Hello Android and Me,
I've been waiting for the perfect phone for me, and the HTC One is the closest in years. The two main issues I have with it, however, is the no sdcard slot, no wireless charging and the apparent not OTG-USB+Charging+MHL simultaneously.
I understand that Google at one point made a statement that they choose to not have a sd card slot because it can confuse the user or just makes things more complicated. But why is that a valid argument, when all the geeks always seem to want to have one anyway? Is it really that much harder/expensive to cram it into a device? I'd like to know HTC's reason for not including one.
While on the topic of storage space, i would also like to know why the 64GB editions seem to be even harder to come by than the regular 32GB one? Shouldn't a company aim to please the geeks first, because they are the ones who will later spread the word to their friends? They would be the first adopters, and if they're happy, it'll spread like wildfire.
Why not have a separate MHL port, or more pins in the current port, to allow OTG-USB while charging while showing the display through MHL? I would love to be able to use my future android device as a portable media-center, but for this to be a reality, I need access to these three functionalities at the same time.
What was the reasoning by leaving out wireless charging? Was it simply prioritized lower because of physical space requirements? It seems to be that wireless charging is a step towards the future, and I don’t understand why one would chose not to include it.
Thanks in advance for answering!
