Got this phone to replace my S4. I have no regrets. Didn't use half the gimmicks on the S4. This phone has features you actually use in day to day living. I use the touchless controls to schedule appointments all the time with 90% perfection. When driving and someone texts me it reads it aloud and I can also reply back W/O even touching the phone which should be standard in all phones for safety reasons. The only problem with this phone is that it when connected to Bluetooth in the car it rings when someone calls and plays my music library over the speakers but it doesn't answer my texts when it is hooked up to bluetooth and the GPS doesn't give me turn by turn directions!! I called Motorola and told them this and they said it is probably you Bluetooth and I told them it was a 2014 car and maybe they should fix this problem. The build quality is solid compared to my old cheap/plastic feeling S4. The screen size is good but I would even take a 4.7" to make it carry better. This carries OK but sometimes I wish they would stop building bigger phones! OK, now here is the only downside to this phone. I wish the camera was on par with the S4 or Nokia 928 ( own this too) . It is OK for basic photos but considering I love taking pictures it could be better. Don't say to by a dedicated camera either I have 2 and the phone is on me 24/7 so I would like a better camera..Build quality 10/10Reception 7/10Call quality 10/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 8/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 9/10Battery 10/10

My DroidMAXX Review
kanagadeepan has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
The only phone which is better than this one is Developer-Edition of this phone... Buy it, you will never regret it (if root is NOT a must for you).
Great display with nice non-pentile 720p resolution, Nice big-enough screen, best in class battery, good build quality, and all goodness of Moto X (except the on-screen keys)...Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
- Overall best phone in perfect size...
- Locked BL, no storage expansion and NO ROOT till now

How does the DROID MAXX work in countries outside the America(Verizon) like Nigeria
ogabinary has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I have the choice of selecting the iPhone 5s, the HTC one or the DROID MAXX,
But what i've been hearing is that the DROID MAXX is a CDMA-only phone and since it's tied only to the verizon network in the USA, i was wondering how you guys were able to unlock it and use it in India.
I live in Nigeria and require a SuperSmartphone that can last me a full day at least without having to run around looking for a power supply outlet.
If this phone can last me a good fullday without charging and doing lots of emails , my Lumia 920 goes to the butcher. its battery is pathetic and it oveheats.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 8/10Display 9/10Battery 10/10
- Heard that the battery can last a full 2 days
- The google voice feature

As close to perfection as any smartphone.

The MAXX is in a very rarified class of smartphone some are calling superphones. It has a few peers. Compare them all carefully. Top quality in every way. At this quality it will come to personal preference.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
- This is one of the most solid phones I've ever held.
- Qi wireless charging.
- Really wish there was a user accessible battery. Only time will tell.

Could be improved
rrlrobert has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I paid $300 for it hoping for the best on the market. The only thing it is best at is battery. I also own the S4 and HTC One. The sound is louder than the S4 and One but the sound is better on the One. The one is also designed better and more organized for the user. The S4 has more software features. The MAXX has significantly less accessories than the others...Less case option, less screen protectors, etc... but is a good phone overall, but not worth the price.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 10/10UI speed 7/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
- Battery Life

- Moto active display
- Rear facing speaker
- Not a lot of accessories yet

I had to decide between this and the LG G2 and went with this since it just works better. I like some of the toys on the others like the S4, but I need a phone with features I use. With the S4 and G2 the only time I used their toy features is when I was showing them to people, I never actually used them in real day to day use. The Droid Maxx I find I don't have too much to show off to people, but I use the features of this phone all the time. Shake to wake up camera is used a lot since I don't always know when I want to snap a picture, awesome. Touchless controls, active notifications, yes please. I don't think I will be able to have a phone in the future without these useful features. Battery, come on, the best in a phone. Best phone with the best performance, when compared to LG G2 and S4.
Also love the exclusivity of this phone. Since most kids choose their phone based on paper stats and not how the phone actually performs is a plus to us who do hands on research. I enjoy having a phone that most of my friends don't, as well as a phone that infuriates my 2 LG G2 owning friends when it works everytime, and for longer. My LG G2 now is setup as a wifi security cam.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
- Super fast
- Long Battery
- Amazing gaming
- Superior to my LG G2
- Touchless control
- Few gimmicks
- Exceptionally durable
- Active notifications
- Speaker is definitely on par with the HTC One (front facing would be better though)
- Bootup sound effects
- Rear facing speaker

This phone is great, battery life is better than stated. UI is awesome, kills the lagging S4. Build quality is bar none. If you use your phone for email this is your phone, swipe delete is best tool ever!Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

Best phone for me!
Delasangre4231 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
This phone is seriously powerful, I can't get it to lag or slow down. Battery is 60-50% after a day of hard YouTube and web browsing and even some turn by turn. The soft touch kevlar back is way nicer then the glossy one on the ultra and I'm not worried with gorilla glass.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

the battery really does last about 2 days with regular usage. the kevlar also feels very comfortable. the ability of the phone to detect when i am in my car is rather uncanny...but impressive. the touchless control is also very reliable. also no lag what-so-ever.
This gets rid of the boot up sounds... https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.antweb.silentboot&hl=en&referrer=utm_source%3Dgoogle%26utm_medium%3Dorganic%26utm_term%3Dplay+store+silent+bootBuild quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
