That's what you are hearing in the RAZR forum. I'm sure hardcore samsung guys would say different. Mostly it comes down to personal taste. One isn't way better than the other and I'm sure they both have their strengths and weaknesses. One reason I've been a Motorola fan for so long is the quality. Lift a RAZR and then an s3, just the weight well tell you something. The Samsung feels like a toy to me. Also Motorola devices look better in my opinion a little more manly.
