Anyone exciting for the new droid line?
Cant wait for Moto X to be released!
Some people are excited... I've already seen 2 ultra maxx's that that crashed and burned....not good..but there's always bad ones that roll off the assembly line. I do like the battery of the maxx though...3500Mah is a big battery. .
I myself.... I've been away too long. Phones aren't exciting to me right now...lol
Sometime i feel the same i dislike sd card option being away. Maybe with 64 gb i wouldnt mind not caring about internal
Just got my RAZR HD 4 months ago. So I don't care about these phones. But the RAZR HD will be my last Moto.
I will not buy a phone without a card slot.
I see people everywhere saying: Well, I guess I don't need a card slot...
And slowly but surely, Google wins and gets everyone to stop caring about having an SD card. Now we have to pay more for our phones to get larger storage. Now we have to start storing all our music on Google servers. Now we have to use more data to get our stuff.
People used to speak with their dollars. Now, it seems, marketing is winning.
Remember the good old days when the first Droid came out? How we loved to compare it to the iPPhone because we had a memory slot? How much we LOVED that extrra storage? Have we forgotten those days?
I have not. I will only support companies with my dollars that continue to give me what I want: Samsung, Sony, and LG.
The only problem is the newest top tier phones have no SD.
LG G2? No card slot.
HTC One? No card slot.
Google changed the files system and manufacturers are dumping SD.
Most do now support USB OTG.
What some company should do is come up with an OTG case with a SD/Micro SD slot.
No SD card slot=fail!
I happen to agree with PereDroid on this. As this Motorola device is my first and last, I will not spend the amount of money that these devices cost so that I can not have an SD Card storage slot. For me it was difficult enough to give up the removable battery, which that was a God sent considering the earlier devices (mainly HTC) often froze (at random) and a battery pull was required. Now, with the deletion of the SD Card it does not work for me. Looking at that last OTA that we received for the XT926, if you lost Root with an Unlocked Bootloader you could restore Root by adding SuperSU to the storage card and rebooting into Recovery. What is going to happen for those of you that purchase these devices that do not have SD Card slots or storage. What happens when Root Exploits are patched, are you going to wait for another or in most cases pray for another Exploit to be discovered? I'm not going to allow that to happen to me. I've already made up my mind as I'm going to go over to the Galaxy Note 3, the expandable storage is plentiful and if they stick with the removable battery, then that is a bonus. As for size, I really don't mind, I've looking to consolidate my usage into something like a phablet then a separate Android device and a laptop. Besides if the S-Pen advancements are there as they have been rumored then all the better.
I will leave this for all of those moving onwards to Google's Grand Plan of relying on their Servers for your life's enjoyment. There is a product that is development, it is available for some devices already, it expands External Memory through the Micro-USB slot, which it is a Mini MicroSD Card Reader. Certainly is something that is well worth considering as card slots continue to disappear.
Dont worry if samsung goes with that option of removing sd card next year. Then, what company you going with then ? Lg remove the sd card along with htc last year. And, Motorola is listening to Google not to their own as ceo is from google remember they replace San Jay. Worst mistake Google ever made. They should of kept him as CEO and fired over 10,000 employer from Motorola in that process.
Google is as evil as Apple bunch of hypocrites.
Agree with PereDroid and KaChow on this. As long as there are phone models that have the SD card slot, those are the ones that I will consider buying.
But what if the specs are bad then what?
Well with what you just said i might just get Droid Ultra after all look at mini micro sd card reader.
Boy you save me from going to Samsung. Im going to share this info on separate forum.
I'm on with the sd card crew...I will worry about no phone having one which I truly don't think it will happen ...I will NOT get one without one...
As for if I had to choose between both phones a Maxx would be the choice...Ultra with it's glossy back is a no go...Maxx has a nicer build...
Read the page what kachow put you dont need an sd slot with this mini micro sd adapter is like having pc that use the usb drive.
I saw it...not interested...
While I give credit to whoever that created this SD card/mini USB Extender as it is very helpful for those that purchase devices without SD card storage. It is not solution and should not be viewed as a reason to purchase a device with internal only storage. It still is temporary solution, after all it would be hard to charge the device with a half-inch plug sticking out of the side of the device. In which case something's still gotta go.
The lack of an SD card is a definite no no in my book....in don't like this push for us to use clouds. Especially with unlimited data gone.... and they keep looking for ways to pry it away from the people who are clinging to it..
Well I dont like Samsung so this feature will keep me at bay.
I personally like their device but I'm not Samsung fan don't like the company to much.
I respect their specs and top of game. But like apple, Motorola isnt going to make device that make you say wow it work it work.
No offensive Google bearly use dual core on gaming and with GPU of quad core why do Motorola need to put quad core on CPU again?
80% of games are ported from apple they use dual core we don't need quad core CPU.
Unless ya becoming specs whore.
Like window users calls us.
If I had to pick a Motorola device of the four newly available Maxx, Ultra, Mini or X. I would have to go with the X. While I hate to say this (as I happen to like Motorola) the Droid line is not going to get much attention when it comes to Development. Are the Droid devices interesting and worth exploring, I think so, but I tend to see the new Droid line as a "really great stock phone." It simply is not going to be a hot item off the self, with what is already out there. The Moto X is going to steal the show, it's not a high-end device, but it is going to be easy to customize. This is one of those devices that can easily be broken down and taken apart and reconstructed very easily, which that is very important. This will attract more Development as it already has, the Bootloader will be crackable on this device with Verizon, if it makes into the right Devs hands and there is enough support behind this.
When it comes to choosing the Droid line, if you want a great phone that performs extremely as locked and stock device, then you are consumer the Droid line is targeting. But, if you want a device that can be customized, cracked, and hacked then the Moto X is your best shot from Motorola.
Who cares really? I mean most of us have ONE freaking SD card, MOST of us bought our phones with a contract, MOST of us paid between $150 and $250. MOST of us are not even using up anywhere near 8 GBS of memory.
I get the "freedom" part... but if any of you had the experience with Android since really its inception, there is no doubt most freedoms have been taken away. For example, this garbage about "rooting", what trash. The whole attraction to Android initially was that it was up against the iPhone, once the iPhone blew up, Google and others saw that we like smart phones, so they jumped on the band wagon, BUT they had an OPEN Source, not closed like the iPhone.
Now your telling me I have to basically JAIL BREAK my phone to access features I was already supposed to be able to access?
LOL, I find it funny that people are actually hanging onto the one last thing they left "open" for us, and thats some SD Card slot.
There is no arguing that the iPhone and Androids are starting to "merge" as the data from what people want start to create a main stream, hell, even notice how some phones have "Mini's" now? Why? Because they know MOST people do not want 5.5" screens.
The Note was in no way expected to sell the way it did, but it did, to that certain market.
SD Cards go bad anyway in time.
@jimmythegent I this it's important enough for plenty of us...It's great with Android we all have choices..But what's important to you and me might not be to others...so I can't say who cares? or it's silly when someone else might want that specific feature...Moto will have enough people that will love the phone it's a quality build...At the same time I and plenty of others like a bigger screen....or my sd card which is 64GB and holds about 32GB of music and stuff I want to myself ..I don't want cloud I will hold onto a card for as long they have them available...You can enjoy all these phones(most) stock as out of the box ..especially now with the new technology ...but some people like to root and unlock ...you see different strokes for different folks...
I've never had a sd card go bad...can they sure of course...I back up weekly what's most important...a phone can crap out too and you lose it all...
