I can't get an updgrade until October (I got an early upgrade when I cracked my OG Droid screen back in April of 11). By then, there will be something that I'm sure will float my boat. If I could upgrade now however, I'd get a Rezound over anything else. I still may get one when I'm due as I'm loving my wife's Inc2 and how smooth and snappy it is. Plus, by then, the Rezound will be much cheaper perhaps even free.

If Verizon would release an equivalent to the Samsung Note, I'd seriously consider that as well.

Not sure. We'll see what comes out of MWC.

Also, saw a report of a "Developer" RAZR with an unlockable bootloader that may even be coming to the US. A developer RAZR Maxx would be tempting. Of course, Moto was stupid for not doing this at launch. They lost a lot of devs to the GN already.

If they had released the "Developer" model at launch, it would not be locked up and they would not have lost so many devs. Coming out with it now is stupid.

well it would be great competition for the galaxy nexus

as most of us prefer motorola quality to any other, however after being scorned by motorola and false mentions of unlocked the bootloader in the new phones, they have pretty much lost the efforts of the dev community.

so until it is truly unlocked and/or relockable, you wont see a strong dev community for it

QFT. Motorola has the best build quality IMO by a wide margin. Their radios are top notch too. But after the OG Droid, they haven't released a developer friendly phone since. Plus, Blur just sucks no matter the iteration.

I'm definitely planning on jumping off the Moto train unless the Google/Moto "partnership" turns up some interesting surprises. But I won't hold my breath.

My DX is acting up lately, and it's driving me insane. Everything slows to a crawl and I don't know why. I'm going to start uninstalling apps that I don't ever use to see if it helps, but at this point, March 19 can't get here fast enough. VZW will give me an extra $50 off when I upgrade, but I figure by then, I can get the Maxx or Nexus for even less from a 3rd party like Amazon or Costco. Then again, two months is an eternity in phone years and there may be a whole slew of new stuff ready or about to be released by then.

The developer RAZR is coming to the US...however its going to be retail priced...bought through Motorola, and with ZERO warranty...just not gonna work as a popular device...

Very few people will own it to say the least...

Bought my "X" on launch day and it still serving me well. Best phone I've ever had actually.

I thought we might get some info on the upcoming phones at CES, but nope...

Now I'm hanging my hat on Mobile World Congress towards the end of this month. I'm hoping for some good info on the upcoming superphones and maybe some insight on the 2nd generation LTE radios that are rumored to be much less power hungry than the current LTE radios.

If they do announce some nice phones they most likely won't be launched until 2/3/4th qtr of this year. But like I said my "X" is treating me really well and I'll have no problem waiting. My only concern is that how can I ever get a phone that I like better than my Droid X?

Time will tell. I'm patiently/impatiently waiting for the release of my next phone.

I appreciate the tip. I was just wondering if derek533 had anything specific in mind when he asked if I was rooted.

Reason I asked, is have you tried switching to another aka different rom than the one you're currently on? I've noticed that on my OG Droid, after awhile with a certain rom, it would slow to a crawl. Unfortunately, just like Windows, a fresh install does wonders as far as speeding it up.

I can't tell you the difference it made when I rooted and switched to Liberty from the stock update. Of course, I wasn't rooted before, but on the stock update, my phone was the biggest POS with random reboots all the time, sluggish performance and sub-par battery life. Since installing Liberty V3, all is good and I would say my phone is as snappy as anything else.

Just saying that you might try that and see if that helps.

I'm rooted, but on the stock rom. Never tried any other one, but have heard Liberty is nice. Thx

Give Liberty a try. I promise, it is well worth your time to get it on there and your phone will be as fast as anything currently available once you switch. It's THAT good compared to the stock rom builds.

The Razr Maxx is interesting to me, but won't do moto since they haven't fix what is wrong with the x yet, those button lights staying on and Keyboard lag is sucky. Not going to reward them with my $ if they haven't gotten around to fixing one I have already paid for. Basically they broke it. It was fine when purchased, it was they update.

there are a lot of things that Moto has done (especially since the launch of the X) that I do not like...but its so hard to rule them out for my next phone because they have hands down the best hardware in the business...the software is not for everyone (but that would be a non-issue if they released a phone with an open bootloader)...but the hardware is just plain money...purely on hardware id take a RAZR MAXX over a GNex all day every day..

I'm waiting. The Razr Maxx looks interesting. Too bad the battery isn't user replaceable.

A Galaxy Note on Verizon might tempt me, but I am not sure I can go with a Samsung product mainly due to radio concerns.

We'll see what summer has in store for us.

My DX is still running well, after after a year and a half...but I am looking forward to something with 4G and a real keyboard (perhaps sometime later this year?).

At this point a Droid 4 Maxx would be awesome if it is ever offered. Even better would be something similar to that with a 4.5+" 1280 x 800 screen, but it will probably be a while before we see a beast like this.

Till then, I'll most likely keep plugging along with my DX - its the best phone by far I've owned to date.

My x has been absolutely terrible. It drove me to root it and put a new rom on it. I wont list all the problems but multiple software problems then the hardware started to go. Have an upgrade in march but going to wait for the iphone 5.

its somewhat of a non-issue with the MAXX considering the battery has over twice the capacity of the stock DX Battery and almost double that of the DX extended (1850 mah vs 3300mah) thats an impressive battery to say the least...

thats my concern with leaving Moto...

1. Ive always had Moto phones back to my StarTac days...never had issues with Moto mobile devices

2. They just make the best hardware out there...

3. the rumored Moto/Intel/ICS device has me intrigued to say the least...

These 2 things!

My coworker is getting his Maxx Wednesday, so I'm looking forward to playing with it a bit. The rumored Intel Moto phone may be too far out for me to wait. I'm very impatient, but also like having the latest and greatest, even if it's short lived.

I have been eligible for an upgrade since early December. Right now nothing has caught my eye and my X is running great on the current ROM I am using.

I'm posting this so I can put a link in a thread I'm trying to create (which is the only reason I joined the forum...to ask the question in that thread); however, in order to prevent spam, it told me links were prohibited in a first post and I should introduce myself. This thread had 40 replies, so I thought I'd post here.

Ironic that basically I'm spamming so that the forum can prevent spam, yes? K, now back to my thread. Let's see if I can post it.

LOL, Madmick007, yeah, that's just a feature to prevent real spammers (which you are clearly not).

I saw your thread and closed it for you...good luck and thanks for joining the forums with us--hope you'll stick around.

Cheers!

Looks nice, but how is LG for quality and updates? Never really knew anyone with an LG phone.
Looks like Sony just announced 4.0 for the single core older phone. If so, seems that ICS would work on a DX also. I don't expect ICS as I bought the phone and it works fine (now). Moto didn't promise me an update.

If your rooted there is multiple true ICS ROMs out there right now. There is two ROMs based on CM9 (4.0.1 and 4.0.3) there is also an AOKP build that is very alpha and a MIUI v4 build that is very alpha right now. But ICS does run on the X, and ironically it runs very, very good, much better than GB.

The CM9 ROMs are very, very stable, especially the latest CM9 Beta coming off 4.0.3. Biggest problems at this time is ICS uses different camera binaries and libraries, so camera doesn't work at this time. Progress is being made, and at this time you can fool around in camera it just won't take pictures yet, but there is a fairly large amount of work going on getting fully functional ICS working for the DX. It won't come from Moto, but the dev community will make it happen.
