"Makes a cool product cooler, yet missing the one thing"3.5 starson by Dexter1268
Pros: - Battery, duh...actually, this is probably the first time that word has made it into the Pros section EVER on a Verizon smartphone.
- Call quality.
- Nanocoating/Kevlar=awesome design features
- getting 4.0, the ROM is already out
Cons: - Come on...NO 720p resolution? Seriously? siiighh.
- Really, the 960x540 is the same as the X2...remember the X2? It's been a while, think hard. Having 226ppi instead of the Nexus/Rezound/LG's over 300 sucks.
- That's it, I just want 720p
Summary: With a good speaker, nice usable UI, future awesomeness of 4.0, a great battery, decent camera, amazing design, and tons of features, this should be an absolute contender for anyone needing a new phone....I say "need" because the people who just WANT one should wait until after MWC in February where the Tegra 3's get mentioned. With HTC saying they will release 1 "hero device" every quarter that means (hopefully) creating more future-proof devices. With Motorola signing with Intel one should probably wait to see what they come up with. And of course there's those phones from Sony that pack a mega camera, Bravia-sync, and True HD that are hopeful.
In short, if you have an Incredible (like me!), a Droid X, X2, or anything else that is still getting updates and still works just fine, it's lame to get anything right this second, especially with Spring releases right around the corner and so much hype for the summer...honestly, I'd wait.
But the Maxx is amazing...I still like the layout in the Nexus, the screen in the Spectrum, and the sound in the HTC more though, and lets face it, the next HTC phone will be 720p, have Beats, be slimmer, and have a great camera with 4.0...and be easier to root than Moto.
