Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition – An Unexpected Boost

1

Motorola only recently came out with the latest generation Moto G, and it has not taken long for customers to experience this successful product with even better features.

Display

A major update has come about in the display department where the Moto G Turbo Edition uses a 1080p screen instead of the 720p resolution. Since this is achieved without increasing the display size from 5 inches, the Moto G Turbo Edition has significantly boosted its pixel density numbers. It is now just shy of 450 PPI, which makes for a very good reading indeed.

Performance

The Moto G Turbo Edition is amongst the first devices to run on the Android 6.0 operating system. Even though Android may have relaxed its processor requirements compared to previous generations, it still makes a lot of difference if the phone has a powerful processor. Aware of this need, the Moto G Turbo Edition is equipped with a newSnapdragon 615 processor. It is faster than the normal Moto G’s processor while it is also assisted by 2 GB of RAM as standard. Unlike the normal Moto G, there are no variations of RAM since there is just one version of the Moto G Turbo Edition on sale.

Many have been skeptical about the 2470 mAh battery that needs to power this large screen and a powerful processor. Keen to remove any doubts, the Moto G Turbo Edition is equipped with fast charging capabilities like many other devices of late. Since the battery is non-removable, this feature comes as a saving grace.

Camera

The rear 13-megapixel camera is excellent for a phone in this price range partly because of its high detailing capabilities and partly because of its features. Motorola has equipped this camera with aspects like dual LED flash, autofocus, and face detection. Even though the camera lacks the ability to shoot 4K videos, it more than makes up for it by having a secondary five-megapixel camera in the front. This enables the phone to have excellent video conferencing capabilities and selfies.

The disadvantages of the Moto G Turbo Edition might be the design. The phone is a rather 11.9 mm thick on the sides, which is disappointing considering most smartphones are very thin. Prices of the Moto G Turbo Edition will cost around $285, which is slightly more than the normal version.
