Motorola Takes You on a Comprehensive Software Tour of the RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD

With the DROID RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD landing in Verizon stores this morning, Motorola has taken to YouTube to release a series of “how to” videos to help folks with their new purchase. Most of this stuff we have covered at length on the site, but if you need a recap or want to see some of the specific features that these new RAZR family members have to offer, jump below and grab your popcorn.

Oh, and don’t forget that we already unboxed the RAZR HD to give you our first impressions.

    I picked one (Maxx HD) up yesterday. I also own the original Maxx. It is not a perfect phone, but the screen is significantly better as is the performance. While not perfect, what it does (at least for my usage pattern) better than any other is provide enough battery life to get me through a full day w/o worry. That value is why I bought it.

  • Jim McClain

    wonder who will be the first to put google wallet on it?

  • Ledsled00

    this phone is not even available in my market yet today is the release date. I called four stores and they still don’t have the phone yet. WTF.

  • ChrisI

    Are you kidding me? I need to carry around a stupid tool to get out my micro sd card?!?!? That’s almost as bad as having to remove the battery/back cover on most phones. Stupid design. All they had to do was make a tiny little door for the SD, and another for the SIM. God ****it Moto (and other mftr’s), why is that so hard to do?

    • Verizon

      God ***it customer, why do you need to remove/change the micro sd card often enough for this to ever be an issue?

  • RoadsterHD1

    This is a nice phone but I’m waiting for the Motorola Quad-core phones next year….

  • T4rd

    Where’s their tour of the locked bootloader..? =p

  • DanWazz

    Zombie hand!!!!

    • summit1986

      Fingernails give it away

  • Max

    Is there really a big noticeable difference between the Droid Razr and the Droid Razr HD besides the NFC chip, improved screen and quicker processor?

    • JoshGroff

      Better battery life due to a more power efficient processor (and the non MAXX version has a higher capacity battery than the original RAZR)

      • Max

        gotcha. So it’s basically the original with every current spec improved.

        • JoshGroff

          Pretty much, besides RAM and internal storage I think.

    • Paul

      What else do you expect?

  • schoat333

    So much hate?

    I think it looks good in white. Glad they make the bezel white, and not just the sides like the M

    • Actually, the M has a lot of white in it (Have one, and for the price paid, it’s terrific). It’s weird though, while I find the white S3 to be a really nice look, something about this doesn’t do it for me. Maybe with a black clamshell case on the back it would look cool (stormtrooper phone!), but I can’t say it’s doing a lot for me. In my opinion, it’s certainly not hideous though, and it might grow on me.

      • schoat333

        I just meant the glass around the screen is actually white, like the SGSII. The M still has black on the glass around screen.

  • Opinionated_In_Bangor

    When does it get Jelly Bean? If anything like the orginal Razr, it will be June/July of 2013… By then a number of new, better phones will have come out

    • summit1986

      With Verizon, you never know.

  • That white looks horrendous

  • Aaa

    When is your review coming out? 🙂

  • Brian

    I can’t keep up with all of these new phones. It’s so nice of Motorola to tell you to buy the latest and greatest of their phones. Then you find out two weeks later they have another latest and greatest. It’s ridiculous.

    • aaassss

      Its been a year since the razr. And they released all of these pretty much at once. So i dont see what your silly argument is all about

      • Exactly. Before the Razr M, the last phone Moto released was the Maxx, and that came out what, in February? And not only did they dramatically slow down product releases, but they announced the Razr M, and both HD variants, at the SAME press conference. All three are at different price points, and targeted at different people. Oh yeah, and we’re getting very close to the holiday season, so of course we’re going to get an onslaught of new devices. If you don’t like the phone, fine, but come up with a better argument.

    • Paul

      They announced all 3 at the same time.

  • That white version REALLY emphasizes the size of the bezel. Not flattering.

    • gross

      +1000, the epitome of fugly

      • Really a bezel is fully to you? Your life must be so fulfilling…

    • Joel

      I agree, I thought it was suppose to be edge to edge display. Doesn’t look like it to me

      • Paul

        They only said the M was.

      • I wish the HD was closer to edge to edge like the M. Or that the M had an HD display.

  • Certainly can’t call the device “edge to edge”. Not totally convinced the RAZRm is either, but it is much closer.

    However I do like the large battery…wish it was adopted everywhere. I don’t need my device to be .001″ thinner than the iphone, I need it to last all day.

    • snakeinthegrass

      I thought only the RazrM was getting the edge to edge description

    • jessiejames1209

      It’s not considered edge to edge!
