I take my phone into sprint. With no removable SD, I just handed them all my accounts, all my emails, all my passwords, confidential company documents, pictures, and phone contacts, calendar and the other 1001 documents I don't think I want to share with other people. With a removable sd card, I simply remove the sd card, take all of that information with me and not worry about someone in the repair shop telling a friend that he knows where I live and when I go on vacation. Or worst, If a group of people found out that some of my clients are going to go on vacation and they robbed them, it would destroy my company.
Removable SD card is simply better privacy. The way phone companies currently encrypt their phones allow the company to decrypt the phone (apple, samsung, htc, nokia, any good hacker, all of them can). If you encrypt your SD card using a 3rd party software, your personal information is protected from all attacks.
Having the memory I can not remove is a privacy and security risk and is unacceptable.
There are ways around this, for one if you voided the warranty on the phone then simply take it apart and rip out your storage.
What I have have done is to load anything I used daily to google drive or dropbox, both of which are free (combined 7GB) and I use my documents and korean audio books as needed when I want it. Also, for security having your SD Card isnt "more secure". You get your phone stolen? Welp, there goes those 1001 documents you had, and likely said perpetrator would have knowledge of said 3rd party, parallel processing has come a long way for GPU's and they are likely much cheaper than the information your trying to protect.
Also if your storing all your documents on the phone and never use a computer or have use for it with a printer for your company? It sounds to me like your ignoring every safe practice of the digital/mass storage age. You basically store everything in one place and dont make any back ups is what I can gather from your testimony and then complain here that HTC is the one with the bad product? If HTC forced automated backups you would be crying wolf for that as well.
It sounds like you need your own cloud server to store things at home as opposed to sticking everything in a local sd card. If your that concerned about security for your information, why would you store anything on your phone at all? when it can be taken? If your so concerned about a repair shop siphoning information then simply oversee the repairs being made, its obviously worth your time. If its not worth the time or the repair wont allow oversight then simply take your business elsewhere.
I fail to see how some 3rd party app would be your savior in all this, it was developed by one person it can be cracked by another.

But you are correc, it is solely my opinion. And guess what I share my opinion. If htc decided not to shaft it customers, I would have a different opinion.
PS. Samsung is no angel. Still waiting for 50% of the features they promised for the s4, like knoxs, health options, and and the dozen other features. And their random shutdown and will not reboot until plugged in is annoying.
This "sharp" edge your referring to is lost on me. Im sitting here applying abnormal pressure to any and all edges and still cant seem to find in real "sharpness" to them. There is an edge, yes. Is this in any way or form sharp? No.
Sharing your opinion is one thing, however so far you have shown me that you did not educate yourself on what you had acquired (regardless of if you were the one to purchase said device), basically being an uneducated consumer and then being disgruntled about it.
