Would you get the Motorola DROID Turbo instead of another flagship smartphone?
Motorola and Verizon is a combination that could have only possible outcome - an epic Android smartphone. The Motorola Droid phones, rare as they be, are the Alienwares of Android devices. They have that hyped, aggressive "gamer" look, and the specs to match. The latest addition to the line-up is the freshly announced Motorola DROID Turbo. It is exactly what you'd expect it to be. 

For starters, it's full to the brim with the most potent of 2014's smartphone hardware - the sharpest screen on the market, an immense 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB RAM, a monster 21MP main camera, and a battery you can charge in just 15 minutes for up to 8 hours of usage. 

Impressed already? There's more where that came from. The Motorola DROID Turbo is built of extra-durable materials - a triple treat of metallized glass fiber, kevlar, and water-resistant coating - that is just as tough as it looks. The icing on the cake are the Moto App functions - the Moto Voice assistant, Moto Actions gesture control, and Moto Display for smart notifications.

2014 was an year of amazing devices, which means you've probably chosen yours already. Then again, it's almost time for Christmas! And the Moto DROID Turbo is hot - it is the most tricked-out Android smartphone ever. Would you like to have that, or you're more attracted to other respectable smartphone contenders from, say, Apple, Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG, Huawei, Nokia?

If they made it available for other countries, then I would get this over the nexus 6. Considering Motorola's track record lately. It will get the latest Android updates in a very timely manner.

Hey wait a minute! I've been looking, and it has all the bands that would support T-mobile except 1700/2100 hspa+ and lte band 2! And since all Verizon LTE phones are unlocked.... :D

Moto isnt exclusive to Verizon, but their "best" phones seem to be. Even since the Droid 1...Moto has been Verizon's baby.

The Droid line is exclusive to Verizon because they licensed the trademark from Lucas Films. The best Motorola phones are Droid, and thus exclusive to Verizon, because Verizon bribes Motorola.

The original Motorola Droid was Verizon's answer to the then AT&T only iPhone. It was the first "super" Android smartphone. Motorola and Verizon have kept at it annually ever since. Why not? It's been a successful partnership. Other carriers still get excellent Motorola hardware (Nexus 6, Moto X, etc.). I have no problem with Verizon having it's "own" Droid line. The exclusivity problem comes when an international phone (like the Samsung Galaxy Alpha) gets exclusive to one carrier. That's a PROBLEM!

If there's a 64 bit DROID Turbo 2 next year I would hope so. Hands down the most attractive device of 2014 for me. There just ISN'T a more complete package on the US market. Unfortunately it seems that Motorola has shifted from last year's focus on the Moto X line to focus on the DROID line. Last year's DROIDs fell behind the Moto X because of their lack of customization. This year the Moto X looks like pure S*** compared to the DROID Turbo. Depressing.
