    Considering its down to RAZR Maxx HD and Gs3 for me, is there really a point in me waiting for the Maxx HD? It sounds to me like the only true advantage is the battery life...and I only use my phone fairly heavily for two or three hours our of the day. So its not that big of a factor.

    There is.

    DO you want your battery to last ridiculously long? Go with the MAXX as it has no peer in the mobile phone arena.


    Do you hate stock Android? Go with the Galaxy since it's got Touchwiz.

    Do you want the best reception? Go with the Motorola, they are untouchable.

    Do you hate PenTile/want a TRUE HD phone? Go with the Galaxy.

    Do you want timely updates? Skip them both.

    Get the s3,the razr will be a year old phone in another month... I've got both and the s3s bigger screen,way more efficient processor and ram alone is reason enough, the replaceable battery is the icing on the cake.

    Considering my only smartphone so far has been the Droid X, its tough to say whether or not I'd like Touchwiz. What does Touchwiz add to stock android, exactly?? Also, with what we know about the Razr Maxx HD screen, how will it compare to the screen on the Gs3? Get as specific as you need to :)

    Its been really helpful coming here. Most of my friends are iPhone people (sadly), so they're the last people I can go to for advice with this. :p. So to everyone here, thank you!

    I really like The RAZR MAXX HD for the incredible battery life and durability, but the Note 2 has a 3100mAh battery as well so it's a tough call.

    I had a Samsung Droid Charge which obviously is not a GS3 by any means but switched from that to the Maxx. The switch was night and day for me. Call quality, signal strength, bluetooth & data connections, build, hdmi out. The battery was just icing on the cake. Everything about this phone is so much better than what Samsung builds. The Samsung Nexus radio issues only further supported my opinions on Motorola. The fact that your even questioning a GS3 means you should at least wait a while longer so you can test both and be sure. I would no doubt go Moto if I could get it without loosing my unlimited data, but because I would, I am very content with this Maxx for years to come.

    Considering I'd be coming from a Droid X, I have a decent understanding of what to expect from Motorola. That being said, my experience with Samsung is non-existent, and I didn't want to throw the Gs3 out just because it wasn't Motorola. Honestly, if it came down to the Razr Maxx and Gs3, I'd go with Samsung for its longevity. But the Razr Maxx HD is a whole different phone...and its only downside at this point is the 1 GB of RAM difference. And the camera. I'm just curious as to whether or not that extra 1 GB would make a huge difference with everyday tasks.

    I've had pretty much every different phone maker(on Verizon at least).

    And by far motorola gather best build quality and radios/reception of them all.

    I have an HTC rezound now and it's a really good phone, but I'm still going back to Motorola when the maxx hd's gets released even though I'll have to pay full retail for it.

    I'm in the same Boat! Droid X user, wife has the Rezound.

    I'm considering the S3, but kind of want to see if the Razr HD is better.

    The only 1gb of ram and average camera scare me away from Razr HD.

    But the Call Quality and Signal Strength also scare me away from the S3.

    What to do...
