Should I upgrade from DINC to the RAZR or wait for the MAXX or neither?

    Looking for experienced and knowledgeable thoughts. I like my Incredible, but like the thinner RAZR. Is the battery life better on the RAZR compared to the DINC? I know the MAXX is way better - but more money and out of stock.

    Thanks for any advice! :)

    I don't have any experience with the DINC, but had the X and the Razr.

    The Razr's battery is satisfactory IMO, especially is you use Smart Actions properly. However, nothing can beat the Maxx. Just use and abuse it as you want. I wouldn't worry about the Maxx being shown out of stock either -- most people seem to get them fairly quickly after placing their order.

    If you learn how to set your RAZR, and look around here, you can get the battery on the RAZR to last just as long as the MAXX.

    I have been reading about that a little bit. Seems that there is some possibility there.

    That's true but if you get the MAXX and just set a few Smart Actions, you can set it and forget it. The battery on this baby would last at a good 15-20 hours easily without a charge. I'm just saying! :)

    How does the RAZR battery compare in real life usage with the DINC?

    Not to sound stupid but what's a DINC? Is this a new phone by Verizon?

    Lol, oh okay. Maybe you should go to Verizon and do a test drive and get the feel of all of them.

    I had the dinc with the extended battery. The razr isn't nearly as bad as some posts would have you believe. I get almost the same time out of my razr as I did with the dinc. The razr battery is definitely better than the stock dinc battery. I also got the razr because of cost. I originally had the galaxy nexus but returned it cause of the cost.

    I just have the stock Dinc battery and it doesn't always last the entire day. Does your RAZR last the day under medium usage?

    I have the MAXX but I would say yes. The RAZR is an awesome phone. Excellent choice in my opinion.

    I have the MAXX and it certianly does last. I had the RAZR before this and if I pushed it, I could deplete the battery in about 6-7 hours. However, I repeated got 17 -20 hours easily on the Razr with moderate use. My wife has the Razr and is a low usage person. At this moment she is unplugged for 15 hours and is at 52% battery remaining.

    Where I work there isn't the best signal, so its about 6 hours before I'm at around 30%. At home tho I can go at least 10 hours. I wasn't even a fan of Motorola before I got the razr. I can tell you with all honesty that I am completely happy with my razr.
