I'm so far liking the Turbo. No SD slot isn't a big deal with cloud storage, portable wireless storage and such. I carry the RavPower wireless Filehub which gives wireless Wi-Fi portable unlimited cloud storage and doubles as a backup battery. The screen specs are off the charts as is the camera. 3GB is great, a 50% improvement in RAM will have to translate into at least 10-15% improvement in performance. I do love the Moto X performance and features. Maybe they'll bring them over to the Turbo. Just waiting to see what the Nexus brings to the table. I'll make my decision then. For now, Turbo has my vote.
