Expert Review

Motorola’s Droid Turbo touts its speed as its main selling point (in this case, a 2.7Ghz processor ties everything together) but what’s not so apparent is the real-world appeal of the device. Modern smartphones are made of glass, metal (or sometimes plastic) and a whole lot of anxiety. However, this phone is very well equipped against the knocks, bumps and spills that most people encounter on a daily basis.

The Droid Turbo is made from Kevlar (the stuff commonly used to stops bullet) and "metallized glass fiber". Additionally, the 5.2 inch screen is protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass 3, the latest version of the hardened glass. Sure, you could use a case, but if the design of a phone was its selling point then you’re essentially getting something different than what you paid for. Or you could go without a case and worry about the (inevitable) slip of the hand that means a dented phone or, worse, a broken screen.

The Droid Turbo features a 21 megapixel camera that shoots video in 4K and the device comes with 32GB of storage (loaded with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box). This phone connects to cellular networks using the LTE standard and its WIFI radio is compatible with 802.11 b/g/n/ac. The device’s battery also boasts a 48 hour charge, with an 8 hour charge after 15 minutes of being plugged into a wall in addition to featuring wireless charging.Rating: 4.75/5
