    May get a Note2...please tell me the pros & cons

    I went from a razr maxx (I've always had motorolas) to a samsung galaxy s3. The s3 has some serious battery issues and everyone says it sounds like I'm under water when I talk on it. I really like the s3 but I'm within my 14 day trade in on it and am thinking either the razr hd or the note 2. Please tell me how the battery life is and any cons you have for the note 2. I read some reviews that say the back cover is very flimsy on it.

    I have had all of the phones that you reference in your post - Razr Maxx, S3, Maxx HD and the Note 2...I have both the Maxx HD and Note 2 on active lines and as much as I love Moto, the Note 2 is my main device...battery life is great (stock) and even better rooted, ROM'd...the screen size is great, the S Pen is quite functional and the build quality is good (still has the plastic back, I replaced mine with an aluminum back so it feels even better but you lose the NFC chip in the back cover)...

    Overall screen viewing on the Maxx HD and Note 2 are similar, the Note 2 might have a bit of an edge but both devices are great...if you can get some hands on time with them, you really should just to see how they both feel to you...

    Good luck!

    Here is a video review from our sister site as well...I think I did a quick compare to the Maxx HD in it...

    I've always been more of a Moto fan and I'm waiting to see what the rumored X Phone is all about. What way did you end up going?

    Yes...that was just a plain screen protector that I picked up at the Sprint store - nothing fancy. I upgraded the screen protector on VZW Note 2 to one made by Spigen...
