It is just a different name since the US market got used to Motorola Droid. Even the newest Moto Z will be branded as Moto Z Droid. It might not work in the UK, but I am not sure. It should, though. Search for the bands it supports, and ask you carrier which bands he supports.
I purchased a turbo 2 in December due to the salesman assuring me as he punted the phone across the room it would not break. In March I returned to Verizon with a green line horizontally down the front of the phone. After many excuses I was told to take my insured phone to an "I fix" kiosk at the mall.. due to wear and tear....as it would be cheaper to fix the screen. In June I returned yet again because the green line was getting wider and was told it would cost $300 to repair the phone. It is now July and the green line is getting worse. I have tried talking to Verizon but I am told Motorola is well aware of this issue but I have to pay to have it fixed. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE! IT IS A SCAM! I have been given many excuses but the fact that they say it can't be damaged is a lie. They just want your money and do not back their product up. I just want the phone repaired I don't even need a new one its only 7months old in a two year plan however they are not interested in keeping a customer but making a buck. I will NEVER buy another Motorola product again. Use this phone as what it is intended for.. a paperweight.

That one probably works over in the UK and should be available from online retailers. Good Luck!
[deleted post]First of all... it does not have a left speaker. Only one on the opening of course on the bottom right. Secondly, it's probably a faulty charger or you already broke it on your own. It's not the smartphones fault your not a smart person. Learn how to use it first before you ruin another smartphone. Enough of your nonsense. SMH...

Lovely Phone... Bought it a week ago and its so elegant looking with the latest high-end specs...
Everyone praises the phone when its in your hands
My Droid turbo 2 was the worst phone I've ever had. I had to lift up on the charger at all times for it to charge. my battery lasted an average of 4 hours with little use. I haven't even owned it for four months and my left speaker broke and stopped working and my entire screen broke. I was just sitting on the couch and it turned black and wouldn't show anything. my mom, who has the same phone, also is experiencing the same charge and battery problem I am. I most certainly am not impressed
LOVE LOVE LOVE my Droid Turbo 2! Initially chose this phone for the 21mpx and 4x zoom camera. Takes great photos, with the 4x zoom, I can photo the smallest items with great detail, or zoom for distance shots, and love the touch anywhere on the screen to take a photo-really helps with one-handed quick shots, without having to find the darn camera button. Lots of editing options too.
As for set up and operation, I was able to set it up without having to look at the manual, and it's so easy to use, (and find things), that even my non-techie spouse figured it out. which may not be a good thing, because now he uses my Droid Turbo 2 more than his own, (and then I have to wait my turn), so I guess I need to get him his own. :-)
Some people may not like the large size (& weight) of the phone itself, but I love it! It provides a larger screen area, (to read emails and... play games, and by changing the font size to huge, it is so much easier to read without having to put on my glasses. Speaker sound is good, (even my hard-of-hearing mother can hear when it’s on speakerphone).
As for speed, to me anyway, it feels blazing fast. This phone is a Verizon exclusive, so you have to pay a little more per month, for the service, but so worth it. Verizon really does have a large network and fast 4G. I opted for only the 2G of Data since I use this a lot on available wifi’s, but you can still scroll thru emails to see if anything is super urgent, then turn on the 4G when you need it, and quickly turn it off when you don’t.
Hooked it up to my computer with a USB and easily backed up all my files, photos, everything to my desktop computer, (just in case), and between google cloud and Verizon cloud we have lots of storage space. (for all those videos and photos)
Added an SD card to transfer the gazzillion photos I've been taking - and in the slide out camera settings, you can set the photos to save directly to the SD card or the phone (which saves phone storage space for other things like ...games).
AND lets not forget the shatterproof screen! It's been dropped a couple times already (once on the concrete driveway!!), and it's all good! We did spend the extra couple of bucks to get some peel and stick screen protectors, (from Verizon, not the cheap-er knock-offs) to protect from scratches, and the occasional splash of water - or coffee... so far, the first one has lasted over 8 months, and still does not need replacing, (and you don’t wanna know what the screen has been subjected to).
This phone is my workhorse. The battery life is better than any I’ve had before ... we use this phone - a Lot. from around 6 am to 4 pm with a full schedule of phone calls, checking emails, facebook, twitter, etc... and playing a game or two here and there, but even with continuous use, by 4:00 the battery rarely falls below 50%, by 7 or 8pm it might drop to 40 or as low as 20% .. but after a 20 min charge, its good to go again. If we don't play games, and only make calls and check emails (every 30 min or so), it can last a good 24 hours, and even then, the lowest it went down was around 10%.
I have 10 different email accounts (for different purposes), and can easily access them all from one simple location, (saves me about 2-3 hrs a day checking emails) with the downloaded “one note”, I can type quick reminders and notes to myself on the road, and when I get on my desktop, everything is right there!
If you are having problems with your phone, it might be that you just got a bad one, (it happens).
Overall this is the absolute best phone I’ve ever had. If I could afford it, I would buy one for every one of my friends and family. Seriously, I never thought I would be so excited about a phone, but I truly love this phone and would very highly without a doubt absolutely recommend it!
Hi, I really want this phone but it's not directly available in the UK, so I'm a little concerned about how it will perform. Has anyone else brought one over from abroad & can vouch for it's performance on our infrastructure here?
DaPhoneGuy, 17 Dec 2015Talkback mode is a serious pain. It's designed for the vision impaired and completely changes ... moreThank you so much!! That back talk was driving me nuts and there was nothing I could have done. More over, the Verizon wizards did not know either. Who could have guessed to pull down the screen with the whole palm? Is it anywhere in there instructions?
One more thing: Isn't that stupid to not have Russian language on the list of available languages when there are so many totally unknown ones? 200 million people in the world still speak Russian. I was offered by Verizon to return the Turbo 2. Gladly one of their guys was smart enough to solve the problem in 5 minutes.
Brian, 26 Jun 2016Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I HATE this phone. It requires a minimum of 3 full charges... moreSomething wrong with your phone brother. Take that to the service center or check the battery usage. If it's all screen usage there then return the device. Because it is a battery problem. If android system is using that much then it's time to reinstall or update your phone by pc. Check again... I can guarantee you there is nothing wrong with turbo 2.
These phones are horrible. My first wouldn't take a charge, so I was sent a second one. The second won't work with the charger that came with the phone, but the charger works with other phones. The battery life is horrid. I switched From a RAZR Maxx which was the best phone I've owned. Wish I still had it.
Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I HATE this phone. It requires a minimum of 3 full charges per day. A full charge lasts me about 4 hours with only minimal use, and I don't use the phone that much. Switching from an iPhone to this was the worst mistake I could have made.
Love the phone had trouble with it at all. Got it in November works great
AnonD-549844, 17 Jun 2016The phone really have infrared port? Please somebody tell me!It is written in the specs
infrared port Yes
Ang, 11 Jun 2016Does your phone just randomly shut off and oblyturn onwhen it's in the charger.
And the bat... more Depends on how you use it of course. First of all, you gotta disable/uninstall all the apps and bloatware you don't need, I disabled about 20 - 25 x.x, got mine from Verizon.
If your just a daily user, the phone for sure goes 2 days or uses around 40% battery on a daily use like 1-2 hours of browsing with wifi. The phone does tend to get warm feeling like something 75 - 80 F in your hard after over 30 min of video or touching, clicking, or bright screen backlighting from usage or could be because I put a plastic shock absorb cover around it.
If you browse a lot, then yeah it will come down to 1 day's lasting. Same for music, all-day music would make the phone last just about a whole day. If you don't usually use your phone during the day that much except for talk and text it will last 5-7 days with around 12% usage each day. I used to be able to get up to 9 day battery lasting with barely using the phone, it seems to have dropped a bit after Marshmallow update or maybe its because battery slowly dieing after 7 month use already. I got mine early November last year.
Overall I really like it, but its my first high-end smartphone. My previous or first smartphone I ever had was the Moto X (2013).
I've had this phone since mothers day, it works wonders, my previous phone was the ultra and omg the amount of bad luck I had with that phone was ridiculous, but this phone I've dropped it a few times and only a few dings in the corners. Very impressed with storage, battery and turbo charge, love this phone!!
