Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX is a mid level cellphone launched some years ago, in 2012, coming with a 4.3 inches display, a good performance Dual-Core processor speeding at 1200 megahertz, and 2 cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front facing camera. But let's get into a bit more detail.

About its aspect, the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX is manufactured with Kevlar, giving this cellphone a quality look and better resistance. Being just 0.35 inches thick,this device is slim and comfortable. It appears that Motorola forgot about optimizing the weight in this 5.11 oz phone.

Motorola decided to equip this phone with a TI OMAP4430 chip, holding a powerful Dual-Core processor speeding at 1200 megahertz with 1 GB of RAM memory. Graphic intensive apps and games usually eats lots of processing time, so it uses an additional PowerVR SGX540 GPU working at 304 megahertz to unload the processor. A good advantage of this device is its quite large 16 GB internal memory and an SD memory slot, which allows you to install hundreds of apps and games without any trouble.

This device is equipped with two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.3 megapixels front side camera. It also shoots 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 fps. In addition, this phone's camera also has a couple of good features like auto-focus, flash and digital image stabilization.

Motorola packed this cellphone with a very good 4.3-inches screen, and a resolution of 960 x 540 , which makes it hard to distinguish the pixels forming the screen. This screen uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

The Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX counts with Wi-Fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a modem), LTE (4G) fast connection type or the fastest 3G internet connection, over HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers and it works with both GSM and CDMA carriers.

This phone features a 3300 mAh high capacity Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this phone with an incredibly long battery life. According to Motorola, this phone has a reported talk time of 21.5 hours and a stand by time of 379 hs. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is not removable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins losing capacity, even though with such a huge battery size you will probably discard this device before that becomes a real problem.

This cellphone also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (allows communication with other devices, computers, and accessories), GPS and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

Motorola sells this cellphone for just $ 150, which is really cheap comparing with other similar phones. If you want this phone to take lots of pictures, need a device for work, are looking for a gaming device or want a social device, this phone is definitely a great option for you.
