Early this week Verizon and Motorola announced the new DROID Turbo 2. This phone certainly has our attention, but there’s one complaint many of us had right away, the Verizon logo on the front. Sitting in between the two speakers on the front is a Verizon check mark that frankly looks pretty ugly. However if you’re not fan of it, it’s actually really easy to remove.
The new “Shattershield” technology on the Turbo 2 consists of 5 layers of protection. The top 2 layers or “lens” are actually not glass, but are actually made up of a poly-carbonate and acrylic polymer. That material is very prone to scratches so the DROID Turbo 2 actually comes out of the box with what is essentially a very good screen protector. In the case of this Verizon exclusive, that’s where the Verizon logo lies.
These exterior lenses are user replaceable so if the Verizon check mark isn’t something you’d like on your DROID Turbo 2, you can simply pick up a new lens without that logo. You could also simply go without the part, but let’s keep in mind that it will expose the phone to more damage and it also may affect your warranty. Details on that are unclear right now. How Motorola is planning to sell these lenses is something we simply don’t know yet, but when they do we’ll just have to hope for the best that we can get the version for the Moto X Force here in the States.
