The DROID MAXX 2 may not be the headliner of the two new DROIDs, but it shouldn’t be overlooked. This phone, like its distant cousin, the Moto X Play, is a well-equipped phone but with an even better price that is a heck of a value.
At just $16 per month ($384 full retail), you get a 5.5-inch FHD (1080p) display, 21MP camera, 2GB RAM, 3630mAh battery, 16GB storage with SD card support, 4G LTE, and a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor. Seriously, that’s a pretty decent set of specs for a phone that still drops in under $400. Then again, the Moto X Pure tops it in most areas and is only $15 more. The Nexus 5X is also on-par in many areas, yet starts at just $379.
The phone will go up for purchase on October 29 at Verizon.
