Shitty phone. Freezes constantly causing me to reboot the thing. Bluetooth won't connect. Battery not as good as advertised. My last turbo ( the previous version) was great so I thought the turbo 2 would be even better. I was wrong. Can't wait to get rid of this dog. Goodbye Moto.
When I first got my phone I loved it the battery would lost forever and it would charge super fast. I had to send it back once because this green line appeared for no reason it would fade in and out till it just wouldn't go away. Now about a year into the phone the battery dies fast I even deleted a bunch of stuff I felt like I could do without finally found out it was my step counter that was draining the battery so got rid of it and the battery seems to last longer. But now the problem is I have to constantly try to angle my phone a certain way just to charge. I have to constantly try different chargers they'll work for a day or two but then they no longer work to charge the phone. it's frustrating when you pay over 500 for a phone just so a year later you can start having all kinds of problems with it. As soon as I pay it off I'm definitely going back to Samsung.
I have had to replace this device twice due to a malfunctioning charging port. Very disappointed. Store will not replace at point - you must have a new one shipped. THEN, they require a signature, so its a wait around all day issue,. Finally, you have to reinstall everything to put your phoneback to the way it was. This is terribly inconvenient - and Verizon doesn't feel it has to do anything other than replace the phone. My time is worth something, isn't it?
This is my first Motorola and Im really thankful with the experience, is the perfect phone because you can drop it and nothing is going to happened; the battery is really good and the camera mm not to much but is enough if you want a really good phone with excellent features.
Motorola lied about battery life. Can't keep phone charged long enough to do my job. Losing money. Will NEVER buy another Motorola phone EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!
Well I just got mine yesterday 13,06,17. I have used the droid turbo 1 for a year now and felt the right update is the Turbo 2 .
so far so good for now. am loving the experience, battery life is impressive. the built quality of the phone is top notch, far better then those overpriced (opps it has a nice logo)kinda phones. it's must get phone in 2017 though it came out in 2015. even if it cost $1000 get it.
I have always loved Droid, never had a major problem with any of the phones. This one has not been as impressive as the Turbo 1, definitely not worth the price. The screen is great, truly tough to the max, but after just 6 months one of my lower front facing speakers has blown as well as the telephone speaker. The battery doesn't hold charge well at all anymore, and the port has to be angled just right to charge it. The camera is just sad compared to other flagship phones of the time. It's still a very fast phone though. Unfortunately I don't think I'll be getting another Droid, at least not until they improve greatly.
When purchased in 2016 via Big Red, it was a capable phone. Back then it had a better than average camera capabilities and it's stock dialer and contacts apps are great. However, 11 months into ownership, I noticed that the device was running though battery at a faster pace than usual. As I use it extensively in the car, I purchased a higher amp car charger. At month 13, the device refused to charge up or hold a charge. Being an advanced Android user, I can attest to the device as not having been compromised by any type of malware or a battery-sucking app. Verizon Wireless store personnel were unhelpful in getting the issue resolved, as they were unfamiliar with troubleshooting this type of issue. Their in-store device health check software passed the device, including the battery. Putting the device on a quick charge connection resulted in the device not recognizing the charger type. There is no case on the phone so the difference between wired and wireless charging should not be affected at all.
I had to contact Lenovo support overseas to see if they could solve the issue. Level 2 support did not have any ideas beyond what had been tied thus far, including a factory reset. Since the phone was out of warranty, I was basically looking at spending what the phone is worth to swap it out with another Turbo 2. This reminded me of a time when my mother's Cadillac was three days out of its factory warranty, while she was on a road trip, the passanger window fell into the door gap and the antenna would not go up and down. In her case, the dealer fixed everything for free, as she had been a long time customer. What I received from Verizon and Lenovo for having been with them (formerly Motorola) for over 12 years was not being afforded the courtesy of a reach around. I have had nothing but Motorola phones since back to the first Razr. The fact that the factory reset performed by the store wasn't necessary and resulted in me losing some important files (I wasn't thinking at the time), and the fact that onsite support is pretty clueless, and that Lenovo doesn't stand by their products, is what prompted me to go to Pink with a Samsung S7 Edge. Clearly this phone is far superior to the Turbo 2, the plan I signed up for is a fraction of what I was getting at Red, and it's unlimited everything. I qualified for Business Class too, which means I now have a better service venue through which to get issues resolved than what the little people must endure. I've had other issues with Red in their stores before, as well as definitely apparent other outraged customers, whereas my dealings with Pink have been the complete opposite. I liked the experience so much that I combined our family's plans all under mine and it amounts to a fraction of the cost more than what it was worth me flying solo at Red. So, not only comparing the Turbo 2, but all other Droid branded phones under Red's roof, I feel everything should be compared to other carrier's offerings and plans as well. Considering what Red charges to finance the Turbo 2 against the S7E (a few bucks less per month), the cost of comparable plans and the customer service offered should all be worked into the final decision of whether to go with any Droid branded phone. You might want to take into account that the Droids can't be rooted, whereas the S series can, and not to mention, the Droid can't be taken to other carriers for a bring your own device switch (in the USA).

Andrew Castiglioni, 01 Jun 2017DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bought it, was good for month 1, month 2-4: the charger wouldn't work ... moreYou just had bad luck I found one on wed the side of the road a biker dropped this phone plays all my high end game lots of space n almost indestructible I'm very pleased...
DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bought it, was good for month 1, month 2-4: the charger wouldn't work properly to the point that no angle would give it a charge, month 5: started using a wireless charger that I WAS FORCED TO BUY (THEY PROBABLY KNEW THE PORT WOULD SNAP IN HALF!), month 6-present: phone battery lasts less and less as the wireless charger over heats the battery more and more. I am not a fan of Apple, but this experience makes me want to throw my phone out the window, smash it, and buy a cheap iPhone 4 or 6. My phone carrier salesperson *coughverizoncough* even said this would last a long time even if I was on it constantly...
Sunny, 23 May 2017Go for it, using it since a year, its one of the best phone, excellent backup!Hell no
This phone has serious issues. bought 2, one for business and one for personal. personal has issues with phone, clearly hardware, hundreds of fine lines and distortion across the screen and pictures on a random basis. Business one will not power off, cannot turn on wifi, one screen says airplane mode is on when it's off. Will NOT buy another of these.
i am going to buy droid turbo 2 tomorrow.tell me wether I upgrade the device or not
