Moto ShatterShield display won’t let you down.

The Moto X Force display is made of an integrated system of five layers that absorb shock from impact and are guaranteed not to shatter2.

Plus, it’s designed to go the distance. You get power for days – up to 48 hours of battery life3 with the 3760mAh battery. And when it does run out of juice, bring it right back to life with the world’s fastest5 TurboPowerTM charging – that’s up to 8 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging4 through the 15W TurboPower charger in box.

The Moto X Force comes with 32GB internal storage so you can store all the pictures and videos you click without worry. Get tons more space for pictures, videos, music, and apps with an external storage of up to 2TB.

1Motorola Global Shattered Screen survey was conducted via an online survey of a total of 6,019 adults ages 18+ from September 29 – October 9, 2015. Adults were surveyed in each of the following countries: US (N=1018), UK (N=1000), Brazil (N=1000), China (N=1000), Mexico (N=1000) and India (N=1001).

2The display and embedded lens are warranted against shattering and cracking for four (4) years from the original date of purchase; scratches or other damage to the protective lens is not covered by this warranty, but should always be in place to prevent scratches and other damage to the underlying components. This phone is not shockproof or designed to withstand all damage from dropping. All other warranty exclusions, including scratches and other cosmetic damage, intentional damage or abuse, normal wear and tear and other limitations apply; Visit www.motorola.com for additionaldetails.

3All battery life claims are approximate and based on a standard mixed use profile. The mixed use profile is based on Motorola devices on major 4G LTE networks with excellent coverage and includes both usage and standby time. Out-of-box settings are applied to the mixed use profile to project battery performance. Actual battery performance will vary and depends on many factors including signal strength, network configuration, age of battery, operating temperature, features selected, device settings, and voice, data, and other application usage patterns.

4 Battery must be substantially depleted; charging rate slows as charging progresses.

5 Based on average smartphone charging rate (mA) in the first 15 minutes. Tests compared other 2015 premium smartphones with standard micro-USB connectors using their in-box rapid charging solution. Testing as of July 2015.

*Actual available capacity of user storage and internal memory is less because the operating system, software and other functions utilize part of this capacity. The available capacity may change when you upgrade the device.
