Motorola Droid MAXX Review
10 December 2013
Summary: The Droid MAXX can certainly keep you from having a dead battery for a very long time, although we didn’t find it anywhere close to the 48 hours Motorola has been touting in their recent ads for the device. The phone is a nice step up from the previously released Droid RAZR MAXX, although it isn’t without its faults.
Conclusion: The Droid MAXX is one of those devices that I had such high hopes for when I got it in, that I didn’t think there was any way it could live up to my expectations. Surprisingly, it actually did live up to what I expected. Battery life was great in both benchmarks as well as in real life use. Just as impressive was the performance in the 3DMark benchmark where the MAXX pulled away from the other devices.
DROID Maxx / Mini Dual Review: Motorola Is Officially Back On Track
2 October 2013
Summary: The DROID Mini and Maxx are both excellent phones, but if price is no object, I think even those wary of a "big" phone should go the Maxx route. More storage, much better build quality, and two days of battery life? How could you pass that up? The Maxx is an absolutely amazing phone in some ways, and I'd personally be very happy to call it my own.
Summary: All in all, the Motorola Droid Maxx HD offers a great amount of power, without much sacrifice. And while we’re not exactly in love with Motorola’s U.I. overlay for Android, the inclusion of smart actions for optimizing battery life is welcome. Also its 4.7″ HD AMOLED screen display with ColorBoost is excellent with vivid colors that won’t disappoint. And like its brethren, the MAXX offers a premium build quality that will last.
Pros: Truly amazing battery life for a device in its class, all around great performer, very good display, premium build quality and HDMI out
Cons: Design feels a bit boxy and seems a bit masculine and battery is not removable
Excerpt: When you think of longevity, smartphones never come to mind, and for good reason. The damn things never last. A day, a day and a half at most. That’s all they have. Which is ridiculous, because the bigger ones have much larger batteries, and they almost always have worse battery life than their smaller, less expensive, less powerful counterparts.
Pros: Battery life galore. Excellent build quality. Voice features are good and growing, with lots of room for improvement. Price, considering specs and battery life, is excellent for a new phone.
Cons: Longevity over an 18-month period is questionable. Even if it's owned by Google, not the latest build of Android. Verizon only.
Excerpt: After all, your awesome screen, super-fast processor, and mega-megapixel camera are rendered worthless once your phone runs out of juice. Motorola created the Droid RAZR MAXX followed by the Droid RAZR MAXX HD. Both phones had terrific battery life, but they just weren’t very remarkable phones. The 2013 model is different.
Conclusion: If you're deciding between the DROID family members Mini, Maxx, and Ultra, you'll be dropping a difference of $100 here or there for storage space and screen size. The big differences between the Maxx and the Ultra lie in their internal storage space - 16GB for the Ultra and 32GB for the Maxx, their battery size (and therefor device thickness), wireless charging, and body makeup.
