access whatever you need to do
this phone is ccrap, even on paper, especially the price. google might want to revise their strategy. start licesencing android os, perhaps. i hear they getting jealous of samsung..
I upgraded to Jelly Bean and i can no longer see the drive on my computer when connected with USB. Mass storage function is gone in menu. I can NOT drag and drop back and forth from computer to phone anymore. Is this normal? I have win xp.

Its a great smartphone, I came from a Galaxy s3 and an iPhone 4S and I am extremely pleased with the work that Motorola did this smatphone. Fast, great screen quality and battery good durability, not to mention the quality of the material it is made. I recommend.

queqqo, 01 Feb 2013Hi, do you think guys is possible to put the razr maxx HD battery into this phone (3300mah), a... moreYou can but they would have to remove some screws and solder some parts around to accommodate the bigger battery. But it will cost you an arm and a leg since it would run 120 on ebay plus labor when you bring it to a phone store so your looking at least 200 after taxes.
Ok Ive had this phone for a month through Telcel in Mexico
Design: Ive always considered myself to have small hands. I first thought that the phone would be too big for me...nut i can do one handed use (my thub reaches the other side of the screen) and it fits in all my pockets. Construction is great GG, kevlar looks still like brand new no scratches and i have a pvc bumper wich will etenalize my phone. The thing I didnt like were the on-screen controls there is more than enough space at the bottom to put physical capacitative buttons. I wonder why moto left it out its a waste of space..... My phone came bundled with a 16GB card and im thnkful for it as i will explain later
Screen: Jaggedness my ass gsmarena is overly critical in camera quality and screen. I cant see individual pixels even if i put my nose to the screen. I read pdfs on my phone (ezpdf is the best) and there is no pixelization on it. Colors are good. Screen is bright but slightly reflective, if I´m in direct sunlight I have to see the screen at an angle.
UI/OS: ICS is good i have a couple of widgets and launches. smart actions is great for putting settings like battery saving and night mode. i put as default gallery Quickpic app cuz the stock os wont play gifs and some images wouldnt fit to screen. Video player i placed as defauklt mxVideo cuz it woulnt play heavy files or xVid.
APP2SD DOESNT WORK! I investigated and I foudn out why and it explains many things like my previous sentence. It seems that ICS on, Google stopped trying to pay M$ licencing for their formats FAT32 and XVid. So the internal memory has a foldel called /sdcard in which all main data like apps misuc downloads are. the internal mem cant be recognized by the computer as a usb mass storage cuz its not fat32 format (try to format it and you brick the phone; thats M$ licencing!) Sammy pays M$ and so their galaxys can be used a s mass storage and pass the apps to the SD. Fortunately, we have an microSD card, so i put my personal files in that and left the internal mem to sotre apps i cant move App2SD says the sd is emulated and cant move them....
just to note i have this much avail storage: 3.76 GB internal memory 1.84Gb left on my SD card.
SMALL LAG when typing kind of like waht happens in word so theres no biggie there.
All apps work. I have a galaxy ace too and i hated seeing not compatible for your phone so thats why I got a flagship....every app ive downloaded works. gaming: vice city, nfs most wanted, nova3 mass effect they all run sure the phone gets toasty after 20 min and the battery runs dry in 6 hours but ive noticed no lag in those apps at all. i have all my needs in facebook viber pdf readers emulators and i enjoy using it all day long.
Music: loudspeaker is LOUD. stereo quality sound to it. Heaphones still much the same and good sound.
CAMERA: man, people are overly critical on this. noise color saturation bs. TL;DR camera is great, imaeges do come sharp and are very decent. if its one thing that phones have improved, its camera quality sometimes i think its the person taking the pic moving while the phone is taking a shot.....all my pics have been fine even taking macro shots of project progress on paper and sahring them on dropbox (zooming in no loss of quality at all no pixelization) i´ve always used auto setting and this is coming from someone who had a Nokia N8.....
Baterry life: if i use it moderately (download documents from work, texts 40min calls 3 hours on wifi/LTE, music and most of the day idle) from 830am o 10 pm yesterday i had 47% left. even for toady that i went to 9gag and saw memes im down to 90% battery is great!
overall score 9.5/10
