Motorola has at least 3 phones in the pipeline after the X Phone

Yesterday, there were a couple new rumors that came out regarding Motorola, the X Phone. Most of the info pertained to things that we had already talked about. Our source has confirmed that it is unlikely that the X Phone will have hardware customization, and the release window has always been for late June or July, so there has been no delay. But, we've also confirmed another part of the rumor: Motorola has at least 3 phones in the pipeline after the X Phone...

It's all fine and good if you want to stick up for Motorola, but the fact of the matter is, that after a few months of ownership, many people had various issues with the phone. In fact, of all the phones released by Motorola around the same time, the most highly recommended one on Verizon's website was the Droid 4... A whopping 53% of people would recommend that phone. Awesome... I'm happy that your buddy had a good experience, but for me, I will never own another Motorola product.

Funny you should mention what's highly recommended on Verizon's website. Out of the phones released by Verizon at that time, only the Droid 4 still exists on their site. So my question is, how do you know it was the "highest recommended?"

In the meantime, the Razr HD is recommended by 80 percent of people. 91 percent recommend the Maxx HD. That's only 5 percent less than the 96 percent who would recommend the Galaxy Note 2. It's also TWO PERCENT HIGHER than the 89 percent who would recommend the iPhone 5. It's 12 percent higher than those who would recommend the iPhone 4, and 5 percent higher than those who would recommend the 4S. How about that.

Hell, the Galaxy S3 gets stomped by all the Motorola models and iPhone models in percentage of those who recommend it at only 77 percent, and that's a top seller.

Amazing what happens when you apply logical consistency to a situation, isn't it?

But you just said that every single replacement you got was from Verizon. That means they were all rebuilt by Verizon, not Motorola.

I'm not claiming that Motorola's phone support is good, because my experience there is similar.

And no matter who the manufacturer is, there is always a percentage of phones which fail in some form or fashion. I'm not saying Motorola is perfect. I'm saying that you shouldn't assume, due to your experience with warranty refurbs, that Motorola sucks all the time.

And frankly, the phone I'm using right now is a warranty refurb from AT&T originally manufactured by Motorola. I'm back to using my Atrix (which I replaced after I dropped the first one so many times that the phone started shutting itself off all the time) after I busted the charging port on my Galaxy Note. The Atrix refurb has been in my possession for over a year and has performed admirably, especially considering it's running beta software that was never finished by the developer, Jokersax.

It's fine to bitch about the quality of the refurb jobs Verizon does, because they've sucked for the five years I've been keeping track. However, don't take that experience and put all blame on Motorola for it.
