Made my trip to Verizon today. I was really disappointed with the new line of Motorolas. I started using motorola phones back in the days of the startac. I switched 2 times, once to an HTC (not too bad and back before iPhones and Androids) and Samsung (also before the new stuff and the same bad reception). I just didn't see the X being much improvement over my razr maxx. I'm going to give the LG G2 a try. I'll have a couple weeks to give it a try. The signal was on a 5 and the X was on a 4 at the store. Good reception is important as I need it as a phone first for business and all the other features 2nd.
I know the bars don't always tell the story but I couldn't run db tests. The big, clear screen made a nice addition for my aging eyes.
I appreciate everyone's input.
