    Default Are you still happy with your Droid Maxx?

    Howdy . . I keep thinking I'm going to upgrade to this phone or that phone (z30, moto x, htc one, iphone, etc), but everytime I walk in the store and hold the Maxx I just think its perfect for me. So I'm just asking for those of you who've had this phone awhile, do you still like it? even compared to the newer ones out like the x? How's it doing with kitkat (although that may be too early to tell)? Would you buy it again? etc . . .?

    Thanks!

    I've had mine for about 4 days and I'm loving it. I love the near-stock Android experience. Motorola has very little skin on this phone - and the stuff they did put on here, are great features! Moto Assist, Touchless Control, and Active Display are awesome. No other phones offer that. Call quality has been nice and clear, good speaker phone, fast UI, plenty loud, good form factor (I love the grippy kevlar back). I've had very good luck so far on the battery front (knock on wood) .. no issues. It's a big battery - takes a good while to charge back up. But I've been lucky with this phone so far. I recommend it!

    I've had mine since a couple weeks after launch, and if I had to buy a phone today, I'd buy another in a heartbeat.

    I love it. Couldn't ask for more in a phone. Well, maybe a better low-light camera and an IPS display, but hey nothing is ever perfect. In all honesty, the Maxx is the best phone for MY needs, and that's how it should be.

    I'm still thrilled with mine after two weeks. Its only little flaw has actually helped me appreciate its massive battery: the micro USB connector is a little too stiff. Twice now I've thought I plugged it into the wall charger at night, only to find in the morning that the plug wasn't engaged. No big deal though, as the phone still had plenty of charge.

    A wireless charger like the Tylt solves that problem.

    I've had it since 9 am of launch day, so just over 5 months. I'd buy this phone today (or the Moto X or iPhone 5s) if I had to buy a new phone, yes. I love this phone. It's not perfect - I have a few issues with BT audio, but they are very minor and I can live with them. The best thing about this phone is the size of the battery. I do much more with my phone than I would have with any other phone because I know the battery will last all day.

    The downsides (besides the BT issues?) Since the 4.4 update, there is a bug that when you press the home key it registers the press as a double-press of the key, which is mildly annoying. Compared with the Moto X, it is clear that this phone will be about a month or so behind for any Android updates that Motorola decides to work on. (So far, that's still weeks before any other non-Google Play/Nexus phone.) I don't care about this at all, but clearly Verizon, who who owns the Droid brand, wants Motorola to skip the minor look-and-feel changes made to KitKat and stick with the Holo blue Jelly Bean theme and JB dialer - this is hardly the end of the world.

    This is a great phone. I think it should be considered one of the great devices on Verizon Wireless right now, still, 5 months after release.

    Trading the Maxx for an iPhone would be akin to trading a Ferrari for a pile of toenail clippings...in my humble (but very accurate) opinion.

    Just bought this phone yesterday. I wouldn't trade the battery life for anything. My only gripe is the camera mainly. But for what i do upload to Facebook and instagram it is still pretty good. I'd buy another in heartbeat

    Since launch, and of all the phones out there now, the Maxx would still be my choice today. In fact, at this point in time, I am only looking forward to the next iteration.

    The satisfaction of having all of my location settings and sync settings on, and still having more than enough battery to handle anything I throw at it is invaluable peace of mind.

    I have to agree with you guys. Having a battery that you don't have to worry about is a huge plus no matter what else phone can do

    I would buy this phone over and over again based on my experiences thus far. It already has potential to be the best phone I've ever owned, even when keeping past phones and the eras I used them in within a proper perspective. But this battery life... the Maxx is entering some seriously uncharted territory and I'm liking it.

    I've had this phone for a few months now. Also still have my note 3, which has been sitting on my desk for 3 months now. I always think I'm going to switch back, but there is just something that keeps me drawn to the maxx. Could there be improvements? Sure, the screen could be better. Is nowhere near the quality of the note. The camera is my biggest complaint, but for a phone it gets me by. I use about 5 to 6k minutes a month and need a good quality phone and speaker. Both have been impressive.

    Aye. Moto knows how to do sound. My Nextel was the loudest phone that I've ever owned. Call quality is great as well.

    The only other phone I would consider comparable is a HTC One. The reason why is the front facing speakers, screen, and build quality.

    The max has a great build quality but I hate the buttons. The software and battery are unbeatable. I would buy it again today or maybe get a new Sony phone.

    Good to know jdfry15. Thought about the note3. I've had my MAXX for over a month, did a lot of homework and I definitely made the right choice! Great phone and yes I would buy again.

    I would only consider a Note 3 or iPhone 5S along with the MAXX after having the MAXX for 5 months. That said, the news of the sale of Moto has me strongly leaning trading it for one of those 2 devices.

    Meh. Nothing on my phone changed at all since this sale was announced. It's not going to change tomorrow, either. It's still a great phone, no doubt, and will continue to be. The sale won't be finalized for months (probably not until 2015). [Google announced the acquisition of Motorola in August, 2011, and the deal wasn't finalized until May, 2012.]

    Until then Motorola will continue to operate as it has, because the last thing Google wants is to have the value of the company decline due to negligence and then have the sale turn out to not be approved. Motorola still has a contract with Verizon to support this phone.

    That said - Apple and Samsung aren't being sold to anybody. And, of the three, only Apple has a store you can go to and get a warranty exchange, or even broken screen repaired, while you wait. I'm beginning to think that is worth a lot going forward.

    The Maxx has been the best smartphone I have EVER owned. I'm very happy with it.

    I'm also sad and anxious about Motorola being sold. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about my next smartphone......
