UPDATE: My Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx Review is Live!
I’m in the process of writing a Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX Review – Stay Tuned!
My wife and I celebrated Valentine’s Day early this year and somehow ended up walking through our local mall at the end of the night. As a result, we walked by the Verizon Wireless store, remembered that we were up for our “New Every Two” contract renewal and decided to go see if anything “Wowed Us”.
I had previously done some “research” – which consisted of surfing some of my favorite tech blogs – and noted that the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus were the current front-runners of Verizon’s Droid lineup. (Side note: I don’t have anything against Apple, or the iPhone, I’m just not excited about it, currently.) After my research, I knew what the decision would come down to:
Would I prefer the Nexus’ superior display and stock Ice Cream Sandwhich(ICS), or the Razr Maxx’s awesome battery life with ICS potential down the road?
As a previous user of the HTC Droid Incredible(with dismal battery life), I was pretty much decided on the Razr Maxx, but since we wanted to get the same phone this time around(she had the Original Droid before) I wanted my wife to be on-board, too.
To cut a long story short, we both liked the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX(especially with ICS looming), Verizon was having a buy-one-get-one-free deal, and we pulled the trigger. Apparently lots of others had pulled the trigger, too, as they were out of stock and had to ship them to us. As fate would have it, they arrived on Valentine’s Day(Two business days later) and we managed to get them activated and charged by the end of the night.
Initial impression: I made the right choice, but we’ll see how it fairs in my full review.
Question(s): Anything specific you’d like to see included in the review? Let me know in the comments.
