Motorola Droid Turbo 2 drop tests are here: see Moto's shatterproof screen vs. the competition

To show us once more how durable the screen of the Droid Turbo 2 is, Motorola today released a video (embedded below) presenting proper drop tests - including not just the new Turbo, but also some competing smartphones: Apple iPhone 6s, HTC One M9, LG G4, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, and Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
All phones were dropped from 5 feet (1.5 meters), face down, on a surface made out of concrete and sandpaper. All screens shattered, except for the one of the Motorola Droid Turbo 2.
As you can see in the second video embedded below - not made by Motorola - the shatterproof display of the Droid Turbo 2 even survived 50 feet (15 meters) drops. However, the handset itself stopped working (which would probably happen to any smartphone dropped from 50 feet anyway).
Mind you, dropping the Droid Turbo 2 just to see if it breaks is not advisable: the phone's body will most likely be damaged, since Motorola's shatterproof guarantee is related only to the display.
The Droid Turbo 2 is currently available only in the US, exclusively via Verizon Wireless. The handset will be released in other markets, including Europe and Asia, as the Motorola Moto X Force.

Well considering this new screen tech. I think most people are going to want this. This type of display will severely cut down on repairs. So in time I think most phones will use this. They will have to pay Lenovo/Motorola for this tech (patent). But I think it's well worth it.

Does anyone else find it disturbing that these guys are buying 600 plus dollar masterpieces of engineering just to break them? I know it's for advertising but dang it's cringe worthy

.... well, it's all for the sake of demonstrating the unique feature of the phone. They did nothing to those "600 plus dollar masterpieces of engineering" that they didn't do to their own phone. All perished except for the Droid. And suddenly no one cares about sapphire glass any more. lol.
