As time has gone on, there are certain smartphone features that have faded into existence. Removable batteries, IR blasters, and headphone jacks are all essentially extinct in 2020, despite being staple features just a few short years back.

Another feature that's become less common over the years is expandable storage. There are still plenty of phones that support it, but other phone makers have been adamant about not including it on their devices.

Some of our AC forum members recently started talking about whether or not they still use expandable storage here in 2020. This is what a few of them had to say:

I still do, even though my phone isn't close to being full.

I do even though I have plenty of internal storage. I use it mostly for high resolution music files and to back up other important stuff. I don't need it because of lack of space because I have 512GB internal.

I got a phone with 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage so I could finally say goodbye to the premature-death-ridden world of memory cards and the inconvenience that results. That and I can't use a memory card if I am using both SIM slots in my phone ;)
