The 9mm thin Motorola Razr Maxx smartphone is close to 2mm thicker than its Droid Razr sibling but manages to squeeze a huge 3300mAh battery into its chassis, giving owners the ability to play games and surf the web all day, or talk for up to 21 hours straight without having to find a charger.
Samsung’s oversized Galaxy Note smartphone and its Galaxy Nexus ‘Google phone’ were awarded second and third places in the 2012 E-Tech Awards Smartphone & Handset category.
In 2011 Motorola also picked up the E-Tech Award for the best Phone/Smartphone with its Atrix 4G handset, beating LG’s Thrill 4G and HTC’s ThunderBolt which were awarded second and third places respectively.
Judging for this year’s award was conducted by a panel of media and industry analysts. Awards were given to products and services that embodied innovation, functionality, technological importance, implementation and overall “wow” factor.
