    The M is considered budget because of its initial price point and less than best hardware.

    And in response to the post about comparing a budget phone to a high end one. You can very well compare the two when the specs and performances are so similar.

    The Nexus 7 is compared to the iPad quite frequently. And the Nexus 7 is definitely toward the budget price point. But they made it so well it can be compared to higher end devices.

    Okay, so I've never had a smartphone before. Am I going to notice a huge difference between the two? The size of the s3 is the main thing scaring me away from it. Fears over battery life are concerning me with the razr m, and also that motorola may just ignore the phone if it doesn't sell well.

    So far, for being a budget phone, the only thing that seems budget about it is the price. Comparing it to my Maxx, it performs as well and in most cases better than my Maxx...still have great reception/signal, battery life is great, display is so much nicer to look at, the UI is smooth & so much more convenient. I never thought I was going to forfeit my Maxx because it has worked flawlessly for me, but this M might do it.

    Like I said in a previous post, Motorola cut corners on this phone by eliminating the hdmi and only including a substandard front facing camera. I have never used either of those things on my Maxx so no loss here but for someone who does, they would not want to get the M.

    Battery life on the Razr M has been excellent. Some people have reported 30 hours. I have gotten over 13 hours with constant use and 24 hours the first cycle (I've only had it for 2 days, so can't provide any thing more from my own experience).

    The size of the display/screen on the M is close to the same size as the Maxx and SG3... they just stretched the screen to the very edge of the phone on the M (edge to edge) so they could make the phone smaller.

    Reception on my M has been excellent... so far as good as my Maxx.

    I don't think the M is going to be ignored. I think because of its price and the phone is amazing, they will sell tons so they will stay on top of it...imho!

    Yeah, finally got it. Called again this week to get status and they sent it out. I'm loving it. And they sent me the black one, woohoo (I so did not want the white one...but can't look a gift horse in the mouth so that would've been fine too)!

    I'm not sure I get that. It feels more sturdy and solid than the Maxx. No plastic, just aluminum, kevlar, and gorilla glass.

    Ah, the Eris... great little device! I'd agree with you accept the M has Droid 1-like build quality. ;)

    My wife is still using my old Droid 1. If the M is any thing close in build quality I will be very happy.

    people have to start coming to terms with that lol.... my last three phones have been Motorola (d1,dx,DB) but if the s2 came to Verizon when the DB came out.. I wouldve got that.. its a better phone.. I'm more for getting the best phone than going for a brand that I like

    Wouldn't the Razr Maxx be a better comparison to the GS3?
