    I'm having a hard time trying to get over the fact that the OS takes up so much space.

    Anyone going the 64 GB route?

    32 is usually fine for me on android.

    I got the 64. From what the articles have said, it'll have about 55ish free, which is pretty normal these days. It's what my 64GB iPad had and I haven't come close to filling that up yet.

    Depends on 2 things

    first, what's available and how long you want to wait

    two, how offline-capable do you need/want it to be.

    Last one stroked a chord with me.

    I really don't do anything offline. Since I have unlimited data. I'm thinking more 32GB. My N5 currently is 32, but I have roughly 18 left

    not sure.... Would 128g really resell for $200 (or whatever the price diff would be) more than 32 g one?

    I'm going with the 64g version, what ever the resale value will be the 64g will be a little more desirable I think

    I went with 64 gigs because I'm sure it will be more than I need, but I like the extra amount because I might throw some more things on it since the screen is sounding so nice. 128 gigs was way overkill for me.

    With the 32GB having 23GB of free space, that leaves me with 55GB of free space on my 64GB black sapphire AT&T GS6.

    Ended up going with 128. I take a lot of photos and have a lot of apps.

    No chance.


    I ended up going with the 32GB. I've only used about 12GB on my S3. I don't store any local music or video. Only stuff I have that takes up space is apps and photos/videos and even the photos/videos I can upload into the cloud to free up space if need be.

    Nope, it won't. 128gb iPhones have the worst resell.

    If that's really your reason, you're better off getting a version with less memory.

    Where did you preorder, I wasn't aware that128GB were up for preorder on a carrier?

    AT&T's site. I have plenty of wireless chargers so I went through them instead of best buy. Great deal though, thought I'd let someone else get it. Plus, to my knowledge, best buy doesn't have 128gb's yet..?

    32 is plenty big for me. I have just under 14 GB saved on my current phone. That will leave me trying to figure out how to cram more crap onto the phone.

    I wasn't able to pre-order an AT&T 128GB S6 anywhere (AT&T site, Best Buy site, Amazon.com).

    Curious how you were able.

    Not sure man. I'm pretty unlucky usually. Example: the sticky thread about ordering phones? The AT&T store messed up so bad I had to turn around, go back, and completely cancel the order. Once I was home I went online through My AT&T, pre-ordered a black s6 edge 128gb with a ship date of april 8.

    With 32gb of useable space, I would agree. Had two Best Buy gift cards, one of which I got with my preorder. I am selling back my GS4 and my BB9900. I was able to rationalize the 64GB on a new two year contract with AT&T.

    I would tend to agree as even one of the AC forum ambassadors made a point of uncertain resale value of the 128GB. Still. Great for all that get that storage size.

    How much are they giving you?
