Well I will never own another Samsung again. Owned 3 and all of them had awful radios and wifi signal problems. The Maxx has the superior build quality, radios, larger display, better speakerphone and earpiece and a much better battery. If you are one of those people who feel the need to flash a new ROM to your phone ever other day, get the GN. If you want the better phone of the two, get the Maxx.
