You may recall months ago the Motorola Droid Razr entered the mobile marketplace as the skinniest handset ever designed. As slim as an runway fashion model, the handset nonetheless possesses more native intelligence, and its super-thin profile belies the healthy software and hardware package inside. That feature set and technical specs were kept in place for making the Droid Razr MAXX, but battery size was increased by 85%, and now the Droid Razr MAXX 4G Android smartphone delivers the most talk time or video playback from a single charge of any smartphone, thanks to its oversized 3,300 mA battery.

Talk time runs a whopping 21.5 hours, nearly 3 times the 8.0 hour 4G smartphone average, and video playback stands at an impressive 15.0 hours. However, when enlisted with designing the Droid Razr MAXX, Motorola designers and engineers were told to keep the handset as skinny as possible, and the result is a barely thicker twin to the Motorola Droid Razr 4G, at only 0.35 inches (8.99 mm) in thickness. The Droid Razr MAXX launched in the United States on January 26 of this year with a three digit price tag, but recently benefited from a retail price reduction by Verizon to $99 on contract at select retailers.
Verizon’s 4G LTE wireless platform is the exclusive home of the Droid Razr MAXX, and the handset also delivers the maximum out-of-the-box data storage by adding a removable 16 GB microSD card to the built-in 16 GB the device offers. The 4.3 inch Super AMOLED screen on board the handset delivers a display resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, at 256 pixels per inch. The handset supports capacitive, multitouch gestures for device navigation.
Handling operations on the Droid Razr MAXX is a Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 microchip set that includes a graphics dedicated PowerVR SGX540 chip and dual core 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 central processor. The handset also includes 1.0 GB of RAM system memory, and the microSD slot on board also supports microSDHC cards up to 32 GB. An 8.0 megapixel camcorder built into the back of the handset provides video capture at 1,920 x 1,080 (1080p HD) and 30 frames per second, and a 1.3 megapixel chat cam rides around front.
Motorola also makes the Lapdock 100 accessory that turns the Droid Razr MAXX smartphone into an entry-level laptop with 10.1 inch screen, trackpad and full QWERTY keyboard. Porting the Droid Razr MAXX into the Lapdock 100 laptop accessory also adds five hours of power to the handset, and the hybrid that is created is lighter and smaller than the standard laptop offering.
