Pointless? Hardly. With external SD card, i can have as much music, films and roms as i want. Started playing a lot more ps1 games and need the space for the games.

I'd never buy a phone that didn't have external card support.

It's not pointless, you're just having a hard time doing what you want to with it. I'm sure you'll figure it out eventually

Well come on guys, of course it's not pointless - it's just as good as before IF you root and MOD your device. Yes of course that's the way to go........ I could not live without ROOT, CWM and Xposed FW. But........ Maybe not everybody want.... or..... can root! And for them Kitkat and external sdcard SUCKS big time!

Still, when running completely stock, the external SD card comes in very handy! When using offline GPS like TomTom or Sygic you can still use the maps on your external SD and all photo's you make and filming you do can go directly on the external SD. Not to forget all the other media you can put on it.
It is virtually impossible to fill up your internal SD with just apps, so I do not see the real problem to be honest. I guess everyone is also not using any secure lock screen? You might as well if you use your external SD for apps since it is easy to read out all the data of those apps anyway.
