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.
