The Droid RAZR MAXX is more like an alternate version of the Droid RAZR, for people who'd gladly trade the thin-ness of the RAZR for some amazing battery life.
Since the Droid RAZR has a non-removable battery, the RAZR MAXX is akin to a permanent extended battery.
It would have been a little more fair to consumers to introduce both the RAZR and RAZR MAXX at the same time, but now that they're both announced, it's a sensible lineup.
There really aren't any other differences; the features are the same.
The RAZR MAXX comes with 32 GB of built-in memory, just like the original Droid RAZR. But now Verizon also offers a version of the Droid RAZR with just 16GB. They also offer that 16 GB version in three colors: gray, white, and now purple.
Motorola takes its fourth shot at the Droid that started it all with the Droid 4. For the QWERTY keyboard seeker, there's a lot to like about this LTE 4G smartphone for Verizon Wireless.
