    Personally I like it just fine.

    Coming from an M8 I like the nylon. Far less slick without a case than the M8 IMO.

  8. Does it void the warranty on the Turbo?

    Coming from the Droid Maxx I find the Droid Turbo Ballistic Nylon to be an improvement. It is less slippery. I can easily tell what phone I picked up without looking at it.

    Two other things ...
    - It is in the color of my choice ... solid black.
    - It does not have a Verizon logo on it ... anywhere.

    When I bought mine I was sold on the ballistic nylon, but coming from my droid Maxx (to which I miss) I feel like it's an ice skating rink, it does look great, and of course no Verizon branding even on the 32 makes it another sort of special but one handing it gives me to much anxiety. something else to note the red model has a different finish then the black, the red is a matte hard urethane while the black is a soft touch matte urethane.

    Love the ballistic nylon I have carried just 2 wallets past 21 years. Both made from ballistic nylon. ;)

    Wow, that makes me a little nervous watching him struggle with that back housing, with the wireless charger pad and fighting the adhesive and whatnot. I'd be afraid it wouldn't go back together quite like new.

    I agree. And considering IMHO the ballistic nylon is one of the best designs I've seen in a smartphone, doing that would be like taking a step back in terms of design. Personally I'd expect BN to hold up better than the wood or leather backs that are offered on the Moto X. I've heard of the wood backs pealing and the leather backs getting scuffs and tears.

    BN is made to be tear resistant. It was originally created for flak jackets and is now used for products because of their strength. Will it fray? Maybe. Usually when that happens with nylon I take a lighter and get it close to the fraying material and it will burn itself away. And that's a possible remedy here as well. I've held the MGF Turbo. It has a little more grip overall, but usually the only parts of the phone you grip is the sides. On the BN models, the ring that goes around the sides has a soft touch coating, so I'm not seeing the benefit there.

    I definitely wouldn't risk voiding my warranty for it, that's for certain.

    BTW, has anyone noticed there's no edit button for posts? Hopefully that is remedied.

    don't you guys hold your phones by the sides, not back and front?
