Phone Recommendations

So I was once interested in the DROID Bionic, is that phone no good either? What about the DROID razor? I use to have the DROID HTC Incredible too. It worked fine up until the port came loose and would not hold the charger in place in order to charge..Are there any complaints on the Iphone?

Ooohh...ask a loaded question, why dontcha...:smileyvery-happy:

To answer your direct question with a direct answer, no, I do not have complaints about my iPhone. I would like to have a bigger screen, which I was aware of going in. I would like to have brtter battery life, too. But those are small trafeoffs in order to have a phone that does what I need it to do.

The Android phone I seem to be reading about the fewest issues with seems to be at this time, the Moto Droid Razr. The big push seems to be the Galaxy Nexus, which is the phone I had high hopes for, and still do.

Also, at this time, no one seems to be able to precisely pinpoint where the data connectivity issued are originating. I am surmising more and more that Verizon's LTE network needs to be sussed out more so than we have seen since its introduction. Something that iPhone users are not affected by at the present time, but certainly will face if the next iPhone is 4G LTE-capable.

I am still anAndroid fan, but for now, I have the phone that suits me.

I have not read about too many problems with the Nexus or Razr. I would not own a phone that I could not replace the battery or run an extended battery on. I am a power user, and hate to worry about going dead or charging.

 

I would guess the Nexus would get updates and better service being a Google flagship phone, but I thought the same thing when I bought my Bionic, and I was wrong.

If you ask most folks around here, they will consider themselves a "power user", myself included. However, I'm quite bored with the term, especially when it used to insinuate that you have needs far and above most other users. 

 

There are methods of getting extended use from phones that have non-removable batteries. These methods have been discussed ad naudeum around here. It is up to the individual user, "power-" or othewise whether or not the other advantages of a phone outweigh the disadvanatages. For myself, I keep a bagful of chargers, both home and mobile. I did this even when I had phones with removable batteries.

 

If the Moto Droid Razr keeps its data connection and doesn't freeze or re-boot on a consistent basis, I'm certain that a LOT of Android users around here would make a beeline to the phone, regardless of the removability of the battery.

I have had a Droid Razr dor about 6 weeks fopr my personal phone and am very happy with it. I need a work phone and  will try the Rezound. I may get a Bionic if these issues seem fixed with the updates.

I would like to suggest that if you are happy with the Razr and it's working fine for you, then I'd go with a 2nd Razr. If you are looking for a different phone, look at the  Galaxy Nexus. The Bionic is already old news.
