To start things off we have the Droid Turbo. Unlike most of Verizon’s other phones, with this being a Droid phone they packaged it in a black box to help it stand out in the stores. As per the usual, the packaging doesn’t really have much going on other than the product name up to on the sleeve and a short listing of contents on the back.

Inside the box, you will find the Droid Turbo up top. Under that tray they include a whole stack of documentation to help you get to know your phone, for required information, and about its safety and warranty information. The Droid Turbo comes with a large AC to USB adapter that will most likely cover more than one plug on your power strip and a USB to micro USB cable.

The box for the MotoX went to the other end of the spectrum with a white box. This is exactly the same as the previous MotoX, only a little larger. On the cover, you have the MotoX name and then the Motorola logo shows through a cutout.

The MotoX comes with a small box filled with documentation. Along with that you also get an AC to USB adapter like usual. This time around, the adapter comes with two USB plugs, something no one else does but they should do. Imagine how much space you could save by being able to double up on your USB chargers. The adapter is also small enough that it won’t cover any other plugs on a power strip like the Droid Turbo’s adapter. Then you also get a white USB to micro USB cable to get the power from the adapter to your phone or from your PC to your phone for data transmission.

The biggest drawback for me on the Turbo was no SD card expansion. I ended up getting the 64gb version and have curbed my music hoarding. I'll put some photos of mine up in a later post.

One thing of note that I think you went over quickly was the larger charger the Turbo comes with. This is actually a power supply in addition to being a USB-AC adapter (which make it larger) This, of course increases its amp output substantially and charges things even faster than a 3.0 SuperSpeed port would (0-full charge on my tablet in about 20mins, 0-full charge on the turbo in about 40mins.) Sure it may not consolidate on size but it is an amazing addition to the retail package as the charger sold separately retails for $35.

As promised:

The weave looks very nice in my opinion and, as you can see, unlike the 32gb version there is a lack of the obnoxious Verizon V branding on the back giving the phone an overall sleeker appearance.
