Once upon a time, the Motorola RAZR was the envy of every cell phone user looking for a sleek and hip-looking cell phone, holding a giant share of the mobile phone market from 2004-2007. But the RAZR’s original run ran its course, and eventually faded into obscurity as fancier, higher powered smartphones became the new must-have items.
In 2011 though, Motorola brought back the RAZR in a big way, boasting some impressive specs, a kevlar casing and the classic slim design that made the original RAZR a hit. This time around the RAZR was a part of the smartphone market, and if that market has taught us anything, it’s to always be adapting to higher technologies and innovating in any way possible.
This updated version offers a few upgrades over the original, the biggest of them being the phone’s battery life. Arguably the best on the market, the RAZR MAXX also offers other stellar specifications, making the phone a powerful force in the current smartphone landscape. The question that has to be asked though is whether or not the RAZR MAXX is worth the additional cost for its battery life versus other smartphones with powerful specs, shorter battery life and much lower costs. $299 with a two-year contract is a steep asking price for any phone, and with options available to offset lesser battery life, that high cost starts to look much more difficult to accept.
Still, the final decision is for any individual customer to decide. For more info on the RAZR MAXX, the folks at G4TV’s Attack of the Show have a very solid review of the phone available, complete with some more detailed description and comparisons of the battery life. Check it out below.
