Motorola, Verizon Announce Droid RAZR MAXX
Updated: added details / fixed measurement
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...
Seriously no offense to Android owners, but a flagship replacing a 2 month old flagship is just rediculous.
want bigger screen on iPhone? wait another year!
want LTE on iPhone? wait another year!
Putting this in perspective
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.
