    This thread was actually going to be a live on air ordeal where we would have taken live questions about the phone. Though that idea is not out of the picture for tomorrow, I am opening this thread up to any of you who may have questions about the device from the set up process on. So have at it.

    There were some Verizon apps that auto install upon seeing up your phone. But they all can be removed.

    If you did a data transfer, does transferring data from old phone to new bring with it any negative aspects as far as performance or lag?

    Shouldn't but it can. I've done a backup from my 6p to this and I've noticed weird stuff.

    Lag no. Now I did notice that there were time it felt like it didn't register my touch but that could have been because I was trying to film while touching and not touching the right area.

    Overall the device actually felt buttery smooth, even more so than my 6P. Battery performance was amazingly awesome. It was like it was sipping the battery, where my Nexus 6P is slipping. I am considering a fdr for my 6P because I am thinking my 6P should be doing better with sipping on battery considering it is on 7.1.1.

    If I had one thing to say about my OG Turbo it's that it's been the most stable phone I've ever had, I've never FDR'd it and have only cleared cache twice because I felt like I should be doing something by then since all my previous devices before it had needed regular something or other. Since i have 2 years worth of device "DNA damage" if you will, so I had concerns about doing a transfer and risking any gremlins causing havoc on my new device.
