Motorola Droid Ultra review

 

How does the Droid Ultra stack up against its competition?

Nice 5-inch screen ; Very light and thin ; Excellent battery life ; Touchless Control works well ; Snappy overall performance

Large for most pockets ; Glossy finish attracts fingerprints ; Camera performance is very poor

Great workhorse of a smartphone, but camera needs software improvements

Motorola Droid Ultra review

 

The Droid Ultra's $199.99 price and even its very existence baffles me. Standing smack dab in between the affordable $99.99 Droid Mini and pricey $299.99 Droid Maxx , the only reason to choose the Ultra is either because you value trimness above all...

The superthin Motorola Droid Ultra has a lovely, large screen and takes pleasing pictures. The phone also has long battery life and offers slick tricks such as advanced voice commands and screen-based notifications.

The Motorola Droid Ultra’s chassis feels slippery, collects prints and smudges easily, and isn’t comfortable to hold. The phone has just 16GB of internal storage and no SD card slot.

Unless you want the thinnest smartphone on the block, the more powerful HTC One and Droid Maxx are better buys.

Motorola Droid Ultra review: a phone that doesn't need to exist

 

After roughly nine months of almost complete radio silence, Google-owned Motorola suddenly sprang into action by announcing four devices in the space of

Solid performance for a mid-range phone ; Great firmware and useful features ; Impressive battery life

Priced too high ; Fingerprint magnet ; Feels redundant on Verizon's lineup

The Motorola Droid Ultra is a good phone, but it's a mid-range device that's priced too high and doesn't offer any benefits that you won't already find on the Moto X.

Motorola Droid Ultra

 

The Droid Ultra boasts a slim and sturdy design along with handy voice controls, but its camera and battery life could be better.

Ultra-thin design; Bright vibrant display; Loud robust sounding speakers; Slick interface with easy to use features

Below-average battery life; Photos sometimes hazy; Lacks 1080p display

The Motorola Droid Ultra is a new breed of Droid because it focuses less on speeds and feeds and more on the user experience. For the most part, that's a good thing. Being able to voice control your phone without touching it doesn't just feel cutting...

Motorola DROID Ultra Review

 

The best way to think of the Motorola DROID Ultra is an incremental update of the DROID RAZR HD. Needless to say, the Motorola DROID Ultra has plenty of competition, mostly from the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, and LG G2 – all of which are top-tier...

Good build quality using Kevlar construction ; Close to stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with exclusive Motorola apps ; Excellent call quality

Glossy back is a fingerprint magnet ; No expandable storage

Coming in at $199.99 with a 2-year contract, the DROID Ultra has a lot to offer, especially if you are looking for a device running as close to stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean as possible, while still offering some extra “Motorola perks” such as the...

Motorola Droid Ultra Review

 

The Motorola Droid Ultra is an adequate Android phone, but it doesn't excel at anything in particular. Its processor isn't unusably slow, nor will its camera take poor pictures. It looks beautiful, but in terms of its performance and overall...

If you're a fan of the technological look and feel of Droid phones, the Ultra won't disappoint.

The term mediocre defines much of the Ultra's build, from its average screen to its unimpressive processor.

The Motorola Droid Ultra is a middle-of-the-road Android phone with too little going for it to make it worth your dollar.

Motorola Droid Ultra Review

 

Moto's Droid Ultra is Verizon's latest flagship, and virtually identical to the vaunted Moto X. It's a bit bigger, however, with a 5-inch display. So, what's so great?

Nice design ; Fast and stable operation ; Camera quick access is superb

Glossy build, a fingerprint and smudge magnet ; Too much Verizon bloatware ; No microSD or user-accessible battery

The Motorola Droid Ultra is a good phone, bottom line. It’s fast, stable, and sports excellent software with fun features. It’s also wonderfully designed, with only its glossy build providing pause for consideration. However, the smudge fingerprint...
