Verizon Wireless on Tuesday announced the DROID Maxx 2, a new long-lasting smartphone that offers decent specs that might appeal to consumers who don’t want to pay the price of the DROID Turbo 2.
The Maxx 2 feels solid in the hand, almost flagship-like, though its specs leave a bit to be desired. It sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display that, in comparison to the Turbo 2, isn’t as sharp or as resistant to shattering when dropped. It’s crisp and clear, though, and was relatively easy to see in bright sunlight during our brief hands-on opportunity.
The processor isn’t as fast as the Turbo 2. You’ll find a Snapdragon 615 chip under the hood, compared to the flagship-level Snapdragon 810 in the Turbo 2. Thankfully, however, the battery should easily last up to the promised 48 hours, especially given that the phone packs a large 3630mAh battery. Paired with that 1080p screen and Snapdragon 615 processor, and we suspect you’ll be chugging along even under heavy usage.
