What Makes The Motorola DROID Turbo An Awesome Device

October 28, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

Motorola’s DROID Turbo is officially official. With Verizon’s event over, and the word out on when you can pick up your own DROID Turbo in Black or Red and with either 64GB or 32GB of storage, all that’s really left is to discuss some of the key points on what makes the DROID Turbo the awesome phone that it appears to be. This can be particularly useful to anyone that may be on the fence about the phone, or just general good information if you’re a tech geek like us. Motorola is known for their Kevlar backing use on some older devices, and the kevlar backing returns with the new DROID Turbo. They also feature the device in a nice looking Black Ballistic Nylon, so if kevlar isn’t your thing, the Ballistic nylon is actually really nice.

The protected backs are a great asset, and they certainly set the DROID Turbo apart from other devices, but they aren’t the only key features that makes this a device worth looking into for your next smartphone. It also features a boasted 48 hours of battery life,(whether it lasts that long remains to be determined, and results will obviously vary based on personal use)as well as 8 hours of life after only a 15 minute turbo charge. This is all thanks to the massive 3,900mAh battery that Motorola has packed inside this phone. It also boasts a QHD screen. The new DROID Turbo isn’t the first phone to use a QHD display mind you, it does however have the sharpest one out of the lot. The panel is 5.2-inches in size and comes with 565 ppi,(pixels per inch)which is a clarity unlike any other device out there at this point.

The DROID Turbo is just as strong as it is powerful, which you should gather from the build make up materials. We talked about the Kevlar or Ballistic Nylon reinforced backs earlier, but in addition to the reinforced backs Motorola has also built the DROID Turbo with a Metallized Glass Fiber body, which will play a part in the scratch resistance. The DROID Turbo is also water resistant, so a little bit of rain won’t hurt it. It will definitely be able to stand up to some damage, and should the unfortunate happen and you damage your screen beyond use, Verizon and Motorola will allow customers to replace the device for free one time as long as it’s within the 2-year contract period of purchase. Motorola has never been know for their amazing cameras on smartphones, but that changes with the DROID Turbo. It features a 21MP rear facing camera with dual-led flash, so you can expect some amazing pics. If you’re recording, the DROID Turbo will allow you to shoot 4K video too.

All that power behind the camera has to have something just as powerful to keep it running, and that’s where the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core CPU comes in. It clocks at 2.7GHz, so there’s definitely enough speed, and performance to go around for anything you do on the DROID Turbo. The DROID Turbo wouldn’t be a new Motorola device without the cool new Motorola software, and that’s certainly on board so you can utilize things like always on Moto voice, Moto Display, Moto Assist, and others. The phone also features excellent security standards with advanced AES encryption and Exchange ActiveSync, for the professional user out there. Did the DROID Turbo capture your attention? Was there a stand out feature that you like most about it?
