The 17-minute YouTube video that we have embedded for you below this story offers a really good look at both of these devices and highlights some of the differences and similarities. Both phones cost $199.99 on the usual two-year contract on Verizon, and the video begins with a look at the design of the two handsets. When moving on to the display a key difference noted is the resolution, as the Galaxy S4 offers a Full HD display that the Droid Ultra lacks.

The video proceeds with a look at the interfaces and functionality, features, and benchmark tests and then compares the camera set-ups of the two phones. Call quality and battery life are also discussed and the removable battery of the S4 could be an advantage for heavy phone users.
