    Had all 3. I stuck with the Note 2, way too much power and innovation to give this up.

    The Maxx Hd camera is crap compared to the GS3 and GN2. Camera tech has never been Motorola's strong suit.

    I switched from an HD to the S3 and the S3's camera rocks. Way better than the HD's camera. If you take a lot of pictures with your phone I would stick with a Samsung device.

    Since you have all three, how would your rate the reception on them? I picked up an S3, but seem to be getting a lot of complaints with garbled calls. It was so bad that when I was talking with tech support they had me switch to a landline so they could understand me. It also seemed like the S3I had took very dark pictures. I swapped it out with another S3 and the camera is better, but the signal strength seems comparable. I'm not sure if I'm going to have enough time left in my trial period to do a thorough test of the call quality.

    The black crush issue is also bothering me.

    Does your note 2 or hd maxx have the black crush issue? Do you think I'd have better luck with the note 2 reception?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Unfortunately the Motorola has better reception than any Samsung I have owned yet. I actually still prefer the better camera over the reception. The battery life between the note 2 and the Maxx are the same to me. But again Motorola had the market nailed for reception similar to black berry. Not sure what black crush IA honestly. The only issue I ever come across one or two times a day on particular apps is it timing out and force closing turning the screen black for an extended period of time. But my bionic did this two on tapatalk every time I attempted to views pictures in a thread.

    Re: Note 2 or S3 or MaxxHD or ?

    Do you guys really think its the phones reception vs the service provider? For instance with all my phones in my house if I switch to 3g my signal strength goes to full bars, on 4g I'm on 0−1 bar most of the time. To me that's the service providers issue not 6he phones. This has been the issue with iphones, htc sensation, and all my various galaxy's including my current phone the note 2.

    Re: Note 2 or S3 or MaxxHD or ?

    No, the Motos are just fabulous wrt reception. My Note 2 is a hair less awesome, but has been very good for me so far.

    I always thought Moto got screwed by Verizon with the 4g rollout; there where so many problems with the tower software (remember the Sim card authentication bug?) that Moto got sheared as a side effect.

    There are really iffy places where my bionic would barely hold a call that the Note can't handle, but they are very rare.

    Most annoying thing is that there is no way to turn off 4g and force 3g, unless you are rooted. If you are in an area with fringy 4g, that will chew your battery.
