    I have had the ballistic nylon 32G Turbo for a week now and really love the phone. Now that I have used it I wonder if I should exchange it for the 64G. With the larger file sizes for the photos and videos I wonder if they will eat up the 32G pretty fast. Are you getting the 32G or 64G and why? Any thoughts?

    I had the same dilemma. Went back and forth between the two but finally settled on the 64. In the end, I didn't want to regret not having enough storage.

    Good luck with your decision.

    I have had several 32gb phones over the years. I always found myself getting close the the limit. I chose the 64 myself just to make sure I have plenty of space. Might as well for only a few dollars more in my opinion.

    with the size of the high quality apps this thing can run and the size of photos, it is definitely worth the extra 50 bucks for 64gb. Plus you get that sexy red line under the droid logo

    Had a 64gb turbo and traded it for the 32gb bn one. Never have come close to even using 16gb so I'll be all set. Plus I like it better without the red.

    For the fifty buck difference it has to be the 64gb version. You'll make the money back when you sell it for the next device.

    I have the 64 GB model because there's no external memory slot.

    I'll politely disagree. I find when you look at postings on craigslist, people are shopping by price and I don't think you even come close to getting back much of the $50, or even any of it. However, for a 1 or 2 year phone the $50 is not a deal breaker.

    I think many here were spot on. Look at your past usage. For me I never ended up even close to needing my previous 32's

    Okay, maybe it fits better for people that switch devices frequently. I rarely keep a device longer than 6 months. I always get more money for a device with more than 16gb storage. In this case more money for a 64gb versus a 32gb.

    Check out Swappa.

    Go big or go home. I always liked having the latest n greatest of technology. Even if I didn't use up all the memory, I'd still get the 64gb, hell if there was a 1tb, I'd probably get that one lol

    Vrrroooom pssshhh! *Droid Turbo posting sound*

    Not having a microsd slot is the big reason we went 64gb.

    That and the spiffy red bar below the Droid logo

    I left the store with a 32 gig, going back to exchange for a 64. Dumb on my part. I wash on a hurry to get in and out. Didn't think it through at the time. Going to cost me a few dollars, but hope to be with it in the long run.

    32 here. I have never come close to using that much on any phone I have owned and if I do I can just move it on to the computer to make space.

    64GB I would rather have a lot of empty space than not enough!

    Due to the specs of the camera and use in my job, I need mobile storage for high resolution pictures and videos so went with the 64GB. Even 'empty' of my stuff, it's still gobbling up nearly 15GB of that amount for just the phone and basic apps. That would be nearly half of the 32GB phone. I tend to buy and keep devices (had the last one for nearly a decade) so tend to buy with future needs in mind. Originally, I had looked at the Note4 because it had external storage options and an easily replaceable battery but decided on the Moto because of build quality and a slightly smaller footprint. For an additional 25% on contract, I felt the 64GB was a good investment.

    $50 really is a pittance to double your available storage whether you end up needing it or not. If the phone had a micro sd card slot, my answer would be different, but it doesn't.

    What needs to be considered is the large MP camera, the 4k video capability, and the advancing app technology. All of those can lead to 25gbs drying up really quick. Even past usage may not dictate future needs. Sure, you can move pics and vids to your computer to clear space, but I'd rather not have to worry about the extra step.

    I went with 32gb. Have never come close to hitting 32gb in the past, if I do come close I'll export and delete some photos and video.

    Also I feel like I am the only person on all of AC that got a Black Metalized Glass Fiber Turbo... Sure the Nylon felt cool but I was worried I'd get sick of it plus I LOVE the way the MGF sticks to my hand and way it looks from different angles.

    50$ for 32 additional internal gigs, no brainer. Especially if you prefer BN

    I plan on getting a Turbo in a month when I'm eligible for my upgrade and 32 or 64 is a big decision I have to make. I have a couple of concerns about the BN. It looks great but it's new and we don't know how it will hold up over time. Also, I want to get a case and it seems that there are some problems with cases fitting the BN. Plus although having the 64 GB would be great I just don't know if I really need that much.

    In a month there will be many more options as far as cases. New phone right now and companies that make after market accessories are gearing up.

    Easy, just get the 32GB in the other Turbo finish and then you can limit your agonizing to color choice.

    I love my 64GB and that outweighs the case. I did pay for the Tech 21 case in VZW store to stay will. It literally just feel to hard floor not a scratch on case or phone

    Sent using my Verizon Turbo charged 64GB Ballistic Nylon phone unfortunately with a case on back

    I probably would have gotten the 64gb because in the scheme of things $50 more is well worth it, however I didn't want the Ballistic Nylon. The BN display model's casing had a gap in it just below the screen and I think it was because of the BN. In addition I really like the black (non-ballistic) model a lot. That is what I got and I love it...it is also less slippery than the red model. I will say this however, photos take up about 5-6 mg's. I asked the Verizon rep about this before I bought it and he said they may use about 2.5 mg's... big difference if you keep a lot of photos on the phone. Nevertheless I think 32 gb's for many people will be plenty. I have loaded lots of apps on it already and I have taken several photos and videos and still have 20 gigs free. Nevertheless, if you are going to load a lot of photos, movies, etc. you may want the 64 gigs. I don't understand why they don't make the non-BN models with the 64 gig option...I am sure this will happen at a future time and date. Great phone either way you go...enjoy!
