    At least in Finland it has been available for quite some time. Personally I'm not a huge fan of Snapdragon 400.

    Now all of us need the fastest phone on the market. I'm quite fine with the performance of my 635. I'm actually more interested in the LED flash for the rear-facing camera....lol.

    I've got a nice Sony digital camera that takes beautiful pictures but it's not exactly convenient to carry it everywhere I go. My Lumia 635 doesn't have a flash, so it takes very poor low-light pictures. The 640 has a flash so it solves my issue with low-light pictures.

    Alright gents, I need your help to push me to spend money.

    I'm seeing Droid Turbos on Ebay going for ~$400-500. Im thinking I want to get one but need further persuasion.

    Can anyone give me a reason why I shouldn't get it? Are there any other phones out now or soon to be released with similar specs to the turbo?

    I am looking for:

    No larger than 5-5.2" screen
    QuadHD Display
    Great Battery Life
    Decent Camera
    Android
    Unlocked and Rootable
    No more than ~$500 in price.

    Just don't want to grab a Turbo only to see a new model or brand of handset come out in a month that I would have preferred over the Turbo.

    The Turbo is a beautiful device, but I feel that $400-$500 is kind of high.

    I suggest looking on Swappa for a device.

    ^ 4-500 is high? That phone was recently selling for 600+.

    Swappa is cool, but since this is a US Verizon phone its not shown in CA. Also, US side shows none available.

    For used, yes I do feel it is a little high. Even new, it is kind of high.

    What carrier do you need it for? You can find an LG G2 or a G3 for pretty low right now, and those both are receiving tons of support from LG and the community.

    ^ I would be using on Bell.

    I have an LG now, and though its good, I don't really like the G2 or G3 all that much.

    I got the Galaxy A7 for mom in the morning .. haha man .. what a huge upgrade for her. From a Nokia N95 8Gb to a Galaxy A7! It's a dual sim model. I've it with me for a few days so I can get the hang of it before I teach her .. wish it had android 5. It's on 4.4.4 so it's a bit choppy here and there. Nice handset. Software can be better :p

    My 2013 iphone 5s is smoother than the A7. If she didn't want a phablet, I would've just given her my iphone and bought a 6 for myself. Hopefully android 5 will improve things but that will be sometime in June. I prefer the iphone's screen too but this is a $395 device v/s a $700 device so ....

    Thou shalt not state thy happiness with your android device.
