Motorola Droid Turbo: all the new features
The Motorola Droid Turbo for Verizon Wireless has just gone official, and it's a remarkable device: it has the sharpest display of any smartphone from a first-tier manufacturer with pixel density of the amazing 565ppi, plus it is jam-packed with cutting-edge silicon.

Under the hood, the Droid Turbo has the Snapdragon 805 system chip roaring as its main engine, while in terms of photographic capabilities, we're looking at a massive, 20-megapixel camera. Add to this that the body of the phone itself is extremely sturdy, featuring a Kevlar-made back, the Droid Turbo does indeed shape up to be quite the powerful device.

What are all the new features that you can expect in the Droid Turbo, though? We look at the 10 most impressive new features of the Droid Turbo right below.

Damn, now put Windows Phone on this thing and I would drop everything I'm doing to go buy one.

Why not Android? + Why Windows Phone?

Just preference. I love Motorola's hardware, focus on battery and form factor, etc., but I find Windows Phone to be better from a usability standpoint for my needs. As far as Android goes, Moto's UI is super smooth, but also fairly uninspired. Just don't enjoy using it as much, although I do like Android for the availability of apps. P.S.: Thanks for asking a sincere question rather than just providing offhanded commentary like Spedez below.

It is a Nexus 6, minus the size, 21MP camera & timely Google updates!

Only thing missing is a 64 bit chipset.

Don't worry, 2015 is the year of the 64Bit chipsets. 2014 is when we say bye to the 32Bit era!

consumers will not be able to discern any diff between the number of bits on the chipset

Might be minimal sure, but I like the peace of mind with specs. 32 -> 64 bit

Quite impressive. Much better than Moto X and a good competitor for Nexus 6 - the two are closely matched. I prefer Droid Turbo to Nexus 6 because it is smaller - a 5.2" screen is the perfect size for a device with no stylus.

Great phone ruined by Verizon. Verizon is a great network, but the droid line up gets terrible Verizon bloatware and slow upgrades.

? The Moto X on Verizon is very light and smooth compared to other Androids in terms of bloatware. It also gets updates quite quickly, almost to the point of being on par with Nexus devices. If anything, the Moto Droid lineup is the BEST option on Verizon in terms of less bloatware and faster updates.

Hey PA, It's not the sharpest. Sharpest one is the Galaxy S5 LTE-A AKA prime which has QHD on 5.1 inch display
