50% Motorola Droid MAXX Review
Source: Ubergizmo English English
The Droid MAXX can certainly keep you from having a dead battery for a very long time, although we didn’t find it anywhere close to the 48 hours Motorola has been touting in their recent ads for the device. The phone is a nice step up from the previously released Droid RAZR MAXX, although it isn’t without its faults.

80% Motorola Droid Maxx

Verizon customers have a tough decision to make when buying a top-tier Android phone, even when choosing among new Motorola devices. If you like Motorola's touchless voice controls, the $199 Moto X is a great choice because of its compact design.

70% Motorola Droid Maxx review: More battery life, more of the same
Source: TechHive.com English
Aside from its exceptional battery life, the Droid Maxx is about as average as you can get for an Android phone. It looks similar to the Droid Ultra and most of its marquee software features are available on other Motorola devices like the Moto X. At $300 with a new 2-year contract on Verizon, the phone is the most expensive of the Droid line and hard to recommend to anyone but the most battery hungry consumers. If you hate that you can't go more than a day without charging your phone then the Droid Maxx should suit your needs just fine.

DROID Maxx Review
Source: Slashgear English
If you’re deciding between the DROID family members Mini, Maxx, and Ultra, you’ll be dropping a difference of $100 here or there for storage space and screen size. The big differences between the Maxx and the Ultra lie in their internal storage space – 16GB for the Ultra and 32GB for the Maxx, their battery size (and therefor device thickness), wireless charging, and body makeup.

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)
Source: PC Mag English
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.

79% MAXX is the proper word to describe it
Source: Pocketnow English
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
Source: Droid-Life English
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.

84% Motorola Droid Maxx 2 Review
Source: Android Authority English
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.

78% Motorola Droid Maxx 2 Review
Source: Phone Arena English
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.
