    The Droid Turbo and the Moto X both have 5.2" screens and similar software, but the Droid Turbo is 1440p and the Moto X is 1080p. The Droid Turbo has a 77% larger battery but doesn't get anywhere near 77% longer battery life. The resolution is the only factor I can point to to explain that.

    EDIT: I take that back; some reviews had said the Droid Turbo didn't last as long as they expected, but when I found places that tested both it and the Moto X with the same methodology, it did last nearly twice as long as the Moto X. For example:

    I have a question for you fellas. My Z3 takes a split second to load wallpapers- apparently due to Sony's power management killing the app when the phone is asleep. So is there any way to not have it do that without rooting?

    I stopped there.

    BGR is a nope.

    If you want to try Nova Launcher, there is an aggressive caching option in the settings that will place the launcher at a lower OOM value and keep it in memory longer.

    I have always used Nova. So it works out well haha. I just enabled that setting. Guess we will see if that fixes it. Will report back. Thanks, Hal!

    Edit: Yeah...that didn't work. Thanks for the help though. I don't know if I can fix it without root. I should also mention that I am using 500 firepaper to set my wallpaper I guess your tip wouldn't work anyway. Sony kills any wallpaper app when the phone goes to sleep.

    I have also had it take a second for the wallpaper to wake up when exiting an app on my Moto X (2014) with Nova Launcher Prime. I don't think it's a Sony-specific issue, but instead a Nova-specific issue (it doesn't happen when I'm using Google Now Launcher). This happens with even the simplest of third-party wallpaper apps (such as HarshSinghvi's Material Wallpapers, just a collection of Material Design static images), but not with the bundled wallpapers, including live wallpapers (phase beam, bubbles, etc).

    So what's all this I read about Android Silver? Is it supposed to replace their Nexus line or what? Seems from the description it's kind of the same...

    I wish it was just a Nova issue. It happens with all launchers. It is definitely a Sony-specific issue. You can google it and find many threads on the internet dating back to the original Xperia Z if I am not mistaken. Just a minor annoyance for me. Thanks again for everyones help. If anyone else has suggestions throw them my way. I will test them.

    Anyone know a good android dev? I need someone to put a good rom on the new Kindle Fire HD6 for me. I've got a project that requires a 6" tablet, I tried to make the 2nd gen Nexus 7 work but its simply to large. Other than an extremely expensive phone the Fire HD6 is the best tablet of the size.
