Motorola Droid Maxx

Like last year, we continue to wonder why Motorola makes two near-identical phones where battery and size is the only real differentiator. But still, lets get through quickly the specifications of this one Motorola device:


Everything at the front of this phone: the shape, button placement, display and everything else is the same, looks like the Droid Ultra phone.

Once you flip the phone over to see its backside, however, you'll see the immediate difference. Instead of a glossy back, the Maxx has a soft-touch carbon-fiber-like pattern on the back. At the top is the 10MP camera, flash and speaker - just like the Ultra - and beneath it are Droid, Motorola and Verizon branding.


The Droid Maxx will take a lot of abuse before you can kill off its battery. Motorola promises up to 48 hours of battery life with mixed use, and it gets pretty close in real life.

Motorola DROID MAXX has a 3500 mAh battery, which is 200 mAh more than its predecessor, and the kind of capacity only phablets get equipped with nowadays, and cited for up to 48 hours of battery life.

Display and size

The 5-inch display has a 1280 x 720 resolution, which is only a slight disappointment. When compared to the HTC One or LG G2, it's clear that the Droid Maxx isn't nearly as sharp, but in everyday use it's not a terrible ordeal.

The Droid Maxx measures 5.41 x 2.8 x 0.33 inches, and weighs 5.89 ounces. It's not as thin and light as some other smartphones out there, but considering the benefit of battery life, it's not a bad tradeoff.


Its price in Uganda is quite high 1 810 000 UGX, so I recommend you to look for used smartphones online

In summary…

Overall, the Motorola Droid Maxx is a solid smartphone. We really liked having Touchless Control options as well as battery life that we can count on. Nothing is more frustrating than reaching the end of your day and wondering whether you'll need to find a charger near by or just be out of luck.
