Motorola and Verizon released this week the Droid Turbo 2, a top Android-operating smart phone with a secured display. The Turbo 2’s 5.4”, quad-HD display can resist to a variety of shocks and hits with different forces. A specialist who had access to this phone and was allowed to test it said that the device has been hit against hard objects from timber to natural flagstone and remained with just a few scratches.
According to the manufacturer, it took a couple of years and a team of technicians to fix this significant smart phone problem. The Droid Turbo’s AMOLED display has five layers of material with double redundant contact levels and a pair of “lenses” covering it from cracks. Nevertheless, it does not appear overexposed or dim at first look.
The smart phone is rather large, partly thanks to these layers that protect its display, the aluminum alloy structure and the massive battery under the back case. The second generation of Droid Turbo has a pretty thick 3750mAh battery that is more than enough for one day of intense usage. The smart phone rocks a QuickCharge fast-charging feature, the 2.1GHz Snapdragon 810 chip set and the high-end 21MP and 5MP cameras. The producer offers a 32GB and 64GB model, the memory being extended via a MicroSD card port. The Droid Turbo also benefits from the Moto Maker facility, where users can have various styles for their phones, such as a pebbled design.
Its shatterproof option will be unique for Verizon clients in the United States until the end of this year, but the producer will use this technological advancement and other features to reach a broader segment of users. This is a device exclusively developed and built by Motorola, but it enhances what the first-gen of Droid to the market. This is a series of smart phones known for their strength and their sales continue growing every year, proving the users’ interest for the devices.
The Droid Turbo 2 arrives with a style refresh choice, which allows customers to exchange their 64GB version for a new design any time they want, during the two years of the warranty. That allows them change the back covers or to get rid of the scraped and grazed design.
In addition, these two companies also released the new Droid Maxx 2, the representatives declaring that this is the Verizon-specific edition of the international Moto X Play. Both the Droid Maxx 2 and the X Play have 5.5”, 1080p displays and Snapdragon 615 processor chips. The Maxx 2 has only 16GB of memory storage that can be extended via MicroSD cards, besides a massive 3630mAh battery and the 21MP and 5MP back and frontal sensors.
Both mobile phones will receive upgrades for the newest version of the Android operating system, the Marshmallow 6.0, according to the producer. They come on October 29 and the Turbo 2 will have a price of $625 or $700, for those who choose the model refresh option, while the Maxx 2 will have a price tag of only $375, being aimed at the mid-range market segment.
