Motorola has always been among the premier handset makers around, although none of its impact was made on the Indian smartphone market until a big 2013. That was the year when the term 'budget smartphone' was coined, riding mostly on the likes of the massively popular Moto G and Moto E.
While both the Motos mentioned above, alongside the somewhat popular Moto X, did decent business in India (partly thanks to Flipkart), it now seems like the smartphone maker is all set to introduce another smartphone into the mix in the form of Moto Maxx, also known as Moto Droid Turbo.
The enthusiasm in this regard from Motorola is only justified. Since 2013, based on just two primary budget handsets in the market, the company has reaped gold. Helped along the way by Flipkart's exclusivity deals on the smartphones, Motorola is aiming at something similar with the Moto Maxx.
But what makes us think that the Moto Maxx will click with the company's Indian customers, like it did for Moto G and Moto E? Well, there are a few reasons involved since all these smartphones tread, more or less, in the same direction. And the Moto Maxx can only leverage the company in the market.
Moto Maxx is Moto X Pushed to the Extreme
There's no rocket science involved in understanding the above statement. It is what it is. The Moto Maxx is actually an overshot version of the regular Moto X. The handset has a faster processor, a higher-resolution screen, a higher-resolution camera, and most importantly, a much larger battery. On paper, in a nutshell, the Droid Turbo is everything the Moto X is, but bigger, faster and longer-lasting.
Flipkart Up for the Job Once More
Over the last two years, Motorola and Flipkart have grown a sort of relationship that now sees Moto handsets being sold exclusively via one of India's premier online shopping portals. The deal worked out perfectly when it sold the Moto G, Moto E and Moto X almost immediately. With Moto Maxx, the planning is something similar with both the companies ready to test the market one more time.
The Biggest Camera Among All the Motos
While everything depends on how judiciously Motorola will price the Moto Maxx in India, it has to be said that the handset does offer the best and the biggest camera among all other Moto handsets in the market. To be precise, the Moto Maxx comes with a 21 MP rear primary camera with 5248 x 3936 pixel support, autofocus and dual-LED flash. The camera supports 4K video capture and better low-light support thanks to f2.0 aperture.
You Have Never Seen the Ballistic Nylon Texture
For those of you concerned about the smartphone's looks and build quality, note that the Motorola Moto Maxx comes fitted with premium ballistic nylon that not only offers a fine texture but also remains lightweight and feels great in one's hands, apart from offering great durability. There's also a water-repellent nanocoating that protects the phone from the inside out.
Upgraded Moto Experience
For starters, there's now an advanced noise cancellation technology that helps eliminate background noise, improving both call quality and voice recognition, making conversation come through loud and clear. Also the phone can interact more naturally and learn your preferences to anticipate what you need. You just need to speak to ask questions or get things done.
A 3900mAh Battery is Bigger than You Think
If there was one real reason for most people to consider the Turbo over the X, it would be for its giant battery. The Turbo has a 3,900mAh cell, and is probably one of the largest you will ever see and certainly the biggest among phones in the same size class. Further, Motorola claims that the handset is capable of delivering up to 48 hours of battery life on mixed usage. But whatever the numbers measure up to, rest assured that you won't run out of juice that easily.
