I wanted to give an update. I'm now on MAXX #7.

MAXX #5:
-Flawless software (never once froze)
-Hinge was perfect
-Battery life issues
-Totally different screen (color reproduction/brightness was different)
-Keypad loosened up and buttons got mushy and crunchy

-The software froze everytime I picked up the phone
-Every other pic/flix message caused the phone to reboot
-Black screen appeared if receiving a text while in another menu
-Hinge clicked when opened
-Camera was not as good as others
-The keypad on that one also started crunching/sticking
-The keypad had more raised rubber bumpers (the only + I can think of)

-Software seems stable
-hinge is solid
-keypad is solid
-camera is better

Let's hope this is lucky #7. Some hints on whether or not the software will be stable are, if the startup and shutdown sounds skip and mess up, the software will likely NOT be stable. The 3 I've had with bad software/hardware would always screw up there. The 4 I've had with good software play the full startup/shutdown correctly. I was considering just swapping for the EnV, but it's such a big phone.
