Motorola's latest Android offering is basically the same as the Droid Ultra, but with an astonishing battery life.
-- The good: This speed demon of a smartphone is durably designed and perfectly sized. The 48-hour battery life works as advertised, and the 5-inch HD screen had us thinking, "iPhone who?"
-- The bad: That price tag. In a word: brutal. You better be all-in with the Android operating system to plunk down that kind of cash. Especially because of the phone's one failing: the camera just isn't that great.
-- The verdict: For international travelers, smartphone power-users (think games and movies) and those who wouldn't be caught dead with a pair of white earbuds, this one's for you.
