    Default Droid Maxx still a good phone?

    Hey guys I have a G2 with dead spots on the screen. Looking to either replace it with another one or with a Maxx. Had the Razr Maxx for 2 years with out much problems. Would you still recommend a Maxx after you had it for awhile?

    I have the ultra and it is still going strong, but I would wait. Rumors are swirling about a newer version coming.

    The Maxx has been one of the best phones I have owned. With what is on the market now it still ranks high. This is the time of year where new phones are in the pipeline. But you will not go wrong with getting a Maxx. If you can purchase it straight up without contract you will have the best of both worlds with the flexibility to change in 6 months

    I haven't seen one better, yet. Moto's quality when it comes to the radios is without equal. And the Moto stuff that's hardware related you cannot get elsewhere, the 'breathing' notifications, the flick of the wrist and shoot camera!, the 'touch it or move it to see the time'. Amazing stuff. Just upgraded my wife's a few months back and picked this one.

    Yes, still a good phone. Unlike my Thunderbolt, my Maxx has not developed a case of "lag." I don't have too much running in the background - I don't have active wallpaper, for instance, and I don't use Facebook or Twitter.

    I am waiting on the Moto 360 to see what that offers. I think they will make a great pair.

    Still a great phone. There is probably nothing out there I would trade it for as of now.

    Best phone I've ever owned, and I've owned a lot of flagship phones. Nothing else comes close in real life you-will-use-them features.

    I bought into the G3 mania and have been using one for a few days. Very nice device, but no always listening is a turn off.

    Still, the Maxx is getting a bit long in the tooth if you're the kind of guy who needs the latest and greatest. With the next version due soon, might want to hold off another month.

    That's a silly question. It's less than a year old. Of course it's still a good phone.

    I posted some comparo questions on the maxx vs all of the new stuff that is out there. While each might have a sweet feature that beats the maxx (Like the qHD screen on the G3), none of the new units come close to the whole maxx package. I might be tempted to move for a newer moto, but the maxx has me quite content almost a year in.

    I love my maxx and the latest update really helped the camera. ive tried all the flagships and overall nothing really beats the maxx . that being said ive not had great luck with the always listening feature . ive tried lots of time to use it in my daily use and it just never works properly. its easier to just touch the search button. that being said I love active notifications . I cant wait to see the new maxx and I pray it continues where this one leaves off.

    The battery life alone on this thing is amazing. It's great only having to charge my phone every other day and I like that I can charge my phone on Friday and have enough battery to get me through Monday. I've had many high end phones, and I really enjoy the Maxx. I've experienced no lag, no unexpected stops, it just works.

    I loved the G2 till this screen issue. Co worker had It for about a month and went back to an Iphone. Bought it used so no warranty. Noticed the sim cards are different. How would I change it over to a different sim?

    You'll either need to cut your SIM, use an adapter, or easiest to just get a proper SIM from your carrier.

    If you go the cutting route, don't try to do it by hand, buy a cutter from Amazon.

    It's a great phone, easily the best I've had and the first to cure me of my serial upgrade desire. Occasionally I'll have an impulse to jump on the G3 bandwagon, but I just live the battery life and smooth, dependable delivery of the Maxx.

    Well I ordered a Maxx off of Gazelle and It came as an Ultra. So mad. Just returned it. Still rocking the Razr Maxx. Maybe I'll wait to see what the next batch of phones will be.

    Droid maxx 16gb versions sell for under 300 on swappa.com and eBay. The 32gb, especially if dev edition or consumer edition with unlocked bootloader, sells for more, even used.

    If you're gonna root, make sure it's 4.4. Although there is a new exploit waiting to be released that will change that.
