People that care about design in general do it about the quality of the selfies too. Call it vanity or whatever you prefer. Maintain the mediocre selfie camera compared to direct competition, make this one lot less desirable. Hard to chose this and not to pay more for a well balanced phone, brands aside.

since they have laptops/pc to store away their important files (photos, music, videos) in.
For others, their phones are used as portable mini computer, thus, need the extra storage.

Also I think SD gets corrupted and fails more easily than internal storage
Even a minute damage to the SD will make it Unusable , Malware can destroy it ,Dust and other Environment factors can destroy it etc etc
Dr.AliRashid, 11 Sep 2017price buddy price, an SD card of 128gb is waay cheaper than buying urself a 256gb model
and b... moreThat is only in case of iPhone where the next storage upgrade is 100$ more BTW its not applicable for other brands
Also I think SD cards are messy and get corrupted easily also imagine if your 256GB SD card which you got for hell lot of money gets corrupted then how much you will loose
Pretty much perfect IMO.
Much higher quality AMOLED screen, smaller footprint, prettier. Loss of 1000mAh is nothing given that it's supposedly one of the latest Samsung AMOLEDs which will use a fraction of the power of the original Sharp LCD.
Most of all, a way better camera. The IMX386 is excellent. Also no dual camera, so custom ROMs won't have issues.
Pricing is also very good.

Your free g-cloud allowance is 115Gbytes, not enough for even a 128G built in ROM. You can also quickly clone an sd card if, for instance, you want copies of all your photos and videos on 2 devices and don't want to wait days for them to synchronise.

SD card were removed b4 1-2 years when the memory was just 16,32 and 64 so there is no sense in you whining

but now when the s7 and s7 edge does, plus waterproofing, its great

and besides having an SD card option is always welcome, nothing bad having it, not that we run out of space or anything, but its better if its there

Drop that phone on the ground or in a lake and ALL your data is lost FOREVER if you forgot to sync it. With sd card, i just pop it out and place it in a new phone. It's that easy.
Not to mention if you don't have Internet, the phone is useless.
On my sd card i download torrents, keep all the important data, apk kits etc.
On the phone's internal memory i only keep the installed apps.
If you don't have the technical skills, don't comment. You're embarrassing yourself.
Oh, i forgot to mention it lacks also the 3.5mm jack. I have a 1000 euro pair of gold plated cables headphones. What am i supposed to do? Throw them away?
I'm not against technical advancement, but these stupid brands are removing features and ask for more money. I mean wtf??! It is an insult to my IQ. They are downgrading the phones and ppl think they are better. Talk about stupid people.
this fone was giving me a hard decision if i should buy s8 or wait for this
well i wont say this is ba bad fone, but camera should had been upgraded, even the front camera is the same, and that battery is waaaay smaller than the first one
well after looking at the final review here I'll decide if i want this or the s8
yes and i have my eyes on mate 11 aswell, i hope that dual monochrome beauty is everything!!!
Only price can save samsung from this monster!!! Wow!!!, didnt see this one coming!!! amazing smartphone. I would like a comparison against lg v30!!!
I am mi fans for around 3 years,
this mix2 really disappoint me, no dual camera and also lower battery from mix1.....
doesnt make sense to me, 6' with 3.400 mAh, compare to note3 5.5' with 3.500mAh
I thought people improve better with next version...but this one.... lower the battery by 1.000mAh ...that is almost 30 percent reduced.....
Really don't understand the logic .....
Alien , 11 Sep 2017Still NO SD card slot
Still NO waterproofing
NEXT!the days of SD card are done with 64 ,128 and 256 Gb built in storage provided I don't understand why you would need extra storage
Also i think that these type of comments are usually from people the won't buy or can't buy the phone so they just leave random comments bashing the phone
what happens when you break the phone? where to find a service center? isnt xiaomi china only?
6" the pricing and specs all are amazing but the lower batterry is almost deal breaker i could still live with but i cant understand how the curved glass from all directions works , is the bezels not flush with the screen edges , does the screen have fake curve thats adeal breaker for me untill i see areview of that deviece im filled with adisappointment that wont go away no matter what i try to convince myself ....... btw wtf with sd660 in mi note 3 xiaomi making me furious .
i hate this article btw , its lacking in everything it only mentions specs and pricing . like its made bad on purpose .
