    The thing i like about this debate is that there really is no clear winner. They all have strengths and weaknesses. And with a whole hoard of really great phones, manufacturers are going to have to work that much harder to stay competitive. that means we have even better things to come! The only downside is whatever you choose, I'm sure 3 months later there will be something new shiny and exciting getting our attention

    No I haven't I received the notification about 3 days ago but haven't taken lol. I'll do it today cuz that was my concern, was the radio update in it. If it wasn't it was of no use to me, didn't care about the remote diagnostic stuff, etc.

    Yeah if apple doesn't keep running around sueing ppl for stupid stuff like "rounded corners" I'm mean really? That's like Firestone suing Mitchellin cuz they have white walls also, smdh

    Previously to the update I installed the new radio from xda-developers site because of the signal issues. I was ready to get rid of it and go back to my Maxx. Luckily I stumbled on the updated radio that solved all the problems. Then the update came out and I could not upgrade to it because I had installed the new radio and that was making it fail. I reverted back to the original radio and then took the update and "voila" the new radio was in it. It should help you immensely

    Are the radios undoubtedly better with the Motorola line vs Gs3? Or is it pretty close?? Because if the only clear advantage of the HD Maxx is the battery, then ill probably go for Galaxy s3 if not for the fact that it has better longevity (more RAM...replaceable battery...better camera....etc).

    I'm actually due for an upgrade as well and considering my options. I've never been a huge fan of Samsung but I find the S3 compelling. In the end though I'm leaning Motorola for my next upgrade. I'm kind of holding out for the holidays though to see if they'll run some deals to get me some extra data since I'll have to ditch my unlimited plan. By then all the upcoming devices should be available too, including the rumored Droid Incredible X and possibly a new Nexus(Nexuses?). Either way though waiting is probably the best bet. Unless you're dead set on the S3 for your next device. Still, since you have to live with your choice for the next two years it might be worth a wait.

    You do not need to be rooted to update the radio. It's done through "odin". Odin is a program like RSD Lite that Moto uses.
