ManishM, 10 Aug 2012where did you find it? Hi
Settings->Developer options->Force GPU rendering, you just check this option, you can read a little bet on the web about this because looks like it also has some compatibility problems with some apps, but by the moment I didn't find anyone.

Im not sure if this exist in GB.

those who worry about the screen/glass please take note that it is not unbreakable, nor it's super fragile.I am talking about accidental drop or carrying pattern, not abuse.
some may put it into pockets with other things or in their pants so the phone are subject to pressure and friction. being a 4 inches + and only 1mm thick glass, this carrying pattern can be considered as light abuse to it already.
If you drop it on the floor then it's nobody's fault but yourself if it breaks. Some may say that my xxxx brand with a gorilla glass wont break when i drop it and others with the same glass of other brands break easily. This is all related to the sizes and the designs of each phones, when you drop it it depends on the first contact point of the phone with the floor surface which we may not notice in split seconds. It also depends on the body of the phone which hold the glass as plastic or aluminum body has different value of shock absorbent.
So the only way is just be careful and use a protector case

Battery life is very good but does it will getting hot when playing internet,music about an hour?If keep staying like that may be hot like oven.
AC, 06 Aug 2012It looks like the razr maxx screen has serious screen issues. The LCD screen seems very fragil... moreSerious screen issues??? Completely nonsense.
I dropped the phone with the screen facing the street & not a single crack.
I strongly recommend buying this phone.
This is my first Motorola device ever. I was a loyal HTC user & was going to get the One X but decided to get the MAXX for the strong battery performance.
This is a brilliant device which can do what other high end devices do, with no worries about switching off after losing power.
I'd like also to add that the build quality of the MAxx is very strong, I once dropped it on its screen & it slipped several meters over the street, & nothing happened.
Still waiting for the ICS update.
Just buy it.
