Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX hands-on

Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX hands-on
Let’s be serious here, we can’t help but reiterate that the Motorola DROID RAZR was one of the best looking smartphones released last year. For all the stellar hardware it’s hiding within its body, it’s utterly amazing to even believe for a moment that its construction and design was possible – yet, Motorola remarkably did it! However, one of the biggest complaints about the device, which is the same with all 4G LTE smartphones we’ve checked out, is that battery life is abysmally poor. In fact, most devices last just a tiny bit more than 8 hours. Well, that’s where the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX comes to mind!

To put it lightly, the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX is the Motorola DROID RAZR, but it’s packing an insanely large 3,300 mAh battery – rated for over 21 hours of talk time! Even though it utilizes the same solid design of the DROID RAZR, the DROID RAZR MAXX is expanded to a thickness of 0.35” (8.99mm). So yeah, it doesn’t retain the same thickness, but nevertheless, it’s still undeniably thin and uniform by today’s standards. Beyond that, we still adore that it employs only the best materials out there with its construction – like its Kevlar back, diamond cut aluminum accents, and stainless steel core.

Sharing the same hardware as its slimmer sibling, the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX polarizes our eyes with its always magnificent 4.3” qHD Super AMOLED display. Furthermore, some of the other commonalities include a 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor, 8-megaixel auto-focus camera, 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, and 4G LTE connectivity. However, it’s worth noting it’s been amped with a total storage capacity of 32GB – broken down to 16GB of internal storage and a 16GB microSD card.

As a whole, there isn’t much new with the handset, but we’re sure that some people are going to be relieved knowinig that it’s packing one hefty battery inside of its body – without turning it into a hefty phone. Verizon is pegging this one to have the same $299.99 on-contract price as its sibling, but its exact release day is still unknown. Nonetheless, we’re certain it’ll be here soon than you think!
