If there’s one company that we want to be as competitive as Samsung and HTC, it would be Motorola. Motorola became very famous because of its Symbian phone line, the Moto Razor phones. But today, it has also joined in releasing smartphones that are running the Android operating system.
The Motorola Droid Ultra is released after the Motorola Droid Mini and Droid Maxx. It’s a 5-incher smartphone, 5.4 inches tall to be exact. We can’t deny the fact that this new Motorola handset has a really wide screen that you may consider it as a phablet. It is also relatively light because it only weighs 4.8 ounces. We’re all impressed to see a wide phone that is slim and very light to tag along with.
It has a 5-inch display that uses an OLED screen. So, you may expect vibrant colors to be popping on the screen while you’re using it. It has a maximum of 720p resolution or equivalent to 1,280×720 pixels on the screen.
It should be a fast and powerful smartphone because it’s powered by a dual-core processor. It is powered by an X8 processor, which is a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S$ Pro chip from Qualcomm. It may not be as powerful as the processors built-in on Samsung S4 and HTC One, but it’s more than enough to meet the demands of certain applications.
The dual-core processor is then partnered with a 2GB RAM, which makes its users cast a deep breath knowing that this phone won’t certainly have too many lags while operating. However, its memory storage can’t be expanded by using a memory card. But it has a built-in 16GB of memory storage that the end-user will surely enjoy.
The Motorola Droid Ultra has an operating system of Android Jelly Bean version and can be easily upgraded as soon as another update is released for the current system. We also love the screen’s capability to create pulses and strobe some lights whenever there’s a notification or reminder that you have saved for the day.
According to the benchmarking test results, it wasn’t able to surpass the numbers of HTC and Samsung’s latest releases. But we are more confident that this smartphone can maximize its power up to its own level. Furthermore, this handset is available for almost $200 and you can get it unlocked or with a contract from certain mobile carriers.
