So colored buttons are more important than skip fwd / skip back buttons, which are missing on the Ultimate? I don't know about you, but I use skip buttons more than any others. Granted they have workarounds like long presses and gestures, but that simply doesn't cut it for me.
Any button press will turn on the backlight on the Touch, so lack of motion sensor isn't really a problem.
If you are open to anything besides Harmony, I think the Xsight Touch is pretty much perfect and only $40 shipped worldwide on ebay. It has all the same hard buttons as the One plus colored buttons, touch screen, recharegable battery and charging stand, motion sensor, stellar battery life, 18 devices, activity based web programming as well as excellent 3rd party programming tools should the website ever go offline. I have several of them. They run circles around every Harmony I've ever seen. You have complete control over the contents of all your macros (activity and sequence), ability to create and add your own custom devices, import pronto hex, locally backup and restore all configs, and have multiple favorites lists for any device (with channel logos).
