Terrier Tech: Droid Razr Maxx
Powerful battery leaves other droids behind
“Terrier Tech” is back with a review of another Android phone, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx, which, happily, delivers in both form and function. Despite its powerful 3,300mAH battery, the Razr Maxx retains the super slim profile and sleek shape that has made the line of Razr phones famous. It’s a welcome improvement to the already crowded field of smartphones.
Cutting through all the hype that seems to attach itself to each new smartphone, you’ll discover the Razr Maxx has download speeds and processing power similar to other top-of-the-line phones on the Verizon 4G network. The phone’s camera is quick and responsive, able to shoot 1080p video. Apps launch smoothly and efficiently, as you’d expect from any dual processor phone currently on the market. What separates this droid from all others is its long-life battery, which now allows users to leave their charger at home for days at a time without worrying that the phone will run out of juice. In short, this phone’s battery leaves all other android phones in the dust. We were able to put the Razr Maxx through two full days of moderate use before we had to even begin to think about charging.
In addition, the phone features “smart actions” to help users maximize battery life and automatize the phone’s routines. For instance, the phone can learn to automatically shut off non-essential services like GPS and data backup when the battery drops below 25 percent. Want your phone to play “Eye of the Tiger” when you approach your classroom at CAS at 8 a.m. and send a text message to your buddy that you’ve arrived? It can also do that.
At $299.99 with a two-year contract or eligible upgrade, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is comparable to other phones on the Verizon network, such as the original Droid Razr and Droid Bionic at their respective launches.
“Finally, a phone I can be lazy about charging,” says “Terrier Tech” host Warren Towers. “I’ll never miss a Draw Something round ever again!”
