That was what pushed me over the edge. The G2 has a great screen and camera, but the Maxx (and Ultra, Mini, and Moto X) has a much cleaner interface. Samsung and LG need those superpowered quad cores just to keep up with their own gimmicky skins.

I love my Droid Ultra so anyone that wants any of the new Droids should jump on this while it lasts!

did anyone notice the full retail on the maxx is now 499! is this a glitch? ultra 449 and mini 399. maxx was 699 full retail when first released and then dropped to 649 but 499 is a steal!

Hmm, those are unusually sudden and unusually large price drops. I might expect something like this if they were preparing to release a new device, causing them to have to drop the prices for their current line. Considering that these devices were released just a couple months ago though, I don't know...

i'll take a guess that the price drops are due to an oversaturation of the market, particulary verizon's. they have had 6 new phones drop on their networks since the GS4 came out. even though they have the most subscribers nationwide, there's only so much money to go around. this is a brilliant marketing ploy to pull even more people from other carriers.
