Amazon Offering the Motorola DROID Ultra and Mini for $0.01 on Contract, and DROID Maxx for $69.99 on Contract

Amazon always seems to have some great deals for everyone. They often discount great flagship phones to real cheap prices just months after they are released. That doesn’t mean the phone is a crappy phone, it just means they are going to sell more now. On Sunday, Amazon discounted the price of three Verizon phones. All of them are DROIDs, so of course they are all also Motorola phones.

Amazon is currently offering the Motorola DROID Ultra for $0.01 on a new 2-year contract, the DROID Mini for $0.01 also on a 2-year contract and the beastly DROID Maxx for $69.99 on a new 2-year contract. These are some great prices because Verizon is currently offering the DROID Mini for $49, DROID Ultra for $99, and the DROID Maxx for $199. So some deep discounting here. All three of these phones are relatively the same spec-wise except for the DROID Mini having a smaller battery and a 4.3-inch display while the DROID Ultra and Maxx have a 4.7-inch display, and the DROID Maxx has a 3500mAh battery that can last 48 hours on LTE. That’s some crazy battery life there.

Here are the specs for all three phones:

  • Snapdragon S4 Pro dual-core, with Motorola’s X8 Mobile Computing system
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB of storage (32GB on the DROID Maxx), with no microSD card slot
  • Android 4.2.2

The specs aren’t the best you’ll see on the market, but as I said in my review of the DROID Ultra and DROID Maxx, they don’t need the best specs to run smoothly. I’ve loved my time with both of those phones and would definitely recommend them to anyone. Only thing, I wish Motorola would release a phone like the DROID Maxx on all carriers instead of just Verizon. I’d love to get one on T-Mobile or even AT&T. I don’t know about the rest of you out there.
