    Since the only big difference with the new Maxx razr will be the battery, you guys here have a good history to draw from now regarding this phone. I hear it is really solid But, what are the biggest annoyances? Is the hotspot issue I heard about a significant hardship to anyone here? Has the phone's width been an issue for anyone with "girl" hands like me? Any other major gripes?

    Thanks!

    I would. If I didn't already have the Razr I would be getting the Maxx. The best smartphone available just got even better! :icon_ lala:

    P.S. I have man-sized hands so I can't comment on your girl like hands issue. ;)

    Thanks for the reply. It would be hard to dissuade me at this point anyway! :biggrin:

    I use the hot spot feature on my Razr with no issues...

    If money is not an issue, I say definitely. If you want to save some cash, you cannot go wrong with the Droid RAZR.

    I heard that you can't access certain major websites (yahoo, etc) from laptops tethered to the hotspot. Not a problem for you?

    Got to have that extra battery whatever the cost. I'm coming from the t-bolt, only usable with that huge extended battery. I am so done with worrying if my phone can last a day, especially while traveling, without carrying a brick. ;)

    In that case grab the MAXX. It's truly a stellar piece of equipment :)

    No gripes with my RAZR. I love it. I haven't checked out the Maxx, but if it's just a tiny bit thicker it's probably still thinner than 99% of the phones on the market. No battery issues for me with mine, but if the two are nearly identical in size what the heck, get more juice and get a Maxx. Personally, I'd get which ever one was cheaper.

    I'm a 6' 6" guy, so I cannot comment on the girl hands thing.

    I highly suggest going into the store and getting some hands on time. Specially if you're concerned with phone size. ;)
