    Currently a Droid X owner on Verizon (staying on network btw)...

    I'm eligible for an upgrade - and an additional loyalty upgrade come May (whatever that is) - I'm deciding between the Nexus or Maxx or even waiting longer for what's coming out the next couple months...

    I think i'm leaning Nexus but am considering waiting...

    Any word about what's due out the next month or two and is it worth hanging on until then?

    Thanks for any opinions.

    Personally i would get the Nexus or Maxx. (Maxx is a great phone, I have it and love it!!) The Moto Razr Maxx would my choice. Here is my analogy----Get your upgrade. If something else comes out you like you can buy it outright and offset your cost by selling the phone you got from your upgrade.

    I had the bionic before getting a nexus and the nexus is a lot better of a phone. The thing you want to look at is, are you going to root and mess with roms? If so, the nexus is your phone...if not the maxx is going to have a lot better battery life but who knows when ics (official) is coming for it....it basically comes down to whether or not you like to hack around on your phones....honestly these two are the best phones out and will be the best two....from what I'm hearing about upcoming quad-cores there's no reason in getting one until they let the software catch up

    I've yet to even root my Droid X.. and that was another consideration.. to root my X and wait a little longer to see what comes out for the Summer season.

    Yea...I had a X also...had it rooted, I will say the nexus is much easier to mess around with because of the unlocked boot loader, I actually considered the maxx but I seen motos update for the X made it non root able and that you can go backwards....it made me think moto is going to start that on all devices which sucks cause I really like the quality of their phones...it made me have to leave them though

    I'm In the same boat. Gotta make a decision today. I'm really loving the nexus. Im coming from a tbolt so I really want the most dev support. The display looks crazy good on the nexus. I haven't really played with the razr too much. My main things are root, tether(just as an emergency backup) HDMI, removable battery, speed4G!!!!
    I really need a solid data connection as well!!!! That's really the most important. My tbolt is horrid

    If Dev support is what you want, it would simply be stupid to buy anything other than the Nexus.

    If that's the case, I think the Rezound has proven to have the most solid data connection out of all the LTE phones. Some will argue that their Razr or Gnex or whatever hasn't had any issues. And while that's likely true (as geography plays a part as well), you'll find a LOT less Rezound users complaining about connectivity problems than any other phone - myself included, and I've had all of them but the Maxx.

    amen to that!

    Trying out the Gnex again and really enjoying what's developed in the past few months (I had one right when it came out when not much was going on).

    Ex DX owner. Moved onto the Galaxy Nexus. Thought about the Maxx but I prefer unlocked devices.

    I have the nexus and love it for all the mods. Also love ics but with that said I've had trouble with the 3-4g pass off and Mic going out (that might be fixed with a replacement but been lazy). I would get the maxx or rezound if I had a chance.. The Max for battery life and good radios.. The rezound for the camera and seems to have little complaints

    Sounds like you need a Rezound.


    Honestly though between the Nexus and the Maxx id get the Maxx. I just like it better. However the reason I didnt get the Maxx was because I think its too expensive and I dont like how wide the Moto phones are. I got a Rezound and I really like it. I felt it had more to offer then the Nexus and I couldn't pass on the price I got it for.

    Plus just take a look at any FS thread and count how many Nexus are in there, Theres gotta be a reason for that Id imagine.

    If the maxx had a removable battery, it make my decision easier. Especially since it'll get ICS.
    I think no matter which one I have, I'm gonna want the other one, like a spoiled brat lol.
    Im sure the Nexus will keep me happy for at least a year, right?

    I somewhat understand the reason for needing a removable battery, but I think more of a deal is made out of it then needs be. I believe these phones have hard reset buttons on them so you don't need to pull the battery. Also I don't think I could ever wear out a battery in one of these phones and even if I did by that time I'm sure Id be long overdue for an upgrade.

    Battery removal is not necessary. There are combo buttons to push to get these phones to hard reset.

    Another point.....look at the iPhone and its success. Give credit where credit is due
