One of the most talked about smartphones is a model that's not even out yet, the Galaxy S7. Not without reason, Samsung's next flagship is an interesting product on a number of levels, and as such there's been no shortage of rumors, leaked photos, and outright speculation. One of the recurring themes among it all is whether or not Samsung will bring back expandable storage via microSD, and the latest leak suggests it will.The folks at Android Authority secured some photos and what they feel are concrete details about the Galaxy S7 from an "anonymous insider." Surprisingly, the leaked photos aren't... Read more...
News about Samsung’s Galaxy S7 continues to trickle out. As we mentioned this morning, the Galaxy S7 is an important test for Samsung’s new mobile chief, D.J. Koh, who took over the division only a month ago. It looks as though the Galaxy S7 will have 2560x1440 Super AMOLED screens on both its 5.1-inch and rumored 5.7-inch display option (for the Edge model). The phones will have bigger batteries than previous models, though, with the S7 sporting a 3000mAh battery and S7 Edge’s battery at 3600mAh. Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Interestingly, Samsung is reportedly bringing back the microSD... Read more...
When Samsung introduced its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge devices, it was universally praised for switching from plastic to glass and metal for a more premium feel, though the change in design came at a cost. Certain features were left out, one of the biggest being expandable storage by way of a microSD card slot. Those who found that omission to be a deal killer will be happy to know that Samsung may bring the microSD card slot back with the Galaxy S7.Bear in mind that nothing is even close to official about this, but according to the rumblings of an Italian-language website and sources it deems...

Samsung, what did we ever do to you? Samsung ticked off quite a few enthusiasts with the release of the Galaxy S6 earlier this year. While the smartphone brought with it a swanky metal and glass body, a fast octa-core processor and a QHD display, it also ditched the waterproof body, removable battery, and microSD slot. That last point was probably the most harped on omission. Given its position in Samsung’s smartphone lineup, many had hoped that Samsung would spare the Galaxy Note series from such feature reductions. As we come closer to the August 13 reveal of the Galaxy Note 5, it appears that... Read more...
We were excited when SanDisk announced a new 200GB microSD memory card at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. That is, until we caught wind of the MSRP -- $400! Yeah, it was one of those 'spit coffee on your monitor' moments. Ah, but a little patience makes all the difference in the world, as the exact same card can now be had for $240 on Amazon. That brings the cost per gigabyte down from $2 to a bit more reasonable $1.20. Yes, that's still pricey, especially when the 128GB version sells for $80 on Amazon, or around $0.63 per gigabyte. But that's the kind of premium we... Read more...
Mobile World Congress isn't just home to cool smartphones, and SanDisk proves it with its announcement of a jaw-dropping 200GB microSD card. Yes, 200GB - as in the storage capacity of 45 DVDs and 4 dual-layer Blu-ray discs on a memory card sporting a length of 15mm and thickness of 1mm. What else can be said but, "wow!"? With this much storage space, you'll be able to capture up to 20 hours of 1080p content - that's some serious freedom, right there. The card could also be used to store about ~100 720p movies, ~1,300 MP3 music albums, or ~20,000 high-res photos. Before you think, "But I can't use... Read more...

MicroSD cards. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. Okay, so that's definitely a stretch, and definitely doesn't genuinely apply to microSD cards, but if you're an Android user with loads of media, there's no doubt that these things are super important in your daily life.
