A Preview of the Motorola RAZR Maxx
Motorola's RAZR Maxx is an updated version of their RAZR smartphone, boasting unprecedented battery power and a slightly thicker frame as a result.
The most impressive feature of the RAZR Maxx is its 3300 mAh battery, making it 185% more powerful than its predecessor and head and shoulders above anything else on the market. The battery allows up to 21 hours of talk-time, 7 hours on non-stop internet browsing, or 15 hours of video-watching.
The colossal battery power makes the RAZR Maxx 1.9mm thicker than its predecessor, at 9mm. This by no means makes it a monster though, and it's safe to say that it's a reasonable trade-off for the amount you can squeeze out of its battery.
In terms of specs, the RAZR Maxx is identical to the original RAZR. It features a sizeable 4.3" Super AMOLED display, and runs on the Android Gingerbread platform - upgradeable to the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. It has a powerful 8MP HD camera with 8x digital zoom, and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera with 720p HD video capture.
The RAZR Maxx features a substantial 16GB of internal memory, on top of which there is a 16GB pre-installed microSD card. This amount of storage will be more than enough for most people, and everything installed on the phone will be kept running smoothly by a powerful Dual-Core 1.2Ghz processor.
The Motorola RAZR Maxx is due for release in 'selected markets' in Europe at some point in May.
A full review will be published here once the phone has been released.
