Great phone, well built, light weight, fast on LTE & WiFi. It's Android, so anything you wish it did you can download from the market. With the JellyBean update, bloatware isn't an issue. Phone can get a little hot while inside the windshield mount, but that's to be expected.

Better than I expected...
MasterSyrron has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
When I switched from Sprint Motorola Photon Q to Verizon, I expected to get the Motorola Droid 4 (comparable device). My friend pointed out the RAZR MAXX and I went to PhoneArena.com to research.
Ever since I've had this phone in my hands, I've loved it. After the Jelly Bean update, the phone was even better. I have dropped this device in a shallow pool of water (sink while shaving) and had no issues. It's more durable and rugged than expected.
I highly recommend this device to ANYONE!
Once You Go MAXX You'll Never Go Back

I switched to the RAZR MAXX from my DROID 4 because the battery life was too short and the screen was too small. I'm a heavy user and I get about twice the battery life on the MAXX. So if you're the kind of person that hates running out of battery this is this phone for you.
GREAT battery life and very good specs, features and root friendly too!

A phone with good specs and a battery that can go all day on a single charge. Lots of features to use software and hardware wise. Root friendly and lots of ROMs to choose from. Features that made this the choice for me was it was the only phone with a battery that can last all day, Gorilla Glass, waterproof coating on the inside,dual core, HDMI output, slender profile with great looks too! All in one phone!

The only thing going for this phone is the battery.
I can't believe with all the hype of Android being "open" how locked down this phone is. Locked down by Motorola and Verizon.
Loaded with crapware and the horrible Motoblur interface slows the phone down and requires the huge battery. No wonder it crashes so often.
The phone is uncomfortable to hold with an awkward and too-large shape and size.
The pentile display is very pixelated and cheap looking.
This is a phone to avoid.

Awesome... except for the camera
techie123 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
great 4G phone with amazing battery. display is also great (not sure why the hype about HD resolution - I cannot tell the difference side-by-side between the S3 and this phone - I even think the iPhone screen with its "retina" display looks somewhat washed out compared to this phone)

Droid RAZR MAXX - I turn iPhone users with this device
AJmeBOY has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I could not be happier with this phone. I have converted several iPhoners to Android by showing off the simplicity and functionality of Android. I also successfully convinced my company to deploy Droids to the staff in replacement of BBs.
Outstanding Phone!! Don't Pass This One Up!
gtrxman has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
To me, this is the perfect phone. People will argue about specs and processor speed, but what really matters is real world usability. Sure, some chips are faster, and some cameras are better, but the reality of the matter is that you're watching your video on a 4" screen. How Hi-Def is that? Who actually watches anything other than a You Tube video or two on their phone? Does it really matter if your internet loads in 1 millisecond faster in a test environment? Way more important is real 4G service and signal strength.
Spill a drink... Need to use your phone in the rain? No worries.
I can take this phone off the charger at 6AM and still have plenty of battery left at 11PM. Kudos to Motorola for recognizing that a phone is a tool that should make our lives less complicated, not more. I don't ever worry about running out of juice and I no longer need to carry around chargers and extra batteries.

Not bad for a Jellybean phone.
mvanorder has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I used this phone for two years before the battery finally gave out. The last 6 months of it's life the HDMI port had to be disabled every time it was rebooted because the phone got overheated in my back pocket while I was working and fried the HDMI. Up until this, the phone worked well. I replaced the screen on it twice since it cracked easily(thankfully the replacement screen for this phone is dirt cheap).
I used and overused this phone. It worked well for my personal media player, plugging directly to the TV for movies, and teathering(USB and WiFi) to provide my laptop internet anywhere.

Like all things Motorola, it is vastly overrated
deaconhound has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Got this phone as a replacement for my last Motorola clunker, and it is only a slight improvement. First, as with all things Verizon, it is LOADED with bloatware. When I cut it on in the AM, sometimes it takes as long as 5 min to get my emails up because it is busy downloading updates for apps I neither asked for nor need.
The processor is painfully slow.
The battery burns up much quicker than advertised - regular use on the phone during the day and it is shot in 9 hours, tops.
The keypad constantly bogs down and falls behind the fingerstrokes on the keypad. Often the touchscreen isnt responsive. A few times the phone has simply shut off or refused a charge for no reason, randomly.
Pluses are the screen quality and call clarity, this thing does not drop calls. However, while the call reception is fantastic, the internet and browsing is pretty bad. It is relatively light weight. I know people complain about the camera but I have actually found it to be pretty good.

I got this phone in Mexico a month ago and I'm very satisfied. It's not as expensive as I thought and it combines the best of every smartphone: long battery life, big screen, great camera, microSD capable,etc. Totally worth it.

Didn't last long before it crapped out
beara has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I didn't have this phone long, maybe 4 months, before it started over heating and dying constantly... I thought it was supposed to have that extended life battery... when you spend this much on a phone you expect it to work longer. Plus I hate how when Verizon sends you a lemon, they replace it with a "refurbished" lemon. NOT IMPRESSED!

I love this phone. Battery is the best of any phone I ever had. I don't think I have ever run the battery down. Reception is great. I traded it my nexus galaxy for this phone and love it.
No real negatives

Exchanged my Samsung Galaxy NEXUS for the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX
JollyChollie has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The DROID RAZR MAXX also has the Following Cool Features. When unlocking the Screen, the Choice to Turn the Ringer Sound Off is Given Right Away by Sliding a Virtual Button, (this is great for meetings or for Church). And the Telephone has a very
beautiful Dark Blue fading to a Lighter Royal Blue while calling, with my Photo's Displayed in the Right Proportion, (they were too big and distorted on the Galaxy Nexus by Samsung). Phone Colors are nice thoroughout the Dialer, and Text Inputs~!

not so good review
mbower9999 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
2 died in a months time. Verizon sent me this phone after good reviews to them. However, the dumb thing died after four days to me, and the second one died after three days in my humble arms. I will never be satisified after that without an apology from Motorola. and a thank you from Verizon for my patience and perseverance.

From RAZR, to Droid, to Droid RAZR MAXX.
psychotech has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I cannot believe I thought of getting any other phone. The RAZR MAXX has improved on all that I loved about the original RAZR and Droid, and brought in so many more innovations. Other phones may rival it's build quality, design, speed, and performance, but I believe Motorola has set a new standard awfully high as far as battery capacity goes without hindering physical design much.

Finally a smart phone that lasts 2 days without needing to charge. Reminds me of phones before they got smart. This battery should be standard. Had the HTC incredible and loved it but it was time for an upgrade.

Thank You MOTO!!
DJORDAN has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I'm truly impressed with this phone! It's faster than the Galaxy Nexus, which I owned and sold. ICS is nice but over rated. Razr Maxx battery life for me is very good at 12-15 hours; I know it says 21 hours; but I'm not a heavy user, I'm an extreme user. With Galaxy Nexus, I used two of three extended batteries everyday and sometimes putting in third, that's 4200mAh plus. Razr Maxx with 3300mAh getting through the day and not even using the Smart Action proves to be better. The only con for me with this phone is it not having a (HD Screen 720x1280) In fact, had it released with HD and ICS, it would have killed Galaxy Nexus. Out of the box true proformer - Razr Maxx!!! Phone for easy customizing to proform - Galaxy Nexus.
In every way this phone for me, has out done every other Verizon LTE phone - EVERY! (I've owned them all!)

Made a great phone even better!
aworldisfalling has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The RAZR MAXX is everything I've looked for in a phone. I find holding this better than holding the original RAZR. And this phone is free on the dark spots that plague the screen of the original RAZR. In my opinion this is the epitome of what an Android phone should be. With a battery that outlasts the iPhone (i am in a 3g only area). The second day I left wifi, and bluetooth, and all 3 gps services on, streamed an hour of music and 30 minutes of video, both over 3g. I put the battery to the test the 2nd day I had it and 16 hours later I still had 40%. I love this phone.

Best Battery Life Ever & Not A Single Complaint To Be Had!
gregoryxandrew has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I absolutely love this phone - I've always been an iPhone guy, but the battery life got me to switch. I loveee it!! Battery life is astounding! Last me (very heavy user) more than 24 hours with 4G, Wifi, Bluetooth on etc and using it non stop! I love it!
Don't hesitate on this one - it's worth it!!!

MOTOROLA RAZR MAXX - ITS THE BEST OF ALL!!!
MYTHiKAL has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
To who posted a review score of 3.. Stop dropping your phones in the Toilet.. LOL
FINALLY!!! I got me the Perfect SmartPhone with the "BEST" Wireless Provider in the area. “Verizon”
I tend to change wireless companies veeeeery often, in fact I have a reputation about it already.. LOL.. But after going to one company and then the next. I finally stop worrying about getting more for the money in regards to unlimited everything like I was getting with Sprint, or Like I was just getting with ATT’s rollover minutes and all, and Finally made the leap back to VERIZON. Verizon by far may be the most expensive, but,, with the combination of an Outstanding Network and My new Bad-Ass Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX I cannot be any happier right at this moment.
My wife was extremely happy as well, after she compared the new iPhone and the Droid RAZR, she could not believe how stupid the iPhone is in comparison and decided to go with a White-Motorola RAZR herself.. I kinda of miss my Huge Screen with my Samsung Skyrocket, but the difference is not much after realizing there are a lot more positives about the change..
