Motorola’s Droid Turbo was one of the most well-received phones by the public. It offered a superb screen, a good camera, and an impressive battery life. Although it may not have the design that everyone’s looking for, it still delivered the goods.
Normally, successors of a product just improve on the areas that were established by the previous version.
So today, we are going to talk about the successor of the Droid Turbo, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2. Does it have what it takes to be the worthy successor to the Droid Turbo? We will find out in this article.
As mentioned in the above paragraphs, the successor of a product will normally just improve on the things laid out by the predecessor. The first phone did not have great looks and, unfortunately, the Droid Turbo 2 doesn’t have better looks either.
On the front side of the phone, all I can really say is that it is busy. It is busy looking because of the fact that the logo, the split speaker grills, the front camera with LED flash, and microphone are also situated on the front.
If you can imagine all of those, then you’re in for a phone that has a lot of things present in the front door. At the back of the phone, it is a little bit better. It’s got a back cover that has some small diamond pattern to it and it also has the “Droid” name at the bottom, the rear camera on the top portion, an LED flash just below it and the Motorola “M” symbol just below the LED flash.
I know that the design of the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 isn’t that great so I will just go on ahead and talk about the display. The Motorola Droid Turbo 2’s display is actually very durable. In fact, it is protected by the mobile phone company’s proprietary “Shattershield Technology”. Basically, the display is protected with 5 layers of glass to ensure that the phone’s display won’t be shattered due to accidental drops.
As for the actual display itself, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 comes with a 5.4-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560x1440 and a pixel count of 540ppi. It is not as good as Samsung’s own Super AMOLED display but it does provide a good viewing experience.
The Turbo 2’s performance package is also topnotch. Under the hood, you will find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-processor which has a clock speed of 2GHz and it also comes with the Adreno 430 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
The camera of the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is decent enough. It’s got a 21-megapixel rear camera and a good 5-megapixel front camera. The phone doesn’t have the optical image stabilization technology so you may want to keep your hands steady when taking pictures. Also, should the environment you capture images from having low-lighting, the quality of the image may worsen.
To give all the juice this phone needs, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 comes with a very hefty 3,760 MaH battery. It also has a turbo charge function which allows you to charge the phone within 4 hours from a dead battery.
And lastly, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 comes with 4G LTE connectivity which is a huge plus in today’s world. Given that this phone supports the newest internet standard, it will help its overall performance if you get the help of mobile phone signal boosters.
With that being said, although the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 doesn’t have the classiest design out there, it does have all of the other corners covered.
