Motorola + Sprint was the combination from hell....

Not since the days of the Samsung N200 had I ever witnessed such crappy phones on Sprint's network (excluding HTC). The 1st gen RAZR V3M and KRZR were slow to the point of being unusable, and their batteries lasted half a day if you were lucky. It was pretty common for owners to have the phone replaced on a bi-weekly basis.

Motorola's quality control went to crap. Their UI got increasingly stale and glitchy, and they just pounded out the same phone designs over and over.

The only positives were that until Ed Zander really killed off all innovation in the company, at least their designs were good. Whereas LG and Samsung were content making phones with all sorts of wierd lumps and bumps at least Motorola kept things sleek and materials a notch above everyone else... at least until Apple showed up.
