Motorola DROID Turbo vs Google Nexus 6 vs Apple iPhone 6: specs comparison

Motorola DROID Turbo vs Google Nexus 6 vs Apple iPhone 6: specs comparison
The Verizon-exclusive Motorola DROID Turbo is already here, and it is among the most power-laden devices on paper at the moment. Packing arguably one of the best hardware combinations available at the moment, the natural habitat of the DROID Turbo is somewhere near the very top of Mount Android, thanks to the 5.2-inch Quad HD display, the 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805, the 3GB of RAM, the 21MP rear snapper, and the large, "two-day" 3,900mAh battery inside. A true powerhouse indeed, but still, we have to compare it with the latest crop of devices that debuted over the past two months.

The Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 is one of the latest, hot, and most-anticipated devices that will undoubtedly clash with the new DROID Turbo. Undoubtedly, there will be a bloody battle for the throne in the stock Android segment, as Motorola seemingly outdid what it had accomplished with the Nexus 6 that it made for Google - the Motorola packs the same range of hardware and even more in a more compact offering. Without a shadow of a doubt, late 2014 can't get more exciting for the average devotee of vanilla Android.

Check out our improvised specs showdown between the DROID Turbo and the Nexus 6. Oh, we've also thrown in an Apple iPhone 6 for a good measure.
