Double vision: Motorola has 2 new commercials for the Droid Turbo 2

Motorola wants you to know your Samsung and Apple phones are not as shatterproof as its ShatterShield accompanied Droid Turbo 2. The agony!

Published onApril 30, 2016

Does anyone else see an emoji on the bottom bezel of the phone?

Motorola may be having a hard time these days thanks to a lawsuit that was just filed against it.  Thankfully, it can at relish in the fact that its Moto X Force/Droid Turbo 2 is virtually indestructible. Thanks to ShatterShield technology, the product is basically impervious to whatever kind of assault you might put it through or, as the case may be, life does itself – accidents do happen after all.

In a pair of quick new videos to promote its Verizon Droid Turbo 2, Motorola has taken a not-so-subtle slight at the fact that its competitors’ products are not built to last in quite the same way. A certain curved creation by Samsung can be seen in the first one, and a not-so-anonymous Apple offering in the second. Have  a look, first at the glass Galaxy:

And now the Cupertino creation:

Both videos feature an ambulance saving a character of sorts, then the key phrase “Save your world with a shatterproof screen” appears along with the Droid Turbo 2 logo and phone. Naturally there is also some fine print pasted at the portion near the bottom.

Curiously the videos lack any kind of demonstration of the shatterproof screen on the Moto-made mobile, something one might expect to find in a video that seeks to promote the fact that the screen is, well, supposed to be shatterproof. Then again at around 15 seconds each, it seems the key was just to showcase the horrors of a broken phone and asks the customer to research for visual evidence surrounding the Turbo 2 themselves.

With the iPhone video in particular the side of the phone is clearly shown as dented in, making it look quite bad indeed. Despite being made of plastic, the Droid Turbo 2 is also subject to damage on the frame as well.

On the topic of the Droid Turbo 2, it’s also worth pointing out a recent Tweet by veteran leaker Evan Blass:

It’s possible that this year will see another installment in the Turbo series, though it’s doubtful it will be unveiled soon, though Motorola is planning something.

What do you think of these commercials? Did Moto make magic or has it not offered enough excellent evidence? Leave your comments below!
