Droid RAZR MAXX: Longish Battery Life On LTE, No Need To Say More

This is it.  The it device if you're on Verizon Wireless.  The only Android device you'll need for a long time to come.  It's the Droid RAZR Maxx with its 3300 mAh battery that even beats the iPhone 4S.  And while it doesn't run on Ice Cream Sandwich, I'm sure the Android mod public will get anyone who buys it on Android 4.

So the DRM has a big battery.  So what?

Well, like the Droid RAZR, it looks pretty much the same.  Unfortunately for the DR buyers, I'm sorry.  You got a sleek thin Android device but the problem is that you only 1770 mAh battery.  Don't get me wrong.  The thinness on the DR is wicked.  It's sick.

But the moment you walk out your door with it 100% charged and by the time you get to work, you've likely seem a significant drop in the battery life if you'd done anything medium among of work on it via the LTE network.

Okay, I've already decided that the DRM is better than its main competitor, the iPhone 4S in the area of battery life.  Now, how does it compare to the alpha phone of the moment, the Galaxy Nexus by Google and Samsung?

The DRM got nearly 8.5 hours of continuous use while the closest competitor got 6.6 hours - not bad but still dismal.  And that isn't the Galaxy Nexus.  The only-ICS device managed less than 4 hours.  In fact, it go 3:40...sad, no?

And if you're a proud owner of the Droid RAZR, your phone managed 4.75 hours.

What's incredible about the DRM is that it managed to outdo the 3G competitors on AT&T and T-Mobile.

So, here on On Android, one of the things we continually stressed about mobile isn't just speed or apps but also battery life.  And it looks like the Droid RAZR Maxx with it's bigger battery life is just about what every mobile warrior needs.

It's not a true day long device that I think we need.  But for now, the Maxx is a step in the right direction.
