Thanks for your participation! :)

Frank Tiberius Marte Jr Gigantic Battery!
Doug Koenig Galaxy S3 here, gone 18 hours on battery with medium use... Thats a long enough day for me, and it blows the doors off the MAXX... Win Samsung. (aftermarket battery would be sweet someday that fit in same size case)
Scott Smith Aaron, have you heard any rumor about Verizon maybe getting the Galaxy Note II?
Clifton H. Williams II Right now it's battery
MOe BAz Khalid Alatri
Huey Liggins Both. New features can only be enjoyed with battery life. Battery life can only be appreciated with great features to entertain you. But since android phones allow you to switch out batteries, features are more important. Look up anker batteries for almost any popular phone and you will find yourself enjoying your phone a lot more
Grzegorz Kaczkowski I like both phones but still my fav is Sammy
Eduardo Ordaz No bigger battery for me. My Vivid gets through the day.
Mujtaba Ali Ahmad Both please, thank you.
Jim Cronan Battery more important
Vicente Reyes For me it might be that I don't like the UI from Samsung, HTC, and a few others. Stock android is always going to be faster. Except on the nexus line of devices.
Vicente Reyes Roommate uses his reg razr throughout the day while at work and still has enough battery to call his friends in Hawaii for an hr. I myself use an ATRIX 2. The last razr I used was a razr v9 rofl.
Vicente Reyes Jelly bean
Vicente Reyes Why is everyone bashing Motorola razr when it already has close to stock ics? Lol its fast as the rest. Even the reg razr has alright battery life with ics and maybe even better when it gets Kelly bean
Nick Guerrero G The galaxy 3 is going to take it ;)
Chris Downs My gs3 lasts me all day with moderate use!
Zach Cline My friends galaxy s3 lasts nine hours in between charges.
Godswill Blinkston Odogwu bad ass, mobile, horrible battery...........
Aaron Dean Specs don't mean any thing if the phone won't last more than a few hours gs3
Arcadeon Knight Bigger, enlarged, over-grown, gigantic, huge, massive, battery!!!!
Jonathan Maner LOL this has got to be a joke. RAZR maxx pales in comparison to the s3 performance wise. Battery is solid, too. Can Make it through an entire day easy with moderate to heavy use.
Jose Angel Santiago S3...motorolas UI....Zzzzzzzzzz!!!
Josue Landaverde I give it to Motorola on this one.. the galaxy 3 was very disappointing.. sure the Droid razr doesn't have the newest features but its still a very good phone! Personally just cause its newer doesn't always mean its better. This is one of those times.
Jose Angel Santiago New features...you can always buy an extended battery.
Joernie Berrios Being able to unlock the Bootloader and have root access!
Lordh Ozn Razr the best!!
Ian Baylon Both, why would I want a phone with gingerbread with a lot of battery life or a JB phone with a small battery.
Carlos Flores Acosta I switched back to my BlackBerry 9780 because of its awesome battery life..
Jesus Martinez If Samsung comes out with a bigger battery then the S3 will be a big winner
Darrien Glasser Not necessary. Running MIUI ICS and my battery life is practically unlimited. I attempted to do a battery calibration but I sadly couldn't wait that long. Standby I get about 3-4 days. With semi light use I can get about 30 hours. And that's with a stock battery!
Gary Brown When it comes to an Android phone, battery life is very important.
Steve C Trevino I'm surprised phone manafactures haven't start doing what motorola has done with bigger batteries that actually is a big selling point if you think about it.
