I'm buying a new phone on Verizon in the next few weeks and am torn as to if I should go with the DROID MAXX or the Note 3. I want a big screen but battery life is important. The MAXX is said to have one of the best batteries out there at the moment, but it doesnt have expandable microsd. I like the larger screen of the Note 3 but i doubt the battery will last as long as the MAXX and i love the IR blaster. As far as specs and features go, what do you think would be better? Keep in mind that I want to root whichever i do get, and put a custom ROM on it, preferably AKOP. Keeping all this in mind and that i could get an extra battery or whatever, do you think the note 3 will be worth it for the larger screen (even if ill probably never use the sPen. I cant think of anything else that would be relevant to me, software wise i can make the phones practically the same. Any questions that will help you suggest the right device for me, please ask and i appreciate any help/advice as to helping me chose a phone. Thank you!
