Motorola X, Droid Razr Ultra, Maxx and Mini: What to Expect When You’re Expecting

Guess who’s back, back again? Moto’s back, tell a friend. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. On a more serious note though, Motorola does appear to be back in business.

motorola-logo

The business of making smartphones, that is. And specifically, the business of making smartphones like no other OEM. True, that hasn’t always been a good thing, with the company’s recent financial woes standing as a witness.

But ultimately, how can you not root for the inventors of the iconic “Droid” term and the impressive (at the time) first members of the family? Not to mention the makers of the Maxx devices, one of the few that have focused on battery life at least as much as on cute designs or raw power?

Motorola

Still, a glorious past can’t guarantee a bright and prosperous future, which is why you can say Motorola’s fate depends on one thing and one thing only – upcoming product launches. Namely, the releases of the legendary by now Moto X, plus the rumored new trio of Droid Razr phones.

The four are just about confirmed, but at the same time remain awfully secretive for gadgets that are likely one month (or less) away from their formal intros. That said and without further ado, here’s everything we know about them:

Moto X rumor roundup

Right off the bat, every report, tip and leak revealed in the past months has emphasized one thing: the Moto X (or Google X Phone, as it was previously codenamed) will not be a high-end device. Therefore, it will not directly fight the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S4, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z Ultra and so on and so forth.

Moto X-2

Instead, what Motorola is trying to do with the X is offer a budget alternative for tech-savvy folks that simply can’t afford to pay the piper on one of the above mentioned “monsters”, but still want a solid, premium (-ish) user experience.

And that actually brings us to what we think will be the main focus of Motorola’s future marketing efforts – experience. Not specs, not numbers, not cold facts, not hardware, but subjective user experience.

Sounds like a tough sell, I know, but that’s where that whopping budget should kick in, trying to make people understand that, through software optimizations and wise design choices, the X will feel like no phone released before. It will be easy to hold, smooth as butter, elegant, filled with sensors that you actually need and void of the bloatware that makes UIs like HTC’s Sense so annoying.

Moto X

That doesn’t mean Moto X’s specs will not be in any way important or will put this at the bottom of the Android food chain. Not at all, as rumor has it the phone will come with a 720p display (probably a 4.7-incher), dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, 10 MP rear camera, 4G LTE speeds and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in tow.

Now, can you imagine all that in a customizable, slim and sleek package costing a mere $300… outright? And can you really tell me you’ll give a damn it’s not quad-core, Full HD or doesn’t pack a 13 MP camera at that point? I didn’t think so.

Droid Razr Ultra

Okay, spec junkies, this one’s for you. Initially thought to be a budget-conscious mid-ranger too, the Ultra is now believed to go head to head with all the Android giants in terms of cold numbers.

Rumor has it the thing will be a 5-incher with Full HD screen, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU and 2 GB of RAM. A 10 MP rear camera is also in the mix, though that doesn’t sound so spectacular, to be frank.

Droid-Ultra

Then again, the design looks like a winner to me, being reminiscent of old Razr phones, but at the same time a very clear step towards the future. You will get Kevlar backing and a solid overall exterior, plus a fairly slim profile.

Most likely to be unveiled on August 8 alongside its “cousins” (to be detailed below), the Razr Ultra might land in Europe besides America, of course sans the “Droid” branding.

New Droid Razr Maxx

Just like last year, Motorola is tipped to unveil two high-end phones, one “regular” and one with extra battery juice. Given the 2012 Razr Maxx was a 4.3-incher with a ginormous 3,300 mAh battery, we can’t even begin to imagine what kind of ticker the 5-inch follow-up might pack.

Droid_Maxx

4,000 mAh? 4,500 mAh? 5,000? Nah, that’s just crazy. Or is it? Anyways, aside from the battery bump (and the added heft that will go with it), chances are the Ultra and Maxx will rock the exact same specs.

Droid Razr Mini

What, you didn’t really think Motorola was going to pass the booming “Mini” market niche, did you? Of course not. Unfortunately, we don’t know very much about this Razr Mini, other than it will probably sport a 4.3-inch screen.

Droid Mini Ultra Maxx

That would put it on par with Samsung’s GS4 Mini and HTC’s One Mini in terms of size, so we could be seeing quite a brawl between the three for a big piece of the mid-sized, mid-range phone pie.

In the words of the great Porky Pig, that’s all folks, but it’s also only the beginning. What do you guys think, will we be saying hello again to Moto following the releases of these four phones or a soapy farewell?

Motorola hello again

Could the Moto X change how we view the “spec war”? Will the Razr Ultra, Maxx and Mini be able to take on Samsung and HTC’s big players? Let us know down below.

Official Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx HD Specs, Features and Release Date

The hottest news in the smartphone market today may have been Nokia’s showcase of their new Lumia smartphone and their tweet hinting a new Android smartphone in the works, but in my opinion Motorola stole the showcase with their release of 3 new Android smartphone.  In their New York-based media event earlier today, the company announced one of the best smartphones they ever did announce, the Droid RAZR Maxx HD – basically a variant of the Droid RAZR HD but with a larger battery.  Motorola decided to unveil both these smartphones at the same time to avoid the mistake they made with the release of Droid RAZR and the Droid RAZR Maxx.

Detailed Specs and Features

Processor: 1.5 GHz dual core processor

Operating System: Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich (upgradable to Jelly Bean)

RAM: 1 GB

Storage: 32 GB onboard memory, MicroSD support

Cameras: 8 MP rear with 1080p video capture and 1.3 MP front camera

Display: 4.7 inch Super AMOLED HD Screen with 720p resolution

Battery: 3,300 mAh (Up to 8 hours of web browsing, 32 hours mixed usage

Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0 LE+EDR, LTE support and Wi-Fi with Mobile Hotspot

Others: GPS, Corning Gorilla Glass display, DuPont Kevlar casing

Size: 131.9 x 67.9 x 9.3mm, 157g

Although the Droid RAZR Maxx HD comes with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, a Jelly Bean upgrade will be available soon.  This phone will come to Verizon but neither Verizon nor Motorola could reveal the pricing details.  However, since the Razr M will be going for $99 on a contract, the Razr HD may be priced at $199 with contract.  Motorola says that this smartphone will come to the stores by the end of the year.  International availability was however not mentioned for this model.

Motorola markets the Razr Maxx HD as a remarkably thin phone with a high performance battery that can provide up to 13 straight hours of video playback.  There are also a ton of features that the Razr Maxx HD comes with including enhanced help guides, an interactive user interface with useful widgets on the home screen, business ready features and NFC capability.  All the Droid Razrs that Motorola unveiled today run on Android Ice Cream Sandwich but there was a promise of Jelly Bean updates to come soon.

Verizon Motorola Droid Razr Now Offered for $0.01 at Amazon Wireless

Verizon is currently offering 4G LTE-enabled Motorola Droid Razr for no more than a penny on-contract at the Amazon Wireless. The handset is one of Motorola’s and Amazon’s best-seller because it offers features that majority of Android users are looking for; thinner, lighter and faster.

Motorola Droid Razr is in 6th place in Amazon’s top ten best-selling smartphones as of the second week of August. Samsung Galaxy S3 still dominates and has been taking the first place for several weeks now.

Motorola’s and Samsung’s devices are currently among the most popular and most viewed smartphones in Amazon since July simply because their prices are the ones that often fluctuate. Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx dropped prices at least twice since early June.

It looks like Verizon is using Motorola Droid Razr’s popularity well and offering it for $0.01 is one of the best ways to attract new customers. Reviews also show that the device has become one of the most preferred mid-range Android phones in the global market and here’s why;

Hardware – Droid Razr was released in November 2011 with TI OMAP dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. It was one of the most powerful devices in the last quarter of 2011 and it remains on such level today even if there were quite a few quad-core devices released. Motorola has given the device 1GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and microSD slot.

OS – Though it was released with Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box, the recent Ice Cream Sandwich update added to the popularity of the device; new features and functionality were also added.

Display – One of the most notable features of Droid Razr is the Super AMOLED screen that offers a resolution as high as 540 x 960 pixels offering up to 256ppi density. The downside of this is that it becomes a battery hog.

Connectivity – The very highlight of this device is its capability to connect to an LTE network, the fastest connection offered by operators around the world today.

Its design is also one of the things that made it so attractive. Many would say it is a smartphone with an attitude and the fact that it offers really impressive display and capable of connecting to a 4G LTE network just made it irresistible. If you want to know how cool this smartphone is, here is the link to the Verizon Motorola Droid Razr offered for $0.01 from Amazon.

Motorola DROID RAZR HD Coming to US Market

The Motorola Droid Razr HD phone is now headed for the U.S. market. The device, which is also known as the Motorola XT926, was recently spotted on the Federal Communications Commission website. This is commonly the final step for devices before they are officially announced and make their way to stores.

The agency tested the device’s 3G and 4G radios as well as its Near Field Communications capabilities. The device is said to be coming to Verizon as it is compatible with Big Red’s 4G LTE network.

From its name, it is clear that it will be sporting a High Definition screen. This display will span 4.3 inches diagonally and possibly have a 720p resolution. It is also expected to be equipped with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with a clock speed of 1.5GHz, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a full gigabyte of RAM. The device might sport a Kevlar body and a rear camera with a 13-megapixel sensor. Many are hoping that it will have the 3300mAh battery that is also found on the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. This battery supposedly allowed the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX to outsell the popular iPhone at Verizon because of its long-lasting power.

It is still unknown when exactly the Motorola Droid Razr HD will be announced by Motorola and Verizon, especially since Verizon is still enjoying the benefits that the Samsung Galaxy S III is bringing the company. It is speculated that those interested in purchasing the device would need to wait from one to two months before the device becomes available. Verizon most likely would have to take into consideration the launch date of the upcoming iPhone which will be around September to October and launch the device either before or sometime after the iPhone arrives. The phone’s price tag is still unknown, but it should naturally be fairly competitive with the iPhone as well as other Android devices in the same market segment.

Amazon Now Offers Galaxy S3 for $139.99, Drops Prices of 3 Others

Amazon Wireless launches hot mid-summer sale starting July 17th running for a limited time to give Android lovers great deals to choose from. Best-selling phones like Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC EVO, Motorola Droid Razr, and Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G are now being offered at low prices; only Sprint and Verizon participated in this promotion and there’s no word if AT&T will also be jumping on the bandwagon.

The much appreciated Samsung Galaxy S3 from Sprint now appears at Amazon with a listing price of $139.99. Previously, this dual-core ICS smartphone was listed with $149.99 on a two-year contract. Also, the carrier’s HTC EVO 4G LTE which was listed with $129.99 price tag is now offered for just $79.99.

Sprint has recently activated some of its LTE base stations offering data transfer speed of up to 8 Mbps. This promotion is actually not about selling its popular smartphones but also promoting its new service.

On the other hand, Verizon is also offering two of its devices starting with Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G which once was listed for $79.99 but now offered for just $0.01, or literally free. This is a dual-core, LTE-capable device and one of Verizon’s most popular smartphones. Another handset currently offered for free is the Motorola Droid Razr (black only); listed with $0.01 price tag on Amazon, it was previously offered at $99.99.

The US is on a high-speed course to upgrading its infrastructures on telecommunications and the Big Red is one of the most aggressive companies as far as upgrade is concerned. It is predicted by experts and analysts that by 2013 a huge percentage of smartphone users will be subscribing to 4G LTE connectivity. Thus, no time is wasted to promote such service as early as now.

Sprint’s and Verizon’s offerings are only valid for people who are willing to sign up for a new two-year individual contract or add a line to existing family plan. For more details, please check the links below:

Top 3 Cases for Motorola Droid Razr Series

Motorola DROID Razr Maxx is one of the coolest smartphones released this year. Aside from its customized user interface, it’s design was built to impress both tech enthusiasts and Android lovers. But while it comes with already great case, owners often find ways to make their devices even look better that’s why they look out for new cases that could complement their phones’ physical features. That being, here are three of the most popular Motorola Droid Razr series cases.

[easyazon-link asin=”B005XBLAA0″ locale=”us”]Otterbox Defender Series Hybrid Case & Holster[/easyazon-link]

[easyazon-image align=”none” asin=”B005XBLAA0″ locale=”us” height=”160″ src=”https://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41OIAnE8bXL._SL160_.jpg” width=”160″]

Otterbox is one of the top-rated makers of smartphone cases and while their products are often accepted and lauded by enthusiasts, they have been able to perfect the case for Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. The Ottebox Defender Series Hybrid case offers dual-layer protection for your handset.

The inner shell is a thin yet hard cover which definitely protects your phone against shocks, whereas the outer layer is rubberized to give users a good grip of it. Droid Razr series are so thin that even if you add these two layers for protection, you would still have a normally thick smartphone on your palm. Quality-wise, Otterbox never ceases to impress both new and repeat buyers.

[easyazon-block align=”center” asin=”B005XBLAA0″ locale=”us”]

[easyazon-cta align=”center” asin=”B005XBLAA0″ height=”42″ key=”amazon-us-tall-orange” locale=”us” width=”120″]

[easyazon-link asin=”B003ZZXLHQ” locale=”us”]Seidio CONVERT Combo[/easyazon-link]

[easyazon-image align=”none” asin=”B003ZZXLHQ” locale=”us” height=”110″ src=”https://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31mxfIiaJQL._SL110_.jpg” width=”110″]

Among the cases for Droid Razr series that received really good feedback are the ones from Seidio. While the maker strives to produce cases with great design, it never compromises the quality and durability of its products. Such claim is evident when you look Seidio CONVERT Combo.

This case comes in 5 parts:

Screen Protector. You will know if you’re using the one cheaper quality if bubbles form between the protector and the screen; this one sticks lightly to the screen without any bubbles of some sort.

Innocase. This will come in 2 parts as well but both snap together to embrace your phone. At this point, your handset already has an added protection.

Rubber Cover. A rubberized covering will also embrace Innocase and serves as a shock absorber. It is also essential to the stability of the next cover.

Exoskeleton. With your phone embraced by a rubberized cover, the outer plastic layer will have a good grip of it. This is actually the final protection your phone gets directly.

Holster. The last part of Seidio Convert Combo case is the holster that also adds some sort of protection but it is actually designed for convenience.

[easyazon-cta align=”center” asin=”B003ZZXLHQ” height=”42″ key=”amazon-us-tall-orange” locale=”us” width=”120″]

[easyazon-link asin=”B0064R6VWO” locale=”us”]XT912 Shell Holster Combo W/ Kick-Stand[/easyazon-link]

[easyazon-image align=”none” asin=”B0064R6VWO” locale=”us” height=”160″ src=”https://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31wxxtybOWL._SL160_.jpg” width=”160″]

This case is specifically built for Motorola Droid Razr. Verizon offers it on its website with a high price but it’s listed on Amazon cheaper. As much as it wants to add protection to your handset, it does not compromise the thinness of your Droid Razr. Apparently, this case was built with precision as all the ports and holes are in line, although only the back, right and left sides are protected but that explains why it is a bit cheaper than the two cases previously mentioned here.

The kickstand is the one that receives many thumbs up as it allows landscape and portrait viewing. This case is minimalist so you cannot expect any more added designs and features. But if you’re looking for a case that provides just the right protection for our phone at the right price, this could be your best bet.

[easyazon-block align=”center” asin=”B0064R6VWO” locale=”us”]

[easyazon-cta align=”center” asin=”B0064R6VWO” height=”42″ key=”amazon-us-tall-orange” locale=”us” width=”120″]

There could be many cases available in the market that would offer your Motorola Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx the protection they need, but these cases have already gone beyond the expectations of the owners. Before you actually set your eyes on any case, why don’t you take time to see what these products can offer you?

Official Android 4.0 ICS Update for DROID Razr, Razr Maxx Now Available

Motorola Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx will get the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) update after Motorola and Verizon pushed the packages for users to download. As always, Google’s newly-acquired company dedicated a page on its website citing the features this update brings as well as the step-by-step tutorial on how to update the devices successfully, although this comes as a downloadable PDF file. The roll out is expected to start today. These updates tend to happen in phases so it make take a little time, just be patient and check it later today if it’s not yet available for your device.

Originally, both Droid Razr smartphones came with Android 2.3 Gingerbread pre-installed, a stable version with limited features. For phones with a lot of potential, the ICS update actually arrived later than expected and Motorola didn’t care to explain the delay.

On top of tons of features offered by Android 4.0 ICS stock firmware, the packages intended for Motorola Droid Razr devices have added functionality. Here are a few of them worth mentioning;

Customizable Home Screen. Both Droid Razr and Razr Maxx owners would be able to enjoy their home screen more than ever using the new All Apps screen. It allows users to launch, add and move apps and widgets.

Webtop. This is never new to Motorola devices but with Android 4.0, this application has become even better. This time around, optimization with big screen is a lot easier from your phone plus there is improved email navigation. There is also a complete texting interface and above all, using Webtop would allow users to browse desktop version of websites.

Browser. The native browser now offers tabbed browsing while making load times shorter than before. The desktop mode option would also allow the browser to surf through desktop version websites.

Voice Input. If iPhone has Siri and Samsung has S-Voice, Motorola has Voice Input only that it couldn’t launch apps through voice commands. However, it is very useful in composing emails or texts as it is more accurate when it comes to pauses, punctuations and spelling.

Face Unlock. Rather than using a pattern or a PIN, ICS-operated Droid Razr and Droid Razr Maxx are capable of unlocking the phone through face recognition technology. It may not be new to both iOS and Android users but it is a good addition to the features these devices offer.

The update has already been pushed so if you are an owner of either one of these devices, you should be receiving notification about it. If not, it is better you initiate detection and update your device over the air. For more detailed information about the features of these devices, you may refer to the links below. The link to tutorial is also included.

Yes The Motorola Droid Razr Can Use The Razr Maxx Battery, But Why?

If you’re just into good home grown hacks this may be for you, however the acquisition of parts would cost the same $100 difference in the Droid Razr and the Razr Maxx. If there are after market batteries available out there somewhere this may be the way to go, but you may void your warranty and it your Droid Razr will no longer be sealed.

The good bunch of developers over at XDA have found out that the Droid Razr Maxx’s extra large, and extra capacity battery will fit into the Droid Razr and it will function beautifully. Because the Droid Razr Maxx is thicker, to accommodate the larger sized battery, your battery door won’t be flush.

The developers that discovered this home brewed hack replaced the battery and battery door on the Droid Razr. Once they removed the battery cover for the Droid Razr, they put the Droid Razr Maxx’s battery into the Droid Razr. They were able to use the battery door from the Razr Maxx to get the battery to fit over top of the bigger battery once it was in the Droid Razr.

So Is Motorola’s Maxx Battery Actually Better?

Based on the headline I’m sure there will be many people out there that actually say yes. Of course with the Droid Razr Maxx giving users 20 or so hours of battery life vs the original Motorola Droid Razr, which gives about 8 hours, the Droid Razr Maxx Battery seems much better.

But is it?

The battery itself is bigger, that’s why Motorola had to make the Droid Razr Maxx thicker. Not only is it bigger it’s nearly double the size of the first battery.  The original Droid Razr battery is 1780mah while the Droid Razr Maxx battery is 3300mah.

Motorola Droid Razr Developer Edition Coming

Motorola released the original Motorola Droid in November of 2009. It is one of the best selling Android phones to date.  Motorola has had a developer arm called MotoDev since roughly the same time.

In 2011 Motorola became even more developer friendly by announcing they would start unlocking some bootloaders. While they aren’t going to unlock the original Droid Razr or the Droid Razr Maxx they have announced that they are releasing a developer’s edition of the Droid Razr with an unlocked bootloader.

The developer’s edition will release in Europe first, however we hear that it will hit U.S. soil as well.

An important factor to consider with the developer’s edition of the Droid Razr is that in a press briefing last week Motorola’s Sr. VP Alain Mutricy said that they would be focusing on high end Android devices and expanding the Droid Razr line, presumably beyond the already announced at the time, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx.

Motorola announced, prior to the release of the Droid Razr, that the bootloader would be unlockable and that decision would be on the carrier, of course Verizon Wireless declined.

Verizon Wireless Motorola Droid Razr Maxx Available Today For $299

The Verizon Wireless Motorola Droid Razr Maxx is available starting today for just $299 on a new two year agreement. The Droid Razr Maxx adds a 3300mah battery to the original Droid Razr device. When the original Droid Razr came out a couple of months ago we found out that the battery was not user serviceable which meant that it would not support extended life batteries or any other after market battery.

With the Droid Razr Maxx’s 3300mah battery the problem is solved and at the same price point the original Droid Razr debuted at. The Droid Razr Maxx supports up to 21 continuous hours of talk time and somehow Motorola was able to squeeze that 3300mah battery in a case that’s still just 8.99mm thick.

Motorola To Focus On The High End And 4G/LTE In America

At this point in the game it’s no secret that Motorola had a problem with Verizon’s 4G/LTE at first. In fact at a Merill Lynch/Bank of America event last year, Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha revealed that Motorola was indeed having a problem with Verizon’s 4G/LTE packet stack and that’s why the Bionic had been delayed for so long.

But… Once that problem was fixed Motorola has been on fire with 4G/LTE devices for Verizon Wireless. Since September Motorola has introduced the Droid Bionic, Droid Razr, Droid Razr Maxx, Xyboard 10 and Xyboard 8. Motorola also announced the forthcoming Droid 4.  That’s pretty impressive for a company that six months ago was struggling with their first 4G/LTE device.

Motorola Droid Razr Owners Invited To Soak Test, Probably Not Ice Cream Sandwich

Motorola Droid Razr owners are being invited to a soak test by Motorola. A soak test is when an OEM sends out basically a beta version of an update before rolling it out to the masses. Motorola has a pretty aggressive soak test program and typically updates aren’t far behind the invitations to a soak test.

According to this post on Droid-Life Motorola Droid Razr owners in Motorola’s Feedback Network were invited to test out something new for their Droid Razr’s. No further details were given.

Naturally it was everyone’s first assumption that the soak test was Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, however according to this post at Phandroid.com, it’s more than likely an update to Android 2.3.6 which is still a version of Android. This update was leaked two weeks ago during CES so the news kind of fell to the wayside.

Hands On With The Motorola Droid 4

Although it was leaked weeks ago, Motorola and Verizon Wireless announced the new Droid 4 for Verizon Wireless’ 4G/LTE network while at CES.

The Droid 4 will feature a 1.2 ghz dual core processor, 1gb of RAM, and a five row edge lit keyboard with a “PC like” layout. The display is a 4.0 inch qHD display with scratch and scrape resistant glass, similar to the display found on the Motorola Droid  Razr.
