Did you plop down $299 for a DROID RAZR last year only to watch the DROID RAZR MAXX release a few months later? The DROID RAZR MAXX is identical to the DROID RAZR except for the battery and thickness. I don’t think most people realize how “ahead of the curve” Motorola was by sneaking a 3300mAh battery in a device that’s only 8.99mm thick.
If you own a DROID RAZR with RAZR MAXX envy, there is a possible solution for those that like to tinker. XDA member Ward05757 was able to successfully replace the DROID RAZR battery with the RAZR MAXX battery. Of course things like this always come with a con don’t they? Upon installing the thicker battery in your DROID RAZR, you will now have a gap in the SIM card door and the battery cover which will make it weaker to water and dust. Water05757 says it isn’t as bad as it looks though
Obviously we have to warn you that by trying this, it could cause damage to your phone which could negate your warranty, but if you’re looking for a project for this weekend, you might want to check this out. Hit the break for one more pic and source link to get started.
