Top 6 Samsung Phones with SD Card Slot

There are two types of the sd card slot. There is a dedicated slot and there is a hybrid slot.

A hybrid or shared slot means that to use an SD card, you will have to sacrifice a sim slot. So instead of two sim cards and an sd card as the case is with a dedicated slot, you will have to settle for one sim and an sd card.

For years now, Samsung has not announced a flagship with an sd card slot. So, the devices on this list are all mid-range phones.

Final Thought

Personally, if I am buying a Samsung phone with at least 256GB of internal memory, I don’t need external storage, but then we are all different and it is worth noting that I am neither a gamer nor a YouTuber.

If you do what consumes a lot of storage, you shouldn’t just go for phones that come with an SD card but also ones with a lot of internal storage; say at least 256GB.
