Replied to: Motorola's new focus
August 13 2012, 10:26am
This could just be my personal experience, but my Droid X is one of sturdiest designed phone I've ever used. So much so that after 2 and 1/2 years, both @casschin of the gdgt team and I are both still using it after our 2 year contracts ended. Albeit, the headset port is kind of messed up now, so maybe you're right that they have issues with ports, but what do you expect after 2 years of headphone jacking. And don't get me wrong, I'll be upgrading to Google's latest and greatest when the next Nexus comes out, but the ability to take 2 years worth of drops, not a scratch on the glass, and a stable software build, is what has allowed me to wait it out till Google's next big unveil.
So, maybe Motorola's design has already changed with focus on durability since your experience with the original RAZR?
