    Carrying data on memory cards does have its potential drawbacks, especially if you travel
    internationally.

    The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement has the right to detain any electronic device
    with internal/external memory anytime you cross the border.
    I'm not sure what you are saying here.

    You say that they have the right to detain any device with internal or external memory, but you earlier said this was a drawback for SD cards. SO, if you buy an HTC 1 and have no memory card, they can still detain the device. What's the drawback of a SD card, then? How does that change any exposure to data review? So, you put all your data into the internal memory, and they look at that anyway, accepting as a given your statement of law, which I've not had a chance to review.

    BTW, I travel internationally a lot. Not once has this ever happened. (Nor do I particularly have anything to hide, but that's another story.)


    But they'll only find uses if it's there. They may not demand it.
    There are so many things that I don't agree with in your rebuttal, this understanding of how extra space gets created and becomes a marketing tool just being one of them. Extra space gets created first and foremost by software and media makers' demand for it. They find uses for it. Like allowing consumers to bring entire movies with them. Then, there's a need and a demand follows. No surprise, most people demanding lots of space these days are people with tons of photos, videos and mp3s. Media junkies.

    Your recital of how damaging it is to have SD card slots notwithstanding, the truth is that there is little downside to offering an SD card slot and quite a lot to gain for both consumers and manufacturers. And as an earlier post said, it's about the economics, meaning raking in $$$. Simply put, if someone can distinguish their devices from everyone's else's, someone will do it. And that, as I said, is why HTC is now again coming out with a device that DOES have SD card slots. Think they weren't hurt by failing to have one in the ONE? I think they clearly were. I know, despite having been an HTC customer, I automatically disqualified the ONE in my upgrade search. Wouldn't even look at it. Economics also has another slant to it that I mentioned---I think SD card space will be cheaper and easier than internal memory for a long time. Plus, when people go to buy a new phone, already expensive, and another $150 or whatever is added on to it to get the massive memory storage upgrade that they want, they may balk. Particularly when it comes all at once. Buying a card, however, that you can keep for half the price and flip into each upgraded phone you get every year or whatever--now, that's a good deal. Far more cost effective and far more efficient, saving not only money but time in setting up new devices.

    I could go on, but I'm repeating myself. There are simply too many imperatives, from tech issues to market economics, that logically lead to SD card slots to ever think they are disappearing in any foreseeable future. The Apple model is exactly why I buy Android. If you want the last word, you can have it.

    couldn't agree with you more!

    Sams can be said about non-removable phone batteries. The manufacturers(iPhone, HTC, Motorola)
    claim non-removable batteries make the phones thinner by 1mm or 2mm. Can most people really
    tell the difference? I think not. The manufacturers are hoping that you buy a new phone once your
    non-removable battery starts to die. Makes perfect financial sense to me.
    One of the reasons I've always hated iPhones. It pains me to see android devices going that route. Meanwhile Sumsung didn't buy into it and was able to pull away from apple in the marketplace. They became the proverbial iPhone killer with a replaceable battery and an SD slot. So isn't it possible that consumers just might want these options? Also my S4 is thin enough and I can still toss another battery in when I'm watching movies on a cross country flight (stored on my SD card).

    Long story short(er), you're making a lot of arguments for why we will get more storage in the future, but no real solid arguments for why that storage needs to be removable.
    Scenario #1 - Lets say I have a 64 GB phone and 80 GB of music and video (and growing) what do I do? The cloud? The cloud is great but I travel alot and want to listen to my music or watch said videos on a plane or a train so now I have to go through the inconvenience of downloading whatever I think I may want to listen to before hand to my phone. If my phone is is filled with other things like apps etc then what? Also I would have to find wifi because DL'ing it over the air would chew up a ton of data on my now capped data plan. So now I'm going over my data limit costing me $$ pus the costs of backing ALL of my media to the cloud, plus the ridiculous cost of my monthly plan and all of this inconvenience because I don't have an SD card slot. So lets say I use wifi on the plane or the train. I'm now shelling out an additonal $10 or so to use their service. All of this is costly and extremely inconvenient when I can have it right there - on my phone on an SD card.

    Scenario #2 - I get a new phone. All of my 80 GB of media is backed up on my SD card. Instead of simply popping the SD card out of the old phone and popping it into the new and viola its there!, I'm now without my music and videos because the new phone doesn't have the SD slot. So once again, I have to make sure I'm shelling out for cloud service to support that amount of storage (in addition to my monthly bill). That may be fine for some but this sh** can get expensive and for most people (with kids etc) the costs add up. I then have to go through the task of dl'ing stuff again to listen to offline because of data caps, areas with no data etc. It's simply not as convenient.

    These may not be "solid" arguments for you, but they are solid to me.

    Yeah, as long as they still offered the removable battery. ...and I really would want a 64GB model if the SD card is to be gone. I can certainly live w/out an SD card but only if there's adequate on-board storage.

    In fact, that gives me an idea. Mophie and its clones should make a battery case that includes an SD card slot so HTC One owners and other sufferers can have that expansion too.

    Hmmm...how much would it cost them to add that option? Shouldn't add any noticable bulk either...I think it would be an attractive feature to many. Imagine 128GB of total storage. Still couldn't contain all many folks music and movies but it sure could hold a lot.

    I could be wrong but IMO if you're willing to spend $100 on a Mophie as they are today you'd be willing to spend $130 on a "Pro" model with an SD slot (if that feature is useful to you). I could be wrong. Perhaps there's a good reason Mophie and her clones haven't offered this.

    Its a healthy discussion on the future of SD storage in phones. The OPs poll was to gage the importance of this feature in our current S4s. I actually enjoy this thread.

    But in the time frame we're talking about a 64GB phone will be the low end. Remember that storage will have quadrupled in three years and 16GB is considered too small for a baseline phone by some. So if 64GB is the top end now, 256GB will be the top end in three years. Your 80GB of media will fit on there just fine, no need to pay for a cloud service.

    Scenario #2 - I get a new phone. All of my 80 GB of media is backed up on my SD card. Instead of simply popping the SD card out of the old phone and popping it into the new and viola its there!, I'm now without my music and videos because the new phone doesn't have the SD slot.

    If you're saying that the only place you have your music stored is a microSD card then whether or not your new phone will have a microSD card should be the least of your worries. You really should worry about what happens if your card gets damaged or corrupt. You'll have lost all of that media.

    The fact is you'll have your media stored somewhere else. Granted, downloading music from your PC to your phone might take a little while, but an overnight sync once every two years is hardly a major inconvenience. There is no need to pay for a cloud service. I never suggested that would ever be necessary. As long as you're OK with synching at home (which you apparently are already if you are totally against cloud services) then you don't need one at all. Your home PC is your "cloud."

    So the only benefit anyone has shown of removable storage is not having to sync one time every two years. How many people are willing to spend money for that? That's the question the phone manufacturers will ask once internal storage gets large enough, which I'm predicting will happen in the next few years.

    The cloud has nothing to do with customer convenience and everything strategically to do with content control, data mining and busting data caps, for the masses that have them (a lot do, even with wifi).

    I support Samsung and other OEs that offer sd and OTG storage. Okay, I do have an iPod 5, but it is 64gb and an iPad 4 that is 128gb- though local storage is there.

    The one thing about cloud is that is it truly safe? Especially with the PRISM thing with the Government...that has always been my issue with cloud storage is that its not private. There is no privacy in it, no matter what claims any company says. Also all your information is being relied on someone else to take care of....so say their servers go down for some reason (which happened with Instagram during the hurricane i believe 2 yrs ago), then what???? lol
    How many people actually lost data in the Instagram outage? Was the data wiped out or was it just not available for a couple weeks? I remember it being the latter. I'll bet that if you had a contest to see who can find a person who lost data off an SD card becasue of a hardware failure the winner would accomplish it on the order of seconds. It doesn't take a massive natural disaster for it to happen either. You just have to drop your phone at the wrong time, pull out a USB cable at the wrong time or be unlucky. If you did the same thing for a cloud storage company I'm not sure how long it would take. Those companies have redundant storage arrays in different parts of the country. They don't lose data. A house fire can destroy all of you data and backups. In 2010 there were 348,000 house fires in the US:

    CDC - Fire Deaths and Injuries: Fact Sheet

    What would it take for Dropbox to lose my data? Whatever it is, does it happen more or less than 348,000 times per year?

    Either way, who says you have to rely on an outside company? A simple Google search gives ways to set up a personal cloud for minimal to no cost. Granted you'll be in danger of the house fire scenario that way but in reality the stuff you really need protected can be stored on flash drives in redundant locations as well.

    Sadly, very few phones have an option for 64GB onboard today. I can only surmise that's because demand has been low. If I could buy a top-end phone (that I liked) with 64-128GB I'd be all over it. However the 32GB S4 I'm using and its 64GB Sandisk Extreme are adequate for now. :screwy:

    No one has lost data with the Instagram thing, but I remember when MegaUpload was shut down, every user lost their uploaded media
    And yeah I'd rather not pay monthly for cloud storage
    And yeah, I know it is unlikely for their servers to go down, and I'm sure they back them up at data centers, but you still have no control over whats done with them, or with its possibly being used for
    Me personally, I think SD Cards and External Hard Drives are a better storage system...I do use Dropbox for pictures and many other files, but I wouldn't solely rely on it is what I am saying

    Its all personal preference

    You shouldn't solely rely on anything. That's why it's called backup. If you have your PC, an external hard drive, your phone's internal storage and a cloud service (perhaps even a tablet as well) you'll not only have you data wherever you need it, you'll have it backed up several times over. Whether or not the phone storage is removable or not doesn't matter.

    What I don't think people can get past is that they think they "need" an external SD card because they need one now to get a useful amount of storage. They can't get past that the removable part isn't important, it's only storage that they need. Once the "storage" requirement is gone (i.e. once internal phone storage gets large enough) all you're left with is the "removable" part, which has very limited benefits and several down sides.

    Well believe me there are certain people who put everything they ever have on Cloud and use that only
    And the removable part has plenty of advantages over internal phone storage in my opinion, especially for media users like myself

    SD Cards allow you to access your media files without having to stream it or waste data, and also allow you to easily transfer files between different devices quickly
    Also if you are in a place with no internet connection, you cant access your cloud files
    Most other devices besides phones use SD Storage, and it makes it easier to transfer files
    Internal phone storage forces you to sacrifice space for music and apps in one, so if you were running out of space on the phone, you would have to delete apps or music just to make space
    SD Cards remove this annoying functionality...I used to have a Nexus and its something I will never go back to

    Like you said, I only use cloud as a backup just incase I lose things, but I keep all my music on my SD Card and all ym other stuff on an External HD

    No, more space removes that functionality. There is nothing special about the storage being removable. You also keep twisting what I'm saying to "cloud storage will mean we won't need more storage" and I have not claimed that. I'm saying that the extra internal storage we'll get will mean that we won't need removable storage. The trends in cloud storage and streaming media are just showing that demand for larger storage devices will go down, not that it will go away.

    The only advantage to removable storage is the transfer rate for really big transfers, and it assumes you only want the data on one device at a time. So if you need to move all of your media from one phone to another or a phone to a tablet in a short period of time then it's useful, but that situation is rare if you keep your devices synced. Also consider that there are other ways to accomplish that that don't involve a micro SD card and some of them have much faster transfer rates than what's possible with a micro SD card.

    More internal storage also means higher phone costs, which is another disadvantage
    MicroSD Cards are inexpensive easier to work with
    Also when you need to do a factory reset, or in some cases, something happens with the internal memory that ir crashes or something of that nature, or in somecases the phone freezes and wont turn on, you will lose everything
    SD Cards help with this by being able to remove them in case something like this happens

    As for Syncing....I had an iPhone, and constantly syncing with iTunes (or in this case, using Kies or another software to sync) is very time consuming in my experience

    I just think removable storage is much easier to work with, especially for media users. Other users may not need it, but I know I do
    I do agree that cloud storage is booming, and I think it has many many benefits. I just hope phone manufacturers decide to completely remove removable storage from their devices in order to be forces to use cloud services

    I have my media on a micro SD and also backed up to my PC as well as various cloud providers because I never want to lose it. You're assuming that phone storage will expand the way you are saying. I hope you're right but I never like to assume anything. That being said, even if it does expand to 256 GB in 3 years, I'll still be in the same situation as the amount of memory that I use for things like photos and HD video (3 kids will do that to you) will also grow. I wont remain at 80 GB forever.

    That's now. I'm predicting that memory pricing will mean that won't be an issue in the future.
    MicroSD Cards are inexpensive easier to work with
    Tell that to everyone who's posted a thread about their SD card not working. In the past they've had apps that you would run to automatically remount your SD card when it stopped working. They eventually just got to the point where they built that into the OS's. If eMMC's were harder to deal with phones would be crashing right and left. They're also faster than uSD cards. The fastest eMMC and uSD both came out recently. The fastest eMMC transfers data at 400MB/s. The fastest eMMC is 80MB/s. So the "easier" way is also less stable and slower.
    Also when you need to do a factory reset, or in some cases, something happens with the internal memory that ir crashes or something of that nature, or in somecases the phone freezes and wont turn on, you will lose everything
    SD Cards help with this by being able to remove them in case something like this happens
    No, you'll only lose what you haven't backed up. The same can be said for what will happen when a uSD card gets corrupt or breaks. You'll lose everything on it and that's not a horribly uncommon thing to have happen.

    There's always the possibility of partitioning up a larger chunk of internal memory to a smaller, boot drive and a larger, storage drive. So a factory reset would only wipe out the boot drive and the rest would be left untouched, just like what happens with a uSD card? Eventually internal memory will be cheap enough that it will cost them less to add another, reasonably sized eMMC over a uSD slot. Internal memory is getting cheaper, but keeping the uSD slot is getting harder and more expensive.

    As for Syncing....I had an iPhone, and constantly syncing with iTunes (or in this case, using Kies or another software to sync) is very time consuming in my experience
    My Dropbox photos and videos are done whenever I connect to WiFi. My iTunes music is synched at night when I'm sleeping without me having to do anything. I can set up my SMS to be automatically backed up whenever I want, too. I can also make whatever I want my phone automatically sync with Dropbox, Drive or a couple other free services. Syncing doesn't have to be hard or time consuming. I found it pretty easy to make it take up none of my time at all.

    I just think removable storage is much easier to work with, especially for media users. Other users may not need it, but I know I do
    I do agree that cloud storage is booming, and I think it has many many benefits. I just hope phone manufacturers decide to completely remove removable storage from their devices in order to be forces to use cloud services
    I haven't seen anything that's easier with removable storage except for transferring large amounts of data. Newer chip sets are including USB 3.0 which will give higher transfer rates (rates way higher than what's they've achieved with uSD cards) so that will be less and less of an issue as well. That's also a benefit that's used relatively rarely while the benefits of internal storage are seen every time you use your phone.

    I have my media on a micro SD and also backed up to my PC as well as various cloud providers because I never want to lose it. You're assuming that phone storage will expand the way you are saying. I hope you're right but I never like to assume anything.
    It's a prediction. I have to make some assumptions when it comes to predicting the future. You're making assumptions as well every time you say something I'm predicting might not be right. The assumptions I'm making with regard to storage expansion are based on decades of data. There isn't really anything in the near future that's pointing to this stopping, either. Moore's Law, and laws related to it, have been the safest prediction in technology for the last 48 years. People have predicted that it will stop soon for years now and have all been wrong. Here's an article where the top guy at SanDisk predicted that 32GB drives would be where they'd hit a brick wall with their uSD cards:

    How did that turn out? I have a 64GB SanDisk card in my phone right now. Samsung as 128GB eMMC's already.

    That being said, even if it does expand to 256 GB in 3 years, I'll still be in the same situation as the amount of memory that I use for things like photos and HD video (3 kids will do that to you) will also grow. I wont remain at 80 GB forever.
    Does your media library double in size every year and a half? Was it only 40GB at the beginning of 2011, 20GB in the middle of 2009 and 10GB at the beginning of 2008? I don't think we won't reach spots where the memory sizes won't coincide with media library sizes in the future. We're in one of those spots now and I don't doubt we'll be in that spot again in the future. I just don't think we'll have removable media on our phones when it comes up next.
