    I'm interested in everyones thoughts if they choose to forego a SD Card slot on this handset. Will you pass if the handset has no SD card or is there a minimum amount of onboard memory you'd settle for and pick it up anyway?

    I assume the "X", makes no difference to me. Minimum 16 onboard preferability 32 so I can cram 2 gigs on it.

    Every time I think I don't need one, I end up wishing I had it at some point... not a huge necessity, but if they can add it in a subtle way physically, that would be ideal.

    I gotta have one. I keep a lot of pictures and ton of music and need the space. I've got a 32GB in my T-bolt and i've got 10 free so some dinky 16GB phone won't cut it and I love the fact that I can yank the card out of my T-bolt and slap it in my next phone (probably Maxx HD or Note 2) and pick up right where I left off.

    So yeah, SD card FTW. Which sucks cause of drooling over the DNA but will pass it up because of lack of storage (non removable battery too).

    I would hate to lose the SD card. I don't think it would be a total deal breaker, but the phone would have to have at least 32gb on board at that point for me to still consider it.

    I would love an SD card. If it has 32GB, I could live without it.

    I have to have one. Its just more convenient. After having to send in my PS Vita and my son's 3DS for repairs....having removable storage is better IMO.

    I would prefer to have one. I also have a lot of pics, vids, ROMs, etc. It would have to have a minimum of 32GB, 64GB preferred, if it didn't come with an SD card slot.

    Been using 16G Nexus 4 for a couple months now and I have everything I need with 6G free. Having said that, I did have to pay more attention to how I roll. 32G should be at least an option, along with OTG capability.

    I have had a phone with an sd slot in it for over 7 years. There have been numerous times that I have destroyed my phone and was able to remove the card. Until recently when motocast came out I never had my photos backed up that often. So the slot is a must even with motocast. Also I am fed up with tablets not having card slots. Its so easy to have several cards with movies on them and change them out.

    I read somewhere may have been a day or so ago, and I'll see if I can find the article. But it mentioned the "X" will have an SD card slot (no spec on size), the device also has and this sounds absurd 128 GB of storage. The editor mentioned the storage loosely(as a see to believe it) and I will try to find the source.

    Yeah I have a hard time beliving that. 128GB would add another $100 EASY to the price tag and I don't know if they're gonna go that route. Besides, 64GB is HUGE and you're gonna have to really work to fill it up so 128GB would be way way way over the top.

    I would really like an SD card - depends on the on-board memory if it becomes a dealbreaker for me...

    KaChow is right in respects to the articles, rumor they may be. Yes 128 way over the top, my lame guess would be 32 with a 16 card. Or an empty slot.

    IF it has min 32gb onboard and empty slot, that's good enough for me.

    REMOVABLE is an absolute requirement for several of the things I use these devices for, period. Folks who make statements such as 64 or 128 gb being silly or ridiculous should remember to add a qualifier such as 'for me'.

    'For me', there are valid, required, useful reasons for large (data size wise), small (physical size wise), REMOVABLE storage:icon_ lala:

    I remain, of course and always, good with devices for those who don't need this. At least one other ecosystem doesn't seem to provide the range of choice to provide for the varied needs or desires of such varied users, so I'm thankful for android. dancedroid

    Please, ghost, offer removable SD and battery - I so need it in my 'field' work with the device.

    I've always thought that removable SD is a must. As people have said before I have often recovered files off a dead phone thanks to removable storage (fortunately never my phone but other peoples).

    I also think that many phones come with way to little storage space. The ones that have multiple storage size options are almost always ridiculously over priced for the amount of extra storage. For example the 64 GB iPhone 5 is $200 more than the 16 GB, while I can buy a 64 GB Micro SDXC card for $50.

    SD card slot please. If not, then it should have a 128 GB internal memory. I'm currently using a Razor Maxx HD with 32 gig internal ( 26 gig available) memory and I have been using a San disk 64 GB micro SD card in addition. More memory is better.
