Now, a lot of manufacturers are omitting the microSD card slot. Google insists on keeping it away from its own Pixel line and many of its partners has followed suit. Some major manufacturers still keep it — like Samsung and LG — but their phones also come with plenty of internal storage. That, combined with the contemporary cloud features — like Google Photos and Spotify / Play Music / Apple Music — and you can pretty much go through two years of usage without reaching fora microSD card.
Or so we think. Do you still have a microSD card in your phone?
Do you use a microSD card to expand your phone's storage?
I have a slot, but I don't use it.
No, and I don't have a slot.

Absolutely. My 512 gig Note 9 packs a 256 gig Samsung SD card. It’s currently using 46 of that 256 gigs.

No, and I also don't have a floppy disk in the era of the cloud.

You didnt mind using LCD displays for years while the superior better Amoled tech was out. Hey at least you can have it now with the latest Iphone models.

Amoled is still not as good - as far as I'm concerned - as lcd, because of the flickering that fatigues the eyes when the screen brightness is dimed. I even had an X - that somehow fixed this issue - and I felt the influence (don't know about xs or s10 - I hope they are ok). As for color accuracy, again lcd was better until recently - now the 2 tech are similar. Each technologies have their strong points and weaknesses, I just use what suited me the best.

Yes, nothing fancy, just a 128GB card for video, photos and general downloads. I have 128GB internal but I'd rather save that for applications, it's just better to keep everything separate imo.

Why the hell wouldn't you use one if you have the ability to?

Because phones today have more than enough storage. Why add more redundant storage

I don't need additional storage space on the devices that feature a slot. However, now that I hardly use my desktop devices anymore, I intend to insert the microSD cards used by my DSLR and action camera into my mobile devices, probably using an external card reader rather than a slot (if available).

I have a Wireless DSLR so I don't even need to remove the SD card from it, just transfer the photos from camera to phone, all wireless baby!

Absolutely, I just got a notification last night that I used 60% of my 512GB on my note 9 so I moved 200GB of stuff onto my 512 GB SD card. It's an absolute necessity in my life. And for my cell phone swan song I plan to upgrade to the 1TB Note 10 and the new 1TB San Disc SD card....that should be enough for everything.
