I believe another way to update this device to Android 4.1.2 and make it more bearable is to flash the sbf for the Motorola Electrify 2 (XT881), since both devices are one and the same. http://sbf.droid-developers.or...hp?device=16

Almost an awesome phone...but half way through production, Motorola said "fuck it, we are over budget" and they gave up... software issues galore. Downloading mobile 360 security app its the pinky way I've found to make this phone bearable.

To me it is rubbish for the original price, something that could easily have been excellent.

People always complain about my call quality, particularly if some noise like aircon is around, or if I use it on one side of my face versus the other. What of all this superior moto call quality?

The 4GB internal memory gets mostly chewed up by the system and included apps. I have very little on the phone and everything I can in a SD card, like photos dcmi directory, and regularly get down to around 200MB left which causes the phone to grind down. The lack of install to external SD card, or move part of an app to the card, is like a crime. My phone has been hacked even though this no external SD was supposed to help stop this. My important app data is trapped in the phone to me to backup but not to hackers it seems.

Update killed all my data, no update for ages. Gets slow, needs some newer features.

Phone locks some user data into it, and no Motorola program to get it out and back it up. So, the user/phone information apps are not up to scratch, and make various little things awkward.

Leaked battery and battery going. Usb port on top is a good target for rain.

Most of this can be solved with a simple update.

As is, this expensive phone was not woath the over $400 original price, but barely the over $200 price I paid for it new in store. You should examine phones you buy for the issues above, and avoid those with them.

Gopro suggests that Motorola os4 is ok for using the gopro app. The other suggestion is droid. Does this mean my xt885 can support gopro app as a remote monitor? So far no good. Any input would be appreciated thanks

Great size, nice finish. Saddly this phone has really disappointed me. It came with Android 4.0 but it's as slow as old 2.3 devices. The phone died on me after about 10-11 months of usage. Also don't expect to be able to do modding on it too, it has a locked down bootloader.

This phone is a good mid-range phone, especially for the price.
Do not expect it to be mind blowing or anything, it just does what it has to and does that very well.
Battery Life is decent if used lightly or just texting, but will drain quickly if used for other things.
Overall, a great phone for the price.

Battery power will last all day if used for texting with the odd phone call. Buy when surfing internet, expect to charge afterward. And when gaming, don't even bother trying if your battery is >50%. Use smart actions to disable gps and background actions when phone is not in use. This will help battery life substantially

Its funny that nobody likes this phone... It isn't the greatest phone out there, I've experienced a few glitches with it, and reception isn't great. But overall, i love the styling, the home screen setup is perfect, and smart actions are amazing! Its a metal phone, kevlar backing (which is grippy, tough, and looks classy) and it has gorilla glass. This is a good phone design, good processor, good motorola layout...but a bit glitchy (freezes once per week, some icons relocate automatically, and sometimes text will duplicate itself...) But even with a few quality control issues (what phone doesn't) I'd rate it a 7/10. Its better than my wires galaxy note, and less than half the price!!
