Re: [tlug] Smart phone vs Tablet (and SD cards)

The Xperia Z2 has an accessible SD slot behind one of the water-resistant covers. And the battery seems capable of lasting a couple of days with moderate use.

Didn't think that was allowed by Google.

Ah, that is why! When you have time (and hoping this is not too far
off-topic for TLUG), I'd love to hear pros/cons/how-tos of rooting a
Nexus 7.

Yes, that is the downside. Just getting a phone/tablet that allows the
SD card feels like something I should be grateful; asking for it to be
easy to get to just feels greedy. ;-)
