Droid Ultra by Motorola (Verizon Wireless)

PC Magazine
9 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The Droid Ultra works fine, but it's the weakest entrant in the recent litter of Motorola phones. More appealing options abound.
  • Pros: Fast performance. Touchless control and swivel-to-launch camera are really neat.
  • Cons: Slick, unpleasant feel. Low-resolution screen for a 5-inch panel. Unnecessary pre-loads and branding.

Motorola Droid Ultra

29 August 2013
  • Conclusion: It's funny that the Moto X overshadows Verizon and Motorola's latest Droid for 2013. They share quite a bit of DNA including processing architecture, Moto's wonderful Touchless Control and Active Notifications, AMOLED 720p display technology and a 10MP rear camera with RGBC sensor. But the Moto X wins us over with its overarching focus on usability.
  • Pros: Great new user-centric features like active notifications and always-listening voice command software.
  • Cons: Slippery, glossy finish doesn't do justice to the Kevlar underneath. Battery life just OK.

  • Summary: The HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, and iPhone 5 made me believe that the days of phone manufacturers kow-towing to the whims of carriers were over. Those devices represent the beliefs of their makers, and are offered to users with only a few Verizon-induced blemishes. The Droid Ultra, on the other hand, appears to have been designed by a committee so large it was bled of every one of its assets.
  • Pros: Lots of useful additions to Android, Solid call quality, Lots of useful additions to Android, Solid call quality, Excellent battery life
