I was using FM radio on 4.0.4 ICS but when I updated to Jelly Bean 4.1.2 (I think) it stopped working. Have (with lots of hassle) gone back to ICS and it is working again

Bought this phone two months ago. My first Android experience. Loved it. All the features, apps and construction.

Last week while taking a picture, the phone slipped from my hands and landed on the tile floor. Picked it up and the screen would not work. I shut it off and turned it on but the problem still persisted.

Here is my thing. The thing is made from aircraft grade aluminum and kevlar. You would think it could handle a 3 foot drop no problem. My wife and I have had plastic Blackberry's for years and have both dropped them accidentaly numerous times without experience any problems except the occasional reboot.

Something to think about for anyone considering buying this phone.

If unlocked then it should take any micro sim card.

Circles widget causes a lag on the menu button.removing it causes the stutter to go away completely. very hard choice to make

It worked for a few days and then started going crazy freezing and taking forever to adjust the view when i flipped my phone etc. Just today i tried the unlock button as usual and nothing happened I can see my notification bar but nothing else !!! also the camera button brings up the camera as normal as well. Help if you have any idea what i could do ? do you think that drop would have bee enough to do this ?? thanks

I work in a phone shop and this phone is indestructable, i have probably thrown it at the ground over 200 times, and it has no damage, this isnt carpet either, stone floors. Its truly amazing.

Features wise, still very good, deffinantly keeps up with Samsung S2, Ace, Nokia Lumia 820.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-02-14 19:25 from nGxA - click to readits only a matter of tastes. The fact, however, is that this is a blazing fast phone with a great screen. The size of the phone (IMO) is in a sweet spot between small phones and phones with big screens. Motorola looks to have learned a lesson and rolled out the JB update as scheduled,but not without its drawbacks. The battery life seems worse after update even with google search disabled all together. The two downsides in the phone is average picture quality and sound quality through headphones.
I did like the phone much better before JB. If you still didnt do the update check around forums to see if the tradeoff is good for you.
