    I was wondering the same thing. Maybe it's my imagination but the charger that came with the Maxx seems to charge faster than my old Motorola chargers.

    I've been using my old stock chargers. I'll have to check that out when I get home in a week. Does it list a different voltage or amp?

    The bionic charger y that I've been using reads 5.1v 850ma and the Maxx charger reads 5.0v 1150ma so that would explain the difference in charging speed.

    I think I got a slightly strong signal with my Bionic. The signal strength back here is bad to begin with, but with my Bionic I could pick up 4G (barely). With my Maxx I can't pick up the 4G.

    I also went from the Bionic to Maxx. The OTA updates from Verizon were causing my Bionic to crash daily. The Navigation, texting, and browser would all cause the phone to crash with heavy use. I lost root and wasn't able to regain it.

    So far, the Maxx has been OK. I will miss the ability to swap out batteries. I've got an OEM external charger and 3 extended batteries for the Bionic. The Maxx was easily rooted. I'm hoping there will be a bare bones ROM for it soon.
