Of all the handsets Motorola has released throughout the years, this is probably the most bittersweet of them all. The once Google-owned company has recently announced its most high-end smartphone yet, and a lot of people have already gone online and search for any Motorola Droid Turbo review articles that can justify their craving to get it.
For starters, it boasts a 5.2-inch display with QHD or 2K (2560 x 1440) resolution, 3GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 805 chipset from Qualcomm, and a whopping 21MP Sony-made sensor at the back. Unfortunately, that is where the problems begin. The Droid Turbo has the popular Droid branding from Verizon, and that alone means that the smartphone will be exclusive for the US carrier. That was also the case with previous Motorola Droids released over the past few years.
No matter how high-end or great the smartphone is, (in the case of Motorola, battery life is almost always exemplary) interested buyers would not be able to get the phone if they’re not Verizon subscribers. But there is the Moto Maxx right? Yes, the Motorola Moto Maxx is the Droid Turbo which has recently been released for another market, Brazil and other South American countries. Unfortunately, in spite its seemingly promising release to the international market as well, it appears the device will be exclusive to its target market. A recent report from Motorola France said that the Moto Maxx will not be making its way to France, and other EU markets for that matter. So right now, the only people who can buy this high-end device are those from Verizon, and those living in Brazil and South America. With this kind of setup, Motorola may never fully benefit from the potential success of its best creation yet.
