If people really wanted jack and microSD, why the best selling models in the world are iPhones which don't have neither of that? Why would Galaxy S series sell so good, when it's the same case? Why would more and more phones be introduced without jack and microSD?
      Face it, real people don't care what local geeks want. Manufacturers care even less, they make what people buy.

In fact, gsmarena made a poll about it in Fe... moreno matter how the pool results ... the current models means the manufacturers dont care what the customers wants, the manufacturers just keep shovel nonsense to the customers and showing success results in graphs ... somehow ... they want everybody not to use microsd card, not to use cable for better music experience, not to unplug their battery, always connected to the health apps like are you still alive ??? still breathing ??? sleep well ??? where are you now ??? and they want every people on earth ... and or aliens posing as human, if they really exist, to buy new phone every year

          how to stop their nonsense ??? i dont know how ... they didn't even bother to appreciate the gsmarena.com poll result

                They cancelled it because the S21FE didn't sell well and they still have tons of A series still in the warehouse unsold.

                  blue, 20 Jul 2022It makes no sense to make a specific device for a thousand ... moreNope. We care. In fact, gsmarena made a poll about it in February 2021 and June 2022. The result shows people still want a micro sd slot in their phones.
                  And yes, manufacturers can make phones for everyone. They just need to make 2 variants; one with micro sd & headphone jack, one without. Problem solved. They can make 3 or 5 or even 10 variants of the same series, so making 2 phones should be much easier.
                  Also, micro sd is very reliable in my experience. My Nokia 3660 dead years ago but the 32mb card inside still works today. 2gb card i have in Nokia c6 also still works. My current 32gb card was in 3 different phones. Sure, internal storage may be more reliable, but when the phone dies, the data is unrecoverable.

At this point whining about it ain't gonna do anything but annoy people. We have to accept it. FE phones are supposed to be more affordable S phones but with mostly the same interior, so they can have premium phones with their designs from their premium phones without having to paying much. Not about what the fans want.

                            Hey Samsung, real fans want headphone jack and sdcard slot. If the phone has neither, don't call it FE and don't release it.

No problems. It was also in my Note 9 for 12 months. The less cards are moved around the better my experience has been. With file transfer apps available nowadays there's much less need to do so. I'm an 11 year Android(Samsung) user. However because of that I'm less annoyed than in the past about any lack of an SD card slot. .

                                    e0ne199, 20 Jul 2022you think your internal memory is reliable? 😂By far much more reliable than some tiny piece of plastic. The higher card capacity and speed, the higher risk of failure, especially in modern overheating phones.

                                      FE is more affordable and you know very well they will never drop the price of the S22 enough.
