I Have a Moto Turbo. Its a fantastic smartphone. Since i travel alot things can get messy and rough on road but my device has been a real companion. No body damage and perfect shots. Only the speakers are dead. But while using earphones you woudnt really know the difference. Dont know why people make such a hype about the costlier ones like HTC or Samsung!
