When Motorola designed the Droid Razr MAXX 4G Android smartphone, they did something not all smartphone manufacturers do. Sometimes a smartphone maker will have a hit on their hands, like Motorola did with the skinny Droid Razr 4G, and then their next generation phone will break away from their winning form substantially. Motorola followed the KISS philosophy and kept things simply simple, borrowing all the favorite and favorable characteristics of the Droid Razr 4G and improving battery life 85%. The result is the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx 4G, which delivers the most out-of-the-box data storage, and most talk time and video playback from a single charge of any 4G handset.
The Droid Razr MAXX 4G ships with 16 GB of user accessible data storage built into the handset, and also includes a removable 16 GB microSD card. 21.5 hours of talk time is achieved from a single charge of the 3,300 mA oversized battery, and alternately 15.0 hours of video playback is available from a single charge as well. With that huge battery that is nearly twice the size of many found on typical smartphones today, Motorola has done an excellent job in keeping the handset slim, as it measures only 0.35 inches (8.9 mm) in thickness.
The Droid Razr MAXX 4G currently sells starting at $99 on contract at select retailers, and boasts a 1.2 GHz dual core central processor, PowerVR SGX540 GPU that handles graphics duties, high resolution video camcorder and 1.0 GB of RAM memory. But the splash-proof Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G Android smartphone can also dock into the optional Motorola Lapdock 100 and Lapdock 500 accessories to transform into a 10.1 inch or 14.0 inch entry-level laptop respectively. Snap that handset into the HD Station made by Motorola specifically for the Droid Razr MAXX and the handset can hook up to an HDTV or monitor, keyboard and mouse and function as a desktop PC. And when you pop the Kevlar and aluminum coated Droid Razr MAXX 4G into the GPS vehicle dock you have a hands-free, turn by turn GPS system for your automobile.
When using the handset as a handset, you are looking at a 4.3 inch display which is protected by a scratch resistant layer of Corning Gorilla Glass. Resolution runs 540 x 960 pixels and is offered in 256 pixels per inch, with more than 16 million colors used to display visuals. A 1.3 megapixel chat cam is facing the user from the front of the handset, and the 8.0 megapixel camcorder on back provides video capture at 1,080P HD resolution. You can buy the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx starting at $99.
