Thorough HTC One vs. Motorola Droid Ultra review

Let’s say that you are with Verizon and you are looking to get yourself a new handset, then your troubles have only just begun. We say this because the carrier now has some great new phones in their line-up, but we thought we would take a closer look at two of the latest to come to Big Red to see just what they have to offer.

Today we thought you would like to see the dogfight between the HTC One and the Motorola Droid Ultra, to see which comes out as top dog? We already know the Ultra represents one of a trio of devices from the range, whereas the HTC One has been a long time coming on Verizon.

You’ll notice that we have included two videos, both could have been done as one but the reviewer thought it was a good idea to do it in two parts.

The HTC One specs are rather impressive with a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 4.7-inch 1080p display, 4-utlrapixel camera to the rear, non-removable battery, 32GB of internal storage and no SD card slot.

Motorola’s Droid Ultra is a little different in way of its UI and looks, but when it comes to specs it is very similar. It has the same speed processor, but of a different variety, it has a little bit bigger 5-inch display, but only 720p, and to the rear is a 10-megapixel camera.

It is not always about specs though because the UI, build quality and the overall experience is also of great importance. However, some people may want to hold out for the Ultra Max because it offers just that little bit more, but then again so will the HTC One Max, but that is a completely new battle.

The second video carries on from where the first one left off, although it does look at some of the other key HTC One and Motorola Droid Ultra features. You will notice both devices are running very different versions of Android because their UI has very different experiences.

We can’t help notice the Motorola has more useful features and is also faster in real-world tests, and so seems to be what the Moto X could have been in terms of speed. Having said that, the Moto X does have a much cleaner version of Android running.

We do hope these videos are of a great help, but if not there is always the Galaxy Note 3 to consider if you are looking for something larger that is?
