By now you probably know that the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G Android smartphone is basically a thicker twin sibling of the Motorola Droid Razr 4G that was designed as the thinnest handset ever made. When it came out, the Motorola Droid Razr was all the rage with its ridiculously thin profile, and the handset packs some awesome high-end features. However, a skinny handset meant that the battery life could have been better. Motorola went back to the drawing board, and created the Droid Razr MAXX, basically the exact same device as the Motorola Droid Razr but with an 85% larger battery.
This means that the Droid Razr MAXX now delivers what is easily the best battery performance of any 4G smartphone. Off of a single charge of the 3,300 mA battery, the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX user can expect at least 21.5 hours of talk time, or a full 15 hours of video playback. That is more than enough to allow for an entire day’s use without worrying about finding a charger, and the handset also delivers the same high-speed processor, high-resolution screen, extensive RAM memory allotment and high resolution video capture that was offered by the Droid Razr.
But what some Android smartphone shoppers don’t realize is that the handset, when ported into the optional Motorola Lapdock 100 or HD Station made specifically for the Droid Razr MAXX, can also operate as a Laptop or Desktop PC. The Lapdock 100 provides a 10.1 inch display, full keyboard and track pad, and five hour battery. When using the HD station accessory, an additional three USB ports and HDMI port are accessible, allowing the user Desktop PC functionality when the Droid Razr MAXX HD station is connected to a monitor or HDTV, keyboard and mouse.
And on top of the PC functionality offered by the Droid Razr MAXX, the skinny handset (0.35 inches or 8.9 mm thick) delivers 256 pixels per inch for an overall screen resolution of 540 x 960 pixels to the 4.3 inch Super AMOLED screen. Visuals are rendered in more than 16 million unique colors, and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass offers scratch resistance. The Kevlar and aluminum coated chassis on the handset is splashproof, and the dual core central processor has been clocked at 1.2 GHz.
1.0 GB of RAM memory is on board, and a 4G-best 32 GB of storage is offered out-of-the-box. That includes 16 GB built in and a removable 16 GB microSD card, and the rear facing 8.0 megapixel camcorder offers high resolution video capture at 1,080P HD. A 1.3 megapixel chat cam is located on the front of the Droid Razr MAXX, and a proprietary YouTube video player joins a built-in music player in the multimedia package on board.
