After I think 11 thumbs down votes, the PA website collapses the post, so the thumbs down count may not register much higher after the post collapse occurs.

When I was in the market for the original RAZR, if the RAZR MAXX had been available, I probably would have gone with the MAXX. But a 3300 mAh battery is not reason enough for me to unload my RAZR for a RAZR MAXX. I typically get through a day with generally 50 to 60% battery remaining by the time I plug in the charger before I go to bed.

Great option for someone just now considering a RAZR, however.

So is this literally the exact same phone as the praised original razr? I want to buy it, but I am wondering if I should wait for reviews just to be sure

I really wish Verizon would bring back one year contracts. Two years is just too long with a phone these days and I'm not paying $650 off contract. A nice middle ground would be nice.

Razr Maxx looks to be a great device with 3300 mah battery...... But why moto is launching devices with small upgrades....??? now when Hd screen is becoming norm, then what is the use of launching Razr S or Maxx with just improved battery........ They already had the more improved version of Razr with 12 mp camera and Hd screen, which they launched in China. Then why launching upgraded version of Razr only with improved battery.....??? Wouldn't it be a great device if it was launched with improved battery, Hd screen and 12mp camera......... Cmon moto stop being Apple...... :(

Had the Razr for 3 days ($199.99 16 GB version without microSD card). Had to plug it in on the road yesterday, so I went by VZW store today.
Just swapped it for the Maxx for $100.00. Maxx Came with the 16 GB card, and the battery is @ 45% more (3300mAh vs.1780mAh). Not much heavier than original Razr. The camera bump is gone. Was leveled out the whole way down for the additional battery space.
Love the phone!!!

I wish Verizon offers the extended battery pack like they did for LG chocolate. I'm ready to pay some fee if I can get the battery & back panel upgraded.
