The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge bring back SD card expandable storage to Samsung's flagship line, but unfortunately that comes with a rather large downside for some potential buyers. At least when it comes to the phones launching in the U.S., your only choice for internal storage is 32GB — no further 64 and 128GB options will be available at launch like last year.
That's not too big of a deal for the majority of folks who were likely to buy the base model with 32GB of storage anyway, and of course the addition of an SD card slot alleviates many of the issues, but not having a higher capacity storage option available for those who want to spend the extra dough up front is definitely a downer. You'll have to also remember that the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge won't offer Marshmallow's new "adoptable storage" feature, meaning the SD card will still act as it did in Lollipop — best-used for media storage, and some less-intense apps.
