When it comes to choosing a smartphone that’s always been on the forefront of innovation, the DROID brand has stood the test of time by addressing consumer headaches like battery life, charging, and of course, durability. Motorola has introduced two new versions of our most popular DROID models: the DROID Turbo 2 featuring Moto Shatter Shield , the world’s first shatterproof display , and the new DROID Maxx 2, offering longer battery life, clearer pictures, and a more powerful processor.
The Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is the perfect device for anyone who has ever dropped a phone and seen the screen shatter. The company claims the device is shatterproof and will guarantee that claim for four years. The Turbo 2 is also fully customizable, meaning owners will be able to design the colors of device components through the Moto Maker website.
The 21 megapixel (MP) sensor on the smartphone is not quite the same quality of cameras in other smartphones, like the Samsung Galaxy S6, but it will get the job done, offering decent pictures in normal daylight situations. At night and in low light situations, the camera struggles.
Motorola was able to build an all-around winner with the Droid Turbo 2. Besides the durable screen, the phone offers a sharp resolution, a powerful processor and a big battery that is capable of being recharged quickly. The screen on the Droid Turbo 2 is 5.4 inches and a quad-HD display. It will display a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels ,which is 540 pixels per inch (ppi). The 21 megapixel (MP) sensor on the smartphone is not quite the same quality of cameras in other smartphones, like the Samsung Galaxy S6, but it will get the job done, offering decent pictures in normal daylight situations. At night and in low light situations, the camera struggles.
The Turbo 2 runs extremely fast on a Snapdragon 810 processor running at 2.0GHz. Meanwhile, 3GB of RAM helps the phone perform intensive tasks with ease. Motorola says that the Droid Turbo 2 can last up to 48 hours on one charge. The phone will last a long time, but probably not two full days under normal usage. Still, the phone will charge quickly with the TurboCharge power adapter, and it will accept two kinds of wireless charging.
It isn’t cheap , this product is available in $624 unlocked, but it can only be activated on the Verizon network in the U.S. Still, $624 seems worth it for a guaranteed screen.
