    Default How much phone memory is enough? How much do you use?

    post what takes up memory in your devices in this format:

    Device Name:
    Internal Memory capacity:
    Memory Card capacity:

    Other Docs:

    Cloud Storage:
    When it comes to memory in smartphones, esp while recommending purchases, was wondering how much memory is enough for a typical user. have seen a lot of threads where just lowering the memory capacity brings devices into people's budgets. this is to guage how much memory gets used, and by what

    include podcasts in music, and vidcasts in videos, comix and e-books in documents.

    PS: don't worry about exactness, guesstimates will do

    eg, here's mine

    Device Name: iPhone 3GS
    Internal Memory capacity: 8GB
    Memory Card capacity: 0

    Apps: 3.7 GB
    Music: 0 GB
    Photos: 1.2 GB
    Videos: 0 GB
    Other docs: 0.5 GB

    Cloud Storage: 0.3 GB

    Storage , the more you have , the more you'd want. But the less you have , you'll find a way to manage.

    I think 8 GB is sufficient for a Smartphone [ many , many would disagree]

    There is no point in keeping 1000+ mp3s in your phone, one can do with their favourites playlist.

    Videos , takes up a lot of space , but again , no point in keeping 1080p videos on your phone.

    Photos ~ 1 GB , Apps ( incl. Games ) ~ 1 - 2 GB

    I have been using Nokia N73ME for the past five years with a paltry 2GB Mini SD

    I think 8Gb is enough for OS and Apps and all videos and entertainment media should be in external storage.

    I am soon going to buy phone..galaxy S3 or better.. and am gonna buy 16-32 GB card at least with it..

    Never satisfied with the capacity of memory cards . I always end up wanting more.
    BTW now I have an 8GB card that came bundled with my phone. Planning to upgrade to 16 GB or more when I get to see a good offer or sale
