And they hardly ever have issues. Plus there is even 128GB ones. They are a bit pricy, but still cheaper in the end.
and if you want to go that rout then technically your internal storage can just as easily suffer. Even you cloud backup can face some form or corruption.

It's still less expensive hardware on less functional software. System wide restriction is not the same as massive optimizing.....
But back to reality...it's not true. It's Ui is smidgen faster because it has weak resolution and suffers from system wide lock down....that's it.
... besides the aapl-propaganda, there are 10 Things Apple won't tell....(and iboys_igirls are blind to see)
Benchmarks mean nothing..Only 2 phones exist in the world..
The rest are over bloated over spec'd turds that wait and prey they get the latest versions of its OS..
True story,have a great day..
It should not matter what YOU think about a feature like SD card.
Apple charge people a premium so just give your fan the features and let them decide and not wait years to get them. There billions of ifan who will use it in many different way.

You cannot run applications out of the sd card anyways. It's only good for storing photos, and music. It's not a big deal, 64 gb is good enough that said for me the 16gb is already good enough however tempted for a 64 since apple has changed it from the second version is a 64 instead of a 32. OH right, and please stop your b s ing. It's a Micro SD card, shelf life is extremely low due to it's small size. Most of these don't last that long. Also how many photos do you have anyways for crying out loud? 5000 photos? give me a break. Even Nokia and Asus do not have sd card readers on their phones for the same reason.
Everyone is brain washed by "galaxy" am not a fan of either android nor ios but I can tell you the iphone beats android any day when it comes to smoothness...I owned a android phone once an my problem was I could do to much to the phone so I sold it and never touch one again...so I went to bb10 and found that the Os is the best in the market to date an it can only get better
Tornado Red R32, 12 Sep 2014Is it really worth it when that extra memory costs them just $5?You will get to know this when you'll loose your important data even after buying $90 card. I am quite inclined to buy my next phone with greater inbuilt memory. May be I'll go for iPhone this time.
Its Apple whos insulting the ifans.
Adding a bit of length one year then add more width the next.
You pay flagship price and only have 2 version to choose from. Why accept Apples sloooow adaptation of very common and simple features?
You charge the loyal fans enough, why insist that they all use it the same way or go out and buy more accessory or adapters(or wait many more years) to have the features?
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2014more computing power lower life for the phone faster battery drain, and the 5s already defeat... moreThat's the whole point. No matter how good your external card is there is good chance of it getting damaged cz of heat of the device or other reasons. Quality cards are expensive & they still aren't as good as inbuilt memory.
Apple charges $100 for extra 48 or 64 gb is definitely worth it.
iPhone 6 16gb costs $648
64GB costs $748
128GB costs $848
Gary5, 12 Sep 2014Talking about my card in S4. I am sure this one is genuine still got damaged. Now about memory... moreOverheating is behind the card damage in S4, AFAIK. It's a shame. I got two 16GB cards damaged and currently don't have any in the slot. (Bought a second hand 16GB 3GS for listening to music without draining battery instead)
yo android fan boys, if a sd card slot is that important to you.. that's fine.... get a phone that has that feature. NO need to come here and insult people and be a troll. It's already known that apple will not include a sd card slot soon. apple users have the choice to accept this or not. no need to troll and insult people.
mkevin, 12 Sep 2014The point here is to compare what sort of improvement you will get for an upgrade from 5s and ... moremore computing power lower life for the phone faster battery drain, and the 5s already defeated the s5 in performance test anyways, so specs are useless when it comes to ios.
I think that the iPhone 5S really has a lot of headroom in terms of power vs. screen resolution. That should be harder to repeat with the 6 plus, especially.
Gary5, 12 Sep 2014Yeah. Memory cards are cheap & yes they are cheap in every way. There is compelling reason... moreYou do know there is a way to recover all the data in your sd card right? Even if it has been formatted you can still recover it using recovery software.
Sandip D, 12 Sep 2014you are right i have been using Note 3 form the day it launched and i can feel the phone gone ... moreSame story with my duo galaxy s3-iphone 5. After a year and a half the s3 lagged so hard that it became literally useless. At the same time, the iPhone (which is even a bit older than the s3) works still as when it was new...
