    Ask yourself this... If you were to go outside and pick SGS3 owners at random, what percentage would know how big their SD card is? My guess would be a pretty damn small percentage.

    The overwhelming majority of people are not like us.
    This.

    Haha, gotta love it. First of all he says that manufacturers are moving away from removable storage. Then, when confronted with the clear evidence to the contrary - that 8 of the top 10 selling Android handsets have removable storage - then he flip flops to "it proves nothing really."

    Yeah, there's no quality to the content he contributes.

    Obviously I do not agree with him this time around, JHBThree does contribute to this community fairly regularly. He just happens to have a different view this time around.

    Yeah and I been there done that earlier this year for a paper. Got over 350 students and professors answer my questions and *gasp* nearly all of them either don't know or care beyond the "fun" things their phone can do. The people who were more knowledgeable about their phones pretty much repeated the same things you read on sites like these daily like removable batteries, SD cards, non pentile screens and, stock Android.

    Verizon told HTC to leave the sd out! They want everyone to use WiFi more so in turn they will use less of their bandwidth!

    They don't want people to use WiFi. They want them to use their network and get charged overages. Tiered data makes it easy for them to profit on people streaming from the cloud. Since Verizon and HTC developed this phone together and Verizon had a bigger hand in it than most phones it releases it stands to reason that they designed it with 16gb in order to make more money. That's just what Verizon does.

    My refusal to bet on a stupid argument has no bearing on whether I'm right or wrong. You're just not worth the money.
    haha. Making a bet is usually the last line of defense.

    You do have a choice. Buy a different device.
    Do you feel the need to state the obvious? He said he will not buy this phone and stated the reason why. Your comment is irrelevant.

    Most would know because it was sold without one. IF you have an SD card in your SGS3, you bought it and put it there. So you would know!

    I wonder what percentage of users actually added an SD card to their Galaxy S III.

    I wonder how many bought the 32gig SGS3 vs the 16gig model?

    An earlier comments on this thread spoke of the $199 price point as an explanation for the 16gig DNA. The SGS3 was/is $50 more for the 32gig. Why wasn't that done for the DNA?

    I would have considered the DNA with 32gig, but 16? NOPE!

    IMO, Non expandable storage works for apple so well because of this 2 reason:
    1. Customer have no choice, if they want iOS they have to pick iPhone.
    2. Their applications are sandboxed, data cannot pass freely between apps. (can have restricted access thou) - having the ability to expand storage with this design can be 'confusing', because you need to take into account what to do if the user pull out his sd card when he exceeded his own local storage? - Pretty much like the move2sd for android.

    For android, expandable storage works so well because of :
    1. All applications share the same local data, it is reasonable to have expansion, much like a PC.
    2. sd card performance is on par with internal storage nowadays, the slight drop means nothing, you can listen to music.. edit doc.. video all fine. Gone are the days of android 2.3 512mb move2d phones.

    Rather then thinking of "It is enough for most ppl, do not need to include", they should be thinking "It is enough for most ppl, include anyways."

    I'd stayed away from this thread for some time, I took the time to read it today since I'm off for the holiday and will be picking up the phone tomorrow (2 actually).
    This thread is a example where a few try to speak for the many, and contradict each other ad nausium. The web and these forums can be of great help to many but way too often get polluted.
    No one should speak for others, why they buy a phone, what features they use and only speak of their own needs and how those may help others, ones not so tech oriented.
    alas I'm not the forum police but if we use these constructively for all, all will benefit a great deal (yes I know i'm off topic ;-)

    That's actually true! I said it the entire time.....Verizon WANTS to push its users to PAY for THEIR cloud services. Verizon offers 500mb free, you have to pay for more. There are free alternatives out there. Personally, I think it sucks!

    agree 100%, a co-worker came to me a few weeks back cause she was unable to download new apps and turns out her internal memory is full and she does not even have a sd card in the phone. when asked, she said she doesn't know anything about it. HAHA.

    Correction. Samsung's phones are successful in spite of the half baked SD card they have present, but fail to support in the OS.
    /sdcard
    /sdcard0
    /sdcard-ext

    Good luck getting that to work with 4.2 :-/
    So, we can expect that the microSD slot in the new Galaxy S4 is not going to work, then? Or maybe it's not really coming with 4.2 on it?
