Moto Turbo:   Tough as they come
Moto Turbo, well-nigh bullet proof!

If you are the sorts that uses Old Spice, rides a Bullet, wears leather gloves and pumps iron every evening, you might want to complete the package by owning the Moto Turbo!
April 6 2015: If you are sick and tired of stylish, but flimsy smart phones and  yearn  for a sturdy, solid piece of hardware that  exudes power and performance, the new Moto Turbo from Motorola (now a Lenovo company) might be a good choice.
Designed using  a casing of ‘ballistic nylon’ --  a material that was used in the flak jackets used by World War II airmen for protection against  flying debris -- the Moto Turbo is  near-bullet resistant and also . water resistant even  in a heavy downpour,  thanks to the nano coating. Ideal for outdoors it  features a 3900 mAh battery that offers up to 48 hours of mixed usage. It also comes with a turbo charger, which claims to power-up within 15 minutes of charging.
The device supports 4K video recording and viewing on its 5.2-inch Quad HD (1440p) display, justifying the massive battery life. The 21 megapixel rear camera is impressive but one fails to understand why the front camera is a meager 2 megapixels.
Weighing about 176 grams, this smart phone is easy to hold and has a good solid grip; as long as you don't try  to hold and operate it with one hand. Keeping this in mind Motorola has incorporated the Moto Voice and Moto Action features, which lets you control the device using voice commands and hand gestures.
Running on Android 5 Lollipop, the Moto Turbo comes with a Snapdragon 805 processor with 2.7 GHz quad-core CPU. It offers 64 GB of internal memory and 3 GB RAM.
It is available on Flipkart for Rs. 41,999, and we believe it’s a good bet just for the battery life and the solid feel of the device.  - V.Sudhakshina
