    I listen to music on my commute to college every day and I am tired of playing music with it eating up my battery life. My Moto X and Razr M are guilty of this. So I ask you AC members, is there an Android device with:

    -Removable Storage option so I can transfer my music over painlessly

    -LOOOONNNGG Battery Life, so I don`t have to worry about it dying while I`m out or being dead before the day is over.

    I would get an iPod off of Glyde, but it does not have a micro SD card slot. I even thought of getting a tablet, but tablets are bulky and not portable enough to slide in a pocket. Any help is appreciated.

    Is microSD really that important? I mean either you plug the card into a slot on your PC or connect the MP3 player via USB; in both cases you just drag and drop files.

    I never connect my devices to a computer for music. I download music to my device and move it over with the built in file manager to the micro SD card. A micro SD is that important. It helps even more if I need to factory reset or move over to another device.

    Ok, not what I do so wasn't understanding why the microSD card was needed.

    Looks like there are slim pickings online for Android MP3 players with a microSD slot. Might just see if you can pick up something like a Samsung GS3 and use that as an MP3 player. There are lots of just plain MP3 players with microSD slots.

    Moto X and Droid Razr M are both imbedded batteries. I want to get a separate device just for music.

    Forget hardware storage. Get a cloud. Start with 50 GB end-to-end encrypted storage space for free from Mega!
    Never lose or forget your storage again.

    Does it need to be an Android media player? Why not just get a straight MP3 player like one of the Sansa players, which typically are very small and lightweight, and have great battery life? My wife has a Clip Zip, which has a microSD slot. I use an old Zune HD which has great sound quality, but no SD slot. I like having a separate MP3 player for exactly your reason--I don't want to burn up my phone battery while listening to music. I also don't like having my phone with me when I work out in the gym.

    +1. If all you want it for is music then just get a dedicated mp3 player. Many have SD card slots and the battery life is usually pretty awesome. Around 25-30 hours.

    I'd honestly just go for a iPod classic or something. Or if you want to venture outside of android, a lumia 520
