    I did a video review on the Turbo and thought I'd also do a comparison review to show what's been upgraded from the Maxx.

    Very good comparison. One small detail though, the Maxx did get a red version so there's two colors available.

    Great video. The epocrates demo was a key difference.

    A few niggles: It's true that the Maxx was announced in July 2013, but it wasn't released until late August. Also, the Maxx was released as a 32 GB storage phone, but the new gray and red options are now 16 GB only - the 32 GB version is no longer available. Also, until the OTA that was just released to add VoLTE to the Maxx, passing your hand over the display of the Maxx did, in fact, turn on active display as well. We lost that feature with the OTA last week (I'm sure that was an inadvertent bug.)

    The maxx had the wave over feature? I don't remember that. I'd have been using it all the time if I knew it was there.

    Only when the phone was laying horizontal. If you waved your hand over the prox sensor top left, if the display was dark, active display would immediately show. You couldn't dismiss a call that way, though.

    No worries. I knew I'd have a few small points I'd miss.

    Nice job. If you don't mind me asking, what did you use to record video and audio?

    It doesn't on the new 23.3.24 update we just got, it did before on 21.11.21 (the KitKat 4.4.4 update.)

    See https://forums.motorola.com/posts/fe26ceed34

    Apparently, this "feature" was a bug, based on one of the answers. Still, it had been working that way for a long time.
