Performance Testing - Web Browsing
Since browsing the Web is a key feature of any smartphone, we also conducted some formal speed tests to see how well the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx compares to some of today's hottest smartphones.
The Droid Razr Maxx scored well in the Xtremelabs 4G test, but it didn't top the charts. Even with a lower score than some other Verizon Wireless 4G LTE phones we've tested, the Droid Razr Maxx still bested even the fastest speed achieved on other networks.
The Droid Razr Maxx didn't score very well in the Xtremelabs 3G download test, but it managed an excellent score in the upload portion of the test.
The Droid Razr Maxx beat a number of phones in the Speedtest.net 4G test and earned the fourth spot in the rankings. In the Speedtest.net 3G test, however, the Droid Razr Maxx didn't fare as well and came in near the bottom in comparison to other phones we've tested.
Although these tests are designed to put a quantitative score on connection speeds, it's important to keep in mind that network speeds can vary depending on many factors and the test results can also vary from one day to the next. Overall, we were satisfied with the real-world browsing speeds on the Droid Razr Maxx and felt the speeds were in line with other phones we've seen recently.
