I had a Moto Droid previously and loved it until it started having problems with charging (shutting down and on/off repeatedly). I had it a little over 2 years with no problems at all.
So, I got this thinking it would be as good. I returned this phone in first week. Too often (almost always) while on it, people could not hear me talking. I think we narrowed it down to a problem with the background noise cancellation. If there is background noise (like opening a car door) while I am talking, the listener can't hear me. We tested it by me counting to 10 while I tapped a coffee cup on the counter. Listener missed everything I said while I tapped.
I am in ambient noise all the time, so this just won't do.
Looking for an alternative.
Hazysho, 16 Oct 2016Guys I need advice. Which phone should I go for? Nexus 6 or Turbo 2?It's not what you would really want
If your picking nexus 6 against Droid turbo 2 then pick nexus 6.
On the droid turbo 2, The famous green line will pop up on the plastic screen when dropped and they won't do anything about it with warranty
All tho you think it's shatterproof, I could make a shatterproof screen myself.
Best choice is nexus 6 mate

Just want to make everyone aware that just because Motorola says your shatterproof screen is under warranty do not believe them it is only under warranty until something happens. They do not stand behind there warranty. When you call to explain what happens they immediately say "oh that isn't covered". I really did love my Droid Turbo 2 until I dropped it after just 5 months & now have a green line up the middle. I will never trust Motorola again I thought they would have a good phone but guess I was wrong. A phone should last longer than 5 months. Hope this helps the next sucker that is thinking a
Droid would be good.....................
Go for Nexus 6 .. Purely Android Phone. Its a Very Smooth phone with low price..
Here in Brazil as Moto X Force this is the best of motorola, I change my Moto Maxx for this one, and my past phone are a LG G2...
Very smooth, fast an durable. battery is bellow than my older moto maxx, but still much better than LG, Samsung an apple phones... I didn't like the visual and style, the Nylon back cover is hard to clean but offer a good grip...
In my point of view, I think that X Force phone is made for who like to run, bike, trek, rally and all off must action, water, dust... The shock resitent scren, huge display, watter protection with a true compass is perfect for adventure sports and uses without loss camera quality and internal memory... a samsung S series or Apple its too much fragile to do this, and LG and Sony is for office and light hands... "glass cover" .. you need a velvet glove to use...thats not my case! My older S4 and LG G2 are pretty good but never will survive a week in a true adventure, to surf, or make bike tracking, camping... obviusly I'm talking about a travel with your father in a motorhome ... I see some of my friends with apple phones and sony that live your phones in home to do this... this one is made for office use without any action... now I'm looking for cartterpillar or Z Force... You could think that "weakness" is proposital!!!
It is available in the UK, just called x force. But, don't buy it. worst phone I have ever had. Battery life is rubbish.
A step back from the Droid Turbo 1. Although not a total disaster, the Droid Turbo 2 is a mediocre phone at best. The battery life is noticeable worse than original Droid Turbo 1. I've owned almost all the Verizon Droid phones since the Droid Razr, including both Maxx phones and Droid Turbo 1. And I must say that then battery life is not what you would expect from a phone with 3700 mAh battery. The other Maxx and Turbo phones had significantly better on screen time. There is something inefficient with the way this phone uses battery.
The I thee problem I have is the weak and slow WiFi radio. It eventually slows to a crawl with download speeds like 0.5 mbps. I'll reboot the phone and get normal 25 mbps WiFi download speeds, only to revert back to a crawl by next day.
The third problem of have is the lag when switching apps, switching web tabs, or even typing in the virtual keyboard. I don't do memory intensive things on this phone like gaming, but the lag is quite noticeable. Again, the previous Droid Turbo 1 had much smoother performance.
Can't wait to replace this phone. Overall a 3 out of 5 rating.
Does anyone have the same problem when I play certain games or at certain times it loses internet connection all the time used to think it was my house but now happens all over . When I play in group setting I am only one that loses connection so pretty sure it is not modem or router ??? Any help
This phone is the absolute worst phone I have EVER had. Thank god for manufacturing warranty or I would have been out of a phone just 2 short months after getting it. I am about to send my SIXTH phone back to Motorola. That means I have had 5 replacements that all quit working within just a few short months & about to get my 7th phone..That is just unacceptable.. I am convinced this is because Lenova bought Motorola, and they are obviously a rip off! I BEG YOU, DON'T BUY THIS PHONE!!!! This phone has been the biggest pain of my life the last year. I am upgrading as soon as I can.
My wife and I both got this phone when it first arrived. Within a month my touchscreen quit responding and it took them two months to replace my phone. In May, my wife's phone quit charging and had to get a replacement. A month ago my phone quit charging I had to get a replacement. It's sad to see a cheap company like Lenovo buy Motorola which used to be a great brand. It's the beginning of the end for Motorola.
keyboard sucks! without doing anything, my keyboard input method changed to voice. when I tried to disable voice input, I had the choice of Chinese pinyin or voice.....no American letters.....this is fully shit!!!
I have had my Droid Turbo 2 for about a year now. The 48 hour battery life it claims is definitely false I personally pretty much use this as a phone I occasionally play a game I don't use Facebook or any other social media I rarely stream music and my phone consistently dies every night. The battery life of this phone is about 7 to 12 hours
YES. Is there a solution? The speaker phone does not work and every complains they cannot hear me.
Tara, 17 Sep 2016Has anyone had an issue while your talking on it people complaining about u going in and out o... moreYes!! This happens ask the time. My phone had to be in a specific position for the other person to hear me clearly. It's so annoying!!
Has anyone had an issue while your talking on it people complaining about u going in and out one minute they can here me and the next they cant
Cynthia, 31 Jul 2016I just bought this phone Saturday evening. I've been using Samsung Galaxy phones for several y... moreHey Cynthia. If you swipe to the right while on the camera options will pop up so you can turn the flash off. You can also go to settings if you want to go to airplane mode. It takes some getting use to, but usually there's a place for everything. You can also tap by your face and change the brightness level.
