"Great phone, but the LTE network has deadly bugs"2.5 starson by lionelhutz
Pros: Beautiful screen. Android OS is fantastic. Fast, fast!
Cons: Verizon's LTE network has some very serious bugs that I describe below. Also be warned the battery life is a joke on any LTE phone.
Summary: Ok let's get right into it. Verizon's LTE network has some serious problems. In addition to the nationwide outages that are coming almost weekly now, there is another issue that happens all the time which will knock out all data connectivity on this or ANY Verizon LTE phone. This issue is well-known by this point and it causes the phone to show signal, and will allow voice calls and texts, but will have no data connectivity whatsoever. Not on 4G nor 3G. Various tech blogs think it has to do with how the network authenticates the phone, but I can tell you one thing - IF YOU GET A VERIZON LTE PHONE BE READY FOR RANDOM AND COMPLETE FAILURE OF DATA CONNECTIVITY. I've had the RAZR, the Droid Charge, the Thunderbold and the Nexus and all have experienced the same issue. Usually turning the phone into airplane off and on will fix it, but who wants to constantly have to turn that off and on? Not me. It is especially annoying if you use your device for work (I do) and you miss important emails because your phone has lost all data connectivity. And this is no fluke. This happens all the time and in any LTE market. Just google about Verizon's LTE issues and you will see all sorts of information about this. So while the speed may be appealing, you will pay for it with horrible reliability. I'm back to my Droid X2. At least it can keep a data connection.
