Motorola DROID Turbo is a brilliantly made Android phone released back in 2014, equipped with a quite big 5.2 inches multi touch screen, a high performance 2700 MHz Quad-Core CPU, a 20.7 mega-pixels back camera and a 2 mega-pixels front camera.

Motorola sells the Motorola DROID Turbo with an extremely powerful 2.7 GHz Quad-Core processing unit, packed into a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 system chip with a great 3 GB of RAM memory. Handling graphic calculations, it also counts with an Adreno 420 graphic processing unit ticking at 500 megahertz. A good point of this cellphone is its 32 GB astonishing internal storage and though it doesn't include a slot for an external memory card, it is still enough to install tons of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without even thinking about filling the cellphone.

Motorola offers this cellphone in gray and red. While the Motorola DROID Turbo just has 5.65 inches long and 2.89" wide, it manages to pack a 5.2" display. The Motorola DROID Turbo's thickness of 0.42 inches is a little far from nowadays standards, but it still feels comfortable in the user's hand. Apparently Motorola forgot about weight optimization in this 5.96 oz phone.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 20.7 MP back side camera and a 2 mega-pixels front camera. The Motorola DROID Turbo can also capture videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 24 fps, and slow motion videos in (Full HD) (1920x1080) at 30 fps. This camera also features a lot of valuable characteristics like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, face detection shooting, smile detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

Motorola packed this phone with a incredible 5.2" display, and a 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels in the display. This display uses AMOLED capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

The Motorola DROID Turbo includes Wi-Fi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices around, acting as a wireless modem), 4G (LTE) high speed connection type or the fastest 3G connectivity, over HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. The Motorola DROID Turbo works with a Nano SIM card for GSM services and it can use both CDMA and GSM.

This phone also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Navigation, Infrared Port and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone comes with a huge 3900 mAh battery, enough to provide this phone with a marvelous battery life.

Motorola is offering the Motorola DROID Turbo for just 329 dollars, which is really low comparing with similar phones. It doesn't matter whether you need a phone to play games, want a phone for work, need a phone to mostly use social networks or love photography, this phone is a great option for you.
