Now the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone is also one of the strongest. DROID ULTRA by Motorola measures just 7.18mm yet still boasts a 5-inch HD display and an excellent all-day battery life. And its seamless design is reinforced with DuPont KEVLAR fiber and protected by scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. A Verizon exclusive, the DROID ULTRA keeps up with your every move, whether it's shooting great low-light photos or sharing video quickly at 4G LTE speed.

Running the Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system, the DROID ULTRA is powered by the Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System, which includes a software optimized Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro (1.7 GHz Dual-Core Krait CPU, quad-core Adreno 320 GPU), a natural language processor, and a contextual computing processor.
Keeping up with the DROID tradition, the DROID ULTRA gives you what you expect from a DROID on Verizon -- intelligence, strength and endurance. It starts with DROID Command Center, an exclusive homescreen widget that enables you to easily access notifications for text messages, missed calls, battery level, and weather. It also serves as the gateway to new features including Wireless Display to mirror what's on the screen onto a compatible HDTV to play games, browse the Web, and share pictures on a big screen.
The DROID ULTRA has 16 GB of internal storage, and its 2130 mAh battery provides up to 28 hours of mixed use based on typical usage patterns.
More Pics in More Places
With the Quick Capture feature, you can access the 10-megapixel camera by shaking the phone twice, then tapping anywhere on the screen to snap a pic or a selfie. The embedded Clear Pixel technology collects more light and snaps pictures up to twice as fast as other phone's cameras, so you can capture the darkest scenes or stop motion blur in bright light. The rear camera also records Full HD 1080p video and stereo sound, while the front-facing 2-megapixel camera is great for self portraits and video chats.
The 10-megapixel rear camera has a 16:9 aspect ratio and can shoot video at up to Full HD 1080p resolution at 30 fps (frames per second) with slow motion. It also features auto HDR, a panorama option, photo burst, and a 4x digital zoom. The front-facing 2-megapixel camera is great for self portraits and video chats.
DROID Zap Makes Sharing Easy
Sharing with a friend or a group of friends nearby is simple with the DROID Zap feature. Just one gesture sends your content to the cloud, and anyone nearby with an Android phone running Jelly Bean 2.2 or greater can download the media. And if you want to limit who sees your stuff, add a pin code. Seamlessly share the latest memories with your friends and family without the need for wires -- or even physical contact.
The DROID ULTRA responds to your voice, without you having to touch it. You just have to say: "OK Google Now" and give it a command. You can check messages, set an alarm, get directions, find out the weather, or do just about anything. With just a little training in a quiet room, your DROID ULTRA learns to recognize your voice. Then it knows you, even when everyone's talking at once. And thanks to the super low-power natural language processor, your DROID ULTRA is always ready with a quick response.
Even when it seems to be sleeping, your DROID ULTRA is paying attention. Instead of a blinking light that doesn't actually tell you anything, information quietly appears on the screen. You don't have to wake your phone to look at the time or see your messages. But the active display is also smart enough to know when it's in your pocket or when it's placed face down so it won't deliver notifications, saving on battery power. As soon as you take it out of your pocket or turn it over, it discretely pulses with the time and any notifications you've received.
When you need a little more info, just touch the notification icon and details will appear on the top and bottom of the screen. Drag the icon up and the app associated with the notification will open. Drag the icon left or right to make them all go away.

Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) OS
Fast, fluid, and smooth, the Android 4.2 operating system (nicknamed Jelly Bean) offers effortless movement between home screens -- like turning the pages of a book. And it includes faster orientation changes, quicker switching between recent apps, and smoother and more consistent rendering throughout your mobile device. And widgets work like magic.
