I love monochrome for its ability to easily be seen in the sun, unlike so many OLED smartphones and regular back-lit LCD phones with poor visibility in the sun.
Look at the time on this thing. That is what I want to see. Big numbers.
Battery life will probably be excellent and reliability might also be excellent (at least reliability of the display should be).
Isn't what you're complaining about this:
That the world has different priorities to yours and that there seem to be different market segments that you just don't understand?
The industry will not move away from anything that there is still demand for, especially in developing countries and any person who wants a basic phone that's reliabl, easy to see in the sun and they don't need to pay too much for.
Good cheap phone for calling and texting in my opinion. plus it has radio
One more time, Motorola gets it all wrong. Announcing a Monocromathic phone when the entire industry is moving away from it...I guess they enjoy losing money. Way to go Motorola, they should have called it F4.
