Motorola Razr Maxx - Pocket-lint

 

We still love our original Razr, and the Maxx adds an incredible battery to a great handset. It does take away a lot of the charm and style of the original,

Epic battery life, the Razr is still a great phone, speedy for day-to-day use

Loses a little of its good looks to the larger battery, still no Ice Cream Sandwich, quite expensive

In terms of the phone hardware, not much has changed here since the last Razr. The Maxx isn't as striking to look at, and its name is twice as stupid as the already absurd Razr, but it's still a great phone.

Motorola Razr Maxx review

 

The last Razr was impossibly thin. The new Motorola Razr Maxx isn't. So why buy it?

Amazing battery life ; Gorgeous display ; MotoCast streaming function

Unexceptional camera ; Waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich ; Design won’t please everyone

Motorola RAZR Maxx review

 

Motorola's RAZR is back and this time it's got a not-so-hidden trick in the bulky shape of a supersized battery. Is it enough to see of the competition?

Watch out BlackBerry, there's a new business phone in town – and the Motorola RAZR MAXX has got stamina

Motorola RAZR MAXX review

 

When the Motorola RAZR launched late last year, it had everything we wanted from an Android smartphone. It still stands up well today - six months on - though it has been surpassed by the HTC One X and looks to be trumped by the imminent Samsung Galaxy...

If you want an Android smartphone with a long-lasting battery then buy a RAZR MAXX

Motorola RAZR MAXX Review

 

We can all agree that battery life is a pain-point for mobile phone users. This is something we've heard time and time again and done a fair bit of grumping about ourselves, but we've been yet to see…

Best battery life on offer ; Innovative pre-loaded apps ; Great connectivity

Lacklustre design ; Large surface area ; Runs Gingerbread

Motorola Razr Maxx review

 

We see if the battery is as impressive as it sounds

Amazing battery life

Outdated Android software, too much Motorola bloatware, screen isn't great

The Razr Maxx features an 8MP front facing camera and a 1.3MP rear facing camera. Like the original Razr, while the rear-facing camera is competent, it's not astounding, especially in low light conditions. Despite the handset having an LED flash,...

Motorola Razr Maxx review

 

Motorola's Razr Maxx is little more than a repackaged version of its predecessor, the Razr, with the only notable change being the addition of a larger 3300mAh battery.

Ridiculously good battery, includes a micro-SD card slot, MotoCast can be useful

Poor camera, expensive, little changed since the original Razr

The Razr Maxx seeks to fix its predecessor's power issues, adding a new super size 3300mAh battery. But a lack of any real changes to its internal components makes the device's design feel stale.
