    So my mom had a Droid Maxx for 2 years, and it was time to get a Droid Turbo 2. But the Verizon sales rep recommended that she buy a Turbo instead... according to him the Turbo 2 has "a ton of issues and bugs", the screen dents when it falls and becomes unusable, the screen is too big and uncomfortable, the specs are basically the same, and he offered a $200 credit if she bought the Turbo.
    So what's the deal here?? Is Verizon trying to get rid of its Turbo stock? Maybe I'm just paranoid, but I think the VZ rep was BS'ing.

    You may be on to something there. Though, I think screen size is a personal preference.

    Sales spiff for selling discontinued stock? We used to get them for selling the previous years model.

    So there's a bonus in it for the sales rep.

    I have no evidence just speculating. Could also just be that reps personal experience or opinion. Best thing is to research online. See what the majority says.

    I would agree with what has been posted already: personal opinion of the sales rep.....where is this so called list of bugs and issues. And trying to clear out the Turbo to make more room for the Turbo 2. I say look at both without a sales rep hovering over you (I always look at phones without them anywhere near me) and buy whichever one she likes better, regardless of what he said. If she wants to customize it you would have to go with the Turbo 2 for Moto Maker options.
