    If you means in terms of the version of Jelly Bean then yes and no. I believe that the MAXX will get 4.1.2 but 4.2 is out already on some newer devices. Correct me if I am wrong forum. I did not check my facts.

    Yesterday I went to Verizon to by some screen protectors and I saw the maxx hd..Wow very nice but I just couldn't see me buying it..It doesn't seem all that different.Heck I bought my maxx 6 months ago lol..Anyways the lady said the only real difference is that the hd has jelly bean.So that's why I was asking the question..

    Jellybean for the og razrs was leaked Christmas morning. Now its debatable how "finished" it is but I'm using it and its version 4.1.2 and working flawlessly and can happily say I have no issues with it. Other people say they have big problems. As far as an official update to Jellybean all we know is Q1 of 2013.

    Edit: to answer your question on what it brings to the table. One for sure has to be better battery life than ICS I went from 12-14hours on ICS with heavy use to 18-20hours of heavy use. Another is "Google Now" which is super awesome. It also bring "Project Butter" which helps Jellybean run smoother when doing everyday things. And more minor changes like the lock screen, some new ringtones stuff like that.

    Went from the RAZR to the RAZR maxx now have the maxx HD, my thoughts were yours. Til I got it, never drops 4g at 106dbs never even thought of putting it 3g lock. And the battery is albeit the same gives me 30% more life. Differences in performance is major. IMO.

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.

    Other than obvious cosmetic changes. Difference is the HD screen and a slightly better processor and by slightly I mean .3ghz better Lol and I doubt you notice "30%" more battery life though with an HD screen. And being 15miles out of a major city I'm at -96dbs so keeping 4G is not a problem on my OG RAZR.

    My shop is within 3 miles of two 4g towers my house is on the other side of those 4g towers also within 3 miles. Freeway runs right next to them. I live in a county that has 5 million people in it and everybody drives around with GPS and cell phones. I know it sound illogical that my dbs are low (high) but I can post those facts too.

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.

    Considering your phone is sitting idle for 17%-24% of the time if you aren't getting more than a day of battery life I'd be worried. But since you are, those battery stats are not very surprising Lol I could easily pull over 24hrs if my phone sat untouched for that long.

    I went from 2 day 16 hours average on GSAM now I'm at 2 days 2 hours granted only 25% yes the one one sitting idle is my typical weekend phone usage and after that weekend my average went to 2 days 13 hours if you noticed. But look at the other ones. I have no hidden agenda to pad my results. You're the one that inferred I was a liar. I have owned all 3 phones and you? Until you have you cannot speak of my experiences.

    "stroped" of my razr maxx, poo.

    I'm lucky if I get 10ish hours on my Maxx now after updating to the leaked Jelly Bean. Before it was roughly 18ish hours, depending on heavy or light usage. Don't know why my battery life decreased while everyone else's seems to be better :/

    I don't know..Ive checked out the maxx hd, I just see no reason to get it..Seems the same as the maxx.Even the Verizon rep told me, matter of fact a couple of them said that. They said wait for jelly bean..and you'll have the same..Motorola said it will bring the same across the board..Another words us maxx owners have top notch phones..Until they come out with a phone that cooks me dinner or drives me to work,,,,I'll stay with my awsome Maxx!

    I was very content with my maxx, only complaint was if a was emailing or on the web (3g) an incoming call would fail some of the time. And I wanted a new toy to play with. The radios and/or the antennas appear to be much better in the HD.

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.
