    I'm one of those pricks who is always going to want an SD card slot, regardless of how much on board there is. This is because I occasionally use my phone for editing video which comes out of the camera on a micro SD. Phones are becoming more powerful with greater potential but less versatile as more and more connections are removed.

    I charge whilst listening to music / youtube almost every day and so the extra connections that they seem hell bent on removing are essential for me. I think the SD card slot should remain for a few reasons, including redundancy for crucial files. If I have something really important and I'm possibly going to be working on it somewhere where 4G signal is dodgy, I'm gonna want a local copy but if it's that crucial I'll want to store it in two places, one of these being the SD card and one on the phone. Additionally, if you can just pop out an SD card, you can hand someone that huge video file a lot quicker than you can send it.

    It all depends on how you use your phone but I much prefer a decent amount of storage for apps and SD on top. More features / connectivity options = more better.

    Actually, thinking about it, in the land of the dongle can you plug a card reader into USB-C on mobiles? Or a USB memory stick (obviously with some kind of adaptor)?

    Adaptor isn't really required anymore. I habitually carry a 64GB USB-A/USB-C memory stick around (Kingston DataTraveller MicroDuo 3C)

    How about a battery powered wireless card reader, with a bit of storage to boot?

    Personally, I just use my SD card for music so more installed storage would remove my need for an SD card
