This fall I had the chance to take a look at two of the most popular Android phones on the market and compare how well each of them performed compared to each other. The response to that was overwhelmingly positive. So to follow up with that today I will be taking a look at another pair of flagship Android phones, this time the Droid Turbo and the latest version of the MotoX. While both phones have a lot of similarities, a lot of you might still be wondering which phone is best for you. Today I’m going to run through their features, performance, and find out if one or the other stands out from the crowd.

The weave looks very nice in my opinion and, as you can see, unlike the 32gb version there is a lack of the obnoxious Verizon V branding on the back giving the phone an overall sleeker appearance.

The biggest drawback for me on the Turbo was no SD card expansion. I ended up getting the 64gb version and have curbed my music hoarding. I'll put some photos of mine up in a later post.

One thing of note that I think you went over quickly was the larger charger the Turbo comes with. This is actually a power supply in addition to being a USB-AC adapter (which make it larger) This, of course increases its amp output substantially and charges things even faster than a 3.0 SuperSpeed port would (0-full charge on my tablet in about 20mins, 0-full charge on the turbo in about 40mins.) Sure it may not consolidate on size but it is an amazing addition to the retail package as the charger sold separately retails for $35.
