    I am torn between, the note 4, nexus 6 or the Turbo.
    I had a maxx, was a good phone but good luck trying to find any accessories for the phone.. I'm not big on cases but I do like my glass screen protector.. It was impossible to find one for the Maxx even 6 months after it dropped... My other minor issues, camera wasn't great and I can't tell u how many effin time when texting and trying to hit the space bar I hit the Damn home or back button whichever it was... I'm leaning toward the note, my fear is the release date... Hell, Verizon has zero sense of urgency releasing phones, I'm not waiting 2 more months..

    I'm betting we'll see more accessories for the Turbo than there were for the Maxx. The Ultra had more to begin with, and this year there (supposedly) won't be 3 Droids to divide the accessories market. You'll probably see more OEMs devote resources to it as a consequence.

    Motorola's site also sold a handful of accessories including cases and screen protectors. I don't usually use a screen protector or case but on my current Maxx I'm using the bumper case.

    I agree, the camera wasn't great but I did get decent shots from it. If the camera is even a little better, it's a win as the rest of the specs are top shelf!

    After having a Maxx for the past year with Always Listening touchless controls I can't see ever not having it, if I have a choice.

    He's looking for the tempered glass ones. Nobody made one for the Maxx.

    Just one more example where the Maxx gets no love or recognition from the cell phone community

    My screen would look much nicer if one had ever existed. This Gorilla Glass stuff isn't all its cracked up to be as shown in the vids where people aggressively scrape it with keys, knives, screwdrivers, etc. I think that I baby my phone, am careful how I put it in my pocket and where I set it in general and the screen has several decent sized scratches on it. I don't like the more plasticy feeling screen protectors. They were fine on my BB where I never had to touch the screen, but the coefficient of friction just isn't the same on these screens where I have to slide my finger around. And the ones Verizon sells/pushes are complete crap.

    There are lots of great screen protectors out there. The VZ ones are always crud. Steinheil, iSmooth, Boxwave, etc., all make excellent thin film. Tempered glass adds bulk and weight for not much more security. IMO, anyway.

    I'll have to check some out after I get the Turbo. Until recently I didn't know there was much past the somewhat rubbery feeling Zag protectors and the crap Verizon ones.

    That's the one thing that would hold me back from a Turbo. I want a Tempered Glass protector and I will not settle for cheap plastic. Verizon needs to make their own branded protectors since I doubt no one else will.

    I've used Steinheil and iSmooth and they were better than most plastic films. However, comparing them to Glass there is no competition. Glass may be thicker but its 9H compared to around 3H hardness which means its more resistant to scratches. It feels 100x better, less finger prints/easier to clean, much clearer, no rainbow effect and is likely to last the life of your device. Also, it provides shock protection where as the plastic doesn't.

    Not even close. I'll never use plastic again and I also won't go naked after my Note 2 scratched for no reason at all.

    Hence the reason I'll probably go Note 4. I know Spigen will make glass protection for the Note 4. The Turbo will not get this love... Is a problem buying a provider exclusive phone.... Yup, specs rock but that's all irrelevant if u can't protect your investment.

    It remains to be seen if the Turbo line is a carrier exclusive. Lots of talk about a Moto Turbo available on other providers & if true, there will be plenty of after-party options available. That said, my original Maxx still looks like the day I bought it with hard, everyday life with a naked screen.

    You got that right what I bought my max I bought some of the Verizon screen protectors and they were totally crap. After about 3 or 4 days I ripped it off the max and have been naked ever since. I do have a full protective case that sits on your belt and is in the category of an otterbox I don't mind the case it sure has kept my max looking like new it is sure going to pay off what I sell the Droid Maxx to buy the Droid turbo. Quite honestly my droid Maxx looks brand new.

    Carrier exclusives will always have less accessories.
