Motorola DROID Ultra Specs



The Motorola Droid Ultra comes with a 5-inch HD display. The device is both thinner and more durable than earlier devices thanks to a new unibody kevlar construction. Thickness comes at the slim 7.18mm making this the thinnest 4G LTE phone out there. A brand new dual-core X8 Mobile Computing system is powering the device allowing exciting new features like ‘Touchless control’ that has your phone listening to you at all times, something we saw on the Moto X leaks. There's also the 'active display' technology that only lights up a part of the screen to conserve battery. Technically, a dual-core processor is what's under the hood, don't get fooled by the '8-core' talk in the event. The Droid Ultra features an f/2.4 10-megapixel camera and chances are this is the same unit we'll see on the Motorola Moto X.

This device is also known as Motorola XT-1080

Realmente impresionante
Phone owned for less than a year

Este celular destaca por su diseño muy sofisticado, definitivamente es una joya de arte para quien quiere distinguirse. El acabado brillante es hermoso, aunque hay que limpiarlo con frecuencia para lucirlo a los demás. En cuanto al rendimiento, todas las funciones van como deben ser, y funciona como realmente quiero que funcione: nunca falló nada, super rápido y fluido más que todo con la última actualización de KitKat 4.4.4. Su chipset Motorola X8 está por demás decir que optimiza el funcionamiento del celular, por encima de un quad-core, demostrando que no es el número de procesadores u otras ridiculeces lo que importa, sino centrarse en la experiencia del usuario y optimizarla con una fórmula perfecta. El almacenamiento de 16GB puede llegar a ser limitado, y confieso que alguna vez quise cargar toda la biblioteca multimedia, pero es suficiente para el funcionamiento correcto.

Good quality with some audio quaility issues
Phone owned for less than 3 months

So far the phone has been great. Not much problems showing with this device like I did when I had the Razr 16GB prior. I enjoy the quality of the device, the Kevlar isn't bad and it is very nice in the hands. Maybe it is a bigger screen but it is good for not forgetting that I got the device with me.

The case of a Razr 16GB sometimes fits it depending upon the model and the manufactorer but they have a lot of options. The battery lasts a good 8 hours with a full charge and using it in moderation but with a power use it can go from about 6 to 8 hours, so the charger is needed but sometimes I can squeeze in a whole day if done correctly.

The audio doesn't really live all up to what you expect, on speakerphone it still does not gives me the best of the quality that I would expect to get for my device. That is the only thing that is not really my cup of tea with it right now.
