Hey that has to be true.....Although the battery is long enough to last the entire day it would make sense that you gonna have to charge it for a long time too! Kinda inconvenient when you think about it.

This is why i believe the Razr MAXX HD is just a rumor and not real......The Razr HD with the 2500 mAh battery is probably the best thing that will happen to the mobile world..It is going to have all the top notch specs like the galaxy S3 but with a way bigger battery and a better design as well, you really dont need that 3300 mAh battery becasue the 2500 mAh is already blowing the S3 out and will last twice as long as the S3 will........We got a winner Moto

I wouldn't say the battery either blows the S3 out or will last twice as long ... lol

2100 mAh from 2500 mAh battery is a 400 mAh difference but look at it like this.....
1400 mAh from 1800 mAh

1500 mAh from 1900 mAh

or 1600 mAh from 2000 mAh

the difference is clearer now aint it........ :)

thats why i said it would blow the S3 out because a 400 difference is honestly a substantial amount in terms of battery capacity..

400mAh may make a big difference when the sizes are small. ie 100mAh vs 400mAh = 4x a difference in capacity. 400mAh vs 800mAh = 2x a difference in capacity. 2100mAh (GSIII) va 2500mAh (RAZR HD) = 1.19x a difference in capacity. But if you put numbers really big there is hardly any difference... 1,000,000mAh vs 1,000,400mAh = 1.0004x a difference in capacity. 400mAh doesn't always make a difference like you said in your analogy. XD

Just saw this post, and lol.. Think of the HTC One X (1800mAh) vs Galaxy S3 (2100mAh)... Furthermore, battery life leans more towards the Galaxy S3 when you coinsider what technologies each phones employ. i.e. Colorboost vs. AMOLED.... S4 Pro vs S4 ..

Look I wasn't saying that the extra 400mAh would be super nice - because it would be...
His analogy however is completely false because 400mAh wouldn't make the battery "blow away" the S3 in terms of battery life. Sure it would & will make a difference but not enough to it away "blow away".
I upgraded my Evo 3D battery to a 3500mAh battery recently & it is absolutely wonderful though! So bigger batteries are always welcome & nice! :D

Ok ill go easy on you and take back the "blow away" term since nobody wants the galaxy s3 to be "blown away" LOL....I'll just say it will be noticeably better than the galaxy s3? sound fair?

It has nothing to do with us wanting the Galaxy S3 to be "blown" away... I guess you are assuming that we are Samsung fanboys? =0 ..

Remember, battery life is dependant on more than simply how many mAh are actually stored within the battery. There are different factors as well -- OS and screen technologies being the other most common differentiating factors between most phones nowadays when comparing battery life. The Razr ups the ante a little bit more with Adreno 320, which in itself will may use up more battery than oldie S4, but only time will tell there. Qualcomm promises "All-day battery life" with the S4 pro, but we will witness that for ourselves soon. Then there's ColorBoost, which, in most scenarios, will suck in more power than AMOLED, exemplified by the Atrix HD's less-than-pleasurable battery performance. Granted, the consumer market hasn't been made privy to the actual specifics of ColorBoost, but we can still work off what we have. Factor in all these variables, then you can see why the 400mAh difference can shrink to almost negligible performance enhancements. Obviously, extra battery should show a difference somewhere, but I think people are looking at this increase in capacity in the wrong light. TBH, I don't think Motorola used more battery to push the 10-hour bar any higher, in this case, but to fortify the backbone of the device. Seeing how it will utilize superior albeit, power-consumptive components, it would only be logical to increase battery life. These specifications on a 2100mAh certainly wouldn't hold up 10 hours with consistency of the lower powered Galaxy S3, for example. Granted, most of what I'm saying can either be true or false, depending on how you look at it, but the scenarios I explain here are certainly possible.

If this device can hold 10 hours, it will have many reasons to proclaim itself the best Android phone. However, as I said in the first comment, to the resent of many people, Motorola will have to share attention with powerhouses like the iPhone 5, and possible the next Nexus device, and it certainly won't outshine either, seeing how Motorola has sunken out of the spotlight recently, heavily out-shadowed by HTC and Samsung.

Lol, no offense dude, but if you are going to defend an ideal as passionately as you are, it makes no sense to simply shy off as soon as someone substantiates they're own ideals, you know? I mean, what have you done on this post:

1. Defend Motorola on excessive, unsubstantiated bases.

2. Call everyone who disagrees with you a fanboy, which is ironic because your name is XPERIA-KNIGHT... -___-

3. Leave

Just saying, lol..

i never called anyone a fan boy "IN HERE"....just saying it seems that alot of people are GS3 fan boys.....and after watchin vids of the ONE X and GS3 people are holding the S3 up like its the best thing ever......when the One X isnt even on android 4.0.4 and the GS3 is!! I say wait until they are on the same level with each other and then do a fair comparison and not just make people believe that since its the "galaxy s3" it is untouchable......so thats what kinda makes me think most people are fanyboys ya know? and about not reading your post? im pretty sure you could have sumed up your point in less words than that

There are several distinct reasons the Galaxy S3 is better than the HTC One X, most of which don't have anything to do with what firmware of Android they are running.
The run-down basically includes camera quality, camera options, UI features and stability(Sammy has been historically better than HTC at UI optimization, so whether or not Sense is cleansed with 4.0.4 is anyone's guess, but very unlikely), Removable battery/bigger battery/more battery life, expandable storage .. Most if not all of those advantages are objective in nature, so you wouldn't be a fanboy by saying the GS3 is a better, more well-rounded choice. Granted, the One X is now only 99$, which skyrockets the value, but if price is no object, the GS3 is the clearly superior phone.

Well to me the galaxy S3 is more of a geeks phone than it is an "everybody" phone......Just like the galaxy S3 "blows" it out in specs like you like to think...I think the HTC One X "blows" the galaxy S3 out in design! Now if i wanna be satisfied about making a GREAT choice when deciding on a phone....I will not only go for "Specs" of a phone but design and specs both.......while the One X may not be better than the S3 in that area it certainly is more of a well rounded device.......Great Design....Good specs not as great....but good.......and also a better price tag.... You are paying sum 600 to 700 hundred dollars for a phone that only satisfies the "geek" side of you....when you can have beauty, comfort, and power with a much lower price tag.......

IMO thats the better choice any day all day...

"Well to me the galaxy S3 is more of a geeks phone than it is an "everybody" phone" -- Considering that is purely subjective, you understand why it cannot be used in this argument.

"I think the HTC One X "blows" the galaxy S3 out in design" -- Well, they are both made out of the same poly-carbonate exterior, the Galaxy S3 layered with Hyperglaze that protects it even further from scratching, though it gives the phone a plastic-y feel. The Galaxy S3 is actually thinner than the One X and sports a more ergonomic design, though the Unibody construction of the One X is much more appealing to the eye. Add all this together, and you can definitely say the One X is better than the Galaxy S3 aesthetically, but I don't know if "blows" out is the right term, considering this is completely subjective.

"Now if i wanna be satisfied about making a GREAT choice when deciding on a phone"
.. Sure.

"I will not only go for "Specs" of a phone but design and specs both" -- Well, yes, but you were doubting why people chose the Galaxy S3 to be better than the HTC One X in reviews. Considering the aesthetics come down to opinion, and the Galaxy S3 benefits much more from it's design than HTC One X, the only basis off which the reviewer could judge the phones would be specs.

"while the One X may not be better than the S3 in that area it certainly is more of a well rounded device"

AREAS* first of all -- You're over exaggerating the minute aesthetic flaws of the Galaxy S3. All-in-all, the S3 is definitely a more well-rounded device. You base your conclusion off your personal distaste of the S3 design.

"Great Design....Good specs not as great....but good.......and also a better price tag"

Design - Yes
Sepcs - Definitely not as great
Price Tag - I mentioned that

"you are paying sum 600 to 700 hundred dollars for a phone that only satisfies the "geek" side of you....when you can have beauty, comfort, and power with a much lower price tag......."

I don't even know where to start here... So I won't.

"IMO thats the better choice any day all day..."

"IMO" basically sums up that entire rant.

yep and the update to android 4.0.4 and sense 4.1 will put it where it belongs.......better than the galaxy S3

Yes agreed! Big batteries are very nice. 400mAh probably won't make a "huge" difference but it is always welcome! Especially in these newer phones with bigger screens.

Not all people is as rich as you that buying ten battery with an overpriced device. Mind as well buy two razr maxx with that kind of price. Just in case one get stolen.

Find a financial consultant before you speak.

that's exaggerated all the way around the bat. you don't need 10 batteries and batteries are cheap when you get them from places like Amazon. before the Razr i was known to carry an extra Battery or two with me for my Droid 3 and my Droid 2 before it.

Good for you but not all people think in this way tho, they are not tech geeks like us and most people charge it overnight everyday instead of keep remove the battery which may hurt the back cover. Do you know what I mean? People still prepare the budget when buying the phone.

oh yeah, i see the advantages of large non-removable batteries. really the Razr HD will be able to serve the Average Joe's needs just fine with it's 2530mAh battery and 28nm based SoC and another MAXX would overkill in the battery life department and i don't see charging it being a problem for these but i know myself how nice it is to be able to have a fully charged spare battery if you need it. it's more of a better to have it and not need it kind of thing with most people but in this case non-removable won't be a problem and you'll have the advantage of better build quality.

I got the Droid RAZR on release day... 11/11/11. The ICS update was done a couple weeks ago.

How exactly did you swap for an S3? When did you ever burn out a full charge in a single day? Why do you think 45 min is a long time to fully charge? Why don't you havea car charger? Certainly you have USB ports in your car like mine...why not use them?

Do you actually expect us to believe you dropped $299 on the RAZR...then paid early term fees...then bought an S3? If you did, you are a fool. I call BS though.

i hope you're not using the USB ports in your car to charge the phone because that would be slower than using the cigarette lighter adapter thing and not everybody has USB Ports in their car.

he wouldn't have necessarily had to cancel his contract to get an SIII, he could've used something like Swappa, Craigslist or the Forums to trade or sell his Razr and bought an SIII outright or bought one someone was selling. all of which would've been cheaper than what you accused him of.

they seriously need to stop this madness. why not just one have-it-all device? one that could compete directly with the s 3, one x and iphone 5 for months to come... not by adding more words and specs little by little.

Did you forget? This is Moto. They put out 4 different phones within 4 months with the tiniest variations all on the same carrier and now hasn't had one for 6 months. Either they like surprises or hate logic.

it's a phone and the same phone with a bigger battery pack, is that really madness to you?
i say it's madness not to! You can have some money and still get a phone with a bigger battery than anything else on the market, or pay a little more and still have all the goodness of that same phone. It's a win win for everyone.

Back looks obscene -- going from the razr to the Atrix to the razr hd, it seems Moto is getting progressively worse in the asthetic department ... Seeing as how late Moto is releasing this device, it would only make sense to opt for S4 Pro or OMAP 5, anything less would be unusual. I think the release date makes this a difficult device for everyone -- the Nexus will be right around the corner, and will probably offer superior specs. Plus,it will be hard to establish itself in the midst of iPhone 5 mania. Then there's the rumored HTC One X+ with superior specs to its predecessor. Moto better have something serious in the works... because this phone will not get the attention that the competing flag-ship devices did, and the Atrix HD didn't show any real threatening signs

I say wait till this thing comes out to judge it, but Moto has a thin window..
