    It's been a wonderful two years, and my Turbo is the best phone I've ever had. But alas, I ordered my Pixel yesterday afternoon. XL 128 GB black model, which should be back in stock right before the Pixel 4 is announced. ;-)

    I wouldn't be upgrading now if it weren't for the charging issues. The battery as been one of the phone's best attributes since Day 1, but it's getting down to 10% or less at the end of my day. My routine has long been to charge overnight, play around with it in the morning before work, and then "top-off" charge it while I'm in the shower so I walk out the door with 100%. For a long time now I've had it happen where that top-off charge won't work. I'll plug in the phone and it won't charge (happens with the phone turned off too). Or it'll tell me to use the charge that originally came with the phone .. which is exactly what I'm doing.

    So it's just time now.

    I just switched to the pixel xl yesterday... But only 32GB. I typically have buyer's remorse but I was tired of the buggy lollipop issues. My wife's biggest complaint was that I typically had to call back or call twice since my microphone wouldn't work initially in most calls. There were a few other issues too but nothing that isn't common or stood out.

    Lack of updates kept me from the z series.

    My wife hates technology with a passion and was very certain she couldn't deal with change. Well, after years of being a Samsung customer she's very impressed.

    This phone isn't the kitchen sink approach but I appreciate the "it just works" approach that's so alluring. The fact that we can go to ubuyifixit for repairs has almost solidified my decision to get rid of insurance too.

    I'm going to miss my droid turbo... But I'm so glad I upgraded. Your going to love it! I am second guessing the size though and may look at moving to the pixel instead

    Can't be too big for me. ;-) If it weren't for bad timing two years ago I would have had the Nexus 6 instead of the Turbo here and might have been the only one who didn't complain about the size. ;-)

    How's bluetooth working for you with the XL? Disturbed to see that the update that Google released may not have done the trick ...

    I'm having the same issue. Ordered the 128gig Pixel XL, but might not wait until the reported. Dec delivery. Turbos battery has been losing it at the top end and bottom end of a charge. Drops 10% quickly at the beginning and end of each cycle.

    I am sticking with droid turbo until I see the galaxy S8. Pixel doesn't motivate me, not buying S7 with S8 fast approaching... LG V20 with cracked camera lenses all over the place... No thank you.

    Note 7 was what I wanted... Had there been no problems I would have upgraded first day after my two year droid turbo contract ended.

    I was in this camp as well. I was going to give Samsung Note 7 a try, after three Moto devices.

    Now I'm going to wait until Turbo 3 or Galaxy S8. Cajun_Mike, would the Turbo 3 pique your interest?

    I checked out the Pixel XL in the store, and it's a very nice device, kind of choking on the price however. My son is going to get one.

    No, I am done with Motorola because of poor camera quality
    I vowed that I wouldn't accept barely average photos and videos in my next phone. It's either Galaxy S8, whatever the 2017 Note ends up being or iPhone 8plus (never owned an iPhone). Maybe HTC 11 if they get waterproofing and a slightly better camera. Heck.. This Droid turbo is keeping me going so well, I might be able to wait until Pixel 2. ;-)

    The new Moto Z Force has a highly rated camera. They've got new software and a new low light sensor, and OIS. It's getting good reviews and the AC forum has some good discussion, particularly a thread where a knowledgeable poster had both a Pixel XL and a Z Force and posted identical photos side-by-side. I presume the Turbo 3 will have an even better camera.

    I'm leery of Samsung TouchLag, er, I mean TouchWiz. I've read plenty of posts from people that returned their Note 7 for a Z Force and they are in love with it. I would never be put in Apple's proprietary prison, so they are out as a possibility.

    Rumored device. Or whatever will succeed the Z Force.

    There was a "leak" of a supposed mock up of the Turbo 3 a few weeks ago. Who knows if it is real or not.

    We know that it was a made-up concept by someone who regularly does this. It's not real at all.

    Shame, then, that it's in no way real.

    I'm loving the thought of it .. and the brief visitation I get with one every time I stop by a Verizon store. But I've yet to be granted custody. ;-) Verizon shows an expected ship date of 12/2, so we'll have to see ...

    I ordered a Pixel XL 128GB from Verizon awhile back, and it in theory is going to ship tomorrow two-day. Tom Petty was and is completely and 100% right: waiting is indeed the hardest part.

    After I stick the screen protector on it it will be a busy busy weekend getting this thing set up. Looking forward to finally getting my "forever" (for the next two years, anyway) phone LOL...

    That's fan boys justifying their purchases. No reputable reviewer has the moto z camera quality in the same range as Samsung, Apple, LG, Pixel or even HTC.

    And by the way. I love my Droid Turbo.. Best phone I've ever owned. Just done with accepting second class photos and video. No waterproofing.. Etc

    DxOMark did. The Z Force is 87 - one behind the S7 Edge and HTC 10, two behind the Pixels, and one ahead of the iPhone 7 and 7+ and LG G5.

    (I'm not a fan boy; I don't own one myself, and don't want one, but DxOMark is a reputable reviewer.)
