Motorola DROID Turbo 2 deemed somewhat indestructible in early tests!

Motorola DROID Turbo 2 is new and ready to tumble, as Verizon and Motorola announced today, plus the device is marketed as shatterproof! According to third-party testers, this claim may have some truth to it as the phone is seen suffering tons of falls against different surfaces that have little to no effect over its functionality.

You can drop it from various distances, let it get hit by a car or stomped by a horse’s hoof, but it will still function. DROID Turbo 2 does not just get up from all of the violence it’s been put through without scars though, but if you have lived life with a smartphone with a shattered screen you can live with some dents in the screen too.

CNN tried to break the smartphone today and below you can see what they managed to do:



The main problem could be the sides of the screen as they suffer the most when the device is dropped, scratched or ran over. If you can’t take a dent or two on your smartphone – if you do a lot of heavy-lifting or are just that clumsy – you may still want to invest in a case or keep your mobile device close by. DROID Turbo 2 is closer to being an indestructible smartphone, but it still lacks Superman skills in this aspect.

Motorola DROID Turbo 2 details


The high-end version of this year’s Verizon exclusive will get access to Moto Maker, making it the first Verizon DROID device to get this option. The overall design of the device is similar to Moto X 2015 which Motorola has been selling for a little over a month now. The pamphlet mentions a shatterproof screen – a Verizon P-OLED display panel resistant to cracks – that should be more resistant than conventional tempered glass.


DROID Maxx 2 details


The mid-range Verizon-exclusive is promoted as a long-lasting smartphone in terms of battery – it should last up to 48 hours. You can get a blue, red, black or green version and you can trade-in your used phone for up to $300, even if it has a cracked screen.

There’s no news on pricing yet, but expect the Turbo 2 to range between $600-700 and the Maxx 2 to cost around $400-500. Remember these are Verizon DROID -exclusive phones, so you will not be able to get them if you don’t have a Verizon data plan or are not willing to commit to them.
