Motorola Droid RAZR HD

Verge Review

Last year, Motorola relaunched its RAZR brand with a pair of new smartphones, the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR Maxx for Verizon Wireless. While the resurrected RAZRs impressed with solid build quality and remarkable thinness (for the time, at least), they were saddled with disappointing displays and less than cutting edge processors. But Motorola decided to tweak its original formula, and this year’s RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD offer an improved screen, cutting edge Snapdragon processor, and a...

    I've owned the RAZR Maxx HD for a little over three months now and I must say that I am very impressed and surprised at how much I enjoy my experience with this phone. I love the premium materials and the build quality of this device and the call quality I get from this phone has been the best I've ever experienced. The speaker on this thing so loud that I have to keep the volume levels in check at times. The battery is really what made me change the way I use a smart phone. I never ever have to worry about how to conserve the life of my phone. I can hammer at this phone all day and then some and never have to think about the battery level at all. A big BIG batter really does change the way you use a smartphone for the better. The display isn't the best, but it definitely isn't the worst either and the skin is so minimal that it may as well be stock Android. All in all, this is a durable, snappy, fast, and premium device with the life of the Energizer Bunny.
