Apple recently had the great presentation of the new iPhone. The excitement generated by these new releases is incredible, but completely expected, I mean we are talking about Apple. The company that has people lining up outside of flagship stores 2 weeks before a new product launch. With all the fuss about, of course, I called my service provider and examined when they were going to do an upgrade, it made my mouth water at the prospect of a shiny new iPhone. Hanging up the phone satisfied with my upgrade potential, and already Googling the latest cases to protect my potential new phone, I stumbled upon an article advertising the largest SD card to date, a gigantic 512GB! It is true that it is not a Micro SD card, but it is the beginning of something. If SanDisk is making SD cards with such a powerful swipe, it won’t be long until the smaller version makes waves. There is already a 128 GB version. Apple is pretty much the only smartphone that doesn’t have a MicroSD slot.
I don’t know about you, but this really makes my new phone buying option much more difficult. As a current iPhone user, I know all the advantages of iPhones, the way they “just work,” the sleek design, the smart user interface, the programs that work in harmony with my Macbook, iPad, Apple TV, etc. I am also fully aware that the most annoying thing about my iPhone is its lousy excuse for the memory of just 16 GB! This is fine for the first month or so while using your new phone to its fullest capacity, but after a while you get that dreaded notification (no it’s not that your ex is in a relationship) “Insufficient memory, unable to take photo ” Then you end up going through your photo library in a kind of frenzy-killing massacre, only to end up wasting the moment you wanted to capture. It is a problem that we all find with Apple. They are stingy with the stock memory on their devices. They have us in the palm of your hand, if you want to get more memory, you have to pay for the larger version of the phone, sometimes they even release a larger version a couple of months after the initial launch. It is not useful at all.
So when I read that the iPhone 6 will have the largest memory yet (128GB), I saw a possible light on the horizon regarding enough storage in an Apple product. 128 GB is a lot right? See that it is 4 times the memory of the iPhone 6 with 128GB. With one of those on my SD card keychain, I will literally have four times the space of the iPhone 6 in the palm of my hand. The beauty of SD cards is that they are removable and interchangeable, so you can carry several on a keychain, one for your music, one for your photos, and one for your movies.
This means that if I can put up with, and avoid the fanatical Apple hype of the latest team at first, then there should be hope for me. It seems like Android could be a viable alternative for me. After spending time researching and researching the latest Android devices and devices. I have to admit that I am quite impressed. If you bought an HTC, Nexus or LG or any other Android phone, which not only has an open operating system, but has the versatility of having MicroSD memory cards, then it seems like you could start enjoying a completely new type of mobile phone.
So Apple, in all its glory, has some flaws, as we know, but I think one of its biggest flaws is that you’re locked into iOS. The operating system is elegant, its UX is charming and smooth as we all know, but you are locked in it. You have to use the Apple store to get applications, you have to use Apple-approved products, I didn’t care until I saw someone have their Android phone with Super Mario Smash Bros, with two controllers (Here) They sold me, that functionality open, together With MicroSD cards you can increase as you do. It is very appetizing.
Android’s appeal gets bigger as you can create some of the most useful recipes with If This Then That, which are not possible on iOS. It is an open operating system, to the extent that it will not void your warranty by loading a certain program on it. All of those things are good, but the fact that I can have a very large memory on my phone, for a relatively cheap price, is what makes me personally a convert, and when the time comes when the MicroSD card is released more big. I will be there with money on hand ready to get it. Great memory, which is interchangeable, that you can carry on a keychain, at a decent price.
