    Is it just for gamers and people that notoriously forget to plug in their phones for the night? The difference between standard HD and Maxx is only $50 on wirefly, so if there is a compelling argument for the Maxx I'd go for it.

    The razr HD with S4 chipset and 2530 MAH battery should technically last just as long if not longer on battery compared to the original razr Maxx. So if you're not a gamer and plan to store your photos and music on micro sd card, is there a reason to go for the Maxx?

    You just can't go wrong with larger battery. Especially when it's only $199.

    I have to pay cash to keep my unlimited data :( after the disappointing thunderbolt battery i will opt for maxx hd. Besides I drive a truck and if the truck breaks and I can't charge phone I need to be able to depend on a long battery life.

    Even with the MAXX HD you are going to want to charge it every night, I doubt you could get through 2 full days of normal use.

    True, I will pay the extra for the longer battery life. I plug it in daily, but better safe than sorry. Once you buy you can't just upgrade the battery.

    I had the razr and now have the maxx, big difference not having to worry about usage bad habits, screen brightness? No worries. Screen time out? No worries. Etc. Just use and abuse ALL DAY LONG.
    And I like the feel of the heavier, thicker phone.

    It's fairly light. I just got back from the store. In pictures you can see the difference in thickness. In person, the difference in negligible and you can hardly tell the difference holding both in your hand. I think I'm going to go for it because I'll have to keep it for 2 years. Since batteries degrade over time and this one can not be replaced, I'll have a higher margin for error down the road with the Max as opposed to the regular HD.

    I know you probably couldn't test much, but I also know you're very curious as well... so I'll ask, how was reception? :)

    Reception was great. I returned the M just due to that reason. When both were on the desk, both had signal around -77. When picked up, the M dropped to -88, while the Maxx HD only dropped to -79. Hardly a drop at all and I was gripping it too, just to make sure.
