I came to the maxx after the g-nexus battery life is a must have i don't have to worry about charging unless I'm tethering those external battery packs suck *** such a waist of money good luck in your choice
If it was only a hundred dollar difference I would say go with the MAXX, but two hundred is kinda steep. I get nice battery life with the RAZR, Smart Actions help out alot. And besides the big battery, they're the same phone. Guess it depends on how much you need the extra battery life vs how much you're trying to spend.
To be honest, because these phone do not have removable batteries to me the maxx is the only way to go. On other phones you could just buy another battery as a backup but to me after seeing just how good the maxx battery is I would never go back to a phone that did not have a similar size battery. The other day I was at 42 HOURS with 15% left with out smart actions! I mean holy crap that is awesome and the screen on time was almost 8 hours. That is not even close to possible with other phones and if you add smart actions to the maxx your going to be glad you spent the extra money.
