Several display models also had severe image burn in. I know Samsung tosses the Super AMOLED displays to Motorola, but it's clear they get the second rate ones. Once again, the average consumer isn't that picky and would likely not notice these things. The phone I'm using now does not have the banding issue, but the digitizer lines are quite noticeable in many lights.
Again, I'm biased because I've used the Galaxy S4 but the camera on the MAXX is really bad. Rumor is a software update is coming to correct the issue but in it's current state, it's not up to par with any other high end phone. Motorola phones have always had inferior cameras, and sadly I can't say much has improved here.
That's interesting. All of the Samsung phones I've tested at two best buys and three verizon stores had severe burn in. None of the droid maxx or ultra models did. Now this could be attributed to newness of the droids. Either way a s4 shouldn't have burn in this soon. Never noticed banding on any phone since my galaxy nexus.
The camera is not the best but I'm satisfied. I find that focal does a decent job of rendering more difficult shots. Here's a few photos from my maxx.
