Motorola Droid Ultra

Motorola Droid Ultra Information:

The Motorola Droid line launched exclusively on Verizon's vast network back in 2009 and really helped make Android a household word.  The latest crop was just released in August 2013 - Droid Mini, Droid Maxx and Droid Ultra - just before their original Moto X and they share many features.  The mini speaks for itself, the Maxx has a huge 3500 mAh battery and the Ultra is designed to be thin...only 7.2mm - but it has a good build to it and does not feel like it would snap like a cracker.

The Motorola Droid Ultra has a 5-inch HD AMOLED display, which means it has a resolution of 12080 x 720 pixels and 294 pixels-per-inch (PPI).  It uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro - a dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, but configured by Motorola and called a Motorola X8.  This is hooked up to 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage with no microSD card for expansion.  This combination gives a fast and smooth operation at all times...Motorola calls it optimizing the hardware and software.

For photos, the main shooter is a 10MP ClearPixel with auto focus and LED Flash.  The secondary camera or front-facing camera is 2MP for video chatting and selfies.  Powering the entire smartphone is a 2130mAh battery that will last you all day.  All of this comes in a device measuring 137.5 x 71.2 x 7.2mm and weighing in at 137 grams.  It has been upgraded to Android 4.4.4 KitKat with an almost pure vanilla form, however, it does have some great Motorola features - Active Display, Touchless Control and Droid Zap...and of course, all of the bloat that Verizon can squeeze in.

Motorola Droid Ultra Editor Rating:

The Motorola Droid Ultra is a thin device that delivers the goods - the AMOLED display looks great for 720p, the Motorola X8 processor and 2GB or RAM are more than enough all the Ultra to fly through its day-to-day tasks, and the relatively small 2130mAh battery will last you all day, yet allows the device to be only 7.2mm thick.  The cameras will take a decent picture and the almost pure Android will guarantee the fastest updates available on Verizon, and the Motorola software really adds many great features.  The price of $199 on a two-year plan is not bad for this type of smartphone.
