As alluringly thin and runway model skinny as the Motorola Droid Razr 4G handset is, battery life is not the greatest. And just as there is absolutely no room for fat on a supermodel waif, there simply is no place to store battery life on the Droid Razr 4G, the thinnest 4G handset ever built.
Motorola knew they had a hit with the device, thanks to its impressive features like high-resolution screen, high-resolution camera, speedy processor and substantial RAM memory allotment. So rather than go back to the drawing board in an attempt to design a whole new handset, Motorola simply replaced the battery with an 85% larger model, and the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX was born.

Still incredibly thin at 0.35 inches (8.99 mm), the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G LTE handset that runs on Verizon’s 4G LTE system is still thinner than almost all competing 4G smartphones. And even with that skinny profile that would make Kate Moss jealous, the Droid Razr MAXX delivers the max amount of out-of-the-box, user accessible storage and talk time of any 4G smartphone. The 21.5 hours of talk time delivered from a single charge of the 3,300 mA battery on board is easily the best in the smartphone marketplace, and is nearly three times the 8.0 hour 4G average.
And the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX can provide a whopping 15 hours of consecutive video playback with that same single battery charge. Also maxing out in another important area, the Droid Razr MAXX delivers 32 GB of user accessible data storage out-of-the-box. That is comprised of 16 GB of built-in storage and a removable 16 GB microSD card that ships with the handset.
That also is a 4G-best smartphone offering. And currently retailing for $199 at select retailers on contract, the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G Android smartphone benefits from traveling on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network that independent wireless systems reviewer RootMetrics tested as the fastest and most reliable 4G LTE system in the US.
The handset also offers video out through micro-HDMI and DLNA access, a large 4.3 inch screen with 540 x 960 pixel resolution, and an 8.0 megapixel camcorder that can record video at a high-end resolution of 1,080P HD. A 1.2 GHz dual core Cortex A9 central processor joins a graphics dedicated PowerVR SGX540 chip in the hardware package on board, which also includes 1.0 GB of RAM system memory.
