Thanks to the numerous rumors and leaks, the latest Verizon’s exclusive phone by Motorola was not a mystery at all. By the way, DROID Turbo is now official and the giant carrier is going to start selling it for just $199.99 from October 30th for the 32GB model.
The DROID Turbo’s competitive advantage against other high-end Android phones is about the battery life, as according to the Verizon’s announcement the battery lasts for up to 48 hours for performing regular tasks with the device.


DROID Turbo General Specifications:

  • 143.5 x 73.3 x 7.8 mm, 169 g
  • 5.2 inches Super AMOLED screen, 1440 x 2560 pixels, 565ppi)
  • Quad-core 2.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805
  • 3GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of internal memory (No memory card slot)
  • 21MP / 2MP Main and Rear cameras, 2160p@24fps video recording
  • Android 4.4.4 Kitkat (Will be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop)
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, LTE, NFC, Bluetooth v4.0, Infrared
  • Non-removable Li-Po 3900 mAh battery

Wow, look at the specs. Could it be any better? We doubt it.

If we want to compare the latest Motorola’s two devices, Moto X 2014 and DROID Turbo, we should say the latter is actually the updated version of Moto X especially in the display and the processor as the DROID Turbo packs a gorgeous Quad-HD screen powered by a Snapdragon 805 chipset and 3GB of RAM to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Regarding the design, while the front has nothing new to offer the back cover is just amazing as it takes advantage of a Kevlar-backed design, or a ballistic fiber.


As for the camera, the 21MP lens for the main camera along with the dual-LED flash is expected to deliver some sharp and neat pictures, and the 4K video recording option is for those who want to recor d with the highest resolution possible.


Since Android 5.0 is not released yet (even for Nexus devices), DROID Turbo will be shipped running Android 4.4.4 Kitkat, but Motorola and Verizon promise a prompt update as soon as the codes are provided by Google. For now, users can enjoy the pure Android (almost pure) along with some Motorola’s software tricks including Zap to TV, Zap to Voice, Moto Voice, Moto Actions, Moto Assist and Moto Display, as well as Droid Zap to share pictures with other Droid devices.


The last but not the least is about the battery life, where Motorola claims that their latest device is able to get you through 48 straight hours, and the story gets even more exciting as the battery will provide 8 hours of work if it gets plugged for just 15 minutes. That’s unbelievable, isn’t it?


DROID Turbo is exclusive to Verizon and you can order the 32GB version for $199.99 in Metallic Black, Metallic Red, and Black Ballistic Nylon colors, and you will be charged $50 more if you go for the 64GB Black Ballistic Nylon model. As mentioned earlier, DROID Turbo will be available to purchase from Verizon’s website as well the carrier’s stores.

It is still unclear whether the handset remains exclusive to the Verizon or not, but if we trust the rumors we may just see the international variant in the early November.
