The massive 7000 mAh battery on the DROID XYBOARD 10.1 is rated to provide up to 8 hours of web browsing over 4G LTE or 10 hours when using Wi-Fi, or over 10 hours of video playback on a full charge. This is about 3-4 hours more browsing time than the DROID XYBOARD 8.2 with its 3960 mAh battery.


When it comes right down to it, it’s a tough choice to choose a Verizon 10-inch tablet. When comparing he Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, both offer an array of high-end features and have the exact same price ($629 for the 32GB models with 2-year contract). We prefer the DROID XYBOARD 10.1 as it has a better overall feel to it, due to the premium materials used, which gives it extra durability for daily use. However, it comes a few months later but doesn't bring any significant improvements. In addition, with technology continuing to improve, it seems like there’s always a new tablet coming out, making it only a matter of time until the next big thing.
