Let me start by stating emphatically that I absolutely "love" Koodo and have no intention of switching to any other service provider!
The time is fast approaching for me to upgrade my Koodo cellphone. My current phone has been paid off on the TAB and I now have the need/desire for more capabilities and versatility with my phone. Given the very positive customer reviews for the Moto G, I'm giving this phone some very serious consideration. However, I'm left wondering why Koodo has opted to supply the 8 GB version of the Moto G (1st Gen) and not the 16 GB model (also 1st Gen) or the 4G LTE model (also 1st Gen) which (in the case of the latter) is equipped with an expansion (microSD card) slot for up to 32 additional GB of memory. It should be noted that Fido, Rogers, Wind, and Vidiotron each provide 1st Gen Moto G cellphones which are not limited to 8 GB of memory. (see: http://www.motorola.ca/moto-g-ca-en/moto-g-ca-en.html
) By contrast, Koodo has decided to offer a consolation.gift of 50 GB of free Google Drive storage - while the population of the entire planet already qualifies for sizable free cloud storage and students have free "unlimited" storage (see: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2469529,00.asp
) At this point in time, with the plethora of apps which are now available, 8 GB of storage simply isn't enough. As well, cloud storage does not remedy the drawback of paltry memory being available for the use of Android apps from Google Play. If Koodo began offering a Moto G (1st Gen) cellphone with enhanced memory capabilities, it is doubtful if the Canadian market would not tolerate a slight increase in the price point. A quick scan of the customer reviews for this phone on Koodo's website would seem to validate this supposition. Users want more memory in the Moto G (either 16 GB of internal memory or else a microSD card slot). Any ideas regarding the mindset of Koodo regarding this observation? Let me close by stating emphatically that I absolutely "love" Koodo and have no intention of switching to any other service provider!
