Motorola DROID Turbo size comparison: see how the most potent smartphone at the moment fares size-wise
Motorola is on fire and it hasn't ceased to amaze over the past few months. First things first, it got our whole attention with the Moto 360 wearable, then the refreshed Moto X (2014) and Moto G (2014) captivated us with the bang for the buck they had in store, then just two weeks ago all of us got surprised by the Google Nexus 6 behemoth it had made for Google. Nevertheless, the indisputable crème de la crème of its portfolio is, without a shadow of a doubt, the Verizon-exclusive Motorola DROID Turbo powerhouse of a smartphone.

Apart from the drool-inducing hardware specs that depict the most coveted dreams of almost each and every tech-savvy smartphone fan, this new member of Motorola's DROID line seems to be the perfect blend between size, features, and raw power (on paper, that is). We don't want to sound tendentious and one-sided about this powerhouse, but frankly said, there's seems to be virtually no room for criticism here (except for the Verizon exclusiveness, which might be a deal-breaker for some potential adopters that will think twice before they jump in feet first). 

Enough with the specs, however, as we simply have to discuss the size of the Motorola DROID Turbo, too. We've put it next to a whole plethora of 2014's finest for your viewing and size-comparing pleasure. Is the device a perfect combination between head-turning specs and pocket-friendly dimensions?

That is pretty thick. Not a deal breaker by any means though. I need some hands on experience with this phone.

They have to put that chunky battery somewhere. My Maxx is chunkier than other '13 flagships, but it is absolutely worth it for the battery life.

I don't know, the Sony Xperia Z3 is super thin & it has the best battery life out of any phone right now. Lets see how the Motorola Droid Turbo fares...

The Z3 is pretty tall for its (screen) size. And Sony squoze a lot of battery life out in part by (wisely, IMO) choosing to sit out the quad HD game.

No profile pics, so how can you tell...?

Sorry but that thing is huge. Lol The Z3 is close to two days and it's thin as hell.

Those hard buttons will soon look ugly, after the soft ones migrate to circle, rectangle and triangle.

I dunno. At least the back, home, and multitask buttons look like what they do.

10. g2a5b0e unregistered

So, they don't look ugly now, but they will in a week when 5.0 comes out? Sounds legit.

After viewing the side views, I think adding a millimeter or two to the thickness of a smartphone is the way to go, especially when you take into account that it lasts twice as long as the competition.

coming from a die hard Apple fan and iPhone user, this is one beautiful phone! Thickness aside its gorgeous and that superb battery has to go somewhere I suppose, overall looks like a great powerhouse of a phone can't wait to see one in person!
