I've been using this phone every day since 2013. It's very robust, even without a case you can drop or splash it and it won't care. I got some GPU bugs with the screen flickering blue : flashing a new ROM worked for me. Currently on Android 5 with Resurrection Remix ROM.
With time the amoled screen got a bit burned-in except on the parts of the screen that were mostly black : the bottom and top bars, so on full screen videos I noticed that these borders are a slightly different color than the rest of the screen.
Great phone, a bit slow on the heavier apps that require more RAM. The battery still allows the phone to last more than a full day.
in nowadays 2017 this phone is one of the bests because the new ones are too weak
I have never found a phone I like more than this one. I originally had an XT910 and after the sound inexplicably stopped working Motorola upgraded me, off warranty, to a XT925 at no cost. After about 3 1/2 years of use I am only now starting to experience glitches related to the GPU: The screen will occasionally flicker blue which I can usually resolve by restarting apps or the phone. Artifacts will sometimes be left on the screen by apps, against resolved by restarts. Every so often the screen in inexplicable fade to black which I believe is related to GPU overheating/crashing. After a couple seconds I can hit the power button and unlock the phone without incident. The back casing is also starting to come free because one of the casing screws or sockets has probably stripped. Please not, these are not so much complaints but a testament of how well this phone has held up after nearly 4 years of constant use. This phone is also very physically durable because of it's case construction materials. As others have said, this phone does get rather hot though. I also noticed people inquiring about replacement screens; your best bet is probably to buy a used XT925 if you can find one in the $100 range and just use that. The screens themselves are mostly listed at $55 - $85 but all I have seen are listed as out-of-stock. This was also one of the last phone manufactured by Motorola's mobile division before they were acquired by Google and started producing generic Samsung knock-offs. If you're looking for a semi-durable phone for productivity purposes, and not gaming, I highly recommend this phone if you can get a used one in the $100-150 range. Still runs a wide variety of productivity apps, including Citrix, although running desktop apps via Citrix on mobile may be difficult, it is sufficient to gain access to your enterprise network and download documents to your phone for use with mobile applications.
kk, 15 Jul 2016just wondering why I cant play pokemon go with this phone?probably could be that doesn't have the gyroscope and for Pokemon go is really necesary
Carefree you see where it say's locked ? Your bootloader is locked and you have no system on your phone. Mine does the same thing. I got mine in Juarez, MX in 2012 and went online and motorola gave me a code to unlock my bootloader. I tried a few ROMS etc and somehow in between loading different roms my damn boot loader locked again and I rebooted it in fastboot trying to restore it and that's all mine does. When it first happened I took it to Telcel where I had service and they sent it to motorola and reloaded it. This time I just said screw it. I no longer had the service and I'm not paying Motorola to unlock the boot loader. I need the software to unlock it when it won't boot like motorola is using but have been unable to find on the internet. What a shame. I liked the phone otherwise. Now it just sits on a shelf and does nothing until I can find a program to unlock it in this state.
Pheosis, 20 Jul 2016Yeah, i also have this phone and i can't play it. What is your issue?I really wanna know if u can sell ur own for me, because I need lcd for my own. I am from nigeria. This is my cell phone No
Personally I thinkd that it is an old and very useful smart phone because it run all my apps, but i got out of battery to fast, and it can get very VERY hot, such a shame because i been using motorola and i really trusted the brand, anyways good device in my opinion. Greetings from Mexico

MrMotherLoving, 26 Nov 2014Morning, I had the same problem, and my phone just died! No longer booting, no power unles... moreI have the same problem, no good even after resetting to factory default. I have the same feeling about this phone, I am upset for I like this phone very much.
AnonD-378383, 23 Mar 2015Hello all,
I have quite some issue that I've spent countless days trying to figure out. Fr... moreMy XT925's issue is the same except for one thing, instead of the phone carrier logo. I am haunted by the Motorola logo for it is the only thing on the screen for more than an hour. Although I am able to reset it to factory default, the Motorola logo will still only be the only thing on the screen ultimately.
Here is the current status of my RAZR HD:-
AP Fastboot Flash Mode (S)
10,9B (*) (sha 07671a2, 2014 10 15 04 59 29)
eMMC Info: Size 16GB
Device is locked, Status code 0 Battery Low
Transfer Mode: USB Connected
Fastboot Reason: Key pressed
I like this phone, especially the perfect arrangement of the power button and the volume up and down buttons all on the right side. I had a Samsung S4, ti was the buttons that drove me nuts the only thing I don't like about this XT925 is that it is impossible to open it without buying those expensive tools just from Motorola.
I was able to keep this phone for 5 years until I upgraded the Android OS it suggested. Now I can't boot it up even though I have already reset it to factory default. There is a message from the phone itself that I really have problem understanding: "Now send the package you want to apply to the device with "adb sideload " I need help with this message, I don't want to dispose this phone when there is still some hope.
