The Droid Maxx 2 Sets a High Standard in Its Price Range

Droid maxx 2The Droid Maxx 2 has a large 5.5” screen with a resolution of 1,920×1,080. It is as sharp as the screen of the new Nexus 5X, with a pixel density of 403 ppi, but it reveals more color vividness, almost oversaturation, with lighter shades. Thanks to this clarity, viewing images from different angles presents no difficulty and there is no issue seeing the display during bright days. In contrast, the Moto X Style has softer colors with truer shades, but the Droid Maxx 2’s screen is not waterproof, so do not drop it in into the water.

Experts examined the Maxx 2’s options in the center of the city and saw powerful connections during usage with voice calling that works like a charm, with reliable audio and noise cancellation. Its only problem is that the volume is rather low and it is hard to hear the other person in a loud environment, such as the ones met in many crowded places in the cities.

The battery power of the Droid Maxx is great and, in the specialists’ tests, where they consistently ran full-screen clips at top brightness and LTE, the smart phone lasted for more than 8 hours. It ran only an hour less than the Droid Turbo 2, which has only a little larger battery under the case.

The producer compensates the average efficiency with a strong digicam, which seems to be similar to the sensor used for Moto X Style and the Droid Turbo 2. Its 21MP camera makes good photos with excellent illumination, with nice quality and true colors. However, small details like human hairs or other tiny objects are somewhat missing, which other devices can shoot without any difficulty.

The Droid Maxx 2 works perfectly in lower lighting with the HDR activated and exposure to the maximum level. It behaves in a decent manner when recoding outdoor videos, but it has a few auto-focus problems in dark environments. Unexpected movements will immediately make its sensor to target them and refocus for a short time until stabilizing the entire image.

The 5MP front-facing digicam on the Droid Maxx 2 shoots excellent pictures in sunlight, but experiences some issues in low light spaces, despite the addition of a Night Mode that lights the entire screen for a second, in a similar way to the iPhone 6s’ recent feature. Once again, other smart phones in the Nexus line are capable to make better and more in depth photos in both configurations. Overall, the new Droid Maxx has an extremely capable camera that works well in most situations.
