Droid Turbo

The Motorola Droid Turbo is a powerful smartphone with the latest high-end components, a better-than-average rear-facing camera, and a guaranteed two days of battery life

The Turbo features a fantastic 5.2-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of about 564 pixels-per-inch. The display is fully visible from any angle, and its color profiles aren’t overly saturated like Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays. My only complaint is that it would have been nice if Motorola extended the display down a bit and used soft, on-screen buttons instead of off-screen capacitive buttons.

Droid Turbo is one hell of a smartphone. It’s packed with a quad-core 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a whopping 3,900mAh battery pack, which we’ll touch upon in the next section.
Video capture tops out at 24 frames-per-second in 4K recording mode and 30 frames-per-second in 1080p recording mode.

Rear-facing 21-megapixel camera. The Droid Turbo runs near-stock Android 4.4.4 KitKat, though it will soon get an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop. The interface is plain vanilla for the most part, and will require some tender love and care when you first bring it home. It also doesn’t utilize the nifty Google Launcher on phones like the Nexus 5, where Google Now lives on its own Home screen.
