    Got the phone fully set up, smart actions at the ready. My experience and opinion of the RAZR is an A

    Reason I gave it an A is because I have yet to come across any major issues.

    Major issues:

    Loss of Data
    Reboots
    Instability
    Text, Email issues
    Call quality
    Dropped calls
    Failure to GPS Lock
    Poor Battery life
    Force Closes
    "BSOD"
    Poor 4G to 3G handoff

    After a full week if none of these issues rears it's ugly head. I'll give the phone an A+

    I haven't had any issues yet at all and I am surprised at this. I still can't believe how smooth and fast this device is.

    No issues yet. The only things are some minor things that can be fixed by software.

    I'm a great fan of my Razr as can be seen with my posts. But, I'm not real thrilled with the battery usage. Time will tell after I charge it a few more times.

    I've been waiting for your take. Did a search on your posts and found this. Perfectly what I was wanting to learn. I (as well as probably everyone here) want SO much for these phones to be as smooth and responsive as the iphone has been. Could you attest to that? I am not tempted in any way to go to that OS. But will be picking up a new phone within a few months and just want a no compromise experience. By your review I take it, we have arrived.

    So how good is battery life for you? I presume you are close to heavy user and I wonder how it does in 4G automatic, performance mode in battery setting. I have seen mixed reports on Razr battery.

    Android has never been as smooth as iOS (as an overall experience) but the RAZR still delivers the goods when it comes to smoothness and speed. It's as fluid as the SGSII. Bionic users are saying it's as smooth as that device as well.

    The RAZR is very responsive. It just works :)

    I got 7.5 hours Friday. No Wi-Fi. Using only 4G the entire day. It was a moderate/Heavy day.

    I excluded all the tinkering, poking and prodding of the device as usage.

    Last night came off the charger at 11:00pm, smart actions shut down all data, syncing etc from 11:45pm to 6:45pm. Haven't thrown it on the charger since last night.

    right now (8:15pm) with moderate usage I'm at 50%.
