Motorola DROID Turbo 2 news: new top-of-the-line smartphone boasts shatterproof display


At first glance, one can see a flatter, more sophisticated look on the Motorola DROID Turbo 2, which can even be customized as to color and material. But fans should not be fooled by its exterior as this smartphone is packed with features and durability. 

Of two Droid smartphones just launched, the DROID Turbo 2 is the higher-end piece. It has a ShatterShield shatterproof display, with a won’t-crack-though-you-drop guarantee of up to four years.

Since it is built with a plastic substrate called P-OLED  not glass  with a five-layer panel, the display is protected from breaking or shattering easily. The ShatterShield display is of aluminum rigid core, with a 5.4-inch QHD touchscreen (1440 2560 pixel resolution) at 540 pixels per inch.

The battery capacity of the DROID Turbo 2 is another selling point at 3,760 mAh that can last the whole day even with demanding usage, or two days mixed use. This battery is also quick-charging.

Measuring 149.80 78.00 9.20 millimeters and weighing 169 grams, this remarkable smartphone runs on a 2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 processor, 3 GB RAM, a choice of 32 or 64 GB storage versions, with expandable microSD storage up to 2,000 GB, and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS upgrade-ready for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This superior feature lineup shows the DROID Turbo 2 surpasses the Moto X Pure Edition in terms of processor and memory capacity.

Connectivity features include Wi-Fi support, GPS, Bluetooth v 4.10, infrared, single-SIM nano-type, and 3 G, 4 G/LTE support. 

The rear camera is 21 megapixels, with f/20 aperture, phase detect autofocus, and a dual LED flash, while the front camera is 5 megapixels with flash.

With a durable and customizable design, superior specs and features, unequalled drop protection, and long-lasting battery life, there’s no reason why anyone wouldn’t go for the DROID Turbo 2; except perhaps, as with other DROID models, the DROID Turbo 2 is exclusive to the Verizon Wireless network in the United States. This will be available on Oct. 29.

The Motorola DROID Turbo 2 is said to be one of the longest-lasting smartphones to have passed the battery benchmark test, a long-term investment that may be worth looking into.
