All the way back in 2015, Motorola looked to shock the world with its new ShatterShield Display technology when it was introduced alongside the DROID Turbo 2. The design of this new display technology helped prevent your display from actually shattering into pieces in case you dropped it from a substantial distance.
Since its inception, we have seen the ShatterShield display on the Moto Z Force and the all-new Moto Z2 Force, and Motorola really wants to drive home the point of the display not shattering. To offer another demonstration, the company has published a new video which shows more than 100 employees dropping the Moto Z2 Force onto concrete outside. According to the video, not a single display cracked, which is pretty impressive.
However, there’s a catch with this test. While the ShatterShield Display won’t crack or shatter, there are likely to be plenty of scratches on the display after it’s been dropped. There have even been a few cases where the display gets scuffed up while it’s being housed in your pocket, without any actual damage being applied to the device.
But, it gets worse from there as you can no longer replace the ShatterShield coating on your anymore. Instead, you’ll have to ship your phone to Motorola and have the company replace the outer coating. This could result in a huge pain in the rear, and one that can be rather frustrating. On the bright side, you won’t have to worry about a cracked display though.
Let us know what you think about the above video and if you’ve decided to pick up a Moto Z2 Force for yourself.
