Even more it seems that Verizon offer one more app that you won’t find on the Moto X – we are talking about Droid Zap.

You can use it to share photos and videos with friends and family by creating a Zap Zone, having the advantage that it works with other Android phones and even with iPhone, but only the Droid Turbo can share videos.
