    I owned a 32 GB Nexus 6P that ended up lost. That's the reason I'm considering 3rd party insurance over Google Device Protection: the lack of coverage for loss/theft. Without that, the policy is worthless.

    I don't download media to my phone's storage. The bulk of the storage is used for apps, photos (that end up getting uploaded to the cloud anyway), word documents, etc. 32 GB should be fine, no?

    I'd definitely go with the 128G version. As for device protection, if it gives you peace of mind, I say do it. Better to be safe than sorry.

    I still haven't found a need for more than 32 GB, so I'd chose to save a few bucks.

    I just got the Moto Z Force about a month ago. It's 32Gb and has SD card, so I wasn't too concerned. I've installed every app I use and then some, and only used 14 of the 23GB available. I have a 128GB SD card installed but haven't really touched it. I also do not store much media on my device. The photos are all on Google Photos, so not many kept local.

    If I were buying, I'd save the money and go 32GB.

    I've used 70 GB on my 6P. It's always better to go with more. If you go with 32 GB (of which you're really not getting 32 GB for apps/media because of the OS partition) and suddenly need more space, you're out of luck.

    It seems that the Blue Pixel is only available with 32 gb of ram.

    128 and 'yes' on the protection. I have a 6P with a cracked screen right now.

    32 or 128G?....well depends on your needs. I would get device protection based on the cost of this device. That's just me.

    128GB for sure. 32GB is just enough to get by.

    I got device protection for the first time ever, just because of the cost. If I had to buy a new one, that's another 900 gone. This way, if I break it, I'll only have to pay an addition $79 deductible.

    I've never broken a phone before, but it didn't bother me too much because I always had cheap options available.

    I grabbed one with 32GB. I don't install many apps or anything, so I think 32GB will be plenty for me. I also got the protection plan. *piece of mind*.

    If Device Protection covered loss and theft, I would buy it. I'm shopping around for 3rd party insurance.

    P.S.
    The 128 GB is all sold out.

    I just looked at my N6P and I've used 9 GB of the 111 GB available. I think I should've ordered a 32 GB Pixel.

    I'd pick the 128 GB version, you never know when you might need more space. Also definitely go for the device protection, just in case.

    Keep checking. One of the guys on my team did and it pops back for a short time.

    It popped up again, but it says 6-7 weeks. I placed an order anyway, but is there any chance it will come sooner?

    I am hoping they will start shipping them earlier than stated so we can all get them .

    I went with 128 due to the lack of a SD card slot. Ordered my device from Project Fi and opted for their $5 a month damage coverage. It's not that much more than the Play Store damage coverage at the end of 2 years, and allows me to keep coverage if I decide to go into years 3 or 4.

    I've decided to buy an insurance policy from Worth Ave. Group. They cover all the things Device Protection does, as well as loss and theft.

    If you plan on doing a good deal of video recording (especially if your preference is 4k), get the 128. Sure, Google is providing unlimited cloud storage, but it can only back it up so quickly, so if you were to keep a 32gb model even 50-75% full, you might find yourself noticeably affected by the difference (plus, with whatever storage size you choose, bear in mind that a fixed chunk is reserved for the OS (a greater % of usable storage when mapped against 32gb vs 128), and that as you approach capacity you'll find general phone performance beginning to deteriorate (or at least that's been my experience)).
