Does the Droid Turbo have the same feel (texture) as the Droid Maxx?

+Jacob Semmler​​​, +Steve Bruce​ no, the Kevlar is actually different from the RAZR Ultra Maxx I had than the more plastic feel of the Kevlar on the Turbo. I didn't much care for the feel of the "Kevlar" Turbo. Didn't have that soft pleasant feel that the earlier Droid RAZR HD Maxx had. Personally I think the ballistic nylon model feels MUCH better than the Kevlar. Also, the only model that offers 32 and 64gb is the black ballistic nylon version with red plate on the back bottom of the phone. That is the model I hot and it's a beast. Absolutely love it. Just read that if (you) bought the black ballistic nylon to get the 64gb and have grown tired of the nylon, which I don't know why anyone would, (you) can buy replacement backs, like the new blue ballistic nylon or the red kevlar, which is a very good look, without missing out on the 64gb option. Hope I've been somewhat helpful.

I think a big part of it is left over from the time that iOS was THE mobile operating system. Verizon could brush off Android and Google without much of a loss, but now that Android is taking over the mobile market, Big Red has to rethink things a little.

I tried, I really did, to love my Nexus 6. And in some ways I did. But I'm going back to my Note 4.

How can I wake my device and bypass (temporarily) my lock screen? If it makes a difference I only use swipe to unlock. No password or anything.

First of all no +Duncan Jaffrey​​​ just no.

The 15hours is the average total time per charge cycle. Totally. Separate from active.

​ Active: the average time phone is active per charge cycle. Includes screen on time plus wake locks. This would include background syncing, playing music, phone calls etc. Notice that the active time for current cycle is exactly the total of held awake and screen time.

The second number is the highest screen on time you've ever had out of any single. Charge cycle.

I'm so torn between my Note 4 and Nexus 6. What I really want is the Nexus' software on the Note's hardware.

+Jeremy Woodruff for me it's mostly the feel in the hand. It's much easier to hold due to its textured back, flat sides and it being narrower. I can use the Note one handed, not the Nexus. The screen is slightly nicer on the Note, though the more I compare them side by side I prefer the DPI on the Nexus. Also the Note feels more solid to me. Here's something I feel like no one will understand, the vibration motor. It's far better on the Note. I couldn't care less about vibrating when ringing. For haptic feedback. The Nexus' motor feels likes (and sounds like) a kids toy. The Note's is solid. But I almost forget about all of this as soon as i start using the far superior software on the Nexus.
