87% of users(12.03 16:45) have never known how good is removable storage. They should simply bin their smartphones and start using feature phones.
64GB storage with an SD slot is the perfect setup, its a comfortable internal amount but with room to grow if you need it.
Anonymous, 03 Dec 201764GB is not good for long term use.
128GB is the best which is more than enough.
256GB is o... moreAll wrong.
Depending on what you do, even 16GB can be enough (I use mirrorless for photos).
Also microSD support means you don't have to care about actual storage support.
Even without microsd you cans tore on the could. Finally wireless internet is dead cheap to most countries.
In short, storage doesn't matter. And you never lose anything no matter which version you use (use cloud, or your Nas w FTP at worse). Shallow article.
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2017All flagships should have at least 128GB of storage.I can understand majority say 64GB on this poll.
But I'm rocking HTC U11 128gigs version, and I can't tell you how luxurious to save pics, video, or anything I want with worry-free feelings!
mir, 03 Dec 2017You forgot that the cache will also eat into the phone's internal memory. So a 16gb phone is j... moreBeen using my 16gb lg g3 (with sd card) for more than 3 years and never run out of memory.
I think more so flagship phones should have minimum 64gb and a microsd slot, mid range 32-64 and microsd slot and lower end should be 16gb and a slot. Flash memory is very cheap nowadays which is why 8 think companies get away with storage options and also cloud storage, but you are reliant on a decent data connection for that.
For me 32GB plus sd card
Currently using device with 16GB plus newly 64GB card
Internal left 3GB, cache taken alot of space.
Need regulary do cleaning job
All phones should have Micro SD card expansion. Then storage and data transfer is a none issue. That's one of the reasons I have never owned and never will own an Iphone. Or any so called "flagship" that takes away useful features.
64 GB is good enough for the time being, but as 4K video starting to be norm(or HDR video) 4k@60fps rec, game starting to get bigger(ever heard of rumored PS game port) 128GB is needed for future proofing especially in flagship, not to mention the growing size of an OS every year
I think the best is 64 + microSD .
Of course 128 and 256 is even better but not necessary for most people as long as there is card slot .
Peoples Claim Android Have More Than Millions Application But No One Download Even 100..... Only If Ur Hard Gamer or Movie Lover Then 256 Right Choice...... I Have Used Windows Phone Lumia 640 Which Is Only 8gb But My 32gb Memory Card Uses All....5gb Applications In Memory Card....... For Normal 64gb Is Good Otherwise 256gb Awesome :)
Every bloody device should have an sd card slot..
Stuff Google and its stupid ideas on "security" why not an sd card,compared to some of the huge great holes android has,an sd card is secure and its in MY possession,why should I be forced to have to upload MY data to some cheapo insecure cloud system run by greedy idiots like Apple or Google,I don't trust them and like to keep MY data in my pocket..
There will always be someone making devices with card slots,they will gain at others cost..
I don't care how good nexus,pixels or A's are,no slot,no me buyee..
128GB + microSD is the ideal option, but I've voted for 64gb as it seems to be the best option in regards to price to performance ratio granted it comes with a microSD slot.
64 GB built-in + 64 GB SD-card is okay, but it's not like I have plenty of free storage space left on my phone. 256 GB would be the best.
How about 64GB with the option for microSD as well? Like my current device.
this poll is just useless...
Its like asking how much money would you like to have? Much? A lot? Lots of?
Its obvious that more = better.
Best part is that actual cost and difficulty to use of eg 128/256GB chips in phones compared to eg 32/64GB is not really that big today. Few years ago it would be a problem and you would need to spend more on it, but today? It should be less than 40 bucks difference, and Im really overstates it because OEMs like Samsung that have its own chips cloud do that for 5bucks.
Of course its not so simple like changing pendrive from 16GB to 128GB, but today technology is cheap and advanced enough to do that for less than 50-150$ like some companies ask(hellooo Apple).
And if OEM have bunch of 32GB chips in storage that they need to use? Just sell them to some cheap chinese companies... everyone will be happy.
