Washington: We have seen some remarkable offer form Amazon and now it is offering the Verizon DORID MAXX for $49.99.

While most people view the Moto X as Motorola’s flagship smartphone, some may argue Verizon’s DROID MAXX really is. Motorola and Verizon formed a bond when AT&T was the only carrier to offer the iPhone, which meant that Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile would have to serve up a worthy competitor or risk customers jumping ship.

Verizon and Motorola partnered on what would be the carrier’s response to the iPhone, with the Motorola DROID. The smartphone had a 3.7-inch display and slide-out QWERTY keyboard and it was one of the first Android smartphones that rivaled the iPhone if you were a Verizon customer.

Verizon has kept its exclusive Motorola-built DROID family in its smartphone lineup and the latest DROID MAXX is a very impressive device. The Verizon DROID MAXX is extremely light and thin and its body is wrapped in a DuPont Kevlar fiber unibody case that not only provides a cool look and feel, but also protects the smartphone from scratches and scrapes.

The DROID MAXX has another impressive feature that is implied by its name. The smartphone ships with a very large 3,500 mAh battery, which provides up to an astonishing 48 hours of usage. These are just some of the Verizon DROID MAXX’s top features.

The DROID MAXX features a crisp and bright 5-inch Super AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720. The smartphone ships with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed. It is powered by Motorola’s X8 Mobile Computing System, which uses a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, a quad-core graphics processing unit (GPU), and 2GB of RAM to ensure a fast and fluid user interface.

It ships with 32GB of internal storage and its camera capabilities include a 10-megapixel rear camera with 1080p HD recording, as well as a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat. Its wireless connectivity options include a 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, and wireless charging capabilities out of the box – no need to purchase an extra back cover to gain this feature (you will need to use a compatible charging pad though).

You can get the Verizon DROID MAXX on sale from Amazon for $49.99, which allows for significant savings over the $199.99 Verizon charges online and in its retail stores for the same smartphone. You will have to sign a 2-year contract and the offer includes free two-day shipping.
