Verizon debuts 3 metallic color options for the Motorola DROID Turbo, arrives May 28th


droid turbo metallic

Verizon has 3 new limited edition color options for the Motorola DROID Turbo on the way, all of which are a bit metallic in style. You’ll have your choice of Blue, Orange or Violet accents for the camera ring, DROID logo, volume rocker and power buttons.

And yes, the effect only applies to the accents — they’re all standard Gray Ballistic Nylon colors, otherwise. It’s not the most insane alternative options we’ve ever seen, but if you are planning to pick one of these up in the near future and don’t mind the added pizzazz then it’s worth consideration.

It’s the same phone we’ve reviewed otherwise, with a promised 48 hour battery life, and Turbo charging. Be sure to check out our Motorola DROID Turbo review if you need some insight before hitting the buy button. The new goods launch May 28th.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Such a shame this phone is a VZW exclusive.
    It could possibly be the one phone to slow down my wanderlust for the perfct phonein a GSM variant……..

    1. I have it and can tell you that you’re lucky you don’t have it. It is still rocking android 4.4.4 and instead of trying to get the software updated they are changing the color of the camera lense ring.

      1. I understand that it has not updated to Lollipop but the phone still rocks with KitKat

      2. That’s hardly a fair assessment. Sales and software are entirely different departments.

      3. I totally get the update sentiment,experienced it 1st hand w/the MOTO PHOTON,stuck on GINGERBREAD.
        Howver,IMHO,I don’t think you’re missing much,if anything at all.
        I can’t think of anything w/Lollipop that screams MustHave……

      4. Dude, don’t downplay such a great device. I’ve had mine since launch and do not even care that i’m still on KitKat. I’d rather it be stable than buggy anyway. Plus, the phone runs flawlessly as is. I’ll admit i would love to see an update to Lollipop, i’m also not going to complain. As the other person states too, software and sales are different. Would you rather a bloated samsung with BS Lollipop update?

        1. Good thing yours runs flawless because mine and my girlfriend’s don’t. Linking in and out of app (like opening a chrome tab in google voice) is completely broken. I have to copy the URL, open a new tab, paste, then it works and it’s been that way since the last update.

      5. Really? You mean that excellent experience given by kitkat? Damn skippy it’s “rocking it”. Give me L when it isn’t a buggy mess.

    2. It is sold as a GSM device. It’s branded as the Moto Maxx. http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_moto_maxx-6779.php

      1. I checked pdadb.net & while it may work internationally,it appears it’s missing afew T-Mobile friendly bands.
        It’ll work on T-Mobile,but,not well enough for a daily driver.
        Otherwise,I may have given this a look when it became available.

        EDIT:Looks like it’s more compatible than I thought:


        1. I’m almost positive the Verizon model works on Tmobile too, maybe check that out?

          1. Too many phones already.
            Perhaps down the road……..

          2. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=56440921&postcount=20

            Confirmed by this guy. I know the feeling with too many phones. Just bought a Z3 compact to replace my now dead Z1. The Zenphone looks so nice though!

      2. I let this one slip by,totally missed it.
        Of course I just ordered the ASUS Zenfone2 this morning.
        It has more features/arguably better-specced,but,damn the thin phone rhetoric,that MAXX battery is what I’m talkin’ about…….

        1. The zenphone 2 is not better spec’d but it’s an incredible phone for the price. Enjoy it

  2. Excited to see new gen Moto devices with better camera and hopefully same or better battery life as the Turbo!

  3. Wait.. that bulky Turbo brick is still relevant to where they want to now… now…. release new colors.

    Typically VZW nonsense.

    1. Yes, that well rounded, easy to hold, piece of hardware is still relevant. Move along son

    2. I always laugh when people call these smartphones bricks due their weight or thickness. The cell phones I started with had an extended battery that was twice the thickness and weight of the Turbo, not the whole phone, just the extended battery. Sack up and have a cheeseburger so you can hoist your phone to your ear.

  4. not only is it still relevant, but it’s still the phone i’d buy if I went to a verizon store right now. It still outlasts the Samsung options in battery life while being just as powerful and having a 1440p screen. (so maybe it benchmarks 6% slower… in the real world it opens every app instantly)
    Bought this on launch and have loved every day with it… I no longer have to charge my phone during the day and the freedom that provides is wonderful.
