Motorola DROID Ultra Specifications Review
Motorola Droid Ultra comes with a lovely thin design featuring a huge 5.0” Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. Ultra thin and extra large, those words may represents the phone well. The high resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (294 ppi pixel density) makes the large screen even more beautiful. It looks so bright and attractive. The images are sharp and the colors are pretty vibrant. You won’t miss any detail in photos. This also means that you’ll be able to enjoy great multimedia experience from the phone. Corning Gorilla Glass will protect the screen from scratches. The Droid Ultra is also splash-resistant. The Multitouch support allows you to operate the phone easier via touchscreen. Other standard features like Accelerometer, Gyroscope, and Proximity sensor are also included.
Under the hood, a dual-core 1.7 GHz Krait processor works together with Adreno 320 GPU, and 2 GB of RAM to power the phone. The performance is quite impressive and extremely responsive. The Android v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system runs pretty well and most apps can be opened promptly. The phone allows you to do many interesting things, more than just basic tasks. Another excitement comes from the 4G LTE support which enables faster data connection. To accommodate your data and media files, it provides 16 GB of internal storage. You won’t be able to expand the storage capacity due to the absence of memory card slot. For connectivity, there is a variety of options including Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (dual-band), Wi-Fi hotspot; DLNA; Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP, LE, EDR; microUSB v2.0; and NFC.
On the rear panel, you can find a 10 MP camera which is equipped with autofocus, LED flash, Touch focus, geo-tagging, face detection, and video recording capability. It can produce great quality pictures with sharp details and accurate colors. You can also use it to record videos up to 1080p@30fps. For the best result, it needs good lighting. A front-facing 2 MP camera is a perfect addition as you can use it for video calling or taking self-portraits.
There are still many other features available in this phone including Digital compass; Barometer; GPS with A-GPS support and GLONASS; Document viewer/editor; Instant Messaging; HTML5; SNS integration; Droid command center; Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic; Voice memo; Voice dial; Voice commands; Google Search; Maps; Gmail; YouTube; Google Talk; Picasa; MP3/AAC+/WAV/WMA player; MP4/H.263/H.264/WMV player; Organizer; Predictive text input; and more.
