Very Good Phone for a longtime BlackBerry user
3 September 2013
Excerpt: This was my first non-BlackBerry smartphone, and I have to say it took some getting used to, however I now am fairly pleased with this phone. I love the screen, and battery life is phenomenal. I no longer have to bring a charger (or spare battery as I did with BlackBerrys) along with me. The phone has excellent hardware, but the software is now having some hiccups. So much so that my email deleted itself and Verizon replaced my phone for free.
"So far, quite nice. NO 4G tests yet...only the Wi-Fi."

Pros: Clear sound. Battery life. Screen quality and size. My Google stuff right away. Bigger, thinner and less weight than my old Droid 3.
Cons: Camera should be better. Learning curve...not unique in that. It has been easier than my first smartphone. We will see about the integrated battery. Could work out great for two years. Must send phone in to replace if the battery messes up.
Pros: - LOOOOONG battery life! - Uncluttered Android 4.1 interface (almost stock). - Very nice screen. - Designed solid like a tank. - Motorola Actions are great customization engine. - Fast processor and lots of memory.
Cons: - Camera quality is poor (typical of Motorola phones). - SIM and micro-SD cards difficult to access. - Quality of screen not the greatest.
"Love everything about the Droid Maxx, except the camera"

Pros: -AMAZINGLY long battery life. I go almost 3 days on a single charge with normal use, or 24 hours with high use. -Great weight and screen size -Tons of storage capacity and option to add more storage via micro usb -mini and micro usb charging ports
Cons: -Camera quality is less than desired. Smart focus by default creates overly dark photos. Purple haze seen in center of image in some light conditions. Automatic white balance very poor.
Excerpt: This is a good phone with good call quality. It's large and thick and clunky, too big for me to use with one hand. The display is brilliant and the colors are pretty. It has trouble finding proximate wi-fi, which is a disappointment. When it finds wi-fi, it does not accept it with good strength unless it's very close to the router source. I've had experiences with the picture gallery freezing.
Pros: Packs a lot into a very solid, quality package. Screen is enormous and the bezel is smaller than the previous Raxr Maxx. Totally flat back; overall high-end design. Powers up very quickly; 'Smart Actions' Motorola software could be useful.
Cons: Froze once already - had to hit side buttons to restart. Not sure why the Maxx HD is $100 more than the non-Maxx HD. I don't need the 32GB memory, just the extra battery life. Camera definitely could use some help - maybe software will help?
