The first cellphone that I ever owned was my all time fav MotoRAZRv3i, I switched onto couple of others too but I still have my old aka first device with me. (sentimental values you see 😀 )
The sleek look was the factor, which propelled me to go for this one but the poor battery life was really a big turn off. Recently while going through the CES products I couldn’t stop meself tracking the new gizmo, they call it the Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx. This time it’s slightly thicker around 8.99 mm with a battery of 3,300 mAh, which means much more power than the OG RAZR’s 1,780 mAh battery.
Motorola believes that this gadget – RAZR Maxx – can hold for a full day on a single charge. But as per Domanico’s review the device lasts from 6-8 hours under default settings.
Does this mean that it cannot cross the threshold of 24 hrs as asserted by the company? No! At least theoretically, it is possible.
If 1,780 mAh battery in OG RAZR lasts for 16 hrs then 3,300 mAh in RAZR Maxx – which is about 85% bigger – can last for 26 hrs. Plus the time might gets extended if the phone rests on standby mode.
Not too sure whether theoretical and practical would converge anywhere, I mean, we must not forget the basic principle of smart phones, i.e. loading the phone with apps is inversely proportional to battery life.
