Motorola Droid Ultra review: Superthin phone flattened by its Verizon rivals

 

The Droid Ultra's $199.99 price and even its very existence baffles me. Standing smack dab in between the affordable $99.99 Droid Mini and pricey $299.99 Droid Maxx , the only reason to choose the Ultra is either because you value trimness above all...

The superthin Motorola Droid Ultra has a lovely, large screen and takes pleasing pictures. The phone also has long battery life and offers slick tricks such as advanced voice commands and screen-based notifications.

The Motorola Droid Ultra’s chassis feels slippery, collects prints and smudges easily, and isn’t comfortable to hold. The phone has just 16GB of internal storage and no SD card slot.

Unless you want the thinnest smartphone on the block, the more powerful HTC One and Droid Maxx are better buys.

Review: Motorola Droid

 

The Motorola Droid is the first Android handset on Verizon. Better yet it can do some things the iPhone only dreams of.

An awesome Android phone on the Verizon network — finally! Gorgeous, responsive touchscreen. Fast, fast processor. Excellent browser. User-replaceable battery

We want our multitouch pinch! Difficult-to-use physical keyboard. Pocket-tearing heft

Motorola DROID review

 

It's hard to look at the DROID without looking at the company which brought the device to life. Motorola: for years the name has been synonymous with... well, disappointment. While the industry-stalwart made cellphones sexy with the RAZR, the days...

Handsome and unique design ; Hardware keyboard ; Google Navigation on-board

Hardware keyboard isn't great ; Android software selection still thin ; UI still not a seamless experience

Motorola Droid

 

A huge high-res touchscreen, speedy Web browsing, and free GPS navigation make this smart phone our top pick for Verizon Wireless.

The Motorola Droid is hands-down our favorite smart phone for Verizon Wireless. We love the large display, free GPS navigation, and the way Android 2.0 streamlines your contacts. This is also the best mobile Web experience you can get on Verizon's...

Motorola Droid (Verizon Wireless) review:

 

On June 30, 2010, we adjusted the ratings to reflect new devices in the market.

The Motorola Droid boasts a gorgeous display and the benefits of Android 2.0, including a faster Web browser, Google Maps Navigation app, and better messaging and contact management. It also offers excellent call quality, long talk time, and improved...

The QWERTY keyboard feels flat and the dialpad control is restricted to the home screen. Music and video capabilities still trail behind the competition. Dual-mode functionality for world-roaming capabilities would have been a nice addition. The Droid...

Despite some design issues and a couple of missing features, the Motorola Droid is the most powerful and fastest Google Android device to date. It fully embraces the openness of the Android platform and offers Verizon customers a smartphone that...

Motorola Droid

 

The first time you pick up the Motorola Droid ($200 with a two-year contract from Verizon; price as of 10/28/09), you'll notice its solid feel and heft--there's a lot going on behind the crisp, 3.7-inch touchscreen. Making good use of Android 2.0's new...

Snappy Web browsing ; Gorgeous 3.7-inch display

Some camera images come out grainy ; Flat keyboard is difficult to type on

The first Android 2.0 phone impresses with a strong suite of Web features and a stunning 3.7-inch display, but some users might have trouble with the shallow keyboard.

The Motorola DROID has a lot to offer running the Google Android OS 2.0.1 and at the top of that list is a speedy user experience. Nothing seems to lag on this smartphone and it comes with plenty of features to keep you busy. The music player is...

Motorola DROID Review

 

The deed is complete and the joining of two unfamiliar players has come to fruition – finally. Verizon Wireless has held out long enough from embracing the Android camp because of the fear losing complete control in the way apps and media are carefully...

Exclusive to Verizon, Motorola's line of Droid phones is instantly recognizable for their red and black color schemes and high-tech look and feel. Motorola tends to release these Android phones in threes, with a flagship model, a light version and a...
