Samsung have made the SGSIII mains only, no battery at all.


Well, they couldn't get the required 1.21 gigawatts from a battery.

My only question is, how long is the stock extension cable? I want to be able to use my SGSIII all around my house so a 50m cable would probably do the trick

Mobicity do NOT have the droid razr maxx yet. Due in next four weeks.
In the states it is CDMA.

Interestingly I am looking for a simple 2G phone with big battery performance.
My searches take me to three phones :

Vodafone 155 Alcatel 155. THIRTY days standby with 1000 mAh battery
Nokia X1 00. 1320 mAh battery with 1466 hours standby
LG GX 200 1500mAh battery. 1700 hours standby. Dual Sim.

Any thoughts ?

The US Droid RAZRs (And the Droid 3. Also the Bionic) are actually CDMA/GSM, they've just locked down the GSM side. It'll be officially unlocked with the Ice Cream Sandwich update, there are leaked ICS updates that do so already.



Supposed I should pop in. I, mm, suffered through the international Motorola RAZR/XT910 from November to April. In that time, they promised both an unlockable bootloader and a timely Ice Cream Sandwich update, neither of which have been delivered yet. In the meantime, they've also released the MAXX to kick the sand in the face of those that purchased the first model, as well as the 'developer edition' RAZR, which is exactly the same as the mass market XT910, but has an unlocked bootloader and no warranty. Motorola seem to like upsetting their customers.

The RAZR was easily the worst high-end smartphone I have ever used - atrocious battery life and abysmal screen. Adore the industrial design, though. Suffice to say that, although the MAXX does have great battery life with its 3300mAh pack, it is very much a brute force solution. Samsung have come a long way with their software and hardware refinements on the Galaxy S III, the Note also has very good battery life.

The MAXX will be acceptable once the ICS update is widely available. The Gingerbread build is terrible, and there are fundamental ethical issues with Motorola's bootloader policy. On the other hand, if it's good battery life you want (Especially so if you're not a heavy smartphone user), that's your best choice right now.


If you aren't concerned about warranty, you may be able to import a cheap Verizon Droid RAZR MAXX from the US and unlock its GSM radios.
