    The Razer Maxx is supposed to have the best battery life. It's not just talk either, IME.

    The comparison is only valid if your battery is non removable. Otherwise battery life really dosnt matter. For me my iPhones battery life isn't overly important with charging available where ever I go!

    It's only claim to fame is the large battery. It's a dual core 45nm that's going to be outdated very soon by 45nm Tegra 3 and 28nm Krait S4.

    I certainly don't think so. Just because a battery is removable doesn't mean the owner wants to have to carry a spare around. I know there are people that do that, but I would think they are in the minority.

    You really think the average consumer cares about what processer it has? I bet you most people that bought the 4S dont even know what dual core means.

    Exactly. Speed tests and benchmarks are for tech spec nerds and have about zero relevance in real world uses. I had the Galaxy Nexus for a few days and did real world tests in it with my Maxx. The Galaxy has a "superior" processor and beat the Maxx easily in all the benchmarks but big deal. Opening web pages, loading Youtube videos, launching apps...it was all the same for the most part. My Maxx actually loaded some webpages faster and got a few Netflix streams running faster. Your average customer doesn't care about processing speeds and benchmarks. What they do care about is battery life, build quality and how their phone works. The Maxx easily beats out current Samsung and HTC devices in battery life and build quality and one could also argue Blur is much more useful and less obtrusive than Sense and TouchWiz.

    You can get them for like $150 on Amazon I believe. Sucks cause I paid $300 at Verizon.

    I would also say something that the average consumer buying a device for personal use cares about perhaps even more then those three things is whether or not the device is "in fashion" and their friends and/or famous people are using it. Mobile phones these days are very much fashion accessories.

    I don't think iPhone has the best battery life, mine drained about 46% battery overnight last night with all apps cleared out of the multitasking tray. All I got was 3 fb notifications during the night

    I have a Nokia 5230 that's a couple of years old and it still doesn't need to be charged more than maybe once a week or less. I mostly use it for text messages and phonecalls but still.
