    Should I? I like having a removable storage and battery. So that's a plus. Also the 21mp camera. Verizon has a deal going on where they will give a $200 credit for a trade in on the Turbo 2 so I'm thinking about it. What do yall think?

    If you think you can overcome the no LED notifications and would like the MOTO actions, do it.
    I noticed the battery is good when im not doing graphic intensive stuff like games. When gaming it sucks it up pretty quickly

    So there is no led notification with the Turbo 2? That's weird but not sure if I would miss it or not.

    If you do, keep your note 4 as backup and find a crappy smartphone that turns on. They will take ANY smartphone

    I upgraded from the Note 2. I had long quit using any of the Samsung special features and wanted a closer to stock Android UI.

    I've always been a removable battery guy but with my current lifestyle I never need the extra battery so I am living without that feature with no problems. The battery life on this phone while not 48 hours is easily 18 hours. I use my tablet for any mobile gaming I do.

    Before you give up your Note 4 for trade in remember they will take any working smartphone. I traded in an old LG Revolution.

    If I did find something that didn't work. Does that Metter when I trade it in? Obviously my note 4 would still be activated

    It just has to power on. A cracked screen is fine for the trade in as long as the display shows something.

    I'm not 100% sure, maybe others can confirm, but I believe you can buy really cheap android phones for prepaid carriers like tracfone at target or Walmart - like 50 to 75 dollars - and use those to trade in.

    You are right, I asked at one store and any smartphone is fine. I've seen them for $10 on sale.

    I traded in a $10 tracphone I bought at best buy and received $200 for it. Verizon doesn't care as long as it powers up.

    Make sure to add the promo code UPGRADE. Get additional $100 off. When I got mine the guy from Verizon said that it end's this month though. Don't know where your located I have a cracked screen droid maxx you can have. Also like someone said before try a goodwill or a thrift store. Just make sure the phone can power up.

    If you are coming from the Note 4, you won't be disappointed in battery life. If you're coming from the Maxx or original Turbo, you likely will.

    I upgraded to the turbo 2 from the note 3. At first I missed the led for a few days but I like the Moto notification system better. Battery life is better then my note 3. I had some issues at first but now I am happy with it. I am glad I made the switch.

    The Droid Turbo 2 is worth $325. It's not worth $525 or $625. If you have to pay anywhere near full price then look elsewhere.

    I would say I would pay the same price for the turbo 2 as I would for a Samsung Galaxy phone why because everything works and the radios and battery life are far superior to Samsung and I did not have to tone down touchwiz to accomplish it

    I am a big fan of both the moto droids and the samsung note line.

    Like i have said before they are two very different animals though.

    I love the s pen and touchwiz has got better, i actually like it. If you are wanting to feel a close to stock Android experience i say you cant go wrong w the turbo 2. Yes there is some bloat tou have to disable, but the moto actions and moto display is second to none in my opinion, and battery life is great.

    Sent with my white Note5 with nonremovable back and no SDcard!
