Re: Battery life is everything
You are right - the battery life will vary a lot and it depends on what kind of app you will be using. If you play a lot with your smartphone, especially for data and game, then you can easily eat up the battery life in < 24h. Moto is trying to beat the weak point of all smartphones. But I am not sure how is the real-life performance.

Re: Battery life is everything
48 hours on a single charge would be impressive, though I suspect that's with only minimal usage. Apps that send and receive lots of data are going to use a lot of power.

Good Competition for Apple & Samsung
With the Droid Turbo, Motorola may just regain its former reputation as a mobile phone powerhouse along the same lines it had when the StarTac was its superstar product.

Battery life is everything
Weak battery life is the one constant gripe from smartphone users, especially iPhone users. It can make you miserable. So Motorola is smart to beat the big drum on its superior battery life. My last phone was a Droid Razr Maxx and though it had its flaws its battery life was consistently great (not 48 hours great but great). This model seems take battery to an even higher level.
