    Consumer Reports on S3

    CR just reported there test on the S3. It said the S3 is the Cats Meow when it comes to smart phones. It only got a little Nudge out by the Maxx because of the size of the Maxx battery.But Display,Phone,Camera,Speed,The S3 in general went to the top of the list.

    Is there any thing that the S3 can do that can't be done with the Maxx or the S3 will do better?

    The s3 has nfc
    The s3 had s voice, RAZR Maxx only has voice actions/search built in, have to download another app for that (i use the speaktoit assistant, pretty good)
    S3 had s beam, sharing via nfc? To other Samsung devices
    S3 had 2 gigs of ram, but honestly i haven't noticed hiccups on my drpid razr maxx
    Samsung includes switchers in the notification pulldown, I've added that with widgetsoid on mine, but its a third party app.

    That's just a few

    Do you think it is worth the money to get it to replace the Maxx ? I love the battery life of the Maxx that would be hard to give up i am sure. I know the s3 has a larger and sharpper screen. I want to get away from Verison there service is not good where i live. I have a BlackBerry 9930 that has NFC and i am surprize that the Droid Razr and the Droid 4 doesn't have NFC ?

    One thing about ths S3 is that its popular enough to get battery cases that have extended batteries, or you can purchase spate batteries to begin with.

    I wish Motorola would release the razr on other carriers (obviously can't use the droid name though) to make it popular enough for accessories like that.

    As for you, i can't make that decision, that's up to you. What's best is if you can walk in a Verizon store and play with one yourself.

    No it is not worth the money with a RAZR Maxx vs S3. I had the RAZR which was great but horrible on battery life. I only got the S3 after losing the RAZR and insurance would not give me a new one. I So I got an upgrade for less than Maxx.
