Motorola announces DROID RAZR Maxx HD

Motorola has announced yet another smartphone today, the Maxx version of the DROID RAZR HD, and like that device, the Maxx features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear shooter, and 4G LTE. What sets the Maxx apart however is storage up to 32GB and a huge 3,300mAh battery that Motorola says will give 21 hours talk time, eight hours of web browsing on LTE or 13 hours of video playback. Even with the improved battery the device only comes in at less than 1mm thicker than the regular HD, putting it at 9.3mm.

Motorola says that the device will be available for the holiday season, however they have not announced a price.

Motorola also announced the RAZR M earlier today which features a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED Advanced display, a Snapdragon S4 processor, and more.

Yikes that is an ugly phone. I don't think these's anything worse than a fake carbon fiber cheapo plastic pattern.

It's real carbon fiber...

Except it's not...
Real carbon fiber doesn't look or shape like that.


Could be true, not sure I pretty sure it's not just plastic, though. I could be wrong.

I have the Razr Maxx and I can do heavy usage for 3-4 days straight and still will barely hit 20% - its just amazing to use and powerful.

I really hate how they do this. This "MAXX" version should've been the original version. It's just stupid having two different versions of the same phone IMO.

To take this further, I really wish all the phone companies would reduce the models they have. Have a low-end, mid-range, and high-end phone that goes across all the carriers. To give an example of what I'm talking about let's look at HTC. Their new One series (which are great phones) are GSM only. The Sprint version is called the EVO something or 'nother, and the Verizon is the Droid Incredible 4G. I get that it's because of established phones for each provider, but I'd rather they just use the "One" name across the board and make it simpler.

Maybe I'm the only one...

Well, there is always the iPhone LOL...

If they had only called it DROID RAZR Maxx HD PLUS+ I would have bought it. Missed opportunity.

Like the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch? I hate the names. >:[

Why must carriers brand phones with their ugly logos right on the front like that? Who the feck cares that the phone is locked to a specific network, in fact I'd see that as a negative selling point myself.

The Motorola logo on the front is bad enough. The front should be neat and clean IMO.
