The Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD are Android-based, 4G LTE-capable smartphones designed by Motorola as the successor to the Droid Razr series released nearly a year prior. Notable changes from their predecessors include 720p resolution displays and increased display size while maintaining similar overall dimensions. Additionally, the battery capacity on the standard Razr HD improved 42% from its predecessor. Both go by the model number XT926. These phones were released on October 18, 2012 exclusively on Verizon Wireless in the United States. The Motorola Razr HD (non-Droid branded variants, model number XT925) were available as international or global phones in Europe, Latin America, Australia and Canada as early as October 2nd, 2012[7].

History

The Droid Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD were announced alongside the more compact[8] Droid Razr M on 5 September 2012. The Razr HD and M models first shipped with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The Razr HD models were both upgraded to Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) starting December 3rd, 2012.[9] Earlier leaked code names include the Motorola DROID Fighter and Motorola DROID Vanquish [10][11].

Features

Motorola Mobility has chosen to differentiate the Droid series from other Android devices primarily by focusing on a superior battery capacity both for the standard and Maxx variants. An often compared competitor, the Samsung Galaxy SIII, has a 2100mAh battery compared to the standard 2530mAh Razr HD and the 3300mAh Razr Maxx HD[12]. Motorola claims that this equates to 20% on the Razr HD and 50% longer battery life on the Razr HD Maxx. Other critical reviews have noted the durability and rugged feel when describing the DuPont Kevlar backing[13]. Additional durability is touted with a Corning Gorilla Glass display claiming to minimize scratches and an internal water-repellent nano-coating to resist liquids from affecting components.

Additionally, the Razr HD has a 4.7 inch 1,280×720 resolution Super AMOLED display with a 312 pixels per inch pixel density.[14][15] The phone has a 8 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 ("Krait") processor with LTE and NFC. The phone has 1 GB of RAM.[16]

Droid Razr Maxx HD

At the same time of launch, Motorola released a Maxx variant of the standard Droid Razr HD featuring a higher battery capacity. The Razr Maxx HD is equipped with a 3300mAh Li-Ion battery, a 30% increase in capacity over the 2530mAh battery in the standard Razr HD. Due to the battery's larger physical size, the Razr Maxx HD's overall thickness increases by 0.9mm over the standard variant at a total thickness of 9.3mm.

The Droid Razr Maxx HD is only available with a black bezel color.

Additionally, the Droid Maxx HD is only available with 32GB internal storage--double the internal storage of the standard Razr HD's 16GB.

Developer Edition

The Droid Razr HD Developer Edition[17] went on sale direct through Motorola on October 18th, 2012[18] featuring an unlocked bootloader allowing the ability to flash custom ROMs onto the phone, and also providing easy root access. This device is marketed primarily to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network users in the United States whose bootloaders cannot be unlocked through Motorola's unlocking program. The international (non-US) Motorola Razr HD UTMS/LTE variant sold in parts of Europe, Latin America, Australia and Canada can be, however.[19]

The Droid Razr HD Developer Edition is only available with a black bezel color in the standard 2530mAh battery configuration; there is no Droid Razr Maxx HD Developer Edition.
