Motorola wasted no time in announcing the close brother to the recently announced DROID Turbo 2, that being the Moto X Force. In the shortest press release ever that stopped off in our inbox this morning, Motorola told us to expect the X Force in November in Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific. They accompanied that email with a link to a drop test of the phone vs. the iPhone 6 and the Galaxy S6. If you know about the Turbo 2, then you know what happened. (more…)
After posting our unboxing, we realized that we had a whole bunch of photos of the new DROID Turbo 2 and DROID MAXX 2 that we had yet to post, including some of the Moto Maker options for the Turbo 2, should you choose the 64GB model and go the customization route. So, here is a big ass gallery of the phones!
Actually, before we get there, be sure to read the full announcement for these new DROIDs, as it talks about pricing and Moto Maker options. Also, don’t forget that we posted official specs for the MAXX 2 and Turbo 2 to show that the rumors leading up to today were right.
OK, here you go – the big ol’ gallery of each phone. (more…)
Are we skeptical of Motorola’s claim that the DROID Turbo 2’s display is shatterproof? Yeah, a little. But the good news there is that we get to test the hell out of it. In fact, I just dropped the phone off the table I’m sitting at, just to be sure. And yep, it’s still not shattered. (more…)
The DROID MAXX 2 may not be the headliner of the two new DROIDs, but it shouldn’t be overlooked. This phone, like its distant cousin, the Moto X Play, is a well-equipped phone but with an even better price that is a heck of a value.
At just $16 per month ($384 full retail), you get a 5.5-inch FHD (1080p) display, 21MP camera, 2GB RAM, 3630mAh battery, 16GB storage with SD card support, 4G LTE, and a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor. Seriously, that’s a pretty decent set of specs for a phone that still drops in under $400. Then again, the Moto X Pure tops it in most areas and is only $15 more. The Nexus 5X is also on-par in many areas, yet starts at just $379.
The phone will go up for purchase on October 29 at Verizon. (more…)
The DROID Turbo 2 is now official. If you plan on picking one up, you should know what is under the hood, including its Snapdragon 810 processor and 21MP camera. Out of the two new DROID phones, the Turbo 2 is certainly the “flagship,” with its shatterproof display, plus the ability to customize it through Moto Maker.
Below, we have the full set of specs for you, which show its 5.4″ QHD display, Snapdragon processor, storage, and 21MP rear-facing camera.
The DROID Turbo 2 is available October 29 with a starting price of $624. (more…)
