Decent built in storage on phones adds silly money to phone price, whereas SD cards are cheap & most people have a few knocking around.

Watching video or MP3 listening from SD card is good on commute (any cloudy services need wifi / good phone signal which can be a problem when commuting) .

I use SD card as cheap & easy extra storage, though admittedly not in habit of changing the SD card around, just occasionally alter the playlists on it for a bit of variety, but have not noticed any issues of apps using SD to store data when told not to, most apps are well behaved in what storage they use, & I only run a small set of apps.
