Motorola Droid Turbo gets official with whopping 48-hour battery lifeBy Shawn Knight 14 comments
If you're a road warrior with a penchant for great battery life but don't want to sacrifice performance to get it, Motorola's new Droid Turbo could be the smartphone you've been dreaming of.
The Motorola Droid Turbo features a 5.2-inch display operating at a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 (Quad HD) which works out to an impressive pixel density of 565 pixels per inch. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chip clocked at 2.7GHz that's mated with 3GB of RAM and your choice of 32GB or 64GB of internal flash storage.
Around back is a 21-megapixel camera that can capture 4K video while a massive 3,900mAh battery can keep the party going for up to 48 hours on a single charge, Motorola and Verizon claim. Reviewers will no doubt be looking to put that to the test in the coming days and weeks.
The XLTE-ready handset will also ship with Motorola's Turbo Charger which can provide up to eight hours of usage from a 15 minute charge given the right circumstances. It'll ship with a pure version of Android 4.4.4 KitKat with just a few Moto features on top.
With the Nexus 6, revised Moto X and now the Droid Turbo, Motorola has a seriously stacked stable of smartphones heading into the holiday season. Those in the market for a high-end Android handset certainly have a wealthy of options to choose from.
The Droid Turbo will be available as of October 30 starting at $199 with a two-year service agreement.
