Summary: The Motorola RAZR MAXX runs on Android OS, v2.3.6 (Gingerbread), upgradable to v4.0 and is powered by Dual-core 1.2 GHz processor with 1GB RAM. It has a 4.3-inch, 540 x 960 pixel display. The Motorola RAZR MAXX also comes with a 8.0-megapixel camera that is able to record videos at 1080p. It comes with 16GB of built-in storage, and is able to support microSD cards of up to 32GB.
Pros: + Rugged design, + Long battery life, + Mid-end price point
Cons: - No quick camera button, - Comes with Gingerbread
Conclusion: The Motorola Razr Maxx Ve is a true performer, once you get past its boring all-black exterior and outdated UI. The construction of the phone feels to be made well, and reminds us of our beloved StarTac. The External Display is one of the largest that we’ve seen on a recent phone, and with 65K color capability, wallpapers look quite nice. The 2MP AutoFocus Camera worked amazingly well a majority of the time, as long as too much sunlight doesn’t enter into the Iris.
Pros: Slim Design, Displays size and quality, Call quality and Reception, Speakerphone, 2MP Camera with AutoFocus and Flash, MP3 Playback with Touch-Sensitive controls, MicroSD card slot
Cons: Outdated Verizon UI software, Front Flip is a Fingerprint Magnet, Battery Cover must be removed to access the memory card
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
Summary: While Battery life is good the phone is essentially the same as the standard RAZR, but are you willing to pay an extra £100+ for better Battery life? A good question, but personally we wouldn’t.
Excerpt: DinSide "Vi gleder oss til å se hva Motorola sender nordover neste gang" skrev vi etter å ha testet Motorola Razr . Det skulle vise seg at nestemann ut var en ny Razr-modell; Motorola Razr Maxx . Navnet er kanskje funnet opp av en 14 år gammel "belieber" , men bortsett fra det er det lite her som minner om småjenter. For dette er ikke noe rosa fjolleri. Dette er en solid klump av en amerikaner, som har noe nesten ingen andre har: Et batteri det er klin umulig å klage på.
Pros: Det beste batteriet vi har sett i nyere historie, fin ytelse, robust.
Cons: Skuffende kamera, utdatert Android-versjon, burde vært billigere.
