    I went with the 128GB version of the phone. Historically, I've always recorded video at 1920 (2k)? Anyway, now that we get unlimited storage from Google Drive is there any reason not to do everything in 4k and simply move it all to the cloud?

    I would say yes. 1920x1080 is full hd btw. 2k is 2048x1556.

    It's already been confirmed it does.

    It depends.

    - 60fps at 1080 is better for sports or fast moving action. I always prefer 60fps video myself.
    - For more static subjects without fast panning, etc 4K is great.
    - Also, while you get the unlimited cloud storage, you still will have to periodically delete videos on your phone more frequently to ensure you don't fill up your storage - if you always shoot 4K. If you get the 128GB model, this is less of an issue.

    Don't need to record in 4k all the time. Day to say regular stuff you can record in 1080p. If any function like birthday and parties you can record in 2k. If your out on travel to great scenic places then definitely use 4k so you can preserve those memories at the best possible resolution.

    You'll eventually have a 4K TV if you don't already. Plus it's free to store full res vid in the cloud. A no brainer 4K every day.

    It was no use to record everything in 4k. Recording your friend sleeping in 4k? No. Recording your doughter mariage in 4k? Absolutely yes. But it's all depend on you. You may take more time just to save your 4k vid's on the cloud. Just my opinion.

    You're going to go into settings and change the quality based on what you're about to film. That makes no sense.

    Going back and forth from 1080P to 4k takes all of 5 button presses and about 10 seconds to go from the camera screen to change resolution and back (at least, on my Nexus 6 - TBD on Pixels). If you're concerned about running low on available storage for the video(s) you'll be shooting before you get to where you can upload it (and 4k generates much larger file sizes), makes perfect sense.

    If you aren't concerned about running out of storage (before you are able to upload your video files) then there's no effective benefit, and if you want to maximize your ability to record 4k extensively without this concern, it could be a factor in determining if going with the 128GB may be worth the additional cost.
