Could It Be? The Droid Maxx Claims a 48-Hour Battery Life

Jul 23 2013 - 1:12pm

How long does your smartphone last? A half day, maybe? Mobile battery technology is improving slowly but surely, and Motorola [1]'s Maxx line continues to set the bar with its latest Verizon exclusive, the 3500 mAH-powered Droid Maxx [2]. The 4G LTE-capable Android phone supposedly provides up to 48 hours of usage or 25 days of standby time.

Motorola hasn't released all the specs for the five-inch Droid Maxx yet, but this is what we know so far:

The Maxx will cost $700 for month to month and $300 with a two-year contract, and preorders [3] will ship by Aug. 20.

At today's event in New York City, Verizon made two more announcements [4]: the Droid Mini [5] ($500 month to month, $100 with two-year contract), a 4.3-inch, wireless-charging-enabled device, and the superslim, 7.18mm Droid Ultra [6] ($600 month to month, $200 with two-year contract, ships Aug. 29).
