    We are 48 hours from two of Motorola's latest devices to be up for announcement and/or pre-order. The Nexus 6 is a 6 inch (technically 5.96) phablet with a quad core 2.7 Ghz Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GBs of Ram, 3200 mAh battery, 13mp camera, and the option of 32 and 64 GB of memory, running stock android 5.0 Lollipop, and full unlocked to be used on all US Carriers (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, and US Cellular).

    The Droid Turbo is also a Motorola device with a 5.2inch screen with a quad core 2.7 Ghz Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GBs of Ram, 3900 mAh, 21mp camera, 32 GB of memory, running 4.4.4 kit kat (expected to get upgraded to Lollipop soon), and available only through Verizon.

    These are two impressive Motorola devices and really a tough choice for many to choose from. On one hand we finally have a motorola nexus while on the other hand a Droid device that finally have forward looking specs, vs previous droid devices that seemed to be trying to catch up.

    So are you team Turbo or Team Nexus 6 and why?

    I'm really biased against "Droid" devices after my experience years ago regarding how Verizon was with late and non-existent updates. I won't even get into the bloatware debate.

    Are they still that way with their "Droid" devices? I can't imagine picking a "Droid" over a Nexus device.

    Also the camera on the N6 is the same 6 lens Sony camera used on the OnePlus with OIS. I can't deny it.

    Team NEXUS.

    Im on the clock.... I have a 90% idea where I am going to go but will entertain tomorrows announcement from Verizon.

    Plus I will continue to update this thread with reviews and info as it is available for those still on the fence.

    Right now we know the following:

    6 inch vs 5.2
    3200 mAh vs 3900 mAh
    13 mp vs 21 (tomorrow will either confirm or dispute this)
    5.0 Lollipop with swift updates vs 4.4.4 with an update to 5.0 in the future
    All US carrier vs Verizon only
    On screen buttons vs capacitive
    32 & 64 GB version vs 32 GB version
    Come in blue and white vs red and black


    We will update this thread tomorrow with the latest news.

    The capacitive buttons ruin the Droid Turbo for me. I have to go with the Nexus 6, which is also built by Motorola, Yea!

    Vzw really played us all with the OG droid (twas a nexus lets be honest lol) and here's how. That phone was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO popular and it was the original 'DROOOIIIID" lol remember that notification sound lmao. They saw the light and ran with it, still running with it apparently with half of merchandise branded Droid smh. For some reason ppl are still buying into this Droid crap, and yes its crap now that they frown upon rooting, romming, and unlocking, which were ALL perfectly acceptable on the OG. But now that the brand is up and going, everyone wants to throw a hissy fit... but thats jus IMO

    I'm on the fence. Currently have the HTC Droid DNA. Yes it has bloat but at least I was able to disable it. I've been told that the last 2 Droids did not come with as much preloaded crap on them. I'm drawn to the look and the pure Android of the Nexus 6 but the 5.2 size seems like it would be the sweet spot for me and the Motorola software sounds interesting. I haven't owned a Motorola before. A big factor for me will be the battery drain. In theory, the Droid Turbo sounds like it will last forever but so long as my phone makes it through the day, (without having to sweat out the last few hrs...) I'm happy. Either way, I'm excited and looking forward to making the choice.
