There’s no such thing as an indestructible smartphone is there? After all, when you think about smartphones, you think delicate, precious and prone to cracks and scuffs thanks to unpredictable slippery fingers. If there were a such thing as an indestructible phone – the Droid Turbo 2 could be it!
Say hello to the Droid Turbo 2 armed with the world’s first shatterproof display from Verizon Wireless! The Moto ShatterShield is the world’s first smartphone display guaranteed not to crack or shatter and it’s exclusively found on the Droid Turbo 2. So what makes Moto ShatterShield so special? The display technology is an integrated system with five layers that absorb shock from impact and are proven not to shatter.
In addition to the shatter proof screen, the Droid Turbo 2 is power packed with more features than ever before. Long lasting battery? This Droid Turbo 2 has it! With a high capacity, 3760 mAh battery, you’ll power through today and tomorrow without giving battery life (or plugging into a power source) a second thought. But just in case you find yourself low on power, Droid TurboPower charging’s feature has you covered. Get a quick burst of energy when you need it most with the world’s fastest charging smartphone. TurboPower charging provides up to 13 hours of power in just 15 minutes of charging and on a full charge goes up to two full days without needing a recharge.
The Droid Turbo 2 camera features a sharp lens that captures your best moments in a flash. Leave the shutter lag behind with beautiful, true-to-life images in any light with the 21 MP camera. You’ll get the best results every time thanks to rapid focus with zero shutter lag and a color-balancing dual LED flash. For those who love a good selfie, the front facing camera is just for you. The front-facing 5 MP camera includes a wide-angle lens, which is great for fitting friends in the picture. And thanks to an extra flash on the front, everybody looks their best—even in low light. The Droid Turbo 2 camera is even smart enough to recognize QR codes, barcodes, business cards and automatically read them without a separate scanning app.
The Droid Turbo 2 has been designed from the inside out. Play games, stream video, and multitask at the speed of life. The ultra-powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 2.0 GHz octa-core CPUs, paired with 3 GB of blazing-fast memory, gives you all the performance you need. Bring your photos and videos to life in ultra-sharp detail with 77% more pixels than a 1080p display (2560 x 1440 resolution, 540 ppi). Even capture and playback amazing 4k video all on the same screen.
Droid Turbo 2 gives you all this in a sleek design with your choice of genuine pebbled leather, ballistic nylon and soft grip. That’s why Droid Turbo 2 is designed with a water-repellent coating to protect it from the inside out. Plus Droid Turbo 2 works with your favorite charging pads, so you can power up free from wires and clutter. With a smartphone jammed packed with goodness like this, why would you want any other device?
It’s always great to find a device that can deliver great quality across multiple levels like the Motorola Droid Mini. Recently, I got the chance to check out the device and how its use could fit within my busy life seamlessly. All month long, I’ve been patiently waiting for the arrival of my favorite season of the year, Autumn. Although, I’m not particularly a fan of the cooler temperatures – I have become a fan of the beautiful array of Fall colors that touch from high in the sky, to the sidewalks below. What better time than now to grab my Motorola Droid Mini and get some neighborhood snapshots of mother nature in action.
Did You Know: Motorola’s Quick Launch camera trick allows you to wiggle the phone to launch the camera for shutter use in an instant!
Droid Mini embodies all the great features you’d expect from a Droid smartphone in a compact design. Ultra thin and lightweight, Droid Mini is easy to hold and carry yet solidly built to handle life’s bumps, scrapes and spills. The 10-megapixel camera uses Motorola’s new, very simple camera interface with few options. There’s HDR, slow-motion video and a flash option that makes snapping photos in any environment a breeze.
Use Droid Mini’s entire screen as a viewfinder with no icons getting in your way. Intuitive gestures let you push to zoom; tap anywhere on the screen to take a shot or tap and hold to continuously shoot. Taking, reviewing and managing your media is fast and easy.
The photo quality for the price point is pretty attractive too! At only $49 with Verizon 2-year contract, the Motorola Droid Mini is a great supplemental device for that’ll keep your eyes and wallet happy all season long.

If you’re ready to ditch toting your charger EVERYWHERE you go – then the Motorola Razr Maxx is the way to go! At this time, you’re probably thinking, “Wait, I thought I already saw a review on the Motorola Droid Razr…” That part is true, but with all great mobile advances – it was only a matter of time until Motorola improved on the battery life of the Droid Razr, making the Droid Razr Maxx and amazing upgraded device.
If you recall my previous Droid Razr review (review it here) you’ll definitely see how how the two stack up against each other:
Both Droid Razr & Razr Maxx are relatively the same…except one HUGE difference in talk time.
Of course, with such a huge difference in talk time – I just HAD to put the battery life to the test. With more than 17 hours of texting, tweeting and talking (“You hang up. No you hang up. Okay, we’ll both hang up on three… One…Two… Three….Hello? No, you hang up…etc…”) – the Droid Razr Maxx absolutely backed up it’s battery claims. This it the perfect phone if you hate searching for power outlets in every restaurant and place of business you venture into. You could actually (dare I say it,) go an evening without charging your phone overnight without freaking out the next day with a dead phone.
If you’re a Verizon Wireless customer on the go – REJOICE! For once, using the mobile hotspot on your device won’t kill your battery. Connecting via WiFi using your laptop or tablet has just gotten alot easier with Droid Razr Maxx.
Filled with preloaded apps including the Smart Actions app makes everyday tasks easier by automating actions you do daily like adjusting ringer volume during office hours to playing your favorite playlist once for your daily gym workout.
Looking for speed? The Verizon 4G LTE is lighting fast! Surf the web superfast & grab downloads in an instant with the Droid Razr Maxx.
There are slight differences in size & design, however these barely noticeable differences are minute in comparison to the benefits of adding extra battery life without the bulk of an external battery pack.

In case you didn’t make the “nice” list this year, you have another chance to get the hottest smartphone available this holiday season. Grammy Award Winning recording artist Cee Lo Green, and Motorola Mobility, Inc. are making the holidays white for Los Angeles residents through a city-wide scavenger hunt for the ultimate winter prize: the festive DROID RAZR™ by Motorola in white.
Even if you picked up a Galaxy Nexus, Rezound or DROID RAZR some time in the last few weeks, I’m sure you wouldn’t say “no” to a free phone, would you? Motorola kicked off a new contest that will reward six lucky Twitter followers with a shiny new white DROID RAZR this holiday season. In order to enter, all you need to do is follow @Motorola and tweet something to your friends while including the hashtag #WhiteRazrXmas. Winners will be chosen on 12/27 – you can enter as many times as you’d like.
DROID RAZR by Motorola in white is a special treat for anyone on your gift list. As the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone available, this smartphone packs strength and smarts into a stylish, impossibly-thin package. Built with KEVLAR® fiber and a Corning® Gorilla® Glass display, the DROID RAZR by Motorola in white delivers cutting-edge visuals and innovative, software. MotoCast™ is a free Motorola solution that lets you stream or download your music, pics and more from your home or work PC to your phone – virtually anytime, anywhere. With the Smart Actions app, DROID RAZR is smart enough to extend battery life so you don’t have to worry about being caught without a charge on the last few shopping days. Plus, it will be upgraded to Android™ 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, making it a gift that will truly keep on giving.
If you’re a mobile connoisseur like me, chances are you remember all too well how stylishly haute the Motorola Razr was in the early 2000s. The sleek design & colorful options even inspired one of the first designer mobile collaborations a la the limited edition Dolce & Gabbanna Motorola Razr.
In order to resurrect the Motorola name & make it once again synonymous with cutting-edge tech, the company has returned to the brand that launched fashionable tech the MOTOROLA DROID RAZR. But is the newest addition to the Motorola Razr family worthy to make a fashion statement like its predecessor?
The extremely thin redesign is only scratching the surface of how redesigned this new RAZR really is. The shell of the phone is super thin, yet an extremely strong mix of aluminum, Kevlar and Gorilla Glass.
Like most smartphones, the Motorola Razr comes standard with contents that you would expect (charger, USB cable, quick start guide, etc.). Although there are additional interesting accessories, like the Lapdock 500 that turns the RAZR into a 14? Android netbook, but they’re sold separately.
Unlike it’s predacessor, the Droid Razr front is super tough with it’s Gorilla Glass coated screen. It’s a SuperAMOLED screen too, 4.3? big and with qHD (540×960 pixels) resolution. The RAZR weighs about 127g and is somewhat tall & wide (130.7 x 68.9 x 7.1 mm) – not for those with little hands. (But if you know how to keep a good grip on your phone, you should be just fine.)
The battery life is pretty consistent with most smartphones as well. Motorola promises that the non-removable 1,780mAh battery will deliver up to 8.5 days of standby time and 12.5 hours of talk, I’m not so sure about 12.5 straight hours of talk though (who could consistantly use their phone to test that out?) Just make sure you charge the phone nightly, (and keep the power chord on you during the day) if not – you may be outta luck. (Remember, non-removable battery means just that…keep that power chord handy.)
An 8 megapixel camera capable of capturing 1080p video with a single LED flash even has an image stabilization feature which is perfect for those of you with less than stable hands…
- The handset is a little too wide for for my petite hands…
- Questionable battery life (Motorola says it’ll last through 12.5 hours of talk)???
- Dual flash on the 5MP camera
- The LTE radio, 1.2GHz dual-core processor & 1GB of RAM make sure this sleek & powerful
- InPocket detection function locks your phone once its in pocket (or purse.) meaning…no more butt-dialing.
Over all this is a cool phone for the price and definitely worth purchasing as a holiday gift.
It’s thinner than almost any phone on the market and makes no sacrifices to attain its slim physique. Without a contract, it’ll cost you $649.99 without a contract or $299.99 two years in with Verizon. Few phones out there can even be put in the same category when it comes to build quality. With its razor-thin design, jam-packed features, and blazing speed, the Motorola Droid Razr is easily one of the year’s best & sharpest Android smartphones available today, not the sexiest or most fashionable but undoubtedly performance-wise, the best.
They’re at it again…the second punch has been thrown at the Apple iPhone by non other than the Verizon Droid X! Check out this print ad that has been seen coast to coast…
Sometimes a girl just wants a phone that DOES everything! DROID. X. DOES.
First off, the website is a bit over-robotic for me, but it’s clear that the Droid can be customized to suit whatever you need…after all it DOES everything…check out the site HERE.
But instead of giving our opinion of the Droid X vs the opulent Apple iPhone 4 – consider this an open forum for both Apple stans supporters and Droid users to make their arguments…
WHICH IS BETTER: APPLE IPHONE 4 or THE DROID X?
