    E. I need an ext SD card. I'm still holding out for Samsung to return to using them when they release the S7. If not, I may be moving to an LG, as it looks like they still appreciate those who like/use this versatile storage media.

    I also voted C. I had them and never used them accept when I had a 16Gb phone for extra movie storrage (that I never watched). Now that 32Gb is near standard and with the new storage technologies and cloud storage I have not need for one. I keep all of my pictures and videos backed on the photos app. I also understand that for carriers no SD card is better because you will likely use more data while transferring data to and from the cloud.

    I voted D. Even though I can't win (darn, lol), I want to see as much representation for this poll as possible. I definitely like having my info safeguarded on my own storage. It makes it easier doing fdr's, switching it from device to device, not relying on data or cloud (use that minimally bc I don't want my important stuff out there), backing up and overall convenience. But if the device had the specs to entice me, I could reconsider.

    E.) It's probably more psychological than anything else, but I prefer having the peace of mind knowing I've always got plenty of storage available. (GS3 to HTC One M7 to LG G4)

    D. It's a very nice feature to have to expand memory on a phone. If it comes down to a really nice phone with no sd card and a 64gb version of the phone, I won't hesitate to purchase it.

    Good luck everyone!

    I voted for "C". With automated wireless backups to my laptop, SdCards have become irrelevant to me.

    The only thing I used them for were Nandroids and it takes away the convenience of flashing a system image on the fly.

    I chose E.

    I live in rural TN and I have satellite internet and my data is limited so I can't put stuff in a cloud. So an SD slot becomes pretty important.

    Put me in the "used to love them, but not as important to me anymore" group. I am very glad though to see these contests continue after so many years on DF.

    D . Only if the phone has plenty of memory. I've had several nexus devices and the cloud gets the overflow, usable on each device.

    i need an SD card but most phones usually have an internal storage so if there's no SD allocation, I think it would be just fine
