Premium design of Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD for Verizon

Editor Rating: 3.9 / 5


Reason to get this phone

The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD Verizon offers fast performance, a big eye-popping screen, and luxurious design. It also has great call quality, lots of storage, 4G data speeds and unbeatable battery life.


Measuring 5.2 inches tall by 2.7 inches wide and just 0.37 inch thick, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD is almost as svelte and pocket-friendly as its sibling the Droid Razr HD with impressive considering its large 4.7-inch display.


It has high-capacity battery 3,300mAh. The Razr Maxx HD is substantially thicker than both the Samsung Galaxy S3 5.4 inches by 2.8 inches by 0.34 inch and the original Droid Razr, 5.1 inches by 2.7 inches by 0.28 inch.


The 5.5 ounce Droid Razr Maxx HD is a hefty beast, however, heavier than the Galaxy S3, Droid Razr HD 5.1 ounces, Droid Razr 4.5 ounces and Droid Razr Maxx that is 5.1 ounces. Just like on the Droid Razr HD, a thin silver strip circles the phone's edges, giving the device an expensive feel similar to the HTC Evo 4G LTE, iPhones, and pricey BlackBerry handsets. The solidity and sense of durability is also admirable in this phone.

Trim volume rocker

The Razr Maxx HD's only physical buttons are a trim volume rocker and power key placed on the right side, chiseled from metal as well. There is no dedicated shutter button for launching the camera with one touch. On the left side are ports for HDMI and Micro-USB along with slots for micro SD and LTE SIM cards.


A standard 3.5mm headphone jack sits up top, which is where it should be. Droid Razr Maxx HD's has 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, proximity and ambient light sensors, as well as a wide notification light.  


A huge improvement Motorola has made to its new Razrs is the enhanced displays. The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD features a vast 4.7-inch screen that is much sharper than the displays used by the first Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx. Those devices had qHD resolution 960x540 screens with a lower pixel count.

Moreover, the Razr Maxx HD's display produces vivid colors because it uses AMOLED screen technology. That certainly made the explosions and Emma Stone's red dress in the Gangster Squad trailer pop. The phone can display icons for various phone functions on the lock screen that users can jump directly to.


Motorola has grafted its custom interface over Android as well, essentially the remnants of the reviled Moto blur UI of years past. Luckily it is not intrusive and even provides a few handy perks over basic Android. The phone offers two home screens to start with, but you can have a total of seven to fill with widgets and application shortcuts. The primary home screen occupies the leftmost pane and scrolls from left to right. An interesting and useful tool is the Quick Settings screen that appears when you swipe left from the main home screen. There you have access to often used functions such as ringtones, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and Airplane mode.

It is one of the slickest home-screen UI gadgets since HTC's legendary Sense weather clock. It features three interactive discs that display analog and digital clocks, weather and battery level.



The Droid Razr Maxx HD's major weakness is the production of subpar images. Because its camera is in bottom line it captures unimpressive images. The phone is filled with Verizon bloat ware as well which is also negative to it.
