Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD Specs Review

0. phoneArena 05 Sep 2012, 15:12 posted on

Motorola's new DROID RAZR MAXX HD is an impressive device any way you look at it. It has a relatively compact body, great specs, and an enormous battery to keep the juice flowing longer than what you can expect from your typical smartphone...

OMG what a good comment counter!
And I agree!
How this is not good enough??
It's like SGSIII on steroids, especially in terms of battery life and beauty, design, quality of end production.
In fact, I have recently hold and played with couple of SGSIII devices and I think scumsung should be ashamed of what they are selling as flagship device. It felt so cheap in hand like one of those chinese knockoffs...

How can anyone say this phone isn't good enough? The only explanation that is feasible is someone being jealous they no longer have the latest and greatest. This phone possesses everything the best anything currently out there has to offer and then some. It ups the ante with slimming (width and depth) of the competition, offers superior build quality and most importantly a battery that puts others to shame. I have the original Maxx and can say I'd still buy that over the others if the HD were not available simply because I can take advantage of using it as an all-around gadget (music, GPS, browser, games, organizer) that a smartphone is supposed to be without having to worry about the juice running out or carrying around a power supply with me. Even better, I can actually be glad my phone is 4G since I don't have to dread the it's appetite for power.

my dad's MAXX can last 2 days on a charge with it's 3300mAh battery but this thing uses a processor half the size as the OMAP4 in the MAXX. it's going to have RIDICULOUS battery life.

Since JB dropped, has your Dad noticed a difference in bat. life on his Rzr Maxx?

he doesn't have JB. going from GB to ICS there was a 15% increase in battery life for my Razr so i would imagine that a similar change happened to the updated MAXX as well.

gs3? over this?
even if the specs were identical, this is Motorola build quality.

even gsm radio is much stronger on moto
but sgs3 has bigger screen than razr ;)

the size difference is really negligible and so is the difference in pixel density... ;)

pixel density is better and cpu is faster, also little better battery life and camera, simply newer phone (I was and iam talking about orginal razr (not hd))

I'm impressed with the software polish of SGS3 something I wished for the current Razr Maxx. so it's still a 50/50.

I've made up my mind. I'm going to have to figure out a way to afford this.

I was just thinking that. This thing bests my nexus in almost every way (well my nexus is 9 monts old, what do you expect). And that battery, oh man.

That battery is really attracting me, as well as knowing that JB runs great on my Atrix, which only has 2/3rds the processing power. And that internal memory...WITH a memory card slot...

GIMME. NOW.

I'm gonna wait to see what HTC is gonna be offering. If there's is 5 inchs at full hd and ips, then I might just pass this one by, depending on the cpu in the new HTC phablet. I'm gonna guess that HTC is gonna have a better camera than Motorola's.

It would have even better battery life if we could switch batterys....WHY MOTO? -____-

The note 2 has 3100mah battery and is removable. A 4000+mah would be outright impressive for the new Maxx.

Spec wise it's very decent. But I prefer Samsung, LG sticking with removable battery in slim form factor. No matter how good the battery is it's going to die eventually. Other than beefier battery, it's equivalent of One X, GS3.

Also timing wise, this should have come out already. iPhone 5 with quad A6, LTE is going to be unveiled next week and all media focus will be on it for a while whether you like or not. Then LG Optimus G, new HTC 5" phablet, Note 2 are all coming soon with even more monster spec by the time Razr HD is released. Releasing it just before Holiday is too late, IMO.

If they release it on the holidays, they would face the wrath of the nexus devices. I agree on the removable battery part. It is a known fact that batteries have charge life cycles.

Just in case anyone was wondering, i have just received the razr maxx hd in my store for a display (we do not have the phyisical phone yet) but the price has already been established. It will be released at 199.99 and will be coming out very very soon; like i said we just received the display. While playing with the display the jellybean 4.1 OS is smoother than butter, the graphics on the phone are stellar as well. The screen size is larger than that of the S3 and with the new and improved OS i would highly recommend going with the Razr Maxx HD over the Galaxy s3. Of course they are both great products but with the larger screen, new OS, and the extended battery life i feel that the Maxx HD is a better buy.
