Motorola DROID Turbo vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs LG G3: specs comparison

Motorola DROID Turbo vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs LG G3: specs comparison
The super pixel-dense Quad HD displays are quickly becoming the go-to choice in the highest tier of Android devices. The first among the well-known smartphone manufacturers to employ this new top-of-the-line display technology was LG with its G3. The rest of the gang followed suit and we got treated to a whole bunch of Quad HD-toting handsets, like the S Pen-toting Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the ginormous Google Nexus 6. Well, we have a new kid on the Quad HD block, as the just-unveiled Motorola DROID Turbo is the latest Android monster with an extremely pixel-dense display in store. 

Being one of the most compact devices to employ this display tech, the fresh DROID goodness has an extremely high pixel density, only rivaled by a not-so-popular version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A. Well, the latter is not widely-available, so we determined that we'll compare the new Motorola with the two most popular Quad HD phones available at the moment, the Galaxy Note 4 and the LG G3 that we spoke of earlier. Undoubtedly, the battle will be nothing short of fierce one, because all three contenders have pretty well-endowed specs sheets.
