We all have experienced it, one way or another.
Your phone slips from your hand, drops to the ground; you pick it up and then go through that painstaking moment to check if your screen is cracked.
But tech-giant, Motorola believes cracked screens could soon be a thing of the past.
In a partnership with Verizon, Motorola introduced the Droid Turbo 2 last week, which claims to be the first phone with a shatterproof screen.
Its five layer shatter-shield technology is designed to be shock absorbent.
The next layer is a flexible display that looks and feels like plastic.
In front of that is a flexible touch layer followed by a flexible lens layer. And it’s all topped with a hard exterior lens that works like a screen protector.
Notice that the word “glass” isn’t included in the materials — because there isn’t any in the Droid Turbo 2.
But you wouldn’t know it — it looks and feels just like the display of any other glass smartphone.
The back of the screen is an aluminium chassis that the rest of the display is fastened to, which makes the screen durable.
The Droid Turbo 2 is selling in the US for $624, just over K1,800.
