    The only quirk I've found (thus far) is the camera.

    Sure, still shots come out great, but Odin help me if I want to take a picture of something moving (such as my son). That delay is REALLY bad. I'm 97% sure it's a software issue, so I'm hoping that Motorola addresses it, perhaps when they release 5.0?

    Other than that, I'm worried about the nylon on the back (64GB Turbo here!) is going to fray over time.

    Powered off overnight after running the battery down and left it on the turbo charger for the night. All seems good today, from 6:30-2:00 I'm still at 88%. I'm thinking the glitch may have been caused by the wireless charger...possibly not lined up right? Haven't tried it since, but will go back to wireless charging this weekend.
    I've had the exact same problem as you. Charged over night on the wireless charger, next day 98% for 13 hours. Today It dropped to 49% after 6.5hrs, then turned off. I plugged into the turbo charger, in literally 3 minutes, 100%. I'll be trying the off charge tonight, via turbo charger. Has your Turbo gone back to normal? Think the wireless charging was the problem?

    Yesterday active notifications weren't displaying properly in the car. Normally hit a bump and flashes with time but a few instances it lit up with distorted lines across the area. Hitting power button showed lock screen correctly.

    I have the droid turbo and when I try to use beats by dre headphones, only the left side works. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Hold the power button and volume down button to take a screen shot. The contact in the top left is yourself. Sort of like an ID badge I guess. It shows my google+ picture and says my name on mine.

    I so far love the droid turbo, coming from the Razr maxx HD, its a good phone. One issue I've had is that the capacitive lights are either not fully lit or parts of them are not lit. I had my first turbo for a while and noticed that the third buttons top right corner was dimmer than the rest of the button when it would light up. So I took it in for a replacement phone. I looked at it and it looked fine to me and went ahead and stuck with it, till I looked at it when I got home in the dark and the go back button was have bright and half dim, and comparing the home button to the multitasking button, the multitasking button is completely dim.


    Now you may think that this isn't a big issue considering the buttons work, but I bought the phone out right because I still have unlimited data so it bothers me if the buttons don't all look exactly the same.

    I turned the phone off so that ongoing phone processes and applications wouldn't interfere with or slow the charge, but as soon as I plugged it in, it turned the phone back on. Then, while still plugged in and charging, I turned it off again, and it turned right back on. Can this phone not charge while off? Seems strange, but maybe I don't really need to worry about it? I just like to turn it off sometimes if I'm traveling or not using it or just want it to be able to take a breather. Thoughts? Thanks!
    I'm actually having this happen too. Just wondering if it's a normal thing or if something is faulty. When the phone turns back on it has tons of bloatware/VZW bull in the background on startup that is driving me mad, and sapping the battery to boot.

    Open the app drawer, find those bloatware apps. Drag them like you are going to put them on a home screen, but instead drag them to the top of the screen, where it says "app info". For almost all of those apps, there should be a disable button - hit it and those apps will disappear from the app drawer and will no longer start up when you restart the phone.

    (Or you can go into settings / apps, slide to all, and do the same thing there...)

    Firedogee or anyone with the Ballistic Nylon back :

    How is the back holding up as far as any fraying of material is concerned? Any areas that look to potentially start to unravel ?
    I'm seeing a little fraying around the camera lens and the flashes. Minute but it's there. Ordered a Naked Case which is on its way; hope that'll nip it in the bud.

    Yes that is how you take a screen shot with the turbo.
    The only thing I have found is when you push the home button while in an app it goes back to the previous screen and you have to push again to get to home screen. I also can't find HD calling that is supposed to be on the phone. I had it working on the MAXX>
    HD Calling will be available on the next update rollout. We're (Verizon) not sure when it's going to come out, Motorola has yet to release the date to us, but we do know that it's coming soon!

    I don't think voice privacy has anything to do with volume, it is encryption to the cell tower.
    Well, I'll put it this way, it tremendously gave me louder speakerphone performance when switched off. Not to argue, but IMO 1+1= 2 here. lol. This was also one of the advised fixes from the peeps here. It also made my handset's earpiece volume increase.
    Interestingly enough, it seems to have made a better broadcast signal to a friend of mine who says he can hear me much better now on the same phone he's been using all along when I use the speakerphone...go figure.

    I bought the 1st 64 gb BN Turbo at my store on 10/30, I don't use cases or protective screens, phone goes in my front pants pocket with screen facing my leg. I also have a tight spring clip mount in the car. I returned it 2 weeks ago because of loud feedback others heard when I spoke on phone. The first phone nor the current one show any sign of fray or wear at all on ballistic nylon, still looks new.

    I forgot to put the phone on the charger when I went to bed last night and I was at 35%. I woke up and it was at 16% I put it on the turbo charger and woke up exactly 2 hours later and it was at 100%. I really have no complaint about the life of the battery, it last me all day and into the night. Most nights I have 45% left when I go to bed. What is funny is I realized I was starting to freak out when my battery go to 45% after 16 or more hours. That's when I said to my self duh you still got 12 or 14 hours of battery left. I used to be happy if my phone still had any charge when I went to bed. Go figure.

    I also had problems with loud feedback when speaking on phone, it was true on phone speaker mode and bluetooth over the car stereo, the only fix was to go to handset mode which is less than ideal with a hands-free phone driving state law. It was not consistent, could not recreate at will. The fix was to return for replacement after 2 weeks. It happened once on new phone about a week ago, may have been fluke but just took advice of 1blinkgone implementing both his suggestions anyway.

    INCREDIBLE battery and power management, I use my phone heavily. GPS, WiFi, & bluetooth always on yet I finish 16 hour days with 20-50% battery left. No longer need to plug in at every opportunity, just when I go to bed.

    I have a question. My phone goes blank. I'll push the on/off button to try to get the display back but it takes constant pushing of the button to come back on. I'm wondering if I should take it in to get checked out or am I doing something wrong.

    I wouldn't say that you are doing anything wrong. It could be a problem with an app running in the background taking too many processor cycles. You can go into settings / battery usage and look at the list of items, and any apps that you recognize (usually display, Android System, and Android OS are listed toward the top of the list) may be the culprit.

    Another idea is to run in safe mode, which stops third party apps from starting with the phone. Long-press power to bring up the power off menu, then long press "power off" to bring up the choice to restart in safe mode. If you see the same problem in safe mode, then I'd suspect that it's a hardware problem.

    I upgraded from a GS3 and I'm loving my Turbo. Unfortunately it seems I received a lemon. My power/screen lock button is no longer operable.. I wouldn't be able to turn my phone on if it happened to die. Thankfully VZ is replacing it for free. Hopefully I'll have better luck when the new one arrives.

    I was concerned about visual voicemail being a subscription service and tried to decline the set up. Turns out Basic Visual Voicemail is the default and free. Takes a bit to get used to....but I'm starting to like it!

    We have the Droid Turbo 32gig. It has locked up with a blank screen. Had to turn off to reset. Trying to figure out how to put music from the laptop to the phone. No software found. Thinking this phone is to new. Plugged into laptop the only option is updating. No access to device. No device manager. My big thing is not having data while in a call.

    I have always uninstalled it (you can do that on windows phone, this is my first dabble into android) I never realized it was a freemium service and the free version is adequate for me.
