Motorola RAZR MAXX Versus Motorola RAZR

Motorola have been quiet as hibernating mice so far this year, with very few hints as to what they are going to offer to consumers. Not one single new Android phone or tablet was showcased at Mobile World Congress, but now it comes to light that Motorola RAZR MAXX is on its way.

It was only a little over four months ago that the original Motorola RAZR was released in the UK, which may infuriate customers who forked out the full price for this phone. Motorola RAZR MAXX was actually showcased at CES, Las Vegas back in January, but at that time it was only set for a US release. So just what has changed with this second edition handset? Is there any reason to be annoyed, or are the improvements that trivial as to not matter?

Motorola RAZR MAXX, Android phone.

Motorola RAZR MAXX weighs in at 145 grams, which is 18 grams heavier than its predecessor. It's also slightly more portly, with a waistline measuring 8.99 mm, 1.89 mm more than its older brother, all other measurements are exactly the same.

Both Android phones ship with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), though both are upgradeable to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). If you wish to keep an eye on when this upgrade becomes available, it's worth following Motorola's support forum for news.

Both phones have a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, and both have Corning Gorilla Glass for added protection. In fact, the specs are almost identical across the board until it comes to the battery.

Motorola RAZR MAXX has a Li-Ion 3300 mAh battery that extends talk-time by a further 5 hours, giving an overall time of 17.6 hours (Motorola RAZR has a Li-Ion 1780 mAh battery). This massively improved battery also promises that once fully charged you'll be able to surf the web for 7 hours solid, watch movies for a staggering 15 hours or listen to music for up to 60 hours. Now that's the type of battery power we've always wanted on an Android phone. Not quite a 3 day battery, but still you can't complain.

Added Extras

Smart Actions can help you to get the very best from your phone. Settings within this app can be optimized to suit you. For example, if you wish to get instant access to your music as soon as you plug in your headphones you can, you can set your phone to automatically adapt settings depending on whether you're at work, home or trying to sleep.

MotoCast gives you instant access to all of your media content and documents stored on your computer, on either your phone or tablet.

Government - grade encryption adds a little bit of extra security, leaving you safe in the knowledge that all of your personal data, such as emails, contacts and calendar are top secret, just as they should be.

Motorola RAZR MAXX is also water repellent, even the electrical innards, so little spills and light rain will not kill you phone.
