  1. Performance Like No Other

As touted by Motorola, the biggest USP of Moto G Turbo comes from its power-packed processor. Unlike Moto G (Gen3), the Turbo Edition powers up by an improved Snapdragon 615 Octa-core SoC with four Cortex A-53 cores running at 1.5GHz and other four running at 1.0GHz. Itpairs up with 2GB of RAM, Adreno 405 GPU and delivers smooth and glitch-free performance while running heaviest of the apps and games. It’s the fastest Moto G ever, and is definitely at par with devices like Moto X Play or the HTC Desire 826!

  1. Play as much you want

The upgraded Moto G Turbo offers a lot more than standard budget phones. The dual SIM phone features a 2,470 mAh non removable battery, and incorporates on-of-a kind Turbo Charger for fast charging capabilities. The battery equipped inside the handset gives you sufficient juice for normal usage, but if you’re running out of power, the Turbo Charger comes into play and extends battery life up to 6 hours from just 15-minutes of charging! So, in case you’re one of those who prefer gaming and web-surfing all day long, no other option can give a quick burst of energy, better than Moto G Turbo!

  1. Full Protection from Water and Dust

While Moto G (Gen 3) has beentouted as the cheapest waterproof phone with IPX7 certification, its elder sibling Moto Turbo has now become the most affordablephone to offer both water and dust repellence. The improved Turbo Edition ships with iP67 certification and offers adequate amount of strength to deal with water as well as dust.The highest Ingress Protection (IP) rating in a smartphoneis iP69, and Moto G Turbo does a terrific job by offering slightly less iP67 at a much lower price point. In a nutshell, you can rest assured that your phone won’t slow downeven after an accidental splash of water or falling on the beach!

  1. Superb Camera Performance

Just like Moto G (Gen 3), Moto X Play and Moto X Style, the Turbo Edition also continues Motorola’s good work by offering a superb ecosystem for photography. The Snapdragon 615 powered device incorporates the same 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing snapper that ships with Moto G 3rd Gen. Its main camera features an aperture as wide as f/2.0, and is further supportedwith a bunch of elements such as phase detection autofocus (PDAF), dual LED flash, and HDR. There’s no OISon this handset, but the quality of images it offers will never you make you feel like switching towards high-end phones with OIS and improved camera specs.For a price around 10k, it just endows the ultimate package for photography!

  1. Superb Visual Experience

Last but not the least, the display packed with Moto G Turbo also gives a wonderful visual experience. The dual SIM phone incorporates the same 5-inch HD IPS panel that ships with Moto G Gen 3. It creates an ideal ecosystem for seamless work and play, and gives a nice visual trip with rich colours, good sunlight visibility and perfect viewing angles. In the sub-15k price category, many phones offer 1080p displays, but Motorola proves the fact that high-screen resolution is not the key ingredient to make a crisp and sharp display. Things like viewing angles, colour saturation and sunlight legitimacy count a lot, and are perfectly integrated inthe Moto G Turbo!And for those who prefer heavy usage, protection from Gorilla Glass 3 plays a significant part in keeping scratches and scuffs at bay.

So, these were the top 5 features that ship with the new Moto G Turbo Edition. The power-packed beauty from Motorolahas taken a dig against renowned budget players, and is offering a complete bang for the buck deal for Indian buyers.Originally, it was priced at Rs. 14,499, but after recent price cutfrom the company, it’s shipping at a tempting price tag of Rs. 12,499 exclusively via Flipkart.

In our opinion, for a budget smartphone buyer, Moto G Turbo makes up a great deal. It not only performs better but also gives stupendous battery backup for nonstop work and play.The battery of Moto G3 was already superb, and Turbo Charging technology makes it even better. So, if you’re buying a new phone with sassy looks and good specs, try out the new Moto G Turbo Edition.

Motorola has always been big on budget phones, and in 2015, the Lenovo-owned giant has given a real treat with two Moto X and three Moto G variants.This year, however, it will be really interesting to see what the company holds up for the 3rd Generation of Moto E.There have been rumours about an improved display and processor, but as of now, there is no official word when we’ll get to see the budget friendly Moto E (Gen 3) in the market. The next phone from Motorola has to be impressive for sure, especially considering the growing domination of players like Meizu, Xiaomi, and Yu!
