1) Razr Maxx Revealed

The handset appears very much like its Droid Razr predecessor, which Motorola launched in November.

The phone has the same textured, gray back as the Razr, as well as the 8-megapixel rear and 1.3MP front cameras for photography fans.

You'd expect a phone with a 3,300mAh battery to be a fat little gadget. Not so for the Razr Maxx, which measures only 8.99 mm, or 0.35 inches, thick. That's roughly the size of Samsung's Galaxy S II phones, which were heralded as super-thin and powerful.

4) Side-by-Side Comparison

For perspective on Razr Maxx' thinness, see it underneath Verizon's new LG Spectrum, which measures 0.40 inches thick.

5) Spectrum and Maxx

These two phones are a testament to large-screened Android handsets. The LG Spectrum has a 4.5-inch true high-definition display-the kind you find on LG HD TVs. The Droid Razr Maxx isn't shabby either, sporting a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED (active-matrix organic LED) Advanced screen with 540-by-960 resolution.

6) Smart Actions

One of the key applications on the Droid Razr and Razr Maxx is Smart Actions, which automates toilsome daily tasks for play and work, such as playing music when using headphones and using the battery extender to turn off power-draining apps.
