Today I turned off the data, turned it on when i needed it. I used the data for an hour on my lunch break, talked on the phone for 30 mins and texted every now and then. So far it has been off the charger for 9 hours and it is at 65%

I picked up this phone yesterday from AT&T, didn't know BestBuy had them for half the price! Oops...but the no contract price was $450, not bad for a great phone...I was trying to decide between this and the Sony Ion, I wanted an LTE device but nothing as huge as the GS3 or as fragile, and expandable memory was a must have. I'm still unsure about the real screen 'real-estate' b/c of the menu buttons, but overall...nice phone!

I bought this phone at best buy yesterday. So far it is a great phone. It has great signal strength, I get LTE at work while a coworkers Skyrocket doesn't get LTE in the Building. The battery seems to drain slower than the Atrix 2.

I hope a company like motorola would step up and make high end top of the line android but pls dont be racist like samsung who made their top of the line only for korea. Its not about u need 2gb ram now or not but its just a joke and ppl gotta be blind for not realizing this.

Great deal on a really great spec'd device. I just hope that morotorla eases up on its software and be willing enough to release its bootloader. With all those telco bloatwares in it, I'm sure it is not going to be 'smart enough'.

Too bad I'm already on my 2 year contract with my SGS3.

With Google priority support, it would not be supprised if Motorola overtake Samsung as No.1 Android phone beginning 2013.
