My Turbo 2 Experience
PSAfromThisGuy has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Overall I have always had a Motorola. Well, my first smartphone was actually a Blackberry Storm (Storm 2 after doing an insurance claim). Motorola has always been much more reliable and durable from my experience. I have been working in the cellphone industry for 7 years now and Motorola's always seem to hold up longer and withstand a pretty decent beating. I started with the Droid X, then Droid Razr MAXX, Droid MAXX, now the Turbo 2. Waiting for the next big thing to come, after the Z Force of course.

Another Great Phone
manzer has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I was very happy with the Motorola Droid Turbo last year. The battery life and the quick charge was amazing. This time around I'm still very impressed. The screen is what amazes me. More true to a sheet of paper, wider screen not taller like iphone. My wife has the iPhone 6s plus and they share the same width but hers is 3/4 of an inch taller. The phone is fast. And the biggest reason to stick with Motorola is the ecosystem. No push to touch, I hate home buttons. I use trusted Bluetooth for security. Simple twist to torn the camera on. Two motions to turn on the flashlight. Camera is improved. I picked up the 32gb version because it has a SD card slot for extra memory. I'm sold. Did I mention, no physical home button to turn it on. And keep your fingerprint scanner, they all lag.

Motorola Droid Turbo 2
RubyNinja has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I have always enjoyed using Motorola Droid phones, my first smartphone was a Droid Mini, and the Turbo 2 is no exception when it comes to quality. It has proven to be a reliable utility that I use everyday.The UI is smooth, and it almost never staggers or freezes, probably due to its 3 GB of RAM and clean android interface. Some might complain about the lack of features. But for a person who just wants his phone to WORK, and not have to worry about bugs and such, it makes an incredible smartphone. The Aluminum frame makes the phone feel sturdy. Since the phone has the Snapdragon 810, it tends to overheat slightly when taxed with heavy graphics, or heavy internet usage. However, the heat never seems to be at a dangerous level, and it never is too heated to hold in the hand. I would recommend this phone to people who put reliability and long lasting hardware, high on their priority list.
Another Average phone from Moto
krzyaz has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I've had the phone for 9 months. In the past, I've owned the Razr, OG Droid, Droid X, and Bionic. After the Bionic, i swore off Moto. Due to availability and time pressure, I ended up with a Droid Turbo 2. I've lived with it, worked with it, etc. It is another average performer from Moto. The voice recognition is pretty good and defaults to a google search when it doesn't know what you are asking. The screen is plenty bright. The device is fast enough for productivity. The camera resolution was played up and resulted in average quality images. The unbreakable screen is indeed unbreakable, but scratches too easily. This is another example of an average device that Moto has left behind as their loss leader while trying to push out the next gimmick (modular design?). Sure, the 'pure' android experience is there but there's just nothing.... special about this flagship. I'm paying this one off and going back to my previous brand.
Impressive Phone All-around
Wolfgang has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I was deeply committed to my Kyocera Brigadier for over three years until finally deciding I need to catch up with the latest developments in the Android OS. That said, I also wanted a device that was at least as somewhat durable in comparison Brigadier.
What sold me on the Droid Turbo 2 is the shatter proof screen and Kevlar backing. Without a case, this phone is perfectly capable of withstanding a good drop or three.
As far as the specs go, this device is truly a powerhouse. To state a few examples; Handles multitasking with ease; bright screen that is perfect for outside use; phenomenal camera quality; built-in wireless charging capabilities; large battery capacity.
My only qualm with this phone is the 4G LTE radio. It's a Cat4 which provides maximum speeds of 150/50 Mbit/s. Nearly all other phones in the same price range have double the speed LTE Advanced Cat6 300/50 Mbits/s.This really doesn't make a difference unless you live in a major city, though. LTE Advanced is really only available in large urban areas.
Overall, this is a great phone and I highly recommend to those curious.
Motorola's headed the right direction with their new phones

Overall the Droid Turbo 2 is a great phone. I like what Motorola did with the plastic screen and the turbo charger creating a shatter proof screen and being able to charge the phone faster than ever while still doing it safely and not overcharging. I can't wait to get the Marshmallow update, and see what CyanogenMod or AOKP can do with it.
Fast phone and great battery
pbike908 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Fast phone! Some of the Moto actions are nice such as moto display, proximity smart lock and location smart lock, but can be cumbersome to unlock due to lack of finger print reader, awkward power button, and no double tap.
Great battery and turbo charging is nice.
Cumbersome integration of dialer and contact manager -- workable but if I was a heavy phone user opposed to app user I would find it annoying.
Decent phone but not worth $625. I wouldn't rate it as good as flagships from other vendors -- not even close!!!

Great, well built, highly-spec'd device.
InvaderExx has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
After reading a lot of reviews and researching this device, I decided to give the Droid Turbo 2 a chance. Coming from a Nokia Lumia Icon running Windows 10, I wanted a good camera and a solidly built device that could survive a fall. Everything about this phone screams high quality. I got the gray kevlar back, it feels good in the hand although it is a tad bit too smooth, but nothing that'll make me drop the device if I were laying down. The screen is great, large, bright and vibrant and you couldn't expect more from such a high resolution AMOLED screen. I even purposely dropped the device face down onto a ceramic tile floor from about 4 feet and the device and screen withstood the drop and didn't have a scratch, ding or scuff on it. I've seen a lot of people complain about the bloatware Verizon puts on the device, but to me it was not even a huge deal, it takes less than 5 minutes to disable and hide the apps so it's not a huge deal. And in reality it was only like 4 apps that I can remember that were Verizon branded. It's been a long time since I've been on an Android device, and so far I'm really happy with the device and the OS. It does everything I need effectively and efficiently (for the most part, coming from Windows 10 and BlackBerry 10 before that, I miss the true multitasking capabilities of BB10). The last major thing I'd like to mention is the camera. It's a 21 megapixel camera. It works well in normally lit areas, but in night time, it's not so amazing. My Lumia...
Sweet Jesus Motorola has done it again
Lavden has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Honestly the fact that I'm writing a review should say a lot, hell I made an accoun just to write this. If you get this phone you won't regret it. It's wicked fast, and the battery life is awesome! The one downside is that it's a little bigger than most phones I've had and my hands are on the smaller side. However the dimple on the back, combined with plastic or rubber grip makes the big phone fit in your hand nicely. It feels tough, and the plastic screen is harder to scratch than you'd think. It is scratchable, but you'd have to have your keys in the same pocket as your phone, and then run a mile. All in all, AMAZING phone. Motorola knows what they're doing.

If you are looking for a durable phone with an all day battery you should consider this phone. The extra $$ is worth the shatterproof screen and huge battery.
Not for you if you want a thin light phone that you can easily handle with one hand.

Came from the Motorola Maxx HD
andthereyouare has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I am a Motorola loyal, just always like the brand. My last phone(Razr Maxx HD) was great; but, I wanted a new one with a faster connection to the web. This one delivers. It is bigger, yet still fits in my front pocket(although I wished it was the same size as the first turbo). The screen is shatterproof so I see on youtube; but, I can tell you it scratches very easily which is a bummer in my mind. I opted for a case, which sucks cause now you can't see the phone. I also opted for the 32gb size and simple added a 64gb card. Battery is similar to my old phone, which was great. And this new turbo charger is awesome.

Nothing Better For My Money
rickstheman has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
If you look at what a lot of people say they want in a smartphone, you will find that the Turbo 2 is ranks number one or near the top in every category. I did a lot of research on this purchase and right now there is nothing else available that I would want. The new Google Apps (Marshmallow) are available now for Lollipop and I dare say that a lot of you are like me, and really cannot say what you will be able to do differently with Android 6.0. The phone is lightning fast and has all sorts of cool features I thought I might miss the "finger print sensor" for unlocking the phone; but the phone never locks as long as it is in my pocket or in my hand. Checkout this phone for yourself and you will be glad that you did

You can't deny the options and specs on this phone, it blows away the Iphone 6S. It is fast, good battery, good build, and looks good. I am not sure what more you could ask for. You need to give this phone a look if you are in the market for a new one!
