  • The Motorola Droid Turbo is one of the best phones you can pick up at Verizon right now. It has a stunning display, a long-lasting battery, and an impressive camera. However, while it’s water-resistant and Kevlar-coated, that doesn’t make it indestructible, and a decent case is still advisable to add a final protective layer. It can also add a touch of style to a design that’s less alluring than many of the other flagship smartphones on the market today. Here are some of the best Motorola Droid Turbo cases we think you should consider.

    The Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is a sturdy, powerful smartphone, but its huge battery and tough design come with Verizon bloat and an uncertain Android update future.

  • Although the Motorola Droid Turbo's main draw is its battery life, that is only one part of its story. The bigger picture here is the value you get from a phone that's positively jammed with high-end specs and some useful software conveniences.

    Motorola and HTC have both stepped up their game to cater to the selfie-obsessed market by producing quality handsets equipped with impressive cameras. While the HTC Desire Eye is touted as the ultimate selfie phone, the more affordable HTC Desire 816 is likewise capable of producing great images. As for the spec-heavy Motorola Droid Turbo, its powerful battery combined with its advanced features and camera gives it an edge over other devices in the market.

There you have it – a first look at the Motorola Droid Turbo! While maintaining the signature elements of the Droid line, the Droid Turbo is simply out, a Moto X (2014) on steroids, and for the first time, we are actually a little disappointed that this fantastic smartphone is exclusively available only from Verizon Wireless.
