Summary: <Context>I am a new smartphone user. I am 50 yrs old. :)</Context> Wanted a phone with something at least close to the battery-life I have been enjoying with my basic, and this seems as close as the industry can get at this point. Originally was looking at Droid, but started with an iPhone 4S from Verizon, and returned it within 14-day trial period. I have had an iTouch for the last 5 yrs. so wanted something new I could engage with.
Pros: BATTERY LIFE!, 4G, Large display, FUN TO USE!
Cons: Volume-rocker buttons have cheap feel; difficult to use, Display washes-out in sun
Excerpt: I have bought many smartphones and my previous phone was the galaxy nexus lte, which i really liked and used it for about three months. It was a great phone, beautiful screen and very fast,the design was great. The battery life wasn't good at all, love the ICS. I was considering the Motorola razr when i purchased the nexus, and decided to get the nexus instead.
Hands down the best smartphone out there, not just the best Android one!

Excerpt: I'm an extremely heavy business user that has become accustomed to charging my phone every chance I get so it will get through the day. With the Razr Maxx it hits the charger only once a day when I go to sleep at night; that's it and usually it's still around 30%+ at that time. I've owned upwards of 20+ smartphones in the last 8+ years since smartphones moved into the realm of "useable".
Excerpt: I've had this device for 2 months now and absolutely love it. My recent devices include the Samsung Galaxy Nexus , Rezound , Bionic, Droid X2 and Droid X (on VZW), EVO, EVO 3D and Phonton (Sprint). I carry an iphone 4s for work Razr a few and loved the screen, HOWEVER it software does allow you to grow with the device Here's my breakdown: PROS; -Screen in crisp and a pleasure to look at. Colors are true and text is amazingly clear.
Excerpt: I bought this verizon phone for my wife. So, I don't use it day and day out. So, here goes. The android interface that moto designed is way cool. Very intuitive. Very light weight. Big screen. Phone audio in and out is very good. She calls me on speaker phone mode with it on her lap while she drives. Sounds very good to her and I. Noise canceling appears to be very effective. I can tell she is in the car but not like other phones in the past. Much less on speaker!!
Excerpt: 2 died in a months time. Verizon sent me this phone after good reviews to them. However, the dumb thing died after four days to me, and the second one died after three days in my humble arms. I will never be satisified after that without an apology from Motorola. and a thank you from Verizon for my patience and perseverance.
Pros: all good while working
Cons: only worked for four days at a time (both phones)
Excerpt: I recently got this phone and it is an amazing phone with very fast response time. I was worried about the battery life but it is much better than the HTC phones I previously owned. Pros 1. Good battery life 2. Very fast and responsive 3. Looks great Cons 1. Price 2. Sometimes the sound quality of calls is not good Also I am not able to find a good case for this phone. I tried this case but it is not what I want. Can anyone recommend a good case?
Excerpt: I cannot believe I thought of getting any other phone. The RAZR MAXX has improved on all that I loved about the original RAZR and Droid, and brought in so many more innovations. Other phones may rival it's build quality, design, speed, and performance, but I believe Motorola has set a new standard awfully high as far as battery capacity goes without hindering physical design much.
Pros: Light, Thin, Tons of memory, Super fast, Tons storage space, The freakin' battery!
Cons: Yellow screen tint, Constant force closing keyboard, Very wide and tall for small hands, Can get a little warm with extreme use
