When Motorola and Verizon announced the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 and claimed that it had a shatterproof display, we were quietly suspicious – could a smartphone display really be shatterproof in all situations? Well, perhaps to settle the matter once and for all, the crew over at UnlockRiver have put together video of a most ambitious Droid Turbo 2 drop test – dropping the device from 275 metres, or 900 feet, in the air and seeing whether the screen shatters. Before you watch the video, let’s not forget that even the average phone will probably shatter at 5-10 metres, let along 275:
You might want to pick up your jaw off the ground. Yes, after that monstrous fall and bounce, the Droid Turbo 2 – bar some slight separation at the top left corner – is completely functional and, most importantly, the display has not shattered. Considering the average smartphone has a distinct possibility of shattering when dropped from waist height, this is an thoroughly amazing feat. Whatever devil’s magic this is, it is possibly the most impressive smartphone engineering feat we may experience for some time – bravo Motorola, bravo.
