I'm not an avid motorola fan or of verizon, but from what I've seen in support, they suck. After months, you're forever alone. :/ Motorola needs a flagship phone and it's not going to be a droid and it must not be sold only to the red carrier.

Agreed. A flagship series for Motorola is needed. HTC already established their series, it's time for Motorola.

Motorola phones typically suck. Are surprised? Anytime you buy something that's from them, you're typically taking a big risk at being abandoned when it comes for update time later on.

So you're saying that the Bionic, Razr, Razr Maxx are not good phones? I will concur on the fact that other phones have not been the best, but understand smart phones of this variety are still relatively new.

I'm ready to upgrade my og Droid X and I do enjoy Motorola's phones but in order for me to get this it needs to have one of the next gen processors in it. If it has an S4 or Tegra 3 then I will get it. But I won't if it has the current processors, not when the "superphones" are so close. This looks good just give me a BA processor and I'm sold.

I'm in the exact same boat as you. Droid X and looking for a high end next-gen phone before I use my upgrade. Important for me is a higher res screen than the RAZR and a longer bat life close to the Maxx. After my girlfriend got the htc rezound and my best friend got the Galaxy Nexus, I'm pretty disappointed by the display quality on the RAZR. And the camera on the Gnex was just awful.... So I'm still waiting.

Dont make me buy an unlocked htc One X this year, Verizon.

Same here. OG Droid X. Really wanting the Razr Maxx, hopefully this thing will carry a similar battery. Still hoping for a Verizon version of the Galaxy Note.

Isn't that the truth. Then Big Red will charge an extra 100-200 on a 2 year cost for it.

Thats why I got the Galaxy Nexus. It might not have a quad core processor or best camera in the world but i love the display and ICS and will continue to get updates while the rest are collecting dusts. This looks like it could be a good device but both Motorola and Verizon have screwed their customers over multiple times. Droid X2, Droid 3, Bionic, Razr, Razr Maxx, Droid 4 and now this device. I will SMH in shame if they do it again.

LOL, continue getting updates? You mean like the Nexus S and Nexus One? Or what about Samsung's poor track record for crappy phones that tend to have all kinds of reception issues?

Are you blind? CM Punk and The Miz are two entirely different wrestlers.

Am I missing something here. As a RAZR MAXX owner myself, the Verizon logo is also on the bottom. The picture in comparison looks more like the the Droid RAZR and not the MAXX. The Motorola logo at the top is polished in chrome while the Maxx has a black chrome finish. I think the poster needs to correct this mistake.

" The leaked picture shows the Droid Fighter side-to-side with the Droid RAZR,"

It is the razr. Read before you post.

You are correct, the phone on the left is the DROID RAZR™ (or, could be the MAXX™); I do not know what the phone on the right is. My educated guess is they both images of the RAZR; the left being the DROID RAZR™ (with a distorted perspective to appear larger, while the right being the European Motorola RAZR™ (or, Asian Market variant).

This is just a story for the rumour mill; relax RAZR™/MAXX™ owners.

I'll be surprised if this phone "Droid Fighter" will even have ICS. It seems to me like Motorola hasn't released "ONE" phone with ICS and still no updates to ICS on it's recent released phones i.e. Droid RAZR MAXX.

So what's the tally for phones with ICS on the market so far?

yeah, i thought so.

Really? Are you not reading the news updates? HTC is releasing several ICS phones and releasing ICS updates to it's current phones. Samsung has released ICS to it's GS II phones. What's Moto doing? Nothing!

What now? Yeah, I thought so. We can play these kiddie games if you want troll. lol

we know Moto is going to release updates to their lines the only difference with HTC is that they've shown us what they're going to give us. we've already seen what Moto is going to be pushing but they just haven't found the right time to show us yet. it'll probably be when they announce the Fighter and Samsug has released ICS to ONE phone and it's more like an ICS touched up version of TW4.

nothing BIG with ICS has actually HAPPENED yet.

I thought Moto was going to slow down releases of their phoens to focus on high-end? Doesn't this like make the 3rd version on the Droid Razr already with Razr, Razr Maxx and this Droid Fighter which is basically a Droid Razr with a bigger screen? I am staying away from Moto because by the time you get your new phone home the upgraded Maxx version is announced!

so ur going to stay away from a manufacturer because they continually improve....? because they dont take a year to come out with 1 or 2 new features? i'm not sure how that makes sense. i love it, keep coming out with new stuff to give more choices to consumers. this is a strange time we live in that people complain about too many choices.... and btw, typically when a new model comes out u see the previous get a slight discount so i say come out with 4 or 5 more in early 2012 so that the current line up (which will still be beasts of phones) are down to a more respectable $99 on contract :)

So your saying its fair for Motorola to sell a customer a device they are calling our cutting edge flagship phone knowing full well the uprgraded version is sitting in the warehouse ready to be shipped in a month instead of being honest and saying, "well we will be having an upgraded version of this one in a month so if you wait you can make a choice of the two and on top of that this model will be discounted." Is that good honest business?
