While there have been a number of excellent Android phones to grace the market in recent months, many of us are still undecided on which one to go for. While each boast their own unique features and selling points, you might just be looking for a ‘down to earth’ phone that can get you through the day and still cater to your smartphone fix. Well, the Motorola Razr Maxx is here to save the day, and despite some shortcomings is still a good phone to pick up.

Build quality & Design
The Razr Maxx builds upon the original Motorola Droid Razr in almost every way. The only major difference is that the ‘Maxx’ stands for the slightly larger battery, which provides some truly excellent performance on a single charge. The Razr Maxx sports the same solid build quality as the Droid Razr, complete with a Gorilla Glass front and a textured back that makes the phone easy to grip and keeps fingerprints at bay. The top of the phone has a slight ‘bump’, which is about the only design difference from the original Razr. The phone measures 5.2 x 2.7 x 0.35 inches, and despite its somewhat large size is comfortable to hold and operate with one hand.

On the top of the phone are ports for headphones, USB connectivity, and mini-HDMI. The right side has a small but easy to press power button as well as volume controls. At the bottom left side is a small panel that hides slots for your SIM card as well as microSD for additional storage space. One thing to notice is that the back battery cannot be removed, so if there are any issues you’re going to have to send the phone straight in to the service center.
