    with the new YouTube download options and ever increasing resolutions micro sd cards will soon to be a must have again.

    it isn't 2016 yet so Samsung has still time to fix their mistakes from this year and get back some respect

    also for only 149 bucks the sd 200 gigabyte cards are now becoming mainstream so sd cards are going nowhere

    It's already been mentioned Samsung won't add SDCARD or Removable battery and all Androids are going that road just a matter of Time, LG G5 soon to come out won't have sdcard or removable battery!

    Has Samsung made an official announcement that they won't be adding the sd card slot or removable battery to their phones next year? Regarding all the other Androids, didn't LG recently released and kept both features for their new line, the LG V10?

    ETA: I forgot to add the new HTC One A9 has a sd card slot. Thanks to updates in Android Marshmallow, you can mount an external card as though it's built-in storage, allowing you to store all apps and games, and of course pics and videos.

    As for Samsung, I would like to see the Note Series revert to have a removable back option, but also have a full body metal/glass variant. The Note series after all is a production phone as initially intended.

    source? Because HTC, Sony, LG and Huawei all are offering an sd card slot.

    I believe we will see the return of the micro SD cards with Samsung in the form of an SD card tray. Just what I think.

    thanks did that an the only thing I found out is that the try an unibody design which is stupid because the G4 was the best phone of 2015 just needed a better testing and more powerful cpu.

    anyhow we'll see what Samsung does but if they are smart they are bringing two of their usp back

    It's easy enough to add an sd card tray, just like the sim card tray. The same removal pin operates both. I remember having that feature on a Blackberry phone, about five or six years ago.

    I've never had one go bad, even held on to some for years through many phones. BUT.. I've seen major issues from others when their card goes bad.
    Agree. I have a SanDisk MP3 player with a micro SD card and use it a lot to help me sleep. I bought this before the first android phone came out, when I switched to that.

    I just found a flash stick with a document from 2007. The documents opened fine.

    Just found the Dash sd card reader on line, at Amazon. This beauty goes on your keyring. Plug it into the sd slot on the bottom of the phone, and the phone reads, and can transfer data. It holds up to 200gbs. of space. This is what i was looking for. IMHO, buying the Note 4 now, is taking a step backward. The Note 5 is faster, and now, with this little goodie, i can transfer files on the go. So, with the card reader, and the new fast charger, you get a "Note 4" on steroids.

    I get what you mean, but that Dash sd card or similar devices don't allow for simultaneous functions. For example, we can't watch a movie stored in that device while charging our Note 5. Watching a movie on our smartphones eats up a lot of battery power, so our Note 4 comes handy, just remove the back and pop in a new battery, hassle free. Besides, wouldn't we want a build in SD card slot like the Note 4 than to have a sticking-out device attached to our phones? But I agree with you, these devices are the best for our Note 5 should we need extra external storage, as a compromise.

    I understand where you are coming from. Every phone i've ever had, except for my Nexus 5, had the ext sd card capability. For me, i just can't see buying "last year's" phone, when the newer one is already out. I also understand that the Note 5 is much faster than the 4, due to a better processor. I don't watch movies or play games that are on the phone, so the battery draining won't be an issue for me. I do have over 8gbs. of music on my phone(LG G3), but it's all on the google music app. Right now, all my files for work are on my google drive app, so once again, no lost phone space. I need a Note, and i don't feel like waiting for the 6. Besides, there's no guarantee that Samsung will take those two features from the 4, and put them back into the 6. History shows that they do what they want, not what the consumers wants.

    So, last night i transferred everything from my ext. sd card to my internal storage (i have a 32gb LG G3). It just barely fit, maybe. But, with the 64gb Note 5, i'll have more than enough space. Thanks to Google, i have their Drive & Play Music apps, so i will be good to go, when i purchase my Note. Now, if they had a 128gb model, i would have gotten that one. A little paranoia is good for you. HaHa.

    Yes, I agree the onboard storage out of the box is always the best option, but for some consumers it's much more cost effective to buy phones with an optional sd card slot. These days, we can buy a top brand 128gb sd card for $45! I just read an article that the S7 for early next year may bring back the sd card option. We shall see.

    Well, if Samsung makes a Note 6 with the ext. sd card option, and maybe a stronger s-pen, i would definitely be interested.

    See the latest phones from Motorola, LG, and HTC.

    In the case of Motorola and HTC, they've been bringing support back for expandable memory.

    But, has that always been a reliable source? If not, just take it as another rumor and wait until Samsung officially announces their new product line.

    No sources, no evidence and no logic behind the claims. I'd say indefinitely is not credible and definitely isn't journalism.

    OK, let's assume that this rumor is true. Let's also assume that they add that feature to the Note 6. I'd have to wait about a year for that phone to hit AT&T. Sorry, but i'm not prepared to wait almost a year for a new phone.

    Here's their source: Galaxy S7, un "flat" da 5.2" ed un edge da 5.7". Tornerà la microSD | Rumor - HDblog.it
    Still no original source or evidence, but still better than "meh, we think it maybe might be possible in a theoretical sense, perhaps".
