POS Where it Counts Most

"Despite Verizon's rather thorough coverage of San Francisco, our Chocolate rarely showed a full four bars of 1x or EV-DO. While this probably is not an accurate reflection of Verizon coverage, it was an accurate reflection of the Chocolate's reception. This phone had a difficult time holding on to a signal. When signal strength was good, calls were still choppy. When it was bad, the phone dropped calls quite consistently. Although the phone initially showed a signal in our bank vault test, it could not make a call and when attempting to do anything else the indicator bars quickly disappeared."

Just like I suspected. Who gives a [expletive] about a QVGA screen and Flash UI when you can't make a phone call?

By contrast, when Phonescoop did that vault-test on the original RAZR, they made crystal clear calls. The V3c/V3m is notorious for holding onto a signal even when no bars are displayed.

I'll take a RAZR, crappier screen and all, so I can ..*gasp*.. actually make some phone calls!
