Motorola launched the DROID Maxx on Verizon back in August for $299 on-contract, but just a few months later Amazon is offering some serious discounts on the long-lasting handset—especially when you sign up for a new Verizon Wireless account. New subscribers can pick up the device for as little as $39.99, while those looking for an upgrade on their current account or by adding a new line for the Maxx will have to pay $99.99 or $69.99, respectively.
The DROID Maxx’s claim to fame is its 3,500mAh battery, which Motorola says will last for up to 48 hours of use on a single charge. In case you need a refresher, the device also comes equipped with a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, a 10-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter and a 5-inch 720p display. The Maxx runs Android 4.2 out of the box with Motorola’s own UI on top.
If you’re looking for a long-lasting smartphone the DROID Maxx is a solid choice, though you may also want to consider Motorola’s other handsets. The flagship DROID Ultra packs similar specs into a much thinner 7mm design, while the Moto X offers the best user experience of any current Motorola handset.
