    I'm about to get a Note 5, and I was wondering which size I should go for (32 or 64 GB)? I'm haven't used too much space on my Note 2 right now, but adding in to the fact that operating systems tend to take a lot of room, I was wondering if 32 might not be enough. What have people opted for?

    I was going to get the 32GB, but at the time the 64GB was $80 more so I was like what the heck. I ended up getting the 64 and have movies downloaded on it for my kids to watch when we are on trips.

    It would depend on what all you plan to put on the phone. I take a lot of pictures and I also have like 5k songs so the 64 works for me although my songs use 30gb.

    I see...I don't take that many pictures, so all I really have on my phone is some games/apps, some songs, and that's about it. I guess I'll go for the 32 then

    I went with the 64 simply because the OS keeps getting bigger and bigger. I use the cloud for alot but have about 75 apps on my phone. I still have around 40gb left. But I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    With a 32, I'd be down to 8 gb left. That's too close for comfort in my opinion.

    May I ask how much memory the OS needs?

    I have the same usage as you, just pictures and apps mostly, and 32 is perfectly fine. I'd go for that!

    I have about 100 pictures and around 150 stored songs on Spotify and I am using half of the 32 gigs. See screen shot below.

    On my 64GB out of the box it had 51.X GB available. So a little over 12GB was consumed by the phone/OS. Don't know how large it will be, but remember the new OS marshmallow is just around the corner

    I have the 32. I use Google photos and it has a feature where it will delete doubles between your phone and Google photos. It deletes them off your phone, and frees up storage. Kinda cool and something to think about.

    Why?

    Because I am sometimes in areas of low signal /low speeds, not sufficient to smoothly stream video on demand.

    Agree with 64, why, because it was only $100 and I can afford it.

    I have the 64GB. Use Google Photos for video/ photos and use Spotify/Google Music. I just use cloud. I have all my apps loaded and have 51GB left. I def could have used a 32GB but $100 extra it was a no brainer.

    Within a week of the 32 GB version, I had about 2 GBs left. I had about 1/100 of my music library on there, but I had some videos, games (ported some games that took a lot of space), and the misc section just kept getting bigger for some reason. Getting a 64 GB version soon.

    May I ask how big your videos are? I don't have videos on my phone, so I'm wondering if I can make do with just 32GB if I don't have things that take up a bunch of memory.

    They are TV episodes of 400-500 mb each.
