Droid RAZR MAXX by Mototrola Review
16 May 2012
Conclusion: This is the first phone since I got my Droid X that has been hard to return. I like the looks, the use of Gorilla glass, and, oh yeah, the battery life. This is the first 4G phone I would consider owning. I don’t like that the battery is not user-replaceable, and many won’t consider it because of Motorola’s use of a boot-loader to prevent rooting, but I am OK with these compromises.
Pros: Long battery life, Large display, Gorilla Glass, Kevlar Case, Micro SD slot
Cons: Battery not user-replaceable, Boot Loader locked (not easily rooted)
Excerpt: "In many ways, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is the smartphone the Droid Razr should have been," says Brian Bennett of CNET, and other reviewers agree. With a giant boost in battery life, the Droid Razr Maxx offers the power to utilize its blazingly fast 4G speeds without draining the battery dry. While it's slightly thicker than its predecessor, reviewers agree this makes it feel substantial.
Pros: Long battery life, Bright, vibrant display, Sturdy construction, Fast 4G speeds
Cons: Text can appear jagged on screen, May be too large for some users
Excerpt: Motorola's Droid RAZR MAXX is Verizon's other premier LTE smartphone, and the evolution of the smaller Droid RAZR. Released just a few months after its predecessor, it brings just one key upgrade to the table: better battery life. Still, it packs all the same punch as the original RAZR, and currently holds the title of Motorola's flagship smartphone.
Conclusion: With double the battery life of the Razr and a much improved camera, the Maxx is one of the best smartphones on the market. It has a dual-core processor, 4G LTE connection, Super AMOLED screen, great battery life, and it’s still one of the thinnest phones on the market. Though we still prefer the Android 4.0 operating system on the Galaxy Nexus, Motorola promises that Maxx owners will get it by mid-2012. As they say, good things come to those who wait.
Motorola Droid RAZR vs Droid RAZR Maxx – the decision is pretty easy
13 February 2012
Conclusion: As you can see, the Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx are pretty much the same handset, with the major difference being that the latter lasts twice or even three times as long (in 3G mode) on a single charge. The extra 1.9 mm of thickness are definitely worth that, and I don’t see why anyone would choose the Droid RAZR over the RAZR Maxx. That seems to be the popular opinion, too.
The Droid RAZR gets a little thicker and a lot longer-lasting

Summary: by encouraging buyers to pass and wait for the Nexus, which offered a bigger, better screen and Android 4.0. That recommendation has been more than validated since the Nexus has been released — there’s no way you should buy a Droid RAZR over a Galaxy Nexus.
Excerpt: Any lasting relationship isn’t reliant on looks alone. Sure, it starts with lust. But we get older, slower. We grow love handles and extra chins. But we stay together because, ultimately, the connection is based on something deeper than the superficial. It’s a dramatic conceit to apply to a smartphone, but an apt one — when Motorola rebooted its iconic Razr brand last November with the debut of the remarkably svelte Droid Razr , we fell in love with its looks.
Conclusion: Like the Razr, the Droid Razr Maxx is a feature-packed phone with a fast processor, beautiful display and 4G LTE speeds (a must on Verizon) that innovates in some very useful ways. The water-repellent nanocoating inside helps protect it from life's little unpleasantries, and the Smart Actions will be a godsend for those who need to change setting between work and home, day and night, or weekday and weekends.
