If you’re looking to switch over to Verizon, you’re not going to find a better deal than this. The Motorola DROID Maxx is on sale for $12.49 for new customers. That’s a great deal for this phone. The DROID Maxx is an amazing phone (I really dislike that it’s a Verizon exclusive though). It’s basically the Moto X, but a tad bigger, with capacitive buttons, a kevlar back and a huge battery. When I say huge, I mean a 3500mAh battery inside the DROID Maxx. I reviewed the DROID Maxx earlier this year and I loved it, specifically for the battery. But then again, I am using a Moto X as my daily driver right now, so that could also be why.

The Moto X does have a 5-inch 720p AMOLED display which is used for Active Display, but it’s really not that bad. Sure the display on the HTC One and the Galaxy S4 is better, but battery life is way better on the DROID Maxx. It is running Android 4.2.2, but Motorola is working on the update to Android 4.4, since the Moto X already has the update, it shouldn’t take too long. This is a phone that is about $199 on contract from Verizon,so this is a great price here.

The DROID Maxx is the only phone I’d recommend to people on Verizon. The reason being, we all love phones that last forever, and the DROID Maxx is one of them. Additionally there’s the Active Display and Touchless Control which I simply love on the Moto X, DROID Ultra and DROID Maxx. Both of those features are amazing. It’s also running pretty much stock Android. Which means there’s not a whole lot of bloat, aside from Verizon’s bloat, on the device, and it’ll make it easier for Motorola to update the DROID Maxx when Google pushes out a new version of Android. Sounds good right? Well then head to the link below and grab a DROID Maxx. If you’re a current customer it’ll cost you $100, and $70 to add a new line. That’s still more than half off compared to Verizon’s website.
