I have a Droid Razr Maxx HD that I have been having some problems with so am deblating on rooting it. I've reset the phone several times, and sometimes the issues go away for a bit but never for good and I'm getting tired of it. I'm wondering how many of these a root would help with and if you recommend rooting it. 1) Battery life. For a device that's supposed to (and used to) have an amazing battery life, I find it's often dying by the end of a day where it just had moderate use. 2) Missing text messages. Sometimes I receive messages (it makes the text message noise, flashes the color set for texts) but never receive the message and when I open the text message app there's nothing there. This doesn't happen that often, but happened 2x today and is quite annoying when it does happen as I don't usually know who to tell to resend the message! 3) Slow. It seems to get bogged down sometimes. I'll close all running apps, but sometimes it still takes a long time to respond to button presses, opening apps, etc. 4) Charging. This one may be a hardware issue, but it charges better with some chargers/power sources than others. Sometimes it seems to be a connection issue, if I wiggle the plug in the phone it will start/stop charging. I have to have the plug just right for it to charge, but other times it will say it's charging, I won't touch it, and I'll come back a little while later and the battery level will have actually DROPPED (and more than just it would have otherwise in that time). This particularly seems to happen when charging via a computer USB port (multiple computers). My Nexus 10 charger drains the battery on my phone too though.
