New Moto DROIDs: The Wrap Up

The Droid Turbo 2, on the other hand, is a well-rounded smartphone. It’s not cheap, but you get some serious hardware for the money – and the display is both gorgeous and drop-it-on-cement-for-fun kind of tough. If you can overlook the big Verizon logo smack on the front of the device, the Turbo 2 might be the kind of classy, powerful Galaxy-alternative you’ve been looking for. And, it has some serious gaming chops too.

The Maxx 2’s biggest failing is that it starts with a measly 16GB of storage, which shouldn’t be the starting storage for any midrange smartphone. And although it can handle most tasks just fine, the phone’s processing power will leave some customers flat. But the phone’s price tag will make it attractive to plenty of shoppers looking for value.
If we were making holiday gift suggestions (and we will be soon), we’d recommend both the Droid Turbo 2 and the Maxx 2, but for different people. With its beefy hardware and high-resolution (and tough) display, the Turbo 2 is clearly the better choice for the enthusiast set in our audience. If you’re shopping for family, though, the Maxx 2 is a perfectly serviceable as well, and one that’s much easier on the wallet.
