Motorola Droid Turbo is a high quality phone launched in October 2014, packing a very fast 2700 MHz Quad-Core processing unit, a pretty big 5.2" multi touch capacitive screen, and 2 cameras, a 20.7 megapixels back side camera and a 2 megapixels front side camera.

Motorola offers the Motorola Droid Turbo in two colors, black and blue. This phone doesn't feel very lightweight comparing to other cellphones , weighting 6.21 ounces. This cellphone is thin and practical, whereas it's not as slim as many other phones on sale, with a thickness of 0.44 inches. This phone is a very compact cellphone, given that it packs a 5.2 inches display and it's just 5.65 inches long and 2.89" wide.

The Motorola Droid Turbo includes a gorgeous 5.2 inches display with a 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels in the display. Its display uses AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

This cellphone ships with a very powerful 2700 MHz Quad-Core processor, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 chip with a big 3 GB RAM memory. Graphic intensive apps and games usually uses a lot of processor time, so this phone also has a 500 megahertz Adreno 420 GPU to unload the processor. A good point of this phone is its large 32 GB internal memory and whereas it doesn't have an SD memory slot, it it is more than enough to install tons of apps, games, pictures and videos without having to worry about running out of space at all.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 20.7 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 2 MP front side camera. It can also film 4K 3840x2160 videos at 24 fps, and slow motion videos in (Full HD) (1920x1080) at 30 frames per second (1 times slower ). In addition, the camera has multiple great features: flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This cellphone provides Wi-Fi connectivity (and it can be shared with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high performance internet connection and fast 3G data connection, using HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks and it can work with both CDMA and GSM networks.

The Motorola Droid Turbo also comes with a lot of useful features such as NFC, Infrared Transmitter, Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS Localization, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone packs a 3900 mAh large replaceable battery providing this cellphone a marvelous battery life.

This cellphone is being sold for $ 700, which is very expensive for a cellphone this level. If you want a social phone, you love taking pictures, need a device for work or want a cellphone for playing games, you will probably love this phone.
