Review: Motorola Droid Ultra for Verizon Wireless

Form Performance Basics Moto Apps Extras Wrap-up Comments  1  

The Motorola Droid Ultra is a good effort that gets solid marks on most of the basics. There are few phones that offer as thin a profile and as large a screen as the Ultra. The device locks onto Verizon's network well, and offers great voice performance. I wish battery life were a bit better, but it still manages to get through most of a solid working day. It's a bummer that the battery cannot be accessed, and that the Ultra doesn't support expandable memory.

The Ultra's software is close to stock Android, which many will appreciate. The extras tossed in by Motorola, such as Active Display and Touchless Control, help give the Ultra its own personality and may change how you interact with your phone. I only wish the camera -- and the camera software -- performed better.

The Droid Ultra carries the same price as competing models from HTC, Samsung, and Apple. I'd recommend it to people who are fans of Motorola, Google, and what they're trying to do with software.
