I asked a follow-up question in the libmtp bug report of the developer 
and was told that I could edit the /lib/udev/rules.d/69-mtp.rules file 
to add an entry for my phone to work around this with the current libmtp 
1.1.6 in trusty.  I did so and my phone is now mounted, but I still get 
some messages:

Device 0 (VID=1004 and PID=622a) is UNKNOWN.
Please report this VID/PID and the device model to the libmtp 
development team
Unable to open ~/.mtpz-data for reading, MTPZ disabled.Android device 
detected, assigning default bug flags
Error 1: Get Storage information failed.
Received event PTP_EC_StoreAdded in session 1

A file folder for it opens on the desktop and I can browse the files, 
but the mountpoint is:


Is there something I missed somewhere that can make this a bit 
"cleaner"?  I would have expected to see the manufacturer and model in 
some form, not what I see here.
