Dodgy apps kill our phones

Written by Nick Farell

Motorola moans
Motorola's CEO Sanjay Jha has been moaning that software peddled on the Open Android store has caused his phones to break.

Jha claims that the bulk of returned Motorola phones are the result of applications that cause performance problems. Of all the Motorola Android devices that are returned, 70 percent come back because applications affect performance.

While Google removes malicious apps, there is no mechanism for ensuring that applications perform efficiently. They are not tested for  power consumption and CPU use and that can cause a phone to become useless, he muttered.

Still he thinks that Android and its software is still the way to go. He just thinks that there are a few teething problems as the phones start to become more popular.

Waiting for the day where a bloke dies because he couldn't call the emergency because his super dupper smartphone was locked down with to many crappy apps that it made impossible to make any calls.

People just don't learn! A phone is a phone what do you do with a phone? PHONE CALLS!

Well I'm glad to say this will never effect me, as I tend to stay *away* from phone companies that lock bootloaders, and try and keep people in the dark.

All companies try, people just find a way around it.

Moto is a good brand but sometime it think it's Apple. $800 for a device just won't fly.

They made that horrid app called MOTO BLUR that you cannot remove and are forced to use to do the same thing that the OS already does for you -_-... Thanks motorola for charging 500 bucks for phones that are already ruined before you ever sell them. I know none of the companies are perfect and each phone has a flaw or two but I have never seen phones so slow or loaded down from the factory. *face palm*
