Quad-core or octa-core processors, massive Full HD panels and OIS cameras are groundbreaking and all, but I’m pretty certain there are tech-savvy individuals among you that care a whole lot more about another tidbit when deciding what smartphone to purchase: battery life.
It’s true, most high-end slabs of silicon nowadays have their tickers kick the bucket once every 12, 16 or at best 20 hours of continuous use. Meaning they need to be plugged in two, three, maybe four times a week.
Heck, at some point, it’s going to seem like you don’t actually own a mobile device. The worst part is you can’t do anything about it. With most top-shelf handhelds, that is.
What you can do is snub most high-enders and instead go for Verizon’s Motorola Droid Maxx. Do it today and you’ll get a pretty awesome bargain. Via Amazon, as Big Red continues to charge a preposterous $199.99 with two-year contracts.
Meanwhile, if you agree to pen a new carrier agreement and choose to do business with Amazon, poof, close to 180 bucks will be shaved off the 5-incher’s price tag. And so you’ll only have to cough up $12.49. Upgrading customers don’t get the exact same deal, yet they can score a decent discount as well, needing to drop $99.99 for the phone.
Now, how much better autonomy does the Droid Maxx offer? Let me run a number by you. 48. That’s how many hours the big guy holds its own between charges in talk time. Translation for day-to-day use? Five, six, maybe seven full days. That’s more like it, huh?
