The Moto X Force is the international version of the Verizon-exclusive US model Droid Turbo 2 and the current flagship model in the Moto line. With a Sony 1/2.4-inch 21MP IMX230 sensor, F2.0 aperture, 4K video and a flash-equipped 5MP front camera, the Force's imaging specification is very similar to the Moto X Style. However, it comes with higher-end processing components, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset and 3GB RAM.

The Moto X Force's stand-out feature is its AMOLED display. At 5.4" it is a little smaller than the Moto X Style's 5.7" IPS variant but offers Motorola's new ShatterShield protection which means it's guaranteed not to crack or shatter. The device body is water-resistant with a solid metal frame and a back that is covered with a rubberized material, making the Moto X Force an ideal phone for use in rougher surroundings.
