    I am getting ready to part with my droid turbo but dont want to go to the droid turbo 2 because it is such a close comparison. Is the moto z force considered the new droid turbo 3 or has anyone heard some rumors about a turbo 3. Hate to say it but the s7 is also looking pretty good with good battery reviews, fingerprint scanner, and its water resistant capabilities.

    The Droid Z is the 2016 Droid. I would not expect a Turbo 3. It has been a long time since Verizon released two Droid phones in the same year. I think the Turbo line ended with the Turbo 2. Good luck on your search, hope you find the "right phone" for you. That's all that really matters, a phone that you are happy with.

    i want to like the droid z but im not a fan of the changing backs and also dont know if i would still have my turbo without my lifeproof case and with the selection of cases for the z i dont think it would be a good choice...maybe this time around Samsung would be the way to go

    That's a tough choice, it's hard to say anything negative about Samsung phones, they make great devices. Plus, if I did say anything negative about Samsung around here, I would instantly be run out of town and my account would be deleted. For me personally, the Turbo 2 has been the best phone I have ever owned (and I have owned most of the Droid lineup over the years). But that doesn't mean it's the best phone for you. Good luck with your search & decision.

    Do you see much of a difference from the droid turbo to the turbo 2

    In some ways, yes. It's a little larger, it's a different shape...more like a Moto X. And it has a shatter proof screen. That's not visibly different, but adds that extra "all is good" feeling if you drop your phone. Some of the Moto App features are a little different with Marshmallow. And it does have an SD Card slot. None of these are huge differences (well... shatter shield is) but I liked it right from the start because it's like a Moto X, and I always wanted a Moto X with a large battery. That's the turbo 2 in a nutshell in my opinion.

    I've had the droid z force for a couple of weeks and I like it a lot... I'm not particularly hard to satisfy but I like the Motorola format of the Android system. I have a Nexus tablet and have just given up my Moto X. The z force is very fast considering I have about 5000 pictures of assorted subjects including my dogs and grand children that tend to slow things down in other phones. For me, and I'm somewhat dyslexic, I don't feel comfortable with Samsung which tends to put the bottom three home buttons in reverse order of the Motorola format. But that's just me and my special needs and it messes me up to use a tablet with one way of operating and a phone with the oppositeMy husband however loves the Samsung products and tried his hardest to convince me to try the Samsung... But two years is a long time for me to try to think backwards half the time for what's natural for me, and I didn't want to spend 2 years( installment payment period) paying for what would have been a mistake(for me).

    FWIW, you'd be surprised at just how quickly you would have adjusted to the buttons on the bottom. I went 4+ years with it being set up the way your device, (and every other Android device) currently is, with the original Galaxy S and the Galaxy S3. Then I got the S5 and that was the year that Samsung decided to change things up with their capacitive keys. I absolutely hated it in the beginning, because (like most people), we aren't comfortable with change, no matter how small.
    I'll admit it was irritating in the beginning, but after about 2 weeks tops, it was second nature and i didn't even think about it from then on. Funny thing is, now I can't imagine it being any other way and when I go into Verizon to test devices other than Samsung, I feel the exact way you were feeling. LOLz! As often as we use our smartphones, you'd be surprised at just how quickly we adapt to something like this. Don't dismiss an otherwise great device over something so minor, even though it doesn't really seem that way at the time.
    Regardless, congrats on your new Moto! It's always exciting getting a new device and I'm sure you'll be more than satisfied with the Moto Z Force ! Enjoy

    I still have the S5, but my significant other just purchased the Note 7....it's an amazing device. I'm definitely jealous!

    Thanks cr6, I appreciate your post...I was tempted to give it a try because of how much my husband loves his s5, but I was afraid that because of my dyslexia, I wouldn't be able to adapt. Maybe when I have to get a new tablet, which I only use at home at leisure, I can take the time to give a Samsung product a try!
