Want to eschew giants Apple and Samsung? The Motorola Droid Maxx is a solid choice that offers nearly 10 hours of battery life and speedy performance in an unassuming sleek black package. Its 5-inch, 1280 x 720p Super AMOLED screen may trail competitors in resolution, but delivers the brightest, most vibrant colors we've seen on any smartphone thanks to its RGB sub-pixel structure. This Android Jelly Bean device also packs touchless voice controls that let you operate the device hands-free. Get the Droid Maxx for $199 with a two-year contract or 24 monthly payments of $20.90.
