Samsung officially launched its Galaxy S23 Series, and the device has some of the best hardware in its class and improvements over the Samsung Galaxy S23 Series. Many people believe that, like the Samsung Galaxy S23, which does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack, the Galaxy S23 does not have expandable storage via microSD Card.

Since Google doesn’t allow users to install apps on external storage, external storage is still useful for storing personal data, including documents, photos, and videos. A lot of people don’t buy the high-end Galaxy S23 series because of how expensive it has become.Not to mention, the internal storage of the device is much faster and better than the external storage. However, Samsung does sell high-speed storage class 10 MicroSD cards, but the microSD Card expandable storage is no longer supported.

Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Series doesn’t have a microSD card.

The company has increased the base storage configuration for the Galaxy S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra from 128GB to 256GB, which is UFS 4.0, making it quite faster, though the 128GB is still UFS 3.1. You can still use cloud storage to back up or store your files, but if you don’t want to, then you can get an external USB-C SSD to store your files. We know that it’s not a convenient method to have external storage in this form and can’t replace the use of a microSD card.

Google has made the Android OS in such a way that nowadays, the microSD Card is less usable, and the industry is moving forward with portability and going toward cloud storage. It may be a little less convenient, but it is superior and more affordable overall, and once you get used to it, it’s a much better experience.

It might be a deal breaker, especially in the Asia-Pacific region, India, and other countries where people are more comfortable with microSD Cards. That’s not all; the wireless charging of the device has been downgraded from 15W to 10W for some regions, but it still continues to provide long-term software support, as the Galaxy S23 Series will have 4 years of major software updates and 4 years of security patches.
