    I guess I will be the first to post here. I just spent a few hours at my local Verizon store and then on the phone with VZW sales. I just ordered 2 custom designed Droid Turbo 2 phones from the Moto Maker website; one for me and one for the wife. I took advantage of their Black Friday sales and an additional $100 off coupon sent to me from VZW. Phones should be here NLT 11 December, but I expect that is a worst case estimate. Will post back again when we get them and my initial impression.

    Just picked mine up. On day 5 so far and it hasn't frozen up and coming from the Droid Maxx I love that Moto put the micro SD card slot back in their phones

    Day late and dollar short. Would have loved to make the jump. Maybe I'll get on the the phone with support tomorrow and see what kind of deal I can work out.

    All right I'll jump in. I'm on week 2 with my Turbo 2. I'm coming off a 3 year run of Samsung phones. First, I have no intention of testing the shatterproof claims, I'll leave that to the you tubers. Personally I loved my Samsungs, but got tired of looking for a charger at dinner time.
    My impressions of the T2 are pretty positive. I can't kill the battery in a day, but I doubt I'd make the purported 48 hours. The feel of the soft grip is much better than the back of my S5 and I really like the gold frame. The bezels are large, some may find that unattractive. I don't really have an opinion. The lack of a second speaker has been criticized, but stereo speakers that close together may as well be 1 speaker. The volume is good.
    IMO the Sammy"s software is better. I miss the "close all" command in the recent apps screen and the task manager. I also really miss the ability to hide apps, make the screen smaller, and take a screen shot by waving over the screen. That being said, the ability to turn on the flashlight by shaking the phone is cool.
    Overall I would trade my S5 for the T2 again. If I could have gotten 20 or more hours out of the Samsung it would have been a much harder choice.

    If anyone is thinking of a T2 and has questions, I'll follow this thread, and like most people on this forum will answer if I can.

    I did, back in August. And I love it, it is a great phone. But $300 off a new one, custom designed on Moto Maker is hard to pass up. Sure, I had to sign up for monthly payments to get the deal, and change my plan. But I can sell my current phone and pay off the balance of the new one and still save over $60 a month on my bill. Not a tough decision in my mind.

    OK so VZW has the Turbo 2 today for 50% off.
    Only $480 for the 32GB. Wait... $480 is 50% off? So the T2 is $960 retail??
    And people think the Priv is expensive??

    //edit// NVM. That's if you trade in an existing device...

    So could I trade in my T1 mid-contract? Probably not, eh? lol
