With so many players on the market today, it's only natural for some makers to specialize in certain areas and survive off of those niches. Motorola, for example, has been consistently the most pragmatic of the bunch.
That's really not an overstatement. We see pragmatism on the company's part when it comes to software, with its light custom UI, and then in matters such as battery life — large cells at the expense of thinness. And as of today, we can add screen tech to the list, what with Motorola making its ShatterShield technology official with the new DROID Turbo 2. Motorola apparently worked on the tech for three whole years, laboring to bring to market a solution to the cracked screen epidemic. And with its five layers, the display stack is guaranteed by the company to survive four years.
And so while others chase increasingly meaningless numbers such as thinness, Motorola is arguably focusing on solving more serious problems. Do you think that's the way forward for the company? Or is it underrating the extent of the average Joe's enthrallment with fancy — if unpractical — design?
Do you think Motorola's pragmatic approach to making phones is the way forward for it?
Yes, Motorola is definitely onto something
Perhaps, but only as long as it continues to compete on the rest of the specs sheet
Unlikely, there doesn't seem to be a large enough group of discerning buyers to make this count
No, Motorola will be better off focusing on eye-catching design / more software features
