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…)
Next week, at a press event in New York, Verizon and Motorola are expected to announce the new DROID Turbo 2 and DROID MAXX 2. Plenty of information has leaked about each over the past few months, information that shows not only a new flagship DROID (Turbo 2), but another, more affordable DROID (MAXX 2) that will focus on battery life. To add to the ongoing story that will soon be official, we have new details from sources of ours that tell of phones that won’t just be about “DROID” and specs. These phones have additional programs that Verizon and Motorola hope will help them stand out. (more…)
The moment HTC got done announcing their low-end HTC One A9 phone, Verizon and Motorola decided to steal their thunder by teasing the new DROID Turbo 2 in a short video clip on Twitter. As you can see in this clip, which tells us “The new DROID is dropping soon,” we get to see the back of the phone as it falls gracefully to the ground. If you aren’t following their lead here, it’s them not only showing you that this phone will have a “shatterproof” display, but that it can withstand drops. Clever.
