In Motorola Droid MAXX news, the handset enters the 2014 New Year with a Top 10 Best Smartphones designation. The Android-dedicated Droid Life considers the handset the #7 overall Android performer of 2013, a nice achievement since literally hundreds of mobile handsets debut every year. On the financial side of the equation, purchasing that critically praised Verizon smartphone will not keep you from paying off your holiday bills as you enter the new year.
The phone is available at the Amazon Wireless store online at around $24.99 on contract. And good news will arrive with the new year in the form of the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system update on the Motorola Droid MAXX 4G. Motorola Mobility has announced that its entire 2013 line of handsets will be receiving the operating system boost in the first quarter of 2014. That line includes the Moto X (which has already received the Android 4.4 update), the Droid Ultra and the Droid Mini smartphones.
All of these devices deliver the uniquely designed and battery-friendly Motorola X8 Mobile Computing system, which spreads low priority and low draw operations across eight different processing cores. While this does help conserve battery power, it also speeds up your experience. That power-friendly feature combines with special light and proximity sensors that also conserve juice to boost the extended life 3,500 mA battery to an incredible 48.0 hours of all-around use after a full charge. That is easily the best offering of any smartphone, approximately 4 times the industry average.
The Motorola Droid Maxx 4G also delivers a large display, high resolution, substantial RAM memory allotment and a new Clear Pixel camera technology which captures more light while cutting down on blur and noise. Measuring a wafer-thin 8.5 mm (0.33 inches), and boasting a durable Kevlar back plate and scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass protection, the Droid MAXX offers a large 5.0 inch screen with a resolution of 720 by 1,280 pixels. That True HD capacitive, multitouch display is home to more than 16 million colors, and the phone is powered by a 1.7 GHz CPU and 2.0 GB of RAM system memory.
The Droid MAXX also offers a full 32 GB of built-in data storage space, a versatile quad core graphics processor, and a main camera with a 10.0 megapixel sensor. That rear shooter provides video capture in 1,080 P HD resolution, and at the rate of 60 frames per second. The Motorola Droid MAXX also offers a front facing chat cam with a 2.0 megapixel sensor, providing support for video chats. The handset offers Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, NFC and mobile hotspot connectivity options.
