1) I still don't get what people expect from this camera. It may be worse than the S3 or the iphone but it's definitely not terrible.
2) What do you mean by horrible ergonomics? It has on screen buttons, power on the side that is easy to find and easy to press. Compare that to S3 which has a physical home button to clearly cater to iphone owners not Android enthusiasts which clearly most people on this site are.
3) Both phones come with bloatware. It's dead simple to disable which makes it disappear from the app drawer and stops it from running in the background.
4) You can get the Maxx HD on Amazon or Wirefly for $199. The non-Maxx version which has similar specs to S3 (dual core 1.5ghz cpu, 16GB ram, less ram but larger battery) costs the same $149. Apple charges $100 for 16GB of storage space alone, with Motorola you get 16GB of space and a larger battery for $50 extra. Tell me again, how is it expensive?
Really, the only thing you can knock the Maxx HD for is the camera which coincidentally is not any worse than the one found in the OG Maxx. Sure there is no perfect phone, but if you ask me, from what is currently available out there, the Maxx HD comes the closest.
