Hello! I love my trusty, now "old" DROID 3, but I am planning to upgrade pretty soon... maybe within hours, since Amazon is allowing me to upgrade now despite my date being really May the 22nd. I love the physical keyboard, but there's not any great phone out there anymore (no offense to anyone) with a keyboard (wouldn't get the DROID 4 or Stratosphere II). So I have been playing around with the current phones, and the ones that have been more realistic for my budget-which us uber tight at the moment-are the RAZR M, the white RAZR HD, and RAZR MAXX HD. I like all of them, my preference being for the white HD, the M, and lastly, the MAXX HD (for budget and weight/bulk considerations-I know the MAXX HD is better than the HD, at least in paper-theory.)
Since I am able to find the HD for what I consider to be a good price ($49.99 at Amazon), I am almost going with that. However, the MAXX HD is not much more expensive, at $69.99. HOWEVER... aesthetics and feel are so important to me, never mind my budget, in which even $5 dollars make quite a difference. I know it seems as if I already made up my mind about this, but does anyone actually like their HD over the MAXX HD more, despite the superior "firepower" (I know, it's identical minus the battery and higher internal storage) of the MAXX? And does anyone still like their HD, if you still have it?
As discussed on another thread, I also "had" the option of the "free" DROID DNA, but the special offer Verizon coupon ENDS on the 21st, and Verizon is being stubborn in not allowing me to renew my contract before the 22nd (that IS silly, but that's what happens when you let the letter of the law rule against common sense.) However, it may end up being in my favor, since for my taste, the white HD DOES look better, and feels better in the hand, despite the worse specs and inferior camera (plus the HD battery life is so much better anyway).
In short (and please be nice, haha!) is it so wrong for me to want the white HD even though I could get a slightly uglier-but better-phone for $20 bucks more?
By the time anyone answers, I may have already decided, but still, I am always curious to hear more users share their RAZR HD love/hate stories. Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend.
