Why no MicroSD?!

I do not get this, I love a lot of things about this phone, and others, but the lack of expandable storage is a deal breaker for me at ANY size. That said, this phone, in a much smaller screen size and overall size, with microSD would be great. Oh well.
Couldn't agree more, expandable storage is absolutely requred. My Pro G has it (and a removable battery). I hope this is just an aberration for this model that will be rectified with the next.
With a flagship like this, they're trying to put the largest possible battery and display into the thinnest possible body.

They actually came up with a non-rectangular battery to fit the curve of the back, to eek everything they could out of every ...
I also agree with you!

I've already almost filled up a 32G microSD card on my current phone and will soon need a 64Gb one.

And "Cloud" storage isn't a viable option since I don't have great network coverage everywhere. And with no more "unlimit...

Call me crazy, but...

...isn't it time manufacturers started focusing on less glitzy features in exchange for features that matter in the real world?

For example, phones are destined for a harsh life of abuse yet they are notoriously fragile with screens getting cracked from minor drops and death from minor exposure to water. Another common complaint is that the batteries just don't last enough hours. Also one or the other speaker (earpiece or speakerphone) tend to fail at some point. Laptops are built to higher standards and they are likely to spend their lives on a desk in a climate/humidity controlled building!

It seems to me that a bigger focus needs to be placed on developing phones that can handle the real world instead of attempting to make a phon...

Back buttons?

Won't setting the phone down cause the middle back button to be pressed? It looks raised on some of those photos. My first thought was that it was a little rubber nub-like stand and thought oh cool, but to find out its a button??
Looks like the little brackets on the side on the button are raised, so it couldn't be pressed if placed on a flat surface.
No, there's a stationary thin plastic ridge around all of the buttons, that is raised up along with the center button. It protects it from being pressed accidentally. You can see it - if you look for it - in the top photo of the article.

What? the Optimus G pro and the Optimus G are awesome phones.
