    I got rid of my RAZR Maxx HD a while ago for a Note II and sort of regret it. I love it but at times I feel it's too big and the build quality is abysmal. I am the type of person who can't stand creaks and my Note II makes them from top to bottom and even the battery cover. Any negatives happen to the RAZR lately? I'm going to tell Verizon that after two Note II devices have failed on me (Could not make calls or receive texts and the other kept rebooting itself) and many that came damaged where the panels were scratched beyond belief that I would like to go back if possible. My OCD has kicked in and I'm just not happy no matter how powerful this device is.

    I got mine the day it came out in October. It's been flawless. The only problem with it has been my wife making me upgrade her phone to one also. We "stole" my son's upgrade because my wife wasn't yet due, so know my son is pissed. Damned phone.

    Nice, I've had so many random force closes and other crap with my Note II and I don't ever remember my RAZR doing this.

    Interesting. I've considered switching to the Note 2. I tried a DNA but couldn't handle the poor battery life. My RAZR MAXX HD has a lot of laaaaaaaaaaaaaag issues. No force closes though...

    That's what scares me. The force closures on the Note II are completely random but annoy me. The phone is overall better than the RAZR but I am one of those rare people who prefer a big non removable battery. I can't stand my creaking trims and back cover at all.

    I'm just afraid I'll miss the camera, speed and overall performance of the Note II. Battery life is fine and screen is amazing. Test out the Note and see if you like it.

    I've had mine for about two weeks now and the only force close I have experienced is the iHeartRadio app. It immediately force closes everytime I open it, but then it opens back up automatically and runs without any problems. I'm assuming it's a problem with that particular app because nothing else gives me any trouble.

    I spoke with Verizon regarding switching back and she said that pending supervisor approval but I should be able go since I had the device prior to the Note II. If all goes well I'm sure I'll miss some things about the Note II but I'd rather have a premium feeling phone. I'll miss the big screen but I always feel like I'm about to stop this phone due to its height.

    We shall see. I hope I'm not making a mistake but I guess I'll try it out before I send my Note II back.

    Verizon called me back today and asked if I still wanted to switch back to a RAZR Maxx HD and I politely said that I would. I'll be receiving the phone tomorrow barring the snow doesn't stop FedEX delivery. I'm sure I'll miss some aspects of the Note II but random reboots and stock application force closures isn't part of that.

    My RAZR had slightly worse signal strength but no dropped calls. Not sure if I ever said I dropped calls but if I did I apologize for the mis-type. Granted, I found out this odd signal strength was because my house is in an extended 4G area so either way not great. A few blocks down the road and its an actual 4G area. As for the Wi-Fi issues I was having that's more or less Jelly Bean 4.1 at work. My Note II does this too on every router and considering my new Asus router is top of the line I'll just accept its a fault that can't be solved. This may be why my tablet which is on ICS doesnt experience an issue.

    As for the Note II the issues could be overlooked but definitely having issues that others have reported. Random yet constant force closure of applications including the stock messaging application. Beyond that I do miss the build quality of Motorola as I am not a fan of this plastic type feel. Overall though, the Note II is a fantastic phone and I'm a big fan of Samsung but I'm happy to be going back. I find myself using two hands every time because I don't feel secure using the Note II one handed.

    And no foul taken with the comment. You're correct I've been really vocal about my issues. No technology is perfect though and I'll openly admit I may have jumped ship a bit too quick.

    My two good friends with Note 2 have no issues at all. I've mentioned my issues to them and they looked at me clueless.

    I have had the Maxx since November when I switched from the Thunderbolt. No problems at all!

    Hubby got the S3 & regrets it. I played with a Note2 today. Much too big for my tastes.

    Tell me about it. When I bought my 08 Civic EX Coupe I had some horrible rattles. Metal on metal from bars bumping in the trunk but I fixed that. My dashboard always had this distinct rattle in colder climates too. My friends 07 Civic which is essentially the same car had none of these rattles until he hit 117,000 miles! My car had them from 1,000 miles... This same friend has a Note II with no issues. Haha

    ...Tis okay. He still has the Civic Si and I have an Acura TSX. I win!

    Just do a factory reset to get rid of the lag....for a while anyway.

    I admit the RAZR ran slower than the Note II when I had it but not much lag. I didn't have much running though and no widgets were on my screen. Basically weatherbug updated every hour and gmail instant sync. Nothing big. I surged the web, bit of Netflix, texted and talked. Do people with a lot of lag run more?

    Weekly? Mine hasn't had a single freeze or crash or any lag since I did a factory reset about 10 days ago.

    Have you even tried?

    Unless you meant just rebooting the phone which is not what I mean. I was doing that maybe 3 times a week before the factory reset.

    I just did a factory reset a week ago. Intermittent lag already.

    Even pulling down the notification shade gets sticky.

    I'm wondering now if my comments about a weaker signal on the Maxx HD were due to multiple faulty devices. The device I have now matches the numbers of the Galaxy Note II unlike the previous devices which were -15 dBm or more higher.
