Here is the Special Edition Red DROID RAZR MAXX HD for Verizon Employees

At the end of last week, we reported word that Verizon would be carrying a set of special edition employee-only versions of their best devices, leading into the holidays. Lucky VZW employees that chose to pick-up one could choose between a red version of the RAZR MAXX HD, Windows Phone 8X, or DROID DNA. As you can see from the pictures we received, this employee went all-in on a RAZR MAXX HD. 

Each device is individually numbered and printed with the words “LIMITED EDITION.” We predicted that the device would have red lines in place of the grey ones on the retail RAZR HD, something shown here. Moto and Big Red even managed to color the power button red, as well.

Not a bad looking phone, that’s for sure. It’s too bad that only employees are allowed to purchase these. I’d probably pay a pretty penny to get a hold of an all-red DNA.


Cheers ___!

    I pre ordered the employee edition Droid DNA (it has a red back and is limited edition can’t get it anywhere else) and will get it in the coming weeks. The best part is it comes with the charging pad for free and is only $99. I not only got this, but I also got me the HTC 8x as I was on the fence with picking this up as I was depressed the Nokia Lumia 920 wasnt coming to Verizon (at least right now). It was also only $99. I can’t wait they should be great. My wife is a little frusterated as I also have the iPhone 5 coming today, but I cant pass up on this great deal from Verizon for us employees.

      Just rub it in why don’t ya!?

  • That looks utterly hideous…

  • steve

    Anyone willing to pick one of those up and trade with me for my standard Razr Maxx HD in black/gray?

  • StockGS3er

    What is the tape covering up at the top?

  • GreenMeansGo

    Arrrrghhh! My eyes! My eyes!!!

  • tlennon

    U-G-L-Y you ain’t got no alibi, you ugly

  • RaptorOO7

    The colors are not my taste but having a limited edition that the average user can’t is kind of cool. What would make it better is IF the Verizon took all of the bloatware off and unlocked the bootloader for their employees. That would be awesome.

  • emma

    ilike it

  • Price and Specs

    Isn’t this site all about being different than the next guy? These are the top phones right now and they are different. Say what you want about the employee phones but they are all 100 bucks less than what anyone else can buy them for. Razr MAXX HD for 199? DNA for 99? Even the 8X for 99? Yeah, I’ll take em.

  • James

    I can see kids who like Aliewnware and put LEDs under their car would like this.

  • skinja

    That phone looks terrible. Maybe the camera is not capturing the actual colors. But that looka terrible.

  • Were Verizon employees complaining that the original model didn’t give them enough seizures?

  • Spider210

    glad that i don’t want that phone as an employee i am disgusted with this color

  • Aaron Fredricks

    its definitely not as ugly as people are making it out to be but ehhhhhhh is the only way i care to describe it. no thanks.

  • dangolds

    What’s the name of that model – the Droid Razr Got Beat By The Ugly Stick To The MAXX?

    If that phone was a woman, she would be more hideous than the ugliest chic I ever hooked up with, which is definitely not a good thing given my history.

  • that looks awful thank god i dont work for verizon.

  • Freddy’s Razr

    • angermeans

    • angermeans

  • Mario II Valenzuela

    Hmm… I wonder if those will have a locked bootloader..

  • Nicholassss

  • PhillipCun


  • Alan

    That’s up there in the ugliest phones ever list.

  • I’m looking to upgrade this Xmas and even though the Razr Maxx HD is under powered compared to the DNA I just love the build, light skinning and on screen navigation. I really hope they get a newer version out by the holidays but I don’t see that happening. Anyone else Maxx HD fans?

    • YankInDaSouth

      I’m with ya! Went from GNex to RAZR MAXX to RAZR MAXX HD and I couldn’t be happier! Solid build with superb radios, its a win-win IMO

      • michael arazan

        You could always apply for temporary holiday work at Verizon and maybe get the phone that way.

        • CRUBOS

          I’m crazy happy with the Rzr MAXX HD.

    • LiterofCola

      Definitely a fan, but biding my time to see what the GS4 might bring. Not up for a discount till next year anyways

    • angermeans

      I had a chance to spend some time with the Razr MAXX HD. I have to say the hardware is surprisingly nice and solid. I hated the past MAXX and Razr. Im still not a fan of Motorola, but it is a nicely built piece of hardware (even if it is very ugly in my opinion). The software however is far from “light.” The only thing that is “lightly skinned” is they kept the original launcher, but dont let that fool you it is still very much the bloated, laggy, and buggy Blur we have all come to despise over the years. There is nothing light about it. They still have the very ugly icons, still have the horrible looking menus and overall look, and it still feels much slower than any of the other Android devices out there. For example I was using my GS3 side by side with it and it was night and day difference in the speed and fluidity. I don’t know why Google doesn’t scrap Blur and go with vanilla Android as they would win back some customers. The Razr MAXX HD just feels like a product that should have come out last year. This should have been the original Razr as it really is pretty far behind the competition. Not only this, but the HD display was a pretty poor display even the poor Super AMOLED HD displays with pentile on my GS3 and Galaxy Nexus looked better than this display. Motorola used to have the best displays on any smartphone back in the original Droid days, but they continually show they are more than willing to cut corners on display technology and it really takes away form the experience.

  • Poor verizon Employees.

  • kixofmyg0t

    I want the RAZR backplate for my HD.

    • I’m sure there will be blue versions and who knows what else on the way. How many colors did the original RAZR have?

      • kixofmyg0t

        Lol good point. I Havnt heard anything of more RAZR HD colors yet, either way I liked the OG RAZR Verizon edition, and I like this backplate.
