Motorola's Moto X Force dares gravity with new shatterproof display

Motorola has just launched its new Moto X Force, a new phone whose USP lies in its display which is guaranteed not to shatter unless you decide to pass a bullet through it.

What's so different about the Moto X Force?

Moto ShatterShield, which is what the 5.4-inch display is called, has a Quad HD display shielded by five layers that can absorb shocks and heavy impacts. This ensures that you won't have to live with a phone with a cracked display for at least the next couple of years.

Yet another feature that stands out in the Moto X Force is its battery. The high capacity 3,760 mAh one looks too heavy for a phone of its class, yet its presence offers 48 hours of life without a recharge. Through the phone's TurboPowerTM charging feature, you can add 13 hours of battery life on just a 15-minute charge. 

Moto X Force: Internal specifications

A look at the innards suggests that the Moto X Force is a true all-round flagship that's not just punching at one or two areas.

The phone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 SoC, the most powerful processor yet and carries a 3GB RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage. Running on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS, it has a 64-bit architecture and its microSD slot can allow as much as 2TB of extra storage.

Moto X Force also carries a feature-rich 21MP main camera and a wide-angled 5MP front camera. Among the camera's principle features are Full HD video recording, Phase Detect Auto-Focus for quick snaps, Night Mode and Panorama.

Among Moto X Force's best features are a 540 ppi display resolution, wireless charging capability, NFC and 4G capability, 4K video capturing, water protection and customisation features through Moto Maker.

'The Moto X Force has the same flagship toppling specs as the Moto X Play and Moto X Style that were launched earlier this year. The shatterproof display is obviously going to be its calling card, but the fabulous customisation options via MotoMaker that have become the USP of Motorola devices coupled with the 3760mAH battery, 21-MP camera and pure Android experience will further bolster its place amongst the heavies in the premium handset market.'

‘Combine this with a choice of 32/64 GB internal memory expandable upto 2TB via microSD and water repellent coating, you have a winner in your hands.' says Sunetra Chakravarti, Editor at Mobile Choice.
