Reviews for the Motorola Droid Turbo 2

80% A souped-up smartphone marred by carrier bloat
Source: PC World English
The Droid Turbo 2 is a fantastic device, but I’d caution you against it out of sheer principle—and all the software maintenance you’ll have to do before you can use the device, like deleting applications and disabling Verizon’s bloatware. And if I can’t convince you to stick it to the man, then I suggest you wait until the phone is on sale before Verizon suckers you into spending $250 over the cheaper, unlocked Moto X Pure Edition. It really is a shame, because a high-end phone that performs this well and has such fantastic durability and battery life could please a lot of customers. And outside the U.S., where this phone is sold unlocked and free of carrier bloat as the Moto X Force, I expect that it will.

But for now, the Droid Turbo 2 is a singular, carrier-exclusive phone that knows exactly who it’s made for: The pragmatists; the people who know they’re bound to drop their handset from time to time and will forget their charger occasionally. Beyond its Verizon-only status, bloatware, and elderly OS, perhaps the biggest thing holding the Turbo 2 back is that we want our gadgets to be beautiful.

DROID Turbo 2 Review
Source: Droid-Life English
I don’t think you would be disappointed if you did go that route. The phone is fast – really fast. It has all of the rest of the specs you need in a modern flagship phone, as well, but it’s also built to last. The freakin’ thing is shatterproof, folks, shatterproof. That’s a big deal for a lot of people. You can also design your own, refresh that design in a few months when you get bored of the first design, never worry about finding a charger again during your commute home, snap quality photos, and enjoy mostly stock Android.

The Droid Turbo 2 answers the 3 most common problems with smartphones. With it’s Shatterproof screen, fantastic battery life and near vanilla Android software, the Droid Turbo 2 is the phone we’ve been waiting for. Although not the most attractive device and quite expensive, Verizon users will love the Droid Turbo 2.

oing beyond the Moto X Pure Edition, it also sees competition from other notable smartphones currently in Verizon’s portfolio that are similarly priced – such as the iPhone 6s, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, LG V10, and LG G4. Without a doubt, if battery life and an extra-tough screen are of utmost importance in your decision buying process, the DROID Turbo 2 should be on your list.

80% Droid Turbo 2 by Motorola (Verizon Wireless)
Source: PC Mag English
The 32GB Google Nexus 6P is only $499, making it $125 less than same-sized Droid Turbo 2 (which itself is only $72 less than the Note 5). This puts the Turbo 2 at an awkward price point, flanked by the more affordable Nexus 6P with comparable hardware, better low-light camera, and reliable bloatware-free updates on one side; and the slightly more expensive Note 5 with its powerful performance, excellent camera, and premium build on the other. If battery life and durability are your primary concern, you won't go wrong with the Droid Turbo 2. Otherwise, the Nexus 6P and Note 5 may be more to your taste.

80% Breakthrough Durability
Source: Tom's Guide English
Overall, the Droid Turbo 2 ($624) represents a breakthrough for smartphone design. With its shatterproof screen, we're one step closer to an indestructible handset. Just keep in mind that the rest of this phone isn't nearly as tough as the display. The Turbo 2 also impresses with its loud speakers, fastest-ever recharging capability and speedy overall performance. Being able to customize your own phone online is yet another plus.

Comment

Model: The Motorola Droid Turbo 2 does not break, crack or shatter. Its shatterproof screen, coupled with the aluminum frame, makes it tough and durable regardless of dropping on a corner or face-first, stepping on the phone or throwing the phone off a tall building. Motorola gives a four-year warranty to the indestructible screen. Next, it is an overall package with upgraded performance especially in comparison to its predecessor - Moto X Pure. It is well-equipped with a 5.4 inch quad-HD AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 3 GB of RAM. On the flip side, the screen display is overly saturated and slightly dim, while it features a 2560 x 1440 resolution and 540 PPI pixel density.

Still, everything works fast and as it should be. The decent 3760 mAh battery with speedy wireless charging is an added advantage but does not hit the 48-hour promise. Besides, it comes with a SIM card slot and a MicroSD slot, which allows to expand its 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage by up to 200 GB. Its single front-facing speaker, unlike the twin stereo speakers, definitely offers a better user experience. Similar credit goes to its 21 MP rear camera from Sony, which captures details and accurate photos. Technically, it perfectly blends horsepower with hardiness in one body.

Qualcomm Adreno 430: Integrated smartphone and tablet GPU that supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and DirectX 11.2 (FL 11_1). The graphics card has 192 unified shaders clocked at up to 650 MHz. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
810 MSM8994:

High-end ARM SoC with 8 CPU cores (4x Cortex-A57 and 4x Cortex-A53) and an Adreno 430 GPU. Manufactured in a 20 nm HPM process.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.
79.86%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
