Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX official, coming in the following weeks
posted by Ray S. / Jan 09, 2012, 2:16 PM
Anyways, let's get right to the point and see what the fuss is all about - the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX will be capable of delivering the spectacular 21 hours of talk-time! Wohoo, that's certainly a lot more than what we're used to nowadays, although we're almost sure this is the maximum talk-time when connected to a 2G network. However, we'll have to wait for the detailed specs to come out in order to be sure.
And yeah, we mention there will be a catch to all this. Unfortunately, Motorola couldn't keep the phenomenal 7.1mm thickness of the DROID RAZR, and so the RAZR MAXX has a profile which is slightly thicker, at 8.99mm. Well, that didn't hurt - it's still one very thin phone, that's for sure!
The Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX release on Verizon should happen sometime in the following weeks, bundled with a 32GB microSD card, and all of that will be yours for $299.99 with two-year contract. Congratulations!
- Display 4.3" 540 x 960 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor TI OMAP4430, Dual-core, 1200 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 3300 mAh(21.50h talk time)

I believe 8.99 is still thinner than the iPhone, though just barely. I would probably get the original Razr over this. Still, it's a nice option for those who need the better battery.

I have the RAZR, it doesn't bug me at all that this was released, I am curious however, I get THREE FULL days (72 hours) out of my RAZR on normal use, I wonder what kind of battery life a RAZR MAXX would get..

This is great! The more "flagship" phones Verizon releases, the sooner the Rezound will be lowered to a decent price.

BattleBrat; you get Three Days? 72 hours? Wow . . . I consistently get a day and a half and LOVE IT. I consider myself a pretty moderate user; I have many apps, three different e-mail accounts from different sources, calendar, Facebook, news, calls, etc. I think the RAZR is hands down the best phone available today . . . would better battery life be good, yes, but I love the thin-thin form as well. Barely feel it in my pocket.

Can either of you tell me how you get that. I get maybe a day (6am-11pm) if I am lucky and I only have lte when I am at my house and I leave background syncing and gps off all the time.

The 3 tools I use on the RAZR to control and extend battery life are: 1) Moto Widget Toggle;Power Control - easy way to control the on/off of Wifi, Bludethooth, GPS, Sync, and Screen Brightness 2) Smart Actions; really great power saver and I'm only running 3 currently the Low Battery Saver, Battery Extender, and Nighttime Battery Saver (love it and it works) 3) Moto Task Manager which will automatically turn-off any app I designate after not running for 2 minutes. I run 4G all the time; I do have the 4G Toggle switch but find I only use it when I travel a bit, never in my home or work area (we have strong 4G here). One other thing, notifications drain battery life tremendously . . . I've had many smart phone and when I setup this one I decided I'm checking my phone so much daily anaayway that I will only setup notifications for those apps which are really important to me. I have about 4 app notifications turned on (e-mail accounts, calendar, etc.); down from 12-14. I manually push my news, Facebook, weather, and others.

DROID RAZR™ to MAXX or not to MAXX, that is the question! Quite frankly, I knew about the DROID RAZR™ MAXX when I purchased my RAZR™ on December 5, 2011. I was even able to test out that ICS Galaxy Necrosis on December 4th; the day before buying my RAZR™. Even as I noticed on my receipt that, 'Purchases made between November 15 and December 28 may returned by January 15, 2012' (and, I fall within that window), I wouldn't trade my RAZR™ for a RAZR™ MAXX if you gave me 34 hours of battery life. I have no issues with my battery, I have no issues with 4G LTE in NYC, I love my Lapdock 100 and I love the HD Dock (which, incidentally, will not work with a thicker phone. I know this because the "Officially Compatible" RAZR™ cases do not work with the HD Dock, how the hell will a thicker phone work??). LOVE MY RAZR™ don't care to MAXX out.

So basically this is the same phone, but with a better battery.? Why didn't they just release this phone from the beginning.? Can't wait until I take marketing classes because I need to learn fast.

I was looking at the press release of the MAXX... Purple is one of the choice colors??? Not sure how that would look.

I think with the extra thickness, it would be double the battery, so im guessing around 3000-3500 mAh, which is just great!!!, even at that thickness its still the thinnest LTE phone on verizon, thinner than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus

why not! original droid razr isnt the thinest phone in the world anymore anyways, might as well be double battery! if anyone has ever seen a teardown of the droid razr, you see the battery is so thin, so naturally u start thinking, who cares, if its thin, gimme double battery! the camera hump in my opinion ruins it anyways!!!!
