STOR­AGE – HOW MUCH YOU NEED?

Consumer Voice - - Comparative Test -

As users ne­glect the reg­u­lar MP3 play­ers, point-and-shoot cam­eras and por­ta­ble video cam­eras, stor­age space is quickly be­com­ing an im­per­a­tive fea­ture. What is more, the price changes sig­nif­i­cantly be­tween dif­fer­ent lev­els of stor­age. So, how much space do you ac­tu­ally need?

You ac­tu­ally don’t need a lot of it – a min­i­mum of eight gi­ga­bytes should be enough. That an­swer may sound ap­palling and silly to some users, since a phone con­stantly has to store in­for­ma­tion. How­ever, with the preva­lence of cloud stor­age ser­vices such as Google Drive, Mi­crosoft Sky Drive and Drop­box, an aver­age user can live off a mea­gre eight gi­ga­bytes of stor­age. Buy a phone with ex­pand­able stor­age and use cloud stor­age ser­vices to save space

and money.

Since those ser­vices of­fer a lot of stor­age for free, you can use them to save your pho­tos and documents and keep phone stor­age clut­ter in check.

What phones pro­vide the best stor­age op­tions? As al­ready men­tioned, pric­ing changes sig­nif­i­cantly be­tween dif­fer­ent stor­age vari­ants of some phones. How­ever, that usu­ally oc­curs with the de­vices that do not of­fer ex­ter­nal stor­age. There­fore, buy­ing a phone with ex­pand­able stor­age is the best choice. Buy­ing additional stor­age is rel­a­tively cheap. Many phones of­fer 32 GB or more of ex­pand­able stor­age. So, buy­ing a phone with a lot of in­ter­nal stor­age is not re­ally a ne­ces­sity.
