Motorola and Verizon today announced the Droid RAZR MAXX, a new flagship Droid RAZR phone. The MAXX boasts a massive 3300 mAh battery that can sustain 21 straight hours of talk time, yet measures only 8.9 mm thick (compared to the Droid RAZR's 7.1 mm.) The display measures 4.3 inches and uses Super AMOLED Advanced technology, like the Droid RAZR. The processor is 1.2 GHz dual-core and LTE data is included. The camera is 8-megapixel. It also contains 32 GB of internal memory. The MAXX will come to market "in the coming weeks" for $300 with two-year contract.

Hold the flames...

but this is exactly why I'm done with Android.
Seriously no offense to Android owners, but a flagship replacing a 2 month old flagship is just rediculous.
atleast on android, you have choices NOW!
want bigger screen on iPhone? wait another year!
want LTE on iPhone? wait another year!

Putting this in perspective

I don't see this as a RAZR replacement. It's a different kind of phone.

Motorola managed to make the guts of the phone practically disappear. With that engineering magic, they could have done two things:

1. A really thin phone with a normal battery.

2. A normal-size phone with a really big battery.

The Droid RAZR is the former. If you value thin-ness over battery life, get that one.

The Droid RAZR MAXX is the latter. If you value battery life over thin-ness, get that one.
