88888, 13 Mar 2017Omg!! Thanks everyone for the reviews! I thought I was alone with having the worst nightmare w... moreSince I know that the vast majority of people only post to complain, I thought Id put in a positive review. I'm happy with my DT2. This is actually my second one. Yeah, the first one got really buggy, but only AFTER i repeatedly beat the crap out of it (on accident, but still)! I wonder if that's going on with others? I'm reasonable enough to know that if a phone gets dropped as much as my last one did (with no case), it's going to have issues.
I did a design refresh (something I was grateful that motorola let me do), and now have a new DT2 (in a case), several months in, working great.
I think of it as a Volvo: not very sexy, but powerful, durable, and super functional. I'm not really sure when I'll bother upgrading next. My phone just works.

Verizon agreed to give me an upgrade but Motorola sent same POC. When I spoke with Motorola, then were rude and pretty much said too bad! Never Motorola again!
Skip this phone. It's one of the biggest disappointments I've ever used for a phone. The predecessor, Droid Turbo 1, is actually superior in every way to this. I've owned most of the the Droid Razr/Maxx/Turbo phones since 2011, and this is the "turd in the punch bowl". Battery life is mediocre despite a very large battery. Performance is choppy and sometimes the phone will freeze for 5 or 6 seconds and then catch up. The stock keyboard will temporarily freeze and catch up when typing. Switching between apps would be slow at times. On occasion, I would lose WiFi and have to reboot the phone to get a connection. I didn't even play games or install any resource-intense apps on this. I used it to browse web sites, Youtube, listen to music, text. Basic stuff that was easily handled by phones from years ago, yet this thing had problems. I finally put it out of my misery yesterday and got a replacement phone. I may be done with Motorola for the foreseeable future.
I have had droids going back to the X. When new, the Turbo 2 was a super phone. After 18 months, not so much. Battery goes dead even in airplane mode. Apps constantly freeze. USB port is shot and will not communicate with a PC. Touch screen can take a minute to respond. I am just so sick. I have a headache!

It would be 100% charged and id go to open anything and it would shut off. Id have to connect charger to have it turn back on, eventually that stopped working to the point of not even turning on.. verizons shitty service wouldnt let me get a refurb and motorola said I had to speak to verizon. So all in all ive been paying for a phone the last 6 months that doesnt even work
My Droid Turbo 2 is the worst phone I've ever had. I have been a loyal Droid user but no more. This phone is supposed to have great battery life but it only lasts about a half day and I'm on my 2nd one as they had to replace my first. I have a green line going down the side of the screen that I got for no reason. The charging port breaks easily and my phone freezes up frequently. This is a pretty junk phone and probably the worst smartphone I've ever had. As soon as my contract is up I'm going to go with the Pixel or possibly an iPhone. The Droid Turbo was a much much better phone than this. This phone is pathetic.
aj--Update:, 20 Mar 2017Well the thought of mine being the only one to keep working is slowing slipping away. My keyb... moreMy Droid turbo 2 constantly turns off on its own and needs to be plugged in to turn back on and sometimes to just turn back off again within seconds.. took it to Verizon and it died at least 10 times in the first two minutes, right in front of the rep.. he told me there's nothing I can do but keep getting refurbished replacements until I get a good one..
I think with as many issues as this phone has, someone needs to take legal action.. this is no cheap phone and trading brand new phones for refurbs is bull..
I bought it brand new and when I sent my old one in it had the issue with the charging port not charging.. now I'm stuck with a phone that constantly dies.. I have to carry a battery pack around just in case I need to make a call and it dies.. .. $800+ for a POS phone that isn't properly refurbed and as many issues as this has.. I don't think we should have to pay for the service since I really spent the last 9 months just trying to keep this phone on...
Well the thought of mine being the only one to keep working is slowing slipping away. My keyboard hardly works anymore. It glitches so bad that I can get 10 letters typed in before its gone and another 1 minute of trying to get it back. Ugh! I can't answer this phone anymore, my apps are always shutting on me for no reason and even to open them is a chore. My phone will charge up to 100% then it dies so fast. I can take if off the charger and let it set for 20 minutes and will look at it and its already down to 84%. How when I didn't even do anything with it?? I hate this phone.
My husbands phone is another story. After my first post, he's had two more replacements. Too glitchly. So the phone company finally sent him a different brand. Way better. My daughters phone glitches so bad too but atleast she can use it more then I can. I can see needing to get her another one in the near future. I'm about ready to go online and just order a different phone and give these back!
If you like having a working phone...do not go with this one.
I would not buy the Droid Turbo 2. Myself, my daughter, my husband and two close friends have this phone. Out of all 5 mine is the only one that hasn't been replaced. My husbands has been replaced twice and so has my daughters. All for the same issue. The charging port stops working. I like the phone but honestly if I would have known this issue I would have went with something else.

Smart Phones are for people smart enough to use them, if you put them in the hands of a child... well you get this!!
Motorola keep doin what you do!!
Murex, 15 Mar 2017It's a great phone. I don't have any problem with battery, screen ....etc. Minded.How many millions of copies being made?A few must die...Remember what happened to Note 7...1000 euros phone...Withdrawn from sale after a few months.
Motorola Droid Turbo II is the best phone that Motorola has ever done...and all haters can kiss my M logo!
88888, 13 Mar 2017Omg!! Thanks everyone for the reviews! I thought I was alone with having the worst nightmare w... moreI will so agree with you. I can't get a new one for another year and this one won't charge past 56%. It also dies at 30%. I have one app on there I will use besides messaging and that's it. What a junk phone! It also has a red or even green line going through the side. It will not charge with a regular charger. I use a charging pad but even that won't work. What a joke!!!!

It's a great phone. I don't have any problem with battery, screen ....etc.
Omg!! Thanks everyone for the reviews! I thought I was alone with having the worst nightmare with the Droid Turbo 2!!! I will never let a Verizon store salesperson push a phone on me!! I keep thinking why did I ever leave the iPhone. My last one was a 6! I'm on my fourth Turbo 2 in 16 months due to the battery!! I have had to replace all the charging cables which Verizon salesperson was the best one for the phone. A month later I am now using wireless chargers!! I gave up playing Pokémon Go due to the fact I can't rely on the battery and the battery never lasted 48 hours even new!! Replacement phone is only a month old and already numerous problems! Stuck in safe mode! Videos popping on while not even being touched! Wow, the sound issue has hit too! I thought it was my hearing!! I will never buy a Motorola product again in my life!!
I have been a loyal Motorola user for at least the last 10 years. One of my favorite phones was my pink Razr flip phone which after all these years I kept as a keepsake. I have upgraded every 2 years to the newest Motorola Razr and now the Turbo ever since. In fact, before moving to the first Turbo, I upgraded to an iPhone, only to return it to the store within a few days to go back to Motorola.
By far, without a doubt, the Droid Turbo 2 is the WORST phone I've ever owned. I purchased 2 of these phones on 12/31/15. Within the first few months Verizon had to warranty both phones because of hardware issues. Everyone knows how annoying and time consuming it is to change phones, especially after just a few months. Needless to say, after getting the new phone I still had issues and ended up doing a factory reset to fix issues within another few months. Total disaster!
It is nearly impossible to speak with the other person on my account because it is impossible to hear him except when he has the phone on speaker. Keep in mind this is not the original device we got on 12/31/15, but this is the same issue we had with the first phone.
Every update has brought about new problems such as apps closing unexpectedly, tremendous slowness, and fast draining battery despite all of the battery saver settings turned on and all apps closed after use. I have cleared the cache a dozen times, almost daily at this point just to keep the phone working. I bought extra storage and move my pictures and videos to the cloud instantly and I delete them from the device due to slowness.
At the end of the day, no matter what I do the problems remain. This phone is terrible and I just learned that it is no longer being sold. I guess Motorola realized it was junk, too. But this definitely deters me from going with Motorola in the future.
It is bundled with Lollipop, can we update its OS to latest available OS?
Will it work in Pakistan?
Seriously Motorola... Update took away the fact I can't turn off the battery saver by the notification. And the talk to text button is gone. No where to be found. Should not have updated this this. I now hate this phone solely on those 2 thing. Other than the fact I could care less about the screen share thing or the only charger that works is the original charger or the annoying screen turns on all the time I'm driving g or the fact I can't turn off the notification system when I drive
God I hate this phone. I was excited to get it when I first bought it, and at first I was impressed by the many features. I can understand the shining reviews which prompted me to buy this phone, because they reviewed the phone after a week of use. As time goes on, the Turbo 2 gets shittier and shittier. Now, about 14 months in, the camera is slow as shit and often doesn't work, it needs to be wiggled to be able to charge at all, and when it does charge, it is extremely slow and the battery doesn't last nearly as long as advertised (with the cord that came with the phone), the capabilities hardly compare to iOS, and the vibrations make a horrid broken sound. Problem with these tech reviewers is they only experience the product for a week or so.
