Seriously. No moto-maker. No 32GB internal. No buying direct unlock. Why treat Canadians like we're not worthy?

Well it has a microSD slot so I think the extra built in storage is a hit superfluous.

I think your complaint should be taken up with Motorola for not offering Moto Maker or directly purchased/unlocked versions in Canada.

I agree with the anger over not offering the 32gb model since a Micro SD CARD is only good for photos, videos and music and doesn't allow for more than a tiny percentage of an app or game to be moved to the external storage and even then it's only some apps and games that a portion can be moved to the SD Card. With good games being 1-3gb each and the OS taking like 4gb a 16gb device is near worthless for many.

Koodo excites ppl with announcements of devices and then cripples the possible sales with moves such as this and doesn't know why certain devices don't sell well, I just don't get it I really don't.

Koodo offers the lower end Moto models like the G and E so they have those ppl covered so offering this higher end device in just 16gb isn't a good move at all I mean it makes no sense as they're truly not offering the diversity of devices they should and hitting a mark for every buyer.

I would argue that a lot of customers want phones that are $0 on the tab, and if they launched the 32gb version it wouldn't fall into that. As for moto maker I think that's more of a Motorola thing.

So you don't think ppl would pay an extra $50 to have a much more diverse experience with the double the storage.... I'm sure most would.

Fingers-cross that 32GB version will come out later in the year. But won't wait long. If there is 32 GB version for Moto X Style, I'am off to US bestbuy and get one.
