Made by HTC when they weren't doing MicroSD slots. So is basically an iPad Air 2 competitor (as this is 4:3 screen instead of the usual android 16:9).

If you have android then ideal!

Wrong. Google don't have micro-sd card slots on their Nexus line. This is no exception.

I'd like to vote hot but I made the mistake of getting a 16GB tablet. It's just not enough in the long run.

if only it had 16:9 display for media!



HTC have used SD slots for many years way before this, I had on

Was gonna say Google just put the Nexus range out to tender this time HTC won, time before it was LG but these companies just make the Google design.

What's wrong? This does have a MicroSD does it?

Oh no, this doesn't have a micro-sd card slot, did I not say that? I was trying to help others by pointing that out. But thanks for the flame rather than being helpful and simply adding that this is the same for all Nexus'.

Guys, sorry I should've said you can use a USB OTG lead to connect USB memory sticks if you want to watch movies etc (but it is 4:3 as hartge says, so you'll get black lines).

"Made by HTC when they weren't doing MicroSD slots." is wrong.

Have been using a 64GB USB stick and a OTG lead for ages with my Nexus 7. Works perfectly.
Tempted for £206-odd, the plastic surround on my N7 is starting to chip at the corners.

So these refurbs are all the broken ones with terrible build and display issues?

There's an article about Asus refurbs I read a few months ago. It says the refurbs have been fixed by Asus and are fully tested, as opposed to the new ones which aren't. If refurb is significantly cheaper the only downside is the lesser warranty, if this was 2-year I'd be all over it.

But it's not an Asus it's made by HTC.

This came out six months after the HTC One M8, which did have a MicroSD slot so definitely not the reason behind the lack of MSD support, this is Googles fault. They want you to use their cloud services for your data storage and music playback etc, so they limit your storage option, they don't even offer a 64GB or 1280GB option and make the 32GB model too much of a price hike to make sense, (£100 for an extra 16GB not even Apple do that anymore.).

I don't think Google gained many fans with their offerings last year, neither the nexus 6 or 9 turned heads, they actually made Apples offerings look more appealing.

Don't forget their CIA connections, micro SD storage can't be tracked so easily.

I have a 16gb nexus 10 and it's fine, surely everyone is streaming things these days, at least that is what Apple and the Nexus tablets must be assuming?

However I can see that if someone wanted to install a lot of big games it would be a problem.

I have never seen the mention of the old "no sd slot" go so badly, lol. It's one of those phrases you see repeatedly on here. "no sd slot" must be in the top ten of most said phrases on this site.

Nexus Media Importer (app that allows you to access USB memory via an OTG cable) now supports exFAT. I have personally used it with 64GB USB memory sticks. HTH

Mmmm. Decent saving off new but only six months guarantee. Not in the market for an android tablet at the moment but if I was, I'd be very tempted by this despite the obvious risks. Have some heat.

Not exactly what happened, I never said it had an SD card slot... quite … Not exactly what happened, I never said it had an SD card slot... quite the opposite and that was the crux of my post. But I was wrong to say anything about HTC, so I am very sorry about that and next time I'll be less specific. My main point was to inform those interested that this didn't have a Micro-SD card slot, not that HTC worse than Google or vice-versa (Something like Apple vs PC fights on here, most of us aren't bothered by and are more interested in the deal). Being flamed still isn't nice and I think that's Resa6969's point. Thank you. For me it's water off a duck's back but I wouldn't want other new HUKDers trying to help people make valid choices being put off from making comments with good and relevant information.Back on topic - here's my new revised and more thought out post for anyone seriously interested in this:Guys, this does not have an SD or Micro-SD card slot and has only 16GB of internal storage of which approx 5GB is used by the operating system. Therefore, you will only have 11GB of storage space for movies, music, pictures, documents etc.However, if you want to watch the occasional big film (unto 4GB as OTG only supports FAT32) or want to store lots of music then you could purchase one of these http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/kingston-technology-32gb-usb-otg-3-0-micro-duo-flash-drive-8-49-delivered-base-2181395 or 64gb is available for 14.99, just search HUKD.But this is 4:3 which isn't ideal for watching films as anyone who has an iPad knows as you end up with black bars at the top and bottom. So if you watch a lot of films, think of getting something else with a Micro-SD slot (as again, this one doesn't have one).In conclusion, if you are using this for e-mails, surfing the web and occasional extra tablet stuff, then actually, I think it's ideal. And I think that's probably 90%+ of use out there.I hope that helps someone.Thank you and good night.



You sure about that fat32 limit with OTG? My understanding was that it was simply a USB negotiation protocol, for handling master/slave, and whatever is sent down the pipe is just USB data that can be for any purpose. If there's a limit I would think it would be in the software, speciifcally the OS. Which potentially might change in the future.

But if the stick is formatted to FAT32 it'll obv still be 4GB. I haven't tested the exFAT thing but will do soon. Also not sure why you would have a 4GB+ film on your OTG stick. Probably best to use handbrake and re-encode it to a smaller format.

rev6

Re-encode it to a lower quality?



Yeah for a 9-inch tablet you probably don't need a 8gb full bluray rip.

I encode (mainly HD TV) stuff at 1024x768 for my iPad w/retina which isn't massively different on my eyes to 720x576 SD TV rips. But YMMV.

Also I think Nexus 9 is Android 5.0? And Android 5.0 supports H.265? If so, then re-encoding it to this format with the correct settings can significantly reduce file sizes with little loss in quality. Food for thought for anyone with Android 5.0 looking to squeeze as many movies on as possible for a long trip!

Quality not resolution. Android 5.0 supports H.265 but the SoC has do too which the K1 does. I wouldn't be using H.265 yet as it's as rare as a 4k TV broadcast.
You could split the movies too.

I have the Nexus 9, can someone recommend a good leather zip case for this with a snug fit.

Thanks

They don't include micro SD mainly because stock android doesn't natively support micro SD cards. Which is why only modified versions of android from Samsung and Sony have micro SD slots. Its a shame because they would sell so much more, but I don't think they want external sources interfering with their 'stock' experience.

It does natively support micro-sd cards just not "move to sd card". I don't use mine for applications but for everything else.
