Specifications & Features of Moto G Turbo Edition–
The Moto G Turbo doesn’t appear much different from the Moto G 3 in measurement and weight. The black version has a very neat grey-blue back panel which has a rubbery finish that offers a solid grip, and there’s also a slight swirl in the pattern which was straight in the previous android phones. All these things makes the phone one of the most attractive and well-built smartphone in this low price bracket.
Both the 13 MP rear camera with dual LED flash and 5 MP front shooter perform decently even in low light situations which is great to see at the price. The photos has good sharpness with enough ambient light and manageable noise. The video recording was very good and the 720p slow motion videos also come out really well. The autofocus works quickly and accurately.
Motorola certainly does not have killer specifications but it’s good enough for most users. The performance is quite smooth and there’s no noticeable lags. Playing games and watching videos is a pleasure on this android phone. Besides this the sound quality of the speakers is loud and mostly clear.
