Droid RAZR MAXX Brags About Power Defeating Apple iPhone

April 26, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We get better devices day in and day out, but the issue is when one technology stay static, while others go on improving. Yes, we are talking about batteries.

We have seen how Apple struggled to slap in three massive battery units into the third gen iPad to keep the power eater Retina Display, even by sacrificing the thickness of the device.

It is real pity that the so called R &D pool with the major players in the gadget world is not working out a better power solution for portable gadgets.

Now, it seems that Motorola has just understood the goose that will lay golden eggs. In a recent ad they have exhibited the extended power life of one of its devices.

In the ad, Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX is pitted against iPhone 4S and LG Spectrum for one of the most power eating and long-time tasks – GPS navigation on a road trip.

Obviously, the other two devices died before the trip ended. The 3300mAh battery on MAXX survived the 4 hours plus drive, while the LG Spectrum died at 2 hours 27 minutes and iPhone at 3 hours 45 minutes, as per the ad when MAXX was retaining 40 percent of its juice inside.

It is also notable that the competing devices were comparatively thicker and the iPhone was running on Verizon 3G networks, leaving away the power eating LTE.

Though there could be many tweaks involved in an edited ad, we have found the Droid RAZR MAXX as an amazing device when it comes to its battery life, though we may not tell the same about its other features.

If somebody like Motorola can do it, other major manufactures can also follow their path in getting better batteries, which is something the whole gadget world is desperately waiting for.
