    Hi there,

    I live in the Netherlands and ordered an Motorola Razr Maxx from an online shop.

    They send me the phone and everything seems okay. In the box there was a manual in French and the preferred language of my phone was also French. Not really a problem, but they sent me a French Phone :)

    Then I checked the model number and it is XT910. This is actually the name of the phone with the smaller battery right? Did they sent me the correct phone? :) I ordered a Razr Maxx because of the big 3300 maH battery.

    Also it came with Android 4.0.4 installed. Is that normal? I thought the phone originally came with version 2.3 and you could update it yourself. Does this mean my phone might have been used before?

    Thanks for the replies. Just checking if everything is good and if I'm too paranoia :)

    Great phone though!

    The XT-910 is the GSM version of the Droid RAZR (with the 1,780 mAh battery). The RAZR MAXX has a 3,300 mAh battery and is nearly the same thickness from top to bottom but with a very slightly thicker section at the top where the earpiece and cameras are located. This is in contrast to the RAZR which has a clearly pronounced change in thickness just before the top section, and is about 1/2 that thick over the greatest part of the phone's length. If you are looking for a GSM phone, that's the one you want, but it's clearly NOT the RAZR MAXX GSM version.

    As for why it has 4.0.4, it may be a refurb, but could also be shipped from the factory with the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade factory installed at this point.

    Thanks.
    I dont understand exactly what you mean by your first alinea. The XT-910 is actually the Droid RAZR with the 1.780 mah battery. Clear.
    I have bought the Razr Maxx and it looks like that on the outside, but still has 'Model: XT910' on the back / under 'phone details'. Just wondering if I indeed have a Razr Maxx in my hands :)

    Hello Stab.

    First, I used to live in Eindhoven..... a very long time ago.

    The model number on the back of my Razr Maxx is xt912, which is for the US CDMA/LTE.

    Looking at the two, the regular Razr has more of a "hump" at the top from the camera to 1.5cm down. The Maxx has a more gradual slope from the top at the camera all the way down to the bottom.

    Here is some information about the phone you have: Motorola RAZR XT910 - Full phone specifications

    Based on the information in the above link, your phone has the 1780mAh battery which is the same as the regular Driod Razr, not the Maxx.

    Hope that helps.

    Oh also, To change the language go to System Settings > Language and Input > Language. From there you should be able to change your default language.

    Thanks!

    The link you gave is refering to the RAZR XT910 which has the smaller 1780 MAH battery.

    My question was if there is something wrong or if the 2 phones share the same model number, because I clearly bought the Razr MAXX with the big 3300 MAH battery. My phone also has the gradual slope you are talking about and not the hump at the top.
    On the box of my phone it indeed reads 'Razr Maxx' and the battery seems to last pretty long since my first charge. This should be the Razr Maxx, but Im just concerned about the model number... Because XT910 is indeed the name of the phone with the 'small' battery...

    I hope someone could clarify this.

    If you look on the lower part of the back of the phone you can see the model number. It is possible then that right phone was in the wrong box.

    With these new MAXX series, because the software is the same, the model numbers for both phones are the same. So BOTH the GSM RAZR and RAZR MAXX will be XT910. Both phones for LTE is XT912. The only difference is the battery and overall thinkness of the phone.

    RAZR Maxx will have the Motorola plate on the front in black with Motorola in silver letters. The RAZR will have a silver plate with Motorola in black letters.

    They have the same model because the software is the same between the regular and Maxx version, the larger battery does not affect the phones performance in a software/hardware way like a CPU would.

    What the phone reports may be flawed by incorrect reading of the maximum capacity. The way the phone gets this information is from a full charge performed while the power is OFF. It may serve you well to do a battery meter training, considering the phone is new. Others here can school you on it...I have to run. Take it away friends!! :hail:

    Short form:

    Do a battery meter training:
    *with phone powered off, charge it to 100% (you can check the % of charge by pressing the volume button).
    *When it reaches 100%, turn phone on, unplug, use your phone without charging it until it gets to the low battery warning (10-15% charge).
    *Turn phone off and charge it while off until it reaches 100% again.
    *Turn phone on and use it and charge it as you normally would.

    It may not say DROID because his is GSM and DROID is registered to Verizon. I think.

    O yeah, you're right. But it should say something like Motorola RAZR or Motorola RAZR Maxx.
