i'm not overselling a device based on the Company's successful history, i'm just sure that the HD will uphold with the same kind of performance we've seen from similar handsets from Mototola and other similarly spec'd devices. that's certainly not too much to ask.

*sigh* again with the lack of info. the SIII is certainly a solid handset, i'm just saying the HD can tango too. the Razr outsold the Nexus and the Razr MAXX now outsells the iPhone on Verizon. that was their latest Flagship device so what were you saying?

"You're just sure" -- BASED ON WHAT. you can tell the future?

Similar performance. yes from the 2 out of how many handsets they released in the past years? and it really isnt two because the Razr and the Maxx, in essence, are the same phone.

Yes the Razr may have outsold the iPhone in Q1 but, the best phones aren't always the ones that sell the most. iPhone has proved that theory true for years now.

no, just from a consistent basis. haven't you ever heard the phrase innocent until proven guilty? there's no logical reason why those problems you mentioned would crop up. that's just your bias against Motorola taking it's hold on you.

why does that matter? Samsung releases lots of handsets but only a few are renowned as great devices. same point you're trying to make against Motorola just on a different magnitude.

oh and they're separate devices dude, each have different price tags. i'd have a MAXX right now if i just liked the color.

oh so suddenly sales are irrelevant huh? doesn't it indicate the popularity of the devices if they're selling well? i'm sure that didn't come to mind at all when you were talking about Samsung's greatness. xD see i don't mind Samsung, on the contrary, i think they've done great. i'm just saying Motorola definitely has a fighting chance. i don't see how you can say anything about that being that i had to correct you for every little piece of information about Motorola you brought up. you don't know anything.

"A consistent basis" when you say consisitent, you are referring to the OEM's hisotry of releasing good devices, otherwise, there is no other basis off which someone could reallly judge a phone. I don't see how innocent until proven guilty applies to phones, I guess what your saying is every phone should have a chance? Thats true. I'm giving the Atrix a chance, so I don't see how that applies to my conversation.

Did I ever say sales were irrevelant? I said "aren't always", So I don't know what you're saying there. People are always referring to the Galaxy Nexus as the best mid-range Verizon phone even when the Razr got ICS. And not just because of better specs most professionals just believe the experience is better on the Nexus, then there's Jellybean and all that I never said Motorola doesn't have a fighting chance, earlier, you threw at me Moto's history of making devices that
1) had good support for lapdock
2) were durable
3) sported good antennas

So I threw out Samsung's history, during which you suddenly went against the whole "history talk" and made it evident that they have had much of a greater impact on the modern world of smartphones. Please refer to "every little people of information" because you're speaking in generalities, instead of bringing up examples.

yeah, pretty much.
so what was that about "Atrix HD may be horribly optimized, with a lackluster camera and bad battery life."?

oh so you can pick and choose when it's relevant? that's convenient. i don't know where you've heard that but most people preferred the Razr hence the sales. most reviews i see for the Razr pretty much say that it's better than the Nexus but it's lack of ICS keeps it down. not anymore. your whole argument was based off the new Atrix not being able to stand up to the likes of other phones on AT&T.

...what are you talking about? you threw out Samsung's history as a way of stacking the company against Motorola for the sake of your "the Atrix can't be as good as the SIII" argument. how delusional are you right now? xD

i'm not saying one is better than the other i'm saying that the Atrix HD has a lot to fight the big boys with essentially because it is a big boy but not marketed as one. oh so you're knocking my personal taste huh? may i remind you that the recently launched Galaxy Tab 2 only matched the Xyboard's specs which has been here since last year and it's implementation of 3.2 and soon ICS is similar to that of ICS for their phones so that's completely right about it.

Ahh now I see why you so valiantly defend motorola, you've owned so many of their devices, most of which were low-shows or fails lmao. Xoom, Bionic, Devour, X2, Droid 2, Droid 3, Xyboard(ohh wait.. Xoom 2)... So many Moto brands are dying, not a suprise them must implement so many new names...

I have to say, the Droid brand is getting old... But the devices branded Droid are good, especially the new ones. I think the only phone that should be called a Droid is the original Droid line. But they should keep up with the Xyboard, 1 Droid phone and 1 Droid tablet

Hopefully Razr HD will breath new life into this dying robot. Motorola has been pulling an HTC for so long now.

the Razr HD will be the update they need but for it to "breathe new life" they would have had to been dead. the MAXX is outselling the iPhone at Verizon now.

And thank you Berzerk for not taking the childish, Fanboysh approach that Kurog-whatever, is taking.

I wouldn't say King is childish here, he brings up some good arguements. And yes, he may be a bit of a Moto fanboy, but who can blame him? Motorola makes awesome devices, and apparently Moto has served him well in his past experiences with smartphones and tablets, so he trusts their devices. I might be more of an HTC fan, but I can still recognize a good phone; I might actually pick up the latest Moto phone if the next iteration of the One series doesn't impress me at MWC next year (I hope that's when they release it).

Well, he's based most of his arguments on marketing, which is an important thing, but I think he forgets that phone sales are also based on reputation. And Moto has one of the greatest reputations in the mobile world, they made the first cell phone (though a margin of people don't know that), and all throughout the mobile industry, has had some of the most popular phones ever. Like a few years ago, when the original Razr flip phone came out. EVERYONE had one, because they were so awesome, and everyone love Moto. And when they brought out the Razr brand again last year, everyone had a nostalgia-gasm! And that's why they're selling so well, not only because it's a great smartphone, but because of reputation

i still like the Droids from all of the OEMs. i like the darker marketing scheme. it's more badass. i actually don't like the Xyboard name, that's something they messed up with.

the XOOM my dad got himself for a steal. he uses it for work and needs something with dependable wireless reception. the Bionic is a solid phone, better than most other Flagship devices at the time. Devour was my first Android phone, i was learning the ropes but i still liked it none the less. i just used the X2 to get the Bionic. in order to take advantage of a BOGO they let me upgrade a line REALLY early so i got it and the Droid 3. i used the X2 for a few weeks then took it back. that gave me the leverage to use that line to upgrade to the Bionic when it came out. the Droid 2 was a solid phone, one of the most powerful of it's time. i loved my Droid 3, i miss it to this day. the Xyboard i use for School, i don't like 10.1" tablets and this hit a sweet spot. it has everything that the recently launched Galaxy Tab 2 has.

Oh ok so circumstance was the reason you purchased a series of less than impressive devices. Droid 2 got OK reviews.. nothing special and Droid 3 was a fail, through and through. The Galaxy tab 2 line sucks, even considered to be worst than the first, which, most considered to be the better than the xyboard. Finally samsung makes a bad device, eh?

the Droid 2 was just a smaller Droid X. i liked having a keyboard so it was ideal for me. the Droid 3 being a fail is your opinion. it has one of the most fantastic keyboards to ever be graced on a phone and it was the most powerful phone in the states until the SII came stateside. it doesn't suck. they feel better in the hand than the originals and they're powered by OMAP4s which are no slouches powerwise. the only reason why they and the Xyboards were considered bad is because the Transformer Prime set a new standard for critics. my sister got one before i got my Xyboard, it's wireless reception was horrible. we have a big house and even our Cisco E3000 Router which is 802.11n doesn't cover every place in the house. my Xyboard gets a signal in places where her Prime drops out completely. that reliability and compact size is what i was looking for and it's not weak at all, not by a long shot.

If i am not wrong this phone rocks a snapdragon s4 .
And I have a feeling that next nexus will have snapdragon s4

Well, there might be about 4 Nexus' next time around. Most, if not all, will most likely have the S4, but the Moto Nexus might have the OMAP5 chip in it. The Samsung Nexus might have the Exynos 5; I don't know the status of production on the S4 Pro, but if it can be used in phones about the time of the release of the Nexus' the HTC and LG (or Sony) Nexus' will probably have that.

First gen moto dual core device packs tegra 2 .
But they suddenly change to Omap
Because they know that the next version of android will be better optimised for Omap .
So current motorola devices suddenly switching to snapdragon
You know what's going on with the next nexus
