Should you happen to rock a Motorola Droid Razr Maxx for your mobile weapon of choice, battery life is the least of your concerns. That being said, the handset has by far the longest talk time, video playback time and 4G streaming time in any Verizon handset that we have tested. In fact, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is the first 4G LTE handset that can last through a whole day without the battery getting drained before the day is out.
In a couple of tests we ran, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx was able to come up with almost 17 hours of continuous 3G talk time, 14 hours of video playback with the display’s brightness cranked up to the max, and almost 7 hours of continuous audio streaming via a 4G LTE connection. The reason behind the incredibly unbelievable battery life of the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is its massive 3300 mAh power pack which is definitely one of the largest we have seen on a smartphone.
However, battery life may be the claim to fame of the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx but it isn’t the only thing that the handset is good at. In fact, the handset is just as powerful as the Motorola Droid RAzr and we have the specs sheet of the handset coming right up to give you the nitty-gritty about the handset.
The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx reached official status when it was announced in January where the handset became available for purchase in the same month. Of course, we can’t expect the handset to be as anorexic as the Motorola Droid Razr due to its massive power pack but the handset is still slim at its dimensions of 130.7 x 68.9 x 9 mm despite this fact. It isn’t that hefty as well at its catch weight of 145 grams.
Under the hood, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx boasts of powerful components that make it the Motorola flagship handset that it is. Its operating system is powered by a Texas Instruments OMAP4430 chipset while the smoothness in its operations is courtesy of the combination of its dual-core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor and a full gigabyte of RAM. Storage space is pegged at 16GB with a preloaded 16GB microSD card included in its retails package for memory expansion. Its display is of the SuperAMOLED Advanced variety and has a diagonal of 4.3 inches and qHD resolution of 540 x 960 pixels while its camera department features a 1.3MP video chat camera out front and an 8MP autofocus shooter with LED flash bringing up the rear.
