Description

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.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

For each communication channel, the signals are encoded in a sequence known to the transmitter and the receiver for that channel. The foremost application is digital cellular phone technology from QUALCOMM that operates in the 800MHz band and 1.9GHz PCS band. CDMA phones are noted for their excellent call quality and long battery life.

  • Positioning:

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
