UPDATE 12/10: Verizon, this morning, told us that starting tomorrow, December 11, fans can create special Turbo 2 Star Wars edition phones using Moto Maker. Options will include “custom color palates, and backs based on the Poe Dameron, Rey, BB-8, a First Order Storm Trooper, and Kylo Ren characters.” Verizon will also launch an app to Google Play with exclusive wallpapers.
UPDATE: We now have pictures of the Star Wars editions below.
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening in days, it only makes sense that Verizon and Motorola would use their DROID licensing to its full potential. In the coming days, Verizon and Moto will launch DROID Turbo 2 “Star Wars Editions”with 5 Verizon-exclusive wallpapers. (more…)
When you are in the market for a new phone, you (if you are at all a modern customer) probably take to the internet to do the majority of your research. From blogs like this one to paid for services like Consumer Reports, you have plenty of places to get the information that will ultimately help you make a decision on whether or not a phone is the right fit for you. But how often to you stumble onto a review that is thousands of words long and cringe at the thought of reading every single character when you are hoping to make a decision this moment? With this post, we’re going to hopefully help you, assuming you are in the market for a phone and are considering the DROID Turbo 2.
Here are five quick reasons the DROID Turbo 2 is worth buying today. (more…)
Uh oh, another celebrity has signed on to promote a well-known smartphone manufacturer. Did anyone show Ashton Kutcher the Robert Downey Jr. x HTC partnership before he signed up to be Motorola’s next face? No? Or maybe he didn’t care because there was a lot of cash involved? Whatever the case may be, best of luck, Ashton! (more…)
The DROID Turbo 2 is a really good phone (our review), it’s just that it isn’t exactly the prettiest device on the block. Well, I should clarify that by saying that the white version has some issues in the ugly department, thanks to a number of exposed sensors and a completely unacceptable Verizon “check” mark situated at the bottom of the phone’s front, in between its speakers. If you don’t know what I’m referencing, look at the photo at the top of this post. See it? Yeah, it’s terrible. (more…)
It’s late 2015 and Verizon and Motorola are showing no signs of slowing this exclusive DROID partnership that once stood for everything we loved about Android. This year, to follow-up last year’s DROID Turbo, the franchise has been given two new robotic, manhood-enforcing options in the DROID Turbo 2 and DROID MAXX 2.
I have had the pleasure of reviewing this year’s flagship, which is the Turbo 2 and have had just enough time to hopefully give you the full scoop on whether or not this should be your next phone. I’ve taken its shatterproof display for a drop or ten, made sure its camera is as good as the shooter found in the Moto X Pure, and even tried to find out if we have a new battery king on our hands.
This is our DROID Turbo 2 review. (more…)
How many amazing phones have been released within the last three or four months? Seriously, think about it for a second. We got the Moto X Pure Edition, Galaxy Note 5, and the new iPhones around the same time. Then Google introduced the Nexus 6P and 5X, before LG could show off the V10. And even more recently, Motorola gave us two new DROIDs in the Turbo 2 and MAXX 2, plus the HTC One A9 snuck in there. There are amazing choices for phones everywhere you look, from every major manufacturer.
So in today’s poll, we are keeping it simple. Which of the new phones introduced in recent months did you buy or are considering buying? If you want, feel to tell everyone why, as we get asked constantly which phone we would recommend. Because we trust the reader voice, we would appreciate your feedback as a place to direct readers from time to time.
It’s so rare these days that companies announce new phones and then make them available days later, but Verizon and Motorola have done that with the new DROID Turbo 2 and DROID MAXX 2. Both phones became official on Tuesday, and both phones are now available for purchase.
The Turbo 2 is the flagship here and probably the phone you should consider if you consider yourself a smartphone heavy lifter. It features a shatterproof 5.4-inch QHD AMOLED display, 3GB RAM, Qualcomm’s most powerful processor, 21MP camera, plenty of storage, and can be customized to your liking through Motorola’s Moto Maker.

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…)
