Wednesday Poll: Are You Buying Any of Motorola’s New RAZR Devices?

Now that the DROID RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD, and RAZR M are official, we have to as, “Are you buying one of them?” We know that many of you have been patiently waiting for Motorola to drop these phones, in hopes that they were game changes. Whether they are or not is still to be debated, but after looking at the mixed reactions to them in the comments of a variety of posts, we’d love to get a feel for the numbers, when it comes to you considering one. Are any of these your next smartphone?

Are You Buying Any of Motorola's New RAZR Devices?

  • I and a family member would have *definitely* each picked up the Razr HD Maxx if it had come out MONTHS ago.

  • Amit

    Will never any more since it doesnt provide good support !!!!
    I’ve been a freak of MOTO since last five years but is done for me now….
    Why my Atrix is not getting JB !!!

  • fard

    Nah, I already purchased the RAZR less than a year ago. Even if I did have the money, I’d still hold off and wait for the next version that – hopefully – will have better hardware (a CPU with freq.>1.5gHz, and more RAM).

  • razr guy

    droid razr maxx was cray, so the maxx hd will blow people away (especially the fools with an ifail 5)

  • I . Want. MOTO-NEXUS. No! Bad Motorola bad! Go back in your doggy house until you can bring the bacon to the family dinner table. Enough of these multirelease/we’re all the same phone/but kind of different/ but also the same bulls***. Android users have been very vocal this last year or so and the consensus out: We want a Nexus device ON VERIZON too by motorola. We don’t care if you have to send a bunch of ex-cons with tazers to make big red an offer it can’t refuse, or whatever. We’re sick of blur! Give us OG Droid like tastiness again! Heck I don’t even care if you call it a nexus or not. Call it a google experience device, a vanilla phone by moto… whatever.

    Ever since I switch to android I see the same thing happen when I buy a new phone. I settle. WHy? Because I originally switched because I want a vanilla device. Lol I’m still waiting for moto to give me one thats not 4 years old and only on that other carrier.

    From tbolt, to bionic, to razr I’ve been wanting that vanilla experience in a quality build. No samsung , sorry to say that was not them. It’s gotta be moto or bust!

  • amar

    Would definitely buy if they were on at&t.

  • RussyJo

    So besides (probably) being about $50 cheaper than the MAXX, can someone please tell me what the point of Motorola even bothering to develope the regular RAZR HD? If the RAZR M is the price-efficient model then who is Moto aiming the RAZR HD at???

    • chris125

      those who want good battery in a thinner package. Same reason for razr and maxx

  • bogy25

    Really … not buying? I’m getting the MAXX HD – phone is awesome!

  • bibliorun

    If this was T-Mobile ready, I would really consider the RAZR Maxx HD

  • DanWazz

    If I was in the market fr a new phone, the MAXX HD would be a contender, but not a very strong one.

  • jak_341

    You can’t go wrong with Samsung! Waiting for the GNex 2!

    • LiterofCola

      I lol’d

  • Knlegend1

    Only if the Nexus fails in appearance lol.

  • ChrisTraeger1

    lol no

  • jaydub

    lol… no I won’t be buying any of them haha

  • g_what

    I have the GNex. Not buying a new phone until the next Nexus.

  • Where are the keyboards?

  • Usually Motorola releases different models of the same phone in 4 month intervals. This time, it’s all at once. I see Google has really changed the way they do business. Let’s watch as they fail to support these devices as well.

    • nhizzat

      Like the Galaxy Nexus? Still no mention of an official OTA.

  • ohshaith55

    There should be a “Yeah right” option

  • Tyler Casilio

    Not my style. Sorry :

  • Simon

    I won’t even consider it until after the JB update is out. Given the lies, delays and general mess with the Bionic, I would assume that the update schedule will be changed often and for the worse. Even with JB, I’d rather have a Nexus.

  • The speakers of the gs3 are not as good as Motorola devices.

    • nhizzat

      The Galaxy Nexus speaker is terrible, at least the SGS3 is better though.

      • That’s what I have heard. Motorola and Sony are the best when it comes to speakers.

    • AnGeLFaCe777

      Motorola are the best period.

  • tomn1ce

    The only reason I said no was because I got my G-Nexus at the end of Dec. and it still working fine for me….but if I would be in the market for a new phone I would pick up the Droid Razr Maxx HD….I’m pretty sure that the developers would crack these open in a mater of days and provide all the support necessary to get rid of vzw bloatware and get a nice rom on it…Mind you I’m not into rooting or anything of that sort….

    • nhizzat

      I still don’t understand why people complain about bloatware…

    • chris125

      no moto device yet on verizon has been “cracked open” good luck thinking they will get this cracked open.

  • wm snyder

    I have not wanted another phone since the samsung galaxy nexus the only phone that will tempt me is another Google nexus phone provided it has enough hardware upgrades. As for tablets waiting on Google next 10.1inch flagship tablet to replace xoom. You could say I’m scared of carriers who think and act like they know best for there customers such as updates certain apps prohibited and what kind of rom I would like or what device is getting the latest updates and how long it takes them but you can buy a new phone with the new update. So I am banking heavily on Google. Htc did it Moto done it twice actually a now Samsung galaxy nexus accessories and I’m very happy.

  • Ny Reynolds

    For some reason I don’t like their design. Nice to see them offer a boot loader solution. Change the design and I’d probably buy another Motorola later on.

  • WikkdWarrior

    I started w/ an og droid (awesome phone…heard its getting jelly bean). Upgraded to droid x (still have it…its my 3yr old sons “play” phone…lol) then the bionic for the dual core…lapdock and all…spent 1100.00 @ the Verizon store…my wife has that now…I hate the fact that moto won’t release phones w/ unlocked bootloaders…I vowed to never purchase moto brand devices…so here I am typing this from my galaxy nexus and I will only purchase nexus devices in the future. Good day! 🙂

  • Larry

    Too little too late for me and Moto. Their firm standing against unlocked bootloaders and turned me off completely to them forever. Not even Google buying them out can make me give Moto another shot. Basically Moto has shot themselves in the foot for many original Moto owners. I can’t say they’ll be find without the many of us that have negative feelings towards them because the competition is very fierce nowadays.

    • Larry

      If this poll is any indication of how they will do, 2/3 of the votes are against buying any of Moto’s three devices as of right now and the HTC’s superphone nor has the iPhone 5 been introduced. If those were all Android owners or future owners saying no, that’s 2/3 of them saying no I’d prefer a Samsung Galaxy S3 or some other Android device.

  • I love Moto but I got the S3 on launch and so far I am extremely satisfied with it especially since I cam from the Droid Razr so I have a great unlocked and rooted device!

  • Anon

    Missing option: “Only if it has Jelly Bean stock, as I don’t trust Motorola/Verizon’s timetable on updates”.

    • nhizzat

      So did you pass on the SGS3 too?

      • Anon

        SGS3 doesn’t have a native car dock, which is a requirement for me too. Motorola, for all its detractors, has excellent accessories.

  • TheRobotCow

    Here’s what I have to say. With smartphones and technology overall there is always something better around the corner. Don’t blame the manufactures for pushing things out quickly, sometimes we shouldn’t rush our purchases, but then again we don’t always know what’s around the corner. Its a gamble when we go out and buy a smartphone.

  • Nah man Droid phones are weak the design is so uninspired.I’ll be able waiting for the real Google ✆

  • fanboy1974

    Minus the S4 processor this should have been last years Razr. Totally disappointed with Motorola but I expected it before the announcement. These phones still cannot topple the Samsung S3.
    Praying that HTC hit’s it out the park with the first 1080p display or maybe a Verizon Note 2.

  • Zach

    Everone is voting no because of two phones that will probably never ever see Verizon’s network, the next Nexus and the Note 2. Crazy.

    • HeartStrong07

      Would switch Networks for Nexus and Note 2, if Verizon doesn’t carry them

      • chris125


  • jnmigr

    If it wasn’t because of the note 2 I might had consider the HD maxx.

  • nhizzat

    I’m not disappointed by them at all. The HD and Maxx HD are on par with the SGS3. It’s funny how people complain about spec bumps when that’s all manufacturers have been offering for the longest time.

    • chris125

      they are on par for *now* but aren’t coming out for who knows how long. Bionic round 2? I mean by the time they are available, the iphone, new htc and lg with quad core will be out and once again moto will be behind the ball. If these had the s4 pro then waiting would be acceptable, but that is not the case.

      • Zero_Point_Energy

        Did you seriously just mention the iPhone? gtfo.

  • Sporttster

    I’ve already got a Razr converted to a MAXX, so why would I go to one of these? Makes no sense. I’m not going to keep going up the Razr ladder. I did the Maxx conversion to help with batt life. Not going to the HD now. I’m sure the screen ain’t a lot better to bother….I like the screen on what I have.

    • nhizzat

      Better screen, better battery, better processor?

      • Sporttster

        I seriously doubt at all that it’s going to have a better batt than the Maxx already has. And mine isn’t slow so why do I care again for a minutely faster processor??? If mine were lagging like my OG Droid used to, then yea I see the need. A half a sec faster response time? Forget it. My Maxx is perfectly fine, thanks.

        • nhizzat

          Minutely isn’t accurate when describing how much faster the S4 is when compared to the OMAP 4460 let alone the 4430.

        • chris125

          the s4 is much more efficient so that will help with battery not to mention the maxx lagged worse on ics when I had it then with gb. The s4 is much more than minutely faster.

    • fierywater

      The CPU is the biggest reason. My friend’s One X runs circles around my RAZR Maxx. It’s almost painful to witness.


    Hell no!

  • michael centeno

    I think Motorola is already on a point of no return. lost way too many customers when they decided to lock the android for far too long when people literally begged them to unlock, and when they said they were going to unlock, they didn’t. Props on unlocking finally, but its a bit too late now. should have listened to the customers. Isn’t that 101? dont get me started with the moto blur.

    • nhizzat

      They didn’t lose customers because of that…If you think our little community of “hackers” affects their bottom line, you’re nuts.

    • chris125

      actually I think the old blur is what killed them. It was so awful it turned a ton of users off of android and especially moto. They have made good strides but still need a lot of work

  • Make it available on T-Mobile and I might consider it.

  • Russ

    Motorola can shove their locked bootloader up their ass! I’ll never buy a Moto product again.

    • nhizzat

      What phone on VZW other than a Nexus has an unlockable bootloader?

      • Tim242

        Every one of their HTC devices…

        • nhizzat

          Which are unlocked by using HTCdev, which is what Motorola will be offering?

          • Tim242

            Doesn’t matter how it is offered. BTW, Moto does have an unlock site. They already have a few devices on it. Makes no sense why Verizon allows unlocking on HTC’s site, but not Moto’s. Doesn’t make sense that they allow dev edition moto phones, but claim unlocked phones may harm their network. The point is, an unlocked phone is unlocked, regardless of how it is unlocked

          • nhizzat

            So you won’t have anything to complain about once these phones show up on Motodev?

          • Tim242

            I’m not complaining haha. But, unfortunately, they won’t be on motodev

  • CapnShiner

    I need an option in the poll for “It depends on the prices” or “I’m not sure yet” because I am most likely looking at a developer edition. I’m buying off-contract to keep my plan, so I may as well get something unlocked. I’m trying to decide between a Motorola Developer Edition, the GS3 Developer Edition, or a new Nexus. I cannot decide until I have more information.

    • chris125

      you don’t need the sgs3 developer edition since the bootloader was cracked.

      • CapnShiner

        I’m pretty sure they will be the same price though.

  • paul_cus

    Sorry, Motorola, I’ll be back at some point.

  • brando56894

    I may not get one of the dev editions because I don’t have the money right now, but if I did I would definitely buy the HD MAXX dev edition (that is if it even exists). I do want to see what the new Nexus devices are before I drop half a grand on a device that I don’t really need to upgrade lol (I have the Rezound).

  • nightscout13

    I’m really surprised that so many people say they will not be getting one of these RAZR’s, they are truly great phones. And Motorola radio’s are exceptional.

    • LiterofCola


  • HeartStrong07

    Not buying …. waiting for the Nexus 4 or Galaxy Note 2 …. The Nokia Lumia 920 (especially paired with a Surface Pro) , however, has my attention …

    • Diablo81588

      What’s so great about it? As far as I knew, WP8 is still the same crippled OS that the previous version was.

      • HeartStrong07

        Could be but I am not so sure … the Lumia 920 has all the right specs and for a person that attends a lot of meetings and prefers note taking and using Microsoft at work, the Surface Pro is worthy of consideration … also, throw in that they might uniquely connect with my Xbox, and I am open to take a peak .. I do love my VZW Galaxy Nexus ..

    • nhizzat

      Good luck seeing either phone on VZW.

      • HeartStrong07

        I would switch Networks for either device … I like the flexible with GNexus and I am a big note taking so I know I would enjoy the GNote 2 … Let’s see what HTC has in store …

        • chris125

          especially with how google sells them through the playstore for a pretty reasonable price it makes it easier to get one and go gsm. CDMA is the devil.

  • Trevor

    Gotta wait and see what the Nexus scene will be like in a couple/few months. If none of those interest me (or aren’t offered for Verizon), then I would definitely consider the Razr Maxx HD as long as it had a good camera and Moto’s famous reception.

  • nightscout13

    I know 100% that if i didn’t get my GS3 for Verizon, I would be sporting the MAXX HD. I had to use my upgrade in July, because it was the last upgrade i would have to keep my data.

  • would get the maxx HD, but I already have the razr maxx

  • J2000pro

    Voted not buying, but only because I just got a Razr maxx off ebay early last month and don’t want to buy another phone off contract, or upgrade at this time and loose unlimited data when I’m eligible in the coming months. Otherwise I’d be all over the Razr HD Maxx.

  • They’re not even running JellyBean for Heaven’s sake. And we know the BL will be locked. So, yeah… NO!

    • nhizzat

      You just described the SGS3.

  • Jim McClain

    Just put jelly bean on my gnex and just bought the wife the s3, so we are fine for now, but that razor maxx does look hot

  • Adam

    I Currently have the Bionic the Razr Maxx HD sold me!! and i just checked im due for my upgrade now does anyone know if the bionic is getting Jellybean?

  • Gnex is still running like a champ for me

  • BlynkOfAnEye

    I’m not looking to replace my D4 in the near future, but at some point I’d love to see a RAZR HD slider of some sort. D5, where you be?

    • chris125

      3 months out…

  • Daniel

    Not until they put out a new QWERTY phone, hopefully more compact if anything than my awesome Droid 4…maybe with stock for once? A Nexus Droid 5 would be lovely…hint hint

    • Diablo81588

      QWERTY is so 2009 😉

  • PMLong16

    Jumpped off the Motorola band wagon for my Samsung Galaxy SIII last Friday knowing these phones were going to come out.

  • tlspatt

    2000 mAh for the M? my G-Nex has 2150 and can’t get me through the day. no MAXX option for the M? and 2500 mAh considering the screen size & resolution on the HD MAXX doesn’t sound like enough to even compare with the RAZR MAXX. give me 3000+ mAh on the M and then we’re talking… I love my G-Nex, but all the software hacks aren’t nearly as impressive if the battery doesn’t get me through the day and carrying a spare (and charging it) is such a pain when my G-Nex has a case on it.

    • Diablo81588

      The RAZR HD is the phone with a 2500mah battery. The maxx hd will have the standard 3300 like the orignal maxx.

    • nhizzat

      You can’t compare their batteries because I can guarantee that the Razr M will last longer than the Galaxy Nexus which has subpar battery life. SGS3 only has a 2100mAh battery and lasts twice as long as the Galaxy Nexus.

  • PyroHoltz

    I’d like to know how their, $100 credit towards 2011 devices that didn’t see ICS/JB, works. The wife’s D3 is pretty crappy.

  • Pegleg

    Was planning on the MAXX HD but now that I see they have dumbed the battery down forget it! I’ll wait for something better or just get a RAZR MAXX since it is going to get JB…I think.

    • Detonation

      what do you mean dumbed the battery down? the maxx hd has the same 3300 as the original maxx

  • Michael_NM

    I have a Droid, Droid X, Droid Bionic, and a Xoom LTE. I use a Galaxy SIII, and a Nexus 7. My answer = hell no! Unless and until Google reigns in the Blur Bandits, moto nomo for me.

    • CapnShiner

      Your comment reeks of ignorance. Have you seen the version of Blur on ICS or JB? It looks almost stock. There is very little trace of the old Blur in there. Besides, software can be changed. It’s the hardware that matters most.

    • azndan4

      Amen. Blur must die.

    • nhizzat

      You bemoan Blur but bought a phone with TouchWiz?

    • Zero_Point_Energy

      You fail, miserably.

  • Fbstar92

    People keep saying they are waiting for the next nexus which is understandable but if its updates you are worried about with motorola being bought buy google it will be at the front of the line with the nexus for the latest update. The battery in the razr maxx hd and motorola being owned by google has sold me. I have the verizon galaxy nexus now and everybody knows how the update process has been on this device. The HD versions of these phones dont come out till the holidays and by then we should have more info on what nexus device will b coming out. Now if google could bring out a nexus by motorola with a 3300mah battery, 13mgp camera and top of the line processor (which they are more than capable of) then id most likely choose that. I have a feeling though that the motorola razrs will have faster updates from verizon becuase verizon will b able to have all its bloatware on it and have their hands deeply embedded into this device then they could with the galaxy nexus and thats why i feel the galaxy nexus has been neglected. We will see what happens later on this year but personally i think i will be buying the razr maxx hd.

  • jessiejames1209

    Going for a Note 2 if it comes to Verizon. If not It will be a toss up between the S3 and the Moto HD Maxx.

    • nhizzat

      Buy the Razr Maxx HD. If you don’t like it, I’ll trade you my SGS3.

      • jessiejames1209

        What are the reasons you would trade a SGS3 for a Razr maxx hd

        • nhizzat

          Better radios and build quality. I was going to buy a Razr Maxx off contract but the screen pushed me away so I ended up with a SGS3 to replace my Galaxy Nexus. Only complaint I’ve got with my SGS3 is the Home button.

          Plus, Motorola got me started with Android.

  • Go Hawkeyes

    They are all ugly compared to my beautiful blue SGS3.

    • LiterofCola

      Yeah, but Touchwiz is horrible.

      • Justin

        Don’t forget the plastic its made of… at least these have high quality durable materials.

      • Go Hawkeyes

        What is the Touchwiz you speak of. CM9 has no such thing. :p

    • Zero_Point_Energy

      The GS3 is ugly as sin.

  • watchthesky

    Did they state the price for the HD or HD MAXX?

    • Diablo81588

      No, but I’d take a guess that the M will be 99 (which was confirmed), the HD 199, and the MAXX HD 299.

      • Fbstar92

        Razr Hd will probably be 199…Razr Hd maxx 16g storage 249 and rarz hd mxx with 32g storage 300….just my guess

        • Diablo81588

          I watched the whole event and they made a comment about the maxx coming with 32GB, vs the HD was 16GB. They never mentioned anything about a 16GB maxx, but anything is possible.

          • Fbstar92

            Yea not on this video but the video for the max on phonedog.com the presenter mentions it

  • These aren’t really all that exciting. Their new big feature is Chrome and LTE. I think we have had those for awhile… New phones are so boring now days. Spec bump, give us your money!

  • Cory Parker

    Like another poster here said, I’ll also be getting the Razr M but for my wife as she’s still with an OG Incredible while I have the Galaxy Nexus

  • Just got a message that my comment is awaiting moderator approval. OK STALIN! OK HITLER!!

    • Diablo81588

      Don’t say bad words 😛

    • stupidllama

      yes because moderating message boards is just like what both of those two did. let me guess you just started your first day of high school today and picked out the first two name you found from your world history book.

  • No because I have already signed my two year contract. Devices look good and all, would consider if my contract was up. Only question though is why did it take so long for Motorola to pump out an HD device? Is this that much better then the rezound that it took so long? I’m asking not moto hating.

    • The big improvement compared to a Rezound, for example, I think would be the S4 processor, similar to the Galaxy S3. I can’t answer why they didn’t put out an HD display sooner, but these look like solid devices.

      • Sorry I didn’t make it clear but I figured the processor would be a step up but what about the display? I could only assume the delay of an HD screen was because they made this display far better than what is out.

  • Until they drop PenTile for good, not buying another Moto phone.

    • It’s a fair criticism, but the HD-resolution pentile displays look very good.

  • William_Morris

    Would love a Moto device but a few things make it impossible for me.

    1. Not gonna purchase a “blur’d” device.
    2. Considering VZW’s new policies regarding us few that remain unlimited, I’d have to purchase it off contract which puts it out of reasonable purchase reach.
    3. No guarantee that VZW won’t have this thing locked down. Yeah I know they’re trying to be more friendly about that, but I have serious doubt that VZW will whistle to that tune.

  • Diablo81588

    What’s wrong with the poll? It won’t let me vote 🙁

  • David Hayden

    Why does it show that I’ve already voted? I haven’t voted.

  • BrianLipp

    Poll needs the option “Only if Verizon doesn’t get a Nexus this year”

    • TheRobotCow

      I agree, i might ditch verizon for att if we dont get the multiple nexus’ but im not sure yet, might as well pick up a developer edition of the razr hd

      • BrianLipp

        im not gonna ditch verizon because from what i hear and know, at&t is just plain evil and terrible. Sure verizon is terrible too, but, you go with the lesser of two evils. if theres no nexus i might go maxx hd dev edition, since im on a family plan and my dad doesnt want to lose the grandfathered unlimited data

        • AnGeLFaCe777

          Why not the droid razr hd, the battery is almost identically and it is slimmer.

      • AnGeLFaCe777

        The Razr’s developer edition will be Verizon’s nexus mark my words.

    • NicholasMicallef

      TBH the Verizon one is not as pure of an experience as the normal one from google, and I always avoid contracts because you end up spending more.

      • BrianLipp

        the only real difference (besides LTE) is that it doesnt get official google OTAs as fast (thanks Verizon QA). You can root it and install custom ROMs just as easily as the GSM versions (which is what i did. Bugless Beast JB). Im still on a grandfathered unlimited data family plan, so contract-less is where we might be headed. Also, Moto Nexus please because Sammy radios are the pits

        • AnGeLFaCe777

          I completely agree with you Samsung are the worst when it comes to radios, build quality.

      • noc007

        How does one spend more on contract? The benefit of the contract is a subsidized phone (cheaper) and locking in one’s plan/rate (stopping increases for that time)? The plan price isn’t any different on VZW between on or off contract. I know carriers elsewhere the rate increases with a subsidized phone and it’s more of a payment plan than anything.

        Personally I wish carriers here in the US would adopt this model:
        Leave the monthly rate alone. Have a down-payment price on a phone with a monthly payback for the balance over the course of 12-20 months. The down-payment can change due to sales and such. There shouldn’t be a difference in cost between outright or payment plan. Want to leave? Pay the balance. Want the latest greatest? Pay the balance.

  • 1GB Ram, dual core processor, HD screen with on screen buttons…I already have that in a phone from last year its the Galaxy Nexus

    • fierywater

      The dual core CPU in the Galaxy Nexus doesn’t hold a candle to the S4.

      • I’m aware didn’t say it did just saying that this phones specs aren’t too impressing for a late 2012 release

        • The only thing Samsung may have over this phone is the ram.

          • Guest

            … and the unlocked Bootloader with AOSP

          • Sammy

            And camera…Moto just doesn’t care about picture quality from its cameras.

          • I agree! it seems that HTC are the ones working hard on that department.

          • LiterofCola

            But it’s still a Samsung :/

            the nexus has the same amount of ram. The sgs3 has the same processor, same screen, more ram, and isn’t locked down like moto devices….

          • Samsung put more ram, but also a cheaper display unlike the Gs2. One G of ram still good it depends on the software. Motorola’s newest blur run smooth on ICS. It will be a battle between GS3, Iphone 5 and the razr maxx HD.

          • AnGeLFaCe777

            Razr maxx HD and Razr HD the king of 2012 🙂

      • stewie

        Two letters: OC

        You can’t do it on that locked thing.

        • nhizzat

          Oh joy, you can OC the Galaxy Nexus a whole 150mhz! And I’ve got my SGS3 OC’d to 1900. What’s that about not being able to do it on a locked phone?

        • Big_EZ

          Hate to break it to you but I’ve oc’d 3 of my locked devices, Droid X, Droid Bionic, and My Droid RAZR Maxx.

        • Galaxy nexus was a failure.

          • LOL suuureeee.

            Blame Marketing

          • nhizzat

            Marketing? What does subpar battery life and radios have to do with marketing?

          • No the Bionic was a failure

          • Both were a failure!

          • Big_EZ

            No it wasn’t, it sold well and it was a great phone. It is still the best option for anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors because of its bright screen. The pentile screen issues were blown way out of proportion (mainly by people who never used it) and was only a problem if you use your phone 4″ from your face.

            I’ll agree with that on VZW.

            And Motorola battery life (up until the SGS3), bulid quality, and radios are far superior to anything Samsung has released.

            And I own both the Galaxy Nexus and SGS3. Tempted to trade my SGS3 for the Razr or Razr Maxx HD when they’re available. Or just sell it and pick up the Developer Edition since Samsung STILL hasn’t released their Developer Edition SGS3.

          • fierywater

            Why worry about the Developer Edition SGS3? The community found a way to unlock the bootloader a little while back.

          • They need to improve their cameras. I don’t know why they have not done that.

          • Motorola always have good reception, call quality and good speakers. The other manufactures like samsung and htc have been having the best cameras and display.

    • nhizzat

      The only difference is these will get better reception and battery life.

  • TheRobotCow

    I think i might buy my girlfriend the razr m, i know many of us wanted more but for the average consumer out there this is actually a good solid lineup. Here’s to hoping for an intel powered motorola droid nexus!!!

  • Id rather wait til DROID X3 w/ front-face camera 8MEGAPIXEL CAMERA and not giving my hopes up.

    • Trueblue711

      This is kinda what the Bionic was.

  • Maybe I can get a replacment one of these for my Data dropping Bionic.

    • Diablo81588

      Install the ICS leak, its flawless. Zero data drops since I installed it well over a month ago.

      • Ill see what I can do about a new device first, even If its the regular razr.
        I did take that into consideration during “Early Q3” Lol K.

  • galaxy s 3 already has my money 🙁

    • same, but no sad face.

  • New Nexus or bust!

  • carlisimo

    The Droid RAZR M is easily the best non-huge phone on Verizon. That should count for something.

  • I’ll wait for the Motorola RAZR Nexus Max HD

  • Looks like someone barfed on the screen.

    • Chad

      Rainbow barf.

  • RoadsterHD1

    Waiting for Quad-core models

    • I don’t think there ever will be quad-core phones on LTE….

      • al

        S4 pro

  • Chad

    Nope. Waiting for the next Nexus.

    • Michael Forte

      I’d like to say the same, I’m just worried that Verizon isn’t getting one.

      • I really hope Verizon will carry the next Nexus — even though Nexus on Verizon isn’t the same as the “REAL Nexus”, I have to stick with it due to its superb coverage in my area. Unfortunately, the chance it will carry the Nexus is pretty low. No, I don’t think Google is angry with how Verizon handles the update process. Quite the contrary, I think Verizon doesn’t want a developer phone on its network.

        • TheRobotCow

          I think that’s why motorola has to sell the developer editon off contract. I am really hoping that verizon will get the variety of nexus devices that are planned.

          • I think we have had those for awhile… New phones are so boring now days. Spec bump, give us your money! http://iphone5Amazing.blogspot.com

          • TheRobotCow

            Thanks for your garbage spam 🙂

          • Doesn’t really matter to me where I get the phone since I have to pay full retail to keep my unlim data plan… I’ll just buy the dev devices from now on.

          • chris125


          • AnGeLFaCe777

            That seems like a good idea ! Motorola should have given you the option tool to unlock their devices like they did with the photon Q and the atrix hd not make you guys buy the unlock edition.

      • AnGeLFaCe777

        The nexus was the biggest failure on Verizon.

    • Apostrafee

      I’m curious to see if anyone specifically will get a Nexus phone. Perhaps they’ll just sell them the way they are selling the Nexus 7 tablet and GNex

    • LiterofCola

      Depends on who makes it though.

    • RussyJo

      I feel like Google will wait on the next nexus until closer to when Android 4.2’s release. As a Bionic owner, there’s no way I’m waiting until then. I will probably get the next nexus when it comes out, but HD MAXX for me for now.

      • AnGeLFaCe777

        The droid Razr Hd and the Droid Razr Maxxx will be the best devices in the whole world.

    • lemonhead127

      Now what do you say about the Nexus? No 4G + no expandable storage. I wonder what the results would be if people knew about that stuff when this was asked.

  • Jeremy Morrison

    I smell an Apple lawsuit. How dare they release the same phone…. Again!

    • really old and stupid comment

      • Jeremy Morrison

        How is this stupid. Besides the HD display and the S4 what is different? It’s like Apple releasing a S phone

        • azndan4

          Agreed. Motorola fails to impress again. Same old tired 2011 design. Outdated specs (Phones were coming out with the S4 way back in early spring).

        • nhizzat

          And what has any other manufacturer done differently?

          • Jeremy Morrison

            I think HTC hit a home run with its One series. Samsung made a drastic change with the Galaxy line as well. Even though the Galaxy S3 looks a lot like a Nexus and the Note looks like the first Note

  • paddypants

    I just don’t understand how this phone, which comes out in several weeks, will be better than the new iPhone and the S3 which will have already been out well before it. I want to believe it is a good idea to hold out, but today was pretty depressing.

    • This seems mostly on par with the S3. I like the idea of the big battery in the MAXX version though.

      • Pegleg

        But its not 3300mAh like the MAXX!

        • Diablo81588

          It doesn’t have 2GB of RAM though either 🙁

      • nhizzat

        I like the idea of great build quality and far superior radios.

  • Matt

    The real question is, how many people would buy them if they were stock android?

    • I would guess a lot of people are on contracts, so aren’t really free to just buy a new $500-600 device, but I still can’t fully wrap my brain around why at least one OEM doesn’t just release vanilla Android devices, especially Moto.

    • nhizzat

      People that care about AOSP are a drop in the bucket. These will sell by the millions, hopefully as well as the SGS3.

      • chris125

        wont sell as well as sgs3 since this is on 1 carrier in the US. Make it on every carrier and moto would be back in the game like samsung is

  • Just got the Razr Maxx in June, wish I would have waited a few more months. Should have got a Nexus.

    • fierywater

      I just got the RAZR Maxx in June too. I unfortunately needed a phone *right then* and couldn’t wait for the S III or any of these. I’m still probably going to sell it towards something newer, though; I can’t stand how slow the ICS update feels.

      • Are you on contract?

        • fierywater

          Unfortunately. I may just use a family member’s upgrade and buy her a phone, though.

          • Lucky. No one else in my family is ready for an upgrade at the moment.

    • nhizzat

      I’ll trade you my Galaxy Nexus straight up.

      • I’m curious as to why?

        • nhizzat

          Battery life and radios.
