With a retail price much lower than those higher-priced recent Android phones which offer inferior battery life and data storage, the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX Android smartphone is arguably one of the best bargains on the entire Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network. No current 4G smartphone delivers more out-of-the-box, user accessible data storage space than the Droid Razr MAXX. And no one comes close to the 21.5 hours of talk time or 15 hours of video playback offered from a single charge of the handset’s battery.
With a sub-$100 price tag on contract currently, the handset also benefits from optional Motorola accessories which transform the Android smartphone into a 10.1 inch laptop, desktop PC or multimedia center, and hands-free, in-car GPS device. The Droid Razr MAXX 4G also delivers interior hardware which is protected by a splash resistant layer of nano coating, a display protected by a scratch and chip resistant layer of Corning Gorilla Glass, and a rugged Kevlar and aluminum coated body.
With 32 GB of user accessible data storage available out-of-the-box, in the form of a 16 GB microSD card and an additional 16 GB built into the handset, the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G owner has plenty of room for data and applications. The handset also offer simultaneous voice and data access on Verizon’s 4G LTE system in the United States, which was deemed the fastest and most reliable 4G network among all four US major wireless carriers by independent reviewer RootMetrics.
The handset debuted on January 26 of this year, delivering speeds up to 10 times faster than the Verizon Wireless 3G system. Borrowing the skinny motif of its slimmer twin, the Motorola Droid Razr 4G, the handset measures only 0.35 inches (8.99 mm) in thickness. The Super AMOLED Advanced screen runs 4.30 inches and delivers above average pixel density, at 256 pixels per inch. That results in an overall display resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, and standard capacitive, multitouch gestures are used to navigate the handset.
In the hardware package on board, the extreme battery life comes from a 3,300 mA cell, and a Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 microchip package is used to handle your requests and operations. That chip set is centered around a dual core 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 processor, and a separate PowerVR SGX540 GPU handles all graphics processing. 1.0 GB of RAM system memory is on board, and the rear facing 8.0 megapixel camcorder provides video capture at 1,080P HD resolution.
