In daily use, the DROID MAXX with its X8 processor and 2GB of RAM is plenty quick in its boot-up time, and also loading and running apps, multitasking, and playing games.

It produces nice saturated colors and is pleasing to the eye, but when compared next to the Samsung Galaxy S4, you can clearly see a difference, as text and images are sharper on the Galaxy S4’s 1080p display.

Reviews Word on the street for the Motorola DROID MAXX


8.5
Combining both the X8 processor and Verizon’s 4G LTE data network, the Chrome browser on the Droid MAXX is a breeze to use.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

Since these phones use Super AMOLED technology, the viewing angles and color reproduction are great, but we did notice that the display on the Galaxy S4 appeared slightly brighter when both display’s brightness were turned all the way up.

There are a few key differences between the Motorola DROID MAXX and the DROID Ultra – first the MAXX has a higher capacity 3500mAh battery to provide longer usage time, as well as 32GB of internal memory instead of only 16GB, and soft-touch coating on the back of the device.

Camera

The camera interface is easy to use, minimalistic in its nature with some basic settings and lacking any fancy color effects/modes..

As with most smartphone cameras, you get the best results when there is plenty of light, and this remains the case with the DROID MAXX.

Battery

During our testing, we were able to get up to 20 hours of continuous talk time, or about 3 days of mixed usage on a full-charge with the DROID MAXX, compared to 13 hours of talk time or 2 days of mixed usage on the DROID Ultra.

If you are looking for a smartphone with a king-size battery, this should get your attention, as the Motorola DROID MAXX comes with an impressive 3500mAh internal battery.

Carrier

Because of these extra features, the Motorola DROID MAXX has a premium price of $300 with a 2-year Verizon contract, making it $100 more than the DROID Ultra.

Conclusion Coming in at $300 with a 2-year Verizon contract, the Motorola DROID MAXX is the most expensive of the three DROID models.

While we appreciate that the DROID MAXX has twice the storage of the DROID Ultra, it would have been nice if the devices included a microSD memory card slot for user-expandable storage.
