motorola-droid-turbo-hands-on-3When the Motorola Droid Turbo was only a rumor, one of the rumored features of the handset is that not only could it charge fast, but it could feature a battery that would last users two days. Well the phone was officially unveiled a few days ago and it did sport a sizable 3,900mAh battery, but does it last two days?


Well according to the folks at Phandroid, the answer is sadly no. According to their initial round of tests, the phone managed around a day. The phone lasted them a good 21 hours and still had 17% remaining, which we have to say is still a pretty impressive feat for most phones these days which tends to die out pretty fast.

However it should be pointed out that they had their display’s brightness cranked to the maximum, so if you’re the type that can deal with low-mid levels of brightness, we reckon you could squeeze a few more hours out of your phone’s battery. They were also rather heavy-handed with its usage and were installing apps, streaming videos, taking photos, playing games, and more.

That being said, we agree with Phandroid when they say that battery life will never be the same for anyone. This is because we all use our phones differently from one another. Some might use it mostly for calls and messaging and browsing, while some might use it extensively to surf the web, play games, shoot photos and videos, and so on.

However with the Droid Turbo’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology and the Motorola Turbo Charger, we reckon you should be able to get yourself back to usable levels of battery life in a short amount of time.
