Droid RAZR HD MAXX
The best smartphone Motorola currently has to offer is the RAZR HD Maxx. Unfortunately, it was announced online that the phone will most likely not be sold in Australia due to incompatibilities with the mobile phone frequencies which Australian carriers use. This comes as a real blow to Motorola fans in Australia who were hoping they would be able to purchase a solid rival to the other leading smartphones like the Samsung GALAXY S3 4G.
