Verizon Motorola DROID Maxx Hands-On!

We had to fight tooth and nail to bring you the full specs of the Motorola DROID Maxx – for some reason Motorola wasn’t making that very public knowledge during the event – but alas we’ve rounded them up, complete with a full hands-on with the phone. Motorola is promising 48 hours of usage time with the DROID Maxx, its big selling point, thanks to a large 3,500mAh battery. That kind of battery life comes at a cost, however.

The DROID Maxx offers similar as the DROID Ultra, including a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, a 10-megapixel camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, and a 5-inch display with a 720p resolution. It’s noticeably heavier and bulkier than the DROID Ultra, however, because Motorola needed to toss in that full size battery. We’re also a bit partial to 1080p screens these days, though text still looked crisp on the phone. ┬áStill, this is going to be an excellent option for anyone who is frequently trying to find an outlet. On looks alone, though, we’re definitely in favor of the 7mm-thin DROID Ultra.

The DROID Maxx is available for pre-order now but will be in stores on Aug. 20. As a bonus, anyone who orders between now and September 30 will receive 6 free months of Google Play music.
