    There cartainly are Android phones I would buy. The Droid Razr Maxx is not one of them. You can do better.




    Scuff-gate? As far as I read, one review brought this up. Are there other reviews to do so? The phones not even out, other then to a few lucky people who got it early. How in the world is this a "gate"? We can't even know if its real or widespread issue. Its impossible for this to be anything, yet. This screams internet drama.

    If its an issue, we will find out in time. Right now, this amounts to little. Patience.

    I don't think anyone here is freaking out, Mouse. I was only replying due to CalTex's "?". It's not anything I'm concerned about.

    The term "gate" indicates someone thinks it's a big deal. Otherwise why frame it that way? I have seen a few comments elsewhere on the net that also show this true. Was pointing out that it's jumping the gun.

    I mainly quoted you there for context in my reply. Was not singling you out.

    There's a thread on macrumors about it. I think most people are using it jokingly. You know how fanbois can be, though!

    I don't read the forums there much. Prefere to read them from sites that cover all tech, instead of a single brand. Focused ones can sometimes be good for help if you are having issues.

    If it does turn out to be an issues, I guess I'll use a case after all.

    I'm not sure why it's such a surprise to people. Anodized aluminum scratches. It's just not something that particularly bothers me.

    edit - just actually looked at the thread over there, and some people ARE freaking out. lolz.

    That's what I was getting at. People have a tendency to freak out at these things before we know anything. The echo chamber of the Internet just makes this worse. As does the hype around Apple launches. Taking a wait and see attitude is the only reasonable action at the moment.
