Actually it does factor in turning delays... when that data is available. When/if you can afford to take the time, driving those suggested routes a few times will provide Waze with that information, and it will "learn" that taking those side-streets isn't such a bargain after all.
(This assumes there are no problems with the map--e.g., wrongly restricted turns, disconnected roads--along the better route.)
