    After having the S3 for almost 3 weeks, I am back to the Maxx. Just couldn't tolerate the lack of signal I was experiencing. It feels good to be back where I belong...except that now I'm wanting the Maxx HD lol

    WELCOME BACK!! I thought about jumping to the SG3 as well, but a friend has one and the signal losses are definitely a problem. First and foremost, my phone is a phone and when I need to call I want a signal. Feels good to be home huh? Now, the Maxx HD is a sweet looking little thing...

    I just read the reviews on Big Red's website and that was the major complaint in all reviews of that phone.

    How can it be so popular with crap signal? I don't get it. Another thing I don't get is how can Samsung not figure out a better RF solution? It's been years like this.

    A nurse I've been working with has been showing off her new SG3 and getting lots of ooo's and ahhh's but then I showed her my nearly full 4g signal on my Maxx as well as my 70% battery remaining at the end of a 10 hour shift. She wasn't happy. She has neither the excellent signal nor the outstanding battery of the Maxx.

    I'm at 15 hours off the charger and I'm showing 60-some percent left with almost 2 hours of screen on time. I was still able to get through the say with the s3, but just barely if I had 3 hours of screen time. In the end it is the radio that made me change. I thought it had gotten better, compared to my coworker and his Charge. But nope. I was showing 2 bars of signal and the dbm was at - 110 or so. I have 3 bars right now on the Maxx and am showing - 75dbm. Big difference!

    I've had my S3 for about a month now. The 4G signal was an issue at work inside my building. A new leaked radio came out a few days ago and I can nowreport that I never lose data and get consistent 4G coverage at work inside the building, just as well or even better than my old Thunderbolt did.

    The MAXX is still a force to be reckoned with almost a year after introduction, long live the MAXX!, cause I need to keep my unlimited plan.

    This seems to be a natural occurring thing these days. I will never give up this phone! Well in a few months for the maxx hd :)
