The good: Despite a beefed-up battery, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx has a slim, attractive, and durable design with the same gorgeous display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and fast Verizon 4G/LTE data speeds as its predecessor. It retains powerful multimedia chops and tight security features.
The bad: For such an advanced smartphone, the vague promise of a future Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is disappointing. Also, while a stronger battery is great, it's still not user-removable. People with small hands will find it hard to wrap them around the phone's wide frame, and the 8-megapixel camera is unimpressive.
The bottom line: The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx proves that a powerful Android superphone can remain thin yet still promise marathon-worthy battery life.
All day battery, wrapped in a speedy package.

Great Phone Switched from Galaxy Nexus
by NJbadboy on March 14, 2012
Pros: Battery Life
Size of Phone
Can Uninstall (some) bloatware
Cons: Long Charge Time (due to massive battery)
No Screenshot (App needed)

Summary: Decided to switch to the RazR Maxx after owning the Galaxy Nexus for 3 months due to issues with the hardware (microphone) and call/data signal. Wasn't sure which I wanted next so I tried the Rezound, while I loved it for the screen and speedy processor it just could not compare in battery life.
So far I have had 0 issues with my RazR Maxx. Bought off Amazon for $229 on an upgrade. Received in 2days. Way faster than the week or so it will take if ordered from Verizon.
The screen is beautiful in HD videos such as YouTube or NetFlix.
The camera while all the reviews I read say its not the best, I haven't experienced any issues thus far.
Beautiful Widgets look and work great on this device and are much better than the standard Moto Widgets that come on the phone.
First day out ran about 15hours on a charge. Second day after killing the battery and fully charging to condition, I managed to get 22hours. Both of which included 4G only use; watching videos and playing music/games.
The Smart Actions feature is definitely helpful as I set rules for nighttime and it automatically conserves battery use if I don't want to plug in as well as it lowers my ringer.
Unlike other phones on VZ that are pre-loaded with bloatware the RazR Maxx allows you to uninstall certain ones (i.e. Let's Golf 2, Madden '12, etc.) and ones such as Moto applications that you may not use have the ability to be hidden in the app drawer.
No issues with voice signal or data connectivity thus far. The only thing as of right now that will make this phone better is my ICS update.
User friendly, long lasting for kids and families

Pros: Longer battery life
Mobile Hot Spot
Great Video and graphics
Extensive android app catalog
Cons: Big for small hands when using as a phone

Summary: I really love the Droid RAZR for all the speed of the processor and the network. I love the image and video options of being able to take photos and videos in different formats right on the phone and quickly uploading things to various social media networks. Also being able to easily view everything on my google network like Google Docs definitely helps on the Android Market.Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Wireless Ambassadors' Program and have been provided with a wireless device and three months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.
My four year old prefers watching cartoons and playing games on the Motorola Droid Razr Phone over the iPhone. I asked her why and she said she liked the picture. She also said it was faster and when she uses the touch screen she says the "cartoon" does things faster than on the iPhone 3.
I like the mobile hot spot available on the phone and have used it at work for other devices. In my opinion social media sharing is definitely easier with the Droid Razr.

DIESEL phone! love it
by puchodog1977 on March 11, 2012
Pros: this droid is great, battery , if used like a phone and not a laptop all day i bet this thing would go for days. great size for a screen and 4g with verizon is lightning fast. smooth scrolling, with my 32gb card i have tons of room.
Cons: very slippery when naked but in a case its perfect! i got the commuter otterbox this is your best bet! water proofing it almost and it doesnt crowd the screen ( you can actually move apps to the next screen without fighting it )
Summary: get this phone if you want quality , power , and fun! hint root this mutha *****

Best phone ever! Thin, super fast, great battery. Love!
by kgranata on March 11, 2012
Pros: Very thin, durable, long battery life between charges. Love Android and the fact that you can customize themes, widgets, the entire look if you get bored of the home page. Great colors, clarity, sleek and an overall kick butt phone. iPhones have a smaller
Cons: Haven't found any yet and I don't think I will.

Summary: I've been waiting for an Android phone from Verizon with a long battery life and thin enough to fit in my pocket. I had the original Droid which was good for a first smartphone, then the Thunderbolt which was nice but a short battery life. Got the extended battery but it was the size of a brick. I'm glad I waited a bit longer to get a phone after the Droid Razr came out since the Maxx is the bee's knees!

The best android smartphone out right now.
by jore_og on February 27, 2012
Pros: -Battery! Battery! Battery! best battery life of any phone.
-Best built android phone i've ever seen. Solid quality contruction with kevlar and gorilla glass
-Still thinner than most phones,
-fast processor and LTE.
Cons: -Camera is subpar and can't compete with others(nexus,iphone).
-Screen is nice, would be awesome if this phone had a 720p screen --Motorolla locked bootloader (if you dont know what that means, then this doesn't pertain to you).
Summary: This is the best I've ever had by far. The battery is the main selling point on this phone. If you are using 4g on anyother phone, your battery ...
Summary: This is the best I've ever had by far. The battery is the main selling point on this phone. If you are using 4g on anyother phone, your battery will suffer immensily. My buddy's galaxy nexus dies very quickly, in a matter of hours. This phone has almost twice the battery capacity (1750mAh < 3300Mah). In addition to that, this phone is very well built, I love the feel of the kevlar backing. This phone is still thinner than almost every other phone on the market (even the galaxy nexus). The camera is not very good. the Galaxy nexus and Iphone cameras are better. This camera struggles in low light, and often makes grainy photos. I wish this phone had a 720p screen. although, the dispay is still very bright and nice.
All in all, this is in my opinion, the best smartphone to date. The battery life of smartphones have been a major issues since the original iphone. It looks like we finally have a phone that can keep up with 4G. BUY this phone.
FAST PHONE THAT CAN GO ALL DAY AND LOOK GREAT DOING IT!
by djaedye on February 25, 2012
Pros: 1. Battery - Amazing!
2. Bright, colorful screen bright enough to be seen in the sun
3. FAST processor with no noticeable lag
4. Smart Action app
5. Build quality is the best
6. Thin and light
7. Great reception
Cons: 1. Screen is qHD, not HD
2. Camera is not as good as other phones - still good though
3. No ICS

Summary: I am enjoying my Razr Maxx immensely. I made it my mission to kill the bat today. I unplugged it at 8:30AM and used it vigorously until 8:30PM. I made several phone calls, watched movies, loaded apps, updated the software, sent texts, played several games, listened to music, downloaded documents on Motocast, did some "Facebooking", made two long video calls on Skype, browsed the net on 4G on and off for 4 hours, browsed on WiFi for 2 hours, scanned items are the grocery store and the mall, took some pictures and shared them, and the list can go on forever. All said and done, it just hit 20%. WOW! My Droid X would have been dead by noon if I used it like this. I'm sure that with normal use it would last for close to two full days. It also charges quickly (4-5hrs). Freedom at last!
The phone is also a fast and consistent performer. I know folks are wishing it had ICS, but it will in the second quarter of this year. The screen, though not HD, is bright, sharp, colorful and has great contrast. It also has a premium feel. The build quality is the best of any phone on Verizon. I do have a little screen envy (Nexus). I also wish it had the camera of the Rezound as well as the Beats EQ/Headphones. However, I am confident that I picked the phone to live with for the next two years. It will have the battery, the quality and the speed to keep me happy.
If you are on the fence, buy this phone with confidence.

DROID RAZR MAXX isn't changing the rules - it's creating a whole new game, in a full-on assault to what's possible. At 8.99mm, it's thinner than most smartphones and it packs more battery, too. Thinner and the longest talk time of any 4G smartphone? The competition doesn't stand a chance. Seriously thin, DROID RAZR MAXX is the exact opposite of frail. It's made strong with DuPont KEVLAR fiber, while Corning Gorilla Glass defends the screen against scratches and scrapes. A force field of water-repellent nanoparticles shields the phone against water attacks - even the electrical boards inside. DROID RAZR MAXX makes "Mach 10" seem slow. Up to 10 times faster than 3G, Verizon's turbo-boosted 4G LTE speeds will have you rocketing through your everyday.

Always kill the ringer at work? Or tweak your Bluetooth settings at home? The Smart Actions app understands. It automates everyday tasks so you're free to focus on otherworldly pursuits. And even though DROID RAZR MAXX already has the longest talk time of any 4G smartphone, you can push things even further with Smart Actions battery optimization settings.
