first_imgIn response to Amazon’s Great India sale, Flipkart is set to host its own promotional event – called the Big 10 Sale – between May 14 and May 18. Just like to Amazon’s Great India sale, Flipkart’s Big 10 Sale will offer consumer electronic products on discount. One of them that really stands out – among other things – is the price drop on the Moto G Turbo. The Moto G Turbo which was launched at Rs 14,499 (in December 2015) can be purchased for as little as Rs 12,499 currently. Between May 14 and May 18, however, the Moto G Turbo will be available for buying for Rs 6,999 on Flipkart.The Moto G Turbo comes with a 5-inch HD IPS display and is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clubbed with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory which is also expandable. The dual-SIM phone supports 4G LTE connectivity. It sports a 13-megapixel camera on the rear with f/2.0 aperture, autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash. On the front, the Moto G Turbo comes with a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture. The phone is further backed by a 2,470 mAh battery.The Moto G Turbo — although the phone doesn’t figure in the long list of Moto phones eligible for an Android Nougat update — is a good phone nonetheless. The phone comes with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box and is upgradable to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Just like other Moto phones, the Moto G Turbo also rocks a near stock or vanilla flavor of Android. If you’re someone who isn’t too hard-pressed about your phone getting a Nougat update, the Moto G Turbo still has a lot of juice inside to make it a value for money proposition even in 2017.advertisementIn adition to a fairly decent hardware set, the Moto G Turbo also comes with IP67 certification for water and dust resistance. No other phone at Rs 6,999 currently offers dust and water resistance. Someone who is looking to buy an affordable phone — like the Moto G Turbo — would obviously want to cash in on the durability he/she is able to get out of his/her purchase.The Moto G Turbo also supports fast charging — TurboCharging – and the TurboCharger supplied with the phone claims to provide up to 6 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging. Not only does the Moto G Turbo have a fantastic battery life, it also charges like a bullet. No other smartphone at Rs 6,999 currently offers fast charging and even if it does, chances are that phone may not come with a fast charger in the box.Also Read: Motorola Moto G Turbo review: Good old Moto with a dash of speedlast_img
