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.

Like someone else mentioned, approaching the 2 year mark, it's a disaster. The 2 year mark is April, it'll never make it. Going to switch to iPhone, this is my last Droid.

At the 1.6 mark it became very glitchy, slow, turning off for no apparent reason. It freezes etc, etc. I've always liked the droids. It is durable I will give them that. Personally I think it's by design that approximately at the 2 year mark they stop working so we'll. After all it's about paid off and you qualify for an upgrade (Verizon) hmmmm can't be a coincidence.
I don't know why people are discrediting this fabulous smart phone. It's one of a kind. Its simply amazing. Quality camera, strong battery, ....you name it.Please start praising Motorola for a good job done
samsung troll ^^^, 18 Dec 2017It sounds like a bunch of mularkey . A) You don't know how to spell "malarkey," and B) I don't give a rat's ass what you think. About anything. Thanks for participating.
I don't know what problems people are talking about but its other than yellowish white color there is not a single issue i had in last 2 years. And every phone slows down with time, even iphones do so its not an issue. Manufacturers code there software i a way that slows down device with time or something like that.
Absolutely the worst smartphone ever. In less than a 2-year Verizon contract, I had THREE of these, and they all failed. I should say I'm not hard on my phones, and I have never had problems like this before. I just loved the customizable colors and other options; what a mistake. Phone #1: stopped charging at 10 months. Just wouldn't recognize the charger, at all, despite being immaculately clean and multiple chargers/cords tested. Still under warranty, so Verizon replaced it. Imagine my frustration when Phone #2 did the EXACT SAME THING at only 4 months in! This time, I called Motorola and they replaced it. Phone #3: By 8 months in, the battery drain was so rapid I couldn't go anywhere without a charger. I had the battery replaced for $60. At 9 months, with a new battery, it spontaneously shut off all the time; usually re-starting involved multiple, multiple attempts. I essentially couldn't use the phone unless it was charging, and that was getting fritzy. This phone honestly made me miss having a landline. I will never, ever even consider purchasing a Motorola/Lenovo product again; frankly I wouldn't take one if you paid me. Forewarned is fairwarned; tell anyone you know to stay the hell away from Motorola.
On a happier note, the Samsung Galaxy 8 I replaced my Turd Turbo 2 with is an absolute masterpiece of both style and function. Samsung seems to be easily setting the industry standard for innovation, while Motorola is providing consumers with a phone I wouldn't wipe my ass with.
Got mine first week of release in Nov. 2015 release. Speakers are the best smarthphone speakers I ever had. Phone itself is still quite fast even though slowing down with each android os upgrade. 21 MP Camera is good but doesn't adjust well by itself when in bright or dark areas, gotta do it manually or with flash on.
I also have the green line thing, mines small like 1 mm wide and have had it happening over a year now. I believe it is a bad hardware design issue, across many other phones too. Something to do with the chip underneath screen and being to close to the screen.
Overall, it is still a good phone. Just not good if your still paying something close to 700 usd for a 2 year old design and hardware.
Got this phone new. Was only at Verizon or 3 months so i wouldn't lose the promo price. Went to straight talk after. At first the phone was excellent. Very long battery life with heavy use. Camera is ok. Don't expect galaxy/iphone level. After about 1.5 years I started to have issues...pretty much after update to 6.0 or 7.0 it became very slow and glitchy. Got fed up after reading suggestions like clear cache and what not but didn't work and I eventually wiped the phone which helped for the most part. Fast charge stopped working. Didn't buy another charger to see if that was the reason. Phone becomes very laggy when charging. Randomly turns off when battery is at 20% or less. Still will last me 12-15 hours of good use. Talking is still clear and have no problems with people hearing me. Never used a case, just screen protector. The bezel has marks and wear but screen is still unscathed. Want to upgrade phones but at same time this phone still does what I use it for. Was thinking s8 since it is literally same size as this phone despite a bigger screen. Not sure if s7 is much of an upgrade.
owais khan, 23 Aug 2017Which is better droid turbo 1 ya turbo 2
I think droid turbo 1 is better than droid turbo 2
... moreBetween the turbo 2 and the turbo 1...
Performance wise, with Antutu 3d benchmarking, my turbo 1's (all 3) score right at about 90, 000, sometimes as low as 88.500. My turbo 2 scores at about 83, 000 to 84,000 with all verizon bloat apps disabled (at least the ones they let you disable)
With Passmark performance test, my turbo 2 scores at about 8800 to 8900, same conditions with bloat apps disabled. My turbo 1's score from 6300 to 7200.
the turbo 2 is of course bootloader locked, and unrootable. Verizon will always have control of your phone, even if it is carrier unlocked and you use a different carrier (which i do- cricket). The turbo 1's can be bootloader unlocked, thanks to the efforts of some very bright minds at the xda development community, for 25 bucks. Totally worth it. All my turbo 1's are bootloader unlocked and as a result I run the latest android software... these phones are good enough that they are still being maintained and actively developed by the community. I can install any operating system I want, at any performance/battery life compromise ratio I want. I have kicked verizon off of my phones forever- and I am in complete control of the phones that I bought with my money. The turbo 1's I mean.
Speaking of battery, 3900 mA for the turbo 1 and 3760, or sometimes 3560 for the turbo 2. Difference of about half a day, for me.
The turbo 2 has an sd card slot, and a screen that won't shatter on a drop, typically (though the screen display suffers a bit because its outer layer is plastic... scratches). These are the 2 advantages over the turbo 1. In all other possible ways, including a superior design regards longevity of use, the turbo 1 wins. This was the last phone built by motorola while they were owned by google, before lenovo took control. The turbo 1 is a masterpiece, the turbo 2 is a potential great, but ultimately a big disappointment due mostly to the locked bootloader. Thus, the development community has no opportunity to correct mistakes built into the phones programming. Too bad, a lot of potential wasted.
That is all, and good day to you
The screen is yellow-ish (thanks to early shatterproof technology), if you already dissapointed having an amoled phone because of the white color isnt as great as ips one, then this damn phone isnt for you. I actually love amoled screen but, this phone's screen is not really my type. after a year, while i am open facebook from my dt2, the screen suddenly went off, after it went on again, there is weird green line occupied at 10 percent of my dt 2's screen, moreover the screen goes on and off randomly that make my phone literally unusable (i never dropped it nor drown it, its just completely random). I love motorola, i love amoled, but i fucking hate this fucking piece of shit product. Even my 2013 moto x still works better while this goddamn 2015 phone has already broken like a cheap shit.
This is the worst piece of technology I've ever owned. The camera spontaneously takes 100 pictures if you touch the side of the phone. The screen darkens by itself. The volume adjusts by itself. Active links do not display in e-mails or apps. Battery life is terrible. This phone is a curse. No one can hear me on calls. I can't hear anyone on calls because of feedback. Avoid this phone at all costs. I am trading it and taking a 300 dollar loss because it is unusable for more reasons than I have detailed.
It is only phone I ever had where phone contacts disappeared over time. I called phone carrier. Other people complained about that same issue. Also I could never get my contacts to backup in over a year.
I have had a Motorola Droid turbo 2 for about two years. Because it is on a plan that purchases the phone throughout the plan. In my experience with this phone, it is the worst phone availability out there! After a year the phones house charger,(Verizon employee said to use only that charger on the phone), went to shit and quit charging. The phone itself is crap, calling people without dialing or butt dialing accidently. It doesn't shut itself off after hanging up, hence people on. The other end can still hear you, it turns it's sound down by itself, so you miss important calls, it turns the flashlight on without you knowing it and it's battery is the worst. I mean it drains within a couple hours with no apps open. It loses your conversation after 4 minutes. I truely tell you my husband bought me this phone no more than two years ago, because he is still paying for it, and it's the biggest piece of shit I have every owned.!!!!! I have stayed with it this long because it was a gift from my husband that he was very proud to give me. There is plenty wrong with this phone but I think you got the just of it. Unless you got a grand to waste , stay away from this phone. BTW, if they are talking you into financing a bundle like they did my happy-go-lucky husband, run run fast. The shit is just that ,shit. You've been warned, once ya learn ,twice ya burn.
Worst phone ever!!! My first one the charge port quit working. My second one dies sometimes at 50% sometimes at 30%. And god forbid I go anywhere without my cord because the battery dies so fast!!! If I'm even just texting on it it's gone. Can't believe I payed this much money for such a piece of crap!!
