Future of expandable storage?
With Google dropping microsd support from the Nexus line years ago and most 2013 flagships not including them anymore either, what can we expect for the future of expandable storage?
I have a GS3 with a 64GB microsd card and about 50GB of music on it (and like to listen to all of it on shuffle)...if I want to upgrade and still use my microsd card I'm basically limited to another Samsung device (which I'm not that interested in doing). I know there's cloud storage options, but I'm yet to find a player/experience as good as using PowerAmp. Google Music is a great service but I hate the app's interface..complete form over function. Plus cloud storage requires good data reception, which is not always available. There's also USB OTG options (the Meenova Reader looks pretty good) but I don't know how seamless that would be (not to mention having to plug it in every time)
I wouldn't mind the lack of microsd as much if phones came with 64GB, but very few do. I realize carriers probably don't have much incentive to offer more storage, as more cloud usage means more data usage which means more money for them.
Should I basically just accept that I won't be able to carry all my music around in the future and adjust my habits accordingly?
