    Love my droid maxx but the battery is waining and the phone is getting out if date

    The turbo looks good but don't like the dialer and it one antenna so u really need to use HD calling to use the internet at the same time

    The lg g4 looks great but not sure if I can used to the unlock button on the back but morohie makes a case for it so you can get the most battery life. The kg g3 notifications have tool bars that makes u have to slide the notification tray all the way to see texts but I am still leaning to lg g4 as possibly my next phone

    The Samsung 6 looks cool not crazy about the edge version but I tested the fingerprint reader and it works but the button is less Comfortable than then the iPhone which seems to have the best fingerprint interface

    As a G2 user, the buttons on the back are very easy to get use to. I almost prefer them over the side buttons anymore. It's a pretty natural-feeling setup.

    on the move..

    Took me about 5 minutes to acclimate to my G2 and another 5 to prefer it over side buttons. It took me a month to get used to side buttons again when I got a Note4 and I still wish it had buttons on the back.

    Got the g4 and am already used to the buttons on back but not impressed with battery so far might need a morphine or an extended battery if one comes out

    Did you take advantage of the "free"spare battery from the LG site?

    Really? Interesting. Great find and suggestion @leeshor !

    This apparently isn't just the battery and memory card (not that those alone wouldn't be pretty awesome), but it also includes the battery charger which doubles as a caring case for the battery! Noice!

    Here it is folks...

    Yep! Extra nice! If I didn't have the Turbo already, this would be very hard to resist.

    Based on Promotion Restrictions which is the bottom picture in my post, it says that phones purchased at major carrier retail locations, as well as other authorized retail locations and authorized online dealers qualify. That would mean that if you bought it at a Verizon store you can in fact take advantage of this special offer. You must apply for the special offer through a purchase made on or prior to June 30th, you must register online or documentation must be postmarked no later than the 14th of July, and must be received by LG no later than July 22. Again all this information is listed in the Promotion Restrictions above as well as on the website link above.
