    The best phone available on any carrier is the one you decide to buy because it fits your own personal wants, likes and needs.

    Razr Maxx if you want long battery device or SD Card. Otherwise get the G-Nex if you want to ROM, want ICS out of the box, removable battery, or HD screen.

    I have the G-Nex, but my wife is out of contract now. I personally plan to wait, hoping for something with a Krait or A15 based SoC device with more battery efficient LTE chip before they disallow upgrades on my grandfathered unlimited data family plan.

    While I understand that I was asking for your personal opinion is all! Looking at the reasons to see what I can get out of each phone. Now while I have looked at the reviews I still like peoples personal opinions rather than a few reviews! Thats all.

    Thanks for the info Droosh! HD screen is not all that important as I dont do a ton of movies or games. Battery life is what looks good IMO. CPU for the 2 also seem to be about the same. So I guess its the life or screen eh? THanks for your reply! Very helpful.

    I have been through every phone Verizon has released in the last 6 months, and have to say that the G-Nex has easily been the best.

    Hopefully once ICS comes to the Maxx I'll be impressed enough to switch, but the current ICS Maxx roms practically ruin data connectivity.

    My short answer:
    G-Nex for now
    Maxx with ICS soon
    Galaxy S3 w/o touchwiz in the future?

    I'm in the same boat. I'm using the Rezound for now, but haven't pulled the trigger on my wife's upgrade because there isn't anything available that I feel is worth it. I also have the Bionic sitting in a drawer at the moment because my wife thinks it's too big for her. (I can't blame her, actually... I think so too!)

    I'm using the Rezound w/extended battery. Just a great phone but it's battery life stock really calls for a larger battery. Also have no problems with recommending the Droid RAZR MAXX. Best battery life available by far of any Android device. It's a unique shaped phone so I would go to store and at least try and get a feel for it in your hand.

    The Rezound, Razr Maxx and Gnex are all at the top of the list. Which one is best depends on the features you are looking for.

    And I still have my Eris.

    For me, it's the Thunderbolt! Still the only Verizon LTE phone with a native kickstand, something I use all the time and can't imagine not having (no case kickstands need apply, prefer naked ). Also, the simultaneous voice and data over both 3G and LTE is a sweet feature. As Verizon's first LTE phone, it has matured into a very stable device, one I plan on rockin for quite a while yet while waiting for a true successor.

    The reason we [won't] make a 7-inch tablet isnt because we dont want to hit [a lower] price point, Jobs said. Its because we think the screen is too small to express the software. As a software driven company, we think about the software strategies first. - again, Steve Jobs

    RAZR MAXX best Verizon phone I ever owned

    Razr Maxx. I would have loved the features offered on the Galaxy Nexus. But in my opinion, a phone can have the greatest of everything, but if the battery life blows, no thanks. If Moto releases a Razr Maxx HD with the 3300 mAh battery, it will be king.

    Hah, you would be so wrong. Like I said, the Thunderbolt has matured; battery life has improved quite a bit with the Gingerbread update last summer and subsequent OTA tweaks. With the standard battery, I get at least 24 hours (35 average) with light to moderate use, half that with heavy use. Add in that killer native kickstand and it's the best damn phone I've every owned! You'd have to pry it from my cold dead hands...

    Im in the same boat as op. getting tired of my tbolt and like the battery of razr maxx. Id also like a stronger 4g connection but from what ive heard the maxx's reception isnt great on 4g? Im also thinkung if i waited a month the price might drop again or maybe an amazing new android phone? On the other hand losing unlimited data is NOT an option for me

    I love my rezound. Never had a problem with it. so if course I am going to say the rezound. However, after I got this phone never really liked into any other.

    This thread is relevant to my interests. Still hanging on to my DInc CM7.1, but I'd like to get my unlimited data grandfathered over to a 4G account before they actually implement any plans to force upgrades into shared data. Unfortunately, there's still no LTE service in my area so I may wait a bit longer.

    I'm leaning toward the RAZR Maxx, I don't think an HD screen is that important to me but battery life is (and battery life without resorting to a brick-thick extended battery). I just wish it had a removable battery -- I tend to use phones for a long time before upgrading (see: still using DInc) and eventually that battery is going to start dying...
