Yeah that's true, I heard 6.x uses your internal/ext. storage and combines it. Which is a great idea!

For me, having the S4 still, with 1gb of ram, is just terrible, so maybe that's where I'm having my issues on the ram front, just need more!

So the better preference would be to buy outright.
In theory, but in practice it's just not happening.

Which is why I would stick to a Nexus typically and why I keep hoping for a Samsung made Nexus again.
I meant the latching system - once a phone doesn't work because the battery won't stay in because the tab on the left broke and the bottom won't latch, or it falls out in the middle of doing something or when you need it most, somebody's gonna raise a fit.

It's still expandable storage. It just doesn't extend to the SD cards.

They should have implemented it as mandated under MM, but I can see their side of things too (weak argument is still an argument).

Maybe they'll open it up sometime or someone will find out how to enable it through mods.

I'm making an S7 thread.

I just can't buy another non-nexus phone I don't think, because updates are crucial it seems like now. Sammy/LG don't seem to be on the updates, or the updates ruin their phones.

So battery life, and now android updates, are the 2 most important things to me at this time.
