Motorola is certainly no stranger from turning their popular smartphones into “MAXX” devices as their previously popular Motorola Droid Razr received such a treatment shortly after its release. If you’re unfamiliar with what exactly a MAXX device is, it’s Motorola’s way of stuffing as much battery power into one of its devices without it actually exploding into a billion pieces. Think of it as the Extra Strength version of your favorite pain medication. They give you just enough medicine where it doesn’t completely kill you.
All joking aside, Motorola has released yet another set of Droid devices this year, and as you’d expect, they’ve created one whose emphasis is long-term battery life. The Motorola Droid MAXX shares the same internal specs as the Motorola Droid Ultra, which features a 5-inch Super AMOLED 1280 x 720 display, a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 10MP main camera, and a 2MP front-facing camera. The only difference between the Droid Ultra and the Droid MAXX is the fact it has a 3,500 mAh battery attached to it, making it slightly thicker than the Ultra.
