    If it was anything other than a money grab $am$ung wouldn't be charging $100 for each memory upgrade iteration when the actual cost of materials is fraction of that. $ammy sees Apple ripping off its drones and wants to get in on the act.
    No kidding. They'd be crazy not to. Samsung is no longer some random "also ran" manufacturer - people actually seek the brand out. Once that happens, the manufacturer can shift away from value added to design aesthetics.

    Hopefully auto manufacturers never study the cell phone manufacturers - base model of a car comes with a 5 gallon gas tank, middle moddle gets 10 gallons and the top model gets 16 gallons with each upgrade costing a few thousand $.

    Wow, you really equate gas tank sizes to storage sizes on phones instead of battery size or battery life?

    OK, I'll play that game.
    With LG's new car you now not only have your normal gas tank like every other car, but also have a removable has tank that you can strap to the top of your trunk. They come in lots of sizes and you can buy them from Amazon quite easy. Once installed you might have limited viewing on your rear view mirror, but hey, you don't need to see all the fools that you've left behind in the dust anyway. Right?

    Of course, we could have made models that have a larger tank to begin with, but why not ask our consumers to spend additional money so that they can make it to work each day. Plus if any of the gas gets corrupted on the external tank, just throw away the gas tank and buy another. It will be fun for the whole family. ;-)

    I would actually buy that, lol.

    But only if the included gas tank is already big enough.

    (Seriously, make one for the Lexus LFA. The tank on that thing is small)

    That's a hot car. But where are you going to put the tank, on the hood?

    I like reading about all the reasons they changed (Makes more sense); however, I want the SD and Swappable battery.
    If you "don't care" about these two options Samsung will be very happy.
    My opinion: "Buy whatever phone you like."

    You are obviously totally deluded by the FUD and Misinformation and you and so many others simply don't understand technology in the first place. So you just rather make up some type of conspiracy theory instead of facing the facts. First off Samsung is one of the SDA Board Members and stand to lose money, if they can't sell their own SD cards. That to go with losing licensing fees w/o an SD card slot designed around hardware standards they've contributed!

    Just get real and come back down off your ignorant toadstool long enough to understand this simple fact; SDA members aside from Samsung and a few others want to move to a supporting UFS 2.0 Memory modules on SD Card slots. But.... those that don't have the technology to begin selling such advanced SD Readers don't want this to happen. Because they would be forced to upgrade to these new standards on their own memory chips!

    You don't think Samsung wants to move us into the future? Where they can actually support faster SD cards Flash memory, to make more money from us???? Reality here bubba.... is that Samsung already dominates memory business like no other company on the planet. They spend 10 to a 100 times more on R&D than their next closest competitor. Who are also members of SDA Standards setting body. When SDA finally moves to support far more advanced UFS 2.0 sequential simultaneous read/write flash memory, Samsung will be the first to pop a new MicroSD card slot in their phones for use to buy better memory from...... THEM. Rather than their sandbagging fellow members of SDA!!!
