Droid Life Q&A Session: Volume 5

The last few weeks have been jam-packed with announcements from almost every major mobile tech player you can think of. We were introduced to new RAZRs from Motorola, the first Windows 8 phones from Nokia, a new iPhone, and new Kindles. This week, the fun isn’t stopping as Motorola and Intel will take the stage in London tomorrow to unveil their first product. Then LG and Qualcomm will get on stage together in NYC followed by HTC a day later. The back-to-school Fall blast is officially underway, and we couldn’t be more excited.

So what better way to keep things rolling than with the 5th edition of our DL Q&A sessions? For those new to this feature, think of it as your opportunity to ask the DL staff anything that comes to mind. It could be about all of the smartphone madness that we have covered over the last couple of weeks, what we are expecting from this week, or what we had for dinner last night. It’s an open atmosphere.

At the end of the week, we’ll grab a handful of questions and let the team take to answering them. Ready? Drop in the comments and let us know what’s on your mind.

  • Any chance of a Google Nexus 10 on the way? And will it be any different from the the Nexus 7?

  • matt d

    With all the phones that are coming out now, which phone on Verizon is the most appealing? Which device is most worthy of being someone’s daily driver (right combination of performance, hardware, and battery life)?

    So glad to see this today, I just thought of a question yesterday and was hoping to ask it soon. So, if you could/had to, what carrier would you switch to from Verizon?

    i know there are rumors of different oems making their own version of the next nexus phone to be released this fall. this had me thinking, do you think we’ll ever see google team up with multiple oems to make one badass nexus phone? for example, have samsung be involved with the design/form factor, have motorola deal with the hardware, another company focus on the camera, while google can focus on the OS. that would seem like the ideal scenario to build a high quality nexus phone. don’t get me wrong, i love my gnex, but with all the problems people have been having, one has to think how they (google and the oem) can make a higher quality phone even if it is a developer phone.

  • How come none of us care about LG… even with the Optimus G with the best specs of any phone ever!! …I don’t want it, why?

  • DCX

    How does Windows 8 Phone look to you lately? Is it great for innovation, and do you see it as a viable competitor in the smartphone wars? The Nokia Lumia 920 is shaping to be one of the best phones of the year, and has impressed me far more than the i5 and the GS3 (but I’m not sure it will allow me to part with the Razr Maxx HD that I may grab – I am biased to Motorola Android phones, if not the GN)…

  • bpow

    Do you think the RAZR Maxx will receive 4.1?

  • Maimonea77

    Whill the HTC one x get jelllybean state side???

  • Should i upgrade in October and get the GS3 or wait for the next Nexus device? And has there been any word of a new Nexus device coming out by the end of this year

  • IntlGrizzly

    What do you think will be the best phone on Verizon at the end of the year?

  • What “psp style” android tablet do you recommend for portable gaming (i.e. Jxd s5110)?

  • Nick F’n Gage

    Kellex why do you always have such long fingernails?

  • George G

    Personally what OEM would you prefer for the next nexus phone? Also what do you think will happen in the tablet world when Microsoft releases the Surface tablet?

  • Hey It’s Franklin

    How can black people rise up, and over come?

  • geedee82

    Should I start Roddy White or Julio Jones tonight?

    • EricRees

      I’m down 10 points and banking on Julio to win me my game tonight.

    • Right now I am 23 points down. Roddy is my only player left to play.
      I am hoping he has a great game.

  • carlisimo

    What should those of us who like smaller phones expect from Android manufacturers in the future?

  • Stew

    What do you guys look like?

    What’s your favorite device from the September craze? Nokia Lumia 920, RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD, HTC dlx/One X 5 as rumored, Galaxy Note 2, or even iPhone 5?

    How long do you think it will be before we see something from Motorola that will really make us say, “That’s very Google” or “Google Inspired and Designed”?

    Based on the most recent rumors (or lack thereof), what’s you guys’ take on the multiple Nexus situation and the future of Android?

    • Is it just me or do their commercials now seem very Google like.

  • Inquizitor

    Why do so many OEMs insist on pentile screens, and insist on larger screens at the cost of pixel density? Wouldn’t a company like HTC or Samsung do better by having a beautiful Super AMOLED HD that’s around 4 inches with a ppi that destroys “Retina display” from a marketing angle?

    HTC had the Rezound with a higher density than the 4/4S which also wasn’t pentile, yet didn’t advertise at all. I assumed it was because Verizon favored the Droid RAZR, but I haven’t seen any Android phones since with a similar screen.

  • How do you think Android will evolve in 2013?
    How can Android be improved for Key Lime Pie/the next release?
