    Penny 1.55mm, versus 1.8mm thicker for the MAXX, so yeah just ever so slightly more than an additional penny's thickness.

    I switched from RAZR to Maxx. While Maxx is thicker it is actually is better balanced in my hand (not top heavy anymore).

    I can't switch because I bought the RAZR in November, but I'll simply wait until the replacement batteries and replacement backs for the MAXX are available and then do the switch. This way, I still have my RAZR, but I will have it MAXXed out! :icon_ lala:

    That won't help, the chassis is thicker and a different design. Not just a thicker battery and cover.

    A better gauge of hand feel will be percentage thicker; not simply the number in mm. The RAZR Maxx is around 25% thicker at its thinnest than the RAZR. It's still a very thin phone, but the difference is noticeable and significant, from a design standpoint. The RAZR's thinness is revolutionary for this market, though, so even though the Maxx is 25% thicker it's still thinner than almost all other comers (iPhone 4S, GNex, Rezound, etc.); good job, Motorola!

    Whether it matters to you or not depends on whether you need ultra-svelte or pretty-svelte-with-awesome-battery. I'm fine on battery on my OG RAZR and I love the feel of it, but if you even have a passing thought that you'll maybe want more battery the Maxx is a pretty easy choice.

    Have you seen the inside of a MAXX yet in order to know this? I can't find any images or videos, but I didn't search yet today.
