    Almost time for an upgrade

    My DX has been awesome but its upgrade time and I think it's time for something with more horsepower. I have it narrowed it down to Rezound, Lucid, or Bionic. The Customer service rep said of those 3 the Bionic has had the most problems in terms of having to be returned but the other 2 have a good reputation. Can anyone comment on their experiences with any of these 3 devices. Thanks... Also do any of these come with a car dash mount included in the box? Thanks again.

    You're probably right but I want 4G speeds as well. I'm also thinking a front camera would be nice so I can video chat with the wife who will be getting an iphone. I was leaning toward the Rezound then I saw the battery specs, 6.7hours talk time, 261hours standby, thats worse that the X and I never though that was great. Probably doesnt matter though since I am always charing, at home, work, in car, its always on a charger..... Its only $50 with an upgrade though, the rest of the specs may make it worth it. Dual 1.5 processors, 16GB internal, 1080p video camera. Not too shabby.

    My friend has a 4G phone but it spends most of its time in 3G...Its an Upsell...

    Now the Phone of choice check out the New phones to be released soon don't be so quick to jump... I could have upgraded Months ago but I'm getting the same feel with these New ROM's the Dev's have Released
    It's AWESOME

    I upgraded to the razr maxx. Only had it a week, but no regrets so far :-) its been rooted and I've gotten rid of some bloat. I've also figured out how to still use the car dock from my dx for the maxx. Simply take out the 4 screws from the back, gently pry open the front from the back of the dock, remove the charging wire, screw the dock back together, remove the sleeve that's in place for those x's not in a case, and good to travel. The car dock mode isn't triggered by using the x's mount but saves you the $30+ that vzw charges in store. Only issue I have with my razr maxx is that it's not properly creating a backup of my rom in cwm. No .android_secure file created in the backup folder. There's an easy root program to root, unroot, and restore the stock system (though haven't tried returning to stock yet) you might consider the battery life, or there's new phones due the next few months by moto using the same battery, or there's quad core beasts with up to 2 gigs of ram around mid year or so. Easiest thing to do is go to a vzw store and spend time playing around with each phone, and make sure you get something you'll be happy with for the next 18 months.

    I would love to flash new roms, but, all them seem to have bugs one way or another.

    How ya Do'in Chessnut...

    Your Right with some Bugs...

    But the New Phones can have Bugs too...All I am saying is give yourself a chance to experience a New ROM from this Forum...

    There are so many Members/Lurkers/Staff people to help you here...Will get you on your "A Game" and work thru the issues...Most are Cosmetic

    I'm Not saying to you not to Upgrade...Just Experience the ROM's here without having to Upgrade so soon..

    What you Buy Today might be Old News Tommorrow...Just a thought...
