Re: [Equipment] Current top Android phones?

Any idea if and when VZW might push ICS to the Razr/Razr Maxx and what worthwhile features it would add?

Also, the Droid 4 is out and getting surprisingly good (or at least much better than I expected) preliminary user reviews on the VZW website. Sometimes I really miss having a physical QWERTY keyboard.

Too bad VZW is so heavily invested in Motorola (or is it now Google?) smartphones. After a year and a half with a quirky Droid X I'd be happy to abandon Motorola if only there were a decidedly better option. I'm fully eligible for an upgrade in early April.

If you like a physical keyboard the Droid 4 is the way to go. I never had any problems with my Droid X and really prefer Motorola phones because they always felt better built to me. As for ICS the date being mentioned is sometime in the 2nd Quater but who knows for sure. I like the Razr the way it is so I hope they don't rush the update.

I'm in the same boat. inexplicable slow-downs or lock-ups to the point that the power button doesn't even help you get out of it (gotta take the battery out to do a hard reset). I've tried app-killers and everything short of rooting it but it still feels slow and bloated.

However, if the Razr Maxx doesn't have these issues, I have no other problem with getting new Motorola phones. Definitely be interesting to see what Google-Motorola puts out in the next two years.

I can upgrade at a "discounted" price right now but if I wait until early April I qualify for an extra $50 off. Besides, by then they might have some more attractive options or perhaps a lower price on the present models.
