The screen is 5.2 inches with just enough resolution of 1440×2560 pixels which provides a brilliant 565 ppi pixel density. To make the resolution sharper they have used an AMOLED Quad HD display and there is also a covering of Corning Gorilla Glass on the display for protection. Motorola seems to have got everything right in terms of display. The sharpness and quality of images is just amazing.

The glass is also coated with water resistant Nano particles. It does not provide great resistance but what it does do is protect it from drops or drizzles of water. This is a step towards the water resistant technology which is not seen in many of the Micromax models. Maybe one day it will get better than Sony the trademark brand for water resistance.


The Moto Turbo looks different from other makes. It has rounded corners and quite thin in the edges. The only thickness that can be found is from the curved back. It weighs roughly about 166g which feels fine on the hand.

One thing that sets it apart from the others is the textured back which is called the Ballistic Nylon. The Ballistic Nylon has better grip than the Kevlar based Red back cover which could be found in DROID Turbo model. They made the perfect choice of going with the Ballistic Nylon version for this phone. It also gives a good look to the phone. It also offers above average durability

Turbo Charger:

The box contains earphones, handset and a Turbo charger. The Turbo charger claims to give 7 hours of power with just 15 minutes of charging.

Battery Backup Life:

Battery backup has become a major issue with the upcoming smart phones. The battery is 3900 mAh which is a powerhouse that can last for easily for a day. But the QHD display might use up most of it as it requires great amount of energy to run on hence the maximum time the phone can last with heavy usage is 14 hours at the best. The battery is its main selling point as no high end phone in this range offers such an exquisite battery.


The 2.7 GHz Quad core processor with a 3GB RAM provides a powerful yet pleasant performance to the user. The processor races like a horse keep the Quad HD display going without any lags.

Coming to the main aspect of the phone, the camera, the Moto Turbo proudly carries a 21-Megapixel Sony primary camera and a 2MP secondary camera. There is nothing to complain about the image quality; both outdoor and indoor shots are amazing and incomparable to that of any other phone in the same price range.

The camera also comes in a package with other exciting features like auto HDR mode, Panorama mode, tap focus, slow motion video and burst mode. To adjust the quality of low-light imaging, the rear camera comes with a dual-LED flash which comes in pretty handy.

4K videos:

The phone also lets you record 4K videos at 24 frames per second which is the ultra HD mode.

Internal storage:

The phone is having 64GB internal storage space. We think Motorola has been very generous with this.
