The Motorola Droid Maxx is, in a sense, one of Verizon’s Droids. It has an impressively large battery capacity. The 3,500mAh battery makes it one of the major reasons why many people consider getting this smartphone.
Just like the RAZR Maxx smartphone before it, the Droid Maxx will have taken a lot of abuse from its owner before its battery goes into the red. Motorola promises users 48 hours of mixed usage for the battery to need recharging. In real life, the battery life comes pretty close to 48 hours.
Specs of the Motorola Droid Maxx
The Droid Maxx features a 720 x 1280 pixels display. While it may not have full HD resolution like other smartphones in its league, it does have a large screen that produces vivid colors and has high contrast and deep blacks.
This phone runs the Android Jellybean version 4.2.2 and comes with Motorola’s wild Droid theme wallpapers and ringtones. It is 0.34 inch thick.
The Droid Maxx has a very slim and sleek design that comfortably sits on the hand. This Smartphone’s design seems to have the same design characteristics as its predecessor. It also has a Kevlar fiber unibody construction with a whole pattern design at the back.
The left side of the Droid Maxx is clean, and the right side has a volume and power rocker. The buttons give good enough feedback when pressed. The bottom part has the micro USB charging port, which can also be used for some video app functionality. At the top of the smartphone is a 3.5 millimeter headset jack.
The Motorola Droid Maxx has a 5 inch AMOLED display. This gives it vibrant, great viewing angles. Despite it being a 720p, it still looks very sharp and has a nice glow to it. It also packs an Android 4.2.2 Jellybean OS that can be upgraded to a more recent 4.4.2 KitKat version.
This smartphone also has updated visuals with widgets you can interact with. When you look at the notification panel, you will find various features such as those for connectivity, light adjustment, WiFi, Bluetooth, wireless display, battery percentage and your network and sound mode.
Internal Memory and CPU
The Droid Maxx packs a Motorola X8 mobile computing platform that is built around a dual-core 1.7GHZ Snapdragon CPU. This, however, does not mean that the Droid Maxx is underpowered. The system boasts discrete quad core Adrenal graphics. It also has a processor for interpreting natural language and another one for contextual computing. This is the same technology that Motorola has integrated into its flagship the Moto X. Thanks to the fact that Motorola is owned by Google, the Droid Maxx enjoys tight integration with the Google Now advanced search application.
The Maxx also comes with 32GB internal memory. Unfortunately, the phone lacks an SD Card slot for additional storage. Like all the new Droids, the Droid Maxx links to Verizon’s 4G LTE network for fast data.
At the back of the phone is a 10 megapixel camera with LED flash as well as speaker. It also has HD video recording and a 2 megapixel front camera. Motorola has also simplified the camera app for greater speed. This simplification allows you to spend more time taking photos and less time messing around with the camera settings. You can also activate the camera by picking up the phone and twisting it in your wrist.
The Motorola Droid Maxx is priced at about $299.
If you’re looking for a mean machine that can last you a whole two days with normal use, then the Motorala Droid Maxx is a great buy.
