In 2014, there were quite a few smartphones which landed in the market. Not to mention, a few real big hitters. Of late, most of the news and attention has focused on the twin S6 devices, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. However, they are just the newest in the line of what has been a consistent releasing of smartphones. One of the big attention grabbing smartphones which landed in the latter part of last year was the Motorola DROID Turbo. This one caused quite a stir prior to the release and even came with a couple of interesting videos starring James Franco

If for whatever reason you missed the DROID Turb when it first landed, this was one which comes boasting some very decent specs. To recap, the DROID Turbo comes with a 5.2-inch QHD AMOLED display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution. Inside, the DROID Turbo is equipped with 3GB RAM and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor (clocking at 2.7GHz), along with an Adreno 420 graphics processor. Camera wise, the DROID Turbo is loaded with a 21MP rear camera (with dual-led flash) while the front facing option on offer is a more modest 2MP camera. Additional features on offer include support for 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE networks, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS and a whopping 3,900mAh battery. Not to mention, the device comes with the now-famous Turbo Charging and supports Qi wireless charging. In terms of Android, the DROID Turbo is one of the few who have yet to see the update to Android 5.0 (Lollipop) coming through, however, it was recently reported the device will be pushed straight up to Android 5.1.

Well, when the device did launch in the U.S., back in October, the price for the DROID Turbo came in at $599.99 for the off-contract 32GB model. Well, it seems that Verizon have now dropped the price of the off-contract 32GB version, down to only $499.99. This is still a hefty amount but a $100 saving is still a $100 saving. Not to mention, when you consider the price of the twin S6 devices, this does not seem so much anymore. If you are interested you can pick one up by hitting the source link below.
