    That might not have come out right. I meant I never got great battery life on my T2. This phone is, so far anyway, quite a bit better then my T2 was when new. It's because of the processor which uses much less battery.

    I was comparing processors snapdragon 810 to 835 and there seems to be more throughput and lte bands on the 835. The 820 I read had overheating issues not sure about the 810 with overheating but mines been overheating alot lately

    I just got my z2 force tonight and have been setting it up. It's zippier and hasn't overheated like my turbo2 yet.my turbo2 says 8 hours left at 50%(never lasts that long) and the z2 force says 7 hours at 84% which makes me a bit concerned but I am going to watch it and see if it lasts longer than it indicates and if it's better than turbo2... Or if I am going to have to get battery mod, more to come....

    The back is slippery to grip. I did one drop test on a rug no damage breaks or scratches.
    Is the charger that comes with the box a turbo charger?
    Is there a gel case that will fit over the z2 with battery mod attached?

    Yes, it's a turbo charger. No, I haven't seen any case that goes over the battery mod.

    But it doesn't say turbo charging when plugged in like the turbo did?
    Is there a way to change how many bad ow attempts before the phone wipes. Does it default at 10?
    BTW it says 67%battery and still saying 7 hours left. I don't think it's estimates are very good.

    They dropped the "turbo charging" notice on the first Z when they dropped the Turbo name. All Android phones do it now, so it's nothing special anymore. LOL

    Oh, and the time left on battery thing is not accurate. IME, it never has been. Check your SOT when you get down to single digits battery life. It's better then my T2 was, no question.

    What is sot and where do I check it. Are you talking about system on time? If so then my phone has been on for 6 hours and is at 70% left and it says 11 hours left and I have been using my phone frequently during the past six hours and it doesn't get hot while charging or using.
    Very happy so far with z2 force traded in the old turbo 2 that was hot and slow and said good riddance but it was one of the best phones for it's time before the battery went

    Actually the first Z Force Droid and Z Play Droid do display Turbo Charging when using the original charger. I believe "Turbo Charging" is a Droid monicker and since the new Z2 Series is not a "Droid" line they no longer use the "Turbo Charging" display and use fast charging like other non-Droid phones.

    Loving the z2 force is said bye to my failing turbo 2 hopefully the force will last longer then the year the turbo did. Maybe I consult with Luke Skywalker

    I have drop tested and no scratches on screen very happy so far.

    I have some scratches on the corners. I seriously drop this thing at least weekly.

    SOT stands for Screen On Time. If it isn't something you used to check on your old phone then you won't be impressed. LOL
    To get to it, go to settings, battery. In the list of things that used battery below, screen is usually first. Click that. There's your SOT.

    Sot 1 hr 25 minutes 64% battery left it's been on 7 hrs and it's estimating 11 hrs left. Pretty good if it lasts that long my old turbo 2 would have needed a charge by now.
    No case no screen protector no style mod no scratches.
    Have you ever gotten it wet? Wonder how it will do on a rainy day? Like if the pogo pins get wet or damp in a rainy day will it have issues or shock you. It suprises me that the pogo pins aren't electric if the can be used to charge phone from battery mod
