    Okay, so I've been using my Droid Turbo for about a week and a half and finally had to switch back to my Nexus 6P because of this. Is anybody experiencing bad call quality on the Droid Turbo 2. I'm trying to decide if it's worth sending my unit in for replacement or to do a return.
    A little background: I don't use anything on this device that I don't on my 6P. I've used it in multiple different locations ranging from my small home town to multiple different metropolitan areas while I've been traveling. EVERYWHERE I go I've gotten complaints about the call quality on the other end of the phone, I can hear them perfectly fine but I have to repeat something in every single phone call because they can't hear it. Multiple times it's been refereed to as me sounding like I'm underwater.
    Any suggestions or feedback would be much appreciated; I love this device but I lose valuable time having to repeat myself constantly.

    This a tough one, I have not had any issues with the call quality, truthfully it is the best I have ever had when it comes to that, so maybe you have a defect where a replacement would fix it.

    Do you have advanced calling set up?

    I just called someone and it was very clear. You might have a defective device. It happens.

    Call quality is stellar. The placement of the earpiece speaker is much more natural than the off centered one in the OG Turbo.

    The first Turbo had a low volume issue, hopefully that doesn't pop up on 2

    It's disheartening that there are so many various experiences.

    Hello all and the call quality of the Turbo II is excellent. A home run. I have received many compliments OTA.

    Just discovering all of the features of the Turbo II coming from a Droid Bionic (that was still working strong after 4 years by the way) Motorola rules...beware of lurking competitors.

    I'm not sure if it's the same issues that OP is experiencing, but with my DT2, calls on the handset (not speakerphone or bluetooth) act as if they're half-duplex. For example if I'm talking it cuts out the incoming audio of the person I'm listening to. So if we're both talking at the same time I won't hear what they said. I tested with and without advanced calling, with and without case, same thing. I tested with a number with a pre-recorded message and while the pre-recorded message is going, if I say anything it shuts off the incoming audio. Anyone else experience this? I'm out of the 14 day return policy so not looking forward to fighting with Verizon on this one.

    I'm on Verizon and my call quality has been great so far. I think it's even a bit better than my Note 3 was.

    I turned off Advanced Calling because the 4G coverage inside my house is inadequate to maintain it. I'm sure when WiFi calling becomes a Verizon feature, it'll be no problem.

    Advanced calling works on WiFi, and it works great on my turbo 2, now when I am out I have access to optimum WiFi and where I live it is everywhere, but when driving in a car I have to shut off WiFi because when it auto connects it is not strong enough for the phone or texts to work.

    A coworker just got a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and he let me use it, so I placed a call with it it was nowhere clear and loud, compared to the turbo 2,it was a really nice looking phone and the screen looked phenomenal but it just does cut it for practical use, like a phone call.

    Quality on my phone has been poor. Easily worst cell phone I've had in the last 10 years.

    The voice calling (HD voice) feature of Advanced calling works only on LTE (in fact, the technology is VoLTE, or Voice over LTE). If you have no LTE, you can call on CDMA as usual, without HD Voice or simultaneous voice and data. You can use WiFi for video calls on Advanced Calling, but video calls have to be started on LTE and then switched to WiFi - that's the only time that you can use WiFi for AC at the moment. Also, calls started on LTE/Advanced Calling cannot hand off to CDMA when you lose LTE coverage, and calls that start on CDMA cannot hand off to Advanced Calling if you get an LTE signal - it stay on CDMA until the call is complete.

    So, Verizon is adding WiFi calling to Advanced Calling - but, rather than starting with their own brand Droid phones, it's starting on the Galaxy S6 series phones. They did the same thing to the Turbo last year - AC didn't come for many weeks after launch.

    I don't get Verizon sometimes...

    This made sound silly but the mic is in the back of the phone so how you hold your phone might be an issue. Also, if you have a case on the phone double check the mic hole is not some how covered up I know it may sound silly but its worth a check. So far I have not had any issues with call quality.

    The mic for calls is on the front. The one on the back is for noise cancelling.

    My earpiece has been pretty bad. With HD voice off/on and advanced voice off/on. Hopefully the replacement will be better.

    Anyone have an LG 2/3/4 or HTC that they can compare to? I have access to G2 and HTC rezound ( i hear most htcs have good sound) and the Turbo2 is duller and much quiter

    I just ordered my second warranty replacement. I'm soooooooooooooooooooo tired of people telling me they can't hear me or understand me. SPeakerphone works great. Bluetooth works great. But speaking in my phone when using it as a phone sucks. WIll go to Motorola directly if this next replacement is the same. Help!!!
