    I'm surprised this is even any speculation - I haven't seen anything that would suggest they would now remove the microSD card slot from the GS8 series. It returned with the GS7 and Note7 with 64GB after backlash from the GS6 and Note5. The last thing Samsung would want to do is to add a reason back on criticism of the GS8. The only way I would buy it without a microSD card is if it had at least 128GB storage like the GS6 had.

    As long as it has 64GB minimum, not having a SD slot would not be a deal breaker for me. That is the minimum onboard storage for me to go without.

    I can't see them taking off the SD slot again. They removed it in the 6 generation and then put it back for the 7s (although they didn't go with Google-standard handling of SD's. You don't have the "merge with local storage option."

    I use an S5 with 16gb with an 8gb SD card (Yeah I do not need much).

    I would not even need an SD card until I upgrade S8.

    Not unless the base model had 256 GB of storage.

    Honestly it would depend on the size options they provide. I have the S7 currently with a 64GB SD card in it, and am nowhere near capacity. So if there was a 128GB option, I would consider it.

    64GB seems adequate today, but then so did 40 Mb when I bought my first computer. Always ensure that there is plenty of capacity for expansion! I like the slot! Go big or go home!

    Probably not. 64gb won't cut it for me and I'm not willing to pay an arm and a leg for more onboard storage.

    No problem with buying the S8 with no SD card as long as it has 64GB as its base model and not 32GB

    With 64 GB internal memory, it is not required. But it might be handy while installing a custom ROM!

    After the Note 5 I will never do a phone without a memory card slot. I just wish you could put anything and everything on the memory card.....

    I am not a big fan of expandable memory with not many apps that can be moved to the sd cards. I would be happy to pay more for onboard memory with a min capacity of 128 GB.

    I have a 128 gb Pixel xl which I can't wait to get rid of but that 128 gb is already down to 45. I have many many gbs of mp3 and flac files, ebooks and videos and I don't want them in the cloud. I want them on my phone. I have cloud accounts but I am not paying to store my own files and then have to use up data to access them, since generally I want them when I am out and not connected to wifi. I would never buy a phone without an sd slot again.

    64GB is enough for me. Short of that, I'd need/want an SD card. The phone would, otherwise, have to be amazing for that not to be a deal-breaker.

    64GB and no SD card won't cut it for me. I have over 70GB of stuff on my phone right now. Would prefer 128GB version but can l deal with 64GB plus SD card.
