We used to think Gorilla Glass means ,”Oh!! this phone will never break”, “It will never crack when it falls.” Many people buy into Samsung phones having this belief until the phone drops. Reality sets in, and they see that Gorilla Glass cracks too. Motorola is here to change that trend with the Droid Turbo 2.
Meet the phone with the world’s first shatter proof display. This is a phone that is guaranteed not to crack or shatter from a fall at least for four years. Hold on. We never said you trow this phone off a building and pray it doesn’t crack 😛 This Shatter Shield technology protects against the regular fall from table, your pockets, your hands, you get the point now.
Motorola claims it consists of five layers designed to absorb shock and guaranteed not to crack or shatter.
Layer 1: Exterior Protective Lens – A protective layer with a proprietary hardcoat designed to guard against dents and abrasion.
Layer 2: Interior Lens – This highly transparent layer provides a clear protective shield that won’t crack or shatter.
Layer 3: Dual touch layer – In the event of an impact that damages the primary touch-sensitive layer, a second layer takes over to maintain touchscreen performance.
Layer 4: Stunning AMOLED display – The flexible AMOLED display absorbs shock and provides amazing picture quality.
Layer 5: Aluminum chassis – A rigid aluminum chassis provides structural integrity and durability.
