    Droid Turbo Review: Motorola’s Amped-Up Moto X Excels Where It Counts

    Motorola barely let the 2014 Moto X sink in before announcing essentially a beefed-up version of the same. The Verizon-exclusive Droid Turbo is a Moto X with a better battery and a better camera, but in a package that’s hard to describe as an “improvement” on the original.
