    Tried the S3 for 2 weeks. Hated it. It was way too big and too slow. It wasn't a good experience. Battery life was horrendous. 2 weeks into it I dropped it from the back of a bumper because it wouldn't fit in my pocket.

    I switch to the Maxx HD and love it! It's an outstanding phone, fast, and works well.

    I don't have an S3, I have a RazMaxx. My son and my sister in-law have an S3 and are always complaining of static on phone calls, dropped calls and horrible battery life, in comparison to my Maxx. When it comes to build quality, radio an antenna configuration and reliability you can't beat Motorola. The Maxx HD is a new phone, there will be plenty of ROMs available given a little time for the Dev's to develop them.

    My best friend has an S3, and I'm using my recently acquired MAXX HD. I've used his phone. Sure the display is nice enough, but most calls are lower in quality/sound, and the biggy..... His battery life sucks. He has to charge his S3 every single night. I charge my MAXX HD once every 3rd night.

    Do you guys enjoy the soft keys on the screen? That seems to bother me a bit. Idk.

    I love the soft keys on the screen! I wore out my soft keys on the x2, so, less to repair I think!

    I've had a RAZR maxx and now have the s3. IMO the s3 is superior in every way except battery life of course. S3 has a decent battery too though. I get 12-18 hours of heavy use.

    I looked at both when I was shopping for my upgrade and I liked the Maxx HD better. Better battery, better CPU, better radio and better build quality. The camera on the GS3 is light years ahead of the Maxx tho but that's the only real drawback along with a slightly smaller screen but the Maxx still comes out on top IMO.

    Not exactly the comparison the OP was asking for. He wanted to know the pros and cons of the S3 vs. the RAZR MAXX HD, NOT the RAZR MAXX. And no, they're not the same phone.

    Yup. The HD has a better and faster processor and better screen. It's a much better phone. It was my 2nd choice behind my beloved Note 2.
