More than 100 Motorola employees drop their Moto Z2 Force at the same time to show off ShatterShield

Motorola shook up the mobile world in 2015 when it introduced a shatter-proof screen for the Motorola DROID Turbo 2. The ShatterShield technology was refined and subsequently deployed on Motorola's next two flagship models, the Moto Z Force and the Moto Z2 Force. With its multi-layered approach, and the use of P-OLED instead of glass, the ShatterShield display is designed to survive a fall of five-feet or less without cracking or breaking.

With the ShatterShield display, the biggest fear that phone owners have is gone. Because the screen is plastic though, it is more sensitive to scratches as many Moto Z2 Force owners have recently discovered. Still, the layer that is prone to scratches can be replaced, although it will cost a bit of money. For example, the replacement layer costs $30 for the Moto Z Force. By the way, the five layers that make up the ShatterShield include:

  • Layer 1: Scratch-resistant replaceable lens.
  • Layer 2: Primary polycarbonate lens.
  • Layer 3: ShatterShield touch sensor.
  • Layer 4: Flexible OLED display.
  • Layer 5: High strength aluminum core.

To show off the ShatterShield screen, Motorola recently rounded up more than 100 employees from its Chicago office and took them outside where all of them dropped their phones at the same time. Apparently, not one display cracked. Check it out by clicking on the video at the top of the story!

That's impressive!
There are more Z2 Force than they're going to sell!

Still putting a dBrand on it... or better yet, a Supcase, along with tempered-glass. Call me paranoid.

I'll just call you smart (It is a plastic screen, so it wont crack, but it will scratch.)

Of course not a single display cracked. Do you think they would have shown it if it did? Drop tests and other phone durability stunts are just ridiculous.
