Let’s see some of the best specs that it has to offer to be a budget phone.
Moto G Turbo Edition Review
There are numerous things to talk about this phone. Let’s start with the basic build quality and then move on to other aspects of the phone and finally on the bottom line whether this phone is worth your money or not.
Design and Build
The design of the phone is made in typical Motorola sense of design. The phone offers the same look and the palm curve feels like the previous phones in the Moto G series. Although it has a plastic body, the feel while holding the phone seems pretty good and offers a good grip over the phone so you don’t have to worry about accessories like a phone cover. You will find the speakers at the top and bottom on the front side of the phone and the volume rockers on the side. The camera and the flash are placed center to the phone just like other Moto devices.
Moto G Turbo Edition has a 5-inch display which is an IPS LCD with capacitive touchscreen. The display is brilliantly capable of producing around 16M colors which are industry standard. As for the display resolution, it is 720×1280 pixels which offer a good display quality.
Software and UI
The phone runs on native Android Lollipop 5.1.1 but can be upgraded to Marshmallow. The UI is like that of the basic Android provided by Google. Motorola smartphones are the first to receive Google software updates so be assured about the software part.
Moto G Turbo Edition rocks a 2GB RAM with the Snapdragon 615 processor which can handle a lot of tasks with ease. It has a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & quad-core 1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and an Adreno 405 GPU for gaming purposes.
The camera is fairly decent with a 13MP rear and 5MP front shooter. It is equipped with a dual tone flash which brings out natural lighting. The camera is great for a phone of this price range.
The performance is very smooth with 2 GB of RAM, however when heavy games or applications are run, the phone might experience some lag. You will be happy to capture stunning photos with its rear camera. Even the selfies look cool when captured through front camera.
Storage and Connectivity
The phone has a 16GB internal storage with an external option of 32GB expandable. All the latest Wi-fi, Bluetooth, and GPS technologies are enabled in the phone which offers smooth connectivity on all fronts.
Battery and Price
The battery is a little disappointing as it has a Li-Ion 2470 mAh battery which can barely provide a day full of battery but it has fast charging so that can help. The Moto G Turbo Edition is priced at a mid range of Rs. 12,499 and is available online at Flipkart and Amazon for you to buy.
What makes people love Moto G Turbo Edition?
- Though it is Android Lollipop, it is upgradable to Marshmallow right out of the box.
- Corning Gorilla Glass 3 ensures a tough display glass which can bear a lot of pressure.
- Fast charging is something many people will love in the device.
What people don’t like about Moto G Turbo Edition?
- The battery is something not many people like and at 2750 mAh, it is fairly disappointing.
- The phone is only available in black and white colors.
The Bottom Line
Overall it’s a pretty good phone for decent use. The specs are fine and the build quality is of Motorola standards. So, if you have a budget of around Rs. 13,000 it makes a good buy. But for heavy gamers and application users, sometimes the phone may offer some lag which can be a bad experience for users. Thus, if you have a normal usage, you can choose the Moto G Turbo Edition hands down.
