Every two seconds a smartphone screen shatters, and what’s worse, according to a recent survey, roughly one-in-five users are currently using a device with a cracked or shattered screen.

Enter the new Moto X Force, featuring Moto ShatterShield. Billed as the world’s first shatterproof smartphone display, the Moto X Force display is made of an integrated system of five layers which absorb shock from impact and which are guaranteed not to shatter.

This means, according to its manufacturer, its ultra hi-res 5.4” Quad HD AMOLED display will always bring your photos and videos to life flawlessly.

Also on board is a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 810  processor with octa-core CPUs and a 21MP rear camera with rapid focus as well as a 5MP wide angle front-facing camera with flash for selfies. Motorola promises up to 48 hours of battery life and TurboPowerTMcharging for upto 13 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging

Various design options are available including durable ballistic nylon and genuine pebbled leather, and you can even choose the colour of the lightweight, aluminium frame.

Starting today, you can visit Motorola.co.uk to register your interest in the Moto X Force. It will be available from mid-November in the UK direct from Motorola.co.uk with prices starting at £499 for 32GB version and £534 for 64GB.  It will also be available from mid-November via Carphone Warehouse, from £29.99 upfront cost and £32.00 per month on Vodafone (based on a 24 month contract) –www.carphonewarehouse.com

Rob Kerr, mobiles expert at uSwitch.com says: “The importance of Motorola’s shatterproof screen – an industry first – will resonate with anyone who’s had a butterfingers moment.

“In a recent uSwitch survey, anti-shatter screens topped a list of the ‘most useful’ features on a smartphone, with 70% of mobile owners wanting one.

“A four-year guarantee affirms Motorola’s confidence in its unbreakable screen. It’s a promise the mobile maker will be hoping gives faith to customers. It’s also a potential money-saver too, as ordinarily people would have to budget for repairs themselves.

“Perhaps a less lengthy guarantee would have made this phone a bit cheaper. However, a price just shy of £500 and flagship-level specs puts it on a par with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One A9.”
