Verizon Wireless and Motorola yesterday unveiled the next-generation of DROID Android smartphones, the DROID Turbo 2 and DROID Maxx 2, at a media event atop a high-rise tower in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood.

Both new phones are notable for many reasons, but the high-end DROID Turbo 2 stole the show, thanks to its unique "shatter proof" display, the cool "Moto Maker" customization options and an impressive list of tech specs. 

I attended the Turbo 2 event in Manhattan and then hopped on an Acela train back home to Boston, both new DROIDs in hand. I spent the duration of that four-hour trip putting the Turbo 2 through the paces [ Find it on Amazon *What’s this? ].

A few hours aren't enough time to provide an in-depth review of the Motorola DROID Turbo 2, but I did find a set of features I genuinely appreciate — and a handful of things I really don't like. 

First up, the good stuff.
