These days, users use their smartphone as a mini laptop. They use it every day for their various tasks from business to entertainment and from education to medical purposes. Before five years almost all people use their mobiles for just few tasks like as for calling, listening music or watching 3GP video clips and sometimes for internet browsing. Slowly, it started to change, afterwards more and more people were started to use their mobiles for heavy tasks that so many users feeling less memory space on their gadgets. To overcome this problem companies started to develop more memory space in their all devices so customers could buy bigger storage devices.
But problem again rose when all contents of smartphones became high definition. The HD videos, HD games and high resolution images took all memory space and leave less memory to operate. Now this was impossible for every smartphone manufacturers to expand storage space on each device due to some limitations. So finally they decided to transfer their all users to alternative place where they could get more space.
Firstly, Apple was the only player in the market who limits storage on their iPhones. There are no expandable storage options on Apple’s iPhone and iPad models. Now slowly all players in industry are removing external storage options. From company’s view there are two benefits of removing external storage, first one is they can turn device into best design and quality and second one and most important is device can run faster without any lags.
Best performance and best look on gadget also good benefits from users view but in some ways they need to limit their usage. It is not easy for every user, specially, to those users who store high graphics games, 1080p videos and best quality images on their smartphones. To follow Apple’s trend the Samsung also started to release their devices without external storage. They started it with their top Galaxy S6, but later dismissed it with Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Galaxy S8 & S8+ and Galaxy Note 5, 7 & newly launched Galaxy Note 8. They released their new Note 5 and S6 Edge+ devices without storage options.
