DROID ULTRA Unboxing and Tour

droid ultra

With the Moto X review out of the way, it’s time to focus in on Motorola’s other offerings through Verizon, the new DROID family. First up is the DROID ULTRA, which arrived in review-unit-form from Big Red this morning. We’ll hopefully have the MAXX early next week, but for now, it’s all about the thinner brother from the same Chicago-based mother.¬†

In terms of specs, the DROID ULTRA is almost identical to the Moto X (and the other new DROIDs), except that it features a 5-inch display, a glossy back finish, capacitive navigation buttons, and is incredibly thin. But on paper, most of the internals match up since it features a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with X8 Mobile Computing, 2GB RAM, 16GB on-board storage, no microSD slot, 4G LTE, and mostly stock Android 4.2.2. The ULTRA will be available in three colors:  white, red and black (which I have here).

But on the software front, the ULTRA matches the Moto X blow-for-blow (has Touchless Control, Active Display, etc.), while also including a DROID Zap sharing app and the Command Center 3-circle battery widget.

Our full review, comparisons, and feature highlights will arrive soon – for now, here is an unboxing.

    device looks great, i’m becoming more of a motorola fan. 16gb internal and no sd slot = deal breaker

    As a consumer community, we really have only one real tool at our disposal regarding this ridiculous trend of leaving out the sdcard slot: don’t buy a phone without it. And furthermore, recommend others the same. The only possible way we will prevent that type of design from taking over is if we refuse those products now, and in large enough numbers to hurt the manufacturers’ profits…
