The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is one of the newest phones on the market. I have owned the phone for just over a week, and have come up with a review.I have broken down several categories to discuss.
The very first thing I noticed about the phone was its looks. The massive screen, along with the touch style buttons are very impressive. The carbon fiber design on the back looks good as well. Along with the pleasing looks, the phone is very light, much lighter than my Droid X was. My friends have different phones, and out of the many different kinds, mine is definitely the lightest and best looking. I have received so many compliments in such a short time. With that being said, my first impression was that it felt a little cheap, considering what I paid for it. After closer observation, I do not feel this way anymore, I do think it will be a reliable phone. The Razr Maxx is one of the best looking phones I have ever seen.
Androids are notorious for weak operating systems. With my Droid X, crashes were common and I dealt with non-responsive apps on a daily basis. Basic operation of the phone was “glitchy”, and lags were not out of the ordinary. The phone was designed for much more than the underdeveloped operating system could provide. I was a little nervous about getting another Android, but I am a firm believer in second chances. I have yet to find a single software glitch in my Droid Razr Maxx. I have not had any crashes from the operating system itself, or apps. The phone is simply lightning fast and flawless. The interface is pretty much the same. The apps menu is a little different, as there are multiple pages to scroll horizontally, as opposed to one large apps page. There are a couple new standard apps, which provide some nice new features. The screen resolution is incredibly sharp. I am impressed every time I look at a picture or video. The camera is very high quality.
The last category deals more with Verizon than the phone itself. I have service everywhere. Part of this can be attributed to the phone, but once again, Verizon has delivered on the service side of things. I have 3g almost everywhere, and the unbelievably fast 4g in most cities. I am so impressed by these things.
I have no complaints about the phone. That is the bottom line. I have tried to find problems with it, but have been unable to do so. I do wish the price was a little lower, but for the overall quality and features, it is so worth it. On a scale from 1-10, I give the Droid Razr Maxx a 9.5. The reason for that is it is a perfect phone. The only drawback is the price, but I do think it is well worth it.
