Available on Verizon Wireless
Motorola and Verizon officially announced the Droid Turbo and it when up for sale today. This phone has really not been much of a secret, with images and specs unofficially leaked over the last month. All that said this phone looks to be a beast, and if your on big red with an upgrade burning a hole in your pocket you need to check this phone out.
The Turbo’s specs are impressive to say the least. It boasts a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 805 processor with 2.7 GHz quad-core CPU (APQ8084) with 64-bit memory access, Adreno 420 @ 600 MHz GPU, 3 gb of memory, and a best in class 5.2” 1440p Quad HD 2560×1440 AMOLED, 565 ppi covered in Corning® Gorilla Glass® 3. It has a 21 MP (5248×3936) in 4:3/15.5 MP (2952×5248) in 16:9 back camera and a 2 MP front camera, water proof, and of course it carries Verizon’s 4g bands.
The most impressive features of this phone in the battery compartment. The Turbo is toting a 3900 mAh battery with Motorola’s Turbo charging capability. The 3900 mAh battery is quoted to give you up to 48 hours on a single charge and as I have said before, the battery is the most important feature of a phone. All the high specs is the world do you no good if your phone is dead in your pocket. On the same note, the Turbo charger claims to give you 8 hours worth of a charge in just 15 minutes. This is a phenomenal feature.Forget to plug in at night, no problem, a quick 15 minutes and your ready to make it through a standard work day.
Looking over all the information on this phone, I think Moto has a winner on its hands here, Great battery and top of the line internals along with the very light skinning that Moto applies to it versions of android has this looking like an android enthusiast dream. I like the screen size, it is just out of the phablet range and stands out as a large phone. Still pocketable and does not look silly if you actually use it as a phone and talk with it. I do believe this will be my next phone. Click the source link and check out Motorola’s full product page or head over to Verizon wireless and pick it up for $199.
