Micro SD Card, also named TF Card, which was the most important tool to smartphones since their risen. But 2 years ago, more and more smartphones began to use built-in storage, instead of using Micro SD Cards.
Google started the project “Removing Micro SD Cards” long time ago, and the reason is that those cellphones which are using Micro SD Cards have Security and performance hidden troubles. But what if a user lost his cellphone, it is very easy to pull Micro SD Cards out, and some lawbreakers could easily steal the information in the Micro SD Card and sell them. In another way, software installed on Micro SD Cards will cause file errors of different accounts which might cause apps crush or data lose.
After the project ran, manufacturers not only can solve many problems that Micro SD Cards brought to phones but also can make devices slimmer for better looking. Without the extra spaces that Micro SD Cards brought, users could only choose phones with large storage, and 16GB version and 32 GB version usually have a difference of a hundred dollars.
For example, Apple latest product, iPhone 6s 16GB needs 649 dollars while the prices of 64GB and 128GB are 749 dollars and 849 dollars. Obviously, the cost of Flash Chips are not 100 dollars per chip, but within selling products classified into different storage versions, manufacturers like Apple, could make more money because the profit will go higher with the larger storage that user chose.
Many e-pals think, Micro SD Cards absolutely have strengths in cost performance and convenience, and they can endure some slaws. After all, security issues are not necessarily events.
