My history of phones Original Moto Droid iPhone 4 Samsung Galaxy Nexus Moto Razr Maxx HD Let me say this Razr HD is easily the best phone i ever had. I am very surprised with the huge difference between it and the Galaxy Nexus I was using. The specific items I immediately noticed (keep in mind same carrier so only thing that changed was the phone). 1. Speaker is way better, i hated the speaker on the Nexus (volume too low). 2. Reception is better, I am surprised to see that in areas i had spotty coverage are now not an issue. 3. The screen is fantastic. I am amazed, i expected the screen to be about the same as the Nexus, but not even close, i don't know why, i thought they both used the same screen technology and same resolution. 4. Of course the battery, i couldn't go 1 day with Nexus and last night it was at 54% after a full day of use (Maxx is the way to go, other manufacturers should take note). 5. Voice quality is way better, I forgot how good Moto is with the actual phone part! 6. Build quality of course is way better as well, i like the kevlar backing. The fit and finish are great and no plastic. 7. I like the new motoblur skin. light weight and I actually like most of the changes. Just had to share, i upgraded to get the great battery life, didn't expect the additional improvements.
