Verizon’s Motorola Droid arrangement once in a while gets the same media consideration as other Android telephones like Samsung’s Galaxy S arrangement or Google’s Nexus line, yet it has been one of the all the more noteworthy arrangement of telephones ever. The Droid DNA was the main telephone to highlight a 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixel) show and the Droid Razr Maxx was the primary telephone to highlight 24 hours of battery life.

Presently Verizon and Motorola are grinding away again with the Droid Turbo 2. This telephone has all the highest point of-the-line specs that you would expect, however it likewise has one element never seen on some other telephone: a shatterproof presentation. Motorola’s ShatterShield?technology is ensured not to make or break for laugh out loud to two years.

On the off chance that you journey around YouTube, you’ll discover a lot of individuals anxiety testing the telephone by running it over with their autos, dropping it from 900 feet, and tossing it around.

It might be almost indestructible, however is the Droid Turbo on a par with it’s all laughed out loud to be?

A flat outline that mixes in

We regularly acclaim Motorola’s telephones for their awesome form quality and workmanship. In any case, that is not going to be the situation with the Droid Turbo 2. It’s a strong and well-assembled telephone, yet it doesn’t have a leader nearness or a showy configuration. It has an invisible girl look that won’t have anybody swooning over it.

My greatest protestation is that it looks a lot of like the mid-range Droid Maxx 2, which is a nitty gritty telephone, as well. There are a couple clear contrasts like the metal casing, however it’s insufficient to separate the two elaborately.


The back board on the Turbo 2 has a comparable carved example, alongside the same rubber treated delicate feel as the Maxx 2. It gave a decent hold on the Maxx 2, however less on the Turbo 2. The Turbo 2 isn’t adjusted on the back like the Maxx 2 is. Rather, it’s all the more level, and just the edges are adjusted. The thought was to keep the telephone genuinely thin, while supporting a bigger battery in the meantime. The outcome is the edges are presently the point of convergence when holding the gadget, and they are more tricky.

The previously stated casing around the body is made of aluminum rather than the plastic artificial metal on the Maxx 2, yet the two telephones look about indistinguishable.

The front of the Turbo 2 is a long way from appealing with the speakers at the base, and the front-confronting camera, front-confronting streak, and different sensors at the top. Setting the stereo speakers at the base on the front of the telephone is a disgrace. Most makers spot one at the top and one at the base. That format is normally better to watch recordings in scene mode since it offers better division of the sound. We observed the general sound to be alright, however it’s mediocre compared to HTC’s BoomSound.

We won’t get into the way that the old Verizon logo is correct smack amidst the speakers at the base. The dark rendition of the telephone looks better, however our white audit unit feels cheapo.

On the in addition to side, the Droid Turbo 2 is the principal Droid that you can alter through Moto Maker simply like you can with the Moto X Pure Edition. Motorola is additionally offering a “Configuration Refresh” on the off chance that you buy the 64GB rendition before December 31, 2015. With Design Refresh, you can arrange a totally diverse outline whenever inside two years of your buy date. On the off chance that customization isn’t your thing, you can at present choose fundamental renditions found at Verizon stores and on the web. These incorporate Black Soft-Grip, Black-Pebble Leather, Gray Ballistic Nylon, and Winter White Soft-Grip (our audit unit).

The Droid Turbo 2 is fairly thick at 9.2mm, yet it has one of the greatest batteries in the business. Most producers keep on pushing the envelope on slenderness, however it’s alright to be somewhat thicker with an end goal to give developed battery life.

m2 m5 m4

Even however the Turbo 2 has a marginally littler screen than the Maxx 2 (5.4 versus 5.5-inches), it really has a greater impression. The Turbo 2 comes in at 149.8 x 78.0mm, while the littler Maxx 2 is 148.0 x 75mm. The additional length is clearly because of the stereo speakers at the base, yet it’s vague why it’s more extensive.

The Droid Turbo 2 is extremely strong on account of the ShatterShield show, however it doesn’t feel as premium as the iPhone 6S, Galaxy S6, or the Nexus 6P. Be that as it may, a shatterproof showcase may turn out to be more essential than looks.

A straightforward shatterproof display

The highlight of the Droid Turbo 2 must be its shatterproof showcase, or as Motorola calls it, ShatterShield. You can read more about ShatterShield innovation here, yet basically, the showcase comprises of four layers for complete assurance.

In spite of the fact that it’s shatterproof, the Droid Turbo 2 isn’t a rough telephone. It’s intended to survive run of the mill coincidental falls. That implies drops from around 6 feet in tallness, not from tall structures. Be that as it may, despite everything it okayed when the folks from Unlock River dropped from 900 feet onto solid, which is amazing. Of course, the screen was beat up upon effect, however despite everything it fueled on and the screen itself was not broke by any means. You can’t pummel a mallet on it more than once or roll over it and anticipate that it will get by without a few wounds. Thankfully those sorts of episodes once in a while happen unintentionally.

Whatever remains of the telephone is as valuable as some other. You will in any case require a case to shield the body from getting dinged up from those coincidental falls or the keys in your pocket.

We dropped our survey unit from close to 6 feet high no less than 50 times on different surfaces, for example, wood floors and asphalt. The glass is the same as when it was expelled from the crate, which is surprising and something we never thought conceivable.

Never worrying about splitting your showcase is the thing that I call genuine feelings of serenity.

Blazing quick execution and a tolerable display

With regards to execution, the Droid Turbo 2 is tantamount to any lead telephone. The octa-center Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB of RAM give the sort of pace that satisfies the telephone’s Turbo name. Subsequent to utilizing the Nexus 6P for the two weeks before getting the Turbo 2, I was stunned that I didn’t see a distinction. It’s as rich smooth as some other top of the line telephone.


Its spec sheet is fundamentally the same as that of the 6P, Samsung’s Galaxy S6, the LG G4, and the vast majority of the other leader telephones discharged for the current year. Truth be told, the Snapdragon 810 is a fresher processor than the 808 found in the G4, Moto X Style Pure Edition, and LG V10. On paper, the Turbo 2 is a leader.

The Droid Turbo 2 likewise brandishes a 5.4-inch P-OLED Quad HD show that compares to a determination of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. Quad HD is needless excess for a great many people, yet it gives an extremely fresh show. You may find that it’s marginally oversaturated, however the hues are more than sufficient and the review edges are awesome.

Great battery life

What’s intriguing about the Droid Turbo 2 is that its 3,760mAh battery is greater than the Droid Maxx 2’s 3,630mAh battery. In any case, the Turbo 2’s battery life isn’t as great. Both telephones are appraised at 48 hours, yet the Turbo 2’s battery needs to control a higher determination show.

All things considered, the it’s an expert. We directed our video rundown test, in which we leave the showcase at 67 percent shine while the telephone is associated with 4G LTE (not Wi-Fi), it kept going 9 hours and 20 minutes. The Maxx 2 endured a little more than 11 hours in the same test.

The uplifting news is that you will effortlessly get past a whole day, to say the very least. I found that I generally had no less than 50 percent left following a bustling day at the workplace with around 30 percent left at sleep time. You won’t get 48 hours out of the Turbo 2, yet 24 to 30 hours is a fantasy when contrasted with most different telephones. The current year’s leaders experienced short battery life. Whether we tried the Galaxy S6, Nexus 6P, or LG G4, the battery didn’t last recent day of utilization.

Much the same as the Droid Maxx 2, the Turbo 2 offers fast charging, or as Motorola calls it, Turbo Power. By utilizing the charger that comes as a part of the case, or some other Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0?charger, you will have the capacity to quickly charge the telephone. It just takes around 20 minutes to go from 0 to 25 percent, and relying upon your utilization case, that could mean 7 to 10 hours of life. You can likewise go from 0 to 100 percent in around 2 hours, which is great when you consider the measure of the battery.

The Turbo 2 includes remote charging, which the Droid Maxx 2 needs. You can utilize either Qi or PMA mats, so whatever you effectively own will be perfect. Remote charging is advantageous, yet we just prescribe utilizing it while resting subsequent to the charging rate is a considerable measure slower than utilizing the Turbo Power charger.

An enhanced camera

Motorola has definitely enhanced in the camera division, yet the organization still trails Apple and Samsung. Be that as it may, the crevice is much littler than it was several years back.

The 21-megapixel-back camera is the same one found on the Moto X Pure Edition, which implies that it will make a decent showing with regards to when there’s a great deal of light, yet it can be conflicting in low light shots. I found that most low-light shots were better than average, however now and then the picture was oversaturated and/or had a lot of clamor. Optical picture adjustment (OIS) would have helped, however Verizon and Motorola chose to forget it for the shatterproof showcase.

The camera interface is the same as what you will discover on past Motorola telephones, which is at least somewhat straightforward. You can tap anyplace you need on the showcase to catch shots, and the controls are restricted. Motorola offers a slide-to-center alternative that incorporates the stomach muscle
