    21 hours of talk time and ICS "coming soon" might be enough to make me give up my Gnex. Can't wait for some reviews to verify on Verizons LTE network.

    What's the processor powering this? the same OMAP4430 in Razr? Then I'm not so interested. MWC will show more interesting devices I guess.

    I compared both spec sheets (razr vs. Maxx) and the only differences that I can see are:

    1. battery size
    2. thickness
    Same processor, same memory, same screen, same everything else.....

    You forgot higher HD resolution screen. That's why I was curious on the processor in it. It needs better one than OMAP 4430.

    So how long will it take to recharge a 3300 mah battery?

    Some of the hand's on articles from last night are confirming it's the same phone other than the bigger battery.

    If that is it, $100 more for 2 year is nuts.

    Essentially you are paying for an extra battery. I don't understand why they jus didn't come out with it like this from the beginning. Almost seems like a scheme.

    If you think this is bad, wait a few months and watch the Razr Maxx2 come out with ICS preinstalled and a removable battery. Unfortunately, that's the road we travel going with android.

    As far as I'm concerned, this is the first 4G phone that should be able to handle being run 100% of the time AS A 4G PHONE! As all of us who own 4G phones know, battery drain is a constant headache, and has contributed to the endless posts regarding battery management. The heart of any phone is it's battery, and it is a shame that many of us have to throttle back our phones just to be able to enjoy them for an entire work day. Heck...most of our phones couldn't make it through watching an entire movie without being plugged into a power source. LAME. All phones have pro's and con's, but I think this beast answers the biggest beef I have with 4G phones....battery life. Props to Motorola.

    I completely agree. I have had the TBolt, Charge, Razr, and now the GNex and all have had terrible battery life. The common denominator is the 4GLTE radio is power hungry on top of poor 3G-4G hand-off issues.

    I posted this on another board: Nothing worse than a phone that can't make it a whole day. I can be at 40% by lunch with hardly any use driving to work and sitting on my desk at work. On the weekends when I will be out all day, I have to make sure I keep my phone on the charger until I literally walk out the door, put it on the charger in the car and pray I make it back to the car before it dies.

    I do it because I love my android phones but it is a major pain in the @ss. I am looking forward to real world reviews when released to see if how the extra mah holds up!

    It'll do fine, I'm sure. Given that the specs are the same as the RAZR, I have no doubt that this thing will make it all day and night at full power.

    I was going to get the original Droid Razr but something told me to wait, I didn't like the way verizon was marketing it so hard its like they wanted to ged as many sold as possible in the quickest mount of time possible.

    Could this Droid Razr Maxx be the reason why Verizon was marketing the Droid Razr so hard?

    I don't like having stuff that's very mainstream and Verizons advertisement of the original droid Razr really threw me off, now I just don't kno if when i get the Maxx tht the Droid razr 2 will come out, with an HD screen 1.5 quad core processor 13 mp camera, and supersmart actions that can read your mind

    Don't worry about it or give it a second thought. No matter what you get or when you get it, in the near future there will be something faster/quicker/bigger/more powerful or just plain more desirable than the phone you have at the time.

    But then of course, you knew that.... :)

    Best of luck to ya,

    That's true.

    What interested me most was the Razr's build quality anyways (tend to drop phone; first Android),and thts not something that can be taken away. I was going to get the Razr for $299 so i guess i'll just get the Maxx and accept the extra battery

    I think if I were you that's what I would do. I like the idea that the RZR MAXX has a 3300 mAh battery. I'm not elegible to upgrade 'til March. (Bought my "X" on launch day) I'll wait and see if any phones that "Crank my Handle" are shown at Mobile World Congress next month and make my decision then. I'd really like to hold out until the 4G LTE phones get the 2nd generation LTE radios.

    Patiently waiting for my next smart/superphone,

    I have no idea how moto gets away with this nonsense?

    First the setbacks with the Bionic, and then a few weeks later they announce the Razr...that was crazy!

    And now this with the Maxx so soon after the original Razr release...
