I don't care what it is, when it has an LCD screen, it makes it better.
I have many drop calls now with the S3.
I have the Razr HD and have been doing a test for the past 3 days and no drop calls no data lost..Nothing

My wife has the s3 and for some reason the battery lasts just as long as my MAXX HD. Both of us can last about 2 work days without a a charge.Originally Posted by SIIG
I do think the gps, radio and antennae are better on my phone.though my wife's s3 camera is way better. It grabs the light setting quickly, loads quickly and reloads extremely quickly.
I actually like the maxx hd screen better for some subjective reason.
I had the s2 and switched because I didn't like touchwiz. I'm pretty happy so far but I'm definitely waiting for jellybean
The reason her phone can last two days is screen time. My wife's droid charge regularly goes two days, sometime into third cause all she does on it is talk and update her appointments in calendar. Next time you're both low, compare screen on time.

Those of you saying the extra GB of RAM on the S3 makes no difference... comparing phones in the store which have virtually no apps on them won't tell you much. The real proof is when you load up the phone with apps, widgets, background running processes, etc. Then which phone wins do you think? That's my biggest gripe with the Razr. 1 GB of RAM just doesn't seem like it will be enough. If anyone is a "power user" and can say different I would love to be wrong. The lack of RAM is the only thing holding me back from the Razr!
Alright guys and gals, after spending five days with the Razr Maxx HD and five days with the Galaxy s3, I can say without any doubt that the s3 is for me. The camera on it is amazing, the screen is SLIGHTLY better, and this thing never lags for me...and I have a ton of stuff going on it at once, from playing a game and watching a video that's in the corner...to just having a bunch of stuff running in the background.
The Razr Maxx beats it in battery life...and I like how the phone looks more, but to me...that's only a very small portion of what I'm looking to get out of a phone. My Gs3 now has an Otterbox case on it (commuter)...honestly wouldn't recommend that. Buttons on the side are harder than all heck to press. I highly suggest getting one of the cheaper cases at Verizon. They look better, and they're more functional. Not to mention I just ordered an Anker Slimtalk 3200 mAh External battery charger for this thing...which I don't plan on needing all that often. Yesterday, after twenty two hours of moderate usage (phone calls, several hours of screen time and games), I had 30% of my battery left...which was awesome to me.
HOWEVER...the Razr Maxx did have better reception in my area, which was very nice. I came from the Droid X (another Motorola phone), and that one was awesome. The Gs3 just simply does not have AS good of a reception (signal strength) in some areas for me. That being said, I noticed dropped signals (4G) more often with the Razr Maxx. Phone call quality was just about the same, despite the cell reception differences.
If it wasn't for the Gs3 (or the Note 2), I would definitely be going for the Razr Maxx HD. To me, all things considered, they're both amazing phones. But for what I need and use them for...the Gs3 is the way to go.
edit: Also, TouchWiz IS more demanding, but it appears that that extra Gig of RAM accounts for that, and definitely overcomes the Maxx HD in speed and processing.

Nice feedback.....Originally Posted by SynysterBurns91
I originally had the 1st Maxx, so after checking out the HD, the decision to go with the S3 makes my decision the "right" one for me.....
The sw features on the S3 are innovative and have raised the bar for smartphones. Maxx to Maxx HD show few enhancements. In fact moto should have released it 3 months ago.
As for battery, my maxx made it all day with going on the charger for bed with 40% left. My s3 makes it all day with going on the charger for bed with 20% (average). Win either way...
As far as build, yes the S3 feels "cheap", but how many people truly use their phone "naked"? I don't.........
