Motorola DROID Turbo Review

32 GB Metalized Fiber     See other variants reviews Score: 9.61

Motorola DROID Turbo is an incredible phone released in 2014, coming with a high performance 2.7 gigahertz Quad-Core processing unit, a pretty large 5.2-inches touch-screen, a 20.7 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 2 mega-pixels front-facing camera. That's all? Not at all, it's just the beginning of this extreme review.

Though this phone only has 5.65 inches long, it manages to pack a 5.2" display. This cellphone's thickness , 0.42 inches, is quite far from today's standards, but it still feels in the hand. Motorola made this cellphone in 2 color options: gray and red. Motorola didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 5.96 ounces phone.

Motorola ships this phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 chip, including a high-tech 2.7 GHz Quad-Core processor and a big 3 GB RAM memory. Graphic calculations often eats lots of processing power, so this phone counts with an Adreno 420 graphic processing unit speeding at 500 megahertz to take some work out of the processor. This phone counts with an amazing 32 GB internal storage memory and whereas it doesn't count with a slot for SD memory cards, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of applications without even thinking about filling the phone.

This cellphone has a high-tech 5.2" screen with a 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, making everything look beautiful and brightful. This screen uses AMOLED capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This cellphone has Wi-Fi connectivity (which can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed internet connection and 3G fast data connection, over HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. This phone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM services and it works with both GSM and CDMA carriers.

This phone has two cameras, a 20.7 mega-pixels back camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera. It can also shoot videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 24 frames per second, and Full HD 1920x1080 slow-motion videos at 30 frames per second. This device also has many useful features like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This device packs an amazing 3900 mAh removable battery, enough to provide this phone with an impressive battery life.

The Motorola DROID Turbo also features a lot of great features like NFC, Infrared Transmitter, Bluetooth (provides communication with other cellphones and accessories) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This phone is being sold for around 158 dollars, quite the same as other similar cellphones. This phone is a very good choice no matter if you are looking for a gaming device, will use it for work, are looking for a social cellphone or are an amateur photographer.
