The Droid Ultra

See also

Well, I've returned the Moto X and the Droid Mini to Verizon--but fear not, Verizon is keeping me in phones.

Make way for the Droid ULTRA!

That's right; I have in my possession a Motorola Droid Ultra. It's one of three Android phones available from Verizon; the Mini, the Maxx and my current said device. And hey, so far the experience is going ultra smooth. It provides great service, it's user-friendly, responsive and it's a better fit for me than the Mini since it's significantly larger and has a bigger display--it's even larger than the Moto X(designed by you), however it's pretty slim and very lightweight for a phone with this size display.

From another article I read online, the difference between the Ultra and the Maxx comes down to battery size and perhaps memory; the Maxx and Ultra have the same display size but the Ultra is slimmer and lighter in weight. I would think it's better if you like to travel light and are able to charge it more often; it's perfect for me.

I enjoyed the uninterrupted service it provided me for Pandora internet radio as I listened to Beethoven while working out at the Y--actually I didn't listen to Beethoven radio today, but I do enjoy that station while getting a good pump.

The device is so sleek and lightweight, I barely remembered it was in my pocket as I ordered a burrito at Chipotle after the workout. Undetectable, just like the Wauwatosa Police officer who I passed on the way from the Y to Chipotle who ended up, unnoticed by myself until half-way through my order, that he had turned up next to me in line to order a burrito as well.

Unfortunately, he found out that I take my burrito with chicken, fajita vegetables, no beans, lettuce and a side of guac.

I ate a cupcake after the burrito.
