The SD card: a doomed dying or a survivor decided?


It was the iPhone 7 that alarmed the users who feared that the one that removed the port of auricular jack was something that copied the other marks, opening an interesting debate. It seems that the matter has relaxed, but the thing has led in a matter that has been queuing for some time: to keep or not micro-SD cards in our smartphones.

Some of them hate it, others love them … They were our best friends in the early versions of Android, and it’s curious to see how more and more manufacturers refuse to implement them in their higher ranges, like Google, which is already known that is not very fan Of these little ones. Although they do not suppose an improvement to the performance of our mobile, even the opposite in some cases … Will we ever see the end of the micro-SD in Android?

Ranges, ranges everywhere


Companies have been scrambling to position in what ranges allow SD on their devices not long ago. Today it is common to see a mobile that does not have support for these, although usually are devices of at least 32 gigabytes, leaving the cards for devices of 16 gigs. With the exception of high-end ranges like the Galaxy S7 or the Huawei P9, we see more and more like the SD end up in the low ranges to supply the storage, although this already enters within what we could ask a mobile at least in 2017.

But, there are several aspects to take into account. According to many media and users, SD cards lastran the general performance of the system which depends largely on the hardware and the level of the card, since there are several classes and ranges, but it is not something that is general, since users They perceive it in one way or another. Anyway, it is logical to think that, if it is true, companies do not want their most expensive mobiles to lose performance and, therefore, they get bad publicity.

And this is where the human factor takes on greater strength, because we are already in the midst of needs. There are users who refuse to see them unnecessary, or others – like me – who need to have separate internal storage and personal things to have all your things in one and have extra space on your phone. It also depends on storage, in the sense that you will not care if you have a SD if you have 128 gigs on your Android as in the case of the Nexus 6P or the OnePlus 3T.

I’m not going to venture, but I think the disappearance of micro-SD cards on Android will depend largely on the welcome of users, something logical but more tricky here. Let’s look at the case of the LG G5 and its modularity. Because depending on what use or acceptance the public gives the internal memory units, we can delimit better if they are affected by the disaster or resurface their marginalization as Nokia and its lost empire. It looks like the title of a movie, wow.

Do you usually use micro-SD on your Android? Or do you go from them?
