The Motorola DROID Ultra is probably the least original flagship smartphone ever created. It’s not a refresh, but it’s not an entirely new phone. It’s a complete echo of the highly-favored Moto X, but in lower-quality plastic body and exclusive to Verizon Wireless under the DROID brand.
In my hands-on with the new DROIDs during the summer, myself and everyone at the demo tablet felt slightly confused as to why a Motorola device would be -re-branded just to fulfill Verizon Wireless’ needs.
Well, we know why now — sort of.
