"Fabulous - Switched from BB Storm"

The Droid Razr Maxx is an incredible phone in my brief experience - replaced a BlackBerry Storm I've had since the Storm was first released. I've duplicated all my Storm applications with better performance, a larger screen, and far more capabilities. They even improved on my password manager - the same one from Storm only it imports and exports on the Droid. MotoCast has been fantastic. I've loaded my entire recorded music collection, and have online access to all of my digital photos (more than 10 years) and computer documents. SugarSync works great for documents with both OfficeSuite (best) and Quickoffice (2nd). CompanionLink allows full syncing with Outlook for a better Calendar, Contacts, Memos, etc. with DejaOffice. Evernote is wonderful, and I was among the million who added Instagram on the first day of the Android version. AV Antivirus seems to perform. Elecont Weather, US Radar, Alerts, Quakes is an impressive improvement over WeatherBug - with a clock that has a second hand. Go Droid Razr Maxx - I'm all about the extra battery time! Opera Mobile Browser is tremendous - syncs all of my bookmarks, after importing Yahoo (indirect conversion works). Try NeoCal for a radically better RPN calculator. I go with VZ Navigator over TelNav and Google (tried all for performance, places, etc. - others have specialized uses, but VZ Nav is overall winner). TweetCaster, LinkedIn, Facebook, Yahoo mail all work great - built in email, not so good (don't need it). Added Quick Notes for a nice reminder widget. Also use My Verizon Data, Slacker Radio, Alarm Clock (for count-down timer), and Aquarium for a great Live Wallpaper. RoboForm integrates, but I use Password Keepox because it's needed. I also installed Graffiti because of nostalgia and familiarity from my years with Palm - faster than keypad for me, and I don't like Swype. Didn't have much success with different launchers, but I like the 5 screens that are standard (with my Aquarium). Have also used Skype (although haven't gotten video working on it). Voice Recognition still sucks, for me; but not needed. Wifi works great. Haven't been able to test Bluetooth. Smart Actions partially useful - mostly to get ideas on power conservation. Definitely fine tune, with so muc going on, because even with jumbo battery, you can drain supply if you keep everything going all the time. But, does a good job, once you get personal routines down. Night-and-Day in comparison to every phone I've had before: multiple BlackBerries, many Palm generations, and a 'brick' from the old days (with battery power that is unlikely to be replaced, even with Razer Maxx). I'm partial to the larger footprint of Razer versus BB and smaller phones - but also compared to tablets, which are too big. Razr Maxx still fits on belt. Definitely get the Verizon-branded Shell/Holster Combo with Kickstand - great feature and much better than alternatives. Only real nit is: why is the power cord so short? I substitute the cord from my Kindle - more than twice the length.
