Motorola Droid Turbo 2 and OnePlus X are two devices that were released last fall. One of them is the successor of the famous Droid Turbo with an industrial look, but this one has an additional element of protection, while the other is OnePlus’ third smartphone and has mid-range specs. Today we’re going to compare these two devices and let you decide which one of these devices suits your needs better.
The Motorola Droid Turbo 2 measures 149.9x78x9.2mm and weights 170 grams. This time, Motorola has used ballistic nylon, leather and soft plastic to make its back and the device is available in many variants of colors, but the fans can customize its appearance on the Moto Maker website. The OnePlus X is thinner and lighter, as it measures 140x69x6.9mm and weights only 138 grams, while its back is made of zirconia ceramic: black glass Onyx or white glass Champagne.
The Droid Turbo 2 comes with an AMOLED display of 5.4-inch that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 540 ppi. This is the first phone in the world with a shatterproof display with five layers of protection which make it very hard to break. The OnePlus X has a smaller AMOLED display of 5.0-inch that supports a weaker resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 441 ppi and it is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM
The Droid Turbo 2 has a Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 chipset, an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.5GHz and a quad-core Cortex A57 processor clocked at 2GHz, an Adreno 430 graphics card and 3GB of RAM. The OnePlus X features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, a quad-core Krait 400 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, an Adreno 330 graphics card and 3GB of RAM.
The Droid Turbo 2 was released in two internal storage variants of 32GB and 64GB, but you can expand it by using a microSD card up to 200GB. On the other hand, the OnePlus X has an internal storage of only 16GB, but it supports a microSD card with a capacity of up to 128GB.
The Droid Turbo 2 comes with a 21MP primary camera found on the rear side of the device that features touch focus, face detection, geo-tagging, auto-HDR and a secondary camera of 5MP found on the front side. The OnePlus X has a weaker primary camera of 13MP on the rear side of the device, but the secondary camera is better, supporting a higher resolution of 8MP.
Both devices have non-removable batteries, but the Droid Turbo 2 has a bigger one of 3760 mAh compared to the 2525 mAh housed by the OnePlus X device.
