    Razr Maxx HD

    I had the S3. Sold it and bought the Maxx HD. I don't miss my S3. The camera is not as good, but it's fine for what I need it to do. I'm relatively happy, and will not go back.

    I would like to put my experience in about the S3. I had the phone for almost two weeks and while the camera is great it was a horrible phone! I dropped 7 phone calls in known good signal areas and even lost signal altogether. It was so bad I had to exchanges it for a new S3 thinking mine was defective but it was not any better. I now have the Razor HD and it's camera is no where near the quality of the S3 but at least it works as a phone!

    Having the phone another week now I am still happy with my trade. I know the experience is not going to be the same for every user, and the phone is only one part of the equation in terms of phone quality and signal. So far I haven't had one dropped call or poor reception in the mountains of Colorado. I never did with the Maxx HD, but that is to be expected of Motorola.

    As far as battery life, my best length with moderate usage was about 30 hours on a single charge. That is more than I need.

    One other note, I got an iSkin Aura case for the phone. That is a dope case and adds hardly any bulk to the device.

    Be careful of the cases that are only protecting the phone from the sides and back. My friend only dropped his S3 once but it was enough to shatter his glass.

    S3 is a great choice seeing as its an international hit, but so is the Razr (without the popularity thing). Different strokes... I couldn't handle another touchwiz phone after my fascinate and I just hate that physical button. I could live with how DNA has it, but not with the S3.

    BIG BIG MISTAKE,wife had so many problems with hers as all her girlfriends,too many itims to list between all of them.When you hold a MAXX and then hold the S3 "Bamm" that should give you a signal. Like BMW (Razr) & LEXUS (S3)
    Thats just my opinion.

    Re: Traded my Maxx HD for an S3. So far, so good.

    Made the same trade a few weeks ago and have been more than happy.

    - never had any reception or call issues. JB radios even better...

    - battery life gets me a full day...not the MHD, but is more than sufficient

    - I have 3 young kids... I use my phone camera a LOT...

    The whole new Razr lineup is awesome. But for me the S3 has been an excellent choice.

    On another note... If you're into rooting, the S3 has incredible dev support. Given its specs, I kinda think of it like my own Nexus 4.

    I had the GS3 for 2 days and the MAXX HD for a week, trying to find a suitable replacement for my Thunderbolt (Both phones I returned).

    The GS3 was a great phone for the time, fast, great display, great camera, etc. However I hated the slick back plastic, I came really close to dropping the phone several times. The signal is slightly worse than other phones, last night me and a friend were at the movies, she has a GS3 on Verizon and I have a Thunderbolt. My Thunderbolt was getting 1-2 bars fluctuating between no data, to 1x, to 3G, where she was not getting any service at all (she even put the phone next to mine and no luck). Battery life was fair, it could last a day but I hate going into the night with only 20% battery left, as you never know if something will happen where you won't be able to charge your phone for several hours.

    The MAXX HD improved on a lot of these, but I use the camera quite a bit, so that was a major deal breaker for me. Even in bright light the photos were awful. The ergonomics IMO were horrible as well, when I held the phone the sharp edges (relatively speaking compared to the GS3) made it uncomfortable to hold for an extended period of time. The edges as well as the squarish design made it look like I had a deck of cards in my pocket, whereas the GS3 with its tapered edges made it more comfortable and more discrete.

    All in all neither phone was worth the $600-$650 I paid, and ended up returning them. I tested out the Note 2 and while it's a HUGE step up from the GS3, it's slightly too large and doesn't fit in places like my cars cup holder that I usually use to store phones in. I'm hoping the DNA is that perfect device.

    Then you won't like the DNA and its 2,020 mAh battery.
    I don't care what it is, when it has an LCD screen, it makes it better.

If I wanted to take awesome pictures on my phone, I would probably go buy a decent camera whose job is to take good pictures.
    Yes, but then you would not be using your phone.
