Motorola's New Droid Turbo 2 – Another Smartphone Addition

The latest Droid, sports a shatterproof screen and a tremendous battery life.

Motorola Mobility was established in 2011 following the split of Motorola into two companies, with Motorola Solutions catering to the enterprise segment. Acquired soon after by Google, Motorola Mobility was sold to Lenovo in 2014. Motorola made its first Android smartphone in 2009, and its first Android tablet in 2011. As of their current lot, there’s the Droid Turbo 2. Motorola Droid Turbo 2 smartphone was launched in October 2015. The phone comes with a 5.40inch touchsceen display with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 2560 pixels at a PPI of 540 pixels per inch. The Motorola Droid Turbo 2 runs Android 5.1.1 and is powered by a 3760mAh non removable battery. The Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is a single SIM smartphone that accepts a Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, 4G. Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer and Gyroscope.

Motorola's design language is nothing if not consistent. You can identify one of the company's phones from a mile away; the rounded body, the curved back, the landing strip with the iconic Motorola M on the rear. Up top, the earpiece is flanked by a large flash and front-facing 5-megapixel camera. The whole thing is covered with a layer of Motorola's new proprietary ShatterShield glass, the many charms of which we'll happily explore down below. But for all of its charms, the covering is extremely glossy and adds a level of plastic artifice that somewhat cheapens the feel of an otherwise premium-built phone.

Along the edges a curved, metal frame that lends the phone a solid line, broken up on the corners by exposed antenna bands. On the right side is a volume rocker and a power button with a ribbed surface to better distinguish the two while blindly fumbling for the buttons. The top houses the power jack and sim/SD slot and the bottom, naturally, is where the microUSB port lives. Like the midtier Moto X, the Droid Turbo features a 1440 x 2560 display, albeit jammed into a 5.4-inch display. It's a sharp screen, at 540 PPI that does quite well with high-def video.

The Droid Turbo 2's battery life is, simply put, terrific. A 3,760-mAh battery is insanely large for a phone of this size. And that's a great thing. Motorola promises 48 hours of battery life. The Turbo features the same sort of super-fast charging seen on the Moto X. The rest of the specs are solid, as well. The processor is a 2.0 GHz octacore Snapdragon 810, a step up from the hexacore 808 found on the Moto X. There's a decent 3 GB of RAM and hearty 32- or 64-GB of storage on-board.

A shatterproof screen, a ridiculously large battery life, a good camera, customizable designs, and all-around solid specs. 2015 has already been a fruitful year for Motorola, and the Droid Turbo 2 ups the ante in a lot of important ways. Hopefully its focus on battery and rugged design will be enough to signal something of a sea change in the smartphone space. The phone is priced at ₹41,999.
