    Any way to reduce touch screen sensitivity, perhaps require longer touch, on Droid Turbo? Have repeated unintentional calls, app starts, all manners of operations, with Droid Turbo that never occurred with years of Droid Global.

    Also, any way to remove all the incessant Google demands? How to remove Google voice prompt at top of screen? How to remove constant "update Google Play services" request? Google appears to own my phone although I pay for it not them. Thanks.

    Go into system settings, display, scroll to the bottom and see if the "increase touch sensitivity" box is checked. If so, uncheck and see if that helps.

    There may be another setting I'm unaware of, but that's the only one I can think of.

    Thank you, but I'm afraid my Droid Turbo's Settings, Display does not have an "increase touch sensitivity" checkbox. It does have:
    (1) Brightness level
    (2) Adaptive brightness
    (3) Wallpaper
    (4) Sleep
    (5) Attentive display
    (6) Daydream
    (7) Ambient display
    (8) Use long press for menu [this is the only option that appears to be input related]
    (9) Roaming banner
    (10) Font size
    (11) When device is rotated
    (12) Cast screen
    Settings, Language and Input does not appear to have any input related options.

    I have the opposite situation, mine has become less sensitive since update to 5.1. I sometimes have to tap several vtimes to get response. I too looked for sensitivity setting to no avail. I do recall being able to set it on another phone or OS. Thinking it was my razr maxx.

    There's no increase or decrease sensitivity on the turbo..are you running a case or a screen protector?? You might try installing one of the cheap plastic ones they sell at vzw..other than that...lock your phone and turn of the Motorola add on that keeps waking it or unlocking it..mine are off and I don't have this issue ..

    To remove the Google Search bar, long press on your home screen until you see Wallpaper / Widgets / Settings options appear. Select Settings > slide the Google Search (on home screen) option to OFF.

    I would think that updating Google Play Services once would make that message go away. Updating that should ensure you have the newest Play Store, so you can keep your apps up-to-date.

    Google Play services is relied on by several different apps, so that ones a good idea to keep up to date.

    How about the butt dialing from those idiotic speed dialing buttons. I could kill Moto. My Friends think I'm a doosh.

    Anyway to get rid of those please post it.

    Verizon had no fix.
