    Anyone else excited for the event on Tuesday? I will be following closely as I am presently looking for an upgrade with my iphone 5, I am leaning towards the turbo or turbo 2, depending on what it announces.. I wonder what the new contract price will be for it? Do you think itll be like an s6 price around 199 or closer to 100?

    Anything you'd like it to have?

    Lets see what Tuesday brings!

    That's an interesting question. I know that ig you are on contract you can do one more contract upgrade, but I wonder if Verizon will even mention the contract price at all? They want everybody either buying on Edge or buying outright going forward.

    I think that Verizon knows that they have a subset of users who will pay extra for the Droid brand, particularly for the battery life, so I suspect that the Turbo 2 will be priced at a premium and the Maxx 2, with lower specs, will be priced more mid-range. That's my guess - Turbo 2 starting at $199, Maxx 2 starting at $99, but the real story will be Edge pricing.

    Excited? No. Interested? Yes.

    Is Verizon still doing contract pricing? If so, I'd guess it would be around $199 with some kind of a rebate or a special "limited time offer", where you could get it for $99.

    Based on rumors, it won't be far off, but maybe the Turbo 3 will check all the boxes!

    Marshmallow "soon"? It can't be worse than lollipop was, I guess. (Or can it?)

    I'm glad to see no capacitive buttons. Not that I mind them much, but that's one more thing that they have to engineer for that's different from standard Android. The fewer the difference, the easier it should be to get updates done.

    Lollipop ruined my perfectly-operating Moto X. I'm in no hurry for any update on my new Turbo!

    Pricing looks to be $576 for the 64 GB model (less expensive than I expected). 5.9" by 3.07" (too big imo).

    Oh, that's right, android central messes up Verizon links. So, go to verizonwireless.com and add the following to the end:

    so the battery of the turbo 2 is acutally less then the 1 at 3760,the one has 3900// is fast charging going t o be a big enough deal to trump the size?

    That's such a small battery difference. It could be that the turbo 2 is more efficient than the Turbo.
