Motorola Droid Razr Maxx (Verizon) Video Transcript
Hi, I'm Brian Bennett with CNET.com and today we're taking a first look at the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. It's available on Verizon for $299.99. This Android handset is a follow up to the original and very popular Droid Razr. Everything that made the first Droid Razr a hit is here. 1.2 gigahertz dual core processor, a big 4.3 inch super amoled qHD resolution screen, Verizon 4G LTE data and 32 gigabytes of memory, you get 16 gig internal and 16 gigabyte on a micro SD card. An 8 megapixel main camera is able to capture 1080p video. There's also Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Also you get an HDMI out for outputting to HD TVs. As you might have guessed from its name, the main improvement with the Droid Razr Maxx is a much higher capacity battery. Motorola ups the battery in the Maxx to 3300 mAh, which just leaps and bounce beyond the 1780 mAh battery the first Droid Razr came with. One drawback though is that while the Droid Razr Maxx is close to the same thickness as the original Droid Razr, Motorola filled in the extra space below the home found on the first device. More mass equals more weight making the Razr Maxx slightly heavier at 5.1 ounces compared to 4.5 ounces for the original Droid Razr. Still Motorola claims the Droid Razr Maxx serves up a talk time over 21 hours and almost 16 days of standby time. It'll probably take some time to run our battery test. So check back soon for our full review. I'm Brian Bennett at CNET.com and this has been a first look at the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx.

Motorola Droid Razr Maxx (Verizon Wireless) Review
The good: Despite a beefed-up battery, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx has a slim, attractive, and durable design with the same gorgeous display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and fast Verizon 4G/LTE data speeds as its predecessor. It retains powerful multimedia chops and tight security features.
The bad: For such an advanced smartphone, the vague promise of a future Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is disappointing. Also, while a stronger battery is great, it's still not user-removable. People with small hands will find it hard to wrap them around the phone's wide frame, and the 8-megapixel camera is unimpressive.
The bottom line: The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx proves that a powerful Android superphone can remain thin yet still promise marathon-worthy battery life.
