Motorola Moto Turbo has started selling in India for 41,999 INR and will serve as a Nexus 6 alternative for those who value smaller and more manageable display size. The handset is same as Moto Maxx or Verizon’s Moto Droid Turbo which was launched last year in US.
Compared to Nexus 6, it packs a larger 3900 mAh battery (vs 3220 mAh) and includes a more detailed camera with more Megapixels (21 MP VS 13 MP). Unlike Nexus 6, the base variant includes 64 GB storage too, while still maintaining all other positives. So if you are willing to live with a slightly smaller display (5.2 Inch vs 5.96 Inch) Moto Turbo has more to offer for a lesser price.
Motorola is using Super AMOLED display this time too, and it’s extremely sharp with 1440 X 2560 QHD resolution amounting to 565 pixels per inches. There is Gorilla Glass 3 protection as well to avoid mild scratches. Moto Turbo is fired by Qualcomm’s 32 bit star 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 with very powerful Adreno420 GPU and 3 GB RAM.
The 21 MP rear camera comes with dual LED flash and wide f2.0 aperture lens and can be used for recording 4K videos. Selfie cam includes a 2 MP sensor. Other features include 4G LTE / 3G, WiFi ac (dual band), Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS, GLONASS and NFC.
It follows the familiar Motorola Design language and comes with a tightly woven cloth ballistic nylon back cover. Thickness varies from 7.8 mm to 10.6 mm and its moderately hefty at 169 grams.
