I agree. The lack of a Micro SD card makes this a nonstarter for me. I am regularly out of range, and losing the ability to access podcasts and music I have downloaded that far exceed the internal memory capacity is the reason I skipped Pixel and went with Samsung on the last 2 phones. Does anybody have a suggestion for their next phone while Samsung gets their act together?

First, the S10 5G isn't on the OneUI update list that SAMSUNG sent to me, but the S10 Lite is. I hope thats just a screw-up. 

 
Second - The S21 series...WHY ARE YOU TAKING AWAY FEATURES?? You NEED to offer an SD Card slot. Why lose the MST feature? ??
 
When we buy the top tier phone, we expect top tier specs. If I wanted a budget phone I'd buy OnePlus and You're making me consider it.

To me the SD card slot isn't that be of a deal, just have to download to the desktop. on MST, I looked it up and Samsung is saying more people are using Google Pay, and cause of Covid, and that then you cards are saved on Google for later use. And it just might be to stay competitive Samsung had to cut corners some where. But now the ball is in Apples court. They seem to follow what the other does, but that's my opinion

The removal of the SD card is an absolute deal breaker. Recent events have proven that cloud storage is neither safe nor secure. Also next time you find yourself without internet access and therefore unable to access your data, you will understand the value of the SD card.

I am not going upgrade my this year to Samsung Galaxy S21 because two reasons. First Samsung removed the Micro SD Card accessibility data transfer. Also the should increase the international phone storage to 1GB if they were planning to removed the Micro SD Card. Second, resoason is the phone resolution down grade to 1080 P instead keeping it 1440 or higher. I cannot go back to lower resolution now. Finally, I keeping my Galaxy S20 instead for one more year.

I think those are both fair points and I can't blame you for feeling this way. The SD Card thing is very unfortunate. The resolution, I understand why it sounds like a big downgrade on paper, and if you're very sensitive to your screen sharpness, I understand, I used to feel the same way, but with my Note 20 Ultra, I decided to go with 1080p and 120Hz refresh rate, and honestly, haven't noticed any difference in picture quality after maybe a day. Just my experience. Having an option to run at 1440p with 120Hz on S21 Ultra is awesome though!
