    The cloud is as secure as the internet, if you use one of the known cloud accounts - Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.

    As far as the S6, no. You can't "Extend" the storage - what you have is all you get.

    You can "extend" the battery with a power bank or a solar charger.

    (Those two things - non-removable battery and no SD card - are the reasons I wouldn't buy an S6, since they and an Ottebox Defender [which is available for the S6] are mandatory for any phone I own.).

    Which storage level? 64GB should be more than enough for most. Store what you don't need or haven't accessed in years externally and not become a digital packrat with 7k pictures and 12k songs. It is supposed to be MOBILE and it's just a PHONE.

    Have faith in the cloud. It is more secure than storing your data locally.

    What then will you do if ALL companies decide to stop making phones with SD Cards and removable batteries?

    I guess there's always MagickJack, Vonage, or OOma...or even POTS...(plain old telephone service) which is still available by the way!

    Speaking of cloud, is it true S6 buyers will get 100GB of OneDrive free space? And how is that cloud service relative to others like, say, Dropbox or Drive?

    Maybe it's not possible, but I'd really like to see a case with some kind of built in storage and battery pack.

    If you have nothing to hide then it's okay, right?

    I assume you can use an OTG cable to connect to a flash drive.

    This link is for the S5, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work for the S6 (I hope):

    BTW - regarding cloud security:

    It's not that I have anything to hide, but misinformation, apportioning data incorrectly, incompetence, cover ups, but saving and licking is rife, and we have no control over what some people can do intentionally or unintentionally with our information.

    That said I do sleep well at night, and all the people that tell you I can be paranoid are just out to get me, and there will be lots of them!

    That is tempting. I have an OTG cable, but this looks so much more convenient. Nice!

    I didn't know about those either, until one of the regular posters here put it up.

    But OK, I'll take all the credit. I'm not shy.

    On Edit: This was another one from Kingston that still works as an OTG cable, I think. (Both of these require a device with OTG support.)
    I much prefer the SanDisk brand though.

    Man, I'd MUCH rather have the Google drive or Dropbox space. I just can't figure out what to do with OneDrive lol.

    Every time I open my OneDrive I just end up sitting there staring at it, then closing it with a shrug.
