I had the Maxx for a couple months and switched to the S3. Could not be happier with my choice! The Maxx is a solid phone and built really well but I just hated the design of the phone itself. I did not like the boxey square feel. The battery in the Maxx is of course better than the S3 but I get a full day out of the S3 with modertate-heavy use so I have no complaints!!! The design and camera are far superior on the S3 as well. Both are solid phones so you cant go wrong either way!
all I've ever had has been motorola phones. It's a definite adjustment. I've had no experience with a razor maxx. SpaceOriginally Posted by bsweetness

I too have a phone addiction like a previous poster wrote and can't help myself so I went from the Maxx to the S3. Love the S3 so far but every once in a while when I pick up the Maxx (gave it to my wife and she is always asking me for help w/ it) I can't help but to caress it and reminisce.
Going from a Rezound (which I accidently bricked) to S3. The Rezound's radio is a tad better. Saying that, the S3's standard battery has been serving me better than the HTC's extended battery. Maybe Moto's battery is better, but the S3 is probably good enough for you. But I agree, the expense is not worth a side-grade.
Was in big debate but I was tired of my Moto phone randomly resetting and crashing all the time. I think the only thing Maxx has on S3 is battery and build.
For me SG3 > Maxx, my s3 hasn't randomly reset at all yet so I'm happy.
I got the s3 and I say hands down keep the razr or the maxx or the Rezound or the Thunderbolt my previous phone lol... If ur Moto keeps resetting get a free replacement its under warranty the radios in the S3 is absolute garbage the screen ain't up there with the One X screens and the auto brightness is a pain cuz its always too dim and it's build quality blows compared to the rest!
I have no problems with the radio's on my S3. I get the same reception with my S3 as I did with my maxx. The battery is not as good and if you think that the S3 feels cheap get a case. The screen brightness is good on the S3 you just have to remember that the screen brightness is the main settings does not control the brightness for your videos and apps you have to set it in the settings of the app. If you compare the two phones the S3 wins hands down. And if you have to have it for the next two years the S3 was made to make sure you can get the latest software updates. As far as the razor maxx no one knows if it will get jellybean or not
