Motorola Droid Turbo review

0
Motorola Droid Turbo

Motorola made a phone that challenges its own Moto X on Verizon, and in many ways bests it

Droid. It's the name that arguably kicked off Android's popularity back in 2009 and one we've still yet to completely shake as an inaccurate descriptor of just about every phone running Android. Verizon's marketing machinery is strong, but has thankfully toned back in the last two years to match Motorola's new direction.

Motorola now has an exclusive deal to provide Verizon with a steady stream of "Droid" branded devices for the foreseeable future, and since 2013 it has been bringing its new "less is more" mantra from the Moto X series over to the Droid line. The Motorola Droid Turbo is the 2014 flagship from this Verizon/Motorola tie-up, and the best way to describe it is as a "super" version of the 2014 Moto X.

No spec has gone un-bumped, and no design decision was made without considering how it would exude the "Droid" brand for Verizon. This is a Droid through and through, and one that could easily be considered as the best choice on Verizon today.

Read on for our full review of the Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo.

HTC Desire 820 video walkthrough

6
Desire 820

Back at IFA 2014, HTC unveiled the Desire 820, the latest device to lead its lineup of mid-range handsets. Like its predecessor, the Desire 816, the 820 is built around a 5.5-inch 720p display, however the design's been tightened up with a slimmer profile and new color accents. And the internals have been substantially upgraded too — there's a 64-bit-capable octa-core Snapdragon 615 chip running the show, while RAM and internal storage get bumped up to 2GB and 16GB respectively. We've taken the Desire 820 for a spin, and we're in the process of putting together our full review. For an early look at the device, check out our hands-on video after the break!

More Nexus 6 stock coming each Wednesday, Google says

148
Nexus 6

If you're still wondering how it is Google was able to do another Nexus phone launch without being able to stave off the retail gremlins — that is, keep the things on sale for more than a few minutes — there's hope. An update this afternoon to the Nexus 6 page on Google Play says more are coming on Wednesdays.

We are getting more Nexus 6 devices in stock as soon as possible. To make things simpler for you, we will work to make more devices available each Wednesday and encourage you to visit the site then.

Tomorrow is Wednesday. Get those F5 keys ready, kids.

Thanks, Ryan!
