Nylon up close

The nylon weave on the black Turbo's backing sure looks cool, but feels a bit more slippery than expected. It won't amass any visible fingerprints, but it might make you wonder where all that finger grease is going.

Cherry red Kevlar

On the other hand, the red Kevlar-vested option has a neat holographic effect on its also-smooth backing that mimics the nylon weave.

Full-throttle specs

With a 5.2-inch 1,440p HD display and a 2-,7-megapixel camera, the Turbo is ready to blow past the competition. Its high-capacity 3,900mAh battery and quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor give it some top-notch guts.
