First Look: Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX [CES 2012]

The Motorola Droid RAZR just hit shelves at the end of last year, but to reach its uber-thin design the built in battery was relegated to a 1700mAh rated battery. Given the phone’s large Super AMOLED display, dual-core processor, and LTE connectivity battery life just hasn’t cut it for some power users. No problem, here comes the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX. The MAXX retains all of the specs that made the original device shine but bumps it up to a 3300mAh battery, close to double the original. It still manages to earn the RAZR name with a thickness of only 8.9mm.

The extended battery life equates to 8 hours of non-stop movie viewing. Another way to see it has the phone making it from LA to Las Vegas and back using Google Maps Navigation in one charge. Say goodbye to your car charger.

While we wonder how the release of the RAZR MAXX will affect the currently available RAZR — things could get a bit confusing for customers wondering why last year’s model is still a viable option (we smell a price cut in its future) — Motorola is confident that offering a broader range of options will best meet consumer needs. Check out the video above for the rundown.
