Verizon launched the Motorola made DROID Turbo earlier in the week and in this age where phones are mini computers the Turbo comes with a standout feature. Leaping from the already impressive spec sheet was a massive 3,900mAh battery, which on paper suggests that the new DROID is going to have stellar battery performance. PhoneArena has discovered that is indeed the case as the Turbo is the best of the best.Motorola says that the juicer in the DROID Turbo is good for 48 hours of mixed use, including some time with the device on standby. PhoneArena conducted a continuously on battery test and found that the Turbo lasted 10 hours and 42 minutes, a full hour more than the second placed Sony Xperia Z3, a device that blew everybody away with its battery performance just last month. As this is a big battery pack, charging it back up will take a little longer than some rivals, but with 126 minutes for a full charge the Turbo still landed respectfully in fourth place. That was just a few minutes longer than the LG G3 and the Galaxy S5, both devices that have significantly smaller batteries. The new Galaxy Note 4 is the current king of this particular test. The DROID Turbo comes with other high end specs such as a 5.2-inch Quad HD screen with a pixel density of 565ppi, while a 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB runs under the hood. As for cameras, there is a 21 megapixel dual LED flash snapper on the rear, beating the 13MP lens found in both the Moto X and Nexus 6. Around front there is a standard 2 megapixel selfie lens. source: PhoneArena
