Excerpt: Got this phone as a replacement for my last Motorola clunker, and it is only a slight improvement. First, as with all things Verizon, it is LOADED with bloatware. When I cut it on in the AM, sometimes it takes as long as 5 min to get my emails up because it is busy downloading updates for apps I neither asked for nor need. The processor is painfully slow.
Excerpt: Great phone, well built, light weight, fast on LTE & WiFi. It's Android, so anything you wish it did you can download from the market. With the JellyBean update, bloatware isn't an issue. Phone can get a little hot while inside the windshield mount, but that's to be expected.
Excerpt: When I switched from Sprint Motorola Photon Q to Verizon, I expected to get the Motorola Droid 4 (comparable device). My friend pointed out the RAZR MAXX and I went to PhoneArena.com to research. Ever since I've had this phone in my hands, I've loved it. After the Jelly Bean update, the phone was even better. I have dropped this device in a shallow pool of water (sink while shaving) and had no issues. It's more durable and rugged than expected.
Pros: Great battery, Durable, HDMI output, Charging port at the top of the phone., Loud speakers
Cons: Under certain conditions, can see black artifacts on the screen (low light playing a dark video), Camera is a little slow sometimes
Excerpt: I got this phone in Mexico a month ago and I'm very satisfied. It's not as expensive as I thought and it combines the best of every smartphone: long battery life, big screen, great camera, microSD capable,etc. Totally worth it.
Pros: Awesome battery life, microSD slot, Splash resistant and very durable, HDMI output, Very good reception
Cons: Haven't received Jelly bean update, Not the best screen resolution, The keyboard is not as responsive as I wish. It freezes sometimes
Excerpt: I didn't have this phone long, maybe 4 months, before it started over heating and dying constantly... I thought it was supposed to have that extended life battery... when you spend this much on a phone you expect it to work longer. Plus I hate how when Verizon sends you a lemon, they replace it with a "refurbished" lemon. NOT IMPRESSED!
Excerpt: I switched to the RAZR MAXX from my DROID 4 because the battery life was too short and the screen was too small. I'm a heavy user and I get about twice the battery life on the MAXX. So if you're the kind of person that hates running out of battery this is this phone for you.
GREAT battery life and very good specs, features and root friendly too!

Excerpt: A phone with good specs and a battery that can go all day on a single charge. Lots of features to use software and hardware wise. Root friendly and lots of ROMs to choose from. Features that made this the choice for me was it was the only phone with a battery that can last all day, Gorilla Glass, waterproof coating on the inside,dual core, HDMI output, slender profile with great looks too! All in one phone!
Pros: *Battery life* 21.5 Hours Talk Time!!!!, *Waterproof coating on inside of phone *Standard, Gorilla Glass, HDMI out, Materials and durabilty, 4G LTE, Motorola Smart Actions App, Look, size, and finish, Micro SD slot, 4G Tethering
Excerpt: The only thing going for this phone is the battery. I can't believe with all the hype of Android being "open" how locked down this phone is. Locked down by Motorola and Verizon. Loaded with crapware and the horrible Motoblur interface slows the phone down and requires the huge battery. No wonder it crashes so often. The phone is uncomfortable to hold with an awkward and too-large shape and size. The pentile display is very pixelated and cheap looking.
Pros: Long battery life, Good reception
Cons: Locked down closed OS, Horrible display, Poor camera, Non-removable battery, uncomfortable to hold, Crapware, Unstable - crashes a lot, Motoblur
