The Droid Turbo is a beastly device even by today’s standard and now you may actually want to own a Droid branded product again. I was a long time owner of a Droid Ultra and that device was ok, but it really wasn’t anything truly special. Before that I owned the HTC Droid DNA and the Motorola Droid RAZR HD before that. The DNA was an absolute joy and the Droid RAZR HD was great for the long day, but had poor performance and many other short falls that led to it’s demise. However no Droid device has quite excited me, that is until I laid eyes on the Droid Turbo. The name is as terrible as it probably could have been, but the spec sheet and images speak for themselves.
The Droid Turbo Specs
This device is officially worthy of the branding, Droid. This device is packing next generation hardware all over the board, such as a Snapdragon 805 CPU clocking in at 2.7 GHz, Quad HD display sporting Gorilla Glass 3 and measuring in at 5.2 inches with a killer 565 pixels per inch, and 3 GB of RAM. The Droid Turbo now sports a whopping 20.7 megapixel camera with a dual LED flash that I hope is a great improvement to last years mediocre camera. There is also now 32 GB of storage which is way better than last years 16 GB.
Now, Motorola has always been a leader in battery life with there Maxx line of Droid phones such as last years Droid Maxx which had an easy day and a half of battery life. Sony has recently come along and stolen Motorola’s thunder with their promise of 2 days on battery with moderate usage in the Xperia Z3. Not to be out done by Sony, Motorola has outfitted the Turbo with a massive 3,900 mAh battery that is said to last for 2 days and then some. Also, other minor changes to this years Droid model are that it’s now made out of Metallized Glass Fiber that is reinforced by Kevlar. The Droid Turbo also comes with Motorola’s new charger that supposedly will get you 8 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging.
