The Galaxy Note 7, with Adoptable Storage, would showcase the strength of microSD card storage

Samsung has brought back microSD card storage in the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, having made the feature cooperate with the company’s faster flash memory (UFS 2.0) that made its first appearance in the Galaxy Note 5. Around the time of the official announcement, it was believed that the pre-installed Marshmallow sweetness would bring Adoptable Storage, an implementation that lets you insert a microSD card and use it for additional internal storage. In other words, in the same way that you can save all apps, photos, screenshots, downloads, and even Twitter images (for example) to your device’s internal storage, you’d be able to do the same with adoptable storage. Adoptable storage would treat your microSD card as additional internal storage and would work in the same way as native storage.

Samsung made a decision not to introduce Adoptable Storage into the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge because the company’s consumer research indicates its consumer base wants the freedom to transport microSD cards from its phones to other portable devices, a freedom that would be impossible with Adoptable Storage.

And yet, I want Adoptable Storage. I understand that my view here disagrees with Samsung’s consumer research, but I want Adoptable Storage in the Galaxy Note 7. Not only do I want it; I also think there are some excellent reasons why Samsung should go with Adoptable Storage in the upcoming “Galaxy.” Here are my two reasons.
