Purchased two of the Motorola Droid Turbo 2Â’s, and found the handsets to be excellent aggravation generators. Since day one, both devices were showing indicators of being problematic. When talking on the phones, we were getting feedback from the people we were calling that it sounded like Â“You are in the bottom of a well...Â” Or asked, Â“Do you have me on speaker phone? If so, please stand closer to the phone.Â” This even devolved into situations where we could hear them, and they could not hear usÂ—even If we pressed the number keys. The signal strength, even in areas of complete coverage, were always poor... The phones oscillated between 3G and 4G trying to lock onto a signal. Even WiFi was a spotty adventure. Again, no matter how strong the network was, it was constantly a poor connection. The Â“Indirect SalesÂ” store that bore a Verizon name, did not offer a solution, other than to do a Â“Factory Reset.Â” We did this on three separate visits, within a week of getting the phones. At that same time, we were making out of town trips to find a house, purchase it, and move... We dealt with the aggravation for the past eleven months, as we went about our livesÂ—watching the problems with the phones grow. Applications open without prompting, applications close while we are using them, or just freeze up completely. Incoming phone calls will have the handsets ring, but the device will not permit you to answer it. The screen remains black and unresponsive, as it continues to ring. In short, if you are considering this phone for you or your family, be forewarned that it will disappoint you on epic levels. Truly a shame, as Motorola used to be a quality product.

If you're a big fatty lumpkin sitting at a desk in the A/C all day long you have that paper weight luxury but those of us out here busting our humps to earn our keep like the Droid Turbo 2 on the job site. I was installing a hardwood floor the other day and dropped my iPhone on the lady's tile, the screen shattered. Not with the Droid Turbo 2.... Just as Stan Grossman, he'll tell ya!
Now.... where is Pancake's house? I'm fuckin' hungry now ya know.
It is by far the absolute worst phone I have ever owned. It may be ok for personal use, but for business it is only useful as a pretty paperweight. I owned a Motorola phone back in the early 2000s. It was garbage, I would have thought that they would be better now. I will never purchase another Motorola device...ever.
Have mine two years now,after a charge port repair which was fixed a few states over its still the best phone ever made by Motorola...

While everyone around me is always scrambling to charge their phones, mine is always charges and even when I use it regularly, it lasts around 24 hours. Most of the things you described are settings you can change and it seems to me like you did not take the time to learn the phone. A 5 minute google search tells you what most people think one would want to change when they get the phone. The only issue I have had, was the butt dial, because I do not lock my phone. And if I leave it on the screen with the latest numbers dialed, of course it will dial someone when it is touched. Glad you got a new phone but it is 100% incorrect to state that this is a bad phone.Quite literally the best phone I have owned to date.
Allison, 17 Dec 2017Absolutely the worst smartphone ever. In less than a 2-year Verizon contract, I had THREE of ... moreThat is not common with the Droid 2 phone, so I feel your anger is very misplaced. I am going by what you wrote only, but I have a question, did you keep using the original cord with the 2nd 2 phones? Or did you use the new cords? Because, the behavior you are describing is very commonly a damaged cord that is shorting out the charging board components.
If that is not the case and you were using the new cord and plug every time, then sounds like they had a bad batch of phones. Cause honestly, the droid 2 is the best phone I have ever owned. It had one issue with me not getting my text messages from certain people but that was easily fixed with a phone reset (it is good to do a phone reset ever 6 months anyway, to keep the phone at peak performance.)
FKS, 05 Mar 2018Does it support and allow personal ring tone facility
yes it does.. you just need to do that by placing your music the ringtone folder in "files app"

Have it for 2 years now. I am looking to buy another one if i'll find a new one at a good price. Battery never lets you down with an average of 35-48 h giving it a good use.
Most powerful Speaker output on a phone I've ever seen. Sluggish performance. Can't handle additional applications being loaded without performance issues.

It happens from time to time because of hardware design. For some people it has become permanent. Mine hasn't, just have to be careful of pressuring the bottom right corner. This is also happening to some other phones. There maybe a few spots or some spot where the inner case or microchip is too close to the display causing it to make a or some green line. I've owned mine for 2 years now. Got it second week it came out from Verizon store. Speakers are really nice!! Other questions please keep replying or posting.
