The Verizon exclusive DROID series has got its yearly upgrade. The new DROIDs have arrived. One of them is going to rock the smartphone industry for sure.
The Motorola DROID Turbo 2 is the first phone ever to sport Motorola’s latest Moto ShatterShield tech for the display. Motorola is making really tall claims with this. It’s giving a guarantee that the display on its DROID 2 won’t crack or shatter for up to freaking FOUR years. Only time will tell if Motorola’s claim holds any credibility. But right now, it’s the feature I want on my next phone.
Motorola DROID Turbo 2 is otherwise a slightly tweaked, upgraded version of Moto X Style/Pure. This one has a little smaller 5.4-inch display, still with QHD resolution. Size reduction should make it little more comfortable to hold. It’s the Snapdragon 810 doing the heavy lifting along with 3 gigs of RAM. Camera, however, is still the 21MP module on the back and 5MP on the front. The biggest complaint with Moto X Style since its launch was the small battery as it has a dense QHD display. Motorola has addressed this in DROID 2 with a 3,760 mAh battery.
DROID Turbo 2 is fully customizable with Moto Maker. Verizon will even let you refresh it once during the two-year contract term. The design refresh will also upgrade your phone to the 64GB variant. You’d wish there was a way to remove that ugly Verizon logo from the front and reduce the bezel size.
Ladies, and gentlemen, that’s DROID 2 for you with the feature that’s gonna rock the industry. You can pick it up from October 29 for $26/month or $624 off-contract. If you opt-in for design refresh, you will need to pay $94 more.
You guys gonna buy it or not?
