So much for the S3
Returned the S3 and back to using a Razr...The S3 has horrible reception (main issue) and also the vibrate function is MUCH better on the Razr. I can barely get reception at my house with the S3. Everything is crystal clear with the Razr though. The Razr is not as fast but honestly it's fast enough for me.

I will give props to the Razr because after all it is Motorola and they have always lead the way in radios, hands down.

While I agree Motorola has the best connectivity (they should they've been in the business for years) I have to disagree with the terrible reception on the galaxy line of devices. I don't have any issues that make my device unusable although the reception won't be as good as a Motorola device.Droid 3!!!!! Insert Evil Laugh

My s3 gets great reception and has never had connectivity issues. I I'm in the middle of the Mojave desert on a new 4G network and very spotty areas when I'm out training. I never had an issue with it. I even my tbolt does ok, but when it doesn't my s3 does great. Even up against some of my soldiers Motorola and HTC and lg phones it does very well. It's funny to be standing next to someone with a different phone and they have crap reception while you have great. It may be the network, the phone or other equipment making our reception good or bad, but either way the s3 is great all around. I vote troll on this whole thread....

Re: So much for the S3
Motorola's have better reception than Samsung. Not an opinion. Fact.
I view reception above all else. The RAZR/RAZR MAXX have the best reception on Verizon.

Re: So much for the S3
RAZR/RAZR MAXX have the best reception on Verizon (where YOU are located, and in YOUR opinion). For someone else, the story may be different. Blanket statements tend to lead people to question your credibility and/or motives.

I have a Galaxy Nexus. My wife has the RAZR and my daughter has the maxx. They drop calls and lose data WAY more than I do. FACT

Apples and oranges... pick what works best for you. To me everyone claims Motorola makes the best radios but honestly I have seen no difference in any phone (and I've had a lot).
I'm sure the S3 is a great phone. Fan boys everywhere will claim it can "out do" every phone out but why?????? So it has 2 gig of ram? I have yet to ever see any need for more... RAZR runs just fine with 1 so what's the big deal?
In my experience the gnex was OK but in build quality compared to Motorola and HTC I'll pass on Samsung for now. Droid RAZR (non maxx) suits me just fine and I get a days use out of the battery. I even like the screen but sounds like the new RAZR screen is much improved.
