Feature for feature seems like the maxx is a closer match to the S3.
And we are honestly impressed as even Samsung’s most affordable handsets like the Galaxy Mini II are getting bumped up. More advanced phones like last year’s Galaxy S II and mid-rangers like the Ace 2 and the unique pico projector-laden are all there as well. Check out the full list below:
Galaxy Tab 2 7.0
Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Galaxy Note 10.1
Galaxy S II
Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus
Galaxy S Advance
Galaxy S II LTE
Galaxy Ace 2
Galaxy Ace Plus
Galaxy Mini II
Galaxy S DUOS
I get mad when I see lists like this of budget and phones I never heard of getting updates further than my at one point "flagship" Motorola.... hopefully Motorola turns around and continues updating their line up as updates are extremely important but I won't be waiting for it

If you're referring to the original Maxx, I don't really understand that thought process to be totally honest. The only thing the original Maxx has over the M is battery size. All other areas, from a spec/feature standpoint, the M wins out: processor, software, nfc/beam, build quality (equal anyway), etc.

True. I was referring to the Maxx HD

display and camera were far better than on the Razr M. I did a side by side comparison on which phone pulled up webpages quicker, and the Razr M, won hands down.. They may be due to "chrome".. As regards to battery life, there's no question that the Razr M's battery lasts a good 30% longer than the S3. i have never in my life made it through a whole day on one battery charge with any smartphone ive ever had, and I did with the razr M! The only thing I miss about the S3, was the display, and the overall appearance of the phone..
I've got M cause I hate huge phones that dominate Android space and cause many people to stick with iPhones. Basically if you want more or less modern specked Android phone that is easy to hold with one hand and that won't stick out of your pants on Verizon the M is the only game in town. It's still compromised in terms of screen, camera and abysmal audio but otherwise has decent build and specs. Beats me why with Android bigger is always better, I thought it was all about choice. S3 not only was too big for me but it felt too plasticky and flimsy.
im sure the plastic they use in the samsung is pretty damn tough.. Plus metal phones are prone to denting..
slightly derailing here:
I have a galaxy nexus and I love/hate it. I was never happy with the size; I always felt like the iPhone was close to the perfect size, but its screen was way too small.
Everything else about my nexus, I love. I didn't even root it (i've had many other androids and rooted all of them going all the way back to the OG droid), and it's performed as one of the best phones i've owned. I really love how smooth it is, though that's in part to having jelly bean on it (which i think the m already has?).
I've seen the bench marks, but I'm curious how it feels in 'real life'. I want the size of the M so bad, but will i notice/complain about a drop off in performance/smoothness coming from my galnexus?
I went from the og Razr Maxx to the M. I think performance wise the Maxx was as good or better than the gnex in several areas. Camera being the only one where the Razr's pale in comparison. Display may also but have not looked at them side by side to really compare.Quote:

What the M lacks that the Maxx had is hdmi out, front facing camera I think is only 1.3 mp, and smaller internal storage (8gb). I never use hdmi or the front facing camera and with a 32gb sdcard, I have not been limited at all by the smaller 8gb storage... so, for me, the M suits my needs much more than the Maxx.
Depending on the spec differences between the gnex and the M and what you use with your phone, you may have the same conclusions.
