    Just decide on what features are most important to you. No phone does everything. You'll drive yourself nuts if you keep exchanging them. Just remember, when you do decide on one, the new feeling about it will disappear. It doesn't mean you've made the wrong decision. It's just human nature to want the new shiny thing. By the way, I'm speaking from experience. Amazon are sick of me returning phones!

    I went Note 4, but strongly considered the Turbo. At the time the Turbo had not been out long and I needed a phone that day. There were concerns off the bat about turbo on call quality and camera quality. I would have loved a more stock experience though. Not disapointed in the note 4 after changing the animation speed and the launcher.

    New Droid Turbo owner here, I come in peace! I did a ton of research and it came down to these two, which I believe are the two best phones overall.

    The biggest selling points of the Turbo over Note 4 for me were the form factor (ie, I preferred its size and feel), near-stock Android, Moto Voice/Assist/Actions/Display, battery (though the Note 4's is impressive too), Qi charging, and Motorola's reputation for its build quality and quick updates (EDIT: not a fanboy, as I realize this may not always hold true).

    The main distinguishing features about the Note 4 were not quite as important to me, though are really nice: screen size, multitasking, S-Pen, and a much better camera.

    It certainly wasn't an easy decision because the Note 4 is amazing as well. Both of our phones have many similar specs that destroy pretty much everyone else right now except for the Nexus 6, which I think is a bit overrated.
    And you go in pieces .... Just kidding always wanted to say that...

    That's an objective way to look at things, if only everybody were like this. Forums would be peaceful and probably boring . Ah well, we can't always have it all can we?

    I also wish that reviewers could also be more objective also. There certainly are some legit criticisms of the Droid Turbo, arguably more than for the Note 4, but I don't believe that saying "it's ugly", for example, should be one that's been cited on tech websites routinely. I understand if reviewers want to say that it's not as sleek and it's thicker/heavier than most and such. But really subjective stuff based purely off of looks, of which there is no objective standard at all, I think is less than professional.

    It's a different story on forums, where obviously a wide range of personal opinions are fair game. All of these different opinions definitely makes it more interesting, if not peaceful!

    I couldn't deal with the no data and voice at the same time.... That's a deal breaker for me

    ^^ Yes, that's one of the legit criticisms of the Droid Turbo, though a VoLTE update that will enable simultaneous voice/data has been announced for this month. My understanding is that it will be enabled if talking to someone on VZW, or AT&T by next year, but not landlines or other networks.

    If it's not 100% covered why would they get rid of the old way when it worked?

    BlackBerry Q10. Actually had this since October '13. Longest I've ever kept a phone. I just keep getting bored with it and think if I find something else I really like...
    Hate to say this but if less then 2 months is the longest you have keep a phone, than you have phone issues.

    Sorry thought you had wrote Oct '14. Guess I need to learn to read.

    ^^ VZW is finally getting rid of CDMA and transitioning to VoLTE, which will become the standard in a few years. The dual-antenna set up that was needed for simultaneous voice/data (since CDMA itself isn't capable) is gone from the Droid Turbo and Moto X.

    Why get rid of the CDMA antenna entirely at this point? Dunno, but my guess is cost-benefit. They could be thinking that the additional antenna wouldn't be used much on VZW after VoLTE is enabled this month, since their 4g network overlaps with most of their 3g at this point. So nixing the antenna cuts costs, while also saving some space in this already thick phone with its massive battery.

    For what it's worth, though it doesn't even out the negatives, the plus side of a single antenna is that it helps a bit with battery life and SAR rating (if anyone cares).

    Alright thanks. I just wish the note 4 was stock android and then it would be the perfect phone.

    That would ruin the best phone on the market right now. I don't understand wanting the phone with the most bells and whistles and then wanting to strip it down? Just buy the nexus.

    Yeah I am curious how it'll work. I hope it works like T-Mobiles VoLTE where if my device can do it .. And the tower I'm on supports VoLTE.. It'll work. Regardless of the other persons carrier or phone (even landlines). The only thing that needs T-Mobile to T-Mobile is HD voice.
