    Hey guys I've got a turbo 2 with the screen protector I bought at Verizon on it. I don't know if its just my pants, or the screen protector but I have a really bad lint build up on my screen when I take it out of my pocket. I hate to pull the protector off if its going to happen with the original screen as well. Anyone else have this static lint problem? Thanks

    Do you have a tempered glass screen protector? Or a plastic one?

    To be honest I'm not sure, they just threw it on at the store.

    I have the "flexible glass" protector they sell at Verizon and I have the same problem! The lint also gets in the speakers and ear piece. The phone might just be a lint magnet.

    I think it may be the phone and not the protector. With so many openings on the front of the phone, it may just attract a lot of dust and lint.

    I had the lots of lint sticking to the screen also. I think it has something to do with the plastic screen attracting it. I have put on an iVoler glass screen protector and no more lint sticks to the glass.

    Does the iVoler actually stick to the screen? I tried several tempered glass protectors and none would stick to the bottom of the screen.

    Hmm. I didn't notice a lint problem until AFTER I put a screen protector on (VZW flexible glass).

    Also, even though the screen saver went on well, within a couple of days I started getting "water marks" on the bottom of the screen. I attributed that to the fact I didn't have a case on the phone and therefore lint etc. was getting underneath the screen saver when I was taking it in and out of my pockets. Who knows.....

    My iVoler went on great. No lifting at all. I have the 0.2mm.

    I haven't had much of a problem with lint on the screen, but the rest of the phone (including the speakers and ear hole) are like black holes for lint and dust!

    I'm no scientist, but a simple google search seems to indicate that static cling is worse in the winter. Perhaps that's why some of us are noticing more lint now, regardless of what's on the screen (of course, the more openings you have, the more chance you have for things to collect).

    That makes sense.

    Maybe it's just my pants, but I have lint in my pockets year round.

    That's the only thing I do like is the static problem. Other than that the device is awesome.

    Tear up some tiny fragments of paper or get some lint from your clothes dryer's screen and separate it into tiny strands. Spread it out on a flat surface.

    Hold your phone 1/2" to 1" above the lint pile you just made, screen side down. Is the lint/paper drawn to the phone's screen? If yes, then you definitely have a static charge problem.

    Why? Could be your phone's case (if you use one; if you do not, then consider trying one as a means to dissipate the static charge). Could be the material your pants are made from. Could be that the humidity is extremely low in your environment.

    Well all. Sorry to say I had to give up. The lint issue really is a problem for me. Drives me nuts. I'm constantly wiping my phone off. I decided to switch phones. Shame because the turbo is a fantastic device. But I have OCD and like my stuff neat. Best of luck everyone and I hope you enjoy your phones. See you around the forums.

    I switched to the v10. I'm still disappointed I really did like the Turbo 2. So far the V10 is good as well. We will see how it fairs.

    How does the V10 compare to the Turbo 2 in battery life?
