Watch Motorola’s Droid Turbo 2 smartphone’s display survive an ultimate 900 feet drop

Motorola made a unique promise with its Droid Turbo 2 that it was world’s first ‘shatterproof’ smartphone. Now that is a tall claim to make in a industry occupied by thousands of manufacturers. Therefore the team at this year decided to take on Motorola’s claim that its Droid Turbo 2 is the first smartphone ever to have a “shatterproof” display,

The team decided to put it to the ultimate test by dropping it from more than 900 feet in the air. The team attached Droid Turbo 2 to an aerial drone and then flew the drone way up in the air. Once it had reached 900 feet, the team let the Droid Turbo 2 drop to the ground. The results that came out may surprise even the most diehard Motorola fan.


Not only did the phone’s display not shatter when it landed from its drop but the phone itself was also was still fully functioning. As you can see in the photo above, there was some damage to the the device’s upper-left hand corner but overall it was still responsive to touch input.

Luckily for us Unlock River Times also made a video of the drop test which is given below :

The Droid Turbo 2 uses an aluminum chassis to create a durable foundation, then it adds both interior and exterior lenses as well as a dual touch layer over the device’s AMOLED display. Given all these layers of protection, it has been reported that the Droid Turbo 2 can survive anything but a bullet shot at a point blank range.
