    Latest Mobile Phone Trend - FORGET IT...!

    THE MEMORY CARD SLOT, that is!

    Some manufacturers are DITCHING them

    Here is an article on just one such - the Samsung Galaxy S21 series
    https://www.androidpolice.com/2021/0...xy-s21-series/

    I found this out while casting about for the latest 5G dual-SIMmers (which Samsung in Oz is NOT).

    Yes, apparently 64GB and up of Internal Memory is enough for us punters - choice made for us

    What I DON'T like about the idea is that you'll certainly have trouble retrieving data from a fried fone.

    Well, I just ditched a whole lot of phones from my search, not just Samsung.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    I have a 2TB google one subscription, so all my data from my phone is backed up to the google cloud, so I don't need a memory card etc in my phone. The 2TB is $12.49 a month and use it not just for my phone, but it backs-up my laptop too. Syncing the backups is easy and constant.

    I know. There are ways around the situation, but I think choices are
    being made for individuals by "corporate mentalities"
