Gave into the Droid Maxx
Well, I have given up the illusion that I will find a phone that offers both a huge battery and SD card support (besides the Note, which is just too big for me) and I decided to go straight to the biggest battery I could find and got the Droid Maxx earlier this week. The phone itself is almost too big for me, but all the current high end phones are ginormous. I so-wanted to have another HTC phone, but until HTC decides to come to the table with a decent battery, I am not buying.
I was on vacation and my little Rezound was ruining the second consecutive vacation by eating up batteries and battery packs and living on chargers like intravenous drips. We took the Cape May ferry to Lewes and by the time we got on the return ferry, my battery and the power pack was dead and my phone was sucking a charger in the car while I was not getting to take pictures or do anything else. All the while my sister was snapping pictures with her GS4. That was it for me.
I did not want to return to Motorola, but I wanted the battery. I went on the search. It took me a few days because no one had them, not even Verizon online, but I eventually found one in a corporate store and what a difference in this battery. I have been working it like crazy. This is truly an all-day battery. The HTC One, in no way can compare as far as the battery. I am absolutely sure I would LOVE the One, but the battery is just not what it needs to be for that size of a screen. I am absolutely sure that I do NOT love Motorola, but the phone is a good phone and the battery is fabulous. It also has some nice features and the voice recognition is major accurate.
Here are two screen shots of all day use.
