    So I called verizon she has a RAZR and experienced same battery dying quickly issue after ics and said a update is in the works since problem was reported to Google and vzw and Motorola. Is this just. 215? Cause that did not help me. Should I try to get the galaxy s3 or? If there really is a update. Otw I will wait.

    I would not expect better battery life out of the S3 since it has a smaller battery and a bigger screen.

    Have you tried downloading something like Bad A$$ Battery monitor to see what is using up all of your battery?

    Standard Razr in question here I think. FYI- I am getting 20 hours out of the SG3 on average and I am a moderate/heavy user. 10 days left before my cycle restarts and am at 3.125 GB.

    I wouldn't take that trade, but that's up to you. I'd push them to give me a maxx. It would either be maxx or nothing in my opinion.

    i am on a maxx, they cahnged my razr to a razr maxx. I was thinking, maybe sell my maxx out right with otterbox case, and then buy a used s3 or even a bionic with extended battery, something that gets 5+ hrs of use

    GNex isn't really a downgrade, per se. At least you gain an unlockable bootloader (if that is your thing). If modding is not of interest, i'd push for the Maxx.

    Yeah I noticed that after I posted it, I forget not everyone has the Maxx. Moot point I guess since they are only offering him the Gnex, I thought you jumped the S3 ship?
