I think you all have summed it up pretty well. Technically speaking, GNex has a better screen, full 720p better ppi ratings, but realistically its hard to tell much of a difference. I think text is a bit sharper on the GNex, but really when you take into account battery life and signal quality, Maxx IMO is the better overall choice right now. Once we get ICS, I dont feel like there will be any reason to pick the GNex over the Maxx. Of course, by then, Quad core phones will probably be the standard and both phones will seem dated haha.
