Motorola is keenly aware that for some power users, the standard 1600 mAh battery found in most smartphones just doesn't cut it. The DROID RAZR_MAXX comes to your rescue, with its 3300 mAh battery. An excited booth attendant told us you could watch eight HD movies on a single charge. That translates into 21 hours of talk time.

The larger battery adds about 2 mm to the standard RAZR, putting the MAXX at 9 mm thick (about a third of an inch), which is still a good bit thinner than most of the smartphones that we carry around today. Other than that, specs look pretty much the same as the standard RAZR's--except the price. The MAXX will run you $299.99 with a two year agreement from Verizon.

? - The picture does not look like my s2. Mine is branded, but much more square and has four buttons. Are branded and unbranded that different or is this an incorrect picture?
