Droid RAZR Maxx Review


The Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx has been introduced to address the single most important issue that prospect 4G LTE users are facing: battery life. Of course, this is not a new challenge, and the original RAZR 4G LTE Android smartphone [...]

The Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx is an excellent smartphone (up from “very nice” for the Droid RAZR). Overall, both RAZR phones are very similar and but the nearly double-sized battery capacity makes the user experience much better as it removes the...

Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD


The last and best of the new generation of Motorola Droid phones is finally here: the Droid Razr Maxx HD. This Android smartphone is almost identical to the Razr HD. It's a tiny bit thicker, a hair heavier, and $100 more expensive. What do you get for...

Very long battery life ; Solid, sleek and comfortable design ; Beautiful display ; Good performance ; Semi-rugged and durable ; Runs stock Android with only minor tweaks

Camera isn’t impressive ; Doesn’t ship with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) ; Requires special tool to access microSD slot

At $300 on contract, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD is on the expensive end of the smartphone spectrum. Is the extra battery life worth the extra $100? If you value battery life, the answer is yes.

Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD (Verizon Wireless)


Wouldn't it be nice to just pluck your phone off the charger in the morning and not have to worry about it again until the end of the day? That's what you get with the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD, which turned in the best battery results we've ever...

Solid build quality.Fast processor and data speeds. Incredible battery life

Underwhelming camera. Doesn't run Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Difficult-to-access microSD slot

The Verizon Wireless Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD provides plenty of power and enough battery life to keep you going all day.

Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx HD (Verizon)


With a vibrant display, sleek and durable design, and a long-lasting battery, the Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx HD lives up to its name.

Epic battery life; Attractive and durable Kevlar design; Gorgeous 1280 x 720 display; Loud and clear audio; Snappy performance; Fast 4G LTE speeds

Camera not as sharp or fast as competition; Expensive; Difficult to access microSD card slot

With snappy performance, blazing 4G speeds, a beautiful display and a battery guaranteed to last you throughout the day, the RAZR Maxx HD is a winner.Click to Enlarge But is a larger battery worth an extra $100? Yes.

Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD (Verizon)


Editors' note: Portions of this review were taken from our evaluation of the Motorola Droid Razr HD , since the two devices are almost identical.

The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD (Verizon) offers fast performance, a big eye-popping screen, and luxurious design. It also has great call quality, lots of storage, 4G data speeds, and unbeatable battery life.

The Droid Razr Maxx HD's major weakness is a camera that produces subpar images. The phone is filled with Verizon bloatware as well.

Motorola's fast, stylish Droid Razr Maxx HD offers outstanding battery life, but its camera captures unimpressive images.

Motorola Droid Razr Maxx


UPDATE: Owners of the Droid Razr Maxx can now download Android 4.0. Read our hands-on impressions of the Razr Maxx with Android 4.0 (7/12/2012).

Improved design ; Fantastic battery life ; Bright Super AMOLED screen ; Android 4.0 update coming ; Verizon's 4G LTE network rocks ; Improved camera

Design is logo heavy ; Power and volume buttons are small ; NinjaBlur interface is lifeless ; Lots of bloatware apps installed

With double the battery life of the Razr and a much improved camera, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is one of the best smartphones on the market.

Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX Review - 1.8x The Battery


For a while now, our chief complaint when talking about 4G LTE handsets has been battery life. The combination of 45nm cellular basebands, ever increasing screen size, and 4x nm SoCs has been unforgiving in the power department. Handset manufacturers...

Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx review


Reviewing the Droid RAZR Maxx presents an interesting challenge: in many ways it's the exact same device as the Droid RAZR, which was introduced just a few short months ago. Actually, scratch that: it is the exact same device, but with a gigantic...

Insane battery life ; Solid LTE performance ; Smart Actions quite useful

Poor display ; Iffy call quality ; No Android 4.0 until later in the year

Same Droid RAZR problems in a longer-lasting package

Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx


Most of today's smartphones, especially those of the LTE-enabled persuasion, have earned a bad rap for exceptionally bad battery life, with large displays and hungry radios that suck the juice out faster than a three year-old can down a CapriSun. The...

Spectacular battery life ; Thinner than most comparable smartphones ; Performs as well as original Droid RAZR

Slap in the face to RAZR early adopters ; No improvements in the PenTile qHD display ; Offered at $100 premium over RAZR

If you're a power user, you'll have no choice but to go with the RAZR Maxx's superb battery.

Motorola Droid Razr Maxx Review: Now With More Battery Life


If the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx ($300 with a two year contract from Verizon; price as of 1/27/12) looks familiar, that's because it is virtually identical to the Droid Razr. The big difference between the Razr Maxx and the Razr is battery life:...

Dual-core processor keeps phone running smoothly ; Excellent battery life over LTE

Doesn't run latest version of Android ; Camera is just average

The Droid Razr Maxx packs in a dual-core processor, large battery and LTE in a very thin frame.
