    Maybe they'll to make the next major update (Key Lime Pie?) before they update again. If they were doing one more, makes sense to make it a biggie. Whether the phone can take it is a different story.

    I don't see why not. The phone should handle 4.2.2 fine. Now if key lime pie comes out I'm not so sure the phones hardware will handle it but cant really say for sure till we know what it entails

    with all this lag I hope major OS improvements could improve performance. otherwise I don't see keeping this phone 2 years, contract wise. I've had it since release. But I'm hoping for 1080p screens on the Fall '13 Motorola X or maybe a new RAZR by then? :sly:

    Yea, the lag is really starting to annoy me. Clearing the cache every so often seems to help a little, but its still not great. I'd go get a GS4, but I would have a hard time leaving this battery life. I enjoy being at 80% and not 30% by the end of the day. I'm hoping that the MotoX is a valid replacement with a comprable battery.

    yep I'm soiled with the battery too. I may pay full price and get an HTC One. IF and that's a big if, it comes out on VZW. yeah I clear cache through stock recovery every two weeks or so. and random reboots in between then which do help also. but man Chrome can get slow to useless levels. Goodness the lag is ridiculous at this point.

    You're going to go with it even with a 1/3 smaller battery? It seems like this phone is like a computer where it gets progressively more mucked up and there isn't anything you can do about it.

    This morning my phone took so long with a Google now request that the screen timed out. I know that might be a network issue but it just goes along with how slow the phone is becoming.

    Ok, I like to think I know enough about these phones, but I don't know how to clear the cache on my new Maxx HD. Could someone give me a quick guide? And should this be a routine task?

    Welcome!

    Do you know how to boot into recovery?

    Here's a link in case you don't:
    Boot into recovery

    Then you go to the cache and clear it. I don't know how often it 'should' be done. I just do it every few weeks maybe for good measure. It seems to help speed things up at least a little.

    What lag? If you think that a galaxy phone will help, you are sorely mistaken, because they are the second most overrated phones in existence. But explain where the lag is, cause a don't have any whatsoever, maybe you should use a phone that actually lags, like a mytouch, or a transform, or a moment, or a hero, then you would get an idea of the definition of lag, I had a transform and the day that it took 13 minutes to turn the screen on and dial 911 was the day that I switched. This phone does everything you tell it to do, and it does it in a timely fashion.

    It sure was a beautiful rant though wasn't it? :-)

    The phone does have lag. Not as much as those 2nd and 3rd tier devices that are no longer made (which I have tried). But for a $600 flagship phone I would expect it to be faster. It seems to be getting worse with time. It seems like my galaxy nexus had less.

    More like obnoxious.....

    As for the speed, this is my first droid so i can only compare it to an iPhone 4 and the two blackberries i had prior. Much better of a device.

    Let's make sure we keep things civil and constructive here.

    I have a friend with a RAZR MAXX HD, and recently he's been mentioning that it's been getting slower. A 4.2.x update would be ideal.

    Just like a PC.. Back up and a fresh install of the OS will limit the lag. I guarantee those with lag on an ongoing basis have installed, uninstalled tons of apps leaving junk to clog up the system. It's just the way it is. Having come from an S3, I notice minimal lag. Having a second gig of ram would have made this phone for dead balls on.

    It's interesting, I left the MAXX HD because of lag and was told it didn't exist. I'm glad to see it's finally being acknowledged.

    As I understand it, the lag is NOT caused by Jelly Bean itself. There is actually a Motorola power saving script that kills performance to save battery and that is the source of lag.

    Example: the HTC First. Even though it has that Facebook homescreen, it can be disabled and the device runs stock Android and virtually lag free; and it is not as powerful as the RAZR HD.

    My point is that a smoother experience is possible on a less powerful device. TouchWiz creates a HUGE performance hit on Samsung phones, which is why they seem to lag a lot. The Motorola script causes the RAZR HD lag. It sucks, because I really enjoyed the MAXX HD (except amoled, which the Moto X phone will have the S4 screen, ugh).

    How's the battery on the s4? I imagine that the 8 core processor just destroys battery life.

    I'd imagine/hope that as things progress the phones will be able to use the battery more efficiently and we will get the same battery life out of a smaller battery.
