Different user types, some need the "un-necessities".

For me the SD was somewhat necessary, because my S4 mini has only 8 GB on board at the first place. Second reason with my 32GB SD I have all the room open to add much more data/music and make virtually unlimited amount of photos while at that and can upgrade to 64GB if necessary. Third reason is that I have my photos and music stored there, I can flash and wipe my phone and not move stuff, or in case it bricks or breaks, chances that I can retrieve the data from the phone without problems are rather high.

SD rocks in may ways. I use my PC in similar ways, got my data and games stored on separate drives, so if I need to format the OS drive, everything there can/needs to be reinstalled.

Power users have had the need to switch out batteries for a while now since they switched out of their blackberries for power hungry devices. Some like the nexus 4 and lumia 800 couldn't last half a day. Having to charge it on the go is a hassel; Being able to switch out a battery to very convenient.

Most people actually need, prefer removeable battery and sd card from their phone.

Negatory, most people prefer, but not need.

Note3

The size may seem scary but its so thin you wont know its in your pocket. I own a note2 and that is still good enough to make me okay waiting till the note4. The only other phone I ever kept 2yrs was the droid x lol

I settled for a nokia 920(windows phone) against the salesmans advise to get a android phone. I found it easy to get used to, fast to navigate and well suported on the app front(all of witch the salesman claimed otherwise). Lastly it feels very rugged and solid as a nokia should. DlK22p

I'd buy Note 3. Has the best benchmark score atm and has a beautiful build. Wider screen is also a plus for me!thumb.gif

Has Anyone picked up a Samsung galaxy S4 i9506? I'm tempted to buy this off of ebay, or should I wait for the S5.

I'd be looking at a Moto X most likely.

I'm tired of Samsung being the only phone manufacturer for Android that people buy, so I'm supporting someone else.
