100GB of bundled, free-for-two-years OneDrive cloud storage is said to be the remedy for the missing expansion slot. Samsung makes that assertion by assuming you've got an LTE connection with plenty of download allowance to spare.
There must be a good number of Mobile providers rubbing their hands with glee at this.
Walk into any large Tesco's at the moment and see their package offers. 500Mb or 1Gb is not uncommon. This is easily used up with a few uploads to the cloud.
Imagine the punters face when they see their data bill for their backups....
The more savvy of us will make sure that this is strictly controlled. The average sucker? not a chance.
I even wonder if a few operators might make 'backup everything to the cloud' a default=ON 'feature' with some offerings.
