Great Simple Phone at a Great Price

Battery life and cost are the main reasons to get this phone, and both are great. This phone really does last the claimed 2 full days with normal usage; for me that is a few phone calls daily, a bunch of texts, browsing the web and Facebook for an hour or two daily, listening to an hour or two of podcasts daily, and using the camera and flashlight intermittently, as well as checking email from time to time. The phone is also synced to my Moto360 watch as well. The battery performance is FAR superior to the Note 4 I had AND the Note 5 my wife currently uses.
I switched from a Galaxy Note 4 on Sprint to this phone, so I was concerned that I would miss the features and power from the Note 4 OR regret not going to a Note 5. However, I have not missed either. This is a much simpler version of Android OS, and as such it commands much less juice as compared to the Samsung offerings. Although it has 2GB of RAM, 1 less than the Note 4, they both have around 1 GB free after OS and background apps are considered, so the Maxx 2 doesn't suffer much. Compared to the Note 4, I cannot notice any difference in performance in normal usage, but I also do not Netflix or game on my phone. The screen looks sharp and is actually easy to see in the full sun. The onboard memory is only 16GB but is expandable, a feature lost on many other phones. I miss the S Note and phablet features, but the smaller size makes it more comfortable to hold and stow in my pocket.
All in all, a 2 day battery, $384 price tag, expandable memory, sharp screen, and simple android platform make this a wonderful phone for someone looking for an affordable, long-lasting phone that gets the job done.

Great Motorola Smartphone
Posted by: Markcat5 from: on
This phone is fantastic for half the price of the Turbo's. Large MP camera, great screen picture (even got compliments from other smartphone owners about the screen quality).. Long battery life compared to my other smartphone. I've had it for about six months and so far there isn't anything that I don't like about it.

Great smartphone for a reasonable price
Posted by: Aaron from: on
The phone functions as it should and does everything I want it to do. The battery life on this phone is better than most. The only complaint is the photos that are taken with the phone seem too dark if they are shared on online or printed out, but they look OK on the phone.

Easy phone to transition to.
Posted by: godlywoman from: on
Have had no trouble learning how to use this phone. If you have had success using an Android before, you will have no trouble transitioning to this droid. Love the durability, the big screen size, and the clear pictures.

Big flaw not advertised.
Posted by: BigB from: on
As a Phone it work OK. Reception is not the best I have seen but not the worst. Screen is a good size.
The big issue is that there are only 3 volume controls while most phones have 4.
1-Ringtone, 2-Media, 3-Notification, 4-Systems.
#3 is not on this phone. So if you want your ringtone at an OK level and Text messages at a higher level (almost everyone does this), You cant!

I was able to get phone for $! which I thought was a deal, it is a nice phone but getting a deal with a contract or paying full price all comes out to be same,, because my serice went up $20 month and payments would be $20 a month. good phone but if you do not plan to buy a new phone in 24 months.. BUY ON PAYMENTS
