    The one major selling point of the Motorola Z2 Force is the Shatter Shield Display. Motorola is one of the only OEMs out there that is advertising their display as shatter resistant. Just about all other flagships have the Achilles heel of shattering when dropped. The Moto Z2 Force uses a multilayer design which includes an exterior lens which some consumers are complaining scratches unreasonably easy. Motorola says this is due to the 3D design of the display. According to Motorola the new Shatter Shield screen has been thoroughly tested and should be just as durable as last years Moto Z Force. They also said they have an improvement to the display that will roll out shortly after launch. Who knows what Motorola has up their sleeves for this upcoming "improvement".

    How do you feel about shatter shield? My Galaxy S8 is already pretty scratch prone. Do you prefer a display that won't shatter but is even more susceptible to scratching?

    I am on my second phone with Shattershield technology(Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Z Force), and don't see myself ever going back to Gorilla Glass as long as Moto keeps making a Shttershield phone. Do they scratch easy? Yes. Do they break / crack when dropped? No. So for me, a $19 glass screen protector from Verizon keeps my screen scratch resistant while the Moto Shattershield technology keeps it shatter proof. I'm good with that.

    It should be well recommended, when purchasing, that a screen protector be installed. I too have used the Turbo 2, and currently Z Force Droid. Screen protector on each before I went out the door of the Verizon store. The problem might be for those who buy online and don't get a screen protector right away. However, it sure sounds like Moto has a different kind of problem with the Z Force 2, that some kind of update will be coming out. I hope that the first Z Force 2 owners can take advantage.

    Moto needs to stop beveling the glass around the edges.

    I start out with screen protectors, but after I break my 3rd or 4th one, I just give up and run naked. My current Turbo 2 is scratched to ****. It doesn't help that on more the one occasion I have tossed my phone around or slammed the screen on the corner of a desk to demonstrate its Shatterproofness. Seriously. But it doesn't effect the display, you can't see the scratches when the phone is lit.
    'Nuff Said

    In my opinion, Motorola makes the best phones and has been for years. For several reasons:
    • Shatterproof phones. I mean, seriously, how has only one company figured this out yet?
    • Very little bloat and what Moto bloat there is, isn't just OK... it's excellent. It still blows my mind that not ONE manufacturer, not Apple, LG, HTC nor even Sammy, has made a driving text app that is on par with what Moto does on its higher end phones and the Moto App that reads texts to you. No, we clamor for car companies to install AA so we can drive safer... we should be demanding phones that work hands free while driving. This is important to me, and a big reason I can't seem to leave Moto. THIS APP is one of the best and it sucks... SUCKS... compared to the Moto app. Go ahead... tell me Siri can do this... tell me Bixby can do this... oh, wait... where IS Bixby? Tell me how great it works on Android Auto. Trust me when I tell you: Moto Voice aka "Drive Mode" smokes every one of them.
    • I'm not even going to mention chopping and twisting. ;)

    Nah, the best things about moto phones is twist wrist for camera and karate chop for flashlight. I use both daily numerous times and love it every time.
    Well and giant batteries are also nice to have. 11 hours of screen time on my z play without any mods!

    I hope that didn't come off angry? But why is no one demanding this from the other companies? There was a push briefly for Apple to do it but that faded.

    Notice my last line in that post Xeene. ;)

    I miss having that... LG has... double press the volume down for camera and double press volume up (with the screen of WTF) for screen capture+

    yeah, LG I don't need screen cap + as a shortcut... I need my flashlight for a shortcut.
