    Motorola Droid Turbo review | The Verge

    I like pretty phones, and I don't think the turbo is pretty, so buy a moto x
    One of poorer written tech reviews I have read in a while.

    I can't disagree with anything he said about the design of the phone. When compared to the X, the Turbo is honestly not a very "attractive" phone. Some people like the Droid design some don't. As someone who has used both phones, I agree with a lot of what he said

    Can't see a lot of fault in the review. But battery is important to me, so the Moto X is out

    Hi review is legit from his perspective.

    I personally I'm find with the design, don't mind it being bulkier and heavier because of the battery. I can't tell the different between 1080p vs 4K either so I wish they had stuck with 1080p so battery life can last even longer.

    Being that it's almost stock android give it an edge over the Note 4 for me.

    Its odd that the general consensus is that the phone is unattractive, I suppose I personally favor utilitarian design approaches

    Same here actually. I love the look of this phone, and I love even more the feel of it. And with all the wood peeling problems of the X I've been reading about, my main draw is out the window.

    It could look like a brick so long as it performs and functions as it should. I'm all about the battery life - it's not like anyone is gain anything over a "pretty" phone.

    If I was getting a moto x 2nd gen and there was a ballistic nylon option.. I would 100% opt for it

    That's not even the dumbest review I've read for the Turbo.

    A girl on Business Insider gave the Turbo and its camera a glowing review, which is great and all. But when I got to the statement (paraphrasing) "but it's not the number of megapixels that matter but the SIZE of the megapixels that matter." 😄 That's when I realized I should never read tech reviews from that young lady or website ever again...

    What the Hell is so bad about it anyway? All phones are 95% the same anyway. His comment is nitpicky.

    That was about as bad as the LiveLeak review of the Moto 360? There was a woman reviewing the 360 but couldn't stop talking about Apple. She could've at least tried to hide her bias.

    I like the way this phone looks. I don't see how it's ugly, or how it's that much different than a moto x.

    When it comes down to it, though, it's all about opinion.

    The Moto X is a gorgeous device... but the Droid Turbo is equally attractive, in its own way.

    It's like comparing Adriana Lima to Kate Upton. They're both great, yet different.

    Too funny! I have (and love) a Moto X but the Turbo is a great phone and a better choice for some folks. I'm lucky and have really good battery life with my X but totally get the appeal of the larger battery on the Turbo.

    Kate Uptons batteries are made from artificial polymers, but they definitely command good reviews. :P

    This review is terrible. He must dislike Verizon. I have read a ton of reviews on this device, but this is the most negative by far.

    And none of his comments make sense. Other than just liking the physical design of the X better, it is basically the same phone with better specs.

    Part of me understands where he's coming from. Imagine if the turbo had been the same specs as the Moto X but with just the larger battery? I bet the battery truly would have lasted 48 hours for almost everybody. Instead they've made a device with screen resolution that's way higher than necessary, requiring a faster processor just to keep up pushing pixels to it, negating the extra power in the device, as well as reducing what that large battery could have done.

    This phone would have been better, I think, with a 1080p display. Extra pixels aren't giving anybody anything necessary.

    OK, that said, anybody who buys a phone just because it's beautiful gets the phone they deserve. I don't feel like carrying an extra external charger with me everywhere, so the Moto X just isn't for me. A beautiful phone that stopped working at 5 pm is useless to me the rest of the day. And the turbo is not as ugly as he makes it out to be.

    The Verge hates Verizon, so they'll always find something to pan about their exclusive device. He found a bunch of silly things this time.

    This review was garbage. Critiques like "It looks like a phone." Really? That's a pretty deep observation for a phone review. Also, I understand that Verizon exclusivity is lame, but it shouldn't impact how a device is reviewed. Imagine a game review on a XBox or PS4 exclusive title being slammed because it isn't released on the other platforms.

    Ridiculous I say. The Verge is garbage.
