    Not that I know of, but that doesn't mean that there can't be 128 GB Android phones. (If you parse my statement carefully, you'll see that I didn't say that there were 128 GB iPhones, just that Android phones could come in a range of storage options, like iPhones do, and one of those choices could even be 128 GB. Sorry for wording that so carelessly before.)
    Android already comes in 128gb The mx3 comes in 128gb built in storage. It is not available in the states however.

    Can't you plug a thumb drive to the Maxx? Or a USB/SD card adapter?

    i thought i would miss it coming from the razr maxx hd but i don't.

    what i do miss is the LED. i think it is more effective than the active display.

    overall i think the razr maxx HD is equal as a phone as the droid maxx and wish i did not do the upgrade.

    the bettery is better on the droid maxx but not significantly much.

    How long have you had the phone?

    At first, I didn't think the Active Display feature was all that great, but after a couple weeks with it, I started to see the light. I now view this as a must have on any future device I own. It's so efficient when it comes to quickly seeing your notifications and it also saves on battery considerably.

    about two months now.

    regarding the active display saving battery life, it really won't make that much of a difference if there was an LED in it's place just because the 3500 mah battery is so massive anyway.

    The difference between active display and the led is this, while an led may not use much battery, it only tells you that you have a notification, and that's it. Active display tells you what type of notification is there (Gmail, eBay, text, etc.) and in some cases gives you part of the text. With the new update to Touchless controls, you don't even have to be holding the phone. Say the OK Google Now and then say What's Up, and it audibly greets you, tells you the time, and reads off your notifications. This morning I got a text while in bed. I said the 2 phrases and it read my text to me without raising a finger. I'll have a hard time going back to the old led system other phones still use.

    As far as the SD card thing, you can either use a thumb drive with a USB On The Go cable, or a micro SD card reader like the one available from Meenova. It measures .8" x .9" x .3" with the cap on. Pop off the cap and there's a micro USB connector that plugs into the charging port. On the side there's a slot for a micro SD card. With it plugged in it sticks out about half an inch. It used to work fine stock, but after the 4.4 update it requires an app like Nexus Media Importer to recognize it. I've heard that with the 4.4.2 update (on the Moto X) there's a field in the storage settings that says mount USB drive, so they might've brought that functionality back. While I'd prefer a slot in the phone it will work. I just worry about having an external card readers connector snapping off in the charging port. With an internal slot, there's nothing hanging off to worry about.

    I prefer active display because it saves me half the time I press on the power button - mechanical things wear out sometimes. And the LED was never much of an improvement - the color was, like active display, showing only one notification unless you installed a RAM-using third party app anyway.

    I hope I never reach a point where I am too lazy to walk across a room to see what is flashing on my phone screen. (My phone is almost always in my pocket or within reach anyway.) The new "OK Google Now, what's new" update to touchless controls to read notifications waiting for you should solve the across the room problem anyway.

    It never ceases to amaze me when people say they prefer a led light to active notifications. It kind of like saying "I don't like those newfangled horseless carriages, I prefer my good ole' reliable horse." Some folks just don't like change of any kind. I work with some of those too. :-)

    Hey, I said I was still in bed! Anything that saves me from getting up before I need to.

    I look at it like this, when I am doing electronics work (soldering and circuit board work) or working on my car, it's nice not to have to drop everything to see if the notification is important and requires my immediate attention or not, without having to stop what I'm doing. In a way it's kind of like having a helper or assistant. Now if the Maxx could hold the solder or hand me tools, it'd be perfect. Maybe someday...

    The Maxx's SD card is located behind the rocker switch. To remove the switch and SD card you put your nail under the bottom middle of the rocker switch and put out. The switch will come out with the SD card in tow.

    That is the SIM card you are referring to, not the SD card.

    No SD card slot doesn't bother me one bit. Data connected phone = almost always connected to the cloud, so I feel little need to store huge libraries of information on my phone. I am glad to have more than the 16gb, but doubt I'll get even close to filling up the whole 32.
    The Droid Maxx DOES have a micro SD card slot. It is under the volume control. It will take up to a 32GB card.

    Maybe you are thinking of another Maxx phone? (Razr Maxx, Maxx HD)? The Droid Maxx (XT1080M) does not have an SD card slot.

    You're either talking about a different model, or confusing the SIM card with a microSD card.

    doogald is right - the XT1080M does not have a microSD slot.

    What do you mean by save? They are saved to the internal memory. Are you trying to get them off the phone and onto a new phone or computer?

    Cause you have multiple cloud services to pick from to sync your photos and data to. Most cost money, but they exist.

    You can plug external storage into the micro usb port. I've had no problem using an SD card reader via usb, a flash drive, or portable hard drive as long as they are the right file format.

    Bluetooth and Wi-Fi direct can move them to another phone.

    Plugging the phone into a computer would allow you to move data.

    There are plenty of options.

    Google Photos will even save them without counting against your free 15 GB of storage. Flickr I believe still gives you 1 TB free.

    There are plenty of options.
    Yep.
