Missed your chance to place a pre-order for Google's Nexus 6 smartphone? You're not alone -- the device sold out in a matter of minutes with no option to get in line when Google replenishes its inventory. That's either a bummer or a blessing in disguise if you're willing to consider alternative options such as Motorola's nifty Droid Turbo.

The Droid Turbo is now available at Verizon for $200 with a 2-year service agreement, $25 per month on Verizon Edge, or $600 if you want to own the phone outright. Like the Nexus 6, the Droid Turbo carries a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor under the hood. In fact, these two devices feature similar specs across the board with just a few key differences.

Motorola Droid Turbo

One of those is screen size. Whereas the Nexus 6 offers 5.96 inches of display real estate with a 2560x1440 resolution (493 ppi), the Droid Turbo is a little smaller at 5.2 inches, though with the same resolution resulting in a tighter pixel density (565 ppi).

The other key differences are software (the Nexus 6 comes out of the gate with Android 5.0 Lollipop, while the Droid Turbo runs Android 4.4 KitKat for the time being) and battery. Motorola's Droid Turbo not only sports a bigger capacity battery (3900 mAh versus 3220 mAh) for up to 48 hours of run time, it also features a quick-charge function that gets you up to 8 hours of power in just 15 minutes.

Enough with the one-on-one comparisons, the point is the Droid Turbo can hold its own next to the Nexus 6. For good measure, let's round out the feature-set by mentioning the 3GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage (64GB available on the Black Ballistic Nylon model), 21MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, front-ported speakers, and various other odds and ends.

If you're interested, head over to Verizon. And if not, hang tight -- we hear the Nexus 6 will back at Google Play soon.

Ryan Riopel this looks like what you're looking for. Dat Turbo charge feature doh


I'd buy it right now if it was available


WHAT. 8 hours of runtime in 15 minutes? that's absurd. I'm a little bit mad knowing that's possible


I own the turbo and it's amazing. I bought it Saturday morning near 9:30...I have been using it a ton. I still have not needed to charge it. It's finally at like 32% battery. I haven't even need to try the new Turbo Charge function . The Camera takes gorgeous photos. It's very very VERY FAST!

I think the Droid Turbo is my next phone. My Moto X (gen 1) doesn't have the battery life I need. Looking for Droid Turbo giveaways this season. Let me know if you see any.


WHAT. 8 hours of runtime in 15 minutes? that's absurd. I'm a little bit mad knowing that's possible

From my understanding the charger the Droid Turbo uses has like 4 or 5 different charging rates and changes its amperage as it sees fit. its only going to charge fast with its own charger not from a USB port, a wireless QI charger or via another ac adapter.

Sweet! Definitely getting this one soon!
