Hands on With the DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR MAXX HD [Video]


Motorola unveiled two special devices this afternoon in New York City. The flagship of the two by far is the DROID RAZR MAXX HD, which comes with an HD (1280 x 720) display. It has the same 3300mAh battery found on the original RAZR MAXX, but the screen size is bigger at 4.7-inches. Other notables are a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, and 2MP front camera. It will come with 32GB of storage and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Next up is the DROID RAZR HD, which is essentially the same phone, but with a smaller battery, 2530mAh. It will only be offered with 16GB of storage, but you will get your choice of white or black for the body. The RAZR MAXX HD on the other hand, will only be offered in black.

Motorola promises the Jelly Bean update for both devices by the end of the year. As far as availability and pricing, we were only told that they would be available before the holidays. For now, check out our hands on video below.

    I think it was smart of Motorola to up the standard Razr HD battery to 2530 mah. This will give that user a solid day fairly easily and the Razr HD Maxx will really have it easy between charges. I don’t think the new models are as exciting and cool as the Razr and Maxx when introduced last year. I am getting more intrigued by Windows Phone 8. If the new platform pans out and HTC or Samsung come out with a version with a really good screen and a hardware keyboard with a 2500 mah or bigger battery, I’ll probably I’ll probably jump ship.
