Features Key features of the Moto X  vs DROID MAXX

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.

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.

Details are effective enough to make everyday things easy on the eyes, seeing that it employs the favorable RGB arrangement with its pixels – while its saturated color reproduction and wide viewing angles are expected qualities from what we’re normally exposed to with AMOLED tech.
