Buying a Motorola Droid Turbo can get you a $150 gift card at Best Buy
Not long ago, Best Buy started selling a blue version of Verizon’s Motorola Droid Turbo for $199 on contract (the same price that’s asked by Verizon). Now, Best Buy is offering a $150 gift card to customers who are getting the Droid Turbo with a new 2-year contract agreement, and a $100 gift card to those who opt for a 2-year upgrade. The deal is valid until this Saturday (December 13), and includes not just the blue variant of the handset, but also the black one.

Released at the end of October, the Droid Turbo is available in the US only on Verizon. It’s one of Motorola’s latest high-end smartphones, featuring a 5.2-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels and a 565 ppi density, a 21 MP rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7 GHz. The Turbo also includes a massive 3900 mAh battery. Make sure to read our Motorola Droid Turbo review to find out more about the smartphone.

The Droid Turbo is also available outside of the US, under the name of Motorola Moto Maxx. However, you can only get it in select Latin American markets, and Motorola didn’t say if it’s going to launch it elsewhere.

The red version is probably one of the best phones I've ever seen.

Damn, I'd love to have this phone... unfortunately, no Droid Turbo (as Moto Maxx) for Europe, and, what is my personal matter, it's too big... too bad, they haven't designed a smaller version this time... 4,7" would be perfect. :/

It's a chunky phone. It needs a slimmer form factor.

Chunky compared to many phones on the market today? Yes. Chunky to the point it is ugly, looks fat, and is cumbersome in the hand? Not at all. I have this phone and it has a nice feel and size to it, it is perfect for my hands. It may be thicker than other phones but it has a massive 3900mAh battery which gets me thru a full day and then some with heavy use. I wish I could go back to the days where I used slimmer phones (like the droid razr) bc they looked nice and slapped the hell outta myself. Do yourself a favor people, get a phone with a decently big juicer in it, best choice regarding smartphones I ever made.

Apple should take notes from Motorola and start giving their customers phones with a respectable battery in them.

I'll take a slim form factor with a good battery over a chunky phone with with A bigger battery.

But the thing is the Turbo isn't that bad in the hand. In fact I would prefer it over the 6 due to the larger size battery and good feel in the hand. The 6 is a little too thin for my taste.

I would rather have a phone that lasts a long time than a phone that's structurally weak enough to bend in your pocket and be stuck hugging a wall all day long. Besides, the Droid Turbo is not that thick.
