About a month or so ago, I received the newest member of my technology entourage – the Motorola Droid Ultra. Having been an iPhone user for years, I switched recently to the Galaxy S4, well before receiving the Ultra, and haven’t look backed. Like, at all. So why has this review taken me so long write?
Hi, my name is Dusty and I’ve cheated on my phone. I’ve fallen in love with another phone.
It’s hard to admit, but I am truly in love with the new Droid Ultra. From the moment I started the phone, saw the crystal clear graphics on its 5-inch HD touch screen.
The Droid Ultra is perfect for the accident prone – like me – because of its durable construction. The back of the phone is constructed with DuPont™ KEVLAR® fiber which is five times the strength of steel*. The front of the Droid Ultra is protected by scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass. This chemically strengthened glass has an atomic configuration formulated so that the glass is more durable – a huge selling point if you frequently drop your phone, throw it in your purse or slide it in your pocket, or if you have kids that are as addicted to apps as you are.
For those on the go
The Motorola Droid Ultra is like the girl we all hate – both pretty and thin – but it’s hard not to love this phone. It’s an impressive 7.18mm thin and super lightweight so it’s easy to carry. The battery has a 18-hour usage time or up to 13 days standby time which means less battery charges and more work (or play).
The Droid Ultra also features Droid Zap so, with just one gesture, you can send your content to the cloud, and anyone nearby with an Android™ phone running 2.2 or greater can download the media. You’ll also enjoy the hands-free, touchless control which recognizes only your voices and obey your commands – I can’t even get my kids to do that!
“OK, Google now… create a calendar event.””OK, Google now… scan a barcode.”
“OK, Google now… send email.”
“OK, Google now… be awesome.”
The good news? I love this phone. It’s far better than what my iPhone was, and is neck and neck with my current phone, though the more I use it the more quickly it’s shooting ahead.
