I just bought my first smartphone today. I decided to go with the droid RAZR Maxx mainly because of the battery life and i liked how it felt a lot more rugged over the samsung and the overall styling. I contemplated between the s3 for awhile though because the processing and ram speed are significantly higher on the s3. I hope i made the right choice and am excited to learn about all the things i can do with my new phone. I previously had a messaging phone the samsung rogue for the past 3 years.
