I know there are several topics like this already but I just can not make up my mind. I've fallen in love with the razr from what I've seen/read and basically I wanted to know what some of you out there would do if in my shoes. I'm due for an upgrade and I can't decide if I should go ahead and get a razr now or wait for god knows how long for the razr maxx. If I knew when the razr maxx would drop out then I would wait, but I know how Verizon/Motorola is about these things and I honestly don't want to wait 3+ months if it comes to that. I've ruled out the Galaxy Nexus, because honestly I'm not a fan of samsung's phones & accessories design & build when compared to Motorola's, though the unlocked boot loader is very tempting. Also in my opinion the lack of a micro sd slot, something so basic, is a big turn off on the Nexus.

I'd suggest finding a razr in the local classifieds if you can get it cheap enough...and when the max comes out, upgrade to it.

even better idea - buy razr now, play with it. when maxx is announced, swap it for a nexus on craigslist, then when it's released swap the nexus for a maxx.

(because nobody will swap a razr maxx for a razr)

It really don't matter if you get the razr now the maxx will drop in 3 months, if you wait and get the maxx, something better will drop the next month.... Lol

It should be RAZR never...lulz... From what I see the maxx looks nice, but knowing Moto, the RAZR Maxx 3 is only a couple months away...

Make a list of 'Must Haves' for new device. Then, how's the phone feel in hand? Screen? Build quality? Favorite Dev Support? Then decide. What else is there? We can 3 month are tushy's to death. Electronics industry is moving at an incredible pace, enough to drive you crazy if you let it. Go through your checklist, choose, then buy the F'n thing and start having fun with it, whatever it is.

If the Rzr is the only phone you would want then I would suggest waiting at least a month to see what happens. I really don't think it's going to take 3 months for them to push it. You can say well something new is always around the corner and why wait but in your case if you don't want anything else then why not get the better version.

I don't want really the latest bad boy on the block, I realize that will never happen. If it is the version the Chinese already got I hope it won't take too long to come out.

Yea I would give it a little more time. Because the way motorola is pumping out phones right now I don't think it'll be too long.

I'm a little bit in same boat except I got my Razr last week. My plan (ha ha ha) is to see if any further info leaks on the Razr Maxx or not before the special holiday extended return period ends (Jan. 15th). If I get enough info on the Maxx by that time that makes it look like a sweeter choice, I'll return my Razr and save the upgrade I used to get it for the Maxx. Still have my "old" Droid X for backup purposes, to ride me out if I need to wait a bit. If not enough info on Maxx by Jan. 15th, I think the Razr is an outstanding device and once we get ICS, all the betterester! Nexus - ICS = we've already seen that.
