HTC’s new One M9 and Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones all seem fantastic, and we were thoroughly impressed by each and every one when we previewed them at Mobile World Congress. But if you need a new smartphone right now, unfortunately none of these new phones are available for sale yet.

If you’re a smartphone shopper with an urgent need to upgrade, however, don’t despair — my favorite Android phone on the planet just had its price slashed by 25%.

DON’T MISS: New leak may have finally revealed Galaxy S6’s U.S. release date

There are plenty of Android smartphones on the market right now, and they all have good things and bad things about them. If you’re looking for a smartphone that packs a beautiful design, great specs, killer performance and outstanding battery life, I have some great news for you… provided you’re a Verizon Wireless subscriber, or are open to becoming one.

The Motorola Droid Turbo is by far my favorite smartphone on the market right now, and Verizon just slashed the price of the phone on contract by 25% to $149.99 from $199.99. The phone comes in two finishes, and I highly recommend the one with the metalized glass fiber back.

Here’s a link to the Verizon website where you can buy the newly-discounted Droid, and here’s our Motorola Droid Turbo review if you want to see what you can look forward to if you buy this phone.
