Verizon Droid

This past Tuesday Verizon launched its latest Droid phones–The Droid Maxx, Droid Ultra and Droid Mini. All of the smartphones are noticeably thin, lightweight and feature a reasonably sized screen that’s easy on the eyes.

Verizon Droid Maxx by Motorola, retails for $299.

                                                                    Highlighted Droid Maxx Features:

  • Maximum Battery Life of 2 Days
  • Automatic touch camera feature that takes one or multiple shots with the flip of a wrist for a quick capture
  • 32 GB of Storage

Verizon Droid Ultra by Motorola, retails for $199.

Highlighted Droid Ultra Features:

  • Full Day Battery Life
  • Same automatic feature that takes one or multiple photo shots with the flip of a wrist for a quick photo capture

Verizon Droid Mini by Motorola, retails for $99.

Highlighted Droid Mini features:

  • Overall size of the device similar to that of that of the iPhone
  • 4.3″ Display Screen
  • 16GB of Storage

Each of the Droids feature voice activation, touchless control and “Droid Zap” technology which allows content like the sharing of photos to be “zapped” into the air. I had the chance to play around with the Droid phones and the “Zap” capability was probably my favorite feature. With the swipe of a finger, you’re able to send a photo or other content “up into the air” for multiple people to receive or you can make your zapped content private which includes a password for maximum protection.

In the midst of the back to school season, smartphones are definitely a necessity; whether it’s being used for research, connecting with others or just planning the day.

Will you be purchasing the Droid for your back to school tech needs?
