Forum Added for the Motorola Droid Ultra

Not too long ago we talked a little bit about the Moto X and gave it a place here on the forums. While Motorola’s first real post-Google flagship may not have what it takes to win over the specification-frenzied techno-elite, its innovative software features have won the favor quite a few. This has lead to apps that emulate much of the functionality on other devices. However, the Moto X isn’t Motorola’s only high end phone.

Launching exclusively on Verizon in the US, the Motorola Droid Ultra (as well as the Droid Maxx) shares much of its internals with the flagship Moto X. They both carry the Motorola X8 Computing System, which is essentially a 1.7 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, along with two low-voltage companion cores for additional processing. The Moto X and the Droid Ultra also share 2 GB of RAM, a 2 MP front-facing camera, and a 10 MP rear-facing camrea.

The Droid Ultra breaks free from its cousin device by offering a 5-inch AMOLED panel running at 720p with 294 ppi. It also features 16 GB of internal storage and a 2130 mAh fixed battery, all in a splash-resistant 7.2 mm enclosure that weighs just 137 grams.

Is the Droid Ultra your next phone, or are you holding out for the Moto X or HTC One on Verizon? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t forget to visit the newly created Droid Ultra forum.

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
