Review: Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX for Verizon Wireless
NOTE: Since the RAZR MAXX runs identical software to the RAZR, large portions of the following sections were taken from Phone Scoop's review of the RAZR. Rest assured, we thoroughly tested the RAZR MAXX.
The Droid RAZR MAXX runs Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and shows only the faintest of skins from Motorola. It acts very much like Gingerbread does on the Droid Bionic. It includes some nice widgets from Motorola, and the main menu slides left and right, rather than up and down. Most of the menus behave like stock Android.
There are five home screen panels that users can adjust at will. There are four permanent icons in a dock at the bottom of the screen, which can be changed if you wish. There is the usual flotilla of Android and Motorola widgets available to make the home screen more dynamic.

I wish Motorola had added some basic controls to the notification shade, as other manufacturers have been doing as of late. It didn't, and instead the notification shade only provides updates.
As for performance, the Droid RAZR MAXX is incredibly fast. It has a dual-core 1.2GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4 processor inside. Add this to the LTE radio and the 1GB of RAM and what you get are lightning fast screen transitions, smooth application performance, and no stuttering as the Droid RAZR MAXX moves from screen to screen and app to app.
