by Gareth Mankoo

Verizon’s next flagship phone, the Motorola Droid Turbo will be arriving in the US of A today! In addition to being an extremely rugged device, it also packs longer battery life and a generous amount of attention to processing. For starts, the Droid Turbo is made using ballistic nylon and metallized glass fiber for the back panel. The company is confident enough about their phone’s screen by promising a free replacement for the same, during the contract period. On the inside, the Droid Turbo packs a 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM, 21-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and 4K recording and 48-hour battery life. Last but surely more impressively, all these features are backed by the inclusion of the XLTE AWS network by Verizon that promises nearly twice the bandwidth of good old LTE.

It is available in a 32-bit version (metallic black, metallic red, ballistic nylon) for $199 on contract and in a high-end 64-bit ballistic nylon variant that costs $249.
