No More Droid Ultra or 32gb Droid Maxx???

2014-05-15, 0:19 AM


When I was looking at the verizon website today, I noticed that the droid ultra is no longer offered. Then when I looked through the maxx page, I noticed that it now only comes in 16gb. The same is also now shown on motorola's own website.

When I ordered my Ultra from verizon about 3 weeks ago, I went back online the next day, to check out the features again, It wasnt available anymore. Kinda bummed me out knowing I probably got the last one, I will be the LAST ONE able to upgrade, I hope it lasts, also it was supposed to be white but its black

I'd check in a store - I believe that they may still have stock in stores. But, that's right, a few weeks ago Verizon changed the Maxx to 16 GB with two different colors. It was in the Android news anyway. See http://www.androidcentral.com/verizon-releases-droid-maxx-two-new-color-options

Frustrating thing is the phones aren't even a year old.

Yes this is indeed disappointing and makes me wonder why.  To me it sounds like a step backwards and doesn't make too much sense really...if anything, you would think the 16gb version is the one which they would stop offering - especially since there is no external memory slot.  It makes me wonder if this has anything to do with various complaints I've read about the 32gb version coming apart slightly at the seams (in the areas where the display meets the kevlar).  Although my Razr Maxx still works fine, I was ready to purchase the Droid Maxx when my contract expired a month ago - but since then I've had 2nd thoughts while waiting patiently, and more than likely I will be purchasing a different phone in the next couple of weeks.

I assume that Verizon is very good at measuring how well they sell their phones. I imagine that the explanation could be something like this: with new phones from LG, Samsung, and HTC since the Droids shipped, people were less and less willing to pay what was being charged for the Droids. Also, I think it's always been clear that the Ultra did not sell well. So, cut the component price of the Maxx by shipping it with 16 GB only, drop the Ultra (since it's not selling well anyway), and see if you can sell enough Maxxes at a lower price point until it's time to refresh the line, presumably this summer.

Or, 16GB is all they have left in inventory awaiting either a new shipment, or a new model.
