The newest smartphone from Motorola is supposed to be shatterproof!  It’s called the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 on Verizon.  The company even offers a 4 year warranty if the screen does, in fact, shatter.  It’s not in my tech guy DNA to drop a phone but I’m up for the challenge!

Ok, that’s all good and plenty but what about the shatterproof claim?  I took the Droid Turbo 2 into our Fox31 stairwell with a black tile floor.  I dropped it over and over again.  It feel on the corner, flat on the face and the other way around.  I dropped it from about 4 or 5 feet.  Nothing!  Not even a scratch.  This is insane!  I wouldn’t recommend dropping it on purpose but it’s good to know you don’t have much to worry about.

On top of this if you do figure out a way to crack or shatter the screen, Motorola has your back.  They offer a 4 year warranty to back up their bold claim.

I love this phone.  It’s not too big, it’s not too small.  It’s packed with power, a great camera and one of the best batteries you’ll find.  The shatterproof protection is icing on the cake.  I didn’t even get into the fact that Motorola lets you customize it with your specific colors and textures before they ship it.  If you’re on Verizon and you prefer Android, I think this is the phone to get right now.

The Verizon Droid Turbo 2 is available right now on Verizon for $21.83/mo for 2 years or $624.
