Pros Packs a lot into a very solid, quality package. Screen is enormous and the bezel is smaller than the previous Raxr Maxx. Totally flat back; overall high-end design. Powers up very quickly; 'Smart Actions' Motorola software could be useful.
Cons Froze once already - had to hit side buttons to restart. Not sure why the Maxx HD is $100 more than the non-Maxx HD. I don't need the 32GB memory, just the extra battery life. Camera definitely could use some help - maybe software will help?
Summary Very happy with phone overall thus far, but in full disclosure I was coming from a Droid X so I probably would have been happy with anything released since 2010.Used this for a good 72 hours now, personal and business use. Finding more cons to add than pros, but overall am very happy with the device overall.
I'll report more after I've used the phone for a full weekend. The fact it froze up on me within the first 8 hours is concerning. At the time all I was doing was installing applications from the Play market one at a time.

Screen is enormous but the utilization of the space is very poor. Google Search on the top of every homescreen can't be removed, icons are under-sized, icon spacing is wide, pictures of those being dialed are very small. Also with the screen, the top status bar is painfully small and under-emphasized despite being loaded with crucial information. Media volume through Bluetooth does not get loud enough. Camera is really terrible, extremely hopeful software can resolve grainy-ness and persistent darkness of shots. Will try some third-party apps soon.
Battery life is legit amazing, display at 100% brightness is a sight to behold. Speed is consistently impressive.
Hasn't frozen on me a second time! Just once that first day.
Pros Intuitive set up and fast.
Cons They have disabled moving apps to SD card. You can only use your internal memory for apps. BIG negative!!
Summary They have disabled moving apps to SD card. You can only use your internal memory for apps. BIG negative!!
Pros Battery life, Carbon shell, beautiful screen resolution, ease of use, call quality.
Cons Verizon bloatware for things I will never use.IMDb, Slacker, etc. Really Verizon why can't you leave well enough alone?
Summary Love the phone would highly recommend who wants a phone with good call quality and great battery life. Have had the phone since the week it released so I waited until now to review. Didn't want to start having issues and regret so this is a good 6 month or so long review.
Pros is has an ok battery life and is good some of the time.
Cons the data connection wont stay for more than 5 min at a time and keeps going white this phone isnt worth getting same as all the other droid phones the iphone doesnt do this.
Summary this phone is one of the worst phones ive had if your trying to watch youtube or netflix it keeps droping signal you normaly cant watch a 5 min vidio this phone sucks.
Pros Big Screen
Cons Google Voice Command does not work and the Android OS does not allow you to use any other application.
Android OS updates are pushed on you over and over again until you accept them.
Motorola tech support is unable to troubeshoot faulty OS software.
Summary I too really liked this phone (in 2012) until the Android OS update which took place a couple weeks ago. I would recommend avoiding this phone and probably all other Motorola phones since there are no fixes to the problems caused by the updated software.
