Thanks to a massive 3,300 mAh battery Verizon had an exclusive to the longest lasting Android handset. That handset is the Droid Razr Maxx, and the massive battery gave the phone about 20 hours of battery life. That’s huge for an Android phone which isn’t exactly knowing for the amazing battery life.
Verizon’s exclusive is about to end as Motorola released a press release today saying their 1.2GHz Dual-core handset will be coming to Europe and the middle east. The device will be dropping in these areas in May, and the device is advertised to get 17.6 hours compared to the 20 advertised on Verizon.

BASINGSTOKE, UK – Apr. 03, 2012 – All day, every day – that’s how much you use your smartphone. With its impossibly thin and lightweight design, Motorola RAZR™ MAXX boasts features with the wow factor and a battery that can handle even the most demanding lifestyle. Customers across Europe and the Middle East will be able to start talking, texting, typing, watching and more for even longer from May 2012.
RAZR MAXX delivers up to 17.6¹ hours of talk time so you won’t spend your day plugged into the wall. However its 1GB RAM combined with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and Android™ operating system will ensure you are always entertained, delivering a lightning-fast user interface and the power to multi-task like never before. You can rock your playlists while checking email, breeze through photos – all day, every day, all at the same time.
Still seriously thin at just 8.99mm, RAZR MAXX is the exact opposite of frail. It’s made strong with KEVLAR® fibre, while Corning® Gorilla® Glass defends the hyper-vibrant 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display from scratches and scrapes. And every part of the Motorola RAZR MAXX is protected by a splashguard coating, which even extends to the electrical boards inside, ensuring a go anywhere, do everything attitude.
Smart Actions, the remarkably intelligent application exclusive to Motorola Mobility, pushes the limits even further by automating everyday tasks based on triggers like time of day, location, battery levels and more. Never forget to put your phone on silent in meetings, turn up the volume when your boss calls and even maximize your last ounce of power by dimming the display and turning off power hungry services.
Motorola RAZR MAXX also comes preloaded with the Motorola MotoCast™ app², giving you the power to stream or download content from a home or work computer straight to the device so your docs, pics and music are always available – anytime, anywhere. No uploading to a third party means no wasted time or forgetting to upload that crucial presentation, and everything stays protected, right on your computer.
"RAZR MAXX isn’t changing the rules – it’s creating a whole new game. Building on the RAZR heritage it combines the pinnacle of design with mind-blowing power and an incredible battery life that is perfect for people who want to push their smartphone to the limits," said Maurizio Angelone, vice president and general manager, mobile devices, EMEA, Motorola Mobility. "Whether you want to watch hours of movies, or don’t want to worry about charging between meetings, this latest smartphone from Motorola redefines boundaries and banishes the low battery beep to history."
Motorola smartphones offer some of the industry’s most powerful enterprise features available, and Motorola RAZR MAXX is no exception, including government-grade encryption and productivity tools that rival the capabilities of desktop PCs. Collaborate in real time with GoToMeeting® and create and edit files right on your phone with QuickOffice®.
