Apple has been doing it for a while now with its iPhone editions, but recently most major phone manufacturers outed or will have flagship models without microSD card slots
In the slideshow below we have listed some major handsets that force you to make do without more memory than their makers supplied internally, and upon making it we realized that this is getting epidemic now.
That is why we wanted to ask if you approve this obvious trend, and to what extent the good ol' memory card can be swapped for the newly-minted cloud storage services most major smartphone manufacturers are now trying to make us stomach.
Is it all an evil plot to make us sign up for cloud storage and tied up even further in the respective mobile ecosystem, so that we never leave, or is it just for cost-cutting/space saving reasons? Fill in our poll below and sound off your arguments in the comment section.
