Take part in our survey, write us in the comments here and don't forget to tell us your opinion on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and use the hashtag #GIGAfragt.
At the end of July we will look at the result together.
GIGA editor Kaan Gürayer thinks:
I switched to iPhone privately two years ago, so the question is not currently relevant for me. Before that, however, I only used Android smartphones for eight years. The microSD slot was indispensable for me, especially in the early days of Android, but it has gradually deteriorated over the years. I am not a digital messi who must have his 200 GB music collection with me on the go. Most Android smartphones, especially in the upper class, come with so much memory that a microSD card is hardly necessary for the average user.
