Great display thats big and bright. Low on punch.

Cyberbear has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

Out of the box you notice the screen size yet it fits nicely in the hand. It boots up and the display is even more impressive. Nice large icons on a bright screen powered my a mostly vanilla Android. The camera takes outstanding pictures that can hang with the more expensive devices.Navigating through the OS and loading your favorite apps are a breeze. It about here you notice why its the Turbos little brother. The 16 gb on the base model is a bit low for the modern device, considering how much room the OS claims as its own right from the start. Secondly it appears your newer games are a bit sluggish. A pass through on Quadrant confirms those suspicions, as the lower clocked 8 core CPU just doesn't have the punch that you would expect with a Droid branded device. To alleviate the storage woes, Android 6.01 will allow you to adopt memory and treat as internal storage. I did so with a Samsung EVO 32 gb card (my first was an overseas knock off and it wasnt fast enough) and was pleasantly surprised. For business this is a great device that will get you through your work day and allow you to grab some really nice pics along the way. However if you play higher end games, you may wanna grab the Turbo 2.

Pretty standard. Nothing to see here folks. Bigger screen does allow for bigger fingers if you consider that a plus.
