Have I understood correctly that with the S21 Ultra you can not add an SD card? If true that's a pity
Solved! Go to Solution.
Having had my S21 Ultra for almost a year I have not missed the SD card, but I do not do much in the way of photos or video and I did get the 512GB option phone
It sure is. They must be saving something up for the S22 Ultra 🙂
Yes SD cards officially removed from the S21 series, I think the focus increasingly moving to Cloud services so remains to be seen if there will be a rethink in the future. Personally have not used an SD card on a mobile for a little while, though they obviously have their fans. https://www.androidpolice.com/2021/01/14/samsung-ditches-microsd-card-slot-for-galaxy-s21-series/#:~...

It will be interesting to experience the integration with One Drive. I backup to One Drive automatically with my S20 Ultra already, so once I get my S21 Ultra I will be able to judge how good this integration is and its advantages. Maybe we will not need SD Cards in the future, but my worry is where you do not have great mobile signal ie many lovely places. High res video cant half eat up 256M or even 512M !
You are right, there is a cost to any good quality cloud storage. I am a Microsoft 365 user so get my 1TB as part of my package. You also have to remember that although Google, MS and so on give you 99.99% on the availability of their service they do not give any grantee on your data. It is your responsibility to back up your One Drive / Google Drive and so on to another place. If you value your photos and videos you have to back them up and this takes time and costs money. I guess you can connect your phone using USB to your PC and store on a NAS or other external storage USB stick and so on
