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 magnetism is easily remedied with a case, which will unfortunately also hide its excellent shape.
Its display may not match up with the iPhone 5S and Galaxy S4 pixel for pixel, but it still looks great, and it’s doubtful users would even notice any differences viewed from a reasonable distance. It’s not as bright as it should be, but that’s only an issue when the sun glares overhead, and that a problem that affects just about all smartphones and tablets.
The Droid Ultra camera may not match up to the best of the best, but it’s still good enough to function as a viable point-and-shoot camera alternative (though, we wouldn’t ditch the Cannon just yet).
It’s not hard to recommend the Droid Ultra, but given that it’s so similar to the Mini, Maxx, and Moto X, users may want to check out those models before settling.
