I realize that I'm writing this for maybe two or three other forum members who, like myself, use Linux as their primary desktop OS. But this freedom beard would be remiss if he didn't relate an odd experience with the new Rogers LTE Moto G
This latest version of the G has only 8GB of onboard storage, but compensates for that with a micro SD card slot. For Linux users this should be great news; this
Linux user has had challenges with file transfers between phone and computer ever since Ice Cream Sandwich and the introduction of MTP
. It's not a huge deal by any means, and MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) has steadily improved in updates to Ubuntu
and its derivatives. Most times my Nexus 5 will mount on my Linux Mint
desktop just fine; for larger file transfers, like TWRP backups and such, I use FTP on my local network.
With the Moto G and a micro SD card it's a bit of a different story.
