    First of all let me say this thing flies in everything I do except for games. I'm not talking about how fast the games themselves are running but rather how fast the screen reacts to my touch while playing. My issue is I need to either long press to register touches or I have do deal with a slight lag after I press on the screen before it reacts. This is happening with a large number of games I have tried. I have tried both dalvik and art and same issue. I hope I don't have a bad phone but I have yet to see any posts about this. I know games working well are not a huge priority but I do mess around here and there with some games and with the power this thing has it seems odd I have this lag. Anyway just posting to see if it's happening with other turbos or if I need to return this thing before my 14 days are up.

    I'm afraid I don't game on my phone, but in everyday use I've noticed exactly the opposite. The screen is so sensitive that it's constantly registering a "tap" when I'm trying to scroll or swipe.

    I would say the majority of games I have tried are doing one of the 2 things. I know the angry birds games have a slight lag after I touch the screen so that's a big game that is having issues I can see. One that comes to mind that is having the long press issue is diamond digger saga. I tested a few of the games on my Rezound to make sure I was not seeing things and it's fine and my droid Maxx had none of these issues. Also don't get me wrong I love this phone so far except for this touch lag in games.

    I'm not personally a big gamer BUT gaming IS certainly a big deal for many many smart phone owners and a Flagship device touting immense power and speed should have this as a core deliverable. How does this crap happen? Certain things should just be right and present at jump street. (shaking head)

    The funny thing is.. Dead trigger 2 ran just fine on my Droid Maxx... Now the super phone (droid turbo) has big issues? Even with the updated adreno chip and 805 processor?? It's just odd..

    But dead trigger 2 also doesn't like the current generation of Galaxy tab 7 either..

    Wouldn't this be more of an issue with the apps and not the phone?

    If it was just one game and rest were fine then yes it's an app problem. But this seems like it's a Motorola problem. Nothing that a software update shouldn't be able to fix though.

    Yeah this is a device issue.. Not an app issue.. If a game runs fine on the maxx.. Then it should be running fine on the turbo.. But I've found several games that hardly run on the turbo and they run just fine on the maxx.. Definitely curable Via an update..

    It's just hard to fathom that a device like this can't run a game without lagging.
    As you know I am not a fan of the whole "should be fixed in a future update" line of thinking. That's completely unacceptable IMO. There are too many issues popping up on this particular device that fall into this category. (Camera quality, battery life, lag, just to name a few) It's ashame because it really is a nice device overall.
