Agreed. I would not buy a phone (or a tablet) without expandable memory. What about people who like to watch movies or other videos, which use up a lot of memory, and are traveling or in other circumstances where they want to carry a bunch of movies with them? SD cards have become so cheap, that is very affordable to buy a bunch high capacity cards to store a video collection. I also would not rely entirely on cloud storage. It's great to have as an option, but I do not want to rely on it as the sole means of accessing the majority of my media.
