But your case does hold validity. Good point.

But, what if you forget your MicroSD card inside your phone while giving it for repair and then the repair guy copies the contents of the microSD card and puts it back, all done without the customer knowing?

Let's say you send your phone for repair, the photos inside the phone storage can't be easily take out and you will worry the private photos will be get hacked, while if you save in the SD card you can take out without hesitation and transfer it to another phone, you can insert into the second phone and use it as usual.

When you turn on the wifi Hotspot sharing or data it also have risk to share your personal information, you can't hide yourself from hacked if you have important things.

Different people have a different understanding of the word security. For example, you may encrypt the microSD card and think you are safe, but that is not the case. MicroSD card encryption is very feeble for hackers who are dead-set to extract information. It just prevents a layman from accessing your data.

And we all know how cloud storage has been hacked/ personal data viewed by people belonging to the company which owns the cloud storage.

It seems like nothing we do these days can prevent our data from being misused.
But this should not mean that I don't believe in data security. We all must implement the best possible practices to keep our data safe. My friend was ignorant, that's for sure.

Only when a huge scandal comes up and is covered with media, do people realize how important their personal info, which seems irrelevant to them, has been used to influence them. Eg: the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
Even now, people use "sign in with Google" or "Sign in with Facebook" on random websites, just to save a few keystrokes and in turn giving up VERY POWERFUL personal information to dubious entities.

Personally I think that the MORE LOCAL the data is, the safer it is. Let's not use any media that can be used without our presence. Ideally, I would buy a 10TB server, disconnect it from all network, use the best possible encryption, and store all my data there.

THE-TRUTH-REVEALER, 06 Sep 2019I am sorry for your loss. However, your situation is much b... moreSuch private photos how could your friend don't encrypted it, they are thousands of third-party can do encryption. Even you upload on cloud it is still safer then save in phone.

She had put a lock screen password on the device, but the memory card had a lot of pictures, some of them very personal. She had st*pidly even taken a pic of her debit card and ATM password (lazy young generation). Luckily, she blocked her card on time and the photos(as of yet) have not been put out.
I think it is better to take regular backups of your photos and avoid microSD card altogether.
Since phones stopped using these, the microSD card companies are paying less and less attention to security.

Of course, I am pro-choice. So I would prefer 256GB internal storage (UFS 3.0, for those who absolutely never want to use a microSD card) + a card slot. Especially when the asking price is $950.

Last time I use 16GB memory card, next time will choose 32GB or 64GB memory card.

And i'm enjoying Sony apps on superior hardware Huawei phones. Its the best from both worlds.

I view it from the computer screen it is quite nice nothing like you said, but you still can bring up something just nitpicking nevertheless . On the other hand you try your best on how to praise Huawei in your comments. I know you have practice on clone apps but it is a clone you deserved it.

Is it you Pro, 02 Sep 2019I think those Sony's audio decoding must play the deep role... moreSony always pioneered about their media apps, no doubt about that. Well even if its clone Sony Music app on top of Huawei's built-in Dolby Atmos sound system, it still got its own quality & doesnt feels cheap.

I simply using Dolby Atmos on, select for 'Music', set 'Open' option as i use the on-ear earphones. For in-ear, i'll use 'Rich' mode. It works in the Sony Music apps & effecting your overall sound system, including speaker. Normally using 60%-70% volume level.

Shui8, 02 Sep 2019Sad to hear that. I do agree Z2 got great bassy & crisp... moreI think those Sony's audio decoding must play the deep role, although the player cloned on your phone but low bass and noises (Huawei isn't quite a leading in audio delivery) would makes some difference. I have try the paid version music player on my new device, the audio decoding (even with a 50~60% of volume) still can't match my Z2, I mean the comfortable for listening. How you setting your Music on your Mate 20? How is level of the volume usually play?

And yes, i hide the notch on my Mate 20, all the time. Considering it has high quality JDI branded LCD, black levels are good and i cant barely sees it. But that doesnt change the facts that the rest of its specs superior for the price i paid, reasons why i chose it at the first place.

Does the notch bothering you when you typing in a night time? I feel quite annoying so hide the notch all the time, bezel isn't a problem to me.
