What’s it all about
The Razr Maxx is based on the Droid Razr so before we jump into what makes the Maxx special you should know what the Razr is all about. I don’t think anyone hasn’t had any experience with the Original Motorola Razr, an innovative phone from long before smart phones that focused on bringing top of the line tech (at the time) into a thin form factor. This combined with great pricing later in its life made this a very popular phone. Motorola took the same ideas that made the original Razr and implemented them overtop of today’s tech.
Today’s Droid Razr will get you an 8MP camera that is capable of recording video in 1080p, the capability to use the phone as a “webtop”, android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) with the ability to upgrade to ICS later, all on a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display. Slicking with the Razr theme the entire phone is what they call impossibly thin at 7.1mm’s thick. Around back on the phone you have a Kevlar coating that helps protect the phone and give it a little extra styling. To go along with the Kevlar backplate it comes with a Gorilla Glass front.
The Razr Maxx is very similar to the normal Razr but with one huge difference, batter life. Motorola packed in a 3300 mAh Li Ion battery, compared to the standard Razr’s 1780 mAh battery. This additional capacity adds slightly to the phones thickness as well as upping its reported talk time from 600 min to up to 21.5 hours on the Maxx. This should keep the 1.2 Ghz Dual Core processor and 16 Gb’s of memory powered for many hours of Angry Birds and Words with Friends.
