You probably know that the Motorola Droid RAZR smartphone was released mid-November of last year as the thinnest 4G handset ever designed. You may also know that that device carries one of the fastest processors in the entire 4G smartphone marketplace, a large high-res display, and an impressive overall feature set. However, battery life on the super-skinny handset was just not what smartphone shoppers had hoped for. In answer, Motorola released the Droid RAZR MAXX 4G smartphone on the same Verizon Wireless 4G LTE system as the RAZR, with identical specs and a battery boost. They beefed-up the battery capacity by 85%, to deliver 21.50 hours of talk time from a single charge.

The Droid RAZR MAXX recently received a retail price drop to $199 at select Verizon authorized retailers with a two-year activation, and while all the above data was very positive, the phone actually has some hidden features which make it even more attractive to 4G smartphone shoppers. The Droid RAZR MAXX makes a great phone for the beach and around the pool, because the of the Kevlar backing and a special splashproof coating which is resistant to incidental contact with water and other liquids. This feature is also inherent to the Motorola Droid RAZR, and is a hidden characteristic that has flown under the radar.
And while Motorola does advertise the fact that the Droid RAZR MAXX delivers the most run time from a single charge of all 4G smartphones, some shoppers don’t realize it also delivers the most storage out-of-the-box. With 16 GB of storage built into the handset, and an additional 16 GB microSD card, the RAZR MAXX leads the 4G smartphone field with 32 GB of storage instantly available, another hidden gem.
And the Razr MAXXX also delivers a pixel density of 250 pixels per inch, which lies at the high end of the 4G smartphones spectrum. That results in an overall resolution of 540 x 960 pixels on the 4.30 inch Super AMOLED display, which is protected by an overlay of scratch resistant and glare reducing Gorilla Glass. And while other phones also come equipped with an 8.0 megapixel camcorder, as does the Razr MAXX, the model integrated into the MAXX delivers features not found in many other handsets. Geo-tagging, black-and-white, negative and sepia special effects, preloaded scenes, extended exposure and panorama shot taking capabilities join an LED flash in one of the fullest camera feature sets of any smartphone.
