    so what are the differences between the razr hd and the razr hd maxx besides the batterys ? Just wondering because i was at best buy and they had the maxx hd on sale for 150, so im wondering if its worth the extra 50 for maxx.

    I upgraded my RAZR MAXX to the MAXX HD and am happy that I did. I think the display is better and the Jelly Bean implementation is excellent. I have not had a single issue with my new HD (going on 2 months).

    There was really nothing wrong with my MAXX, I just had an excellent opportunity to get a "like new" HD off of SWAPPA.COM (which I recommend for those looking for something different). Being a Systems Engineer (now retired), I am intrigued by the new technologies emerging.

    Naturally, as with everything else, your mileage may vary.

    It's a no brainer to go with the Maxx, besides a much bigger battery you get double the storage. I don't see why anyone would choose the regular HD instead of the Maxx.

    same size, all i could find is that the maxx has a better battery and a larger internal memory which is no big deal because its expandable.

    I went with the regular HD because it was $100 cheaper at the time I bought and I was on a very tight budget. Seems reasonable that others may have been in a similar situation

    If you can get the maxx - get the maxx. Both phones are good, but the battery in the maxx is insane.

    I just checked the Bestbuy.com site and it shows the Razr Maxx HD at $199, not $150.

    That's understandable

    The internal storage is important because you can't put everything on the sd card and the maxx gives you double the internal storage, that is a big deal

    I chose the Maxx HD bc of the battery life. I've had it well past 34 hours. I previously had the Droid incredible 2 which had decent battery life but could easily be killed in 6 hours. I also like the fact it has better screen resolution and better picture quality.
