    My moto x is 16 gb, but I am thinking about getting the new moto x with 32 gb.

    Any answer please to a question.

    Since the new moto x has a memory card slot for a card up to 128 gb's, is there any point in paying extra for a 32gb phone?

    Is there any real advantage in having the memory in the phone rather than on a card?

    Yeah, some apps can't be saved to SD card. So if you plan on using your phone for gaming or what not it might be better to have the internal storage. But for the most part you'll usually be able to get by with the 16gb. Back in the day I hated having 2 patricians personally....it's been a while since I've used an SD card so maybe it's a smoother experience. But since for the most part Google has swayed away from SD cards, I do kinda doubt it's perfectly seamless.

    Well internal memory is faster and more reliable. Also apps are more reliable when running on internal.

    For example on my g4 saving burst shots on the sd card on my sd takes a very long time.

    I will be getting a 32 GB I believe -- the 16 GB just sounds too small for me .. and the 64 just seems overkill. I am lucky and have unlimited data so I stream a ton of content which helps with saving space. I only download my huge playlists from Google Play Music to my device when going on road trips where I will hit "edge" spots.

    That is my main use for the memory... well that and pictures. I backup my pics online though so if I had to remove some one day due to space I could without worry.

    I'm not sure which way I'm going to go. With the SD card changes in Android M, a person could quickly boost their internal storage by formatting the SD card. Granted, you would lose the ability to use the SD card in other devices, but you it would increase internal storage.

    I'm going with the 32 gig. My 2013 Moto X is 32 gigs and I have never wanted for more with it. The SD card will help on the Style as I can make sure my pictures/vids load to it before they are uploaded to the cloud and won't have to be so diligent about deleting them on my phone.

    same here, still on grandfathered VZ unlimited (plus 27% discount and $15 off for bringing my own phone). the 32GB is perfect for me.

    I'm aiming for 32GB. Don't forget how big those pictures and videos will be so 16GB + SD Card could lead to a lot of moving of media. Personally, I'd use an SD Card for music, and only music. I had too many problems with EVERY SD Card I've ever used in any mobile device to want to have to rely on one.

    I'm buying the 64GB so I can maximize storage capacity.

    64+128=192GB.

    Since you can offload all of your pictures and music to an SD card, I would rather spend $50 on a 128 gig card and get the 32 gig model of the phone. My current original Moto X is 32 gigs and I have never had any need for more than that. But, I don't store any music on it and I upload all of my pictures and videos to Google photos and then delete them off my phone. I stream my music. I am a lucky grandfathered Verizon unlimited data plan user.

    I always go big, get the full 64GB with a 128GB microSD (or I may use my 64GB microSD) but you can't add more internal storage where apps are kept so for a few bucks more 64GB is better.

    I think I overheard that the SD slot was optional via Motomaker.

    I hope they were referring to selling you a memory card rather than upselling you on the slot.

    To my knowledge you get the SD card no matter what -- buying an SD card though is optional. Kind of like my G4.

    I think I will decide once we know how much usable space we will get on the new Moto X. My 2014 Moto X has 10.2GB of usable storage which has been fine (I still have around 2.5GB remaining) and the only thing I would do with more storage would be to have more offline music in Google Music, keep more pictures on my phone, and more videos via Plexsync. All three of these things would work perfectly on an SD card of which I already have a very good 32GB one so as long as the usable space stays around 10-11GB I will likely save the $50 and stick with 16GB.

    How are you getting the $15 off with an unlimited data plan? I was told customer service it was unavailable for those of us with unlimited data.

    I'm getting a discount on my unlimited data plans because of my employee discount through my employer. I pay $14.99 a month on both my lines for unlimited data.

    it just kicked in August 1st (my 2 year contract was up July 17th) ... I called to get Asurion's phone number so I could remove insurance on my S4, I also wanted to confirm I was getting the 27% corporate discount, which I did after responding via company email.

    The rep told me I qualify for a $15 discount since I now owned my phone outright as of June 17th. I've been a customer since 1998, maybe that has something to do with it, or maybe something with the employer? I really don't know but I didn't ask questions, saving $15 on top of 27% for the best network in my area (45 minutes outside Philly) sounded like a pretty sick deal to me!

    That said, I had thought previously what you're saying, which is why I didn't even bother mentioning it to the rep, so now I'm a little skeptical. I won't get the bill I guess till August 20th so I'll definitely confirm that with you guys. In the meantime I'll call tmrw as a random caller or shoot them an IM and let you know what they say.

    If they somehow messed up I don't want to bring attention to it. And if that isn't the case, I'd actually rather get the $15 discount then the unlimited plan. I'm almost always on Wi-Fi and don't use much data at all.

    32gb here too. I've never needed to put an SD card in any 32gb devices I've owned. I usually run about 18gb free. But I'm glad there is the ability to throw in an SD card if I ever want one.

    Yep, had 32 on both my 2013 and 2014 X's. Thought about going 16 and getting an sd card with the new X, but I'd rather stick with all on board storage and not deal with sd cards anymore.
