    Just got my new Droid Turbo this weekend and the phone has been updating the installed apps like crazy.

    There was a round of 15 updates yesterday, and now a round of 12 updates today.

    However, almost all of the apps are requesting permission to access:

    Photos/Media/Files
    Camera/Microphone
    Wi-Fi connection information
    Device ID & call information
    Contacts/Calendar

    A friend is just telling me to click the ACCEPT icon for all of them...

    Any input?

    Thanks!

    For the most part, you should be able to accept and not worry. If you go through your social apps, you will see the amount of permissions required. The only time I would REALLY worry is if you got the app outside of the Play Store from a questionable source.
