Motorola breaks a Galaxy S7 and an iPhone 6s in these new Droid Turbo 2 commercials
Available exclusively on Verizon since October, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is now overshadowed by the batch of newer and more powerful smartphones released this year, and yet it's still got a feature that no other handset is offering: a shatterproof display.

Thanks to what Motorola is calling ShatterShield technology, the 5.4-inch Quad HD display of the Droid Turbo 2 is guaranteed not to crack or shatter for 4 years. Numerous drop tests have confirmed the fact that the screen of the Turbo 2 is indeed invincible, even surviving drops from 50 feet (15 meters).

To remind everyone about how tough the display of the Droid Turbo 2 is, Motorola today released two short video commercials. The first commercial features a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge that easily shatters when dropped, while the second one shows an iPhone 6s which is also heavily damaged when hitting the ground. Motorola doesn't actually mention the name of these devices, but we can easily recognize them. Both videos end with Motorola praising the Droid Turbo 2's shatterproof screen which "can save your world."

Verizon is currently selling the Droid Turbo 2 for $24 per month (for 24 months), or $624 off contract. The smartphone is also available outside the US as the Moto X Force. If you want to find out more about the device, check out our Motorola Droid Turbo 2 review.

Would you buy a Droid Turbo 2 / Moto X Force now for its shatterproof screen?

At least Motorola acknowledges who the top dogs are. Too bad Moto killed this phone due to their garbage customer support and reputation. Don't buy a Verizon branded Moto device. Moto will tell you next year that it will no longer receive updates. Their documented upgrade is nothing but a lie. RIP Motorola!

Its not Motorola fault, its Verizon. Even the first 1080p phone the HTC Droid DNA got really bad updates. Verizon ruins all the Top Dog phones.

Not true...I had a Motorola Photon, and when sales were not steep enough they cut support for upgrades three months after it launched. "No future upgrades...anyone wanting a new upgrade must buy a new phone, and we will give them 50.00 for the old phone to apply towards the new phone". I was like WTF...went to the web site saw that in writing and I responded why give you my 3 month old new phone for 50.00 when I can sell it on Craigs list or Ebay for 150.00-200.00. They disposed of that response with in minutes of my posting. I responded by selling my Photon for 175.00 with in minutes of them taking that down.ROFL Never ever buy Motorola....decent products with great antenna mediocre specs no support. It ended up being the most expensive Nexus, and I will never get over 150.00 for it if I am lucky. I only Bought the Nexus 6 for two reasons reception and Google software support....any other phone from Motorola=fail.

Coming from a company who wont even send a new phone to its customers on a warranty replacement? Yeah, that's why you're getting sued. You cant even repair yoru own broken phone. You didnt even make enough to replace the ones you get back, but in yoru ad you want to break someone elses phone ? STUPID! But send those phones to Apple and Samsung and I am sure they will repair them. In fact they may even be nice enough to send you a refurb. Goodbye Moto, you left a bad taste in so many customers mouths. No one is goign to buy your crappy ass phones. I haven't looked at a Motorola since the Atrix and the Droid Bionic or whatever it was called. Oh and changing the OEM name to Lenovo, doesn't make the phones any better. In 5 years you guys wont even be making phones. So sad for a company who was once the USA's communication leader and gave us one of the first mobile phones.

I have two Moto device so i guess that shows my bias however I have never had an issue with their warranty. The two devices I have are the Droid Turbo 2 and a Moto X pure. One other thing to keep in mind as your trolling is that the Turbo 2 is a carrier specific device hence the warranty is handled by Verizon.

Apple neither repairs or sends a refurb to their customers. When my iPhone 6S+ started to act up, they have me a brand new phone without any questions asked. This was under the standard 1yr warranty too.

So far my Moto X Pure Edition is holding up fine. In the past they replaced my Moto X 2014 with no problem and no hassle. Got a replacement in the mail with a return envelope to return the broken device. My experience with Motorola customer service has been great so far. Here hoping it continues that way.

I like the animation though. So what is Moto's screen made of. Also since GG4 is pretty touch, wouldn't making the glass twice as thick make it even tougher? Does it have to be 2MM thin? Why not 5MM thin?

you are stupid as f**k, how many bent iphones did apple replace? samsung i wont even bother with, there is nothing to say except touchwiz.

Depends, they never publicly admitted to it being a problem but there are quite a few stories of people getting their phones fixed under warranty. It's hard to find a definitive answer. No idea what touchwiz has to do with fixing phones.

no, smartphone glass is less than 1mm thick, and even if you make it 20mm thick its still crack at normal drop.. the one that turbo 2 use is plastic.. it wont crack but easily get scratched, even coin and keys can scratch ir (check in JerryRig vids)

I got the Moto X Force for £299 and its fantastic. I was unhappy with my nexus 6p for a couple of reasons, and got this for almost half the price and have been loving it.

agreed and the turbo 2 is basically the same device with an upgraded CPU. People who think Moto is crap have not used one lately

Motorola was the isht until late 2012. The DROID RAZR HD was the last Motorola phone that I really wanted. I got the DROID Maxx early 2014 & swapped into the Note 3 a week later. Haven't looked back since.

You haven't seen the drop test someone made of Droid Turbo 2 from a drone like 100ft up in the air? Isn't that a bit of exaggeration?

Its common knowlegde the s7 is fragile, the iphone 6 will, its a bender, while the droid have always been well built/stronger. I would have been impressed if there was a s6 active or and lg v10 as they are stronger phone. Either way
