[MUSIC] Hey everybody. I'm Lynn La from CNet. And right now we're gonna take a look at the Motorola Droid Turbo for Verizon Wireless. As a high-end handset, the device is equipped with a bright and sharp 5.2 inch super analog touch screen. This screen has a 2560 by 1440 quad HD resolution, 565 PPI, and Gorilla Glass 3. Inside is Qualcomm's 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor. With an Adreno 420 GPU, the same processor seen in the Google Nexus 6 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The device also has to recase the brand. On the back you'll find a 21 megapixel camera which can record ultra-HD 4K video. And on the front is a two mega pixel shooter that can record 10 ADP video. Now,as a successor to Verizon's long line of joy devices, battery life is a key feature for this phone. The hand-set has a 3.9 amp per hour battery which has a reported usage time of two days. And a standby time of about 28 days. The battery also has quick charge technology and ships with a turbo charger that promises an extra eight hours of usage time after 15 minutes of charging. The phone ships with android 4.4.4 KitKat but it's expected to update to android lollipop soon. As a Motorola phone it has a similar UI to the Moto X and shares some of the same software goodies. Such as Moto Display, Moto Voice, and gesture features. If you're interested, the device comes in two colors and it's available exclusively on Verizon Wireless. [MUSIC] The 32 gig variant starts out at $200.00 with a 2 year contract and $600.00 without. There is no expandable memory, so if you want to jump up to 64 gigs, that will be an extra $50.00 on top of the price I mentioned. Again, I am Lynn and you have been checking out Verizon's Droid Turbo
