The RAZR Maxx manages to pack a 3300 mAh battery while staying under 9 mm thick. Will we see this phone, or one very much like it, released in Sprint's stable of LTE phones? It has been 6 months since the Photon was released, could Moto be bringing something big to the LTE table?

It would be great to see Moto provide a Sprint model. In the past, I wouldn't think that Motorola would cross their biggest customer Verizon by giving that device out. But with Google getting in charge of things at Motorola Mobility, I think the chances are getting better.

I suppose a lot of it depends on how the RAZR idea was thought up. Motorola might have given Verizon a period of exclusivity with the device and planned on rolling it out to other carriers, or it could have been totally exclusive with no other release. Whatever the case, I hope the monster battery this beast is packing catches on. If they can put a 3300 mAh battery in a RAZR, they can put it in about anything.

That would be neat if Sprint got this. When the Photon came out, both Motorola and Sprint stated they were renewing their relationship. I was beginning to wonder since Moto has released 7-8 phones since then (half going to Verizon) with none coming to Sprint.. This would be a good way to keep the momentum and see if Moto phones can get away from the stranglehold Verizon has on them.

Yeah, I'm hoping the Moto drought at Sprint since the Photon is related to the switch to LTE. I would be willing to give a Motorola product a try if it is a truly flagship device. Especially if it's packing a 3300mAh battery! ;)

@Pyroscott: True.. good point.

 

@S4GRU: In regards to post 2, I definitely see your point, however, keep in mind, Moto did give sprint the XPRT.. which is the same thing as the Droid Pro. So, I like your thinking that maybe Moto is holding back until Sprints 4G LTE is launched.

 

So.. I'll keep my hopes up for now.. Sprint and Moto did say last summer when they announced the Photon that there would be more to come from Moto on Sprints network. I would like to see some more Moto Devices.. I hear the radios in them are great.. picking up signals where other phones fail. If not, I'll be looking for the next flagship HTC device (EVO). The (original) EVO 4G was (is) one of the best devices I've ever used or seen. (I'm sporting a Galaxy S II, EVO 4G, and Nexus S 4G now.)

If Motorola brings an LTE device to Sprint as good as the Droid MAXX, then Sprint could definitely be competitive in the high end phone market by the end of this year. We need to see more non-HTC & non-Samsung high end devices on Sprint.

You guys are too nice to me. I did completely forget about the XPRT. I don't think you would be so nice in pointing out my mistakes if I was just another forum poster. I sometimes have a tendency to only think of blockbuster/flagship devices, since that's all I want for myself.

:P

 

Thanks for not making me feel stupid!

Agreed, I don't know why they even bother building the lower end phones. I don't think I have even bought a phone that wasn't a flagship device.

    • Confirmed on my way to work this morning and while out on lunch that the only Sprint sites I connected to were keep sites. All others seem to now be offline at least around Louisville and Shepherdsville KY. 
    • It is pretty easy to use, once you get the hang of it. For example, to select a specific LTE Band(s) Click on [7] --Clear selected bands Click on [5] LTE Band Preferences Click on the specific band(s) you want to enable.  Click on [F] Go Main Click on [9] --Apply band configuration The same holds for NR5G, just you would click on [5] NR5G Band preferences instead of [5] LTE Band Preferences To re-enable all bands: Click on [8] --Select all bands Click on [9] --Apply band configuration  
    • Got the Android 12 based upgrade today with May 2022 security.  They now have favorites in contacts. Have not yet figured out how to get rid of the google/T-Mobile screen. Wall paper changes.
    • 25/26 are still on here, though the site historically nearest me has been decom'd. I did have to cycle to B26 and then B25 to get my phone to lock on, as going directly to B25 landed me on AT&T MFBI. Will be interesting to see how long 25/26 stay on; it's hard to connect to Sprint B41 here as there's plenty of T-Mobile B41 on n41 sites.
    • Looks like the remaining Sprint network might be dead here now. Forcing my phone to B25 or B26 gives me no network, sad day for sure.
