Mysterious green line continues to affect some Motorola DROID Turbo 2 units

Some Motorola DROID Turbo 2 owners are having a big problem with the screen on their new phone. Sure, the glass is marketed as being shatterproof, but it is not supposed to have a green line running vertically down the screen. Some users who contacted Motorola about this were told to return the phone at Verizon since it is under warranty. One particular DROID Turbo 2 owner was practically treated as a criminal as the Verizon rep he met with accused him of dropping the device.

Apparently, Verizon has circulated a memo to reps that comes with a photo of the DROID Turbo 2 with the green line on the screen. The headline on the memo says something like "Droid Turbo 2 is shatterproof, not shock proof." Eventually, this Droid Turbo 2 owner, who says that he treated the phone with kid gloves, was sent back to Motorola where he originally was going to get a refurbished model. After speaking to various supervisors, he finally got Motorola to agree to send out a new handset. Meanwhile, the green line on his soon-to-be-replaced DROID Turbo 2 is growing wider.

If you have a Motorola DROID Turbo 2 with an unwanted green line that is ruining your experience with the phone, contact both Motorola and Verizon until you get satisfaction. And don't be satisfied with a refurbished model. Pawning off previously used handsets to customers who just agreed to spend a fortune on a new handset should not be tolerated.

If you are having the same problem with your DROID Turbo 2, we'd love to hear all about it. Drop your comments in the box below.

Thanks for the tip!

I would say poor QC, something Motorola has been known for recently.

Really? Examples please. Links to examples, I don't accept your lies with nothing to back them up as examples.

Hey! You learned how to Google! Right on! Now tell me, how does this differ from any other OEM out there? God knows, I could easily provide twice as many links in 5 minutes for any other OEM.

There you go, deflect when you can't respond because you know you're wrong.

What. You only claimed poor QC. You mean like Apple had? They check only so many phones, just like anyone else. How many links can we post about many OEM?

I got the Turbo 2 on Black Friday and haven't seen any screen issues. I have owned Motorola phones exclusively since 2010 and I refresh it once a year. I have not had any issues. Mxy, go away.

Just because you don't have the issue doesn't mean it doesn't exist you twit.

No site needs this many obtrusive ads, in the last 5+ years it has gotten so sad how much you rape us phonearena. may have to start using an adblocker for your site alone because it is absolutely ridiculous how much time i waste and how much worse it has gotten over the years. easier to watch free porn, c'mon

Adblocker on the laptop. Ad guard on my Note 5. This site is unusable without an adblocker..

you can use OpenDNS to remove those annoying pop ups. They show you device has virus and other battery issues

How do you use open OpenDns to block ads-pop ups?I only use it to filter unsuitable content. Thank you in advanced.

Thanks for the tip, if they keep up this harassment though im just going to stop visiting this site daily. Do you know if Adblocker can be used for just the sites that i specify? There are a few websites that i like to visit that aren't so abusive..

DOn't have any issues on my Note 5 without one.

I agree. On mobile the site is practically unusable. It's terrible having so many ads bombarding you at once.

Mxy, try purify in the App Store. Best content blocker I've tried.

Even I have blocked a PhoneArena banner that said "plz disable adblock to support us" using AdBlock :p

38. AlikMalix unregistered

I whitelist this website once a week to click on all the ads - to be fair. But I have no issues or banners using a content blocker app on iOS (not even jailbroken - just purify app). You should try it.

It is usual with Chinese products. I didn't expect anything else to happen to Motorola, after the Chinese purchased the company. Good old days for Motorola are over. I really never understood how stupid we were to sell this great company to cheap Chinese.

Lenovo Is A Respected Company And The Quality Of Their Products Is Good. All Smartphone Manufacturers Have Had Their Share Of Problems And Much Worse Than A Green Line On The Screen At That. The Only Thing Stupid Is Your Comment Bruh. Don't Drag My Typing Into This LOL.
