Description

The Motorola DROID Turbo 2 is a high-end Android beast available exclusively on Verizon's network. One of its stand-out features is the display, protected by Motorola's ShatterShield technology, making it highly resistant to cracking. Plus, the Turbo 2 is the first DROID eligible for the Moto Maker treatment, allowing one to choose between various materials and color combinations prior to ordering their personalized handset. Hardware specs include a Snapdragon 810 SoC with 3GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage, plus a microSD card for storage expansion. The main camera provides 21MP of resolution and promises good low-light performance, while the 5MP front cam should snap pretty selfies. And with a 3760mAh battery with quick charging, the DROID Turbo 2 endures through a couple of days of regular use.
