Review: Motorola Droid RAZR HD / MAXX HD for Verizon Wireless
The Motorola Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD are significant improvements over their predecessors, though not without faults of their own.
The modern design language may not appeal to all consumers, the sharp edge along the rim of the display is somewhat uncomfortable. Neither device is the thinnest or lightest in this category.
The displays are good, but not perfect. The same can be said of signal performance, and call performance. Aside from some stutters here and there, both phones ran all the apps and services I loaded with no problem. The cameras do a good job and the user interface is flexible enough to meet the needs of most users.

The real star of the Motorola Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD show, however, is battery life. These two smartphones have some of the best battery life I've ever seen from a mobile device. Power users who prioritize battery life shouldn't bother looking at any other phones. The RAZR HD and MAXX HD fit the power-user bill perfectly.
