Some would-be buyers may be confused about the Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID ZAZR MAXX. Here we take a comparative work, and answer the question: what are differences between Droid RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX?
Nearly identical specs
In most specs, DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX are nearly the same phone, which is what helps make the situation so confusing. They offers the same specs: same Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread), Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) platform, same CDMA800, CDMA1900, LTE B13 700 network, same Dual-Core 1.2GHz , Dual-Channel RAM Processor, same 16 GB of internal memory, same 4G LTE, same 4.3-in.; Super AMOLED Advanced qHD(540 x 960) display, same 8 MP rear camera and 1.3 MP front camera, same music & video playable formats and effect.

Different price points
Aside from the battery, there’s one other difference between DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX: cost. The current retail of Droid RAZR MAXX is $650 with w/o plan, while the original Droid RAZR is $600 with w/o plan. Only $50, but there’s still going to be a choice to make. Price may be the only reason I can see why someone would want to buy the original Droid RAZR over the RAZR MAXX, given the similarity in profile and the sameness in their hardware. So all other things aside, what the RAZR represents is a savings of $50 over the RAZR MAXX.
The Droid RAZR is an example of an evolutionary update that improves a little bit on what came before it. The RAZR MAXX is an example of a major upgrade which has the potential to spark a new wave in smartphones, providing big power to go with the long battery life.
Given those options, I think the RAZR MAXX is an easy choice to make for anyone who wants a robust smartphone that will work as hard as they do — and for as long.
