it says Standard battery, Li-Ion 2530 mAh. wasnt this supposed to be 3300mah batter like the razr maxx?? anyone?

Does anyone try the USB On-the-go functionnality ? It is to use an USB key or a keybord , ... in the phone. I wonder know if it is working better than on the razr 1 (power problem).
This is the phone i am waiting for but here in Africa it is a bit hard to get but i know it is now available in france but at a big hefty price of 619 euros that is way too from the phone company sfr

If I use gps I can destroy the battery in 16-18 hours. By far the best battery life of any handset Ive ever had. Yet to be able to use the whole battery in under a day whilst not going crazy with abuse.
AnonD-66612, 28 Sep 2012RAZR HD , have a good SAMOLED ? And Brightness ? ! have a RAZR XT 910 , form me a think that i... moreYour XT910 has got a bit low brightness. It's maximum brightness is measured to 361cd/m2 whilst the new version of same screen size and resolution in the RAZR i is 497cd/m2.
If your screen isn't bright enough, check to see if everything is optimized for maximum brightness. Turn off automatic adjustment and set is to max, then got to settings - screen - brightness and uncheck "show power saver" (or something like that in English or your language). For normal use indoors it should be bright enough, and usable depending on strenght and angle of sunlight outdoors.
This RAZR HD has a MUCH higher screen resolution giving you better pixel density and clarity/details. Don't have any exact measurement of brightness of the HD yet.

Orange France and SFR operator already makes it available in their country...SFR says they have it on stock.
is this possible?
weird is that Moto' official website make is available in France and Germany.

Anonymous, 24 Sep 2012Then tell us why the Note II is such a huge improvement over the old NOte? Because of teh new ... moreYes, the LG LCD screen is much BRIGHTER - and better calibrated - then the mentioned Samsung S3 and Note (I) AMOLEDS, which currently are not at all the best AMOLEDS available.
The fact that you noticed that the 750 cd/m2 Optimus 4X looks brighter than the 330 CD/m2 Galaxy S3, is not particularly impressive.
Twice the possible brightness really helps on that, too bad it has nothing to do with resolution, even though the LG also has better ppi as well with it's smaller screen. The two devices are also completely differently calibrated. LG is fairly properly calibrated, and Samsung is never properly calibrated. But primarely it's the weakly lit S3 which will only do well under moderat lighting contitions which fails it. Actually I think the S3 is one of the absolute weakest lit screens Samsung has ever out in a phone, and I don't relly get why - apart from saving money of course.
Note II has 478cd/m2 in additon to better sub-pixel distance and sppi. Importance of (s)ppi decreases by the size of each (sub) pixel, in eithe technology, but pentile SAMOLED has a benefit over LCD here.
The RAZR i, as an example, has almost 497 cd/m2 brightness, same as most LCDs and even brighter than note II. Not as good resolution, though it's a mid range device with smaller screen as well. It's main weakness is color orange and single withe lines, not when more than one.
Note vs note II, pixel size and distance is better in note II and not to mention that brightness has naturally improved along with the reduced pixel distance and higher subpixel count. The original note could have had far larger sub pixels, and not all that wasted space between each sub pixel, which also made it more dim than it could have been.
And again, that (original note) AMOLED screen is no more similar to the SAMOLED in the RAZR HD, than the LG Optimus G LCD is to the one in Sony's Tablet S.
A close friend of mine works in a cellphone store, and I get to demo test just about all new phones and tablets they get them.
LCD is - unfortunately - still a slow technology and dying in most of it's areas. Making them fatter to try and squeeze in backlighting LEDs hasn't helped much either. For proper blacks, contrast and panel responsivness, (S)AMOLED is a must.
Of course a large sub pixeled, low sub pixel spaced non-pentile amoled is what's desired on -especially on larger screens -, and the smaller the pixel distance - the better. Most pentile SAMOLEDs with high ppi outshines LCDs of same size and ppi by far on sub 5" devices. Not that there are so many of them. Just as most low ppi LCDs outshine similar sized samoleds with same ppi. Due to the difference in space between each (sub) pixel. Neither technology is the better one in all areas. On tablets I still prefer IPS panels.
However, just as AMOLEDS (pentile or not) can have very small sub pixels and thereby larger spaces between each pixel, so are there examples of LCD panels with small pixels and too large pixel distance giving the same visible grid effect as a pentile, only on all colors - not just single line whites and a few more.
Not all SAMOLEDs are the same and not all LCDs are the same. Both technologies can have too small (sub) pixels with too large distance between them making a bad, visible grid effects. LCDs have usually been more bright, but the new gen SAMOLEDs (apart from the one in S3) are showing the same brightness.
I like motorola phones, I've used many of them.
They are expensiver than comptetitors, difference almost 150 eur.
Even expensive with a mobile subscription...
Motorola need to lower its phones prices.
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2012Only YOUR eyes. We who have used HD AMOLED phones can see it, and so say all the Note II revie... moreNO, you have not seen this SAMOLED screen with this ppi. The note II is a completely different device, with a different screen and screen size. Same resolution on a MUCH LARGER display! Use your head! It's not at all comparable. The closest you will get is the S3 which still isnt' the same screen. Not the same pixel size.
You clearly don't understand how different sizes of pixels and subpixels work. Two screens - regardless of pen-til or non-pentile - with same size and resolution can still have different sizes on the pixels and thereby the one with the smallest pixels will have more space between each pixel making black lines visible.
Why do you think that at approx 3 meters veiwing distance the human eye is incapable of differing between 710p and 1080p on a 50" screen? Our eyes simply can't separate the details, it's all about density, pixel size and veiwing distance.
It's not about your eyes or mine, it's about human limitations.
