Motorola Droid Turbo

Verizon's latest two-day phone looks solid and beefs up the Android experience

Behold, the Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo. We've spent a few brief minutes with this guy in New York City today, and can sum it up thusly: If you're looking for a relatively stock Android experience on Verizon, and if some serious battery life is important to you, and if you want good storage options, and if you want a phone that looks as good as it feels ...

Well, you need to take a serious look at this Motorola Droid Turbo.

And so we shall take a look now.

Verizon announces the Motorola Droid Turbo!

Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo

Massive battery, Kevlar or ballistic fiber, and available Oct. 30 starting at $199 on contract

And with that, the heavily leaked Motorola Droid Turbo is official. As we foretold, the Droid Ultra ramps things up from what we saw in the new Moto X. It keeps the 5.2-inch display, but cranks up the resolution to Quad-HD, or 2560 x 1440, and it improves on the internals, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor. You'll find 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM. And you'll find a huge 3,900 mAh battery (plus wireless charging), all tucked into a Kevlar-backed design, or a ballistic fiber, if you prefer.

Plus a 21-megapixel rear camera.

If the Moto X just didn't quite do it for you, well ...

Droid Turbo pops up on Verizon.com's testing page… seems all but official now

61

We've seen all sorts of leaks and teases and weird videos leading up to today's expected reveal of the Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo, but this morning Verizon's public website testing page let loose a "Coming soon: Droid Turbo" image. There's not much of anything about this banner we haven't learned before, mentioning the phone's "up to 48-hour battery life a 2.7 GHz quad-core processor." No price, no release date, just Droid. It links to the Droid countdown page, which leaves us with but a few hours until the expected public unveiling of the newest and most powerful Droid yet.

Creepy James Franco gives us another peek at the Motorola Droid Turbo

30

Droid Landing, the twitter page for all things Droid branded, has been up to some shenanigans today — the most recent of which features James Franco riding a bike on a street as his friends try to record him using their phone. Franco pops out of frame, then reappears suddenly, whips out what looks to be a Droid Turbo, snaps a photo, and disappears down the street in the blink of an eye. The message here is clear: your phone is slow and the Turbo is, well, turbo.

LG G3 Vigor review

40
G3 Vigor

Meet the G3's little brother

We imagine LG is feeling pretty good about themselves as of late. Their last few Android phones and tablets have received critical acclaim, and even if they aren't topping the sales charts just yet the name is out there and people are starting to equate it with "really good Android phones". We're not going to argue, as pretty much all of us here at AC think the Nexus 5, the LG G2 and the LG G3 were fantastic phones.

Of course, you'll also want to capitalize on the success of your popular models, and the introduction of the LG G3 Vigor — a smaller, more base-model (read: inexpensive) phone carrying much of the same look and feel of the flagship whose name it carries makes perfect sense.

Lets have a look at the G3 Vigor, and see how it measures up.
