Motorola DROID MAXX 2 is a solid Android cellphone released a few years ago, equipped with a big size 5.5 inches display, a powerful 1.7 gigahertz CPU, and 2 cameras, a 21 MP back facing camera and a 5 mega-pixels front-facing camera. That’s everything we have to say? No, it’s just the starting point of a detailed review.
The Motorola DROID MAXX 2 feels much lighter than what you would expect from a phone this size. Motorola sells this cellphone in 2 different color options, black and white. The Motorola DROID MAXX 2 is quite a compact cellphone, taking into consideration it features a 5.5″ screen and it only has 5.83″ long. While this cellphone is quite slim and comfortable it’s not close to being one of the thinnest cellphones in the market, with a thickness of 0.43 inches.
The Motorola DROID MAXX 2 has a completely amazing 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 5.5 inches display, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels that compose the display. Its display uses TFT capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.
Motorola decided to equip this phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 8939 chip, including a quite powerful processing unit clocking at 1.7 gigahertz with a huge 2 GB of RAM. A nice point of this cellphone is its 16 GB quite big internal memory and an external SD slot, which allows you to store a couple hundred apps without any problem.
This phone provides WiFi capability (although it can’t share it with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high performance data connection or the fastest 3G connectivity, supported by HSPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks and it works with both CDMA and GSM.
This device has two cameras, a 21 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 5 MP front facing camera. It can also shoot Full HD 1920×1080 videos at 30 fps. To complete the camera, it also counts with a few interesting features like digital image stabilization, flash, face detection shooting and geo tagging.
This cellphone packs a 3630 mAh long lasting Li – Ion non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this phone with a great battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this phone’s battery is not replaceable so you can’t buy a new battery when it starts losing capacity, though with so much capacity you will probably discard this phone before it becomes a real problem.
This device also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other devices, computers, and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.
The Motorola DROID MAXX 2 is probably a good choice for you no matter if you want it mainly for social networks and internet browsing, need a cellphone for gaming, want it to take tons of photos or are looking for a device for work.
