    Next Friday will be payday for me and I'm looking at purchasing a new Android phone, I've used Android devices since the release of the HTC Dream/G1. I've been doing some research and have narrowed my choices down to the Motorola Razr line of devices. Currently I'm looking at either the Droid Razr M or Droid Razr HD. They appear to be the same phone except for the display size, battery life and internal storage size. I guess it all comes down to which one feels better in my hand.

    Have always been an HTC person myself, but my next one will be Samsung Note 2 or maybe even the Note 3 if it is out for my renewal in April

    I think that would be a little too big for me.

    UPDATE: Well, I ended up buying the Motorola Droid Razr HD. I paid $20 for it after trading in my iPhone 4S so I couldn't pass up a deal like that. This is a very nice phone.. probably the nicest android device I've ever owned.

    I am hoping that Motorola will get better at releasing their high end handsets in Europe. I've owned a couple of moto dumbphones and found the reliability and radios very good.

    And they have the right idea about batteries - if you are going to make it fixed, use the freedom that gives you in the design to add capacity rather than to shave a mm off the thickness.

    I agree completely.. this "thinnist phone" idea is silly. I've been saying it for years; "make the phone thicker and use the extra space for a beefier battery".
