Seidio's SURFACE case for the Droid Turbo is one of the only cases out there that actively works to exist between bulky impenetrability and overly flexible jelly. What's more, it's packing a kickstand that generally stays out of the way.

Most weather apps come with radar, but it can leave something to be desired, especially for those who are a little more dependent on the weather's wicked wiles. For storm chasers, meteorologists, and weather enthusiasts looking for more advanced radar on their Android devices, we've looked through the cream of the crop with KXXV-TV Meteorologist Conley Isom and we've arrived at the best three for your Android.
