    'Cause I'd be spending $50 extra and still have to spend time managing my files, 16GB doesn't spare me from the hassle I'd get with 8GB, so it doesn't benefit me. Whatever you want to say $50 is, that's $50 I could be spending on something rather than nothing.

    I'm all for saving money as well, I just don't see how 8 (which is prob under 6gb) can compare to just getting extra storage. How are you planning on managing just with 8?

    I'd save the money too if you can explain your method

    If the 16gb is sold out, I'll just get the 8 and save my $50.

    I just wish the smartphone makers would actually make the capacity we pay for available for storage.

    16 gb would be great if it had 16 gb available instead of 12

    Well the chips come in 8, 16, 32GB... the OS is ~1.5GB. Would it make you feel better if they just advertised it as a 14GB model? lol.

    Better than saying 16 but when you get the phone 25% isn't available

    Think its pretty understood at this point that you won't get the full 16GB (or whatever) that the device physically has. Not to mention that every single device will have different amounts available, as the stock software/firmware footprint isn't the same on every device.

    Don't think "Nexus 4 13.33GB" has the same zing to it as "Nexus 4 16GB"...

    My solution is the nexus 7 is the media device and the nexus 4 will be the utility device. So books, music, etc on my 7 (16gb) and audiobooks, manuals, social, internet radio on the 4 (16gb).

    I take a backpack to work everyday with documents, notes etc. Hauling the n7 hasnt been a pain since its been my phone for the last 2 months. And the n4 will fit quite well in that arrangement.

    Yeah i know, it's always like that with storage.

    I still find it annoying.

    Add some extra storage to make the AVAILABLE storage the stated capacity.

    I'm getting the Nexus 4 8GB...don't really use much internal storage currently with my GS3 so not worried about it. Cloud storage for all my photos or videos.

    Same way I manage with 8GB on my Lumia 710 or 8GB on my N95 or 8GB on my iPod touch or 2GB on my Curve 9300. I just have a small selection of music that I really like, handle the rest with Slacker, delete apps when I'm not using them anymore, clear out PDFs when I'm finished reading them, and so on.

    I haven't made any use of the cloud yet (although I have 25GB on 2 different SkyDrive accounts), so it's not even depending on that.

    If I had 16GB I'd still need to keep my music selection managed, would still need to delete PDFs and apps when I'm done, and would still make use of streaming media, just I wouldn't have to do it quite as often.

    Don't really like getting a HDD with Hundreds of MBs missing from TB HDDs to start off with because of the so called standards either but it happens, so it not really 16 GB to start with in the phone and it goes down from there, if it is 16GB it should be what it says....of course minus the Operating System.

    AND of course if you have to wait a week or so after in order to order it, you may be able to have your screen protectors and phone cases ready for when it does arrive, so really it would be better to wait since the people selling the protectors and cases are too.

    "rounding up" to the nicest number. Hard drives, always have to get the next size up to the one advertised if you need that exact room ...

    When consumers realize the capacity situation they feel ripped off when it is HDD or even usb, it is what it is, they don't per say round up, they go by the bytes, which is a loosely configured, some manufacturers have more capacity for the same GB than others, but it is also there in CD, DVD, Blu-Ray media as well because it is a storage media.

    When they advertise the phone as having a 16GB storage, they blindly don't realize that the OS and apps that are pre installed so that is true a misconception too, they should say with a storage capacity just over 13GB minus the OS and apps to drop the confusion, well really it is a hard way of telling anybody the capacity I guess, but it just simply comes down to the way it is advertised that knocks people senseless sometimes, even though they should have thought about it a bit rather than get upset.

    They should advertise it like this....."16GB with a storage capacity just over 13GB" and that should make people not so confused when they get there phone and they wont be so clueless to the storage dilemma.

    I might as well as wait for the 16GB version for another week or two anyways, I know me, and I see how everything is playing out, you will not be able to get a decent case until the actual release of the phone and I am liable to take it out of the box to show friends and family just to have it slip out of hand, desk or even a mis place in putting it in pocket and it lands right on the floor cracked or shattered, no, best to bet a good case before ordering.

    On the other hand, I know me, I am going to order if I can on the morning of the 13th, and if not then, after work on the 13.....I think I can manage to keep it in the box.....well open up to look at it anyway and wait for my case to come in from Hong Kong or China or......etc....

    My understanding is that it will release there on the 13th just as it will here in the US, according to Google's official blog:

    The short version is that it says this:

    Here are more details on when and where you can pick up your next Nexus device:

    Nexus 4: 8GB for $299; 16GB for $349; available unlocked and without a contract on 11/13 on the Google Play store in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. The 16GB version will also be available through T-Mobile for $199, with a 2-year contract (check here for more details).

    I'll get the 8GB anyway, my plan will be unlimited so I'll use the cloud for everything anyway. and use those 50 bucks to eat this week.
