    I sure hope it can go the distance without developing the horrible lag that has made me absolutely hate the RAZR MAXX. I can't wait to get rid of this phone. I was supposed to have a Droid MAXX here today but found out that it was backordered by Verizon.
    I had the RAZR MAXX for about a year and a half, then passed it on to my son. It never had or has a problem with lag. Its not as snappy as the MAXX, but better than my wife's S4.

    I wonder what is causing the trouble with yours...

    I've had mine replaced due to horrible lag and the new one does it too.

    It's so bad at times that I can't even answer the phone. It rings, but the controls to answer never come up. Last phone did the same thing. The phone just sucks.

    I'm having difficulty just trying to post this reply. I hate this phone.

    That is the problem that I'm having with my Droid 4. I've had it almost 2 years now. It was fine for a very long time but in the last couple of months it's really been lagging. Doesn't sound quite a bad as your Razr but there are times when I try to do a Google search or use other apps I will give up and will try again later. Phone calls are becoming more frustrating because the icons don't alway respond.

    Just bought a MAXX for my personal phone, replacing my GNex. I'm very impressed so far - I've had it a week.

    We have about 200 RAZR MAXX HDs at work and I just setup 19 MAXX devices a couple weeks ago to transition to. The MAXX is much snappier and the battery just doesn't want to run out. Recommended.

    Root and install CM11. I've got Kit Kat on my Razr Maxx and it is lag free.

    Yes and yes again! I went to verizon in a similar frame of mind. For me it was iPhone 5s, note 3, or maxx. Went with the Droid Maxx and I love it! Feature packed, smooth, and killer battery life. Its a little better than my wife's s4, and I love wireless charging on this thing. Touchless controls is pretty sweet too.

    Soooo many better choices than the Max. Sooo many better choices.
    I just signed up for service through VZW last Friday and was on the fence about it. Was deciding between the iPhone 5S, Droid Maxx and S4. I noticed today that the S4 and Droid Maxx have both had their price reduced to $99! I bought a 32GB 5S for $300.

    I'm rethinking my decision now, if for no other reason than to save myself some cash. I like the screen/ size on the S4 but love the battery and built in storage capacity on the Maxx.

    For you Droid Maxx owners, would you still recommend the Maxx or would you pass on it for a difference device?

    Moto X, LG G2 and of course the N5 or 5S. Or just wait a few weeks for the S5 if you want a huge battery. All of these are light years ahead of the Maxx.

    How is the Moto X in particular, light-years ahead of the Maxx?

    Not that any of the other phones you listed are either, but to argue that the Moto X is, is just plain ridiculous, as it's basically the same hardware internally speaking, including the camera, which is actually better than it gets credit for in my opinion.

    Buyers remorse is when you're unhappy with your decision to buy an item after the sale. Clearly, JimBen73 is happy with his Maxx. Perhaps you were thinking of confirmation bias??

    Um, OK.

    Maxx is dated, crappy camera, much better options available right now.
    Maybe this conversation isn't about the phone...

    I got the DROID MAXX as an insurance replacement for the RAZR MAXX HD. I completely agree about the lag. The lag on the RAZR MAXX was really awful. The DROID MAXX is really no comparison. This is the smoothest, fastest phone I've ever used. It's feature rich, but even better than that the features are thoughtfully implemented, not just piled on for the sake of piling on. It's much preferable to my wife's iPhone 5s. And don't get me wrong. I love Apple products. This phone is just better.

    I'm trying to decide between the Maxx and the Note 3. I also have a Razr Maxx HD with the horrible lag. It was great up until recently, and then all of a sudden, lag. I think they purposely do this to make you upgrade. The problem is, I have a pioneer App Radio 2 in my car, and I use ARLiberator so that it mirrors my phone on the radio. It uses the hdmi port of the phone. I can also use mhl but the Maxx has neither. I'd like to try using screencast for a totally wireless solution, but I don't want to buy a phone and find out that it won't work and that my App Radio is now useless. I just love the build quality and signal that Moto phones have...

    I've had the S4 and the LG G2 and now have the Maxx . I'm on Verizon like most of you so no N5 and no S5 (because I like actual smart phones). The Maxx is the best phone on the market right now. With active notifications, voice controls, great battery and quick updates(Kitkat). There is no way that anyone could pick against the Maxx if you have not owned one.

    So wait, you're admitting it's an awesome phone but you don't recommend it? Why wouldn't you recommend an awesome phone?

    I've had both and I consider the Droid Maxx to be superior in every way to the RAZR Maxx HD. Better performance, screen, battery, Active Notifications, call quality. You name it the phone is better.

    Except the build quality. The RAZR HD was made far better. No creaks, gaps, nothing. Maybe Motorola will go back to this type of build quality with the next Droid.
