Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX – the smartphone battery life king

Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX
I have a dream. That one day, I shall own a smartphone that I can use consistently all day without having to nurse it to last the day before running out of power. Trust me: I have tried all sorts. Android smartphones, Blackberry smartphones, Symbian/Belle smartphones, iOS smartphones and more. While some have come close, not one of those devices have made possible the dream mobile life that I desire. They all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of Mo.

But then, one smartphone stands out so far from the rest that I am beginning to crave it. It has a 3300 mAh battery (that’s almost twice the capacity, compared to any of its direct competitors) and such an outstanding rating that I must try my hands on it. In the battery tests at GSMArena, the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX returned:

  1. a mind-numbing 20 hours and 24 minutes talk time (Galaxy Note comes in a distant 2nd place at 12 hours 47 minutes)
  2. 7 hours and 23 minutes of web browsing via Wi-Fi (HTC Radar comes a close 2nd place at 7 hours 17 minutes)
  3. 14 hours and 17 minutes of non-stop video playback (iPhone 4S comes in a distant 2nd place at 9 hours 24 minutes)

What a phone!

With these figures, the RAZR MAXX is the undisputed battery life champion in the smartphone world. If I ever get my hands on this device, all other things being equal, it will remain my primary smartphone till someone else beats it.

With an 8 megapixel auto-focus camera, Dual-core 1.2 GHz, 4.3-inch display, 16GB built-in memory and Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich, it isn’t a bad trade-off for the superb battery life. As a matter of fact, the RAZR MAXX’s specs are very up-to-date.I really just get tired of looking for a charging point for my smartphones every few hours. The RAZR MAXX is the best solution to that problem at the moment, and it is in a class by itself. Can someone please send me this baby?

It is a pity that Motorola Mobility are not so visible in these parts as they once were. I remember the Motorola A008 Accompli, a touchscreen clamshell that I owned years back with fondness.

Oh, don’t forget that the RAZR MAXX is impossibly thin at 9mm. I still keep wondering how Motorola were able to fit in that 3300 mAh battery in such a thin profile. Witchcraft. Absolutely.

  1. This would be the sort of phone “made_in_heaven” for Nigeria of nepa_years!

    But with the CURRENT new leaf PHCN seems to have turned (let us hope it is NOT a flash in the pan!), outstanding battery life may not be so critical anymore.

    Pocket_chargers, car_charger, USB_,changing, efficient (for now?) PHCN.

    unless of course you spend most of your day away from civilization with the orangutangs and lions, where there is no electricity..;~)

    1. I am using droid RAZR its the best android phone I have ever used since I started using android phones with a long lasting battery it takes the battery 6 to 7hrs to fully charged its full of enjoyable

  2. I think six hours, but its worth it. This phone should’ve been the third on Mr. Mo’s top smartphones this year after Samsung’s GS3 and Nokia’s 808 PureView

  3. If I ever get my hands on this device, all other things being equal, it will remain my primary smartphone till someone else beats it.

    I doubt that with the Nokia PureView around the corner. I understand you are also a sucker for superb camera on your smartphones. Of course you can carry multiple devices to take advantage of both worlds.

    A superb battery life no doubt and I hope others will start including such high capacity batteries in smartphones henceforth.

  4. Oh, don’t forget that the RAZR MAXX is impossibly thin at 9mm. I still keep wondering how Motorola were able to fit in that 3300 mAh battery in such a thin profile. Witchcraft. Absolutely.

    Technology is witchcraft anyway, only familiarity has dampened the elements of fascination about it.

  5. Funny enough my newly acquired Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray has a pretty decent battery life. If I’m using it heavily it can last for an entire day without needing to be recharged until late at night. With light to medium use I recharge every two days.

    If only more of these smartphones had even smarter, longer lasting battery life…then we wouldn’t need to buy a new one every couple of years. Forget the witchcraft, it’s a conspiracy to get our money!!!!
