Recently, Apple released their new mobile handsets which are the iPhone 5C and 5S. The proud company is boasting the new updates that they incorporated into these new gadgets and saying that this is doubtlessly the best Apple mobile phone yet. It is set to rival some previously released smartphones such as the Droid Maxx by Motorola which is considered to be one of Verizon’s premium treasures. According to the latest reports, it has combined features that impressively have not been seen to any smartphone before. The following review has more information about this.
Plastic, Pixels and Perfection
The Apple iPhone 5C looks simple yet very elegant and attractive. It has a polycarbonate body material and is available in five pastel colors which unquestionably caters younger audiences. The front remains black but it is protected by a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating. Most hands-on reviews are saying that it is actually very comfortable to hold given its smooth and candy coated surface. In terms of its features, this device still holds the crown for showcasing the most accurate screen technology courtesy of the Retina display. It has a pixel density of an incredible 326 ppi although it seems that Apple could have maximized the use of these numbers by using a much larger display. The Droid Maxx has a screen size of 5 inches while this device only has 4. On the other hand, the features that are greatly being praised by most experts in this handset include the wider LTE coverage that its predecessor doesn’t have, upgraded secondary camera as well as longer battery life.
Calling All Mobile Photographers
The Motorola Droid Maxx is a heavier handset than its rival, but it comes with some advantages. This handset has Kevlar fiber shells which are soft to hold, smooth to touch and do not accumulate fingerprints. The back has a patterned design which adds an aesthetic feel to it even though it only comes in black. It is also being applauded because of its larger screen size and higher pixel resolution. Most importantly, this mobile handset highlights its camera feature which can snap superb images at 10 megapixels. Not only that, it also has the ability to respond to voice commands and give screen notifications. If the users need it, they can also use the Quick Capture which lets them fire the camera alive even if the mobile phone is in sleep mode. Just twist it twice in your hand and that should do the trick. On the other hand, this specification works appropriately with the handset’s ability to display colors with saturated quality and impeccable levels of darkness. When users are watching videos or just simply browsing the internet, the images still look sharp while the texts look completely defined. This makes it friendly and safe for the eyes of the user.
Drawbacks and Hitches
Although the Retina display is one of the best display technology that the world has ever seen, it seems that the Apple iPhone 5C could have upgraded the four-inch screen size into something bigger. Android phones are catching up on this development and, whether we like it or not, that’s exactly what happened in this comparative review against the Droid Maxx. Although, the one thing that compromises it is the fact that is still an affordable mobile unit.
On the other hand, the Motorola Droid Maxx is a competitive mobile phone with hardly any technical blemishes. But if there is one, it would be the design and physical build of the handset. Apparently, not all people are convinced about the chunkiness – because of the Kevlar shell – that comes with this product. Although let’s face it, this is not necessarily a deal breaker hitch given its other features.
The Bottom Line
The Apple iPhone 5C has a starting price of $199 which can still increase and reach more than $500 (tied up with mobile carriers). Alternatively, the Motorola Droid Maxx also has a similar starting price but can reach $700 at the maximum. However, the consumers must know that this price range generally depends on their choice of storage sizes and mobile carrier.
It’s obvious that these two premium gadgets exhibit their own premium features. If you can afford Motorola’s price tag, it won’t hurt to buy the Droid Maxx handset. It has specifications which can definitely attract gadget lovers’ eyes. On the other hand, the iPhone 5C is a similar premium handset which also showcases credible features of its own. It adds as a bonus that it can be bought at a more affordable price than its rival.
Generally, choosing between these two devices is only a matter of deciding which handset the consumer wants and can afford. These smartphones are only two of the best and latest in the market. Whichever you choose will be a worthy investment of your money. Do you agree?
