The "1-Minute" Review
The DROID Ultra is one of the latest offerings from Motorola. It’s peppy dual-core processor and 5-inch AMOLED display offer plenty of power and beautiful visuals. However, there is one potential problem. Brad Molen of Engadget summed it up best when he said “...we simply can't think of a reason why the Ultra should co-exist with the X at the exact same price.”
Much like the Moto X, the DROID Ultra is solid, fast, takes respectable pictures, supports the latest technologies and has a bountiful battery life. This is largely because it has almost identical hardware apart from slightly larger screen and a different shell. For a slightly larger investment, the DROID MAXX offers all of this plus more storage and wireless charging.
The DROID Ultra is, in both pricing and features, a mid-tier phone. Is this a problem? Depends on your use for the phone. However, Cory Gunther of Android Community sums things up nicely in his review, stating “Yes we’ll see 8-core phones soon, but that’s overkill, to be honest, and this DROID Ultra will have enough power to make 99% of consumers plenty happy. Nuff said.”
The Good: Minimal interface changes from stock Android, all-day battery life, comfortable grip and a large screen.
The Bad: Prone to fingerprints and grime, no microSD support, lack of camera options and poor visibility in direct lighting.
