Question 14 Days Since Launch . . . Whose Keeping and Whose Returning Your Maxx?

As we approach day 14, let us know if you're keeping your Maxx or it's going back for another model.

Personally, I'm keeping my Maxx. It's everything that I'd hoped it would be. I mean it's EVERYTHING that I hoped every smartphone that I've ever had would be.

Well, it's not *everything* I'd hoped a smartphone would be, but it's a darned nice phone.

I'll be keeping mine.

Oh I will be keeping mine, no doubt. I remember posting back when I got my GNex that I couldn't imagine a better phone. Well, I own a better phone now.

This phone may not be absolutely perfect for EVERYONE (talking about the camera here) but for ME and MY needs this things is EXCELLENT. can't imagine owning any other phone currently available and being happier (remember i had a GS4 for a month too so this really is one hell of a phone)

i think the GREAT thing about this phone is it isn't OVER hyped. everything that is advertised is usable and works great, no gimmicky hand gestures or floating fingers or crap that never work... just features like google now that work great. i have been using google now a lot for hands free voice calls while my hands are tied up ( i also like that you can change the setting to automatically go to speaker phone if you dial a number via voice commands... very 'handy' feature)

Sticking with.

This phone isn't perfect, but the long battery life, big screen, mostly stock Android (more to the point: unskinned Android), 32 gigs, and smooth performance make this the "Galaxy Nexus II" for me.

Dislikes for me are camera (not horrible, just "meh..."), capacitive buttons, rear-facing speaker (it's loud, but also sound over-driven to where I'm half-expecting it to blow), and they way it holds on to insanely weak WiFi signals when there's a perfectly good 4G signal.

As it's primary role is to be my business cell workhorse, I don't see any phone currently on the market that could meet my needs better. It performed exceptionally on Bluetooth calls and with navigation on the road last week, so I'm keeping it.

Since August 20th I have tried all of the functions on this phone that I use and many I probably will not use other than playing. (Zap, which works great BTW). It has performed as close to perfect as I would possibly ask. Wireless charging and navigation work very well and the battery life is fantastic. The phone is fast and smooth. I tried LG once and was very disappointed. Samsung feels cheap and Touch Wiz is a PITA. This phone is close to pure Android and a pleasure to use. The Maxx is a keeper for sure.

Glad to hear of all the positive feedback about this phone... especially since I ordered mine today. Got the red-striped bumper case too. Verizon said it ships the 5th, so if I'm lucky I'll get it Saturday. If not, Monday is fine. I've waited this long, another few days ain't gonna kill me.

It will be so nice to have an up-to-date phone close to launch date. I got the Droid Eris long after launch, as well as my current Razr Maxx. The last time I got a phone close to launch was the Galaxy Nexus and... well... let's just say it didn't work out well for me.

I'll keep mine. No options for different file capture size on the camera, and no hard port for HDMI out are about the only issues I have with it. But, they can be overcome with other means. It's just a matter of getting used to them. From what I am using in memory so far, it looks like I will still be able to do some light ROMing later on. I am stunned by 6.5+GB of use for the operating system. More potentially recoverable memory right there.

Keeping mine as well (though I only bought mine on Friday). Was interested in the G2 or whatever, but after a few days with this phone, I just have no interest in anything else (battery is a HUGE deal for me coming from a GNEX.

Keeping. Just got my $50 credit due to price drop, and even though the Griffin car dock doesn't work properly with the bumper, my other car dock does. This phone is fantastic.

Keeping mine as well. There are little annoyances, like the pre-programmed contacts, typical bloat, etc, but I have yet to find anything better. And I love being able to have a medium to heavy usage day and still have 30-40% battery left when I get home!
I did take the VZW bumper back though. It just made the phone too bulky for my liking.

And as always, better battery life. That's it though. I don't want anything bigger than the GNex.

True.

And I didn't wish for the always-on feature at the time I posted that because I figured that way years away, until a really powerful battery pack would be invented. That one took me off guard.

I tried both the Maxx and the HTC One, and settled on the Maxx. On paper, the HTC is the finer piece, but in reality I could tell little difference, so battery life settled it for me. I compared screen brightness in full sunlight, and could tell no difference. Also, I could tell no difference with processor speed, both are quicker than my laptop. So, I just turn up the screen, turn on WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth, and "let 'er burn." What good is a phone that you can't enjoy to the "Maxx?"

I'm on day two. Came from a S4 and an iPhone 5 before that. What can I say, I like the newest tech.

Anyway, I am somewhat pleased with the Maxx. Handset volume is low on most calls and today I experienced a very annoying bluetooth issue. After streaming Pandora to my car's entertainment system, the phone connection dropped and then reengaged and continued to drop every few seconds. Almost like a pulse. I wonder if it was an issue with the moto assist / touchless control. I will experiment more tomorrow.

Another issue I noticed is popping during voice calls. The other party seems to pop with a very electronic sounding voice. Not natural. And voicemails are very difficult to understand due to bad quality. I did not experience any of this on my S4. The S4's voice calls were just ok with a few dropped calls more than usual.

Was hoping this was the one for a while. Anyone think they will update the firmware to fix any of these issues?

Can't say I've experienced those as issues. My Bluetooth dropped off once while I wasn't on a call, but my speakerphone unpaired/repaired. My audio quality has been strong and consistent. I'd investigate an exchange if your troubles continue.

If the issues continue I will most definitely exchange the device

5 days with phone, paid off contact 650 to keep my unlimited plan, not sure I will keep as while a nice phone, not that big an improvement over my RAZR maxx when it was working right, unfortunately my RAZR was having some issues that were getting irritating. The battery is really not that much different than my RAZR, camera is actually not as good, the big difference is speed/smoothness which is nice and what my RAZR was like before jelly bean upgrade. So wonder same issue happens going to key lime in 6 months? OK Google now while kind of neat, is something I can easily live without as I use my new nexus 7 tablet except for calls or running errands. The screen is better than RAZR but nexus 7 tablet is much better for video, surfing, reading. Unfortunately if I take it back, then have to make a claim on insurance for replacement RAZR for 100 and 35 restocking fee and hope the replacement works like my old one did.... Unlimited plan I need as I tether so much for my laptop, around 8 to 12 gigs month, both old and new maxx work nicely with foxfi

My Maxx HD definitely lost its fluidness with Jelly Bean. That occasional slowdown or stutter was annoying. The new Maxx hasn't so much as stuttered once. I'm very pleased.

EDIT: Even my Note II had the stutters. The Maxx beats them both hands-down in the general smoothness category. It's iPhone-like in that regard.

Ending up keeping Maxx as the smoothness/quickness is just too nice to overlook, not sure a refurbished Razr would have worked with jelly bean as that started my whole annoyance with the razr, got so bad it would just freeze when tying to do goog now search...I definitely think the extra ram helps...

This helps me. I have a sluggish RAZR MAXX and thinking of finally going for the new MAXX.

I was debating between the MAXX and S4 but battery and no dropped calls along with call quality are my top concerns

I am very satisfied with this phone. It is fast, does everything I want it to do and will take at least a year to learn all its capabilities. I have had it since release date. I will not list the pros like fantastic battery life, etc. but some of the cons I have noticed or heard about on several forums.
1. Separation of the case on some phones. Mine is tight and solid but if you are getting a new phone it would be wise to closely check the seam between front and back. If there is a noticeable gap request a replacement. It may, IMHO, be a case of the glue not curing yet so be careful when putting on cases or bumpers for a while Don't try to pry it apart to see what is inside. The battery is not accessible or replaceable. Also there is no micro SD card slot. There is a sim card slot you can get to by pulling out the volume buttons. RTFM. I took the time to print out the entire 70 page manual. I'm a little OC about reading it.
2. The camera is not SLR quality but will get better with future software updates. It is fine for my purposes and I no longer take my SLR on vacations with me. A phone camera is not meant for professional photography use.
3. Some of the docks meant for this phone quite bluntly suck. I Got the TYLT VU wireless charger desk dock and it is excellent. A little pricey but This is a Qi charger and should work well with future phones. I am using a generic car dock and the navigation works very well without the specialized dock.
4. No micro SD card slot. It has 32Gb internal which is plenty for me. I also have a Leef Bridge 32Gb flash drive, OTG cable and Thumb drives and a Meenova on order. If I want more music, books, movies etc. to take on vacation these work great.

IMHO this is the best of the new phones out there and I am sure I will still be enjoying it two years from now. YMMV

Did you do a Factory Data Reset after updating to Jelly Bean?

Did you try running in Safe Mode (disabling all the apps you added without uninstalling them)?

No but not really motivated to.. Lol,

I really want a new phone, so I deal with the sluggish issues of Google now and chrome, even dolphin acts slow.

I just want something new, I also found a crack I the bezel around the screen too, maybe I damaged something

Good luck.

I went from the Droid Bionic to the Droid Maxx and there was NO debate. The difference is phenomenal. I don't power off that often when I power on the Droid Maxx I am always astonished by how fast it happens.

I hope you're right, but we won't know if that is true until the updates actually arrive. It may be that the camera hardware is too crappy to overcome with software.

Did FDR twice, both types, did safe mode which helped it run slightly better till loading my apps back, finally gave up... No lag on new maxx, very quick/smooth plus screen is outstanding compared to RAZR, camera not that big a deal to me, I need timely stock updates, metal prices, tweets thru texts, calendar alarms, Internet access and email... Really think extra ram helps and faster processor.
