    I had a RazrM too, great "little" phone. I could go two days on a charge. Got it with ICS, went to JB and KK, all went well till the very last KK update, to 4.4.2. Not battery life issues, as by then the phone was already two years old and starting to visibly have shorter time per charge.

    It was more annoying problems, like the screen freezing at random at a 45 degree angle in the middle of a screen rotation.... Only remedy was a complete reboot with the two button "virtual" battery pull.

    Another annoyance was the home screen icons popping up slowly one by one on the wallpaper after I closed the browser. It must have been a RAM issue, as it was worse if I had browsed for a long time, opening multiple tabs or visiting website with lots of pictures.

    Too bad, because other than that I sailed smoothly through all of the OS updates.

    Crossing fingers, so far so good with the Turbo. It got L just few days after I purchased it, so I didn't have it for long enough with KK to say if going to L had significant drawbacks.

    One thing that was annoying at the beginning was all of the system screens background going from black to white.... Now I got used to it.

    I absolutely agree. OS updates simply aren't what they used to be. I'd much rather have a stable device running an earlier OS version than jump on the "must have" bandwagon and be plagued with poor battery life and bugs.
    Simply put....

    It's the latest and greatest society. We need instant gratification and downloading the new OS gives that to some people. I on the other hand buy devices that the manufacturer stops supporting after release cough droid maxx cough.

    I only ever expect 2 updates on a phone. 1 is lame, 3 is a present.

    I don't think so...The droid turbo is nowadays a great phone! If they say that a smartphone is old because of the processor, for example, what's the real difference between a 805 snapdragon and an 820 one? none...I mean in general. They let us believe that a product is obsolete just for economical reasons, but this phone, still in 2016, is a great phone, better than some other blasoned and just put on the market

    Most Phones become obsolete when they are sold. Motorola is the worst at it. Phones are old because of the lack of support they receive from updates, Hello VERIZON I'm looking at you kid.

    Security patches on major vulnerabilities is what I care about. I want my Droid Turbo to not have major security holes. I use my phone for a number of tasks I used to require a laptop for. I'd appreciate just a little more professionalism in getting security holes patched in a timely fashion. It's been 10 months since the multimedia text message remote hack was revealed. Is my phone still vulnerable? Yes. Now, I just read about a snapdragon cpu vulnerability. We need direct Google security patches in a couple of days, not vendor patches that only might appear. Apple actually wins over Android in that respect. And I really hate saying that!

    I know Google is trying to solve the problem, but the pipeline is still way too slow.

    If that's what you "need", a provider controlled phone is not for you. To get monthlies you'll need a Nexus phone.

    The snapdragon vulnerability needs to be direct contact so it's very rare.
    How many people were affected by stage freight? I'd be more concerned with using a computer. It's easier to exploit.

    Agreed. There's an option for you if it's that important to you.
