In fact, the phone with the largest storage has 1/4 less than my current phone. Now I can survive with unwanted apps I cannot remove, less than state of the art screen resolution, even the stupidity of no USB digital audio out (as long as I can use USB Audio Recorder Pro app to fool the phone into doing what it should on its own) but less storage!!!
I began checking and am discovering a LOT of new phones also seem to be limited to 32GB of storage forcing heavy users into the 'cloud', a really horrifying idea.
Can someone recommend a NEW phone that has real HD resolution (1080 or better), a decent SD card capability and USB audio out?
I have no desire to talk to the phone, wave my hands over the silly thing to get it to perform like a monkey for a monkey grinder, a gazillion apps I cannot remove, or gimmicks. I want a phone that I can use reliably to make the occasional call, store a LOT of music files, music video's, and use a good outboard DAC for high resolution music files.
You actually have some really good points, it almost seems they want you to use more data, cloud storage, when all you need is a simple sdcard.
Unfortunately I dont have any suggestions for you at this time, but I will keep my eyes open for one.
Well I take that back there is one that may work, the google edition S4 it has all the hardware but none of the silly gimmicks.
I just looked at your carrier, I guess I should have looked there first, the google S4 wont help you.
I guess if your into it you could root the phone and remove crapware you dont like.
