Win A Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo & Never Take A Bad Cell Phone Travel Photo Again

written by Julie Cohn

Verizon Motorola Droid TurboWhen you travel, do you like to take photos?  I love taking photos, but sometimes I don’t feel like bringing my bulky camera with me, especially when I am outdoors.  My cell phone is pretty compact, so sometimes I use that to take photos when I travel, but unfortunately, my phone does not have the best camera, and has horrible battery life, so I wind up missing a great shot because my phone dies or is blurry.  What is a photo-loving girl like me supposed to do?  Fortunately, I found out about the Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo, which takes awesome travel photos!   Guess what?  I am giving away a Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo, so you will have a chance to take awesome photos too!

When I went to England last summer, I brought my DSLR with me, but we did a lot of traveling by train, and changed hotels often, so my DSLR was often packed away.  I tried to use my cell phone camera, but the battery kept dying on me–it was so frustrating!  This was such an iconic trip with my son, and I wanted to capture every moment, but many of my phone photos came out blurry, or my phone died at the most inopportune time, so I wound up having to use my regular camera anyway.  My DSLR photos came out great, but I vowed never to take an international trip with such a poor cell phone again.  I need to know that my cell phone will work when I need it to, and that I am ready at a moments notice to capture life’s greatest moments.

I am an avid Instagram user and have been working hard to improve the quality of my photos, but in order to do so, I needed a better cell phone, with a great battery, and excellent camera capabilities.  My friend Lara, from Chicken Nuggets of Wisdom, knew the frustrations I was having with my cellphone camera, and she also knew my family were Verizon customers, so she recommended the new Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo to me.  As I looked into the Motorola Droid Turbo more, I realized it had exactly the features I needed, plus so many more!

The Features…

  • A 2.7 GHz Processor: This processor is lightning fast, as fast as a full-size laptop!
  • A 48 hour battery: Yes, 48 hours!  My current battery lasts…10 minutes.  (A very slight exaggeration.)
  • Turbo-charge battery: This means that when you plug the phone in to charge it, you have 8 hours worth of battery in 15 minutes!
  • A 21 MP camera: Stop and think about this for a moment.  This thin little cell phone has the same amount of mega pixal power as a full size digital camera!
  • Strong yet light:  The phone is made with a metalized glass fiber, re-enforced with Kevlar fiber, then sealed with a water-repellent nano coating.

{A phone was provided for this giveaway, but my opinions are 100% my own.}

Doesn’t this phone sound wonderful?  Now you have a chance to win a Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo for yourself!  For more information about the Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo, please visit the Verizon website.

I’m sorry I missed you when you were in England! It would’ve been fun to catch up IRL.

I would love to travel but for now am only snapping photos at work. My photos are pretty sucky. This camera would help loads.

Your photos are beautiful! My old iPhone takes crappy photos!

That phone takes incredible photos! I have an old Iphone and am about to spend the money on a point and shoot tiny camera just so I can get something decent for my hair portfolio.

I am also disappointed in the photos taken with my cell phone. This phone seems to have the convenience of a phone with the quality of a camera. I would love this phone!

It’s hard to believe those are all cellphone photos. The quality is fantastic. Since I rarely bring my camera around, unless I know I’ll be taking photos, I need a great cell phone camera.

I have the Droid Turbo (in red) and it’s a great phone. It is amazingly durable. I don’t have a case and it has still survived multiple falls onto the cement. The last one was just this week and about a 5 foot drop off my front porch when the dog chased after a squirrel and my hand went flying.
