    Ninja'd! I was just getting ready to post this. My wife has the 5S so I can see it side by side, day by day EVERYDAY. There is no comparison. The Maxx beats her 5S on each and every front ASIDE from still photos.

    Maxx FTW!:D

    Hey, you remember when the Droids were announced and EVERYONE criticized them for being "last year's" technology at a premium price? Remember when everyone said things like, don't waste your time. Don't waste your money?

    I do.

    Again I say, Maxx FTW.

    If you actually read the two reviews, the Droid Maxx gets a 78, the iPhone 5s gets a 78. So, they are tied. The iPhone 5c gets a 77. (The Ultra gets 76, the Mini 75)

    The actual headline is

    The Droid Maxx gets dinged by CR for voice quality. They say that what you say is well heard, but listening is only fair. The iPhones get dinged for battery life (only average) and "YouTube app not installed", which is a ludicrous thing to judge a smartphone on, IMO.

    I can say that the voice quality is no worse (and I believe better) than my S3. Sometimes it sounded like the other guy was talking to me through water on that phone.

    Even though the Maxx and 5s tied, they did say that the better battery life, larger screen, touchless control, and active notifications gave the Droids the edge. I don't understand how that doesn't show in the ratings, unless they only rate phones by build, voice quality, reception, etc. & those features are not included in the ratings.

    Ear placement is very particular on the Maxx. If you have a problem hearing the other party try moving the receiver around on your ear. It is likely that it will change a lot.

    I've always had good call quality on my Mini. I sounds better than any phone I've had. I do wish I had the larger battery, but otherwise I'm loving it. At any rate, I love it. It's so fast and smooth. It just works so great.
