This is the Motorola Droid Turbo

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

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.

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.

We've already seen much of what's to come in the Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo thanks to some marketing leaks (you can see the full Droid Turbo specs as we currently know them), but this weekend we're getting one of our best looks at the upcoming phone in proper physical form thanks to Motofirmware — and in its full retail duds at that.

Along with a great look at the phone itself, we get confirmation that it'll ship with the Motorola Turbo Charger, which quickly gets a dead phone to a partial charge.

The Droid Landing countdown ends on Tuesday. We're in New York City on Tuesday. Stay tuned.

The Verizon Xperia Z3v video review

We're not quite done with the Verizon Sony Xperia Z3v just yet. You've already seen our complete written Z3v review. But do yourself a favor and spare us 3 minutes for our video review. The short take? Verizon's got a decent phone here in terms of specs and features, but we just can't get over the ho-hum design that it stayed with when it shunned the proper Z3.

It's a mystery, or something. Enjoy.
