  1. It great to have all the tips in one place.

    I used a safety pin to open the microSD slot, I hope I didn't ruin it.

  2. Great work.

    The Smaractions can be confusing at first. The widgets and homescreens should be programmed the way you like them.

  3. The battery life on the RAZR HD is better than the Nexus 4. The 4G LTE is very enticing. I love my Samsung Galaxy Nexus, but hate the battery...

  4. I find that the voice actions works really well. I've stopped typing all together. Love the voice stuff. I'm using it now.

  5. No one comes close to the battery power of the Droid HD RAZR MAXX. I just wish I could remove it.

  6. I like the way you introduce the videos first. It makes it easier to learn. I also like the first video for the general overview.

    The great way to learn, quickly.
