This is a serious black mark in my book, and might be the deciding factor to push me to the Nexus (assuming it's battery is replaceable)...
To be honest; if I had a phone I need vs a phone I want, I'd still have the Moto e815.
EDIT: An Android device with a non-removable battery? YIKES!!!! Hope it has a reset button.
Just like with the Bionic, you can hold Volume Up/Volume Down/Power to do a hard reset.
Moto claims 12 hours of 3g talk time and 9 hours of video playback. Yet to be seen how that translates into real world usage.
The non-removable battery has worked for Apple.
I have CDO. It's like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.
As for the "3 button salute" - thanks, didn't know you could do that. But does that even work if the device is hardlocked to the point where it doesn't respond to button presses? It's still sending a software command, something has to be listening to respond.
Out of curiosity are those having Bionic issues using rooted devices? I'm unrooted (albeit new) and haven't had a single issue with my Bionic that wasn't a 'user error'. I'm not very tech savvy or maybe I got lucky but I'm so confused by all the negative thoughts on the Bionic? Seems like the best available option right now...and with smartphones being ever-evolving there will always be a decrease in value over time (except the iphone which holds itself from status more than anything else I think). It's silly to compare a phone that's already out there to one yet to be released...but that's my thoughts. If you want the 'perfect phone' you could be waiting forever since there's always something newer in the works.
