Default any advantages from the razr maxx over the m?

ok seriously, are there any advantages to the og razr, razr maxx or (other than the screen) to the maxx hd over the M? According to the reviews the M has the same hardware specs as the maxx hd! so am I right assuming that unless you just want a bigger phone there is no advantage to having the maxx or maxx hd?

I believe there is more internal storage on the Maxx and Maxx HD, and obviously the larger battery in those two. But otherwise no, since you excluded the screen.

There will be a few unknowns, like signal strength, that may or may not be better or worse. But since they're unknowns, it's kinda pointless to bring 'em up I guess.

The M does have the same processor, and GPU I am sure. With the smaller screen, the capacity in the battery won't matter as much, and perfomance may actually be better on the M, since less pixels to move. Considering it has an SD card slot, the screen should be the major consideration... (I however, want a big screen )

I have noticed a slightly weaker signal strength with the m but as far as battery life i go about 16 hours with moderate use and still have 30-40% so i couldn't be happier! Awesome phone!

No HDMI out on the M. Aside from the increased storage in the RAZR/MAXX, I noticed the M has a much weaker signal than the RAZR/MAXX. whereas I might lose 10 to20% battery in 12 hours with the MAXX, I was losing 50 to 70% battery with the M. Signal was about-20dbm less than the MAXX when side by side. Both were running same apps except for the MAXX. I was running fancy widgets on the MAXX.

Not so much on the processor.

RAZR and Maxx, TI OMAP 4430, RAZR M, Qualcomm S4.

I think he was referring to the RAZR/MAXX HD versions.

Ive only dropped 4g once since ive had the M and that was inside the Allstate Arena(large venue/sports arena in Chicago). Im usually 112-98dBm when at home and slightly better when outside. Im not a real heavy user and only lose 30-40% in 12 hours

2nd, is this the same chris4x4 from TW.com? your dogs look very familiar...
