[Poll Results] If the Galaxy Note 10 doesn’t have a microSD slot, will you skip it?

A rather unsettling rumor about the Galaxy Note 10 came up during the weekend. It claimed that the Galaxy Note 10 won’t have a microSD card slot. Forget the 3.5mm headphone jack, if this turns out to be true, the criticism is bound to be deafening.

The rumor claimed that it would only be the Galaxy Note 10 Pro that comes with a microSD card slot. Customers who opt for the smaller and cheaper model will have no option to externally expand the storage. Samsung has done this once before, in 2015 to be precise, but rolled back the decision merely a year later.

So the question is, would you skip the Galaxy Note 10 if it does indeed come without a microSD slot? Do you think that it doesn’t make much sense for a Galaxy Note flagship to ship without one? Or are you so keen on the Note series that you’d begrudgingly pay for the more expensive Galaxy Note 10 Pro just for the microSD card slot? Please do vote below and share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

Results: As we had expected, a majority of voters (57 percent) feel a Galaxy Note flagship without the convenience of microSD expansion makes little sense. 28 percent of voters said the lack of a microSD slot doesn’t affect them, while 15 percent said they would choose the Galaxy Note 10 Pro (now confirmed to be launching as the Galaxy Note 10+) if the regular one doesn’t have a microSD slot.

If the Galaxy Note 10 doesn't have a microSD slot, will you skip it?

I wouldn’t have too much of a problem with not having the SD Card slot, if the Note 10 has a minimum of 512 GB of internal storage. I of course cannot say the same for other users, they may have different needs for having removable storage. The way to satisfy others (not everyone) may be to go with 1GB of internal storage. The Note is supposed to be the “Business” model, so expandable storage, SIM and 3.5MM jacks are some of those things associated with the business model. Taking things away causes people (and companies) to look for those… Read more »

I will skip it if it doesn’t have the 5X optical zoom

If the new note has a minimum of 512 gb of internal storage, why would I give a damn bout a microSD ?

You might not use it, but we do, we often copy engineering files on site and removable storage is very handy for us.

You’re not the only user. Many business users find removable storage very convenient.

In all fairness he didn’t say he was the only user that’s why he said why would I give a damn not why would you give a damn Jesus can someone have an opinion

Of course it will have an SD card slot, and more than likely a headphone jack too from what I am hearing here.

With the Storage at 512Gb or 1Tb now I am not as fussed with the model having an SD card as long as storage keeps growing in the future but I would prefer to have Micro SD as an option.

Mostly I store photos, videos and music on the SD card keeping the internal storage free and find its handy to have. Until this is confirmed i’ll wait and see what Samsung does.

1TB will be good as a basic model.

We will see the end result, but a lot of “missing” starts to pop up. It will end up that s10 series will have more features and ports than the note 10 and this is kinda absurd. Note was the “all in one” for years.

Next step will be removing Android 😆

Suggestion, remove: SD, SIM, 3.5 mm jack and most importantly – the pen. Hello iPhone! I’m sick and tired of them all constantly removing, removing, and not innovating at all. For me Samsung has produced their pinnacle of the Note series and that was the Note4. Mine is still working like a champ. I have 8 and 9 also, but I just love the 4. Samsung is falling behind in cameras department for years. One funny thing, for me, is that Samsung manufactures screens for Apple, and Apple manages to calibrate theirs almost to perfection, and Samsung just can’t or… Read more »

The whole point of an SD for me is so that I don’t have to worry as much about internal (meaning 128GB or heck 64GB would be just fine considering it would just be apps). Without it I’d have to shell out more for a model with more internal storage. Hell no, I’m going to buy the S10+ if this is true.

If this happens, I will keep my S10+ considering to switch back to iPhone in the future as Samsung is removing their advantages (microSD, headphone jack) against iPhone.

I have the Galaxy S10 plus 1 terabyte Edition and I still love my SD card I have used 166 gigabytes out of internal and 76 out of my 256gb SD card them all digital movies they give you with Blu-rays are not small

It depends on the internal storage of the Base model. If it hast 512GB IT would be enough for me.

my personal upgrade cycle means i will be missing the note10 anyway, but if i was to get it i would be getting the pro, and not begrudgingly.

i look at it as just the marketing bods doing what they do, the note 10 pro, is just the note…. the note 10 is more like a cut down version to hide the price bump in the pro version.

I have been a note lover for centuries and a few S series, but this one I will pass on, as my present device has all the recent features needed and no absence of missing hardware.
Pior trade in was a perfectly working Note 9. I will keep what I have and have what works.
I am DONE upgrading like weather changing every 3 months.

perhaps Samsung should take a leaf from Huawei and equip the non pro with headphone hack and sd card slot while the pro shouldn’t have it but should be compensated with large inbuilt memory, great sound on display and large battery

I didn’t vote as it will have an SD card slot……..and a headphone jack.

I think you are right. The Note is even a more business phone than S series. Removable storage can be important in some business situations so I think it will be there. Possibly if they make base storage 512gb it will be gone but that will be awkward for some businesses. The headphone jack I’m not completely sure but my German colleague with the Note9 was told by a Samsung shop employee that it will have a headphone jack for sure. We will see, though I remember you were right when you said the S10 will definitely have a jack… Read more »

Yes, we will see if I’m right again……or not! Lol. For our business removable storage is very good to have, as on engineering sites, particularly greenfield sites in remote areas it can be easier just to send an SD card to a colleague elsewhere on the site. It’s one of the capabilities than business users expect from the Note, to make our job easier, not more difficult. Right this moment I am on a project in Italy that has great mobile coverage so it’s not a problem but when the job is in Indonesia or the Philippines for example, we… Read more »

I have the Note 9 already so with no SD card slot on the Note10 I will just wait for a future Note device when mine is more outdated.

smart move, I too.

I, personally, do not get attached to hardware features. I’ll be prepared to pre-order the Pro as soon as sales commence.

C’mon! Are they really serious about it? I thought they will be removing the headphone jack/port only? If they will be removing the miroSD slot as well, sorry but I’ll skip the Note 10. Don’t repeat the history on the S6/S6 Edge.

and don’t repeat the history on the Note 5.

You have two negative answers and one positive one. This is how you skew results…
Maybe you should have added a 4th option that says something like “Yes. I’ve had it with Samsung removing basic features from flagships”.

Yeah, often polls with pre selected answers have none that are correct and none that are even a best choice.
