Review: Motorola Droid Turbo for Verizon Wireless

Form Performance Basics Moto Apps Extras Wrap-Up Comments  1  

The Droid Turbo isn't perfect, but it's one of Motorola's finest efforts. It outclasses the Moto X in overall performance, though the X has a bit more personality. The Nexus 6 is similar to the Turbo as far as specs go, but is much bigger and borrows the X's design language.

Highlights of the Turbo include the great quad-HD screen, network performance, and of course the killer battery life. After using the phone for five days, I found it nearly impossible to kill the battery in a single day. It often lasts 1.5 days or longer. The design is modern, sleek, and fitting of Motorola's Droid family name.

Motorola's additions to the stock Android operating system are tasteful and helpful. Active Display and Moto Voice are two of the best tools created by any Android phone maker and really help when it comes to managing certain tasks. It's worth noting that the Droid Turbo should be among the first devices to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The Snapdragon 805 processor is a monster that delivers all the performance a smartphone owner could ever hope for. I was hoping for a bit more from the 21-megapixel camera, but it gets the job done most of the time.

Would I recommend the Motorola Droid Turbo? If battery life is your number one concern, then there's no other device to consider. Few phones best it in battery life. Beyond the battery life, the Droid Turbo competes well with other flagship smartphones sold by Verizon and is well worth your money.
