So … I try to support RW, I really do, mostly because I come from a background of regulating competition, and I want to support the competitive upstart. But I’m getting tired of “defending” my choice when things like the following happen with my Moto x (2nd gen):
- Interacting with automated phone systems (e.g., customer service systems) is difficult when on wifi – buttons are much more sensitive, so keying in any longer number correctly is basically impossible and I have to switch to cell.
- New networks that I can’t actually connect to regularly pop up in the middle of other activities (when I try to use the “Forget Always” fix recommended by others, my screen just freezes)
- Activation time on startup feels like I’m waiting for a vintage 386 from the '90s to boot up.
- Sometimes I can’t receive calls on wifi while texting, or receive emails while on the phone.
I think I’m about ready for my last run at a successful RW phone. Any recommendations for the least frustrating phone? Much appreciated.
