    I just purchased a Droid Turbo on Swappa and wondering what are some common issues I might be look forward to.
    I am excited about 3gig of ram and the 21meg camera. Is this phone super fast or what and how's the camera?
    I didn't research these questions before purchasing.
    Are there any fixes for any issues that are out there? Seems every phone has some kind of issue or two.
    Thanks for any help

    It may be that the lack of a response, rkirk, is because you purchased a phone that doesn't really have any issues. Could also be because it is late. But really, Motorola makes an excellent phone with a great reputation for quality phone/data reception, good build, great battery, very responsive, etc. The only thing that motorolas have not been the best in is camera, although probably only noticeable to few people. Myself, not being familiar with the turbo or their more recent phones, that may be old news. Enjoy your new phone. I have a feeling you will not be disappointed.

    Yea, it was my bedtime when I sent that last night.
    I have been using a LG G2 for the last year. Sending this from the previous phone (droid rzr maxx) since I just cracked the screen on G2. I've been wanting try a droid again, so I convinced its a good time to do it now. I've replaced the screen on my G2 once already, I'll probably go ahead and do it again just for another back up.
    I did like my RAZR maxx a lot.

    Yes, I liked my RAZR maxx a lot also. It was definitely a great phone. Went from that to a RAZR M, also a great phone. My son inherited both of those and they still work today. He now has a Moto x. He, along with many others, will only stick with Motorola. Oh, I was teasing about it being late. After I finished the first sentence, It dawned on me that it could be another reason.

    I'm definitely ready to try out the turbo. I use my phone a lot for work, emails, text, lots of pictures. Having the speed will help to keep up a lot.
    I did like the G2, but I've always kinda missed some features of the droid

    You won't regret it. It's a pretty awesome phone.

    One issue is possible fraying of the nylon back but really, that's about the only one I know.
    Any other issues are really just things people don't like about Lollipop.

    The turbo is lightning fast...do this...when you get the phone..make sure its on 5.1..if not..take all the updates and charge it as you do...then do a factory data reset (Moto recommended after a big os change) now after the factory reset...I'd let the phone finish charging...but you don't have to.

    Now set up your device and enjoy..taking all the updates and doing a factory data reset, will insure you have a fast, snappy device...for other tips and tricks..check back after you've got it..

    I don't think it's only Google that recommends this but highly recommended across the board. I would also advise doing an fdr first thing for any refurbished, used or replacement phone just to make sure that it is entirely clear of any residuals left behind.

    I have no problems with my TB and I like the camera for what I use it for.

    I can't find anything to back this up. Not that I don't believe you but it seems odd to me Google would recommend this. It would make them look bad, don't you think?
    "Yea, our updates can be buggy, so you should FDR when you get a new OS."
    Apple certainly doesn't suggest that.

    I think Google's stance, or maybe it's phone manufacturers' stance, is it is helpful to do an fdr but not necessary when installing updates. But generally you are correct because they tend to maintain an fdr is not necessary. Yet they will maintain that if you have problems that can't be resolved using simpler methods, an fdr is recommended. There was one update/upgrade (can't remember which one, maybe honeycomb) where it was said to be necessary. That advise could have resulted after the fact due to many reported problems with the updates. Anyway, to be on the safe side, if I have a phone that is used, a replacement, or refurbished I do an fdr before installing all my junk on it. I hate being stuck having to do an fdr when I've just got my phone exactly how I want it.
