The Motorola Droid Razr 4G Android smartphone was designed as the skinniest handset ever to grace the mobile marketplace. But just as a skinny person doesn’t have a lot of junk in the trunk, skinny handsets have very poor battery life, usually. While the Motorola Droid Razr 4G delivers an acceptable amount of battery life with its skinny profile taken into account, Droid Razr owners begged for more, but wanted to keep all the high-end features their handset offered. The answer is the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G, which earns its name by delivering max battery performance.

Exclusive to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE system, the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G Android smartphone recently received a retail price drop to $149 on contract at select retailers. That handset also delivers the maximum amount of data storage out-of-the-box of any smartphone, at 32 GB. A 16 GB microSD card ships with the handset, and 16 GB of built-in, user accessible storage space are present. Fortunately, the inclusion of an 85% larger battery did not overly tax the talents of the Motorola engineers, who have kept the Droid Razr MAXX skinnier than most every other smartphone, at only 0.35 inches thick (8.9 mm).
With Android’s Gingerbread operating system present out-of-the-box, and the promise to upgrade to the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0 OS by June 30, the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G Android smartphone comes complete with Google integration in the form of Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Google Talk and Picasa applications. Powering the splash-proof Kevlar and aluminum coated handset is a Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 suite of microchips, including a dual core 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 central processor and graphics dedicated PowerVR SGX540 chip. A full 1.0 GB of RAM system memory is on board.
The 4.30 inch Super AMOLED capacitive, multitouch display delivers a high resolution pixel density of 256 pixels per inch, which results in an overall display resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. Light and proximity sensors automatically adjust for the best possible brightness and conserve battery life, and a protective layer of Corning Gorilla Glass overlays the screen.
The camera combo on board includes a 1.3 megapixel chat cam (front) and 8.0 megapixel camcorder (rear). That rear device offers autofocus and image stabilizing features, delivers an F2.4 lens aperture, and comes equipped with an LED flash for low light camera operation. The front facing chat cam also provides video call support and portrait snapshot capabilities. Buy the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx starting at $149.
