Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD comes with
Just like last year, Motorola is making a souped-up version of its RAZR HD, the RAZR MAXX HD. This year it has the HD after its name, hinting that Moto is finally joining the high-res screen party, but will upgrade where it matters again - the battery.

The Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD will sport the same 4.7" Super AMOLED HD screen as its non-Maxx version (what, Samsung is lending those to others now?), and dual-core Snapdragon S4, but will sport a huge 3, 300mAh battery, just like last year. 

This will allow it the impressive 13 hours of video playback, 21 hours of talk time, 10 hours of streaming video and 27 hours of streaming music over Verizon's LTE network. Here is the full specs rundown from Motorola:

Naturally, it is a bit thicker than the RAZR HD, but given that the latter is sub-9mm, it shouldn't be much of a tradeoff. It also packs 32GB of internal memory, making it a truly flagship Android device. We can't wait to handle the Maxx HD in a moment, as it sports the same great design features its predecessor had, like Kevlar chassis elements. The phone is arriving for Verizon's LTE network, with pricing and availability to be released at a later date.

This definitely is a great device fro 2012 to have. I bet the radio, and battery in this is superior to anything on the market right now. Glad to see Moto back on its game.

Still on contract with AT&T, and AT&T has coverage where my friends need it.

However, I have the option of opening an employee plan with Verizon. I may just do so.

I WANT THIS PHONE.

So it has a metal and kevlar body, plus a huge 3300mAh batt, a big 4.7inch display, 8MP CAMERA, 32gb built-in mem PLUS a SD slot YET it manages to be BOTH thinner AND lighter than the brick Lumia920?
Excellent job MOTO, THAT is innovation, value for money and a great mix of functionality in one, Nokia should take some pointers from Moto. :)

No Jelly Bean? That is disappointing.

I wish it came with 2GB of RAM. Why they left it at 1GB is a mystery to me.

I asked myself that too, but the fact that there is no custom skin on top (there is but extremely little) not much ram might be used except for all that vzw bloatware

the list of pre-loaded applications was actually quite tiny.

I Agree that the custom skin is almost NIL... But just imagine about the dozens (out of 4 dozens that came with this phone) of BigRed's bloats running in background... Further the 1280x720 display RAM is shared with the 1GB DDR3 RAM only...

the MAXX HD is the clear choice here and i see it does actually have a HDSA Display, that's a little surprising but it's good to keep the same display type going for the Razr Enthusiasts. now the only question for me is Black or White...

I would sell my maxx right now if the Maxx HD had 2GB of Ram and JB out of the box.

RazrMAXX-HD is a good device without a doubt... But it is NOT a irresistible upgrade for we OG MAXX users..

And reg RAM and JB (NO chance for custom JB ROM due to Military-grade ENCRYPTED bootloader) out of box, I completely agree with you here...

you can flash CM10 on it if you so desire you know... xD

The dealbreaker for this phone to me is the locked bootloader. Yes, there are some ROMs such as the UNofficial CM10, but it's a pain in the @ss to perform the installation and the amount of customization (not to mention modding community) is highly limited. That, the non-removable battery, and the delay for the Maxx HD version makes me glad I got the GN when it came out. With custom ROMs and kernels, my power consumption is even better than the Razr (divide the total battery life by the mAh value). Besides, I have a secondary battery that gives me more overall battery life if I need it.

31. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5540; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)


I don't see how. I have a Razr and a GN and the process for flashing ROM's is really not so different. I know how far flashing new kernels can go but you can have a fully functional Jelly Bean ROM, it's not impossible. there's a lot of exaggerating that goes on when it comes to locked bootloaders.

Well, still on contract for 13 more months... which, if my math is correct, should put me right in line for the Razr Maxx HD 2.
