Verizon’s Droid Turbo is just the latest Android-running, Verizon-branded, Motorola device to hit the market – and this device will compete to be the flagship device of the market. However, as the Nexus is also designed and made by Motorola it points to their continued dominance in the Android market.
However, from top to bottom this device boasts some interesting features. First, it brings a 5.2-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, which is covered in Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. Many consider Gorilla Glass 3 to be the best option on the market today for companies that are producing smartphones. The back of the device is Kevlar, so it will obviously be one of the sturdiest devices on the market as well as being one of the most well-defined on-screen. The phone will also be boasting a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor. The Turbo will bring 3GB of RAM as far as memory is concerned as well.
The cameras are nothing to shake a stick at, either. In fact, the camera that faces the back will boast a 21-megapixel shooter. This will make it one of the most versatile shooters in a phone, and easily make it amongst the most powerful on the market as well. Some of the other specifications that get less attention, but ensure that the device will be keeping up with the top-tier competitors in the Android market are things like, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11 integration, NFC, and a microUSB for connective purposes. The storage options will be typical, boasting a 32GB option, as well as an upgradable 64GB option for those who want a little extra space for pictures.
That though pales in comparison to the gigantic battery life this phone brings to the table. A massive 3,900 mAh battery ensures 48 hours of battery life, and with a turbo charger the device can even operate for 8-hours on a 15-minute charge. The device will be available on October 30th and will cost $199 for the 32GB option and $249 for the extra storage.
It’s a device that will be one to be reckoned with when it comes to Android devices, and could easily be one that is seen as the dominant device through the foreseeable future.
