If you don't want to wait or are already with Verizon, there is the Droid Razr Maxx, a 4-3-inch screen monster with a huge battery Motorola says will last 20 hours of talk time. It has a 3,000 mAh battery compared to the Galazy Note's 2,500 mAh. That's significant because as big as the Droid Razr Maxx is, the Galaxy Note is even bigger. It features a whopping 5.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with superior resolution. Even with a bit smaller of a battery and AT&T's 4G LTE support, the Galaxy Note does as well as any mobile device with today's battery technology. The Note also has a companion stylus you can use to scribble with, a handy add-on you may find yourself ditching a tablet computer for. That's likely another reason why the Note is so large, just to further blur the line between phone and tablet (phablet?).
Samsung Galaxy Note comes with a super thin design, 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, 16 gigabytes of storage, microSD card reader and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Droid Razr Maxx has a qHD display with 960x540p resolution, 16 gigabytes of storage, 4G LTE capability, mini-HDMI port and expandable memory up to 32 GB (16 GB card pre-installed). We recommend the Droid Razr Maxx because battery life is just too important for mobile these days. Both devices are hard to beat, though, so give them both a hands-on demo before you decide. Tell us in the comments if you think tablets and smartphones should be kept separate or if you like them to be combined (more or less).
