Review: Motorola Droid Maxx 2 for Verizon Wireless

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

The Motorola Droid Maxx 2 is a bargain. It may lack the Turbo 2's impressive break-proof screen, but it performs at nearly the same high level in every other way.

The Maxx 2 clearly comes from Motorola's design team and is an attractive phone with great materials and build quality. Toss in the interchangeable rear shells and you can add just a bit of personality. The display doesn't boast Motorola's ShatterShield, but it is brighter and more attractive to the eye. Signal performance was excellent, though voice calls left me disappointed.

The battery is crazy good. The 3,630 mAh power cell pushes the phone from morning to night to morning to night again, which is vastly better than most phones today.

Android 5.1 is a solid platform, though I wish Verizon hadn't gummed it up so much with bloatware. Perhaps most importantly, the camera is quick and takes good pictures.

The Droid Maxx 2 costs $384 at full price, or about $16 per month on an installment plan. That's $250 less than the Turbo 2, and $275 less than many flagships. The Maxx 2 more than fills that gap with solid all-around performance. If you're shopping for a mid-range handset on Verizon's network, the Maxx 2 offer maximum value for the dollar.
