Droid's Dexterity aka Motorola Droid MAXX

The Droid Maxx is a high end smartphone developed by Motorola Mobility. It is part of the Verizon Droid line, and was announced on 23 July 2013 along with the Droid Ultra and Droid Mini at a joint Motorola and Verizon Wireless press conference. The Droid Maxx maintains a similar design shape to its predecessor, the Droid Razr HD, including the Dupont Kevlar unibody form. It included Motorola’s proprietary X8 Mobile Computing System, which consists of 8 cores: 2-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro applications processor, 4-core Adreno 320 graphics processor, 1 low-power core for natural language processing, and 1 low-power core for contextual awareness processing to enable the new Touchless Control feature. The internal battery was increased in size to 3,500 mAh. The on-screen buttons for back, home, and multitask functions were moved to off-screen capacitive soft-keys below the screen. Finally, the Droid Maxx also includes Motorola’s Active Notification feature (also found on the Moto X device). Reception towards the device was mostly positive, with the caveat that the device is only available on the US carrier, Verizon Wireless. Some reviewing outlets called the device “the best Android device available on Verizon Wireless”. Many others praised Motorola’s Active Notification system, which turns on part of the AMOLED screen to “blink” notifications to the user, in lieu of a traditional LED notification light. The soft touch kevlar unibody as well as the overall physical design was praised as well. Reviewers were mixed to the device’s continued use of a 720p HD resolution at a 5 in screen size, though complimented the AMOLED display's brightness, deep blacks, and its benefits to battery conservation.
