Motorola’s Droid Turbo 2: Hands-on with the world’s first shatterproof smartphone

Around this time of year, when users are swamped with countless new smartphones to choose from, vendors have to find some way to distinguish themselves. This can be especially difficult for an Android device released at the end of October, but Verizon and Motorola found a way to pique my interest with the unveiling of the Droid Turbo 2 on Tuesday.

Motorola Droid Turbo 2 Shatterproof Display

Apple needs to consider stealing the Droid Turbo 2’s best feature

Apple needs to consider stealing the Droid Turbo 2’s best feature

You know what’s the worst? Dropping your smartphone and having its display shatter. I’ve seen this happen to countless friends’ devices over the years and it doesn’t seem to matter how strong Corning makes its Gorilla Glass. The iPhone in particular seems to suffer from easily cracked displays, although I’ve seen plenty of cracked Android phones out in the wild as well. That’s why I really hope that Apple and every other smartphone vendor out there at least considers stealing the Droid Turbo 2’s best new feature: Its shatterproof display. More →

Moto 360 Review

Hands on: Meet the new Moto 360

Hands on: Meet the new Moto 360

By on September 2, 2015 at 3:00 PM.

Motorola’s Moto 360 smartwatch was arguably the first such device worthy of our attention when it debuted in 2014. The Android-powered watch was sleek and stylish in a world full of clunky, unattractive designs, adding some much-needed style to the Android smartwatch landscape. But the very fact that it was an Android smartwatch was one of its biggest problems; Android Wear was great in concept, however in reality it was practically unusable for the average consumer.

On Wednesday, Motorola unveiled the second-generation versions of its Moto 360 smartwatch, looking to improve on the first-generation version in every way possible. While it did accomplish that goal to an extent, the original model’s biggest problems may still be barriers for many users.

With the new Moto 360, Motorola chose to focus on a few different key areas, with the first and most obvious being personalization. The first-gen model offered buyers a few different choices when it came to case color and band type, but the new version takes things to an entirely new level. More →
