    Ehhhh.. well depends what you want out of your phone. Great large display. Or long battery. Both are phenomenal phones. Just depends on what you want out of it. Me... I would go with the maxx

    Well I have the DROID bionic. When I switched phones for a day with my friend I had got 18 hours of moderate use. That is great for a smart phone. Especially a DROID.

    Abuse it, 5 hours of screen in about 20 hours, 4 hours on the charger. Never have to worry about a plug. If your going to stream movies you can watch 2.

    I just made that switch from VZW. My Nexus simply would not hold a 4G signal. I love the Maxx. Love everything about it
    Do it

    They also let me pick up a 32gb SD card at a local vzw store ($0) due to the Nexus not having a card.

    Search this forum for a thread by FoxKat ....... He IS the battery guru!!

    Very basic "copy" from his text is this:

    1. Turn phone OFF & fully charge on stock charger.
    2. Run phone, as normal, till "re-charge" warning comes.
    3. Turn phone OFF & fully charge on stock charger.

    DO NOT LET THE BATTERY "DIE" !!!!!!!!!!

    For a MAXX repeat this process every 2-3 months or so. In the meantime, charge nightly or how ever you wish.
