    I bought a RAZR early December and was extremely pleased with it. As a result two of my friends bought it and kept bugging me with the troubles they were having. I dismissed those claims as them being really bad with technology.

    Then I drowned my phone and, being happy with the model, decided to buy another RAZR. And that's when I saw exactly the same issues:
    1) Phone being much slower (in WhatsUp I can count to 2-3 before a tread opens).
    2) Screen blinks randomly when turning the phone on or swiping the Home screen.
    3) Camera almost never takes pictures in focus. At average 5 takes are necessary for it to focus correctly. So I have to take 3-10 pictures and then keep the one in focus. :(
    4) Often the icons on the Home screen become bigger and don't fit on the screen anymore - need to reboot.
    5) Browser closes down very often, loosing all opened pages.
    6) Plenty of other lags and random freezes.

    The weird thing is that the last time I have unlocked the phone myself (my carrier didn't propose the RAZR).
    This time I bought an unlocked phone from Motorola directly.

    Since I doubt that this could be a hardware issue (my both friends having the same), I think that this is probably some Motorola driver or addon causing problems.
    Have you got any ideas?
    In the worst case, does anyone know how to re-install the OS from scratch on a RAZR?

    THANK YOU for any help!!! :)

    You can use RSD Lite 5.6 to flash completely stock official Verizon software. Check XDA or google for the procedure and files needed. Note that this will COMPLETELY WIPE YOUR PHONE.

    I just did this yesterday in preparation for the ICS update.
