Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX 16GB 4G LTE Black Android Smartphone - Verizon

  • TAG : The Droid RAZR MAXX released in February 2012.
  • Features
    Offering a mother lode of Android capabilities, the Droid Razr Maxx has all the staples, including a few surprises, such as GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 (which supports a new generation of low-power accessories), Wi-Fi, and a mobile hot-spot capability that lets the phone act as a modem for up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices. Keep in mind that the mobile hot-spot feature costs about $20 extra per month on top of your voice and data plans.

    Corporate- and government-friendly
    Who says you need a BlackBerry for private or public sector mobile security? Motorola doesn't think so. Also folded into the Droid Razr Maxx is support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, not to mention government-grade FIPS 140-2 encryption for e-mail, calendar, and contacts. For even more peace of mind, more-severe methods such as remote wipe, PIN lock, SD card and device encryption, and remote enabling and disabling of camera and Wi-Fi are possible, too.

  • Many Motorola Android phones feature the company's Webtop app, and the Droid Razr Maxx continues the tradition. It morphs the handset into a mobile quasi-PC with Netbook-level functionality. Just attach it to compatible accessories like the Lapdock 100 (10-inch screen), the (14-inch screen), or an HD Station, and the Webtop platform fires up automatically. These Lapdocks sport a keyboard and touch pad, but you'll have to contribute your own input devices if using something like the HD Station.

    The Droid RAZR MAXX HD features a 4.7-inch display with a 1280 x 720 resolution that is great for watching HD video content on the go. The display is large enough to enjoy a movie or TV show, but no so large that it is a challenge to hold thanks to slim bezels.

    Text and photos look good on the RAZR MAXX HD’s display, though the iPhone 5 display looks slightly better in side-by-side comparisons. Watching movies on the Droid RAZR MAXX HD is enjoyable thanks to deep blacks and bright colors.

The Motorola DROID MAXX has a high-end look and feel

According to Motorola, the original Droid RAZR was good for around 12 hours of talk time, where as the new Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX qwill give you up to 21 hours of talk time.
