Motorola Droid Razr Maxx Price Drops to $199 on Verizon

Verizon is now offering the Droid Razr Maxx for just $199 with a new 2-year agreement.

The device was previously available as a special on for that same price, but now customers can now purchase it with this $100 discount directly from the carrier.

Customers who want to take advantage of the new low price will also have to shell out $30 for an upgrade charge.

"If you value life of the battery about the rest in a smartphone, don't mind Verizon as the carrier, and would like to get a pretty high-end device too- the Razr Maxx is it," said

Motorola seems to strongly focus on the battery life this time around with the Razr Maxx, and it easily outdoes the competition with its 3300mAH.

The new Samsung Galaxy S3 is close in some areas in terms of battery life.

The device's battery was recently tested by GSM Arena and the site found that it was good for 10 hours of talk time.

The 10 hours of talk time was achieved with the Galaxy S3 while the display for the handset was off.

Other results included 5 hours and 17 minutes of web browsing, and over 10 hours of continuous video playback.

According to GSM Arena's data, the Galaxy S3 fell just behind Motorola's Droid Razr Maxx on video playback and talk time. And in terms of web browsing, the smartphone ranks no. 14 behind many other competitors thanks to its AMOLED display.

The report also stated that with the Galaxy S3's stand-by endurance rating of 43 hours, users would need to charge the smartphone once every 43 hours if they want to do an hour of 3G talking, video playback and web browsing per day.
