Mighty Apple iPhone brought down by Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX at Verizon says analyst
According to analyst Anil Doradia, the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX, with its long lasting 3300mAh battery, is outselling the Apple iPhone at Verizon during the quarter ending this month. According to the analyst, this is the first quarter since the launch of the OG Apple iPhone, that the device was not the top selling model at any North American carrier where it was offered. The appeal of the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX is its battery, which is the highest rated cell found as original equipment in any smartphone.

Doradia says that this is not the result of potential Apple iPhone buyers at Verizon holding off for the next model of the iconic device. After all, the Apple iPhone 4S remains the top selling smartphone at AT&T and Sprint. The analyst says that in the next few months, there will be the usual pullback in iPhone sales as potential buyers wait for the 6th generation model to be announced. He also notes that the Apple iPhone is up against tough competition from 4G LTE enabled models which is why he says that the new Apple iPhone, with its expected 4G LTE connectivity, will be a "catalyst" for Apple. As we recently mentioned, the next Apple iPhone could launch as soon as early September in an attempt to push sales into this fiscal year.

For those curious, behind the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX and the Apple iPhone 4S at Verizon is the Samsung GALAXY Nexus.

Apple user are always that smart unlike Android that just buys anything that looks like the iPhone to save some penny despite its lagginess, uncertain update to jellybean, compatibility to all apps, short battery life due to unoptimized software/hardware for the marketing stunt of "more cores = better"..

They are now holding out for the almightly iPhone 5!

Oh you so high, thinking you're smart and sh*t. Your statement is so delusional I don't even know where to start. Perhaps someone can knock some sense into this guy? Your statement just threw you from troll to stupid.

You do know the RAZR MAXX's battery kicks the iPhone 4S's ass.

Let the iRationalization begin!

Perhaps we should be rationalizing why an 8 month old phone is just now being outsold (on the US's largest carrier no less).

I'm waiting on the new Razr HD, personally. I think it will be a great little device.

Take a hint from this, Verizon. Release the damned RAZR HD now, not in two months. I was shocked at how thin and light the MAXX was with that size battery.

Yeah, seriously take a hint. I suspect the profit margins on the RAZR HD will be better than those for the iPhone 4S (or for that matter, the 5). VZW, you have a window to make some serious coin. Don't screw it up.

Finally! The RAZR MAXX deserves this spot.
