The Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G exists only because the Motorola Droid Razr 4G smartphone was too good at the one feature it was focused on delivering. As you know the Droid Razr is the thinnest 4G smartphone ever designed, but Motorola did such an amazing job in creating a skinny handset, there simply is not enough battery life to make Droid Razr users happy. Smartphones these days are first and foremost portable devices, and if you are continually plugging them into a cigarette lighter or wall socket, that makes their portability less than desirable.

After listening to their customers, Motorola released an extended life battery for the Motorola Droid Razr. However, that handset and extended life battery still reaches nowhere near the battery performance level of the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX, which is basically the exact same Motorola Droid Razr, but with an oversized cell installed. The handset delivers an incredible 21.5 hours of consecutive talk time from a single charge of the 3,300 mAh battery on board, a cell that is 85% larger than the original Droid Razr’s battery. And if you’re thinking that beast of a battery makes for a big handset, you need to know that the Droid Razr MAXX is still thinner than the majority of 4G smartphones.
And while all the attention surrounding the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX 4G LTE Verizon Wireless handset involves battery performance, that particular Android smartphone also delivers the most user accessible storage out-of-the-box when compared to all other 4G handsets. Motorola Droid Razr MAXX buyers receive 16 GB of built-in storage, as well as a 16 GB microSD card. And retailing for $199 with a standard new two-year activation and data plan, the Droid Razr MAXX delivers Android’s Gingerbread operating system out-of-the-box, but is on a short list of devices to receive Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
The rest of the technical specifications are the same as the Droid Razr, with a rear facing 8.0 megapixel camcorder providing video capture at 1080P HD resolution, and joined by a 1.3 megapixel chat cam in the camera combo. The 4.30 inch display offers 540 x 960 pixel screen resolution at an above average 256 pixels per inch. That Super AMOLED screen uses capacitive, multitouch technology to navigate the device, and is protected by an overlay of Corning Gorilla Glass. The dual core 1.2 GHz Texas Instruments central processor joins a graphics dedicated chip and 1.0 GB of RAM memory in the onboard hardware package. Buy the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx starting at $199.
