    Not to be "that guy" but front facing speakers i would compare to wireless charging. At the end of the day you really don't need them but you will know when you don't have them. When on break I'll watch miss shows (ie GOT) in my car. With Bluetooth sometimes the sound doesn't line up with the lips/action when i use bt headphones. I'll just listen to the action and those front facing speakers bring the book.

    Every now and then I'll have a speaker battle and i love drowning out other phones (ie iPhone). Other times i would use my front facing speakers would be when i just want to listen to music or podcast in the house and i can hear the Nexus like i would a radio in the center of the room.

    I want better speakers. Front facers are much louder. I listen to the news in the shower every morning and can barely hear my Turbo 2 over the shower even putting it in the medicine cabinet so the sound ricochets out. Anyone who's ever had to cup their hand around a phone so someone else can hear something playing knows what I mean.

    I'm not a big head phone guy. I will use the adapter when I need headphones on my Z2. Having said that, I think the annoying part of BT headphones is having to charge them.

    And of course we are 100% sure that BT is safe, right? Nothing like having little radio transmitters in your ears. But it's safe. Right? RIGHT?

    I have never been impressed with speakers on a phone. I either need to send it to a bluetooth speaker or head set. so to me, it makes no difference if they are on the back, side or front.

    There are only a handful of folks left around here that are Moto users, or appreciate Moto phones. It's become all about Samsung.

    whats a moto :p The only reason I don't consider one is they do not seem to want to go all out for their flagship model.

    I loved my Moto Nexus 6.. One of my all time favorites even if it was a little bit wide in hand..
    I'd like to try a Motorola phone again but i will wait till next design choice..
