Tip: Buy a New ShatterShield Lens for Your DROID Turbo 2 and Ditch the Verizon Branding

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…)

DROID Maxx 2 Review

Verizon and Motorola partnered together yet again this year, giving us two devices in the DROID lineup for the holiday shopping season. We have the DROID Turbo 2 and DROID Maxx 2. The DROID Turbo 2 has a lot to highlight, including its Shatterproof display, as well as the ability to customize it through Moto Maker. The DROID Maxx 2, on the other hand, really does not have as many marquee features, with the exception of its large battery.

When compared to the DROID Turbo 2, no doubt, the DROID Maxx 2 is its little brother. It features a few mid range to high-end specs, coupled with a somewhat reasonable price when compared to current flagship models on the market. So, is the DROID Maxx 2 worth the nearly $400 price at full retail? Let’s go ahead and find out.

This is our DROID Maxx 2 review.  (more…)

DROID Turbo 2 Review

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…)

Moto Shop Boutique Pops Up in Downtown Chicago, Opens November 7

Motorola announced the Moto Shop this morning, a pop up “experiential boutique” right in downtown Chicago. The reason for this shop is pretty straightforward. As we all know, shopping online makes purchasing goods very convenient, but Motorola would prefer a more personal experience, especially when it comes to smartphones and smartwatches. That is why, right in time for the holiday shopping season, folks in the Chicago area can check out new Motorola products in-person.  (more…)

DROID Turbo 2 and MAXX 2 Now Available From Verizon

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.  (more…)
