    I had a Galaxy S5 that I liked...it was pretty rugged to say at least...water wise.
    I need a phone a little rugged due to my job. I'm debating between the Turbo 2 and Maxx 2....or maybe something else? I use Verizon Wireless by the way.


    Any opinions?


    Also for the Turbo 2...is the lifeproof waterproof case good?

    If you're putting it in a Lifeproof case, I don't think it matters which phone you get. Those cases have an excellent reputation. The Maxx 2 and T2 will be well protected in it.
    If you want to go WITHOUT a case, then you get the Turbo 2.

    If you do not need a new device now, I would wait for the S7 release in March.

    Recommending a phone to another person is always a tough thing to do, we all have different likes and dislikes. Each new phone does not always make everyone happy....unless you are an iPhone fan. What I personally do disagree with is...wait for the Galaxy S7 recommendations. Nothing wrong with Samsung, I own one, and they make great phones. But there is nothing wrong with the Turbo 2 either, I own 2 of them and they are great phones also! You have to buy what you like, regardless of what we think. But if you truly like the Turbo 2, and like Moto's version of Android, I don't think you would be disappointed. If you prefer Samsung, and their version of Android, then you should wait. Just my two cents (or no sense).

    I'd wait until March...you'll have a ton of new devices to choose from..and the t2 will be pretty cheap then .

    I would wait unless you're in a hurry and this is from a Turbo 2 fan. We don't really know what the S7 will be yet. Personally, I'm not a Sammy fan, but since you are...

    Everyone likes what they like. I had the RAZR then went to the S4 now this T2. Always liked Motos better but I did love the colors from Samsung and I miss little things like clearing all tabs at once and easier settings mode Samsung offers.

    Well the Samsung S7 has been released with specs.......looks pretty close to the Turbo 2 I think but I'm not big into knowing the difference in them.

    Any suggestions since the released details of the Samsung S7? More than likely I would get the S7 edge...but I'm still undecided between it and the Turbo 2 SINCE the battery is a little bigger and camera is better...

    The best bet would be to see each one in person in a store.

    It's so hard to recommend a phone bases on specs alone...unless you just want a phone that has great specs and don't care about how it looks, feels in your hand, the UI, etc. Almost everyone here will recommend a Samsung over anything else; they do make great phones and sell a ton of them. That's why I say to check them out side by side in a store and pick the one you like best. Good luck, both are great phones & I doubt you will go wrong with either one.
