I've been pretty much through the Razr family (V3, V3i, V3x) and I FINALLY got my V6 Maxx a few days ago and I am a very satisfied customer. Sound quality is excellent. The music playback is pretty good on the speaker but if you use the headphones it's fantastic. When you go to look at the pictures on the phone, there is no 1 or 2 second lag from picture to picture. It's fast. In the words of Ferris Bueller...."If you have the means to pick one up, I hughly reccommend it. It is so choice"
i have maxx v6 its really nice, i didnt encounter any problem,unlike nokia for now... try to get one of this!!!
@ Moto Nicolo...
Just switch your band to 900/1800 band. You are most likely on 3G thats why. Go into your SETTINGS.. then NETWORK... select NETWORK SETUP... and change BAND to 900/1800.. then change SPEED to Slow.
That should do it... the battery on this phone is really good.
My battery lasts for 72 hours. Maybe the problem is with your firmware or with your service provider.
As for the wiggle problem, i solved mine by tying two turns of dental floss on each side of the hinge. Now the wiggle is gone. Cut the ends of the floss with a sharp blade taking care not to scratch the finish.
One not so good thing about the v6 is its very poor battery performance. The full charge usually lasts for only a day (with just plain sms and short calls and no music playing involved). At first I thought that my battery is defective, but my friend told me that the battery of a moto really sucks. Is there a more extended kind of battery that we can use for our v6?
The unbranded ones are just all black.
The wiggle, I'd like to get rid of it too if possible, but I'm stuck here in Canada and the thing's just recently a few months just come out of England, so iono what to do. I'll try contacting Motorola when I feel bored or something because it doesn't bother me.
Funny thing is that it wiggles to the left xD
People wanting to know about the bluetooth, iono why there're connection problems with the HBH-DS970. I just connect it everytime I use it like this;
Turn off Bluetooth first because otherwise, you'll have a kind of static noise in your ear most of the times.
Turn on HBH-DS970, and play my music with the handset.
Then go to options and choose to play with bluetooth and it autosearches for my headset.
Then seamless connection.
Only thing that doesn't work though is the ID3 tags, but I expect that since it's not exactly and SE phone.
Again to people who strongly (not targeting opinionated people) for the W850 while looking at the Maxx, I think your choice should be the Maxx because it is completely ergonomic and the user interface much easier then the SE's menus. I haven't had a MOTO in a while, and in the recent 2 years, though for canada this phone would still be 1-2 years in the future officially, this is a good step up from their other model productiosn and I find that I don't have 'just another razr'. Everyone who has a razr around me are just eyeing the phone with envy when they see it and they ask what model it is and are taken away when they hear it's a RAZR. RAZRs aren't overrated, they're just overbought,used and manufactured. KRZR K1m would even be a good suppliment if you didn't really like wide phones or the RAZR look, minus it's 3.5G capabilities, it's nearly the same.
I recommend if you can, also tryout the MaxxV6 or KRZR K1m when you also look at the W850. Buy one at a time and return it. See what fits you, and I'm sure that you'll find that one of those MOTOs will be good.

So it seems that not all Maxx´s has wiggle problems...
I called Motorola yesterday and they said I could go into one of their service centres to get it fixed(fortunately there is one in my town).
At the center they could see the wiggle, but because it´s such a new model, they didn´t have any spare parts for it and it would take 3 weeks (I would have to leave it there which is not what I wanted to hear !!)
I´m gonna call back Motorola again monday to see if they have a quicker solution as I don´t want to be without my Maxx for 3 weeks I am very happy with this phone except for this wiggle problem..
As I have said before, this is my fifth Motorola and I have only had to contact Motorola support twice and everytime they have been very nice, so this is why I choose this solution.
its hard to look for games for this phone... where can i get some good games??? pls help.
i think that the phone lookz better than the razor 3x and the qulity of the camra is a lot better...but this phone over the 3x.
