    I really don't understand the move away from expandable memory? Why should I be locked into a max amount of memory? I will pass on these phones for that reason.

    So they can push cloud storage and customers use more data backing up data on cloud vs the memory card.

    You are brilliant! That is so very true, I never thought of it that way.

    Going off topic if I may and simultaneously going all Matrix on ya: it's another form of control. Put your data on the cloud so we can see whatcha got. Phones that you can't pull the battery out of so we can talk you 24/7. Makes me wonder if all the choices in phones we have are in fact false choices to box us into corners.

    I will not go with any phone without sd card...32GB should be enough for most people without having to use cloud service though but why limit yourself when you can have 64gb card in ...all these phones with non removable batteries no sd cards to make them slim in design are a no go here ...

    Having no slot for an SD Card, that is a Google move.

    no sd slot is a dealbreaker for me as well.
    im out on this one
    i have the original razr maxx and before that i had a droid x.
    the one thing about the 2 motorola phones that i cant stand is when i hold the phone between my shoulder and ear the person on the other end complains that they cant understand me.
    idk if it was just the phones i got but i dont have that problem with my rezound or my girlfriends galaxy at all. so i was thinking maybe i wont get another motorola

    Does anyone have any info on any updated versions that have a slide out keyboard? I can still type so much faster on my droid 3 than any of the new touch screen types, and I don't have to look at the phone to type, I'm used to the keyboard. Currently (and for a long time) the droid 4 has been it...which isn't better enough than the droid 3 to warrant a switch... Any info appreciated, as my 3 is getting a lot of miles on it..

    Junk junk junk in the trunk

    It's got a duel core processor @1.7Ghz my HTZ Rezound duel core is overclocked to 1.8Ghz. Why would anyone pay $299 this phone? :blink::blink::blink::blink:

    I haven't checked all the phones, but it doesn't look like the Maxx has an external sd card slot. So 32g internal memory (formatted memory may be less) is all you get?
    When I first started reading this post I wanted to kick myself in the pants for allowing my daughter to upgrade so soon, thinking we should have waited for this. But that's okay Verizon, my family will happily keep what we have. There's nothing to snivel about, especially when looking at the cost. Everything they're offering with the Maxx I already have and I paid $150 less.

    agreed - the droid 5 is conspicuously absent. if my d4 had a removable battery so i could put in a larger one and actually go an entire work day (yes, my d4 is usually stone dead by about 3pm after an overnight charge), it'd be a great phone. screw "thin and shiny!" and give me a phone i can actually USE without being tied down. that's the whole purpose of a MOBILE device.

    but they figure that since apple has been so obscenely profitable with their iphones (which have neither removable batteries nor expandable storage), they might as well do it too.

    too bad; chances are next to nil that my next phone will be a motorola.

    I can get 48 hours with my Maxx HD... If I'm barely using it (I've done it multiple times). I'm currently at 48% battery with just over 36 hours off the charger. I also have just shy of 4 hours of screen time

    Except you can get IPhones with 64gigs of internal storage, and I'm guessing the next gen will offer a 128gig option.

    But in order to subsidize your cost, Google NEEDS your info in the cloud so they can mine the data and make more money off advertising.

    I'm not likely to be happy with any phone that doesn't support external storage as long as data is limited. If/When they decide to give us back unlimited data, then maybe I won't care so much.
