    Just picked this bad boy up at Frys for $79.99 just wondering if it will work on the S3.... I don't see why it wouldn't but just curious...

    I bought the 32gb just so I would have no regrets. I'm currently using 3gbs of my internal storage. As long as you have an sd, it doesn't matter what size the phone is.

    If a person puts 12GB of apps on their phone, I would think they have a problem.

    I do have a problem and that is people imposing their own standard on me.

    If you are a gamer and like the newer 3d games, it will not take long to fill that up.

    I have a 32gb and a 64gb, so by your standard, I am an absolute deviant.

    I travel a lot and do not like relying in WiFi, so clouds are only good for shade and rain for me.

    There will always be a handful of extreme users, which it appears you may be you little devil . But the majority of users will likely never come close to filling it based on current app development.

    In future development, apps likely will be created to have a larger footprint as the internal storage on phones grows, so 12GB in a couple of years may not go as far as it does today.

    What is the biggest app you have installed, and what size is it?

    Not regretting my decision to get the 16GB at all.

    12GB for apps.
    29GB for music, pictures, videos, etc.
    51.5GB of Dropbox storage from buying the Sprint version.

    I just love this thing<3

    This here for me too.

    Being able to keep a load of apps, music and recorded pictures/videos on the phone, and being able to swap a mSD card between the phone and the tablet is worth $50 for me.

    With my old phone (Droid 3) I was constantly having to move pictures and videos taken with the phone to Dropbox, which meant I couldn't access them at the drop of a hat sometimes when needed. Now I have some insurance that I have space on my phone and data on the phone will stay on the phone regardless of where the SD card is located.

    Perhaps not a big deal for some, but it is for me.

    Also, just FYI, if you get a cheap OTG cable, you can access USB sticks and even USB disk drives on the phone. That is another option for you.

    16 gig is likely enough for some. However, as someone already alluded to, apps are getting bigger and bigger already. Some fancy pants games can be over a half gig. Remember, it's not about what your phone needs are today but what they will be in 12, even 16 months.

    Double the ROM for $250 was worth it for me. (Yes, even is some stores were selling the 16 gig for $150)

    As long as your phone meets your needs for the next 20 months or however long you want to keep it then you'll be okay.

    To each their own.

    Some are close to 2 gigs today.

    I suppose sometime in the next few months some enterprising dev will figure out a way to re-enable moving apps to the SD card.

    Alternatively developers that make games with large memory requirements could store some of their resources on the external card if available.

    I settled on 32gb. Added a class 6 SDXC 64gb card. For many of the same reasons already posted.

    Ad Network Detector reports 372 apps. Manage Applications reports 5.7gb used, 21gb free.

    The SGS3 is awesome!
