Motorola Moto X Force now available to pre-order in the UK

Motorola Moto X Force now available to pre-order in the UK
Released in the US since last week, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is also coming to Europe and Asia, though under a different name: Moto X Force.

As of this week, folks in the UK can pre-order the Moto X Force and expect to receive it as soon as November 9. Handtec is asking £497.99 (or about €700) for a SIM-free Motorola Moto X Force, while Carphone Warehouse is offering the smartphone for £529.99, or on monthly plans starting at £37.50 per month. At the moment, only the black version of the handset seems to be available to order.

Just like the Droid Turbo 2 (which is exclusively sold by Verizon Wireless), the Moto X Force sports a 5.4-inch shatterproof display with 1440 x 2560 pixels. This screen is guaranteed not to crack or shatter for 4 years, and drop tests are confirming that it should survive any everyday accident.

Currently running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, the Moto X Force will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow (though Motorola didn't say exactly when this would happen). The handset is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, further featuring a 21 MP rear camera with 4K video recording, a 5 MP front-facing camera with flash, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a generous 3760 mAh battery.

You know....this phone is a beast. An absolute beast. This is a phone 2 years ago we wished someone would moto would make. It has everything a person could want. A large battery. Larger quad HD amoled screen, SD card slot, 3gb ddr4 ram and a shatterproof screen, super light motor OS. If this was the nexus 5p they would sell tons. Sorry just had to say it....seems like everything I want I cannot realistically have. :"""""( BEAST PHONE....

Well, it doesn't have a finger print scanner, or IR blaster... But yeah, beast phone! .... too bad I can only get it with loads of crap bloatware pre installed with the Droid Turbo 2. :( Oh well.

Precisely ! Only lack of finger print scanner is a big minus for me, the rest is just amazing !

I would take a shatterproof screen over useless features anyday. Finger print scanner i can easily live whitout ( password work perfectly well ) IR blaster... i already have a controller for my tv lol. As for crap bloatware... Just use a one click root solution like kingroot or kingo root both will make it possible for you to uninstall all those crap then you just with 1 click unroot it.

I really can't live without a fingerprint scanner anymore. It's one of those things that you never knew you wanted, and you can't really go back. Tried to use my old Droid Maxx after having my GS6 for a month, entering the password took ages. And I find myself wishing I could link my fingerprint to everything that requires a password.

I have my current phone setup with a lot of trusted devices (NFC tags) and locations so I can bypass my 11 character password. But I think I would much rather have a fingerprint scanner and never have to worry about security again. lol, It's just frustrating because I keep flip flopping as to which phone to buy next, the Nexus 6P or the Droid Turbo 2...

Have you been to the Verizon store to try out the Turbo 2 in hand? That made up my mind.

13. Scott93274

No, not yet, I might go tomorrow to try it out. I wish I could try them both out before having to pick one over the other.

Obviously you can't do a hands on of the 6P, but you can use the V10 as a stand-in.

lol, the V10 is such an odd ball of a smartphone if you ask me. But if it's similar in display quality, size and build as the Nexus, I suppose I can have a look at it. Thanks for the recommendations.

Well, my other recommendation for size is the iPhone 6S Plus, but the V10 is the appropriate screen size/bezel/screen:body ratio. And it has the rear fingerprint scanner. I have way too much fun with PA's size comparator.

Yeah, I really wish Motorola put fingerprint scanners on their devices so people can have very convenient security AND Motorola's software experience/battery life. It's weird, because the Atrix was one of, if not the first commercial smartphone with a fingerprint scanner, and they never went back to it.

If I go with the Droid, and right now it really looks like I'll be leaning that way, I'll probably end up rooting it. I just really wish that it mirrored the Moto X Pure 100% with its software. Oh well.

You had to know the Droid was going to be chock full of bloatware. Hey, at least the free games are deletable.

PS....I'm kinda poor. A middle class poor. But poor. First world problems...

"At the moment, only the black version of the handset seems to be available to order." That's because the white version is an abomination. Just a mess of sensors and grilles.

Assuming PA's specs are correct, and Moto is including all the LTE bands they are in the Pure/Style, this would be a great phone to import and use on T-Mobile or LTE. But after import costs and price jacks, it'll cost $900.

Exactly. It's not realistic to get one.

Amazon UK will probably carry it and the shipping shouldn't be so bad. You might luck out. Have hope

What SAR ratio this phone?

22. uzimafioso

It doesn't matter. SAR threshold already takes account of the factor of safety and Motorola can not release a phone which crosses it anywhere in the world. So it doesnt matter. SAR values become important when buying from Chinese OEMs.
