    I saw your other post. If you are in a low signal area then you best wait for the Maxx to be free or less than 100 with upgrade. I had the Nexus since launch. Even though I had one of the good ones with no signal issues, it's reception still was inferior to the Maxx. The Nexus had terrific 4G performance though but pretty lousy battery life especially compared to the Maxx. The only real issue I had with mine was that the microphone would cut out during calls forcing me to hang up and call back. Not a real big deal but pretty annoying. All in all they are both good phones but the Maxx wins hands down in being a "phone". Nexus is really fun to root and rom with a beautiful screen and a fast camera. Good luck with whatever you choose.

    Hi. As you see by my handle I'm no stranger to the Moto Droid, a D2G. I just upgraded to the Razr Maxx and I'm really loving it. There's plenty of really cool things about this phone that I'm finding out, even just writing this note. And even tho the Razr is super bigger than my D2G it's far lighter and surprising less awkward. So, glad to meet you all!
