Today, nearly all vendors, no matter the platform, have comparable devices with nearly the same features. So when it comes to choosing a phone, the devices are becoming more personal and embedded in our lives and choosing one that fits your lifestyle, is more important than ever.

But, with quality devices on the market like the HTC One and Moto X, is the Maxx able to stand on its own or is the device destined to hit the bargain bin in the near future.

The Droid Maxx is a well packed smartphone with a 1.7 Ghz dual-core CPU, quad core GPU running at 400MHz, 10MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 5-inch Super AMOLED display, 1280x720 screen resolution, 23GB of internal memory, LTE, and the prized possession of the phone, a 3500 mAh battery; the full spec list is posted below. All of this does not come cheap though, as the phone is $649.99 off contract or $299.99 with a two-year agreement.
