My Razr and I are at that point of our relationship that can best be described as a cease-fire. I can use it well enough to get done what needs doing, but many of it's functions and settings are a complete mystery to me. I had made a deal with myself to learn one new thing each day, but that has been hard as I have been working 14 hour days the last few weeks. Basically doing what we all do; chasing the buck so I can eat.

I have got to a strange impasse witth my Razr. I'm not sure if I have learnt the phone or if the phone has beaten me down.I suspect the latter. For one, there are still a whole pile of function I just don't understand.

One of the much anticipated events for Motorola Razr owners is the rollout of the Android 4.0 OS called "Ice Cream Sandwich". For the uninitiate (like me) the Samsung Galaxy SIII, now widely considered the kick-ass of Android smatphones, launched a few weeks back with ICS installed.  Not long before, (18 May in SA) Samsung Galaxy SII users had been able to change to ICS.

As I posted in Motorola Droid Razr: First steps the first thing I noticed was that my phone leaked data. In that case, the culprit was a YouTube app which I eventually found out how to disable (Motorola Razr: Setup contacts (and the youtube problem).

When I got it 2 years back my Samsung B2100 had a 4 day battery life even with regular calls. The truth is batteries wear out and need to be replaced. Recently, I was charging it every few hours. If I thought my new Razr was going to spare me the routine, I was sadly mistaken. Motorola recommends charging it every night and so far that has been exactly the way it works out.

I am suffering from a large amount of ambivalence towards the DT (see Motorola Razr: Setup contacts (and the youtube problem)). I just find something I like a lot and then it throws in something I hate. As I metioned before (Motorola Droid Razr: First steps) the startup screen never appeared and I was having a problem with starting some apps. eventually, more in frustration than anything else, i decided to reset to factory defualt and start again.

I just got a Motorola Razr XT910. I have had a weakness for this phone since it was released
in late 2011 (27 October in SA) . Now I have one, and it has me. This phone is smarter than I am.

For those living in ignorance, the Razr has a 7.1 mm thin shape, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED touch screen with Corning Gorilla glass, DuPont light and tough Kevlar fiber shell, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of memory and the
latest Android 2.3 operating system.

And I haven't even mentioned the 8MP camera with flash yet.

At release, this phone dethroned the mighty Samsung Galaxy S II as the best on the market and, in it's turn, it was dethroned by the S III a few weeks back.

So far so good, I have it out of the box and I'm surprised that it looks huge!

The accessories look a bit sparse but I can see a USB cable that plugs into the charger to charge, but also doubles as the computer connect cable - clever

An interesting looking headset and two slim pamphlets complete the package.

See you all later, I'm off to play ...
