Excerpt: The Motorola Droid Maxx is a high-end smartphone with a 5-inch display and a resolution of 720p. That isn't the highest resolution you’ll find on top-of-the-line smartphones, but you won't notice too much of a difference from other Motorola phones . This Motorola smartphone is relatively heavy at almost 6 ounces, but the weight makes it feel like a solid device.
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: Verizon customers have a tough decision to make when buying a top-tier Android phone, even when choosing among new Motorola devices. If you like Motorola's touchless voice controls, the $199 Moto X is a great choice because of its compact design. The $199 Droid Ultra is thin, but if you're going to get a larger, 5-inch display, the $299 Maxx is a more practical choice because of its much longer endurance. You just have to be willing to live with its extra bulk.
Summary: In our review of the Droid Ultra, we concluded that the device didn't need to exist in Verizon's lineup, not with the Moto X also on sale, anyway. We can't say the same of the Droid Maxx, though: its larger battery, superior build quality, wireless charging functionality and increased storage make it a worthier purchase. Really, the Maxx is exactly what the Ultra should have been in the first place, and it's proof that you can fit a huge battery in a thin chassis.
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.
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
