    You forgot to put "forced" in quotes.

    No one uses SD against their will. If you take the card out you now no longer have SD. But you cannot add SD to a phone that does not support it.
    You still fail to see the point I made. If I buy a phone without sd because I don't need it, there would no concern over not being able to add it. That point you make is moot. The simple solution is always, if you need a certain feature on a phone, buy a phone that has it. If it is that important, than one shouldn't mind paying more for a different phone.

    One poll from a tech site.... That's like polling only pig farmers about what kind of meat tastes best and assuming the ret of the world agrees.

    Let's try to keep discussion constructive here. Android Central ran a poll back in October about which features the community wanted most. While it's not the same as asking "external storage or not," it does speak to the relative importance that the community places on external storage compared to other features.

    So 6% of nerds, who represent approximately 1-2% of people in general .... around .09% of people think that's the most important feature is storage. Almost 2/3rd between OS and battery life. Not scientific and doesn't teach us what normal people think, but very interesting.

    ...as opposed to the zero evidence posted so far that the general population doesn't think the same thing. Ok.

    You two are hoping to find a poll of the general smart-device consumer base asking specifically what importance they place on having external storage capabilities. We get it. As far as I'm aware, those polls don't exist, for the same reason that communities like Android Central are made up largely of the enthusiast crowd: the general consumer base does not have much interest in finding and participating in such polls, and most consumers who end up at sites like this (not to mention Rootz/XDA) are seeking help. We're more interested in such data than they are. The polls people have posted in this thread are obviously not representative of the true consumer relevance, but unless you find a focus group or case study done by a leading Android manufacturer, you won't find data that is properly representative of said relevance.

    You can either accept that the existing data doesn't cover all the bases, so to speak, or you can try to extrapolate relevant conclusions based on the enthusiast crowd's opinions. The general consumer market and the enthusiast market are different, but they are not mutually exclusive.

    So since the leading single factor is apparently battery life, why is the N4 more coveted than the Razer Maxx HD?

    Because a significant portion of the people answering that poll are likely those who prefer stock Android and unlocked, unaltered devices. The Nexus 4 offers good battery life. It's not as great as the RAZR MAXX devices, sure, but it's a great upgrade from its AOSP predecessor, the Galaxy Nexus.

    Or those who like the $350 price tag over the $600 price tag ;-)

    So that poll would be interesting to see with people picking and ranking their top 3 considerations. See how many of the battery people would have picked OS as 2nd, etc. We need massive data! lol

    Back in December I considered launching a site/service dedicated specifically to collecting and analyzing data about the mobile industry. Never did follow up on the concept though. Way too many projects and much too little time.

    The data collection would be pretty monster, especially trying to keep it honest and trying to get a wide enough sample size... hard to get people to take surveys about stuff they don't care about.

    They exist. You're just going to have to pay an analyst firm $5,000 to $30,000 to get that research. That cost is why you rarely see more than a few data points from those studies in the public domain.

    The studies are also able to be very specific; what kinds of icons people like, how screen animations should look, menu designs, widget functionality, etc. etc.

    My preferences are simple: stock, lean, fast and I don't want to have to think about battery life or micromanage anything on it unless I want to. I'm not going to swap batteries. I want my data to sync seamlessly between all of my devices (love Google for making that happen) and I want everything to be customizable, especially what buttons/gestures exist and what they do, etc. I like durability and a sleek design; I want it to be something I enjoy holding and interacting with.

    For me Nexus does it, but some reviewers disagree. *shrug* guess that's why I'm not a reviewer.

    Exactly. I've done deep market analysis in my work for T-Mobile in the past, but we just don't have access to those resources for comparisons at the online community level.

    If only.

    Same here. I have an iMac, a MacBook Air and an iPad, and yet I use Google rather than iCloud to sync calendars, contacts, bookmarks and browsing history across all of my devices. My only wish is that Google Calendar and Outlook 2011 could sync in both directions so I could just accept meeting invitations rather than having to go another step and create a duplicate for Calendar.
