    I went from a razr maxx (I've always had motorolas) to a samsung galaxy s3. The s3 has some serious battery issues and everyone says it sounds like I'm under water when I talk on it. I really like the s3 but I'm within my 14 day trade in on it and am thinking either the razr hd or the note 2. Please tell me how the battery life is and any cons you have for the note 2. I read some reviews that say the back cover is very flimsy on it.

    I have had all of the phones that you reference in your post - Razr Maxx, S3, Maxx HD and the Note 2...I have both the Maxx HD and Note 2 on active lines and as much as I love Moto, the Note 2 is my main device...battery life is great (stock) and even better rooted, ROM'd...the screen size is great, the S Pen is quite functional and the build quality is good (still has the plastic back, I replaced mine with an aluminum back so it feels even better but you lose the NFC chip in the back cover)...

    Overall screen viewing on the Maxx HD and Note 2 are similar, the Note 2 might have a bit of an edge but both devices are great...if you can get some hands on time with them, you really should just to see how they both feel to you...

    Good luck!

    I've always been more of a Moto fan and I'm waiting to see what the rumored X Phone is all about. What way did you end up going?

    Xtor, I wonder if it's the Bluetooth? I have a hard time hearing on my LG Bluetooth but very loud on my Motorola Bluetooth.

    My only complaints are the placement of the power button and volume rocker. I am constantly pushing them accidentally. Other than that, coming from my razrs that I loved, this note is a lot of fun and a whole new world in Android. My biggest worries (data connection, phone reception & battery) have proven to be no worries at all.
