    Looks sweet! I am not a big fan of the red Droids...but that does look nice.

    I had the moto x for on day before switching to the turbo. I actually like the feel of the turbo more when I'm holding it with one hand. No complain so far!

    So the real question is...is the Turbo worth losing my unlimited data plan at Verizon and still having to pay $200 for the phone, or is it even worth paying for outright ($600) and keeping my unlimited plan?

    The phone is pretty rock-solid. Battery life is very good (not the 2-days advertised, though, but an easy 24 hours). Call clarity is typical moto, and the speakerphone is also very good.

    I have no issues with the camera. Don't take a ton of photos, but they seem pretty good to me and waiting half a second for it to snap is no big deal (and I think this will improve with software updates).

    Wifi and 4G signal strength maybe isn't the best, but fine (I haven't tried he 5ghz band yet). I've hit 4G speeds - on my pc with USB tether - over 40Mbps!

    So, yeah, it's worth full retail to keep unlimited (assuming you regularly use 10+ gigs, otherwise other plans may be better to get the subsidy). Looking forward to Lollipop to see what this phone is really capable of (and waiting for some of my apps to catch-up to the hardware). I actually like the Moto actions/attentive display, though I've disabled much of it because Locale is still a bit more refined. Still tons of potential with location based setting and apps/activities if Google and Moto really focus on it.

    But it also depends on what you're coming from. Even the MotoX1 I don't think I'd upgrade....but if your phone is 2 years or older, I think the Turbo is the best out there right now. Under no circumstance would I buy a new phone today with less than 3gigs of ram (which, unfortunately, limits options for those of us that wanted a phone smaller than 5")

    New Turbo owner today, and so far loving it, despite full $599 price. Original Droid owner, then Maxx, now Turbo. Keep wondering if 1 year down the road, a regular website normally uses 500kb to open and suddenly uses ,5 mb? keeping my unlimited. Happy Turkey day to all u Droid fans

    I agree with you on this one. Having unlimited data that is something I have no intention on giving up. We're only going to be using more data as time goes on, and with the lack of removal of SD cards in most devices. And with the addition of cloud storage and ultimately the addition of web applications, as well as higher resolution cameras it just means we're going to be doing for more communicating data rather than just using it on the phone and working with apps.
