DROID Maxx Unboxing and Hands-on

DROID Maxx Unboxing and Hands-on

It's time to get a look at the largest of three DROID devices released this week by Motorola and Verizon: the DROID Maxx. This device takes on a form that's remarkably similar to the DROID Ultra, including software and hardware, but brings on a significantly larger battery and slightly different backside casing to differentiate. Here we've got essentially the same device as we showed yesterday in our DROID Ultra review, but with a lot longer battery life and a double-down on internal storage.

DROID Ultra Review

DROID Ultra Review

Motorola Mobility scored big when they teamed up with Google. If it wasn't evident enough in the Moto X, then certainly Motorola's newly optimized experience is ready to shine in the DROID Ultra, the first of three devices coming from Verizon in their newest exclusive brand lineup. If the DROID RAZR HD took the original DROID RAZR to a place where it was more than ready to be that single unique member of the Android universe that was both top-tier for display and processor quality as well as fully rugged enough to make up for the comparative lack of hype the line received, the DROID Ultra succeeds in replacing the RAZR line in more ways than one.

DROID Ultra vs Moto X: anything you can do, I can do better

This week the DROID Ultra hits the review bench at SlashGear, bringing with it a full understanding of how closely it'll be resembling the Moto X in features that - surprise - Google and Motorola implemented on the whole family. What we've seen thus far is a device that's only ever-so-slightly pulled in to the Motorola universe for apps - with a dash of Verizon, while we're at it. Essentially everything Moto X offers in a smartphone, DROID Ultra brings with just as much fury.

DROID Ultra unboxing and hands-on

The full second wave of DROID devices is hitting Verizon this month, with the DROID Ultra - the device landing on SlashGear's review bench today - sitting at the heart of the family. This device is the middle-ground, so to speak, between the DROID Maxx - with a similar size display and larger battery, and the DROID Mini, a reboot of the DROID RAZR M. Here we're seeing a sort of remix of what Motorola's reboot of the RAZR series should by default be bringing - boosted specifications - and what's appearing with the Moto X (software and hardware-wise).
