The new DROID devices have just been announced and one of the most popular ones will definitely be the Motorola DROID Maxx. Like it’s Maxx predecessors, this bad boy will be the king of battery life in a world where people struggle to get even a full “work day” of juice.
The DROID Maxx is said to offer 48 hours of battery life with “average” usage. This can be affected by many factors, but we are sure it can get you through a full day even with heavy use.
Motorola DROID Maxx specifications
- 5-inch HD display
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
- 1.7 GHz Dual Core with Quad–Core Graphics
- 2 GB of RAM
- 32 GB of internal storage
- 10 MP / 2 MP cameras
- 3,500 mAh
To top it off, the device is 9% thinner than its previous iteration. It also features the same unibody, kevlar build with gorilla glass protecting the screen. These characteristics make the Maxx the best alternative of the three devices announced today (others being the DROID Ultra and DROID Mini), but there is much more to enjoy.
All three devices have a 24% faster CPU and 100% faster GPU compared to the previous generation of DROID phones, in addition to doubled RAM memory. Software and features will be built equally across all new DROID smartphones, though.
Motorola DROID Maxx features
- Touchless control (eyes-free / hands-free)
- Active display
- Quick capture
- DROID Zap – wireless photo sharing
- Ingress comes pre-loaded and ready to use (no invite needed)
As expected, the DROID Maxx is the most expensive of the 3 devices at $299 with a 2-year Verizon contract. A little high, but it’s the standard for high-end smartphones on Verizon nowadays. If you are thinking of getting this bad boy, though, it will be ready for purchase on August 20th.
We are live at this NYC event, so be sure we will be getting some sweet hands-on action for you very soon!
