Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD

Motorola's new Droid RAZR MAXX HD makes the list simply because it packs a massive 3,300 mAh battery inside of a relatively thin design that also offers a spacious 4.7-inch display. It also runs on Verizon's vast 4G LTE network and will soon be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Those looking for the best battery life an Android phone can offer will want to opt for this beauty as no other device has seemingly come close to topping Motorola's offering. There's always next month though.

    Isn’t saying the “best 5 Android Smartphones” sort of like saying the best cancer or the best plague? Honestly, I dont get the appeal of Android, other than the fact that they are usually basically giving them away. If I am ever in a situation that all mobile providers are only carrying Androids, I will dig my 10 year old flip phone out of a box somewhere and forsake smartphones. Every single person I know who has an Android loves it for about 3 months and then all they do is complain about how bad it is and how they cant stand it and want a new phone. I have tried playing with them in stores, and at friends houses and with my daughters tablet and Android is the least intuitive, least appealing, most illogical user interface. No, I am not an Apple fan – iPhones aren’t much better, but at least they look nice, something that only Samsung has done right for Android with the Galaxy 3.

      So.. You would recommend what? Blackberry?

      Android is an open source project. End of story, that’s the appeal.

      Actually, I have android phone and tablet for 3 years already, and i love it. Is by far the best platform in the market since they got realeased. Of course, If you are someone old school, and dont like to learn new things, Android could be hard for old people with no intention to learn.

      My mom, my father, my brother and most my friends use android, and we all agree in how grate it is. I am a technician and enthusiast and I learnt a lot from this phones on google and youtube, I love the fact that everyone can make changes on it, In Iphone, blackberry, you are limited to their ideas and solutions. With Android there are no limits…

      Just in case, I dont sell androids or anything I am happy android user giving my personal opion.

    The HTC DNA has a new Krait quadcore processor that’s massively more powerful than the scorpion processor thats’ in the One X. So no, they don’t have similar cpus.

    Understand about being open source but that is important to maybe 1% of the population. Most consumers don’t even know what open source is. (in fact most consumers are looking for the latest status symbol). No, I would not recommend blackberry, I would recommend Windows Phone (either 7.5 or 8) most people have not tried them because the carriers hid them in the back of the store, know nothing about them and try to force other products down the consumers throat. I have sung the praises of windows phones for 2 years and friends ignored me. Recently several of those people purchased windows phones and said the OS, the functionality, the look, everything blows away the competition. I have known that for 2 years.

      So, finnius, i’m dumb about gadgetry in general and it takes awhile for me to learn my smartphones. I had a windows about 1.5 yrs ago and had a hard time learning it. Now my second smartphone is a motorola droidx2 (which i have had 18 months.) It also took me quite awhile to learn. I just now feel like I know it like the back of my hand and can do anything with it (that its capable of). I really like it now that its already out of date lol. I’m already thinking ahead to my next phone, but am so confused with terms such as “os” and ice ream sandwich and jellybean. What do these things mean? I’m smart so i dont need lengthy explanations. Just the basics. I want a really good phone that operates fairly smoothly without a six month learning curve. Something thatto offer but is fairly intuitive and that i dont have to call tech ssupport every week to figure out something the phone isnt doing or something that i dont know how to do. The online manuals are are useless to me. They are confusing IMO. U say droids suck. Other people say iphones arent so good. What phone do u think has the most to offer, good quality, and learner/user friendly? I’m collecting opinions and yours seems it. collecting opinions and yours seems it would be worthwhile. I am a sucker for whats most popular such as an iphone, but i dont want to get something just cuz its popular. I want a really great phone. What would u suggest?

        I guess reading back thru your post u are a windows fan? Do u think theyre the best? And p.s. i want something with an excellent front and back facing camera with great resolution. My current camera on droidx2 sucks. Thx ahead of time 4 your opinion!

        the only way to avoid the larning curve, is buying a new phone with the same kind of OS. If you had a windows phone, another windows phone. But, I am still convinced that Android is not by far the most popular, but the more capable…
