The one time cost SD card storage was removed to promote the recurring cost model of Onedrive storage. HORRIBLE solution as unlike local storage the cloud storage option is NOT always available AND COSTS MORE.

The s21s don't have a slot for an SD card; that's why I opted for the 512gb internal storage model of the s21 ultra 5g. I was a bit skeptical at first, but 512gb is A LOT of space,  so I don't I'll miss it

Was ready to buy two 512 S21 Ultras, one for me, one for my wife, and the lack of SD card support was the deal breaker. Why should I downgrade my storage? Cloud is NOT the same as having local storage. The speed of SD storage is not an issue, the lack of SD storage is the issue.
It stinks to be stuck in 512 and having to rely on the cloud! I use cloud storage, yes, but as a backup, because it is never efficient enough or easily accessible. You want slow storage? You want spotty storage retrieval? Go with cloud.
No SD card slot, no buy.

@Selvin2000 @EatherSpace @shukujo USB-C flash drives are also an option, and pretty cheap. I'm personally not going to miss having an SD card.

Same here.  I've got 400gb more left on my Ultra than I ever used with an SD card but I do realize that everyone's different in their use.

Bring back the SD card slots.     Here's why

Cloud Storage does not work for Apps.  

Cloud Storage is a recurring charge

Once you own the phone, and did not opt for more memory, you're stuck.

The price of 512G of memory build in is more expensive that the price of SD memory.

S21 Ultra on you web-site does not have a 512G option.

I am considering the A52  because it has a SD card slot, but no wireless charging.  Hmm.  Samsung.. Please don't tell us that we don't need a SD card, that should be our decision on what we need/want.
