Verizon Wireless Motorola Razr MAXX

Motorola RAZR MAXXFor my second installment on the Motorola Razor MAXX. After having a week or so to evaluate this phone, I have to say Motorola and Verizon Wireless have down it again. The MAXX not only looks good, but performs like a champ. The touch screen reacts very well, doesn’t miss a beat. Very easy to expand and shrink the screen with two fingers. The picture is crystal clear.
Another great feature of the MAXX is on the unlock screen. You can go straight to the camera without having to open the phone and then find your shortcut. Once in camera mode, you can switch between still shots and movie camera without leaving the app. The native browser runs very smooth, better than my Droid X. I am very pleased with the MAXX. Below are the spec’s for the MAXX. To purchase the MAXX head over to Verizon Wireless

Verizon Wireless Motorola RAZR MAXX Review

Motorola RAZR MAXX
Motorola RAZR MAXX

Verizon Wireless was kind enough to send us a Motorola RAZR MAXX to evaluate.  First impression, this phone is fast. I currently have a Droid X from Motorola, and after about 1.5 years of faithful service, the Droid performs great, but when I got my hands on the RAZR MAXX, I realized how slow my phone is.  One of the things I use my current phone for is pictures of my kids. The thing that is frustrating about the Droid X is the amount of time it takes to boot up the camera.  On the RAZR MAXX, not only can you unlock the phone straight to the camera, it is almost instantaneously ready for a picture.  I have used plenty of phones in the past but none as fast as this one.

The 4G connection to the internet is also outstanding.  I have been a 3G user since my Droid X and this one is outstanding.

Here is a brief list of the hardware that makes this phone so fast.

16 GB internal; 16 GB microSD card pre-installed
