    I can easily see the difference, on the HD there is pretty obvious pixelation when you look at small text and any sharp edges on icons. I'm not saying it's a huge con having the screen on the HD, but the DNA is a noticeable improvement.

    11GB of storage is horrible, I'll give you that. The 2020mAh battery also sucks, I couldn't get through a day without always watching the battery and without limiting my use.

    That's true for now, but if you're looking for a phone that will last for a while the 1GB of RAM and dual core will become bottlenecks sooner than you know.

    The reception on the DNA was fantastic, better than my Thunderbolt, better than my friends GS3, and better than my Note 2.

    Are you looking at retail prices or subsidized pricing? The online price is the same as the in-store price.

    Having come from the tbolt, I couldn't wait to get rid of it! I always had a charger in my pocket and if it didn't crash, I would have to charge it at least twice a day. Had it not been for the trade-in value, I would have thrown it in the lake! So when the RAZR MAXX came out, I jumped on it and haven't looked back. I love the battery life and have not had any issues with the OS crashing like I did with the tbolt. I had an upgrade for my other line and now have the MAXX HD and was able to keep my unlimited data :p

    The MAXX HD has a great feel to it unlike the S3. With the Circle Widget, I don't miss the HTC Sense at all, especially with Jelly Bean being pushed out in a few days. The best part for me is, the phone is only as good as long as you can use it. So if the battery dies, who cares about a quad core or 2gig :blink: I stream Pandora through my Avic on my way to and from work, every day, with BT, GPS and 4G on all the time. Moderate use throughout the day; I still have 90% battery life after 14 hours 47 minutes. That there is a no brainer for me :D

    Wow, with my brick extended battery that's insane. Even with my brick, I always have a charger in range. Maybe that's why its slowly dying. Over charging it.

    In you opinion are the screen and camera equivalent or better?

    Did you really mean to type 90%? Because mine will be down to 90% after a couple hours, not 15. That seems ridiculous. The last few days, mine has been dying about 9 at night, but I am in a hotel room with nothing better to do when I get done with work. So about 4 hours on screen time, listened to music on my sd card for about 5 hours.

    With the brightness on Auto; I have not really notices a big difference in the display from the MAXX and the MAXX HD. They both have a Super AMOLED display, but the HD has a higher resolution and pixel density. With the brightness turned up all the way, I can see that the HD is more rich with contrast than the MAXX.



    Yep, 90%. That's exactly what my battery screen said when I wrote the post last night. Some days are better than others, but like I said, with moderate use, I have never got home with less than 80% after 13 - 14 hours. I can imagine you may be in an area where the signal is weak and with nothing better to do, are on it for 5 hours straight. Even then, I would think there may be something wrong... When I first got the MAXX HD, I was on it constantly, playing with everything and still it would last 2 days. That being said, my tbolt could be sitting at my desk, doing nothing all day and within 5 hours, I would need to charge it.

    Well, put my hands on the MAXX HD today. That is a pretty nice phone. Have to wait for my wifes contract to expire so I can do both lines together. Wife saw the $299 price tag and asked me to explain why I needed to spend so much on another new phone. This may take some work! Thanks guys.

    Just ordered my Maxx HD from Amazon to replace by Thunderbolt. I can not wait, I had the original Droid before the T bolt. Nice to come back to Motorola.

    I am on the exact same track. I wonder how many others are following the same progression? Your right, it was nice to hold a Motorola again. Samsung is nice, but I do like the feel of Motorola. Let us know how you like the phone. I won't be ordering until after the 18th.
