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. Still, 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.
