Droid Turbo 2 dropped 70 times in torture test, will it survive?

  1. Motorola captured headlines last week with the announcement of two new Droid-branded smartphones. The flagship Droid Turbo 2 really turned heads – not so much due to its specifications – but because it claims to have a shatter-proof display thanks to technology that Motorola calls ShatterShield.

    Of course, this claim had to be put to the test which is exactly what Gizmodo recently did.

    As the publication notes, most any phone can survive an errant drop or two… but how about 70 consecutive drops onto a gritty floor? Watch along to see if the Droid Turbo 2 lives up to the marketing hype.

    Found is a TechSpot feature where we share clever, funny or otherwise interesting stuff from around the web.

    Now try dropping the phone on something other than a flat floor, clear of anything that might actually puncture the screen.

    He is probably paid for this 10 times more than the guys who design the damn thing. Wouldn't you just keep dropping things also?

    Damn right I would, I wouldn't even blush when I got my pay cheque at the end of the month. I'm jealous.

    I'd like to see this dropped from five feet at every conceivable angle onto a gravel road to see just how tough it really is.
