Moto Maxx trademark could point to a big battery Moto X
posted by Michael H. / Jul 30, 2014, 3:08 PM
The name Maxx has a long history for Motorola, but has only been used on Verizon exclusive devices like the Razr Maxx, DROID Razr Maxx, and DROID Maxx. This trademark seems to indicate that Motorola is planning to take back the Maxx branding for devices that may not be exclusive to Verizon, because the Moto name has been the global brand for Motorola.
As for what to expect from the device that carries the name Moto Maxx, the only thing we can say for sure is that it will be a device with a bigger battery, because Maxx has always been in reference to longer battery life. We can't say whether it will be a wholly new device that will carry the name, or if it will simply be a variant of an existing Motorola device, like the Moto X, G, or E.

I like big batts, and I can not lie.

When I switched to Verizon from AT&T, I went with the Razr Maxx. Its huge battery was meant I could go all day and night and not worry about always having a charger. Then there was the night I got stabbed walking home, went into the hospital with 63% and kept going all night with texting and FB to let family and friends know how I was doing (it was at 9% when someone brought me a charger the next morning). You can "be prepared" by having a charger and if applicable a spare battery, but that goes out the window when the cops take everything in to evidence and leave you with your phone, wallet, and keys and nothing else (including clothes). On a side-note, memorizing a key few phone numbers is a good idea too - you can't always rely on having your cell phone on you (the cops held on to mine for a couple hours because it had blood on it - on another side-note, touchscreens don't work when covered in blood). I'm with T-Mobile now, and my phone has a puny battery (but I have a spare). I hate that there's no "maxx" option on any of their phones, or on most unlocked ones. The ones with the big batts also have big power hungry screens and processors. I'm becoming less and less a fan of Samsung, but there's definitely something to be said about still having a removable battery, especially if an extended battery back/case can be had.

Motorola: Working on what actually matters.

If that was the case then they'd be using flagship specs instead of modest specs with flagship prices.

What was modest about the X? Granted, the camera was middling, but the 720 screen was fine. I really have a hard time understanding what all the fuss is about such high resolution on a 4" screen. The X was all about functionality, and, with its lean OS and fewer pixels to push, proved that it was faster than flagships such as the Galaxy in test after test. I think Moto is truly trying to distinguish itself by making a phone that meets people's needs (similar to Apple), rather than putting some silly "feature" like automatic scrolling or other such nonsense in the phone. I, for one, can't wait to see the new X with a Maxx battery. Battery life is the Achilles heel of all phones. Bigger screens, higher resolution, etc. are constantly touted, yet no phone out there can actually go more than a day in real world use except for those with larger batteries. I don't care if my phone is 2mm thicker than the other guy's when I know it will go 1 1/2 to 2 days on a charge.
