I know many of you will think "cool story, bro" or whatnot, but I figured I'd post my impressions after nearly a year of iPhone anyways. Since I just received my Motorola Razr Maxx from the factory (I picked this unlocked option after some research), I must say that things have really changed since I had my last phone. Back in the day (aka, October of 2011), I was still running Froyo and an unstable build of Gingerbread on an Evo 4G. I remember hating the Evo so much (and the software as well), and how I never wanted to come back to Android. I had gotten rid of an Epic 4G earlier in the year, and remember disliking the pentile display and other things. But since I am moving for school to Canada, I figured I'd try it again. I already have an iPhone, so why not? Well, I just got the phone today, and it's ridiculous. The software is really smooth, and the hardware is pretty solid as well. I know Motorola is a different company than HTC, but it just hit me that many phones are this thin or even thinner nowadays. Heck, I was worried about the pentile display and even that technology seems to have changed! qHD definitely makes the display look better than what the Epic 4G had. And we're just talking about the Razr Maxx running Gingerbread, not even a Galaxy S III or an HTC One X! I actually had a flashback of a conversation I had with a friend in 2010 saying how Android just doesn't work for me, but it has a ton of potential. Well, Google and phone manufacturers definitely played on that potential, and from what I heard, the experience is just getting better and better. tl;dr? -Android is much better now than when I left it. -I learned a new lesson about keeping options open when it comes time for a new smartphone. -There is still tons of potential left with the Android OS.
