Would like to trade my 3 month old Galaxy Nexus w/a two-piece Incipio black case and screen protectors for a Razr Maxx...let me know if anyone is interested! Thanks!

If you don't mind me asking, why trade a superior phone for a Razr Maxx? is it for the battery life?

ya I'd like the longer battery life, but may have found an alternative- an extended battery for the Nexus...

The extended battery for the Nexus will give you more battery life but not as much as the RAZR Maxx will, but you will be happy with the extended battery for the Nexus and plus it doesn't make it look that much bigger.
In part why your battery life sucks on the Nexus is because of the 4.0 operating system, it has more things running in the back-round and is more live app that cause the battery to drain faster, once the RAZR Maxx gets the 4.0 update the battery life
won't be that great either.
Also you should be able to get a extended battery for the Nexus for $25(not sure if the promo is still running)
I know this cause I work for Verizon.

Just my 2 cents.

I have the Nexus and it does lack in the battery department. With the 2100 extended battery and disabling LTE when not in use helps. I run mine with a custom rom and kernel and its bearable. I use my standard battery as a backup.

Also the Nexus was installed with a cheaply made LTE chip set so it does a lot of 4G-3G switching so it cause the battery to drain as well, disabling the LTE does help a lot and also rooting your Nexus you can get rid of a lot of bloatware which can help save battery life as well.

I went ahead and opted for the extended battery since it was only ~$25...lets see if there's a noticeable difference!
