Motorola just solved one of the biggest problems with smart phones
The new Droid Turbo 2’s most noteworthy feature is its quasi-alliteratively named Moto ShatterShield display technology, which Motorola claims makes it the first smartphone with a shatterproof display.ShatterShield is made of five layers of material that absorb impact. Motorola claims the layers on the 5.4-inch Quad HD display “are proven not to crack or shatter.”Unfortunately, for now, the Droid Turbo 2 is exclusive to US carrier Verizon. The carrier is offering a four-year warranty on the display and embedded lens, though scratches and other kinds of damage to the lens aren’t covered by the warranty. Customers are also warned that the Turbo 2 isn’t shockproof nor built to withstand all damage from dropping.There is hope though that ShatterShield will make it to other Motorola devices: Rick Osterloh, Motorola’s president, told CNET the shatter-proof tech is expected to go on other Moto products, though because of the price related to the feature, only higher-end, flagship phones.
