    Haven't owned mine for very long, but it has so far been definitely superior to the gs3 I had briefly.

    Just a caveat, I use two lines, an iPhone 5 and an Android device (now, on the M)

    Versus GS3:

    - frame rate in general use is much higher, from opening to app drawer to using flipboard. Actually, flipboard is smooth like an iPhone, though not as touch responsive.

    - display is twice as bright! And shows a much more accurate white.

    - battery life is a bit better

    - way better build quality

    Same issues:

    Sound has background hiss

    Not as great:

    Lower resolution and screen size. Both have visible pixels so this is kind of a wash as they're both inferior to iPhone displays in nearly all categories (viewing angle, color reproduction etc).

    Red bleed on side, slight green bleed on other side - an AMOLED pentile thing I assume

    Awful camera

    Half the storage

    In some ways, the razr M comes closest to the feel of the smoothness of an iPhone, with great battery life and build quality well. It's still not really in the same league, but for the price, I dare say the important qualities make it a better phone than the GS3. Just don't try to take any important pictures with it.

    The HD solves most of those issues. The framerate is also better because Motorola tried to keep it pretty close to stock android.
