I weng to upgrade my S20 to the S21 but having checked the S21 out i found out the S21 no longer has a Sd card slot, big mistake as i left Apple many years ago due to there being no option to add extra storage other than paying to use the cloud now it seems Samsung has gone down the same road probably to make more profit. BIG MISTAKE
I've upgraded from the Note 10 Plus 5G 256gb with 128gb memory card to S21 Ultra 512gb 16gb ram.
I always found using memory cards slowed the devices down and is one main reason other companies done away with external storage ages ago. I've used many different devices and different memory cards but is the reason apps cannot run from memory cards very well because they are too slow compared to Internal high speed storage.
You can still connect USB drives using a USB adapter but not buying a device just because its got rid of a really old slow feature is silly as pretty much all devices are the same because if the low memory speeds.
yea I wouldn't recommend upgrading from an S20 to 21 for anybody, don't care about sd but it's got just a HD screen plastic back same cameras and less ram,I get that it's cheaper but would rather pay same price as S20 and get more, will be waiting for S22 in the hope it's back to business what annoys me is I like smaller phones so to get what I have in the S20 I would have to go for the ultra
i think Samsung has made a huge mistake because what really set them apart from apple was the ability to increase your storage using an sd card. as you state several other issues have taken them backwards by years.
