    One thing is certain in life and that's change, the great thing about change is as humans we are designed to be very adaptable.
    Everyone has a preference but I've worked on computers for 36 yrs, if you can't memory manage in this day and age you'll have issues.
    As people said and we know, apps, games, videos are all getting larger, I have 2 terabytes of storage at home, and still use dropbox.
    I personally like the phone, and I'll be getting 2 (pending battery reviews) but I will be Smarter than Verizon, and still do what I want to do
    without paying them a arm/leg for data rate.

    You mean Google ruined a great feature themselves.

    The sd card situation wasn't broken.

    It works great on the galaxy s 3, worked great in my HTC EVO 4G, work great in my wife's razr m, her old infuse - . See where I'm going with this?

    What's so hard about making a decent sized internal memory, then making the sd card show up as "external sd"?

    Sorry. Cloud is NOT the total answer. Cloud requires..... Network Access. Network access is limited and expensive.... from an airplane. I fly 125-150 thousand miles a year. Much of that is international. Sorry, cloud is not an option. Removing the SD card kills my ability to take media with me for a 2 week trip.

    Except it WAS broken, because every manufacturer used a different implementation. Go read up on googles reasons for removing them.

    I dont mind using the cloud but I refuse to be a slave to it! 32 is not enough to me, my tbolt with 8 + 32 OS the minimum. don't care if its internal or SD, buy as much as I love HTC phones, they can keep their POS. no wonder Samsung is kicking theirss ,look at all the storage they give.

    htc's answer is BS...this obviously confirms that it was verizon that wanted the sd slot removed.....and the 2nd part about being a thin phone w/ 5" screen? the J butterfly is thin and has a 5" screen and it has a sd slot.....wrong response htc.....

    They delivered the highest resolution screen in the smallest possible package with the best processor available for their target price point of $199. More storage or a bigger battery would not be doable at that price point. Other $199 phones have more storage and battery, but none has this screen at this size and this processor. Something has to give. At $259 or $299 we could have a phone that does it all, but that would be a low volume phone since there are not many of us enthusiasts willing to pay a premium price for a premium product. Consumers are cheap and anything above $199 is not viable - and the Nexus 4 is a different animal without LTE so apples to oranges.

    +1! HTC and Verizon really screwed up. Ok, I understand the sd card deal, but why not 32 gigs of internal like my gnex?

    He IS keeping it civil. Defending HTC's weak responses to our complaints like they're paying him or something is kinda annoying.. And taking shots at our vice-prez was also unnecessary. So tell whoever he responded to, to keep it civil. Thanks.

    1. They said because they confused customers, but what's confusing about it? You pop in a card, it asks if you want to save media to the card or internal storage. Just that simple.

    2. If Google takes the feature out, they no longer have a standard way of implementing it, so once again it's Google's fault and their bad decision.

    3. How is removing 2 of your functional,useful advantages over the competition (Apple) ever a good idea?

    Android fanboys these days are hypocrites. As bad as they bashed Apple for no extended storage and a non removable battery, now they're using the same reasoning to defend android for doing the same. Removing those features was a bad move, period. Then as well as now

    I believe the majority of us believe that HTC's response is B.S., and I don't think we're a bunch of dummies. I'm not a tech genius, but I know when someone is bullsh*tting me.. and that's exactly what HTC is doing. The handful of you know-it-alls can defend HTC all you want, but the fact is that customers want more storage options. If we continue to let this slide then more and more phones will be released with less storage options and the "cloud" being pushed upon us, forcing us to spend more money on data. I'm only just entering into my 2nd year with Verizon so I doubt I'll be upgrading already. I would love to go pre-paid with a Nexus and have the latest updates but even THAT has limited storage, but better data plans so it doesn't hurt the pocket as much. If the DNA had a 4.7" screen with 32GB internal storage it would be a better deal IMO..

    Sorry for the language boys and girls... but this SD card and battery thing is really pissing me off! Cloud Storage doesn't do me a damn bit of good without unlimited data through Version now... watch only two movies and my ing data allowance is gone for the month!!

    Telling someone to get a life is not keeping it civil. He has every right to voice his opinion just like SuperJon does. Just because they have differing opinions is no reason to tell someone to get a life.

    LOL...come on. The J Butterfly has an SD card slot and it's exactly the same phone in all other respects.

    The Razr MAXX HD has 32g + Sd card + 3300 mah battery, all in a smaller package than the DNA. Plus from what I'm reading, it's the closest to a pure android experience outside of the Nexus phones. And built like a tank. Never thought I would leave HTC for Moto but the time has come....

    Exactly. Not only that but many apps, like Poweramp that I use for my music player, don't have support for cloud storage.

    Look, I've been as big an HTC fan as anyone and was anxiously awaiting this phone. But people are just fooling themselves to call it any more than a disappointment. 11g of usable memory is just not acceptable on a top line phone these days. Not when there are so many other better options out there. And to try and justify it by saying we all need to move to cloud storage anyway is laughable.

    Jerry amen. The implementation of SD-Cards specifically on Samsung devices make them completely useless for app storage.

    This is not totally true, you can connect external media via a usb dongle. see Amazon.com: SANOXY Micro USB Host Mode OTG Cable Flash Drive SD T-Flash Card Adapter FOR Samsung GT-i9100 i9100 Galaxy S II 2 GT-N7000 Galaxy Note: Cell Phones & Accessories

    The no SD card brings the DNA closer in configuration to Nexus devices, which, should make it easier for HTC push out updates. IMO, the 16 GB limit was to bring the phone within a certain price point, a more expensive 32 GB version may come later, if there is market demand for it.

    I understand your thought there but I don't agree 100%. Samsung phones do well because they have the bells and whistles....removable batteries, nice big screens, SD. I doubt the S3 sales would be as good as they are without these things. The fact is, people like to have options and this is one reason why people move from Apple to Android. The sad thing is many Android phone makers are going the way of Apple....non removable batteries, no SD, less storage options etc ....actually iphone has more storage options since its available in 16, 32, 64. I just hope this isn't some new trend with limiting our choices.
