Better phone, over all, in general, out the box? I would give that to the RAZR. I'm a man with simple wants, simple needs. And the RAZR fits that better than the G Nex I had. Data issues can be seen from all LTE phones on Verizon. The other things with these phones...I feel the RAZR is better for the most part for the things thats not preference, like reception, call quality. Screen, feel in hand, etc...all preference. OS, speed, UI... what I will say is Moto did a good job with Blur on top of Gingerbread. And ICS is a very nice change of pace from stock Android on phones before ICS.
And I agree about the Maxx at this point in time. That massive battery cant be beat.
