    That Droid Razr Maxx HD was a "turd in the punch bowl" of the otherwise fine Droid family. My GF couldn't wait to get rid of hers. Both ours had wifi issues.
    LOL...eeeeeaaaasy there dude. My RMHD is still going strong, had it for 2 years and never had any wifi issues and still get a solid 2 days on a charge. No issues in 2 years. In fact I'm holding off on the Turbo because of the widely reported wifi issues, along with no voice & data, low call volume and so forth. Probably will make the move to the Turbo if they can get some of these issues fixed. The jury is still out.

    I just went up to the store and got the Verizon brand $20 case. It is the same style I had for my Bionic and always reverted back to that case when using normal size battery. The commuters are to slick for my liking, sadly. This one has some grip on it. Fingerprints appear quickly (at least on the black case), but I have no worries about it slipping out of my hands.

    This is the best looking case I have seen for a Droid Turbo and the price is excellent. I think i'm going to order one as soon as i found out whether it will fit the 64gb ballistic nylon version or not.

    Tudia makes excellent cases minus the S5 since it never did fit properly.

    I'm with you, that's why Id love a life proof with a belt clip holster of some sort that can fit around a work belt / duty belt. Seidio used to make them but I'm not holding my breath waiting for them to support this phone.
    Just be careful. The life proof reduces audio. I would guess by 75%. Several people have complained they can't hear me on a call and music is very muffled. I'm gonna keep it for work but I need a clip.

    I love the Diztronic case i have on my S3. It's been awesome. Very low profile... grippy, inexpensive price tag, looks nice and adds hardly any thickness to the phone. Many people like Tudia's cases but have said Diztronic's are better.

    I'm waiting to see when Diztronic posts one also. For less than ten bucks i'll buy both.

    This is not correct. There is a mic in the back and is used for video recording.

    I picked up the black incipio case at Verizon mixed emotions. I really just wanna run it naked?

    Anyone else case it? If so what'd you snag

    I got the Incipio case but it has raised dots on the inner skin which left dimples in my ballistic nylon and slight fray marks.

    I got the black Incipio case as well, and am loving it so far. I haven't noticed any dimples left in the ballistic nylon. The Incipio case certainly adds a bit of thickness, but I actually like the feel of the phone in my hand better with the Incipio case because it's easier to grip. Also, phones have gotten so tall and thin that it feels more natural and sturdy to have a little bit of bulkiness to the phone. The Incipio case certainly does not turn the phone into a brick, it just fits perfectly.

    The tech21 has the both hole cut outs on the back

    It has a silicone feel to it, like it grabs your fingers slightly. I found it to be a much more positive grip. I wanted to go w out a case, but i needed the extra grip.

    I actually found the plain black one a little bit grippier, albeit not as nice looking.

    Someone who's better than I am at identifying electronics parts like microphones might find this video to be helpful:



    In any event, it gives a good overview of what the 64GB unit looks like 'under the hood'. I recall watching a disassembly of a Note4 and the Moto product sure seems like a simpler and more robust build. I wouldn't be averse to replacing the battery in it, if needed.

    I have an Otterbox Defender case on mine and will experiment with the video feature and see if there are any indications of a 'back' mic or problems with the case interfering with it. So far, what little I've done didn't indicate any problems. Good point though.

    Thanks for the update. I'll use the LifeProof when camping / hunting / fishing / kayaking, etc... I'll get a Defender for worksite times and just use the simply Verizon case for everyday use. I'd love a Seidio Obex but I'd probably win the lottery before they made that case, let alone any one, for the Turbo.

    After using the Tech 21 case from Verizon I am thinking of returning it. At $34 it is a little pricey. Also it adds a little much more to the width that I have problems holding the phone with my carpel tunnel syndrome.
    I am hoping for a bumper more I guess. I would love to get a Seidio car with holster but again the added bulk makes it hard to hold workout giant hands

    Sent using my Verizon Turbo charged 64GB Ballistic Nylon phone unfortunately with a case on back

    I don't have a life proof but I read several complaints in it about muffled sound people are reporting. Of you get one let me know. I'm interested but not if it doesn't works.

    Just received it today. It is pretty muffled. Its just not a huge issue for me with my Bluetooth and the fact that I barely make calls. If you're on the phone a lot without a Bluetooth I would say stay away and possibly go with the otter box. There just isn't any opening around the phone speaker like on the iPhone cases. Why they did that I have no idea.

    There are 3 microphones on the back . 2 at the base and 1 near the camera . Look at the Black and Red Kevlar versions . The microphone near the camera is there even on the Balistic nylon version just cant see it .

    Why does the life proof case have waterproof filters for all the microphone openings but nothing for the main speaker and phone speaker? The case just covers it up making already poor volumes downright awful. Poor design if you ask me.

    I have the lifeproof and I cant stand it. It really kills the sound for me by at least 50-75%. On a roadtrip without bluetooth today and tried using speaker. Promptly found a verizon store and now its in the otterbox defender. They told me I would be able to return it to the store I bought it from if I wanted to.
