Like the Droids before it, the Maxx's back is coated in a soft-touch but tough Kevlar fiber surface. Also here is the phone's main 10MP camera.

The Motorola Droid Maxx only has physical controls on its right side, a volume bar plus a power key. Both are conveniently cross-hatched for extra texture.

On the bottom lip of the Motorola Droid Maxx is its micro USB port, right where it aught to be.

The Maxx features a large speaker on the back which gets pretty darn loud, louder than the HTC One's BoomSound external audio system.

The Motorola Droid Maxx's big size makes it a lot of smartphone to hold. Thankfully its Kevlar fiber coating offers a secure grip.
