Verizon Wireless customers have a great selection of Android handsets to choose from, and with the introduction of the Verizon HTC One, the choice got a bit harder. In this dogfight battle, Aaron pits the HTC One up against the Motorola Droid Ultra, the middle unit in the trio of new Droid smartphones. The HTC One packs a 1.7 GHz quad-core CPU, 4.7-inch 1080p HD display, 4-ultrapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 2,300 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 with HTC Sense 5. The Motorola Droid Ultra offers a 1.7 GHz dual-core CPU with Motorola's X8 architecture, 5-inch 720p AMOLED display, 10-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, 2,130 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.
Verizon's HTC One is the only one (pun intended) to come with Android 4.2 out of the box, and it offers a beautiful metal build and fantastic specifications. The Droid Ultra is no slouch either; the 5-inch display is a great size and it feels great in the hand. Which one is the better buy? Part 1 of 2.
