The OnePlus One does NOT have a microSD slot
posted by Michael H. / May 13, 2014, 2:51 PM
There has long been hope that the OnePlus One would include expandable storage, and the rumor got a boost when the feature was listed in the user manual for the device submitted to the FCC. But, it turns out that what was listed in the user manual wasn't a hint at a secret feature, it was just a mistake. Plenty of outlets have gotten their hands on the OnePlus One already, including Android Police, and no one has found the microSD card slot on the handset, because there isn't one to be found. Cyanogen Inc. has confirmed that the listing in the user manual was a mistake, no word from OnePlus yet.
Of course, considering OnePlus is charging only $349 for a 64GB model, it should make it a bit easier to get by without the use of expandable storage. That is assuming those of you who want a One can get your hands on an invite.

Didn't think it has SD card slot to begin with

Yeah I'm a little confused as to why this is here. It was evident early on it didn't have removable storage. At $350 for 64GB of storage it's not that bad.

Heck, I've got a 32Gb Note 3 and I only use the 64Gb card I have in there because I have it... With a USB 3.0 connection there's really no advantage to using a removable SD card for data transfer. Don't know if the One+One has USB 3.0, though...

Maybe you are right in your tiny little land. However, i switched from apple because i dont need self righteous pricks making decisions for me. Even if I don't need 128gb of storage, it is really cool to review my gopro videos on my phone, right after a dive in a bar over drinks with the crew. They 1+1=fail could have just charged 399$ with the sd card, and I would have ponied up the dough. There is no way I will purchase a phone that does not have expandable storage. Ok, I lied, if you give it to me for $50, I'll buy it.

---"There is a fairly small subset of mobileusers who are adamant that devices should have expandable storage (and will get quite rowdy when the feature is left off of a new smartphone)."--- There is a much larger portion of us than this leads believe. As a mainstream user with no employed ties to the wireless industry, I can safely say that many of us do no want to be tethered to cloud services which may cost us more money a month. We must observe the popularity of the Samsung line that has inherently recognized these wishes. We must also witness the lack of sale by those other than Apple that can't see this. It amazes me that today's tech enthusiasts ignore the customer control and customization that consumers enjoy. John B.

He was always on the warpath against SD cards, saying you couldn't make a good phone if you had to support SD memory.

Well thats another reason not to bother with it. The more I've heard about this phone the less interest I've had.

why do phonearena has to announce it as if it such a big deal most more expensive flagship phones don't have microsd card slot. this company is setting a new standard in smartphone industry. and phonearena is bringing down the image by making the heading of this article like this. I use a windows phone but when I saw this phone and its price it made me want to Get an extra phone. THIS IS A BIG THUMBS UP TO THE COMPANY THAT MADE THIS PHONE AT THIS PRICE. other companies are just making too much profit.

most other expensive flagships don't have sd card slot? Please give me some examples. Because samsung, sony, htc and LG got one. They made this article because yesterday OPO had sd card slot on their manual. This is for clarification.
