Are you on JB or ICS? Do you play games? If so, join my request.

> In reply to joonvijay @ 2013-08-20 23:24 from utx% - click to readDo you mean that it stutters when you minimize a game and go back to it? Or that the phone freezes completely?
I've not seen any stuttering when minimizing anything. Little lags do rarely occur, but are when the device is very busy and you go back too quickly, something like that. But are very little and rare.
Anyway, if you don't mind changing launchers you should try Smart Launcher, it's the lightest of all, and it's very nice, minimalistic and very functional. Try it with its Transparency theme. (When you apply this theme the Preferences button goes transparent too, but it's in the same place). Try its gestures: Swipe up hides the notification bar! It's so cool. Ha

The phone has frozen completely like 3 times with no apparent reason, too. I reset pressing Volume minus + Power for some seconds. This issue is quite weird, and has happened like 3 times in the 4 months I have had the device so far.
Not that.bad, fortunately it doesn't happen regularly. Other than that I haven't had any issue of any kind.

Sometimes Asphalt 8 closes while charging a race, rarely, too. But it's the game's fault.




(ASPHALT 8 players should read on, and collaborate!)




Btw, do you play A8? How do you like it? Do you feel Low graphics look better than "Low" suggests? I think it looks nice and enjoyable, even it looks more realistic than A7 that in the Razr i runs fine with almost all high graphics that are enabled, but yet it looks a bit toyish. A8 has nice road textures, some reflections, speed kicks when using nitro (cool when drifting) and car bumps effects even in this Low graphics for the Razr i n.n Oh, and the game runs so.very smoothly! It's a breeze for the phone! Isn't the same for you?

That's why I'm elaborating a comparison between the graphics on Need For Speed Most Wanted and A8. The graphics in NFSMW are much, much better than the A8's Aren't they? Of course NFSMW has its own beauty, BUT, if the Razr i can handle fine those high graphics why can't it handle at least Medium or even High graphics on A8? Its low resolution helps it a lot, you know?
What do you think?

I'll send this message to Gameloft and as them to unlock the Medium and High graphics for the Razr i. Would you like that? Anyone?

It's very easy to contract Gameloft, would you like to send this same request to then so they optimize the Medium and High graphics for the Razr i?

I hope you Razr i users can help me. I can share with you my comparison and you just need to send it out to Gameloft saying: I second this request!!
Gameloft does care, I've received several good attentions from them.
What do you say? You can send me your pictures with graphics comparisons too to backup our request.

Please contract me if you (everyone!) are interested: starsky182@gmail.com And if you want to compete, add me to G+ I play regularly!

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-09-22 20:09 from vbJD - click to readA friend of mine tried to use Directory Bind in his Razr i stock JB and couldn't. There's a bug in BD that makes it impossible to use in his device. But, in my Razr i running ICS (stock) DB works flawlessly and it's such a marvelous and the brightest app ever created n.n

If you (anyone) are a gamer I'd advice you to stay on ICS. JB doesn't have any appealing for me (worse now that DB doesn't work on it). I'm very satisfied using my Razr i on ICS (with little tweakings).

I'm planning to buy the Xperia Z Ultra to couple it with the Razr i n.n The big and the compact. A sweet complement, isn't it?

I have no apps minus from Youtube on this phone, however it keeps telling me to remove data and I have a memory card stored. It seems it is not using the memory card.

Excellent phone. After a long research decided to go for it rather than s4 mini. Absolutely love the screen, the speed, the quality pictures and those little tiny tricks it has once you customise it and get used to it. Battery life - if I'm off work and not really need it - 3 days, baby, yeah! Have always been p....d of going everywhere with a charger in the pocket.
Wouldn't change it for anything.

Hello Moto! Wow! I am impressed.

I'd own a S3 before this.... and I have to recognize that I do prefer the xt890 instead of S3.

It's subjetive... of course.

XT890, it's fast! so fast! camera appears inmediatly!
No lag at all...

The bad. No FM radio in Jally Bean... no matter still can use tune in...

Material of contruccion... WOW... it's Motorola... no plastic...cheap pf samsung..

Moto has coming back... very happy with my choose...
