Just pointing out that with modern streaming and data services, plus things like USB OTG, I don't think an SD card is quite as necessary as it one was.
On board memory speed is now of more importance I believe, but then I am using an iPhone 6S that has 128gb's of the fastest memory yet built into a smartphone, so I can't really complain on either count :)

you can use an android app called hotspot shield to hide your identity too.
so.. you don't know who trolls you.
but i can see in which articles you put your comments into. well.. for this, you should blame gsmarena administrator for allowing anonymous users to see that.
bet samsung might have some force touch iphoned copied feature in their s7 lol

No bashing - deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand
No trolling - deliberately antagonizing other brand/model users
[deleted post]Huh huh why is the same person replying to his own comment using a different account?

Sure you can go for 128GB version of the phone for extra 200$. But it is costly solution. It is cheaper to buy base 32GB model and stick 200GB micro sd card in to it. At the end you get more for less.
I do get that built in memory is faster, but it makes no difference to how my movies or mp3s are played. They look and sound the same.
Its a bit like with cars. Any car would be faster than a lorry. But if you have to move a lot of goods car doesnt stand a chance.

Not sure why everyone is going on about the possible SD card slot??? Samsung's UFS storage blows any SD card out of the water in terms of speed, and if Google are serious about enforcing AES encryption on future versions of Android, then memory speed is going to be that much more important (especially considering Google's and their partner OEM's bizarre reluctance to adopt Hardware based AES solutions)
No, It's the battery situation Samsung need to improve on, the S6 sucked in this area, and it sucked bad.
If this S7 comes with anything less than 3000mAh, then I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole!
Sammy bear in mind when it comes to S7:
1. We want display not bigger than 5.2".
2. Battery >3500mAH
3. Expandable memory - uSD slot
4. 12MP with aperture
AnonD-495848, 01 Feb 2016very disappointed for the lack of sd slot. give me back my sd slot or i will switch to iphone.Until it's official, we do not know if there's an SD card slot or not, so quit presuming. And as anonymous quite rightly pointed out, there are no SD card slots on iPhones, never have been.
RAY, 01 Feb 2016samsungs strong points are removeble battery and and sd slot. if they dont give why we should ... moreIt is one of those features everyone wants to have, but nobody uses (or at least can happily live without). I really don't see how 64gb is not enough in the phone, nor any reason to remove the battery. In all my Samsung phones to date, I have never replaced the battery and only have removed it to insert sim car, or msd card (if it is not "hot swapable"). Again If I ever used the msd card it was only, because I can rather than I needed to. 16gb would be too low, but 32 is enough for most cases - I have note 3 for 2 years .. still not over 32gb when I combine internal memory and ms card and SGS6 edge 64 gb - only ~20 are used after 8-9 month. So stop crying - removable battery and card slot is just nice to have, but by now way most important or the only strengths of Samsung. The key are the Screens which are by far the best, cameras which are one of the best and still reasonable battery life and many other features; like health related apps etc. I believe it is much more value added in the slim body from factory (sub 7mm) than removable back and thicker body.
SD slot will be back! I'm not so sure for removable battery. For SD slot I'm 100% sure. They saw that people were not happy with SD slot removal, so they will put it back! Also the camera will be "only" 12 MP, BUT it will have a f/1,7 and the pictures should be much better than if the camera would be 16 MP and f/2 or f/2,2...
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2016Who said there's not going to be an sd card slot? Iphone doesn't have a card slot by the way. ... moresamsungs strong points are removeble battery and and sd slot. if they dont give why we should buy a galaxy thats what he says, samsung trying to iphonize there phones. why need of a galaxy just buy an iphone. you are a blind fan boy
