Motorola DROID Turbo 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note5 vs Apple iPhone 6s Plus: specs comparison

7

We have a duo of brand new Motorola devices on the block and both of them have more than enough compelling new features to keep our attention. Well, the beefier new device is the DROID Turbo 2 and this can't be argued. Equipped with beefier internals than the DROID Maxx 2, the Turbo 2 has a 5.4-inch AMOLED Quad HD display that is allegedly shatterproof, a Snapdragon 810 chip, 3 gigs of LPDDR4 RAM, a 21MP rear camera, and a large 3,760mAh battery.

A rather well-endowed specs sheet, isn't it? Well, we can't say that it's top-notch, but regardless, it is not too shabby as well! As it's landing on a very saturated market, it will certainly have to clash against a couple of other noteworthy devices residing in the same price class. 

Two of these are the Galaxy Note5 and the iPhone 6s Plus, which can be viewed as the exemplar high-end representatives of Android and iOS, respectively.

Here's how the three stack up against one another.
