They're ran on a different pipeline, so if you want to copy data from the USB port to the microSD, you actually get faster speeds than simply slitting the USB port. I use my phone to clone SD cards, for photography purposes.
Having data on the SD card also means it doesn't get uploaded to the cloud, which is good because I don't always want to upload things to the cloud. Most cloud services I know of have been compromised at some point or other.
SSDs also have limited write cycles, so if you're constantly writing data that you're obtaining from the cloud, it will lessen the lifespan of the phone considerably.
How does it negatively impact the customer? I understand from the manufacturers point of view it makes sense not to include a microSD card slot because they can sell the more expensive phone with more storage, but please remind me what your issue is against having a microSD card slot.
SkyTechX, 21 Oct 2016Really google? Not having Micro SD slot, what a jokeDoes it really matter when they give you unlimited cloud storage for images and videos (at full resolution)?
SkyTechX, 21 Oct 2016Really google? Not having Micro SD slot, what a jokeTransfer speed of SD memory its very slow... it's like difference between HDD and SSD. In the end someone like you, will blame the device because is too "slow"... it's not enough 128Gb?
some people has the stupid notion that having no removable memory is a feature of premium phone.
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2016Everyone is saying no one will buy them yet they are out of stock on pre-orders. lolThat doesn't always mean they are out of stock. Sales will definitely not be as good as the previous Nexus lines. Just sit back and watch the show lol
please Please PLEASE bring back the Mighty MicroSD!!!
I love having a 200Gb flexible reliable internal storage solution that WHEN my phone breaks I can simply pull out intact!
I don't care that the I/O is relatively slow. It's fine for anything I use it for!
whats so new beside the "words"
ok, so Apple and the rest did round the edges and now the rest is doing it, Apple started with the NON-removal battery, all is doing it, Apple started with NO extensible memory...and so on BUT how about a new phone like Pixel....with the rest of possibilitys and 2-3 more things; and y'all cant tell me that there is nothing else to add to a phone, please, all those geeks there and for what cause the system is the same
endy, 19 Oct 2016hate the tiny screen to size ratio... feels like an iphone.That is exactly what I was thinking.
The XL has a better screen to size ratio.
I was hoping it would be a little closer to the 72- 73%
Can you guys add this to the battery test list to see how it fares against the S7 edge
Zv45, 18 Oct 2016LOL... What about the iPhone? iPhones are utter junk
Zv45, 18 Oct 2016LOL... What about the iPhone? Including the iPhone sht... phone with no memory is a dumb choice imo even it has 200gb internal mem or make it 1TB phone with a mem is a safe choice imo...
What the fck for real people wan a phone with no memory card? Oh boy all Google phone sucks including nexus sht!
Does it have a LED indicator, or any other way to notify you of missed calls/new emails etc?
