Cellcom soon to be carrying the device

A regional carrier Cellcom will be carrying the device soon under the name "Motorola RAZR™ MAXX 4G LTE". Same spec but slight carrier re-branding within the OS.

ICS update is coming NOW!

I bought my Droid RAXR MAXX yesterday and the clerk said Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) should hit it in the next day or two. I ran the software upgrade check and it was ready immediately. A good friend with the same phone just got the OTA (over the air) update today.

If you want the latest and greatest Android software, run the check and get it. BTW it took about 20 minutes to download over WiFi on a pretty fast network. Now that Vzw has "upgraded" me away from unlimited data, I'm not using the 3G or LTE network to get large updates like this.

Camera feedback & iPhone 5

So far everyone loves the maxx and I'm on the fence...i love all the positives except one....taking good photos and video is important in comparison to what is now available on mobile phones now, and I've heard some reviews state pics are muted in color and not very sharp on the maxx.

How is the camera if you own the maxx?

Also, if camera isn't very good, should I wait for the iPhone 5?

short battery life?

ok, so i got a maxx a bit over a week ago, and did the 3 battery cycles that people posted about online to get the best battery life. i have never gotten more than 36 hours or so before it powers down because of low battery. this weekend, i used it a lot because i was off from work, but after 27 hours of heavy usage it was at 5%, and i'm just wondering if i got a defective one because i've read reviews of people using it for 2 FULL days (over 48 hours, not just 36 hours) and having 30% or 40% battery life left. i'm only asking because i only have another day or two left before i can return or exchange it, and am only allowed one return, and was going to call them today and maybe have them send me a new one. any help or advice would be greatl...

I just ordered the MAXX (took advantage of the leap day sale) and got the sale discount $100 + they honored my NE2 of $30 = $169.99. Will receive (at the latest) 3/14.

Radio Improvements?

Does anyone now have the maxx that had the razr? I have read on a few reviews (even from engadget) that the maxx not only has a better battery, but also that the radios were tweaked and as a result it gets better/more stable signal?

Anyone experience that?

times of charging

how much time takes this phone to charge? it has a nice battery but, if i have to wait 12 hours to fully charge it everytime, that could be a problem. Confused

Battery Life

I got this Thursday afternoon. 50% full out of the box. Immediately charged it... took about 3 hours to get to 100%. I spent approx 6 continuous hours on it that evening downloading apps and setting it up the way I like it. When I went to bed the battery was still 60% full. I checked when I woke up and it was 40%. I used it throughout the day with normal use. The battery was down to 5% around 9pm that night. Given this use I would expect most people to still have to charge it nightly but there should be no issues getting through the day unless you stream a lot.
