The Droid Life Q&A Session: Volume 2

Two weeks ago, we announced a new feature called the “Droid Life Q&A Session” which gave the DL community the chance to ask our team anything that they had been dying to get feedback on. While we toss out opinions and flavor here and there, we still try to do our best to provide you with straight up news. These Q&A sessions though, through your questions, are a way for us to let loose a bit and you inside the minds of this whacky team.

The idea here is pretty simple. You toss out questions in the comments, and by Friday, we grab a handful and answer them as a team. These could be industry related and about today’s Apple conference and why we laugh the entire time that their execs are on stage, if we think Google I/O will blow minds or be a dud, whether or not you should buy the Galaxy S3 now or later, etc. You could even go personal and ask Tim what he feeds his wolf pup for breakfast, what Eric’s favorite console game of all time is, if Ron has an opinion on Lindsay Lohan driving a rental Porsche and ramming it into the back of a semi, or how I decide to buy Matrix-like green-checkered shirts?

Ask away! Be sure to come back Friday to see which questions we have picked. To read Volume 1′s answers, check out this post.

    Is there any chance (no matter how small) that the Droid Razr HD will be available for pre-order by June 28? I’ve been trying to hold out for the Razr HD, but I will be getting screwed by the new data plans if i don’t upgrade by June 28. My problem is that I have 2 basic phones (for kids) that will be substantially increasing in price if I go to new shared data. If there’s no chance, I will be going with Razr Maxx or GS3.

    2 Unlimited Data Questions:

    1. I have a S3 on order with a local independent VZW authorized reseller. I have paid for it in full $199 but I didn’t sign anything. Do you think I will be able to stay grandfathered in for my unlimited data?

    2. We are on a family plan with 4 dumb phones and my smart phone. If I am able to hang on to my unlimited what will happen we start start upgrading the dumb phones as they come due/start dying. If they stay with dumb phones will that force me onto the new Share Everything plan?

    The Galaxy Nexus is 6 months old, nearly to the day. Before we know it, rumors of the next Galaxy phone will be starting to stir. Do you have any predictions or things you’d like to see in the next phone?

    What are some sites with good prices on unsubsidized phones on Verizon?

    Do you think the slider is a dying breed? With no substantial rumors of a Droid 5, is the Droid 4 the last of the higher-powered sliders that we’ll see?

    Should i buy a SIII right now?? i dont like the one x as its processor is beaten by the snapdragon s4 ,doesnt have a sd card slot and no matter what even 100gb of dropbox storage cant help me and kellex also posted some videos about sense 4on the one x and i agree with his opinion on thinking that sense 4 is slow inspite of a quad-core processor with a fifth companion core.Or should i just wait until june 27 when the Google I/O starts and they release the 5 nexus devices.

    What exactly is holding back Android tablets from beating out the iPad in the market? Common explanations I’ve seen include lack of tablet apps, poor optimization of Android for tablets/poor tablet UI, and inferior screen. I think those are all valid points, especially considering all the budget tablets out there. However, I think the biggest problem is marketing or lack thereof. The only TV ads I’ve seen for Android tablets are for the Kindle Fire, Galaxy Tab, Nook Color, and maybe the Galaxy Note if you count that as a tablet. Aside from Samsung’s Superbowl ad and a couple weeks after the game, those ads are/were relatively rare. When each version of the iPad came out, I couldn’t go one commercial break without seeing an ad for the iPad and this lasted much longer. I think more people would buy Android tablets if they knew they existed and if they knew what they can do.

    I am a loyal multiple times a day reader of Droidlife and I have to know, what is is the focus of the two sites (droidlife and an.droidlife)? I was under under the impression before droidlife was focused focused on the DROID brand and android life was android everything else. Obviously this isn’t the case.
