    Motorola clearly is capable of better, as shown with the Atrix HD and it's gorgeous display.

    I can see the AMOLED matrix from arms length. Unacceptable. Also, you'd think with the screen blotch issue, they'd cut ties with Samsung.

    Also, the regular RAZR got a battery boost...I was seriously hoping for a 3500+ battery. Also, why come out with phone at speed as the other big guys...and ICS!?!?!

    "Leapfrog" should be tossed around once and a while...

    I've put up with substandard screens to have superior connectivity...getting annoyed now.

    HTC IPS-LCD > *

    The next Nexus device better not be made by Samsung...and it better not be AMOLED!
    HTC makes LCD panels now?

    How will you not. Isn't the buy back paying you for your phone, then you pay full price for the new one?

    A MAXX on Craiglslist is ~$300, whats Best Buy giving you?

    What's the magnification on those shots? It just seems to me that the marked difference between screens is only when you hold the screen right up to your eyeball. My old geezer eyes (ok, I'm just 42) are starting to have some difficulty focusing on things up close anyway, so the benefits are somewhat lost on me ...

    You know how a dead pixel sort of stands out at you? AMOLED is that way to me. I can see 'general grainyness' easily at arms length on the Galaxy S3. SLCD is simply a more accurate, higher clarity choice for phone displays.

    If I didn't see it, I wouldn't care. But for how easily I notice it, I can't imagine no one else does. If you can A-B compare a S3 (AMOLED) & One X/EVO LTE (SLCD) and say that the One X/EVO LTE doesn't look considerably clearer, I'd be very surprised.

    SLCD is simply better than AMOLED, and to choose an inferior display is disappointing.

    I admit other displays are better but AMOLED looks fine and I'm extremely picky. I don't care what my screen looks like if the battery isn't powerful enough to power the device on all day on its initial charge.

    I understand, but fortunately it doesn't bother me. I kind of feel bad for you--it's almost a curse to notice it so readily, and not be satisfied unless it's almost perfect. I imagine it's like someone who has perfect pitch listening to a singing group that's just a little out of tune. Anyway, I imagine that the complexities of why a company chooses one component over another is so multifactorial and convoluted that the final decision is more than just, "Well heck, let's just pick the inferior one." Economics must be a big factor, because Moto is not the big dog--that's Samsung.

    If you build a quality device with quality components, people will pay for it. Look at the iPhone. It's a premium product at a premium price. The RAZR is supposed to be a premium product.

    I think the razr HD is what the OG razr should have been. If I was on Verizon and had an upgrade it would probably be between the razr HD, or note 2 if it came to Verizon or any new nexus device announced before the HD drops.

    I'm not arguing with you--I understand that you feel that the AMOLED screens are inferior, but I think you're in the fairly small minority of people who see this as a significant problem, because you're the visual analog of someone with perfect pitch. Personally, I think the Maxx is a premium product the way it is. When I look at the iPhone, I see a premium product as well, but one that is also overblown with hype and blind allegiance. When I see how small my wife's iPhone 4S's screen is compared to the Maxx's, I just don't see the advantage of the retina display.

    But really, your point is well taken. Hopefully, Moto will thrive under Google and develop the resources to make future phones with the absolute best components.

    The least likely of those wishes is the SDcard slot, but the rest is plausible .

    Think I'll just sit around and wait for a Super LCD2 HD with THX on a 3300mah battery. Ya, that'll happen :-)

    I really need to look into buying my phones from Best Buy and purchasing that buy back plan. How much is it on a $650 device?

    So here is my question for your opinions....
    I am a 'simple' user: I don't root my phones, I barely use 1GB of data a month, I mostly just talk, text, camera, play a few games, and access facebook, the internet and this forum. I am eligible for an upgrade and had pretty much made up my mind to go with the Razr Maxx (mostly for the battery and the feedback I got on call quality). But now knowing the Maxx HD will be coming hopefully sometime within the next couple months, I find myself in the dilemma of whether I should still go with the Maxx or wait for the Maxx HD.

    So, looking for your opinions - Are the differences between the two worth the anticipated $100 price difference and the wait for the Maxx HD release based on what I use my phone
    for?

    Thanks.

    MAXX HD all the way. The phone is much quicker and is more efficient on battery power. The display is much better as well. It is a more future proof option and will be a better choice overall. 100 dollars over 2 years of owning the phone is very little per month. It is completely worth it. Get the HD.
