Am I the only one here who hates fags who obsess over their 500gb collection of horribly shitty hipster music?
They reject absolute god-tier phones because they can't store their gigantic shipload of shite music in lossless form because of no SD card slot, pic related.
If you are indeed that obsessed with your shite music, you would get a separate music player for it.
Your opinions are so varied that they reach near schizophrenia.
>If you are obsessed with your shite music, you would get a separate music player for it
And what would be the purpose of a smartphone if not to do all the tasks that can be done with it?
Your argument would be the same as
>If you are indeed that obsessed with your internet connectivity, you would get a laptop with a WWAN card for it
Yet you use your phone for internet connectivity in lieu of a laptop which is irrefutably the better form factor for such consumption.
Your opinion is garbage and so is your taste in telephones.
>Samsung Galaxy lineup
>Some of the highest end flagship phones on the market year after year
>Only ones with removable batteries and micro sd card slots consistently
Why is this? LG, HTC, Sony, Motorola, Apple? What the fuck? Why can't you do something so rock simple that Samsung has been doing for years and years and have proven is a major selling point in smartphone markets?
>Buy our smartphone, it's all you'll ever need
>What, you wanna use it to replace an iPod, one of the 3 key features the original iPhone was sold to do? Fuck off faggit, get a dedicated device, we ain't putting $0.05 worth of extra hardware on our $700 devices.
For as long as you keep this up I'll keep buying phones from 2012. Your move fuckers.
> absolute god-tier phones
> no SD card slot
Why the fuck would that be a god-tier phone?
God-tier phones have SD card slots.
> If you are indeed that obsessed with your shite music, you would get a separate music player for it.
No, you just have a good phone.
Honestly,. if you can't even store / play a bunch of music for a bunch of hundred hours (and maybe about a workday uninterrupted in terms of battery life), that's a *SHIT* smart phone.
Requirements for that are really not all that high.
>erry night, charge phone on media server
>erry sunday night, shuffle script removes 20 oldest (oldest being the longest period of time since an album was uploaded to the phone) albums
>erry sunday night, shuffle script uploads up to 20 albums not on the sdcard and not just removed
>mfw script only uploads albums it has never uploaded or hasn't uploaded in 6 months
>mfw 450gb database of music on phone is always morphing around
>mfw 2cool no face
That sounds like a pretty good solution if you have a gigantic collection of music. That you shuffle.
I'm guessing you at least select a few albums manually that you for sure want to be on there.
I'm fine with the sd card slot(s) being under the cover, right next to a removable battery and the sim slot(s).
No aesthetics ruined.
IMO it's also quite necessary. I *would* prefer it if the internal storage of the phone was entirely removable / replaceable, but this is the next best thing...
yeah, i have a 'safe' folder that gets checked first, and any albums in there are never uploaded and have their database dates reset so if i do remove them, they'll fall back into the shuffle right away.
the whole thing, annoyingly, takes calculating an albums md5 hash and storing that in a plaintext file in each albums root path. it was the only reasonable way to assign uuids to each album that also representing the album contents somehow, because mp3 meta data is the most inconsistent fucking thing ever.
That looks fuckin' godly. I can only guess that it's either:
A) too losable
B) too form factor hindering (my brand new sd card is a mm over spec and won't fucking fit!)
C) too expensive to bother manufacturing compared to -1) a simple silicon flap -2) fucking no covering at all.
Well the idea is that you stick it in and it's locked, and the only way to open it is to use a paperclip.
If you lose it during the one time you'll ever open the thing up, you probably would have lost the SD card too.
Hmm, well it DOES come with a tiny dot tool, correct? I'd be flabbergasted if my purchase said "To open the MicroSD slot, first retrieve a paperclip"...
But my real point is that, yes, that point-problem exists. If you don't personally know anyone who plays guitar or bass guitar, then maybe you don't know this but dropping a guitar pick on carpet means it's going to bounce at a low profile in a random direction for 1-4 feet. MicroSD cards do this too and I'd bet that MicroSD bay would also bounce away. Not saying that dropping stuff isn't the droppers fault, but it happens and needs to accounted for in design.
I know right? 99% of people don't need more than 16gb on their phone unless their storing illegal pirated music/movies. If you're the rare 1%, there's always iCloud™ or Google Drive™.
Pay attention retards, the samsung threads are always fucking stupid questions that noone would ever think of or actually care about
>tfw I found it at Walmart for $50 and bought it thinking it was a good deal
>later went to Best Buy and found the same card for $25
>bought two, returned the Walmart one
This is the kind of shit-tier "reasoning" i would expect from
1: A shill
2: Someone with aspergers syndrome
Since this is 4chan, Im going to assume it's the second.
>NO STOP USING ELECTRONICS IN A WAY I WOULDN'T YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG IT'S NOT GOING TO BE AS GOOD THINK OF THE MINUTE DETAILS
Remind me of that chinless fuck from high school and his thin-rimmed glasses. His name was mark and his mother was there at least twice a week because of his "disorder".
He would hover over peoples shoulders and berate them for not using extremely specific "superior" combinations of items or methods instead of general purpose things that just got the job done.
>Yfw he yelled about how sporks were "fucking shit" during lunch and called a girl "fucking retarded whore" when she said it wasn't a big deal
>Yfw he was expelled for bringing a knife and fork that day
Because business sense
No SD card slot = customers have to pay for "cloud" services or pay more for extra storage (8->16->32GB markups)
Stuck battery = The amount of situations where replacing the phone is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY increases, 0.5mm of extra thinness to brag about and call people "brick toting luddites" over
You´re mom pussy is poisoning the dicks of young people
>can't spell 'the'
>felt so stupid he corrected it
What a faggot, opinion discarded
Well the argument is that some people (granted they may be super aspies or just tech idiots) reject devices because they don't satisfy all of the requirements they are looking for in that type of device.
... which makes them cautious consumers. I'm guessing OP has a particular person or persons in mind that won't go in for a device with insufficient or non-expandable storage and OP is hatin' cause some friend/family member/etc.. doesn't want to be consumer sold on a specific device or device specification range.
Even if you added in all the live/compilations/box sets there's no goddamn way you're going to have 25GB of music. Hell, even all that in FLAC would be a fucking stretch.
I dunno, it's probably all their concert DVDs and shit too. There was another one, that was the entire discography at like 9GB in ALAC, but that one didn't prove my point quite so well, so I picked the other one.
Do you hear yourself taking op?
>Buy a separate device and carry two things instead of getting this one device that does both.
That's the exact opposite of why I want a smartphone.
Look I get that you don't need one, and that's perfectly fine.
But I do.
And I'm not even talking about music.
Tons of other good uses.
Ex, keep a ubuntu distro on your phone.
My phone has now replaced my pocket thumb drive as well, couldn't do that without an sd card, it'd fill up much too fast.
