How much storage do you have on your phone?

I remember owning the Nokia N95 8GB which, at the time, was a huge amount of storage. Now the Galaxy Note 9 is out which offers 1 terabyte (512GB + 512GB microSD).

I think a terabyte is a bit overkill, but my 3 phones don't have microSD capability and two of them are 64GB and the third 128GB. Even that is more than I could use. I bought the Honor 10 128GB to have a taste of android and because my music collection would fit onto it although I haven't got round to that yet. Also, I stream a lot but like the option of local storage. When I was in hospital they didn't have wi-fi and streaming video would cause a huge dent in my data usage. I solved this by downloading a few films prior to my stay.

How much do you use/need? What is your sweet spot? Do you keep lots of music, movies and other files or do you get by with relatively little storage?

Re: How much storage do you have on your phone?

I always get a phone with expandable storage - just in case.
However, I like to use things made for the task, rather than a jack of all trades / master of none - the mobile.

I'll generally use a Nikon dslr for photography and I use high resolution music players for my music.

If, as you, I was in hospital etc, I'd rather use a tablet than a mobile for the larger screen.

I only have a basic mobile phone and not a smart phone and it only stores about 50 texts.

Re: How much storage do you have on your phone?

Are you on about a house phone or a mobile? I don't have any storage on a mobile because I don't have one.

Why is it that everyone assumes that everybody has a mobile phone???????

Your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere - how far do you think you'd walk to find a phonebox?

No, they're not for everyone, but can be a lifesaver sometimes.

Re: How much storage do you have on your phone?

I forgot mine last week when I went down to Ocean Terminal, my nearest big shopping centre. It was pretty hard work - 30 minutes - to find a taxi to get me back home and I couldn't have managed to walk or get the bus.

Mobiles really are lifesavers. Although I now have a landline, I didn't always and needed my phone if I had to call 999.

64Gb of which 20Gb is being used. 13Gb of that is used by the Android `Oreo` operating system.
