    This is so unacceptable and it doesn't even seem to be fast storage either. I have Note 10+ and the base model is 256GB fast storage.

    How much more would have cost Google to make that 128gb base? For the love of GOD. so annoying.
    I know this is going to come across as a slam and for that I am sorry. I needed a good laugh to start my work week off. You did it. I am 35, when reading your post, all I could think about was the old mallrat Ashley meme, the blonde girl who was not bright, getting annoyed about something that doesn't affect the mainstream lol.

    Thank you

    No worries. You all have our different opinions. Thanks for being polite doing it hahaha. Not bashing the phone. It will be a great one. Just annoyed for what Google charges for 64gb in return.

    I don't know what you plan on putting on the phone but I have 128gb P4XL with 100gb fee space. I was going to buy the 64gb one but my brother convinced me to get the 128. I will go with a 64gb next time

    With the free Google Photos storage for Full Resolution 64GB is fine with me. My 2XL is 64GB and haven't ran into any storage constraints. But yeah 128GB should be standard.

    This. Google phone using google services, most of your stuff is cloud based. 64gb is plenty for these people. even now on my 2xl, 45gb of 64gb used, I can clear up almost 10 gigs by removing my photos and videos saved on my device because i have a full quality copy saved online. 64gb is still plenty of space, for most. We will likely see the storage bump next year.

    Dang, really? That sucks. I mean I still pay for 2TB of Google storage but it was nice to know that my Photos and Videos from my Pixel didn't count against that.

    My suggestion - stick with your Note 10+, which is an awesome phone, and remember the old saying, if you don't have anything nice to say, say nothing.
    I agree. I have the Note 10+ with 512 GB of storage. While I would not find 64 GB working for me, you need to understand the Google Pixel experience is different. Google expects you to be connected 24x7. Chrome OS has the same mindset. Designed for very little disconnected time. For many this experience works.

    Personally for my needs and the amount of travel I have, being disconnected for long periods of time just happens. I am in many places where connections are expensive, when available. I personally don't want to have downtime because I can't edit a PowerPoint presentation or other types of docs. I also just don't like to stream my media, again this is my personal preference.

    I know my use case is probably anathema to my Google Pixel diehards. I am OK with that. I use Android because of the flexibility of the system. I choose my phone based on my needs. I am a bit SPen user to take notes in meetings. They key point is to use the device that works best for you.

    Yes, this is disappointing. But I have enough storage anyway. It was a great selling point for the Pixels previously though.

    After seeing the announcement of the lack of support for all photos in original format.... 64 gigs is a bit too small. It is strange how context really changes everything?

    I knew you would see the light eventually lol. Taking that away and keep base at 64gb is NUTS.

    64GB isn't "cheaper" they are just sticking small storage at a premium price and you pay for it. Doesn't even matter if people use it or not.
    This is so true. I can live with 64, but it requires constant maintenance. It costs them next to nothing to make the base 128 GB. This is better than when the options were 32 GB and 128 GB (the first two Pixels), though.

    I personally would get the 128 and be done. Such as with my iPhone I went 256 since that was the next. For me I want more then the 64 -- but I know that majority of users can't fill 64 or won't. Not from their day to day use.
    Some people need more memory because they don't have unlimited data for music streaming etc. That's my situation. So I put a lot of my music library onto the phone so I need more than 64 gigs. But it is different for every user. Some need more, some need less.
