More than 100 Motorola employees drop their Moto Z2 Force at the same time to show off ShatterShield

Motorola shook up the mobile world in 2015 when it introduced a shatter-proof screen for the Motorola DROID Turbo 2. The ShatterShield technology was refined and subsequently deployed on Motorola’s next two flagship models, the Moto Z Force and the Moto Z2 Force. With its multi-layered approach, and the use of P-OLED instead of glass, the ShatterShield display is designed to survive a fall of five-feet or less without cracking or breaking.

With the ShatterShield display, the biggest fear that phone owners have is gone. Because the screen is plastic though, it is more sensitive to …

The Moto Z2 Force Edition affected by the "jelly effect" issue, what gives?

It’s been less than a month since the Moto Z2 Force Edition made its debut in the United States, so many customers have already been able to purchase one. If you are one of those people, then you might not have known that the Moto Z2 Force is affected by the same “jelly effect” issue as the OnePlus 5.

Moto Z2 Force Edition is up on the torture table and that shatter-proof display sure scratches easily

This year, Moto made things simpler with its flagships — instead of launching heirs to both the elegant Moto Z and the durable Moto Z Force, it just went with a Moto Z2 Force Edition, which takes cues from both worlds. It’s slim and lacks a headphone jack, yet sports the shatter-proof display.

YouTuber JerryRigEverything is well-known for running a pre-planner, elaborate torture test on every hot device that comes out and, sure enough, the Moto Z2 Force Edition was destined for his chopping block. It got tested for scratch durability, bend durability, and resistance to flame (the last one …

Motorola cuts the price of its unlocked Moto Z2 Force by $79 (UPDATE)

The new Motorola flagship, the Moto Z2 Force, is the sequel to last year’s Moto Z Force. And the Lenovo owned Motorola made some rather controversial decisions when it came to this year’s model. Among the most discussed was the sharp 22% drop in battery capacity from the 3500mAh cell used on the Moto Z Force Droid to the 2730mAh cell used on the sequel. Motorola claims that the smaller battery on the Moto Z2 Force still offers all-day power, some of which could be due to the energy sipping 10nm process used on the Snapdragon 835 chipset found inside the Moto Z2 Force.

Another issue is that …
