Yes, we get that some want memory card slot and removable battery. But, do you NEED it? Nope! Would it make One better? NO! It wouldn’t. If you can prove that: Please do.
So: why you people then want it? To be honest: I don’t even know any more. I think that a part of it is that iphone got it. So? apple aren’t stupid: there’s a reason is doesn’t got a memory card or removable battery. It’s called: stability, and you get rid of all phones turned into toast by crappy 3rd party batteries. Nexus phones doesn’t got it either. For a reason.
So: why does phones got removable batteries to begin with? Simply since batteries wasn’t that good first, they was even crap. Same reason with memory card: cheapest way to give you a place for storage. It’s 2013 now, things have moved on. I remember floppy disks and are very glad that they are a thing of the past. Sure, memory cards are handy for: what really? Actually: I use my micro-sd with an adapter in my digital camera. That’s a good place for a memory card, in a digital camera.
Sure, I get some arguments in the memory card “war”. But, if 32GB isn’t enough: perhaps you need to rethink just what you put on the phone. I can’t get ALL I want even with five x 64GB cards, so I need to think a bit with what I bring. And: if I’m changing cards that often: something will happen, at least for me.
