Background and Identification ¶
The Droid RAZR Maxx was released at the beginning of 2012 by Motorola for the Verizon network. It has all of the same features as the 2011 Droid RAZR, with the exception of its larger, 3300mAh Li-Ion battery, an 85% increase in capacity over the 1780mAh battery in the original RAZR. Due to the battery's larger physical size, the RAZR MAXX's overall thickness is larger at 8.99mm. Motorola marketed the Droid RAZR as its flagship smartphone to compete directly with the iPhone 4S and other high profile Android phones. The name Droid RAZR is an homage to Motorola's original game-changing cell phone, the v3 RAZR. Much like the original RAZR, the Droid RAZR used its slim profile as a key selling point. It is carried by Verizon Wireless and is sold at locations such as Amazon Wireless.
The Droid RAZR is fairly easy to distinguish from other devices. Its physical appearance is quite unique, boasting a slightly octagonal shape with squared corners and a true Kevlar back cover. Though it was originally released in black only, it was eventually offered in white and purple, as well.
