Motorola DROID Turbo 2 and DROID Maxx 2 size comparison vs rivals: how big is big enough?


During an event today, Verizon announced two exclusive Motorola devices - the DROID Turbo 2 and DROID Maxx 2. Do they have what's needed to grasp your attention? Well, we believe so!

The two sport some rather up-to-date specs, with the Turbo 2 being a tad higher-end one. It comes with a 5.4-inch AMOLED Quad HD display that is allegedly shatterproof, a Snapdragon 810 chip, 3 gigs of LPDDR4 RAM, a 21MP rear camera, and a large 3,760mAh battery. As far as the run of the mill DROID Maxx 2 is concerned, we are dealing with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 615 chipset, a 21MP camera, and also sizeable 2,630mAh battery.

What about the size, though? Certainly, they are not the most compact devices Motorola has ever made, but how do they stack up against the competition? We were quite eager to find out, so we devised a concise size comparison between them and other noteworthy rivals.

Verizon sure loves to f*** up their phones with the horrendous logo. This one is on a whole new level though. We have 1 big and 2 small speakers now?

Dude...its a frikkin check-mark at the bottom of the phone. Are you seriously offended by a logo? I was proud to be on Verizon. I could care less about their branding on phones. Who cares?! Well, outside of you?! Their logo is no better or worse than anyone else's. Get an iPhone. Apple doesn't allow carrier branding on their device.

The Droid Maxx and Turbo had nothing on the face of the phone. That was a breath of fresh air from Verizon. And the Galaxy S3,4,5,6, and Note 3,4,5 got away stamp-free. I don't care what you stamp on the back of the phone. Leave the face alone. Yeah, it's nitpicking, but it's still annoying to look at.

Not just the Logo bruh, the phone just looks plain U G L Y... Moto, what you guys doin' to the design?

78 mm wide. That's way more than even Note 5. I remember the days when moto mused to make sensible sized phones like the OG moto X.

Even the new Moto X is very reasonably sized for a 5.7". I don't know why the Turbo 2 is so chunky, but I assume it has to do with the screen and/or protective facing.

I guess it's for protecting the glass too. But that's too big.

Being able to replace the outer screen yourself, is always a plus. Being able to warranty a screen for 4 years is pretty good as well, even at the cost of a few mm of width. I believe it's an acceptable trade off for what you get. If this wasn't the case, and it was still this wide, then I would had an issue.

They are great phones but what about people who need larger screen seize a 6.2"screen phone would be very nice

Just up it to 7 inches, and use it as your laptop, phone, tablet. Everything is headed in that directions. Similar to the Transformer series. I would love to carry one device, with everything on it. Just need a beefy battery pack for on the go charging. Life would be so much simpler. If they would just slap a phone in a Ipad Mini, or Galaxy tab, or even a Slate, it would be awesome.
