Motorola Droid Maxx
And for $299, with 32GB of storage and the amazing battery, this is well worth the money. Best Android phone on Verizon currently in my humble opinion.
I have the Razr Maxx HD and I like it but it is buggy and freezes a lot. My upgrade date is in October. When you handled this phone, was it very responsive? Did it lag at all in data?
I disabled a lot of apps on my current phone and cleared the cache, but it still has problems.
I attribute much of the issues from the Droid Bionic up to now to Blur being embedded in android. That is not the case now that Google owns Moto. Blur is gone and it is pure fast android.
As for the android install on it, it's as close to pure android as you can get without going with a nexus or "google experience device" neither one of which is offered on Verizon (at least, no "new'ish" ones anyway, still the OG nexus, but if you prefer 2-3 year old hardware, be my guest).
The bloat is on everything on all carriers that's not a nexus/GE device and this one has very little of it from what I see. A couple items disabled was all that was needed.
I'm guessing you just hate moto?
I know you can disable apps, but I still find it insulting even having to look at "City ID" and "Verizon Tones" every time I go into the app drawer. Keep in mind I'm coming from a Gnex, so I'm really biased agst bloat.
In any case sdgmcdon PLEASE follow-up shortly and lemme know of any shortcomings 😎
Battery life has been outstanding though I am still able to easily drain it by 3-4 pm on a busy day (for me though, that's GOOD, I've had phones in the past that would be dead by 10am, starting at 7:00am). On not so busy days it gets through the day until it hits the charger at bedtime.
My only real gripe is it seems either moto or Verizon (not sure which) broke "portable wifi hotspot" on the device. Worked on my razr maxx hd and note 2, so I'm assuming they killed it on the new droid line (it basically enabled the hots...
