    What's your choice? Why?

    EDIT: mine goes in a case & holster so it probably doesn't matter

  2. Nylon ... the only option for 64GB.

    My eyes and fingers say ballistic nylon (ooh, it'll match my IWB holster), and my brain says "grab that 64gb".

    But I also want to know how that is affixed to the body, will it peel off, will dirt and natural hand grease clog up the fabric over time?

    Material choice really isnt a matter for me. I suspect both are tough enough to endure my daily abuse.

    However it will be limited, for me at least, to hardware. I really want the red one (because of color not material) but want 64GB. So, like Thom, I am going to be "forced" into the Ballistic; not that I have any qualms about it at all.

    Since its nylon based I suspect that while it has a tactile feeling it will easily slide in and out of my front pocket without issue.

    I got the nylon for the 64g. Like it a lot, looks cool. Will put it in a case anyway.

    I had the Ballistic Nylon for a week and I didn't like it. I thought it was too slippery in my hand. I traded it in for the Metalized Glass Fiber, and no regrets. The MGF is smooth, but I'm able to get a better grip on it. It feels like the Moto X (2013) which I came from and liked.

    64G ballistic nylon, but I have it in a shell holster case from Verizon.

    I bought it then realized it is the SAME as my Oakley Sunglasses cases

    I also got it specifically for the 64gb. my feeling was the MAXX had 32gb when it released and now you can only get 16gb. I have a feeling this will happen with the Turbo.. My Guess is early on the 64gb is avail and then it will drop and they will only have the 32gb

    64G, BN back...tried it for several days before putting into the stock kickstand case from Vzw. Good feel, stays in pocket ok.
