Great write up. Very reasonable to see the phone market (and all tech) as a give and take innovation. If someone does it well, no need to reinvent the wheel, and in the end consumers benefit because that feature is usually incrementally improved. I am no fan of apple and am all thumbs when it comes to using their products, but I am not too stubborn to acknowledge that they steer technology in a positive direction. It is good to see that apple is now willing to admit that sometime form and function can actually have some practical implications and a middle ground.
I am glad to see hardware that is playing nice with all of the LTE variants. Great step in the right direction.

Even if it did have it, how many users would have their tablet is a handy place to pull out an pay with out holding up a line or looking like a goof. No loss here,
Because "Everything's coming up Milhouse!"
Going to have to agree with mc_android.
I always enjoy having the ability to add some extra storage. I spend a lot of time in places where I don't have wifi or cell service.Being able to store a huge library of music, audiobooks and movies is a must for me.
Something about having 3 seasons of Mad Men in my pocket gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling.
Thank you for using the word coitus in an android article.
Agreed, that may be the one saving grace of this phone.
For google to do this after the io ticket registration bed shitting is a little too much for me in one day.
And now to waste some of my own time
Nope. Works in your profile tagline though
I believe the br tag worksBreak testif three lines, it works
I am very happy to see this trend toward un-subsidized AFFORDABLE phones. I think it will benefit customers to see the real value of the phone and separate that cost from the service provider.
I think this device will find some support. Others have pointed out that the "free" 1TB of google drive space is worth more than the device. If someone were already looking to subscribe for the space, you could essentially get the Pixel for free ($50 per month for 1TB for three years is $1,800).
Wow, bold move! But that level of commitment pays off.
I have the Razr, which lasts most days for me. I can't imagine how great the MAXX must be. I agree that the death of the SD card would be a BAD thing.
I am not too into games on the phone, but recently I was obsessed with World of Goo. I know it is an older game, but I had never heard of it. You can try out the demo before you buy
Not a bad looking piece of hardware, but I am sure HP can find a way to load it up with enough junkware to make it unusable. Holding out for the imaginary Chromebook Pixel.
Not available to all, but Motorola's Smart Actions is a pretty good battery saver. I created a rule I call wifi mode that disables cellular data when connected to my home and work wifi. I saw a big battery savings here. I also have it set to disable wifi, cell data, and autosync when the screen is off and the phone is not moving for a few minutes. With these two settings, it is rare that I don't make it through a whole day on a single charge.

From what I can tell, the thread system on this site seem to be a work in progress. Other people have pointed out that it is not possible to get to the "next page" of threads. I am sure after the crazy giveaway days are over, these bugs will be sorted out.
