Default New droid maxx colors

Ir seems that Verizon released two new colors for droid maxx , matte black and glossy red. But with a big difference they come with 16gb instead of 32gb

What do you guys think?

I think they had extra Ultra stock laying around and thought they could sell it better by sticking the Maxx battery in it.
Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.

Well, I already posted about this in another thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=51994561

But I think that Verizon isn't dumb. They know how many of the devices that they sell. They know that newer devices from HTC, Samsung and LG are probably selling well at the same relative price, so they can sell more Maxxes to people who might be more price-sensitive than looking for the latest and greatest devices, so they'll sell them at a lower price for the same great battery life with less storage. And, as I said in the other thread, at this point I'm only using 8 GB of storage anyway, so I could just barely scrape by with a 16 GB unit if that was the only choice that I had.

I do hope that they keep selling the current "black" 32 GB model, but I haven't been able to tell if this model was delisted or is just a third SKU with more storage and $100 higher price ($50 on contract.)

I was excited at first. Then discovered they cut the memory in half. And the red is glossy, no thanks.


Now if the unlock bootloader was available we may have upgraded another line to one of these. With a trade up ($100 vzw credit) and comcast promo ($150 visa, ends 4/31)of course.

Until 6/30 you can do mototradeup
Droid maxx correctly free through comcast with a $200 visa in 6-8 weeks

That's $270-$300 in free money

Not even including the $50 for isis, or the $50 a month you get back, or any of the other deals. I've gotten hundreds of dollars back quite easily.

Even have a $15 off $25 that can be redeemed anywhere you use your Amex or serve card!

Actually cut the storage in half from 32 GB to 16 GB. The memory is the same as it's always been

That said my 32 GB of storage is a hair short of half full which means if I had a 16 GB version, given the lack of a micro sd card slot, my storage would now be essentially full. So a 16 GB phone would not work for me. Its one of the reasons I went with the Maxx over the ultra to begin with.

That's what I meant.

And actually the droid ultra was remarked as using less storage since it only had 16 to begin with.

They do make micro usb flash drives at least.

Maybe some people could chime in with their actual available space?

It'd be over full, actually. Remember that the installed os takes up about the same 6.5 GB, so you'd be starting with about 9.5 GB free rather than 25.5. I'm using about 7.5 GB myself, but that's mostly because I'm testing two podcast apps and will eventually keep only one.
