In terms of design build this model is definitely tough since it uses a Kevlar fiber body however this is covered in a glossy plastic shell. This makes the device prone to fingerprints and smudges. It’s very solid without any creaks and looks like it could survive several drops.
This device doesn’t have a microSD slot though so there’s no way of expanding the internal storage of the device. The battery is also sealed inside so its non-user replaceable.
The bottom line is that the DROID Ultra is a solid smartphone that is fast and stable. With a price of only $99 it’s definitely a device worth considering.
