Motorola Droid Ultra Specifications and Review

Motorola Droid Ultra Specifications and Review  - The Droid Ultra's $199.99 price and even its extremely presence confuses me. Standing smack touch in the middle of the reasonable $99.99 Droid Mini and pricey $299.99 Droid Maxx , the main motivation to pick the Ultra is either in light of the fact that you esteem trimness most importantly else, or couldn't care less to use $100 more for the Maxx's huge battery and 32gb of capacity. The Ultra's constrained 16gb of inward memory likewise makes it less alluring than different superphones, for example, the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4.

Up until the Droid Ultra arrived around my work area, my latest portable sidekick was the minimized Moto X. Also since I've ended up usual to its petite form, when I initially grabbed the Ultra I was instantly struck by its substantial, wide edge.

An alternate design spoiler is that the telephone feels absolute dangerous, just about like a bar of wet cleanser - not precisely a quality I look for in a cell phone. Motorola does assert that the Ultra uses Kevlar unibody development for more noteworthy quality so assuredly it'll survive If you drop the gadget coincidentally.


Without a doubt the Droid Ultra's star fascination is its huge, splendid 5-inch HD OLED screen. With a 720p determination (1,280x720 pixels) it may not brag the same measure of pixels as its rival, to be specific the HTC One (4.7-inch, 1080p LCD) and Samsung Galaxy S4 (5-creep, 1080p OLED). Indeed in this way, the Ultra's high-differentiation presentation produces dynamic colors that pop and profound, dim dark levels.

I sincerely didn't recognize any nonattendant detail in photographs, Web destinations, or content overwhelming reports. I additionally delighted in survey my commonplace decisions for versatile stimulation on the gadget, an overflowing measure of Netflix films sprinkled with the odd HD Youtube trailer. Incidentally, that new "Riddick" flick looks powerful enticing.

Core segments 

As far as inner hardware, Motorola has made an extremely flighty move with its 2013 cell phone lineup. As opposed to participating in the merciless processor weapons contest like for all intents and purpose each other handset creator, the organization chose to evade the issue totally. All the new Droids, including the Droid Ultra, are controlled by a homegrown transforming arrangement Motorola calls the X8 Mobile Computing System.

The same silicon motor pushing the new Motorola leader along (the Moto X) at its heart, the X8 is a double center 1.7ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU. It doesn't have the crude drive of the genuine quad-center processors ticking inside the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 (Snapdragon 600).

What the X8 needs in muscle, it compensates for by being effective. The principle double center application CPU is upheld by bulky quad-center Adreno representation, in addition to two extra "centers": a characteristic dialect processor and one for logical figuring.


Motorola took a comparably light-gave approach with the Droid Ultra's product as it did with the Moto X. Running the same Android working framework (form 4.2.2), the Ultra's OS is basically stock Jelly Bean. That is reasonable given Motorola's late procurement by Google, the engineering wizards behind Android.

You slide a latch symbol outside of a virtual ring on the telephone's screen to open the gadget. With that fulfilled you're welcomed to the focal home screen in addition to four different boards to populate with application easy routes and gadgets as you see fit.

Motorola figured out how to clutch the Circles settings gadget, put at the middle of the principle home screen, a remaining from the organization's past Droid Razr handsets. Beside offering speedy access to time, climate, and framework settings, the instrument parades a couple of new traps.


I know some cell phone enthusiasts will question the force of Motorola's X8 stage. I can affirm that they won't have much to fear. The Droid Ultra felt agile, vivacious, and amazingly responsive in my time with it. Applications opened quickly, and settings menu and home screen route were rich smooth.

Benchmark tests reverberated my average execution involvement with the Droid Ultra, scoring a satisfyingly high Quadrant score of 9,056. Without a doubt, that is not exactly as noteworthy as the numbers turned in by the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4, however I'm still sure that the Ultra's rate ought to demonstrate sufficiently quick to handle your portable processing needs.


Motorola handset cams have had an especially frightful history of frustrating me. The past few eras of Droid Razrs snapped photographs gradually and needed numerous imperative shooting modes found on Samsung and HTC gadgets.

Outfitted with a totally patched up cam application and 10mp sensor, the Droid Ultra has made incredible strides in the right course. Indoor shots of my studio still life were fresh, had exact colors, and were decently uncovered.

Outside in the splendid summer sun, the tones of blossoms and other foliage were dynamic and subtle elements were sharp. Obviously I did recognize that the telephone's self-adjust wasn't as jackrabbit brisk as say the HTC One's or the Galaxy S4's. Shot-to-shot time on those devices is basically moment, though the Ultra took about a large portion of a second.
