Motorola’s Droid RAZR Maxx sounds like a refreshing change of pace in a world of ever-thinner phones with more and more demanding hardware. Rather than get bogged-down in those races, the RAZR Maxx is comfortable letting its belt loose, packing on a little weight, but doing so in order to make its user experience better than ever. Depending on just how heavy your usage patterns are, the RAZR Maxx and its 3300mAh battery will likely have enough juice to get you through a solid day of smartphone use, never having to stop for a recharge. In fact, if you had someone to talk to for that long, Motorola claims you could see about 21 hours of talk time on a single charge. That’s a pretty bold claim; will it hold up to testing? We might get a chance to find out soon, as a rumor suggests Motorola will be streaming video of an extended test to show just how long the RAZR Maxx’s battery really lasts.
Supposedly, Motorola is coordinating this spectacle for February 6. We haven’t heard if Verizon will be involved as well, or if there’s to be any out-in-public component to the demonstration only that there will be a stream available online. Even without knowing more of what to expect, it sounds like an opportunity for a lot of fun, putting the RAZR Maxx up against its peers in a trial-by-fire. While we’re curious about that 21-hour voice figure, we’d also like to see how the Android fares with more common tasks, like getting into an hours-long YouTube binge. We’ll be looking for more info on this event once February gets a little closer.
Sales of the RAZR Maxx are expected to begin on January 26.
