Re: You guys here have me concerned.

2011-09-03, 14:45 PM

I have read a lot of posts on here and other Moto forums (X2, D3) and I'd have to say that joel is proably the best and most even keeled MotoXpert on the forums.  He gives good advice and is always polite and respectful unlike some of the other MotoXperts on these forums.  I have found a few that seem just downright rude and condescending in their posts and replys.  I mean, if they get so worked up that they can't respond in a polite manner and they are aren't being paid to be here then maybe they shouldn't be.  I think they could all take a lesson from joel.

No disrespect, but you might get more of a reaction to your post if you started a new discussion instead if hijacking this one.

Don't feel like you have to be apologetic because you've have a good experience with your X. Not putting words in your mouth, but that's the vibe I get.

There must be plenty of stories like yours, or word would get around that this phone was Moto's Edsel (Google that, young folks).

Can't say my experience matches yours even remotely.

I just like to express a counterpoint every now and then.  BTW, I'm old enough to know what an Edsel is without Googling it!  I think your problem is in you live in swdallas (I'm assuming)...you need to move to where I'm at in NE Fort Worth (NRH)!

Sorry Eric. I'm with the poster from Texas.

Rick:

Are you kidding.  After all you've been through, you are the last one that needs to say "sorry".  I can't believe you've stuck with Moto as long as you have.  How many is it now...6, 7 phones?  Also, I'm in North Richland Hills, TX so swdallas and I are practically neighbors!

It's not important, but I'm north of Dallas. The user name is outdated, hence the 2010.

Not following on the hijacking, buffalo. Threads often go off on tangents to make a point.

Bringing this one back to the OP, I would say that this is a good phone.

Mine has had more than its fair share of issues, whether they be app-related, Blur-related, or as some may insinuate (user-related due to a lack of "computer knowledge"). For that reason, I don't trust it.

Would you put yourself in a life-or-death situation and feel safe with this phone being your only source of communication with the rest of the world? I wouldn't.

Doesn't mean it's not a good phone. As a "second" phone, and that's what it is for me, it's fine.

You just don't pay what we paid for this phone and expect to get the experience I know I have.

Although the GB fix greatly improved my X experience, I moved on to the X2, because I could get a newer phone at no cost.

After the GB fix, my wife is back in love with her X.

If (when?) I upgrade to one of the new 4g phones, she will likely inherit the X2.

That is, unless she has to have the same phone as me, which she will.

Joel needs no defending. I was kidding calling him a Moto homer.

But, I completely agree with your other statements. In this forum and others, there are many "experts" that must be delusional enough to think people are just making up these issues, OR that people are intellectually inferior, less they figure it out for themselves (like they did).

Where was the disclaimer before I purchased this phone saying:

"3rd party apps may render this phone a buggy and glitch-filled device. Each subsequent software update MAY also render the phone similarly buggy, due to said apps. Be expecting to spend countless hours troubleshooting, reading forums and researching to keep your phone in a useable state. Be prepared to wipe all your phone data for said troubleshooting, when software resets are needed. Be prepared to have your 3G connectivity drop in and out. Be prepared for lock-ups, rebooting and battery pulls, usually at the most inconvenient times".

Other than that, it's a good phone.

All I was doing was making a point that someoe else started and in no way was trying to start an argument here.  To the OP...From what I know, the X seems to be a bug filled device that many people are getting steered away from.  My advice, from what I know, is to not get an X or possibly even an X2.  It seems that if you are going to go with a similar phone then go with the DINC2.  Persoanlly I would say wait for a 4G phone.  If you are loyal to MOTO phones and want to stay that way, then I recommend going with the Bionic or waiting a little longer and getting the Motorola Droid HD.  If you are not brand loyal to Moto there are many other options out there such as the Nexus Prime and the HTC Vigor.  Both have very solid specs and either would probably serve you well for quite sometime.  Of course the Prime would be stock Android with ICS and get future updates first.  Also, by getting a 4G phone, even if 4G isn't yet available in your area, you future proof your phone for when 4G is available where you live.  Also, I don't know how into custimizations you are, but an unlocked bootloader may need to be a requirement for phone purchases because your phone can continue to receive "updates" after the EOL for your device.  All in all, I am sure you will make the right decision for you both based on needs and price.  Of course you could always wait til early next year and see what quad core offerings might come around.  But what do I know?  I'm new here and don't even have an Android.
