    Different details on Motorola's site. Slightly different description of the pieces of the X8.

    They also list the Maxx as having wireless charging capability.

    And Verizon's site is listing it as a 2150 battery. I think they got the Ultra info under the Maxx.

    I'm excited to see the reviews of this phone. I've had nice phones with garbage cameras so I'm hoping they finally got it right with this one. My Note 2 takes great pictures(for my needs) so I hope it compares. I could care less about the MP as it has 10. I just want quality.

    You will see a pretty significant drop in display quality. Even thought the Note 2 has the same resolution on a bigger screen, the Note 2 is RGB AMOLED, which is a rarity. The NONRGB AMOLED on the DROID MAXX will leave MUCH to be desired.

    Everything else seems fine though, except MicroSD.

    That's another reason I can't switch. I really want to because the phone looks great but I was not a big fan of Motorola displays. Is this how Motorola gets so much battery life out of their devices?

    They get lots of battery life from a big battery. I honestly don't understand why other manufactures don't slam a 3000+ mah battery in their phones. It only makes the MAXX 1mm larger...


    AMOLED is an AWFUL AWFUL technology made by Samsung, which is why it's in all their phones...and it SUCKS. Sure it has deep blacks and punchy colors, but the clarity is AWFUL.

    Well yes its the battery size but I would imagine the mediocre screen would help the life. I'm with you in your wish though. Well, minus then flip antenna. Ha

    I haven't had any signal issues with my Note II or really any other phone for the most part so I don't need it. I know where you're coming from though.

    Every Samsung phone I've ever owned (Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, S2, S3, S4) has had horrible signal and was returned because of it...except the Note 2, which IMO was on par with the MAXX HD in terms of signal strength...battery life too. I just wasn't a huge fan of it's enormous size.

    The enormous size is one thing I liked but now I'm growing tired of it. However, my options are limited because I want good signal, battery life and a display worth looking at. Seeing as you mentioned the Note II is the only Samsung with a decent screen + signal that leaves the S4 out. And my experience with the Maxx HD was that the screen was awful in low light situations. I was hoping this new Droid Maxx would have a better display but I guess I'm sticking with the Note.

    I will take longer battery life along with mediocre screen over mediocre battery life with superb screen. Too bad they can't combine them in one phone.

    Does anyone else feel like once these new Droids are released, their will be a Droid Ultra HD Maxx version just come out a couple months after. I've been burned by Motorola with the Bionic as others were with the Razr before and am not sure if I want to upgrade knowing something better is just around the corner.

    By DROID ULTRA HD MAXX, are you implying we may get 1080 variants of the DROID ULTRA and DROID MAXX rather quickly?

    For the record, as a Bionic owner I never felt burned by the release of the RAZR. The Bionic was probably two to three months late. That wasn't going to push back the release of the RAZR.

    Doubtful, I also look at the original RAZR Maxx as a rarity and it was done so Motorola could also claim they had the thinnest phone. In this case you're given three choices right out of the gate so nothing will change. You may get lucky and see a 1080 version next year but not before that. By next year I mean next fall when the second generation Droid Ultra and Maxx will launch.

    Apparently there isn't anything but an all-black device being offered. Does that have to do with the materials used in the case? Also, anyone have a clue to 3rd party cases for the Droid Maxx? Doesn't seem to be any yet.

    No clue but I hope CruzerLite offers their case soon. By far the best TPU case I've ever used on a phone. The only reason I'm not using one on my Note II is because Samsung offers a sleek case of their own.

    Diztronic makes the best TPU cases I've used.
