Somebody call the Guinness Book of World Records: Motorola claims its new Razr Maxx handset offers “the longest talk time of any smartphone”.
According to Motorola, the Razr Maxx delivers up to 17.6 hours of talk time over 3G, although when you read the small print its battery performance – like all phones – depends on network configuration, signal strength, operating temperature, features selected, as well as voice, data and other application usage patterns.
Presumably the new improved battery life will come in handy when you need to jam your phone in a lift door so you can snog the person you just met there.
Still, 17.6 hours is not bad at all, especially when you consider we were already very happy with the juice we got out of the previous Motorola Razr.
“While there isn’t a removable battery, this shouldn’t worry too many people as the Motorola Razr easily manages to last a full day which is great given how thin the phone is. With moderate use and auto-updating switched on, we got 30 hours out of the handset,” our review read.
Has the handset managed to keep its svelte shape? Motorola says it’s still “seriously thin” at just 8.99mm, although that’s an increase over the super-slim 7.1 mm of the previous version.
It’s still a Razr at heart though, offering the same tough qualities the phone is known for thanks to the Kevlar material used in its construction and Corning Gorilla glass.
The Motorola Razr Maxx will be released in select markets in Europe and the Middle East from May 2012.
