Motorola launches Droid Turbo 2 with shatterproof display.

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Verizon Wireless exclusives, the powerful Motorola DROID Turbo 2 and DROID Maxx 2 zap crystal clear photos and last through every adventure with over two days of battery life. Today, Motorola announced it’s bringing that same phone to the UK, with a new name — the Moto X Force — and sans the Verizon and Droid branding and bloatware. It shares some of the features of the higher-end Moto X Style – a 21 megapixel camera, for example – but it bumps down some of the specs to make it more affordable. It says its latest top-end Android smartphone has a screen that’s not just shatter-resistant but shatterproof, no matter how many times you drop the phone.

If the screen does break in normal use, which includes drops, impacts and falls, but excludes deliberate abuse, Motorola will replace it under a four-year guarantee. . Marcus Frost, senior marketing director for the company in Emea, insists that it is a wholly Motorola endeavour. “In the past we’ve innovated just because we can.

Now we’re attempting to make meaningful innovation, addressing consumer pain points of which battery life and smashed screens are key,” Frost said. The five-layer screen has a user-replaceable, scratch-resistant top layer, otherwise known as a screen protector, two touchscreen layers – just in case one breaks – and two rigid layers to hold it together. That means no annoying bloatware that you can’t get rid of, any currently included programmes such as Moto Assist look likely to be left out of the next version of the operating system Android Marshmallow.

LifeProof [®] encourages technology users to unleash the remarkable by taking their smartphone and tablet devices on every adventure regardless of dirt, sand, water, rocks and other environmental hazards. The rest of the smartphone’s specifications are similar to other versions of the company’s Moto X line, including the phone’s splash resistance. LifeProof is the No. 1-selling waterproof case in the U.S. and is committed to inspiring its customers to live an active, no-limits lifestyle.* The LifeProof name and LifeProof trademarks are the property of Treefrog Developments, Inc. registered in the U.S. and other countries. You can also tell the phone how to behave when you’re driving, instructing it to read text messages to you or announce the name of callers so you don’t take your hands off the wheel and your eyes off the road.

It easily lasted the day, and more often than not stretched into a second day, even with the kind of use that depletes the iPhone 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge in less than a day. That’s before you start relying on battery-saver mode, which will knock off the background data and location services to eke out a little more battery life. But the curved back that makes it fit so well in your hand adds a bit of bulk, and the two front-facing speakers, while delivering better audio than if they were placed elsewhere, add to the phone’s height.

It uses tap to shoot, which means if you try to tap on the screen to change the focus or exposure you can end up with the intended subject out of focus. It’s not immediately obvious, but swipe in from the right and you get extra options that allow you to control focus and exposure, and toggle the HDR on and off, among other things.
