The Moto X (2014)
was one of the best phones Motorola ever made ... well, at least until it released the Droid Turbo
just a few weeks later. So which one makes the most sense? Read on, as Gizmag goes hands-on to compare the 2nd-gen Moto X and Droid Turbo.
When it was first announced last month, Motorola's Droid Turbo
sure looked like one of the most muscular smartphones yet. Since then, Gizmag has had a chance to test one out to see if this beefed up Moto X
lives up to expectations.
The Droid Turbo with its monster specs follows the unveiling of the Moto 360 smartwatch, new Moto X and Moto G and a Motorola-made Nexus 6 that have all been introduced in the past 8 weeks.
Today Motorola and US carrier Verizon rekindled their old romance, releasing three new phones under the Droid
brand. We have the Droid Ultra, a high-end phone with a razor-thin build (but no Razr branding). Then we have the Droid Mini, which offers a smaller form factor without skimping much on quality. The one that really turned our heads, though, was the Droid Maxx, with an advertised battery life of 48 hours
. Let's put it side-by-side with the Samsung Galaxy S4
, and see how they compare.
After reviving the Razr brand last year from a flip-phone graveyard, Motorola has tweaked its formula with two proper sequels. The Razr HD and Razr HD Maxx
(accompanied by the Droid moniker in the U.S.) aren't exactly true to their names, as they're both beefier than their predecessors. How do these more balanced handsets stack up next to Samsung's Android-leading Galaxy S III?
