Instead, certain brand (especially its bar-shaped phones) is famous for capturing all the background noise so the person's voice can't be heard?

"best voice quality" haha - this is just a chip dude - just a freaking chip that costs 2-3 bucks, made in china, taiwan or indonesia. this phone is "please, richmen, give us your money fast cause we're sinking hard"

who is managing this company? he should be fired and kicked hard because he's making dumb decisions one after another - motorola is sinking because of one or some dumb people in business suits. this company is like an apotheosis of the global economy declination.

This is the dumbest policy ever. The same thing applies if I buy a Bentley and I am free to dispose of it to whoever I deem fit. Moto's accelerating its EOL process.

I know why...

1. use normal quality material for the phone -> low cost.
Can earn back the cost with just selling a few units.

2. How to make people buy?
Make an agreement like .. cannot sell the unit after purchase.
Those who hate the agreement will purposely buy the unit and sell off to prove to Motorola that their so call "agreement" is worthless.

This is a win win situation for them.
-earn money with low cost high return.
-promote the unit... cause Motorola is the first to implement such rules and everyone else are paying notice and so eagerly to comment on it and spreading the news for them.

hehe just kidding.. sorry.

this device is good but not the best!2000$ is so expensive for a device like this!so it's reasonable AURA can't compare with other luxurious brands like Nokia 8800 series or Vertu's worth is only about 600$

im not so sure if they just wanted to waste profits of producing this phone.
