One thing that Samsung fans absolutely love is the presence of a microSD card slot on their phone. Whether you use it or not, having the extra peace of mind that you can easily expand your storage whenever you need to is always appreciated. Especially in a world where popular manufacturers are actively stifling storage on their phones (*ahem* Google Pixel).But the latest rumors surrounding the Galaxy S21 series sounds a bit concerning. Reportedly, the small Galaxy S21 and the Galaxy S21+will not have a microSD card slot. The rumor mill says that the S21 Ultra is the only one that will probably, maybe, possibly still have a microSD card slot.
Then, the whole Galaxy S20 trio still had a microSD card slot and even the budget Galaxy S20 FE that launched half a year later had the commodity. But when the Note 20 duo came to be, we had the same deal the cheaper Note 20 didnt have a microSD slot, the expensive Note 20 Ultra had it.

The Galaxy S6 generation is ancient history by now, but let me bring back some bad memories. It was the result of Project Zero Samsungs initiative to reimagine its premium line phones. This is when we lost the removable battery commodity, but got the pretty metal-and-glass slabs that we know and love today.
I dont think so. Mainly because nowadays the default storage we get in phones is very, very generous. Gotta remember back in the Galaxy S6 days, we only had 32 GB of space in the phone, around 9 GB of which was already taken by the operating system. Nowadays, phones launch with 128 GB of internal storage, which is pretty roomy. As per rumors, the S21 and S21+ will also have 256 GB storage options.
Yes, powerusers that refuse to use cloud backup for their photos and videos will be irked, but I dont think we will see backlash as big as in Galaxy S6 days. Itll mostly be fine.
