It's time to upgrade from my Droid X, which I've really loved but who's battery now lasts approximately 45 minutes if I use the phone at all. I have to leave it plugged into a charger all day and carry a portable charger with me just in case.
The Maxx HD looks like a great choice all around except for the camera quality, which has been panned badly on CNET. My question, is it about the same as the Droid X, better, or worse?
If it's worse, it would definitely be a deal breaker. I use my phone a lot for pictures just because it's convenient. I think the outdoor pictures come out really well but most indoor low-light/flash pictures are pretty grainy.
I definitely want to stay with Android so if the camera is an issue, would something else be a better choice?
Also what is the difference between the Maxx and Maxx HD except for a slightly longer battery life in the latter? I had read that the screen breaks easily on the Maxx -- does the Maxx HD have the same issue?
Well, i just took a look at the earlier thread where people had posted pictures. The indoor shots are not the best, but they are definitely no worse than the Droid X pictures -- probably better, but without a side-by-side comparison of the same scene it's hard to tell.
I also read about some of the other phones, such as the HTC DNA. Although people seemed to love the camera on that one, it really doesn't seem to compare to the Maxx HD in other areas.
Looks like I'll be going with this one.
