In the end, you have to do whats right for YOU. I think the GS3 is a fantastic phone. What I have found that I look for in a phone is build quality, interface and dependability. I feel that the Razr HD will do that for ME over the GS3. The battery is actually pretty damn good on the GS3. I don't think the MAXX HD is necessary, the Razr HD is only about 7500MAh less than the MAXX HD. I'll definitely post my own review if it would be helpful. I'm excited either way.
