HTC Droid DNA
It's really a shame
Just based alone on the fact that this is a 16GB phone, non-removable battery, and I would be forced to use up the data that I pay for to use a cloud service, there is no way in hell I would ever even pay a single cent for this phone, which would be a money-pit.
You change those two things about this device, and it goes from the bottom of the barrel INSTANTLY to the very, very top. Above the Note II and the GS III.
This could have been *THE* flagship phone, instead, it's a tugboat.
slowandlong1 said:Is it possible the carrier would make such a request.
It IS possible, but I've never seen a carrier outwardly reject an SD slot before...they really have no reason to. I know a big reason the Nexus 4 doesn't have one (aside from the obvious benefits of lower girth and price) is because it promotes people to use Drive (a Google service) with their N4 (a Google phone). But aside from that, I have no idea.
What else would you need more than 16 Gb for really? It's clear that the carriers and manufacturers are trying to persuade ppl to STREAM. Use Google play for your music and if u wanna watch a movie is Netflix or something similar. All on that quick Verizon LTE.
I understand it's all about freedom to do what u like but let's keep it real....the end user is never going to win.
Also, if you format this phone, you lose anything saved on the phone.
is the phone you want. Better specs and does have an SD slot. Right now, if you can find one, it would cost around $700.
They have a new flagship just "leaked" called the HTC M7, with a 4.7" screen 1080p, etc... that is supposed to replace the One+.
Butterfly would be a Horrible purchase, as it only supports HSPA/WCDMA: 850/2100 MHz. No 3G/4G in North America...
It is certainly interesting that the SPECS tab displays (I did not originally notice it):
FWIW, this edition is not due until February, so who knows what might change? That would be a deal-breaker, though.
And how would I "stream" anything while riding the underground subways of New York City?!? There is no coverage underground.
This device is aimed at folks who don't really USE their phone all that much as a Media Player.
