Battery capacities for the DROID trio leak out: MAXX coming with a hearty 3,500 mAh unit
Hidden inside the FCC documentation about the trio of DROIDs that Verizon is about to unleash on us in a few hours is the information on their actual battery capacities.

The values are as follow: the DROID Mini XT1030 will sport a 2000 mAh unit, DROID Ultra XT1080 is backed by a 2130 mAh juicer, and the almighty DROID MAXX XT1080M will sport a 3500 mAh monstrosity, which is more akin to powering a phablet these days.

The original MAXX has a 3300 mAh battery, so there is a positive development in that department, but the other two are simply average in terms of capacity, to keep their profile trim and slender, it seems. Wireless charging is allegedly built into the battery pieces, all phones sport NFC radio, and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n.

You fail to realize that Samsung would be nothing without Google. It would still have been Apple and Nokia if Android didn't exist.

Y what is the need? We can import them even if they are NOT coming to India... My primary phone is RazrMAXX_HD and secondary one is RazrMAXX_OG... I am using both in GSM networks without any issues...

Switch to Verizon, or accept that you will not get MAXX battery life.

So wait, is this a Verizon version of the upcoming Moto X or a completely different line-up?

Completely different. The Moto X is a device made by the collaboration of Google and Motorola, these new Droid devices are strictly Motorola made.

Strange why would Motorola release one line-up followed by another like 3 weeks later. But hey, I'ma try out the Moto X for sure. Thx for the info!

What do you mean? These Droid devices make up Motorola's first and only line up of 2013. The Moto X is just one phone, and it's made to be a Google device, not a Motorola device like those mentioned in the article.

The Razr HD has 2500mAH battery so the Droid Ultra is a step down in battery size which is disappointing.

That makes no sense....

25. kanagadeepan (Posts: 664; Member since: 24 Jan 2012)


Yes... Reason is RazrHD cannibalized sales of RazrMAXX_HD since its battery is already better than other phones at that time.. (Actually BigRed killed RazrMAXX_HD with high price)

So now greedy BigRed don't want to give choice for battery loving people.. If you want great battery life, pay 100$ more --- This is BigRed's master plan now, I guess...

The Droid Maxx will be a surefire hit if it comes with a superb user experience.
MOTOROLA have a huge opportunity to climb to the top of the Smartphone foodchain...
