I'm probably as picky as you can get with build quality and creaks drive me nuts. Phones have become built to be replaceable and have a case is becoming more and more of a necessity.
Not happy about the price decrease but it was expected. I guess it is a price we pay to be early adopters.
I have a love-hate relationship with my Maxx. While on bluetooth I have constant disconnects and poor sound quality. Off bluetooth, the sound quality is fine (voice). The handset volume does appear to be slightly low but tolerable.
Other than the copy / paste issues that continue, I am pleased with the battery life, speakerphone and active notifications.
