    Of course we will if there is no other choice. However, if there is a choice between removable batteries and/or SD expansion then many will buy those because of those differences. I wonder if all those who make Samsung the top seller would still buy them instead of the more solid feeling Motos or HTC One if none had replaceable batteries and SD card expansion. I bet it's more than you think. Of course, no one really knows. Perhaps Samsung has done marketing studies that give them the answer, or maybe not.

    Where have you seen a 32GB Moto X? I can only find the 16GB one on both Verizon and AT&T. Please post a link where one can be bought on contract.

    I actually would argue against SD cards, there's as many reasons against them as for them. But one thing I think we both would agree on is that manufacturers need to bump up the spec on internal storage.

    I'm not disappointed in the device. I'm disappointed in the marketing (so far, but it's early) and pricing behind it. If it's priced identical to the S4, HTC One, iPhone 5 (5S soon), what compelling reason does an average user have to choose it over those devices (on any carrier)? Let alone the other Droid devices on Verizon? Can a retail rep truly convince an average user to choose it over those other options for the same price? There's only one truly compelling reason to the average user (who Moto is supposedly targeting with it)... and that's the form factor. But I don't think form factor alone can sell a device. Consumers will need to have the device in their head before they walk into a store, and so far I've seen nothing from Motorola with regard to primetime commercials or anything along those lines.

    And I don't think it's even priced unfairly - but it's not priced competitively, and doesn't provide enough to the average user to overcome the pricing IMHO.

    And FWIW, I had a Maxx for a week and loved it for the most part. But as implied by "had" - I'm not keeping it and I'm sticking with the S4 for now. (disclaimer: I'm a phone-camera snob! :tongue:)

    Edit: Let me also add that if the camera was a bit better, I probably would've stuck with it... as an Android enthusiast, I can honestly say I feel it's the best Android device and Android experience out there. So it's not that I dislike the phone, at all.

    I could accept no SD expansion if the phone had at least 32GB memory and at least a 2600 mAh battery. The Droid Maxx meets this, but I think it's just a little too big for my pocket. What I really want is a Droid Mini Maxx, so to speak. A Droid Mini with 32GB and 2600 mAh. Maybe I'll wait to see when Verizon gets the X with 32GB or see if the S4 Mini materializes. I do like the X that I played with a bit at the Verizon store.

    Just what reason can there be against SD expansion? Take the Droid RAZR Maxx vs the Droid Maxx. Both have 32GB memory, but the RAZR Maxx has SD expansion. If 26GB free is enough then no need for the expansion, but if someone needs extra then the RAZR Maxx has the option. What valid reason can you give for the RAZR Maxx expansion being a disadvantage?

    I do think that 32GB should be the minimum on phones these days.
