Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX Review

Motorola's DROID RAZR (just the RAZR for international users) is every bit the leap forward in phone aesthetics as the original RAZR was way back in the day. But it's a hollow victory: despite the shocking thinness and jet fighter style, the RAZR does little to rise above its contemporaries in actual hardware capability or utility. Enter the DROID RAZR MAXX, a very slightly adjusted version with an extra millimeter or two and a battery capacity that nearly doubles the original, released just two months after for the same price on Verizon. So the question for new buyers is: form or function?

Verizon drops DROID RAZR price to $199 sans SD card

Good things come to those who wait. If you waited a few months before buying a Motorola DROID RAZR on Verizon, that good thing is a shiny $100 discount. The 16GB version of the DROID RAZR is now $199.99 on Verizon's website, and should be the same at most corporate stores (though retail and online partners might be a little behind the curve). The 32GB version is now $299.99. The price drop is a little misleading - both models have 16BG of internal memory, but the more expensive one also comes with a 16GB card, which the cheaper version lacks.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus extended battery half off in-stores and online

So you ran out and snatched up a brand new Samsung Galaxy Nexus last night at your nearest Verizon or Best Buy and love it right? The device comes with a hefty 1,850 mAh battery that should last plenty long but we know there are some that want more.

The HTC Rezound’s 2750 mAh extended battery is massive

LTE uses a lot of juice - there's just no way around that at present. So it's always nice to see a manufacturer embrace that truth and offer a first-party battery for reliable and worry-free extended use. That said - wow. The extended battery for the brand-new HTC Rezound is gigantic. HTCpedia got their hands on one and took the following photo, next to the standard battery:

DROID RAZR Battery is removable, If you dare

When the new Motorola DROID RAZR was first announced we all quickly learned that the battery was not removable. The back of the device was attached for good, making users unable to remove or swap the battery should they choose. This isn't a huge issue but many weren't happy to hear the news. Not to mention the modding and dev community relies on battery pulls somewhat often -- I've had a few of those moments myself. Lucky for us a loyal reader has just received his shiny new DROID RAZR and tore it down himself to find that the back actually does come off, it just takes a little effort.

PowerSkin debuts battery case for HTC Amaze 4G

Over the last few months, there have been several expanded batteries launch for Android smartphones.

‘Battery Upgrade’ malware shows users how to make their phone vulnerable

Is anybody feeling some 90s nostalgia right about now? It seems like hardly a day goes by where we don't hear about some sneaky new way for hackers and identity thieves to compromise incautious Android users' phones. The latest is a "battery manager" app that not only compromises your data, but gives you a quick lesson on how to open up the "unknown sources" app install method your phone for easy exploitation. Once installed the app steals your phone number, email address, unique IMEI code and other personal information.
