    Some people see no harm in rewinding cassette tapes with pencils either...lol. It's just funny that you want such an ancient tech function. It'd be like saying a VCR would be a nice feature.
    I prefer cassettes

    You never know when you might need a VCR. I still have a VCR and a bunch of tapes in my basement and I would like to watch some of them on the go.

    So when you hear about Walkman, you think of a cassette player? No offense, but it seems instead of a discussion, you like to depreciate people.

    I just thought your post was funny...that's all. Relax.

    And yes, when I hear walkman, I unquestionably think this...because this is what a walkman is:

    I used to have one for playing CD's back in '05. It's just surprising how far technology has gone in the past 10 years. It was just a couple of years ago everyone had those desktops with the insanely huge monitor...

    Yup, I totally agree...cloud works like a charm when you sync your files routinely; I use the cloud too. For me, it's great to save files, but cumbersome to retrieve them as I need to login, I need to have data connection, plus I need to pay a monthly fee. SD card, like built in storage, I can retrieve the files whenever/whereever I like.
    Plus your data isn't on a cloud that only is supported by an Apple product plus windows (iCloud). Google Drive, drop box and etc are OK but isn't as integrated with Apple products like iCloud is.

    I know this wasn't mentioned in the topic title, but USB on the go feature would be nice, at least for me.
    Ditto. OTG functionality would be great.

    I thought there is a way to replicate this on iOS?

    All memory does, more or less.

    From what I have read and base on my own experience, only a small portion of them become unreliable over time. If they can last me 2 years or more or until I get a new phone, they are worth it to me. I can then move it to my new phone.

    That being said, if Apple is able to include the sd card on the side as a popout without sacrificing the aesthetic and quality of the phone, would you use that option?

    Everything in the iPhone fits in a tight space, none of which is wasted. To answer your "what if" question, Apple would have to make many changes to the OS and this also brings the possibility of viruses being loaded onto SD cards and infecting the iPhone in use. Apple would also consider the chances of a jailbreak being made possible through the usage of SD cards.

    Oh. I've had cassettes before. Good ole CrO2, Metal, Dolby B & C Noise reduction, auto-reverse, 3-head monitoring. All the goodies. But the digital Walkmans are what I'm fond of.

    Neither. An extra battery is just another device that becomes a burden. I'd rarely need one, but I'd feel the constant need to keep it charged.

    As for storage, nope - swapping storage is a pain, and if I have to pay for a big storage card, I might as well pay for the internal storage which is much more convenient.

    I'd love to have both options. I have chargers everywhere but I'd like to be able to buy a new battery once the original stopped holding a charge. Also, the cost of tossing in a micro SD card is much cheaper than paying $100 to climb the storage ladder when it comes to the iPhone.

    I would not want any of those options. Replacement of single components is important for tools that need to do their job for a long time, like a machine in a factory. A smartphone is obsolete after 1-3 years.

    Whats the use of having a smartphone with sd expansion card and replaceable battery if the rest of the hardware is so outdated I cannot even get the latest software update any more?

    And I definitely would not like to fumble around with another tiny card - I am looking forward to the end of the sim card.

    Yes, a phone with 128 GB is more expensive than one with 16 GB and an expansion card. But I can also sell it for a higher price.

    Why do I get the distinct impression that I have wandered onto a SanDisk or Samsung sponsored forum?
    I was going to say my GS 3 corrupted several of those vaunted 'high end' sandisk and Samsung cards. So did my S4. There won't be an S5 or S6 to give it another chance.

    I do partially regret picking up the 16GB model but don't care about SD card as most things are stored in the cloud and with Apple Music I can take my music anywhere with me.

    I came from Android and the adjustment wasn't difficult at all really. The pros far outweighed the cons for me and to this day I still have no complaints other than restricted storage. If I'd have gone for the next model up though I wouldn't be having an issue so I'll know for future now.
