Motorola today launched the Moto Turbo in India, priced at Rs 41,999. The smartphone is currently listed on Flipkart, and will start shipping sometime in the third week of March. The Moto Turbo is essentially the Indian version of Moto Maxx, which launched in November last year. With price and specs in the high-end segment, we pit against the newest flagships in town — the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9.

If we look at the thinness, the Galaxy S6 wins the race at 6.8mm, followed by the 8.3mm Moto Turbo, and the 9.6mm One M9.

The Moto Turbo is slightly larger with a 5.2-inch screen, followed by Galaxy S6 at a 5.1-inch display and the One M9 at 5-inch. ­­­­As for resolution, the Moto Turbo and the Galaxy S6 race ahead with QHD displays and pixel densities of 565ppi and 577ppi respectively. The One M9 comes short with a full HD display, and a pixel density of 441ppi. Also Read - Best smartphones for photography under Rs 20,000 to gift for Father's Day

Processor
All the three are powerful on paper, with enough power to handle any and everything thrown at them. The HTC One M9 comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 octa-core (1.5GHz Cortex-A53 quad-core + 2GHz Cortex-A57 quad-core) chipset. The Galaxy S6 too is powered by an octa-core processor — Exynos 7420 octa-core (1.5GHz Cortex-A53 quad-core + 2.1GHz Cortex-A57 quad-core).

Meanwhile, the Moto Turbo is powered by a Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor. All the three processors are paired with 3GB of RAM respectively.

Storage
Moto Turbo comes with 64GB of internal storage with no external memory slot. In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with three storage options – 32GB, 64GB and 128GB – again with no slot for expandable memory. The One M9, on the other hand, has 32GB internal memory storage option, which can be expanded up to 128GB via microSD slot.

Camera
On paper, Motorola’s smartphone has the biggest camera on the back with a 21-megapixel snapper at the back, followed by a 20-megapixel snapper on the One M9, and the 16-megapixel on the Galaxy S6.

On the front, the Galaxy S6 has a 5-megapixel selfie camera, the Moto Turbo has a 2-megapixel selfie camera, while the One M9 has a 4-Ultrapixel snapper upfront. This is just a comparison on paper, and we will reserve our full opinion for when we review them individually.

Battery
On the battery front, the Moto Turbo wins hands down. The smartphone’s USP is a massive 3,900mAh battery. The company claims that it is good enough for up to 48 hours of mixed usage. It also supports Motorola’s Turbo Charger, which is said to provide eight hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging. In comparison, the One M9 has a 2,840mAh battery (up to 21 hours on 3G), while the Galaxy S6 has a 2,550mAh battery (with wireless and fast charging features).

OS
All the three smartphones run on Android Lollipop out-of-the-box. The OS on the Galaxy S6 is wrapped under an overhauled (and much lighter) TouchWiz UI, while the OS on the One M9 is wrapped under HTC’s Sense 7.0 UI. The Moto Turbo, on the other hand, runs on a nearly stock version of Lollipop.

All the three handsets have their own highs, and the big deciding factor will ultimately boil down to the price. The Moto Turbo is priced at Rs 41,999, while the other two’s India price remain unannounced.
