    Default Nexus 5 is out, still glad I have my MAXX

    For anyone not aware yet, Google has finally announced the Nexus 5:

    It looks like a great phone, and a killer deal for the price, but I'm still happy to have my Droid MAXX, mainly due to the always listening features and the huge battery. If I'd had to pay full price for my MAXX, then I might be less happy, but am glad I was able to get a workaround to pay contract price & keep my unlimited data.

    Now cue the threads where everyone starts clamoring for KitKat on the MAXX!

    Will the nexus 5 release on Verizon? The maxx is pretty darn close to aosp. So I don't think I would jump ship to the N5

    The Nexus 5 doesn't support Band 13 LTE. Therefore, its safe to say that Verizon will not support this device.

    No, but Google says that they are working on "other projects" that will release on Verizon in 2014. My guess is tablets...

    I'm happy with the Maxx. I bought this phone for the battery and close to stock build. It still has both. And it's getting KitKat - eventually.

    Part of me wishes Verizon had the nexus. But, I'm satisfied enough with this phone/network that I'm not that upset by it.

    I wonder if goggles own touch less controls will be better than moto? Rumor was you can set the trigger phrase to anything.

    From what I'm seeing, it's not true touchless controls like the Moto lineup - the screen has to be on. Not sure, waiting to hear more, but one thing I saw on a Google spec page said something like "just say 'ok google' while in Google Now or the home screen". Doesn't sound like always listening to me.

    Android 4.4 will probably be more efficient due to the new processing coding and stuff. I mean, it gets 17 hours of talk time. That's longer than a Galaxy S 4

    I really wanted a Maxx last March when I was phone-looking for the first time but I didn't know back then it was only on Verizon. I didn't get one obviously but it's still a cool phone I'd buy if I could, and didn't have to sign with Verizon. For me prepaid is the only way after I finish with Sprint. Anyway, your Maxx is still a great phone.

    Agreed. That's a smaller battery than what my Bionic had. That would be totally unacceptable for me.

    It wasn't out in March. The Droid Maxx came out in August. Maybe you are thinking of the Razr Maxx.

    I am, indeed. Sorry about the mixup. But I'm sure the Droid Maxx is super too.

    It's been rock solid for me. I'm very happy with it. It's too bad that other manufacturers haven't adopted the common sense of creating a device with a battery similar to the maxx. What I'm saying is I don't understand why they haven't. It's a bit of a no brainer.

    I agree! Also I think they should all make openable battery cases and microSD slots. If they all had openable cases and replaceable batteries the phones would last much longer. I guess the carriers wouldn't like that since they keep people signing new contracts to get a new device.

    And this is the primary reason I bought a MAXX and know that it was the right choice for me. I'd rather have a Nexus, but I am on Verizon. Until the full switch to LTE and VOLTE, VZW will not get a Nexus.

    That said, I love the MAXX battery life and active notifications. I am not sure at this point that I would buy a Nexus over the MAXX, even if it was on VZW. Battery life in particular has change the way I use my phone. I absolutely love not worrying about having the power to make it through the day, no matter where I am or how hard I use the device.

    Would've been the RAZR HD Maxx.

    Even with the AWS spectrum that was purchased by VZW (Band 4 which IS supported by the Nexus 5), the roll out will take at least a full year before all the major markets receive it. Now, if Google makes a Dev phone (which is slim to none due to their track record with Nexus), we might see support for Band 13. But do you really want to wait that long?

    Galaxy Nexus owners were informed by Google that Kit Kat will not be available on their device. Since it was VZW's lone Nexus device, all of us who owned a Nexus are forced to choose the new Moto line due to the closeness to Stock Android. Truly a shame on Verizon's end. But it is truly like a double edge sword when you want a reliable network. Ugh!

    Android Central's initial battery review. The type of times mentioned in there would definitely be doable for me (certainly not desirable), but what would be concerning is what those time are going to look like months from now when the battery is worn down.

    Hell yes I'd still take my MAXX.
