    Ooooo...I was thinking it was the super low power mode such as what Samsung introduced

    Doesn't sound like anything spectacular, I remember when updates used to be large differences. Wifi calling is a cool feature though I can see that being useful

    While I like having the option to root, even these two issues aren't really an issue anymore since there are both wireless tether and adblocking options available that don't require root.

    I also feel like Verizon really screwed us over on the Turbo. If this phone wasn't so reliable I would consider the pixel or even the 5X on project fi right now but my turbo is solid workhorse, never a hiccup. When you compare specs it's still up there with the best of the new phones sans the OS.

    Only reason I'm walking away from it is I totally shattered my screen 3 weeks after my 2yr replacement date (because of course), only the second time I've broken my phone naked. (toasted my Bionic in a GoCart crash). Turbo still works fine but that feeling of running over cracks is getting old rapidly. Should have my Pixel XL by mid december.

    Damn,

    Am I really going to be the last Turbo hold out? I guess it's not too surprising considering I was using an original Note on my personal account until last Christmas when my son gave me his "old" Galaxy S5 as a hand-me down.

    I know several people with one. They seem to have sold good in the business sector, and those folks hold onto their phones for a while some times. You might be the only one here, that posts regularly.

    Don't care if it is updated or not and might keep it until Zucchini Lemon Muffins is the software version 10 years from now. So long as it works as it has, it is ok with me.;)

    I just bought 2 off of eBay, couldn't bring myself to like the Moto Z force. Yes, 2, dropped the 1st one right out of the box[​IMG] oops. Don't like the bigger is better trend phones are headed. Still have my original turbo from launch. Lollipop killed the speaker volumes. So the new update can just wait if it was up to me.

    "Headed"? It's already been there bud, it's not like devices have gotten much larger the past couple years.

    But, the fact remains that if I can't close the flap on my shirt pocket, with the standard Verizon holster, it just got too big. Yeah, I walked that walk. 3.5 then 3.7...3.9....4.0...etc. I'm in my happy place, paint, bag and time.
