Hello, typo. Geez. Did anybody understand my last post? Fixed.
Hmmm, maybe Shatterproof and not so scratch prone? Have they finally perfected it? Why is no one else trying this? Hello, Gorilla Glass? #SoManyQuestions

I understood your last post, probably read the same news article you did.

I think all Shattershield screens are going to scratch; I don't see how they can make it soft enough to be Shattershield and yet hard enough to be scratch resistant. That's where tempered glass screen protectors help.

Not glass. Doesn't scratch. Doesn't crack.

Since they are based in Chicago, my guess would be CST

Almost pulled the trigger on a G6. Then I watched some drop videos... Yea... Moto... you got me. I'll wait a little longer.
I'll never understand any companies decision to put glass on the back of a phone...

I think I found it. Motorola is BACK in Russia. Apparently Moto left the market some time ago and is now.... back. Posted 23 hours ago.


PereDroid reporting.
Always on the case.

Cool, good for them. The Ruskies need Shattershield phones too! Hopefully the US announcement of the new Z Force model will be sooner rather than later.

Also, how does the Z2 Play come out... before the Z2. Don't Play models usually follow the announcement of the next gen? Not precede? What is Moto doing?

The last few years...Yes that has been the case. My guess is that Verizon is the hold up for the Z Force 2 because it will probably be a Droid model initially and exclusive to them for a while before released as an unlocked model. So Moto didn't want to wait on them any longer and announced the Z Play 2 since it's not a Droid model right out of the gate. There have already been leaks that the new Z Force will be a Verizon exclusive Droid for a few months and then be released to all carriers later.
