So earlier this week I wrote a nice editorial about why most of us consumers prefer a little bit thicker device with a much bigger battery then a super thin device with a very little battery.

Essentially the same device but the Droid Razr is much thinner (well not really) but has about half the battery as the Droid Razr Maxx, which has been proven to last about 21 hours of moderate to heavy usage. So in tonight’s poll…

Even thought the Droid RAZR Maxx with that huge battery on its back, but let’s face the fact that the batteries in these thin phones are pretty bad, usually around 1500mAh to 1900mAh which tend to not last very long. So – why can’t manufacturers get it that we want more capacity in our batteries more than a…

This toggle has been tested to work on the Droid Razr Maxx and the Droid Bionic ( I haven’t tried it on any other devices), and of course it works on the Droid Razr since it was made for the original Droid Razr. It’s…
