Motorola DROID Ultra vs Motorola Moto X
Equally, the Motorola DROID Ultra and Moto X do well in the area, as voices sound realistic and natural on both ends of the conversation, without having the typical “choppy cell phone” effect, though earpiece volume on our end was lacking, as we had to turn it up almost all the way. Signal reception was pretty equal as well, with -96dBm for voice and -99dBm for 4G LTE.
Since the DROID Ultra is thinnest of the two, it is equipped with a 2130mAh battery, while the thicker Moto X has a slightly higher capacity 2200mAh battery. During our testing, we were able to get 14 hours of continuous talk time with the DORID Ultra, while the Moto X got close to 15 hours. But for daily mixed usage, both devices would only last about1.5 days before requiring a charge. Also, keep in mind that they have an internal battery, so you don’t have the option of popping in a spare battery in case you need it.
So which is the better smartphone if you’re looking to spend $200 on-contract, the Motorola DROID Ultra or the Motorola Moto X? When it comes right down to it, they are equal in many respects, such as the software features, processing performance, internal storage, camera, and call quality. Even though the DROID Ultra is made out of Kevlar and comes with a slightly larger display, we actually prefer the Moto X overall, as it has a more natural feel allowing it to fit more comfortably in our hand – not to mentioned that it’s made right here in the USA. Also with the Moto Maker coming to Verizon later this year, it will be an added bonus to create your own custom colored phone.
