    Probably pricing issues. Will it come to future phones? Most likely, with its popularity the cost will go down and im sure it`ll be the next "must have" feature.

    We should keep in mind that the Nexus products have always been intended to be affordable. Throwing a 4K camera at this time would make it significantly more expensive, and 4K certainly isn't an industry standard yet.

    Stop asking these hard questions that have lots of common sense attached to them. 😃

    How about this for a question...... With memory so compact and ridiculously inexpensive, why does the N5 only come with a max option of 32 GB?

    Here's a more pertinent question. Why doesn't the Nexus 5 come with a microSD slot?

    Because Android doesn't have native support for external SD cards. All of the devices that do support SD cards need additional code to fool the system, and it doesn't always work well (ahem, Samsung).

    But Android USED to natively support microSD cards. I remember back on 2.3 I could easily install apps onto an SD card and it would work just fine. Why was this feature taken out?

    And the code can be easily implemented again. On my old Motorola phone with Android 4.0 I changed the settings so the external storage was viewed as the internal storage, and the internal storage was viewed as the external. POOF, 64 GB of internal storage, with no complications whatsoever.

    Edit: Screenshot as proof.

    That's getting above my pay grade and technical know-how, but I suspect it had to do with how Android abandoned the old way of partitioning memory into Application Storage, Internal Storage, and External Storage, and changed to one unified Internal Storage (it was either when ICS or Jellybean came out).

    I've had 0 problems with any of my cards in Hydro and F7 and a cheap tablet that lasted a year. It's not that Android can't handle it, it's that certain companies don't want Android to handle it.
