Sounds like something that's about 15 years too late. I mean really who makes phone calls anymore? Sure once in a while, but most people text or instant message. It's like rolling out cellular "home phones" to replace your wire line service. Everyone who's gotten rid of their home phone has done so years ago. HD calling's calling already came and went.
Re: Non-Removable Battery
You can have it.......and keep it if the battery catches on fire again. I'd rather have it like the Galaxy S5 which is waterproof and you can remove the battery. I mean are you really going to go scuba diving with your phone? BTW, you can buy a $10 Red Pepper case on ebay for your phone if you want to take it scuba diving. As a matter of fact I do have an S5 and ...
You would think with Samsung's gigantic, costly fiasco with their last phone and their non-removable battery they would make this new phone have a removable battery. Had their last phone had that ability, they could have just sent out replacement batteries for the bad ones instead of replacing the whole phone. I guess they didn't learn. You can't fix stupid.
Re: Not the same Nokia
Yeah, this is Nokia in name only. They should change their name to NINO instead of Nokia. It's not made by Nokia, only has their name on it. It's really too bad how two iconic brands back in the 90s are either gone or barely on life support. Nokia and Motorola were the brands everyone wanted. Then Nokia got lost along the way and became second rate once Android came about. Selling to ...
Re: 100GB Per Month
Exactly. Verizon is breaching their contract through a bait and switch scheme. Verizon was outright lying when they offered "unlimited" plans and now want to do away with it. They should be investigated by the FCC and even sued by those customers affected by Verizon's lying.
Then they wonder....
Why so many Americans are unemployed. This is a typical example of how both Democrats and Republicans sold this country to China. Look how Motorola is now owned by some Chinese company. The list is too large to write them all down. They sold our country to China.
There's an imaginary "war on women" being sold to us by the left. However, in places where there really is a war on women like the Middle East where women are kept as slaves, companies like Google have no problem with it. Makes one wonder what their real agenda is.
Re: Might as well not even report on this...
Yeah I remember about 2 or 3 years ago about some college student won a contest by designing some rapid charger that could charge your phone to like 90% within a half hour and how it was a "game changer" and she won some money and they were going to market it and that's the last we ever heard about it.
Another name for "leftist propaganda." It's well known that Zuckerberg is a leftist, socialist, billionaire, globalist. He's now developed a news feed for his sheep to not see anything that he doesn't want you to see. He envelopes it as a new algorithm that predicts what you want to read, but really it's what Facebook wants you to read-not you.
Re: OH GREAT another POWER TOOL LOOKING PHONE!
And it doesn't run on LTE in 2016. Epic fail.
The government imports Jihad terrorists into the US, then punishes all Americans as a result of their behavior. Obama wants to let in hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees, many of which will be terrorists, and then when they go around shooting up the place, watch congress and president try to ban the 2nd Amendment more than ever. But hey, it's a small price to pay for political correctness. Our government is actually bringing in the ...
Re: How the game works
I love it when some ignorant ass uses the "tin foil hat" argument for something they're too blind to see because their face is buried in their cell phone 24/7.
Re: Gotta love it
Not many people know it. It's like if Goldman Sachs was listed as non profit. The NFL makes plenty of profit.
How the game works
You have our government importing folks from regions that want to Jihad our butts. So you bring them in, then take away American's freedoms as a result of their bad behavior. Like here, we have to let the government look at our phones because we now have tons of Jihadists in this country that our government let move here. I guess it's a small price to pay for political correctness. Believe me, the government wasn't ...
Gotta love it
I guess the Vikings original stadium was waaaay too old to fix up. It's better to just rip it down and rebuild another billion dollar stadium funded by the taxpayers. Does anyone know that the NFL is tax exempt? Here you have a billionaire NFL owner getting the taxpayers to pay for an unneeded stadium using the public's money. Then the same public that paid for that stadium get charged a rip off price for ...
Re: Verizon's high standards
That's proprietary CDMA for ya. The US had to be different and used some locked down, proprietary technology from Qualcomm while the rest of the world moved along with the open standard GSM. But we had to be different. After the US invaded Iraq, we tried to force our garbage CDMA on Iraq so they could be a little island from the rest of the world, just like us. That's called corruption as you know ...
Corporatism at its finest. People like Bernie Sanders go on about the evils of capitalism, but really it's corporatism that is the problem. Corporatism is the warped perversion of capitalism. Capitalism is all about competition, but corporatism is all about buying up your competition so there is none or only a small few left. Here Motorola was an iconic brand for over 75 years, but now some giant Chinese corporation bought them up and are ...
I'd prefer to ditch Facebook. It's ran by ultra leftist globalist Mark Zuckerberg and is used as a spying tool by the government. Everyone shares their most intimidate thoughts and details about their life on FB. Used to be if you wanted to find out about someone, you'd hire a private investigator. Now you just go to FB where your person of interest shares everything about their life including pictures. FB is a Trojan ...
Re: Google Shame
"Time to move on" that's all you can say? Motorola invented the cell phone. It's a brand that's been around for over 50 years. Now it's time to move on from Motorola to great brand names like ZTE, Huawei, Alcatel, Lenevo and all the other "iconic" Chinese name brands. Yeah Conway, this is another example of greedy corporate pirates raiding a company to loot their goods, then sell off the remaining carcass. Google needed ...
Here is another example of the government meddling in something that is working and good in an effort to quash it. People are happy, so the government is mad. Some carriers are offering free data usage, so the government is actually trying to stop it. They are trying to stop it in the name of "free, open and innovative" internet. So they are actually wanting to stop a free service in the name of making ...
Re: Another Example
Keep LMAO you clown. Ever heard of prepay? You don't need a SS# for that. Go to a local DMV and watch the illegals get drivers licenses even though they are here illegally. We need someone with the balls like Trump to take this problem on head on and not let idiots like you all this crap to keep going on in this country. Go try to sneak into Mexico and see how they ...
Re: Another Example
And why did they buy a Mexican carrier to begin with? Again, to take advantage of all the illegal immigration in the US from Mexico.
Of corporations encouraging illegal immigration. Give free roaming for illegals when they go back home for the weekend. Notice they don't have free roaming in Canada, mainly because we don't have a lot of Canadians flooding into the US. Corporations are guilty of encouraging illegal immigration.
The Obama economy......it's a booming! Everything is fine. Go back to sleep.
Re: Cheap Bastards
Yeah I'm basing it off of putting a few rubber gaskets on the phone. There are some sub $150 Kyoceras and Alcatels that are waterproof, so I don't think it's any major engineering obstacle.
Re: Cheap Bastards
Yup and an airplane doesn't fly either, it's "gravity resistant" based on your logic. And for the record, submarines have been to the bottom of the Mariana Trench all the way back in 1960. A submarine is considered waterproof, just like a boat. Is a boat "water resistant" too in your book? And why not make the gasket out of poop since you want to make it out of bacon? Hell make it out of ...
Re: Cheap Bastards
Do you know how much of an idiot you sound like? A submarine is indeed waterproof, not water "resistant". You try to sound like you're smart, but you sound like a moron instead. And who said anything about Samsung? I sure didn't. You drew that inference yourself, again showing what an idiot you are. All I was talking about was how Apple could spend $2 or less in gaskets to make their phone ...
Not Coming Soon to a Store Near You
From what I've looked up about this Marshall phone, it won't be coming to the US anytime soon, if ever. It's also priced around $500 and is a mid to slightly upper mid tier phone. Has mid range specs for pretty much everything except the music player.
Looks like Verizon is in the beginnings of becoming a second rate carrier. They are in the infancy of their fall. Sure, it won't happen right away. It will take a few years....maybe 5 or even less, but Verizon is in their very beginnings of slipping away. All companies do it....IBM, Kmart, Sears, Xerox, Nokia, Motorola, etc. I imagine VZ spent at least $700 grand or even more coming up with this new plain ...
It's a small price to pay
For "diversity." Keep letting into the US these radical Islamic Jihadist from the Middle East so our government has an excuse to spy on everyone. If it's not the "war on drugs" to justify the police driving around in massive armored cars and dressed up like paramilitary storm troopers, it's now the "war on terror" to justify the government spying on every phone call and email.
Re: Personally I like it...
Love it. Wow you really ripped into him line by line! lol I agree with you. I refuse to buy any Android phone that doesn't have a removable battery or SD slot. This guy is just trying to justify buying it by making himself feel better. He decides he doesn't really even want an SD card slot after "thinking about it." Yeah, it would be like buying an expensive new car, but it ...
Won't be buying
Since Samsung has decided to become an Apple clone, I won't be buying the Note 5 or S6. They used to distinguish themselves from Apple by having removable batteries and SD card storage. Not anymore. I'd still buy their other phones that have these features, but not their flagship phones anymore. If I wanted an Apple clone, I'd go buy an Apple phone.
Motorola job cuts
The economy......it is a booming! Maybe these laid off folks can go get one of Obama's "shovel ready jobs" that he promised in his first term. Oh wait, that's right, there were no shovel ready jobs! It was all campaign lie. A joke on us. Maybe if Motorola would stop trying to copy Apple they might get ahead. Stopping the non-removable batteries would be a good start. Another good change would be ...
They've had 20 years now to build up their network and it still sucks for the most part. I wouldn't have Sprint if you paid me. They have no redeeming qualities.
Maybe if Sprint weren't such A-holes they'd have more customers. Doing stuff like locking down phones or blacklisting them on collection accounts so people can't sell them to other people to use. They don't want customers I guess.
Re: No surprise
Actually your description of corporate goons is pretty accurate. Just look up Monsatan and their pushing GMOs on the masses when the majority of people don't want them. These corporations are extremely politically correct as well-pushing it not only on their employees, but also friend of the court briefs (like gay marriage) on the Supreme Court. There were over 139 corporations sticking their nose in the SCOTUS pushing gay marriage. The stock market is skyrocketing ...
That there's no inflation. We keep hearing the lies that there is no inflation and I guess this is just more proof. :roll:
Illegal Calling Plan
I see T-Mobile is cashing in on the illegal alien influx into the US-just like most of these globalist corporations. They now have a plan to call back to Mexico while you're here (illegally) and to use while you're in your home country. Notice Canada isn't in that plan, because there isn't an illegal alien problem with Canada. It's another example of companies cashing in to make a buck. Enablers is what they really are. ...
Yeah you're right. We would have a network that ranks on the level of Pakistan or Nigeria. It's all part of the lie we Americans we live under. We're constantly told how we're the best, yet we are almost 3rd world in a lot of ways. Our DSL/cable internet is among the slowest in the world. Asia has 1gbs internet speed. Here 20mbs is considered "blazing." The rest of the world has ...
Re: Not so fast....
Very good. You know how these evil globalist corporations work. :twisted: You're exactly right, if they double battery life, they will cut the size of the battery in half so you gain nothing, but charge you 50% more to buy it. I'm betting that this "breakthrough technology" will fizzle into nothing. I remember almost 20 years ago hearing about the "breakthrough" potassium ion battery and how it was going to be a game ...
