This is a problem that really should not exist, but this is the cost associated with an awesome design. Some of you will criticize the decisions of Samsung stating that they are becoming more and more like Apple. As consumers we have been screaming for a more premium build quality. Every S4/S5/Note3/Note4 video echoed the sentiment that while the phones were great they just felt cheap. Plastic backs and an overall plastic build made for lighter weight devices and a higher profit margin for Samsung. Samsung finally delivered in the design category with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, but this came at the cost of a few of our beloved features.
Gone are the days of expandable storage, well at least built in expandable storage. There are still ways to add expandable removable storage to devices like the Note 4 and even the Galaxy S6 without having to rely on an external SD card slot. Touchwiz has OTG support built right into the software. On The Go Usb access previously required root, but now you can use this feature without the need to root your device. Simply grab a USB OTG Cable these run anywhere from $2-10 and then simply plug in a USB thumb drive you already own.
There is a much less cumbersome way to add storage to your Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge than the OTG cable. There are actually USB 2.0 flash drives that are small enough to attach to your keychain. You can store up to 128GB of files on these drives and carry them with you anywhere. This is the perfect place to store your library of music or movies for long trips.
