    That's flippin' sweet. I'll bet Apple will want to sue because of the metallic edges. But hey, there's no way that it could ever be mistaken for an iPhone because THE BATTERY LASTS UP TO 32 FREAKIN HOURS.

    Unless I missed it, I'm curious as to why Motorola isn't saying how much capacity the battery is. The original Maxx is 3300 but I assume this has to be even bigger to allow the HD screen so much battery.

    Engadget says it's still 3300 mAh. I think it's supposed to last longer because the new processor is more energy efficient, which probably offsets the increased energy usage of the HD screen.

    I for one, am very happy with my current RAZR MAXX and can't see any reason for upgrading just yet. The RAZR series should receive Jelly Bean sometime soon, that'll help my itch for getting a new device. My upgrade is coming in May and I'm looking at 5"+ devices.

    I still love my Maxx, and wouldn't upgrade any time soon either. But tech lust is always a reason to upgrade--not necessarily the best reason, but still a reason!

    5" devices have nice looking screens, but I imagine they'd start to get too bulky to slip into the pants pocket. "Is that your phone, or are you just glad to see me with that big flat rectangular package?"

    Agreed. I've LOVED my Maxx experience, but I think i'll seriously look at the Note 2 if it's available on Verizon. Either way, I think I am ready to try a non Motorola device. I'll probably go with Samsung.

    Do it before Apple forces Samsung to make trapezoidal or star-shaped phones.

    I'd do it, but Motorola signal strength and battery life is unmatched by any other cellular manufacturer.

    I guess its all about the HD screen and superior processor. I'm a tech junkie so I go nuts for this.

    Not too crazy about Maxx HD. If it had 5" screen, maybe. Besides, I just got my Maxx couple of months ago and I usually wait until my upgrade is available since new phones are coming out all the time and it's impossible to "keep up". Now if only they can come up with Maxx like phone (big screen, big battery) with Blackberry keyboards....

    I said I wouldn't upgrade until I'm due but now that a new contract means the loss of unlimited data I don't worry about it.

    full price is way to much for what I'd be getting. my maxx is still the best. and whenwe finally get LTE here, it'll be like having a new phone. maxx continues to trip my trigger on a daily basis. no HD for me.

    AMOLED SUCKS!! AMOLED SUCKS!! AMOLED SUCKS!! AMOLED SUCKS!! AMOLED SUCKS!! AMOLED SUCKS!! AMOLED SUCKS!! AMOLED SUCKS!!

    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.

    The next Nexus device better not be made by Samsung...and it better not be AMOLED!

    Super AMOLED is beautiful. It's in the eye of the beholder.

    Will be buying retail to keep unlimited. i know the specs are not revolutionary but just to have a device with that battery is enough.

    Those splotches don't bother me at all on a phone nor do I notice them normally. If my Samsung LED television had those than we would have an issue.

    Also, does anyone know who makes the OLED display on the PlayStation Vita? I assume Sony does as it's their device but it has the same splotches that the RAZR has.

    Is up to 32 hours of mixed use time seriously not enough? If you make the battery bigger with the mainstream battery tech we have today, it would make the phone bulkier and heavier.

    I'm happy with my GS3, but I would have been tempted to buy this if it came out earlier this year, like June. I'm buying all my phones full retail as well, to keep my unlimited data. In my opinion, the advantages the Razr Maxx HD would have over the GS3 are the dedicated hdmi port, Motorola's radios (even though the GS3 has good radios), the stock 3300 mah battery, and the near-Nexus skin. It's a worthy competitor indeed, and it might be upgraded to Jellybean before the GS3

    What do you think?

    Default Re: RAZR Maxx HD - Whos jumping to it?!

    Honestly, I'd seriously, seriously consider it if it looked a bit cooler/sleeker.

    Oh and re: screen tech, sure, it looks great, and yes, my GN has a blotch that's hard to ignore in pitch black darkness, but I would prefer One X type tech.

    Sounds like me except not that high. My goal is 25GB. I hit 17GB last month from netflix and slacker.

    I probably won't be upgrading, not enough for me to upgrade. I love my Maxx now. And I know I'll be buying retail so I don't lose unlimited. I travel too much and use netflix and slacker too much to lose it. Hotel Wifi is just unstable and slow.
