Reviews for the Motorola Droid Maxx 2

70% Sharp Camera, All-Day Battery
Source: Tom's Guide English
Long-lasting, splash-proof and modestly priced, the Droid Maxx 2 has nearly all the ingredients of a winning smartphone. Its capable cameras and helpful software also impress, but slow performance and a lot of bloatware hold this handset back. For around the same price, you could get the Nexus 5X, which provides not only faster performance but even more endurance and the latest Android Marshmallow OS. The Nexus 5X also has a convenient fingerprint sensor and solid cameras. However, Verizon customers who want a phone that can get a little wet and go the distance should consider the Droid Maxx 2.

70% Droid Maxx 2 by Motorola (Verizon Wireless)

For $384, the Motorola Droid Maxx 2 is a solid choice if you want the biggest battery possible and can't afford the Droid Turbo 2 (or if you find the Turbo 2 too large). That said, the 16GB Nexus 5X costs slightly less and has a faster processor, a better camera, the latest version of Android, no bloatware, and a guaranteed software update future. Or for roughly the same price, you can get a Moto X Pure, which can be customized via Moto Maker and has a beautiful Quad HD display. The Maxx 2 is a good phone, but stronger options abound.

The DROID Maxx 2 isn’t a flagship, and it’s not going to win any competitions against them. However, it is a very viable mid-range phone that performs right where we’d expect it to. It feels nice, performs well, and lasts at least all day and all night. It’s not as high-end as the DROID Turbo 2, doesn’t feature the “Shatter Shield” screen the Turbo 2 has, doesn’t include wireless charging (in any form), and is only available in a 16GB configuration. While these are minor inconveniences, they’re a little disappointing on a new smartphone – especially one under the DROID label. Nonetheless, if you’re a Verizon Wireless customer and the DROID Turbo 2 isn’t for you, the DROID Maxx 2 is the next in line.

DROID Maxx 2 Review

In closing, while the DROID Maxx 2 is a neat little package, it just doesn’t do it for me. Performance is extremely sluggish at times, the camera is a major step backwards from other devices, and frankly, there are much better options currently on the market. For almost $400, sorry, I expect better. I can get a Moto X Pure Edition for that price. With the DROID Maxx 2, you will have good battery life, but you may never know when to expect an Android update thanks to Verizon’s “certification process,” and that’s never a good thing for Android owners.

With the Droid Maxx 2, Verizon customers can now pick up their own version of the Moto X Play in the United States. Users can expect great battery life of at least a full day, a near stock Android software experience and a great camera for a relatively low price.

Before writing out the DROID MAXX 2 from memory, there’s just one single noteworthy thing that propels it over its distinguished sibling – its long-lasting battery life! We thought the DROID Turbo couldn’t be beaten, but the DROID MAXX 2 chugs on longer, easily claiming the top spot in Motorola’s portfolio. It’s satisfying on so many levels, just because it’s another phone that proves that we as consumers, deserve phones that can last us more than a single day.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.
76.2%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
