Motorola RAZR MAXX Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Conclusion: The Motorola RAZR MAXX is virtually the same phone as the Motorola RAZR released towards the end of last year, only now it has a fantastic battery and an even more out of date OS. The phone may not look amazing, however delivers solid performance across the board without too much girth. The battery life truly is worth shouting about, lasting at least two days, so if you can handle Gingerbread and excess fascia, we can confidently recommend you snap one up.
Pros: Best battery life on offer, Innovative pre-loaded apps, Great connectivity
Cons: Lacklustre design, Large surface area, Runs Gingerbread
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.
The Droid RAZR gets a little thicker and a lot longer-lasting
9 February 2012
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: It's sexy, it's unique and nearly bulletproof thanks to Gorilla Glass on the front and Kevlar on the back. Voice quality is excellent, download speeds on LTE rock and the phone has supreme battery life. The Super AMOLED display is very colorful with deep blacks, though it's not the highest resolution display on the block. The Droid RAZR MAXX works with Motorola's myriad accessories including the Lapdock, giving it an element of versatility.
Pros: All that Droid RAZR goodness, with nearly 2x battery life.
Conclusion: If you are a power user and are sick of continually charging your battery, you should take a look at the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. Its talk and standby times are the longest that we've seen on a smartphone, and the device has plenty of high-end features to quench an Android user’s thirst, with its only drawbacks being the non-HD screen and the mediocre camera quality.
Pros: Long lasting battery, Good design and materials used
Cons: Still waiting on Ice Cream Sandwich, Display is not HD quality, Camera and camcorder are not top-notch
Summary: The $299 Droid RAZR Maxx represents an impressive feat of engineering. Motorola managed to cram a high-capacity battery inside a design that's thinner than most 4G LTE phones, enabling it to last more than twice as long on a charge as competing devices like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (with its standard battery) and LG Spectrum . And although the Maxx is a little large, we appreciate its durability.
Conclusion: In terms of the phone hardware, not much has changed here since the last Razr. The Maxx isn't as striking to look at, and its name is twice as stupid as the already absurd Razr, but it's still a great phone. The extra battery is fabulous, the phone remains a good media player with decent audio quality via headphones, and that Motorola connected music player that we rather like. All in all, this is THE Android phone to get if you need a lot of battery life.
Pros: Epic battery life, the Razr is still a great phone, speedy for day-to-day use
Cons: Loses a little of its good looks to the larger battery, still no Ice Cream Sandwich, quite expensive
