Motorola DROID MAXX Specs



Motorola DROID MAXX has a 3500 mAh battery, which is 200 mAh more than its predecessor, and the kind of capacity only phablets get equipped with nowadays, and cited for up to 48 hours of battery life. That capacity is keeping the lights on a very interesting set of specs - 5" HD OLED display (not PenTile), 1.7 GHz homemade processor, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. Exact dimensions go as follows: 137.5x71.20x8.5 mm, so pretty thin despite the giant battery, and fairly light for a 5-incher at 160 grams, or 5.6 ounces. The "Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System" SoC sports 1.7 GHz dual-core application processor, 400 MHz quad-core GPU, natural language processor, and a contextual computing processor, for an octa-core concoction, claims Moto. The 10 MP camera on the back sports the new ClearPixel technology, which applies different RGBC color filter than the traditional Bayer RGBG one, bringing in more photons at low-light scenarios thus dealing better with blur and noise, at least on theory.

This device is also known as Motorola XT-1080M

Solid Phone
Phone owned for less than 3 months

I searched for a phone that i could use for a long time. All the review favored LG G2. I used lg g2 one month and gave it back because of gps issue. Battery barely lasts 1 day.
Then i got this phone. So happy.

Average battery life.
Phone owned for less than a month

Hello. I have read all the comments above. But i have a droid that is running on droid ultra motherboard. The battery looks as if it is 1500 mAh battery! Overall, the best phone in the world if battery issue is ignored. It has all those specs that makes this phone the best of all. Sometimes i think that my phone is faulty. Gaming is unmatchable.

I love the Droid Max
Phone owned for less than a year

Best phone I have owned. Great durability and damage resistance. Call quality and reception are excellent in my opinion. The internet is pretty fast, though I will admit the speed drops exponentially from 4G to 3G. The camera needs a bit of work. It appears that they dropped a lot of functions from the DROID RAZR MAXX to the DROID MAXX, including setting options like "macro", "portrait", "fireworks", etc, and instead used a single all encompassing autofocus which doesn't quite live up to what it needs in my opinion. Otherwise, the phone is fast, reliable, and easy to use. The learning curve is lower than on other phones in my opinion.

My favorite thing about this phone though, is the battery life. I keep GPS, data feeds, data push, and apps like facebook running all day and at the end, the battery is still at ~60%. The phone is almost a year old now and still runs like new.
