DROID Turbo Review

DROID Turbo Review

This past week and a half we've been working with the DROID Turbo non-stop. With a body that replicates the popular DROID series from last year - this time in bright red - a massive battery, and specifications that match or surpass the Moto X 2014, what's not to love?

Android Lollipop seen with Moto X “Active Display” feature

It will still be a few weeks before we see Android 5.0 in its final form, but the developer preview of Android Lollipop has already gone out and has led to some rather interesting discoveries.
