The Turbo2 is a great phone. Don't be misled by the Iphone hype. Shatterproof screen is a big plus for any smartphone user, and a 21mp camera is great to accompany an 8 core processor!
Anonymous , 28 May 2016On my 3rd phone in less than 6 months. It's a piece of junk. All 3 have had issues chargin... moreDoes your phone just randomly shut off and oblyturn onwhen it's in the charger.
And the battery said it's turbo charging and when you disconnect it you can actually see the battery dropping rapidly
After a couple of months of normal use my DT2 wouldn't complete startup. After sending it back to Motorola they declared that there was water damage and that it voided the warranty. The device was not exposed to any kind of unusual moisture and the liquid indicator inside the sim tray does not appear triggered. The back of the device is glued on and there is no way for a regular user to be able to remove and replace the back of the device
Additionally there is no way to flash the device firmware to try to resolve the issue.
Jen, 30 May 2016Works great but when send text messages in group it says only delivered to someDid you have an iPhone before?
I personally own this phone and love it. The Specs above are incorrect based on Motorola's listed specs for the expandable memory. According to Motorola this phone can hold up to a 2TB card. I have a 256GB one in mine. Love this phone. That's a big deal for me since I was an iPhone user before.
best phone ever. dropped it about 200 times now (every time i exit a car, i have a bad habit of putting it on my lap and my stoned self forgets, 200 is a low estimate. on every surface, mostly concrete). i even took a spill on my longboard and the phone is literally twisted a few degrees. works as flawlessly and as fast as it did on day 1. battery is ridiculous.. 0-100% in about 45 minutes every time. lasts me 2-3 days depending on use. im on instagram mostly. best phone ever.

On my 3rd phone in less than 6 months. It's a piece of junk. All 3 have had issues charging and the battery doesn't last as long as they claim. Don't waste you money!! Verizon told me that Motorola finally acknowledged there is a problem with the phone but they can't replicate the charging problem in house.
Great phone have a problem. I've had it for 4 months. Some people are saying it doesn't work well or the battery sucks, but my battery last 6-8 hours of hard use so I don't know what they are talking about. They also saying the screen scratches but mines hasn't scratched yet and it got thrown across a room and slid on the hard floor with no scratches so once again I believe this is not true.
Garbage garbage garbage. On 3rd one in five months. Had reboot problem 5 mins after leaving store. 2nd one screen would lock up. Current one is no better, drops calls no one can hear you. Have to talk on speaker all the time. Better off getting two tin cans and string.
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2016would you recomend itThe biggest piece of shit you could possibly buy ! It will Call people by itself - on my 3rd phone in 4 months if you enjoy non stop problems and a company who could care less (Verizon) once they get your money this is the phone for you
If you have any Brains at all don't even consider this piece of junk.Do yourself a favor find a different carrier Verizon couldn't care less about you or your problems and do NOT buy this Shit phone
People can't understand you,battery good for 5-6 hrs if you don't use it ! Worst phone I ever owned - only 4 months old had problems from day 1. Verizon has you locked into this Shit phone for 2 years ! I plan on switching Carrier and getting a phone that works and a company who cares. I will not honor their contract - they don't ! Verizon take me to court I'm not paying anymore !
This phone is complete garbage. The touch screen is often unresponsive, there is something wrong with the transmitter as people have trouble understanding you when you talk, the shatter proof glass is nothing special, and the last system update has rendered my blue tooth almost completely useless. Also the autocorrect is really dumb. Verizon has been no help on these issues. Seems being a customer for a decade doesn't count for much with Verizon.
I've been a Verizon customer for around 10 years. This stupid phone got me to switch to AT+T. Battery sucks and the "Turbo charger" doesn't work at all. Battery life is 8 hours max if you don't actually use the phone for anything. If you do use it, better have a charger with you at all times. The only kind that actually charges it is the pad type. Try to plug it in and it says "slow charging, use the charger that came with your phone". What a crock.
Games are slow and chunky and everyone I talk to says they can't hear me. I hate this stupid phone so much. Can't wait till my new phone from AT+T arrives.
One of the best phones out there. Snappy, gorgeous design, plus extended storage via micro SD card. Great screen and great camera
I've had the phone for a few months now and like it for the most part. My only complaint is the pinky fatigue but I have small hands and always used a slide-out qwerty style phone before so I'm not used to one-handed operation. Haven't had any issues with the battery life. I'm not a constant heavy user but I do play youtube on every car drive and browse online quite a lot. With that type of usage, I normally get to 2 days on a single charge. I've had a glass SP on it the whole time so I have no complaints about the plastic screen being easily scratchable. Honestly, the people complaining about this didn't do their research well enough because that's the first thing I noted when checking out reviews. I haven't had any issues since the 6.0 updates. I got the leather back one because it was available and it feels great in my hands. Doesn't slip around easily either but I'd imagine the rubber is superior. I don't use advanced calling, at least to my knowledge, and my calls sound great. Better than any previous cell phone I've had by a long shot actually. This is my 3rd droid (Droid, Droid 4, Turbo 2) and here's to hoping this lasts me as long as my last one.
Don't buy this phone if you expect decent battery life. It is no better than my 3 year old Nexus. And dimensions odd, too wide to hold comfortably and edges feel sharp. Have had for 5 months and massively disappointed. Wasted alot of money.
This is probably one of the WORST purchases of my entire life. The phone can't be taken apart so I can't even tweek it, but it has been having a charging problem for at least a month now. The guy at Verizon kept telling me to just to factory reset it and charge my phone while it is off. As nice as that sounds if I am paying $600.00 for a stupid phone then I want it to work properly. This phone is a joke I recommend everyone purchase the LG S7, at least if the battery is trash you can replace it.
zMan, 09 May 2016This phone is a massive disappointment. Do not be swayed by a shatter proof screen. If you dro... moreAwesome phone much better than the galaxys, was a big fan of samsung until motorola brought this phone out. I've dropped it many times on wood and concrete surfaces and still works great with no issues. Just bought wife one plus an extra one to toy with and she loves it as well.
Excellent phone (despite a surprising number of complaints I see here!). We picked up 3 via Verizon and the MotoMaker website in mid-November (2015 of course), and have used them heavily since then. I use mine for personal and work (management consultant / "road warrior"), my wife uses hers for personal calls, games, FB, etc., and my 17 year old daughter uses hers the way most teens use smartphones these days. We ALL have had great experience with the phones. All are upgraded to Marshmallow.
Battery life has been generally excellent. I generally get 4.5 hours screen-on-time and have at least 30% battery left after a LONG day of use (6:30am till close to midnight). Phone handles extremely well -- smooth, no lag or hesitation. Virtually no errors or hiccups.
Wife and daughter have the 32gb version with 35gb SD cards added. I have the 64gb version and an additional 64gb card (going to replace, probably, with 128gb). Great to be able to use all this storage for pictures, PowerPoint presentations, and especially to cache / download thousands of tunes from Google Play Music for offline listening (I'm on a plane quite often -- this with headphones is spectacular).
We added the 0.2mm flexible hardened glass screen protector from Verizon on all 3. This keeps the plastic screen from scratching -- and worst case, the glass can be replaced for $24. But all 3 still look like new after 6 months of heavy use, and we know the actual phone screen isn't about to break.
Sound quality is good. Bluetooth flawless. WiFi has been excellent. The very thin layer of Moto actions and the like are really nice -- great to open the camera with a twist of the wrist, turn on the flashlight with a "chopping" motion, and wake up the phone with my own phrase. All told -- best phone I've owned in 24 years of using cellphones.
