    Pixel 2, OP5, Mate 10 pro, and iPhone doesn't have the micro SD slot. Some people don't need that much space, they just take pictures and browse social media. I have a 128GB micro SD card in addition to the whopping 64GB internal storage. Seems like a crazy amount and limitless storage (more is always better) but I have been collecting MP3s for over a decade and I still have lots of eBooks, podcasts, and DJ mixes... still enjoy listening to it.. sure there's Spotify but you have to pay for it, plus you don't have your own collection plus annoying ads. Let's not get into cloud storage... it's not the same.. I don't have unlimited data nor sufficient cloud storage... plus the time to upload everything online.

    I remember when the Samsung Galaxy S6 only had 32GB... that angered a lot of people so they brought it back. There has to be a demand and voice for people to keep these features... And also depends how greedy the manufacturer is taking away basic features and charging more for storage options, telling you "you don't need it".

    What size memory card, if any, do you have and what do you have mostly stored on there?

    An old 16GB card. Basically the only thing in there are downloaded Spotify music on high quality. I'm looking to buy a 128GB card though. My tablet has a 32GB card full of books, so videos don't fit anymore. Will probably just swap. I'm fine with 32GB internal memory for phone use, but that's not enough for media. 16GB isn't enough to download the music at extreme quality (320kbps).

    I don't really keep a lot of stuff on my phone. I mean I've used up like 15GB on my phone for apps and pictures, and I'm quite satisfied already.

    I have a 200 GB card. I use it for my music mainly, since I have FLAC files, and also for my pictures.

    I have a 32 GB card in my phone, mostly used for media and I move some apps to it to free more space on the internal storage. I like to have a lot of apps so it's easier to do stuff on the go without dealing with websites and stuff instead.

    I have a 128Gb card that holds my entire FLAC music library and a few MP4 movies. Without it there's no way I could carry my music library, as nearly all of it is in FLAC rather than the more-compressed (and crappier-sounding) MP3 format. With the nice DAC in the V20, and good headphones, you can DEFINITELY hear the difference.

    No but I like the option. Using a card can sometimes eat your battery so I get by with 64 gb and use streaming audio for music

    I literally just put a Samsung Evo Select 128GB in yesterday. I downloaded all of my Google Play Music playlist, I got about 50GB.

    The rest will be for pictures/video

    I use the 200gb card I got for free when I bought my V10. However, I have always used a card, if the device supported it, for music and other media. For example, when I travel, I download a couple of movies at home for backup entertainment and then I can watch them without streaming.

    Also, the use of a card makes changing devices much easier. You don't have to reinstall music (time consuming) and can save then reinstall backups of playlists and system settings.

    I have 64gb SD card in addition to my 32gb internal yet am almost out. Use a lots of apps and media files cause of my work.
    Planning of buying bigger SD. For internal no matter how big it is, I will always want an SD card in addition. One thing I do is shoot high quality video with my phone.
    Keeping that and other personal stuffs from my phone internal is how I rock.

    f no! imo, take the card out, throw it on the ground, stomp on it, light it on fire, film it in 240 fps slo-mo, post that on youtube and then hit the thumbs down button on yourself. Then glue the slot back and call Google and tell them to stop supporting this crap until they figure out how to do it in a secure and seamless manner... and "adoptable storage" is not it. also... buy 128 GB (or more) phones!

    When I had a Priv, I had a 128 gig SD card on which I stored all pics, vids, and music along with all documents. Now that I have the 5T which doesn't have that capability, I use Drive and also back up to my computer.

    I use a 128GB SD card. I have a rather large collection of downloaded Mp3 files as well as a large collection of downloaded music from Amazon Prime unlimited. In addition I have a large library of photos and videos of my kids and grandkids. Although I use Google Photos and Amazon Prime photo's for my pictures, I have both apps set to not upload videos in order to conserve data. I've chosen the SD card as the default in case I have to do a FDR so they would not be lost from the main memory. Having expandable storage as well as a swappable battery were the two main reasons I went wit the V20.

    I have a 64GB card in My LG G5 phone and same in my Samsung tab pro 8.4
    I moved the one in the G5 from my old Samsung S5. Both cards have music and videos on them. The tablet more mp4 video than anything. The phones card has pics from the camera, some documents, all the mp3 I bought from Amazom and some of my own I been collecting since the days of Napster and 56k modems. I listen to a lot of music at the gym and at work, if I cancel my Xm radio I will be using it in the Jeep too.

    My ZTE ZMAX Pro has 32GB built-in storage and if you're a gamer, that's not enough storage space because a lot of games now take up a lot of space. Some apps/devices allow you to move the game data to the memory card (Amazon Fire TV 2nd Gen for example, which BTW was discontinued because they knew people were using the Amazon Fire TV for other entertainment purposes).

    When flying on an airplane, WiFi isn't free so a bigger space for movies, games, and audio books would come in handy.

    Holy moley, that's huge! That'll be my next upgrade, I've waited years for the 128GB price to drop.. just like I waited years for the 1TB SSD price to drop... totally worth it. For VR content, a 256GB micro SD would help alot.. though actually it's not 256GB but probably more like 215GB (all memory cards are actually a little less in size for software drivers).

    Exactly, been doing this for the past several years and for each Android phone. Couldn't do it when Samsung slashed it on the Galaxy S6 though.

    FLAC + the V20's DAC = eargasm! I don't have much FLAC files but 320kbps MP3s sounds amazing still and is more common. Higher quality requires more storage space.

    Try plugging in your V20 into studio speakers.. I have Mackies MR5 MKIII with subwoofer... plug in the aux jack and WOW! Sounds better than my laptop sound card...

    yeah, screw the cloud... they reduce the quality of your files like pictures..

    And you're right, phones nowadays can shoot UHD and 60fps, eats up lots of storage space so you can never have too much space.
