does anyone know how long a product stays out there (estimating ---I know it depends alot on how well it sells) before the prcie is cut? I have been waiting for the MAXX but haven't been that impressed and can't see spending the extra $100 (after my $99 credit). Just wondering..Thanks!
Hi all, I have an E-815 that allows you to change between loud, soft, vibrate, vibrate then ring and silent ring types with the flip closed. Will the Razr Maxx do this also? I would have looked at the manual on the Moto site but that would only apply to the Moto UI.
I was torn between this phone and the 8700, this one looks like it'll win me over, it'll be my 4th Moto phone since I've been with VZW.
Pretty cool feature, if the phone's speakerfone is turned on, when you are receiving a call you can just hit the side volume button to silence it..and then hold the external speakerfone button for about 2 seconds and you are connected.
I have read posts that the MAXX freezes and battery has to be removed. I already have this issue with my Q and do not want to deal with it again. I , like many, have been awaiting the Maxx's release and now after seeing it and hearing about it, am not sure whether or not to get the MAXX now or wait to see if anything better comes out within the next month or so. ALSO.........does GET IT NOW work with the Maxx or not? I've read posts where it does not!
After a day with this phone, I want to give my first impressions. After a few weeks with the phone, I'll post a thorough review.
PROS: -The phone is very well built; Sturdiest phone I've seen from Verizon -The earpiece is very loud and clear -The speaker/speakerphone are very loud and clear -Reception seems to be slightly better than the V3m, which was great (can't judge by those odd signal bars) -The screens are incredibly bright and crisp -The font is cleaner in appearance than many Verizon UI phones -Caller ID displays in large font on the front -Vibrate AND Ring -All 4 shortcut keys customizable -Relatively fast navigation (but also see cons) -Significantly faster menus than the V3m and K1m -Amazing camera
Ok, so I went to pick up this phone last night (with my dad, my contracts not up till May 15), and I had him get this phone.
In order to move the contacts, I downloaded the backup assistant to his old phone before we went to the store, so I could download it to the new one, and ta-da, have the contacts in a few seconds...
Anyway; leave the store, and GIN DOES NOT WORK!
We go back to the store, the sales guy was a freaking idiot... he plays with it for over 10 minutes, I mean while test the demo in the store (which makes calls, and recieves them) and.. SAME THING, GIN does not work...
I figure its software or something; but c'mon verizon, I'm loosing the faith by the second!
I currently have a Samsung a930 and I am relatively happy with it but thinking about making a change. One great thing about the a930 is that the volume can be turned up relatively high so I can hear the other party even on a busy street. I had the T-Mobile Razr a while back and this was a problem.. volume just was not high enough.
When I test a new phone, I charge it fully for a few days and then I each morning after a charge reset the call timers and then when the phone gets to low batt is when I start to determine whats going on.
It's nice to track battery bars as well but as we know each phone shows the 4-5 bars differently. In other words 1 bar down does not mean 25% down in usage.. You have to run them all the way down to really see what it can do..
It would be great to start seeing some times it's capabable of..
For instance the U540 and the LG 8300 are pretty consistant at 2:35-2:55 usage with blue tooth on. I can sometimes get 3:10-3:15 out of the 8300 if the bluteooth radio is turned off.
I have been anticipating the relase of this phone just like everyone else. I went to the store the day it came out and left with the sammy u740. I am still undecided but there were alot of concerns. I have tested a couple maxx's and the ones I made calls on I could hear myself talking in the head piece is this normal? Also I noticed the lag in the txting this really bothered me as I txt alot. The camera was good but I wasnt working it right. Can anyone give me some more feedback on this phone. I need to decide the sammy is good but the camera is subpar at best. Thanks
Is the speakerphone any good. As we can remeber in he v710, the speakerphone call quality was sometwhat lacking in that at times sounded garbled to the person on the other end. With that being said, is it a loud speaker, and can it be used with the phone closed. Also, is the vibrate any good, as compared to the vibrate on the LG phones. Thanks
