Prices and conclusions Motorola Droid Turbo vs Moto X 2014
If you’ve read through all of this, in-depth comparison, you must be tired. Getting to the point now. The Moto X 2014 price is lower than the Droid Turbo price, which you have probably deduced yourself by now. In the U.S., an unlocked Moto X 2014 will set you back around $480 for the 16 GB variant, which means you’re going to have to add $50 more for the 32 GB variant. The Droid Turbo price goes up to $600 for the 32 GB version and $650 for the 64 GB version at Verizon Wireless. That’s not such a huge price bump, so it would definitely be worth the investment, because with the Droid Turbo, you get a more durable phone with more power under the hood.
The only relevant downside of the Droid Turbo is that it’s a Verizon exclusive release. The Moto X 2014 on the other hand can be bought with any U.S. carrier and unlocked, which might be a better option for most. Verizon is not the favorite when it comes to smartphones, because it’s more expensive and slow to roll updates out. It’s up to you. I would recommend the Moto X 2014 for someone who likes a lightweight phone, with a premium feel and powerful innards, not to mention near-stock Android. The Droid Turbo is a more durable device, though, which has its own way of looking and feeling like the premium option. At the same time, the Droid Turbo is a more powerful smartphone with a more powerful camera that can become really good once Android Lollipop hits. Software can do wonders when the hardware is modern enough, so there’s definitely room for improvement.
No matter which Motorola flagship you choose, success is pretty much guaranteed. The Moto X and Motorola Droid Turbo are two of the best releases of 2014, and with good reason. The number of positive reviews greatly outnumbers the bad reviews, which is always a good sign when it comes to smartphones. Remember to always test the phone out before actually purchasing, and doing your own research, reading some reviews, watching some Youtube videos demonstrating the features and so on. These small, yet time-consuming steps make a real difference for the user experience, so always be smart about your money.
