First Look: Motorola Droid Razr Maxx (Verizon)

1:43 /

Available on Verizon, Motorola's $299.99 Droid Razr Maxx takes all the great features of the first Droid Razr and adds on a high-capacity 3300 mAh battery for good measure.

Hi, I'm Brian Bennett with CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. It's available on Verizon for $299.99. This Android handset is a follow up to the original and very popular Droid Razr. Everything that made the first Droid Razr a hit is here. 1.2 gigahertz dual core processor, a big 4.3 inch super amoled qHD resolution screen, Verizon 4G LTE data and 32 gigabytes of memory, you get 16 gig internal and 16 gigabyte on a micro SD card. An 8 megapixel main camera is able to capture 1080p video. There's also Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Also you get an HDMI out for outputting to HD TVs. As you might have guessed from its name, the main improvement with the Droid Razr Maxx is a much higher capacity battery. Motorola ups the battery in the Maxx to 3300 mAh, which just leaps and bounce beyond the 1780 mAh battery the first Droid Razr came with. One drawback though is that while the Droid Razr Maxx is close to the same thickness as the original Droid Razr, Motorola filled in the extra space below the home found on the first device. More mass equals more weight making the Razr Maxx slightly heavier at 5.1 ounces compared to 4.5 ounces for the original Droid Razr. Still Motorola claims the Droid Razr Maxx serves up a talk time over 21 hours and almost 16 days of standby time. It'll probably take some time to run our battery test. So check back soon for our full review. I'm Brian Bennett at CNET.com and this has been a first look at the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx.
