    HTC has offered screen replacements on the M8 I believe. Google did something similar with the N5

    I'll probably be using a family members upgrade (separate account). I wonder if Verizon will still replace the screen or if that nullifies the warranty?

    I have a feeling the most hate will come from Moto X 2014 early adopters and N6 "whale" riders.

    Absolute dream phone. The 64gb option surprised me in the absolute best way possible. FLAC for days!

    Now I'm contemplating whether the 1 screen replacement is enough or if I should go with a SquareTrade warranty...
    Flac? No clue on this acronym..
    Fear and loathing android central?

    Oh I see, didn't know about that. Hm, I bet Verizon will be making a huge deal about this though.

    EDIT: FLAC is a lossless audio file. Takes up considerably more space than an mp3.

    Free Lossless Audio Codec. I have a lot of music in lossless audio formats that I play with PowerAmp. They take up about 25mb instead of 6mb of MP3's. I thought I was going to just transition to Google Play Music but looks like I don't need to!

    When I work out the gym has crappy reception and when I fly I obviously don't have reception so having my music on hand at any time is a big boon!

    Honestly, they have nobody to blame but themselves. Especially the Moto X buyers.

    What kind of earbuds or BT you like with FLAC? I've never used lossless, but I've been pretty happy with the APT-X support of my Droid Razr M along with my Moto Buds and my Pioneer BT car stereo.

    When I workout I just use the ones included with the One M7 which are surprisingly good. Leisurely I have Ultimate Ear Triple Fi Pros that I got molded into a custom ear design (highly reccomend!) If I'm at a swim meet competing I'll use my Audio Technica M50's which are, again, phenomenal for the price.

    In terms of audio, hopefully this will be unlocked soon and I can get ViperFX on it

    Has anyone seen if there is a notification LED? Kind of a minor detail but I'll be pretty disappointed if it doesn't have one.

    I think it's silly that many reviewers immediately compare the Turbo to the new Moto X and focus on it's aesthetic shortcomings but (intentionally) overlook all the technological horsepower and advanced features right under the Turbo's hood. It might be a beast, but it's a beast that runs circles around the X in every way...fit nicely into a very similar form factor.

    Don't think it has one. The user manual leaked awhile back and I thought that was discussed.

    599 for the base, so probably 649 for the 64.

    Also the ballistic nylon is starting to look a lot more attractive in the videos. And why do the BN versions omit the Verizon logos? Kinda strange. But I'll take it.

    On the Verizon page Droid Turbo - Verizon Wireless the ballistic nylon versions still have the Verizon logo

    Yeah that's why it's strange. Personally i don't mind the logos. But you'd think the handsets in the conference would be the final build. So who knows what to expect when you buy it.

    This is what prefaced the replacement line. "Next up, materials. Motorola says that $13 billion was spent by consumers last year on damaged phones."

    I guess they're just trying to one up the competition on this. Unless someone has done screen replacements before? I'm sure the price includes some pro-rated screen replacement charge in it, but it's still a fairly modest price I believe.
    HTC had been doing it since they introduced the M8 but only for the first six months.

    I thought the '13 Moto maker x's had one free screen replacement too.

    I see, I guess the screen replacement is nothing new then. I hadn't heard at all about those offers. Still, it's pretty nice to have regardless.

    With the moto apps u don't need an led light. They haven't had them for awhile either so shouldn't be a surprise.

    No. Last year's maxx and ultra (and the moto x) didn't have one. With active display, they didn't need one. I wondered myself when I bought the maxx last year and I didn't miss it at all.
