I have been getting familiar with Android and smart phones for the past year. I didn't realize when I first got mine that one couldn't update the OS as a routine matter and I haven't rooted my phone, an LG Marquee.
Are Nexus phones the only phones that get automatic updates? Should I care that I am running version 2.3.4, which apparently will never get upgraded by the mfg or the carrier?
Second question, I have been looking at new phones like the HTC One, Nexus and Moto X. I want a phone that accepts a microsd card and am amazed that so many of the latest and greatest don't offer that. It would appear that the Samsung Galaxy is going to be my best choice. I have about 60gb of music on my current card. Anyone have any idea why the manufacturers seem to be neglecting this?
