    Well my son upgraded from the iphone to galaxy s3. For some reason he just wants to go back to his iphone. Now my dilemma is i have the razr maxx which i like but should i take the s 3 and sell the maxx or should i just keep my maxx. Anyone upgrade from maxx to the s 3 and if u did do u regret it or are u happy u did.

    I actually just got a S3 a few days ago and so far I'm LOVING it! Battery life hasn't been bad at all. I got 15 hours with medium to high usage the first day and yesterday I was at 65% after 10 hours of medium usage. If you already have it in your possession give it a try for a few days and see if you like it!

    Maybe it was because I came from a Droid X, but when I got the S-3 to beat the unlimited access deadline, I wasn't satisfied. The S-3 sounded great with all the hype, but it just felt awkward in my hand and I wasn't impressed by the gimmicky features like touching phones together. Small things but I took it back for the Maxx and am very comfortable with it and the extended battery life. I felt like I was going backward in some ways but of course it's all subjective, they're both great phones. Take some time to explore the S-3 and make a decision then.

    Thanks guys i played around with it a little and to be honest i like the maxx better. To me it just feels right and i just couldnt give up my maxx's battery. I really dont think i can get anything less of a battery after my maxx. The S3 is a nice phone and might have better specs but the razr maxx is just perfect. Perfect screen size, perfect battery a perfect phone. I know alot of people dont like the 299 price for the maxx but i can see why its priced this way. The s3 is 199 but the maxx at least for me is worth the 299. Gonna wait for maxx hd...Well i just returned the s3. Thanks everyone for the advice.

    Sell the s3 on ebay since it's still new you can get top dollar for it probably

    I had a $299 Samsung Nexus when it came out. Couldn't get it to work right so Verizon let me swap it for a $299 Razr Maxx. I see that now the Nexus is $99 while the Razr Maxx is still $299. That says a lot about the Razr.
