    Not necessarily, my Maxx is not expandable and I've managed for 2yrs or so.

    Great info on the camera thanks.

    As far as the size, I "say" I want to stay close to the Maxx size, but as was mentioned above I need hands on. I do know, I don't want anything similar to the Samsung Note line.

    Again, I hate to steer anyone away from a Moto phone, but the Turbo 2 and Maxx 2 may not be what you are looking for, both are close to the Note 5 size. Turbo 2 = 5.9" X 3" & 5.4" screen. Maxx 2 = 5.8" X 2.9" & 5.5" screen. Note 5 = 6" X 3" & 5.7" screen. The Galaxy S7, LG G5 and HTC One M9 are close to the Droid Maxx size, but still a little bigger.

    You are not steering me any where lol! You are doing just what this thread was made for, gain info from ppl who have used various devices.

    I hate shopping! You guys are helping me narrow down my options. So when I do go to try out phones, I can try 3 or 4 vs 7 or 8.

    I hate shopping in general, but do enjoy browsing phones in a Verizon store. But I always tell them to leave me alone, I know enough about phones to shop on my own and will ask for a rep if & when I am ready.

    I've grown to stay away from the BigV store, overpriced stuff/accessories. BestBuy and Costco have a great selection and as Sajo said, we know enough to look and gleen info when required.

    There was a news article on here last year that listed the number by phone model and carrier; can't find it now. But, they were all pretty close. The good news is that you can Disable almost all of it if you never use it. I'm not sure if this is specific to the Turbo 2 or all new Verizon phones, but I was happy to find that I could actually Uninstall some of the bloat apps on it! Awesome! Some didn't have the Uninstall option & some did, so I uninstalled the ones that I could and Disabled the rest. Now I never see them again.

    Speaking of disabling apps we cannot delete, Verizon/Samsung has the Voice Mail app, it killed me on the S5 and now on the S6, I've tried to delete/disable etc and nothing is available...
    Any work arounds?

    CNET has a video on the Bloat BTW from Phones to Service Providers etc.

    I know if you uninstall an app it is no longer on your phone and does not use any memory. What about when you disable them. Are we basically "hiding" the app? Does disabling the app aid in the performance of the phone at all?
