Free Motorola Droid Razr Maxx with two-year Verizon contract (Best Buy)
Motorla's highly rated Razr Maxx and its long-lasting 3,300mAh battery can be had for free at Best Buy when you sign a two-year contract with Verizon. While Moto now offers a version with a high-res screen (the Maxx HD), the original Razr Maxx is still a great phone -- especially for free.
- Overall score: 9.0 (4.5 stars)

The good: Despite a beefed-up battery, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx has a slim, attractive, and durable design with the same gorgeous display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and fast Verizon 4G/LTE data speeds as its predecessor. It retains powerful multimedia chops and tight security features.
The bad: For such an advanced smartphone, the vague promise of a future Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is disappointing. Also, while a stronger battery is great, it's still not user-removable. People with small hands will find it hard to wrap them around the phone's wide frame, and the 8-megapixel camera is unimpressive.
The bottom line: The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx proves that a powerful Android superphone can remain thin yet still promise marathon-worthy battery life.
