Motorola Droid Turbo 2: all new features

The Verizon-bound Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is the new kid on the phone block and it hides an ace up its sleeve: the promise for two full days of battery life and a display unlike any other.

While others focus on a sleek, thin profile, the Droid Tubo 2 puts battery on the top spot of its priorities and trades this for a bit of added girth. For all else, it's out there with the best phones that you can buy right now: it sports Qualcomm's top of the line Snapdragon 810 system chip, promising camera and plentiful internal storage.

In the slideshow below, we try to tell you about its 15 most important new features that make it stand out among all the others. Take a look and let us know: how do you like the new Droid Turbo 2?

How does number 5: "Wider than your average phone" count as a feature, even price is not a feature.

Don't forget the unbalanced-looking Verizon checkmark at the bottom! Innovation!

I think this is a decent phone. Lots of complaint here, but I like it. People complain that the Galaxy phones did away with the sd slot for aesthetics now they complaint that this phone is ugly. lol.

Fail. Here's why. Moto display QUALITY are subpar. Have been for a while. 810 Processor version 1,2,3,4,...doesn't matter. All have heat issues. RAM speed and management are average. Battery life. For the size of the battery you would think it'll be able to take down the S6 Active, we'll see. All in all Moto call quality is about the only thing is it excels at.

Have to agree. Another phone will be doomed by 810, I'm sure that with better chip, from Intel or Sammy it would get even better battery life. 2 days with 3700 mah is nothing to be proud of, Z3 could do it with 3000 mah. 810 is total disaster and it made this year one big flop in Android industry. I love the design though, but I have to say: Another day, another phablet. How cool is THAT?

Do you really think Motorola is so dumb that they wouldn't make sure the 810 chip has been fixed before they put it in their flagship phone???? You don't think they test their phones many times? The heat issues have been corrected and the RAM speed/management is great. The Moto displays are top-notch and one of the features that makes the phone so great. The phone wins in every function that really matters...durability, screen, battery, performance, OS experience, and camera. Winner...

It'll probably have worse battery life than its predecessor because of the 810 eating it's juice up.

Of course it comes with "Flagship Price" seeing how it is the next Droid "Flagship" device.

Does the "Droid" name still carry any weight? I suppose Verizon thinks so, but "Droid" just seems so out of date to me, phones of yesteryear like the Evo and MyTouch lines...

I'm sure there's still a contingent of loyal Droid users, but anectodally, I've seen many move on to Samsung or even iPhone. It was a great brand from 2009-2010, but now it's more of a VZW niche product. I got one for the attention the line gets from Verizon, but moreso for the mostly stock Moto software. If the Moto X had a bigger battery and more storage, I would have gotten that instead.

I like Motorola's direction with the phones. I don't think width was the right choice to sacrifice for battery capacity. Keep the battery capacity and expand how anker does it. Also, the screen of the the moto pure is excellent, hopefully they've included the same quality and not that of the nexus 6. Hopefully the OS stays clean from a software standpoint. All manufacturer's have been busted with qualcomm's mistakes - it would have been better for qualcomm to create a faster series 32 bit chip for 2015 to create time for a custom 64 bit chip for 2016.

Another great innovation by Android manufacturer Motorola. Recall Motorola had first ever fingerprint sensor on smart phone in their flagship phone Atrix in 2011 (2 years before Apple iphone). So Motorola is great leader at innovation - not so great at keeping the features around though. Hope other Android manufacturers pickup shatter proof screens soon.

What I am wondering is what is the max speed of a SD card can the turbo 2 handle?
