    I WAS a huge moto fanboy. Motorola's are all I've ever bought and used... I was inline for this phone, if it had been released this summer it would be in my hands now... but its apparently not meant to be...

    Maybe the Moto nexus... but this should be an awesome device for customers...:)

    After having played with the Droid RAZR M, I am even more excited by these phones. The quality of the device and the way it was optimized for battery efficiency just blew me away. I can't wait to see the higher end models.

    Agree, if the RAZR M blew me away the HD should really deliver the goods. My opinion of course :)

    I, too, was a huge Droid fan...and if this had come out when the SGS3 did, back in the summer when I needed to upgrade to keep my unliimited data, I would have gone for it. But as it is, I'm very happy with my Galaxy S3, and am even waiting for the Note 2 now. I realized that what I wanted most out of a phone was the biggest screen available...and soon that will be the Note 2 on Verizon...yay!

    why the non-interest? Seems like a decent enough phone.

    What does it not do that it should?

    for me, with the maxx HD battery performance (assumed), I see non-removable battery a minor issue. I'm not pulling the battery out of my thunderbolt on a regular basis, as a gauge.

    What applications/functions exist that make utilize the quad-core? I'm fairly quad-core unaware.

    This was the phone I was originally going to get, but the more I hear about the Note II the more I want that instead of the MAXX HD. Samsung appears to be the only one making significant advances in features and hardware, there are so many features about the Note II that just "make sense", and will surely make it a better experience.

    Too bad Samsungs have the worst radios of any manufacturer I have ever tried. I tried both the Nexus and the S3 and sold them both due to the same horrible reception. I seriously doubt the Note will be much different.

    No interest because.....
    Most folks bought a Razr/Razr Maxx in the last year. Can't get another device unless you pay full retail.
    People that have an upgrade must pay full price if they don't want to go off unlimited.
    Bad upgrade policies mean lower interest.

    So, if I open up a new account with big red and get it for $299 then cancel and pay the ETF which is $300 that would save me a couple hundred dollars. Hmmm, what if I get it at Costco? Or Amazon? Might be cheaper.

    not quite, if you cancel within thirty days they charge you the full retail price, so you have to pay for one month of service. at least I'm pretty sure that how it goes.

    I think it is more than "decent enough". I'm sure it will be a great phone and I am still going to consider it. I was definitely planning to buy the HD Maxx before hearing about the Note 2 and still might. In answer to what it is missing, the quad core is nice and I'd prefer a removable battery but neither are dealbreakers for me. What I really want is a big screen. I was happy when I heard the HD Maxx was 4.7 inches but less so after finding out some of the screen is used for the on screen buttons, effectively making it smaller. I'm not sure it will look bigger than the 4.3 inch screen in the original Razr Maxx. If the HD Maxx did not have the on screen buttons I'd have chosen it. Now once I see the HD Maxx and Note 2 side by side I'll have my answer.
