Everyday Carry: The DROID Turbo by Motorola

The everyday carry is a big topic of conversation and research in our offices, especially as we are always on the go, traveling from city to city, hitting the road for weekend adventures, or a night on the town. And while it is nice to have all our ‘things’ with us, even the items that are deemed necessary, sometimes a few of those objects are there to supplement the downfalls of other necessary tools. For example, right now in my bag I have no less than 3 fully charged external battery chargers, one 6 foot cord, and a backup battery all for my phone alone. Five items to support one device. Now, I know this is a bit excessive, and you are probably thinking the same, which brings me to the point.

It’s time for an upgrade, and not just for my everyday carry, but yours as well. The supplemental batteries are so popular because the technology available just is not keeping up with demand. No longer are phones just phones, but they are computers, cameras, GPS, and awkward-conversation avoidance devices. Often, it has been that you must sacrifice speed and features for power and reliability, which again is not a choice many of us want to make. Luckily though, Motorola has heard my cry for help, and yes, I am taking personal credit for this. You’re welcome.

So what is this fantastic new phone that is going to remove the need for 5 items in my bag? Well, it’s the DROID Turbo by Motorola in Gray Ballistic Nylon. The DROID Turbo is one of the sleekest, most innovative, and best looking phones I have ever seen, and with three different accent color choices – metallic orange, metallic violet and metallic blue – giving you the power to choose a DROID Turbo that represents you. Personally, I like the metallic violet as it just pops out from the case in a classy, unique fashion.


Beyond the looks, the DROID Turbo comes packed the newest, most powerful processor and 48-hour battery, making it a true rarity on the cell phone market for performance and battery life. I can go two days without stopping to recharge or worrying about battery life thanks to the largest battery of any smartphone, and that’s with no compromise on size or functionality. So as I travel from city to city, or head out for a night on the town, I don’t have to worry about always plugging in or missing out on that incredible photo opportunity in front of my because my battery will die that much faster. And while I am the resident photographer, often behind the lens of my full gear, it would be nice to not have to carry the camera with me everywhere, and knowing how the DROID Turbo performs, I won’t need to any more.

Motorola has heard our (my) calls for something better, and they have delivered not just on those wishes, but beyond the wildest expectations. The DROID long ago set the bar high for cell phones, and it is no surprise that this phone takes that standard of quality, performance, and functionality to the next level.
