    Supposing this Snapdragon 800 will be able to support USB3.0 interface, but why Nokia did not include it? With that expandable microSD up to 64GB + inbuilt 32GB, imagine how slow if you where to copy all your huge data such as 1080p videos to PC or vice versa?
    Note3 running on the same SoC and they are equipped with USB3.0 connectivity already.

    Probably because apart from the tech crowd, nobody else gives a rat's *** whether it's USB 2.0 or USB 3.0. Considering that fact, how many people do you know who have a USB 3.0 port on their computers? Even those who bought a recent computer/laptop, how many among them will know which port is exactly 3.0? I'm not saying they shouldn't have gone with 3.0, but it's not a deal breaker.

    WP is mostly a MS product, so WP may currently not be USB3 compatible.

    The important thing is whether the hardware physically supports it. Just because the spec doesn't currently say it, doesn't mean it cant be upgraded at a later date (like is going to happen for Bluetooth 4.0) when WP becomes USB3 compatible.

    Is not going to be upgradable in future. USB3.0 is using 5pins instead of 4pins for USB2.0. Nowadays all new laptops and desktop PC already equipped with this. Even portable HDD and flash drive also got usb3.

    And has anyone physically looked at the port to be sure? We just have a spec sheet that says USB2. Doesn't necessarily mean its not a USB3 port.
