Motorola Droid Turbo is a souped-up Moto X
So, the Motorola Moto X not quite powerful enough for you, squire? Then maybe you should consider the company’s latest smartphone, the all-new Motorola Droid Turbo. It’s essentially a Moto X on steroids.
Where to start? Well, there’s a 5.2in AMOLED screen with a 2560 x 1440 resolution (565ppi), a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 2.7GHz and 3GB of RAM. It comes with 32GB of storage, except for the premium Black Ballistic Nylon model which offers 64GB.

Don't expect the Moto Droid Turbo in the UK any time soon
The Droid Turbo has what Motorola describes as “the largest battery of any smartphone”, giving it a claimed two full days of normal use on a single charge. It’s also quick-charging, with a 15-minute boost giving it eight hours of life.
The rear-facing camera sports a 21MP sensor, f/2.0 aperture, dual LED flash and 4K video capture, and there’s a 2MP front-facer too.
There are three finishes available: high-end Black Ballistic Nylon; and “metalised” Kevlar in either black or red. All models have a water-repellant nanocoating to ward off raindrops and splashes (they’re not fully waterproof, so don’t go dunking them in the bath).
The Motorola Droid Turbo looks fantastic on paper, doesn’t it? But before you reach for your credit card, you should know that the phone is currently exclusive to US network Verizon, and there are no indications of when, if ever, it’ll make its way to the UK. Bummer.
