According to a report from TechInsider, LG public relations representative Monica Levy says the G5 does come with adoptable storage feature, “Happy to inform you that LG’s newest flagship does support Android’s adoptable storage feature”.
At MWC, Samsung unveiled its latest flagship Galaxy S7 smartphone with upgraded features and bumped up innards. Customers would be expecting to receive their S7 by Verizon once they’ve preordered or they could always wait till the official launch in stores on the 11th of March.
Samsung said that it decided not to use the Android M adoptive storage.
Adoptable storage allows users to install apps and games on memory cards instead of stuffing everything in the phone’s internal memory.
Samsung Malaysia Electronics IM Division Product Manager Go Benn Lee said the Galaxy S7 Edge’s dual pixel camera would deliver brighter and sharper images, even in low light. This happening may be unexpected for many users and the company doesn’t wasn’t them to lose their files. Second, once Marshmallow starts using a card for adoptable storage, it can not be read by other devices, so it loses this ability to be used for file transfer. The Adoptable Storage mainly targets the emerging markets wherein devices that only have 4-8GB of onboard storage are common. It’s certainly going to disappoint Malaysian Samsung fans who had plans to get an S7; their only option is probably to buy one from neighbouring Singapore or pony up the higher prices from sellers such as Directd. It is powered by a 3,000mAh and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow as it comes out of the box. On the other hand, LG has also announced the LG G5 smartphone. It is engineered with a 2.1GHz processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
