Motorola DROID Maxx 2 vs Samsung Galaxy A8 HTC One A9: specs comparison

8

Motorola made the Droid Maxx 2 official. With mostly mid-range specs, the phone is up against some heated competition in the mid-range segment. Equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 615 chipset, a 21MP camera, and also sizeable 2,630mAh battery. Sadly, we only get Lollipop out of the box.

In this day and age, these are mid-range specs, there's no denying that, so what are the phones that should the Maxx 2 get compared against? Well, we picked Samsung's Galaxy A8 and HTC's recent One A9 as two of the more recent and interesting offerings. 

The three clash against one another in our fresh-off-the-bat specs comparison, so just scroll down below and compare their specs to your heartfelt content.
