    Now if they found a way to get that kind of life out of a 2000ma battery, that would be something to talk about.

    Doesn't the Maxx get like 10-12 screen on time with a battery that is not even twice the size of the GNex, which gets 2 hours or so?
    I think their battery life is pretty noteworthy to me.
    Is anyone even getting 5 hours screen on time with that huge 3800 battery on the GNex?

    Starting with the Droid 1, before Moto started using the bigger batteries...Motorola phones have usually been near the top or at the top in overall battery life for Android phones. They still do something besides the bigger batteries to have decent battery life.

    As far as I know Moto's have one of the better radios, that gives better cell reception. My current phone's (GSII SkyRocket) battery drains heavily when I have a weak signal (constantly searching for the strongest signal).
    In my opinion, Moto has one of the better build qualities, similar to Blackberry. I still see people walking around with the O.G. Droid.

    Moto already has:
    ~ Great cell reception: Alwasy top notch
    ~ Great battery: Maxx
    ~ Build quality: Usually very durable

    Now we just need:
    ~ Hardware: Moto usually has good hardware. I want great, to ensure satisfaction through a 2yr commitment.
    ~ Great Software: Moto has been getting better, which leads me to next want. (see below)
    ~ Hack-ability: Moto's security is excellent, too good. Modders want a easily unlocked boot-loader.

    For my ideal 'daily driver' phone.

    Wait. "we just need"

    But "Moto usually has good hardware" - In terms of fit, finish, and materials, I think Motorola's already there. I just hope they source better components (better, higher-quality cameras - maybe even better screens (quality not resolution).

    In terms of software, I think Motorola's already there. The ICS/JB MotoBlur is excellent and lightweight. It's not stock, but it's clearly Motorola - and that's what every OEM wants. Clean up some of the icons maybe.

    "Hackability" is something that should definitely be low on the priority list. Modders are the 1%.

    The hardware thing is more about the "spec" components. Processor, ram, storage, res, ect. They are always good on their flagship, but never great or bleeding edge. Many this does not matter to, but those of us that keep phones for a long time and want that pushing the envelope performance it does.

    The soft ware thing I do agree with mostly. The latest MotoBlur is better and on the right track, but still needs refinement. Needs more visual conformity.

    "Hackability" is the last big fault moto has. Even if it is not important to you, it is important for the overall success of a devise. It brings devs and devs bring ppl that both take advantage of their talents and don't. It brings tech literate consumers that tell friends and post about it on the Internet. There are all kinds of advantages to it. It is one of the main reasons Samsung has been so successful despite other flaws.

    It is actually the reason I just passed on a Maxx hd. No way to unlock on a non development one...

    Is this because the RAZR M and HD shipped with an S4 and not an S4 Pro? lol.

    "Hackability" isn't important to regular buyers. App developers matter and a device doesn't need to be "hackable" for that. ROM developers aren't all that relevant as you make them out to be. The ability to flash a new ROM on a device is insignificant to the 99%.

    And no, being "hackable" isn't a main reason for Samsung's current success.

    I love the direction this thread is taking.

    My comments did have in it "my opinion" reffering to my own needs/wants.

    I posted a while back ago that I thought Moto was cleaning out existing inventory. while coming up with new hardware, phones.... I expected there to be a Moto phone drought, before Googlorola realsed their vision of a Smartphone. Time will tell, what the new Moto has to offer. I hope they don't wait as long as RIM did, who lost a lot of market share and loyal customers, waiting for BBX.
