Are the radios undoubtedly better with the Motorola line vs Gs3? Or is it pretty close?? Because if the only clear advantage of the HD Maxx is the battery, then ill probably go for Galaxy s3 if not for the fact that it has better longevity (more RAM...replaceable battery...better camera....etc).
I'm actually due for an upgrade as well and considering my options. I've never been a huge fan of Samsung but I find the S3 compelling. In the end though I'm leaning Motorola for my next upgrade. I'm kind of holding out for the holidays though to see if they'll run some deals to get me some extra data since I'll have to ditch my unlimited plan. By then all the upcoming devices should be available too, including the rumored Droid Incredible X and possibly a new Nexus(Nexuses?). Either way though waiting is probably the best bet. Unless you're dead set on the S3 for your next device. Still, since you have to live with your choice for the next two years it might be worth a wait.

Considering its down to RAZR Maxx HD and Gs3 for me, is there really a point in me waiting for the Maxx HD? It sounds to me like the only true advantage is the battery life...and I only use my phone fairly heavily for two or three hours our of the day. So its not that big of a factor.
DO you want your battery to last ridiculously long? Go with the MAXX as it has no peer in the mobile phone arena.
Do you hate stock Android? Go with the Galaxy since it's got Touchwiz.
Do you want the best reception? Go with the Motorola, they are untouchable.
Do you hate PenTile/want a TRUE HD phone? Go with the Galaxy.
Do you want timely updates? Skip them both.
Get the s3,the razr will be a year old phone in another month... I've got both and the s3s bigger screen,way more efficient processor and ram alone is reason enough, the replaceable battery is the icing on the cake.
