Review: Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX for Verizon Wireless
The Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX takes everything about the original RAZR and improves on it dramatically. The biggest niggles to me with the original RAZR were battery life and less-than-stellar radio performance. The RAZR MAXX is a much better data device than the original RAZR over both 4G and 3G, and the battery performance is second-to-none among Android 4G smartphones.
The down side, if you call it that, is that the RAZR MAXX is thicker and heavier than the RAZR. Given the enormous performance improvements gained by the MAXX thanks to the tweaked radios and 3300mAh battery, the trade-offs are more than worth it to me.
Perhaps the RAZR MAXX's only real weakness is that it doesn't ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Add Android 4.0, and the RAZR MAXX would easily be a better overall device than the Galaxy Nexus.
