    I was wondering that since Motorola put a big emphasis on the new turbo charging, will the phone come with a wall brick out of the box that does this? I had to buy this separately last year for the 2014 model. I'm about to put my 2014 up on Ebay and wondering if I should include my current turbo charger to up the value.

    Not sure about the turbo charger, but use Swappa. Swappa costs $10 + paypal fees. Ebay costs 10% + paypal fees. Same seller protections through Paypal (get a signature confirmation and you're all set).

    If it was me i would keep it, but thats just my opinion. Don't know if it would raise the value enough to actually make a difference. You can always list "also have turbo charger for x amount more" and just see.

    they didn't mention if the turbo charger will be included, but for some reason I have a feeling it will be. If it were me is include it. It'll ensure a quick sale and worse case scenario you'll be out a few bucks but the good deed will bring some good karma. Def do Swappa instead of eBay though.

    The old Turbo Charger was the "TurboPower 15" the new one comes with the "TurboCharger 25." The old one is still good, but the new one is better.

    I assume the Turbocharger 25 puts out 25W like the 15 puts out 15W. The question is will the 2014 2.0 QC phones accept the 25W charging rate?

    If they don't include one with the phone, I wonder if they'll justify it by pointing out the phone's $399.99 starting price.

    I'd love to see them include it, but I can't blame em of they choose not to. they'll justify by saying they could've included it and charged $425 to start, or just not include it and let the consumer decide whether they want one or not .... I think that's fair, but I think it'd be a smart move if they don't include it, to maybe give a discount if you buy within 30 days or something like that

    I could see it being an add-on through Moto Maker if it's not included by default. It would be cool of them if they provided a discount if ordered at the same time or soon after.

    The Nexus 6 also starts at $600 retail (IIRC)? -- So it may not. If not they will just charge $25 or so for it -- I would still be willing to pay for it.

    You also have to consider the fact that fast charging is becoming more common now and with all modern high end chips supporting fast charging most manufacturers will start shipping the charger along with it. Last year it was not the case, anyway we can only speculate until the phone releases.

    Like Kenny mentions... the X comes in at a significantly lower price too...

    Just because a phone has a feature doesn't mean it will include everything in the box. What phones come with Qi wireless chargers?

    Yeah, but that phone is retailing for $450 now.

    Either way, Since this phone is so cheap, he shouldn't have too big of a problem buying his own.

    Oh I definitely agree it is becoming more standard but seeing as how the Nexus 6 is more expensive it makes sense to toss in some incentives. IIRC the Moto X 2014 didn't come with it and still doesn't.

    I am not saying I hope it doesn't ... I definitely do. That would rule haha . I am just saying if not I wouldn't be surprised.

    I don't see what that has to do with talking about a Samsung product and relating it to a Motorola product to say they will have the same things in the box ^_^.

    As noted on Motorola's website on the Style/US Pure edition,
    Charger sold separately in some markets.
    So that's about as clear as mud. Gonna side with the "hope it does, won't be surprised if it doesn't" crowd on this one.

    Quality after market 2.0 cert. chargers are only about $15. Free is good, but I'm not going to get bent out of shape over a $15 accessory on a $450 purchase.

    I picked up an Anker for $9 on Amazon on sale.
