The Motorola Droid Razr MAXX exists because the ultra-skinny Motorola Droid Razr does not provide the greatest battery life. For casual users, the full-featured Android handset is just fine. But for those of us who practically live on our phones, having to charge the handset up constantly was a real pain in the you know what. Enter the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX, with the exact same specs and features of the Droid Razr, but with a 3,300 mAh battery replacing the original 1,780 mAh cell. That 85% improvement in battery size this has resulted in a staggering 21.5 hours of talk time delivered from a single charge. That is easily the best in the 4G smartphone marketplace, and nearly triple the average eight hours offered from the typical 4G handset.

Of course generally, things are a trade-off in smartphone design. Handsets become skinny, and lose battery life. So you would automatically think that the larger battery on the Droid Razr MAXX would make it a bulky and unwieldy object. However, the design engineers at Motorola have done an excellent job in keeping the handset slim. The Motorola Droid Razr offers an wafer-thin 0.28 inch (7.1 mm) thickness, and is easily the thinnest mobile handset ever designed. But the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX is by no means a fatty in comparison. At 0.35 inches (8.99 mm ), the handset is still slimmer than the majority of 4G smartphones.
And as mentioned above, all original high-end specs and features are still present on the Droid Razr Maxx. Android’s Gingerbread operating system is present out-of-the-box, and the splashproof, Kevlar and aluminum coated physical appearance of the handset is striking and unique. The 4.30 inch Super AMOLED screen offers a resolution and pixel density at the top end of the 4G smartphone spectrum, at 256 pixels per inch and 540 x 960 pixels overall. Motorola then layered a protective coating of scratch resistant glass over the screen.
The power back on board is a Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 microchip set, including a dual core 1.2 GHz processor and PowerVR SGX540 graphics dedicated chip. An allotment of 1.0 GB RAM memory is present, and the Motorola Droid Razr MAXX leads all 4G handsets in out-of-the-box user accessible storage, providing 16 GB of storage built in and an additional 16 GB microSD card. An 8.0 megapixel camcorder (rear) provides video capture at 1080P HD resolution, and the front mounted 1.3 megapixel chat cam also offers video call functionality.
