Motorola DROID Phones Review

You are currently viewing Motorola DROID Phones Review

The original Motorola DROID was the first device to, so to speak, work successfully on the Android platform. So we can say that the Motorola DROID is a phone that has started a revolution of epic proportions. As time went on, this original line of devices, promoted and used by the American giant Verizon, slowly gave way to the Galaxy series of smartphones coming from Samsung. However, these days Motorola is one step away from the official presentation of new members of this family: DROID Ultra, DROID MAXX and DROID mini.

Motorola and Verizon have decided to rekindle the fame of the old ace by introducing as many as three new phones.

The DROID MAXX is the new flagship model. This is a phone for people who do not want to agree to any compromises. This phone has top performance and a long-lasting battery, which is no wonder if we keep in mind that Motorola preferred high-capacity batteries even before the winter by Google. This MAXX is thinner than the previous model, because it has a seductive waist of only 8.5 mm. Its 3,500 mAh battery is enough for relaxed use of the phone for two days! At the same time, Motorola has set aside the option for wireless charging.

As for the interior, it has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of “ordinary” memory, while the entire device is powered by a dual-core processor with 1.7 GHz.

The DROID MAXX may not have the best design on the market, but its body, which looks like it was cast in one piece, is still worthy of a phone of this rank. Its weight of 167 grams is not so small, but for this massive device with a 5-inch screen, it may be the only possible one.

The screen is in HD and with its 720 × 1280 pixels it is not the best on the market, but it is certainly great and it will be hard to find any serious objections. In terms of multimedia equipment, MAXX has two cameras (2MP front and 10MP rear with LED Flash Clear Pixel technology).


For those who do not want to give up high performance, but not the slim body that MAXX has, DROID Ultra could be the right solution. This phone, when it appears on the market, will try to be the thinnest, with a waist of only 7.18 mm, which is certainly an ambitious plan. The DROID Ultra should have an identical processor as the MAX, but also cameras and a diagonal and screen resolution. Still, it will be slightly lighter than the massive MAXX and will have a smaller battery, with a capacity of 2,130mAh.


The DROID Mini for Motorola could be the same as the One Mini for HTC. This compact Android phone should have the power of an Ultra model, but in a smaller “package” with a 4.3-inch screen, but also with the same resolution of 720 × 1280 pixels.

All three models will have Touchless Control, ie the option of contactless control, but also an interesting option called Active Display, which will illuminate only certain parts of the screen, if necessary, to see some important data, such as the clock or missed calls. This option will definitely work on AMOLED screens in MAXX and Ultra models, while on the Mini’s LCD screen it could be a bit less successful. is an affiliate.
